No, Zerona® is a non-invasive fat reduction method whereas laser liposuction is a type of surgical fat removal. We use Zerona® treatment at Abraham Medical Cosmetics to reduce fat and inches from patients’ hips, back, arms, and even buttocks. Zerona® applies a low-level laser to the treatment area that causes the fat within cells to emulsify and become absorbed by the lymphatic system. Most of our Snellville Zerona® patients see results after 4-6 sessions.
Conversely, laser liposuction uses the application of a laser to loosen fat and a series of incisions into which suctioning cannulas are inserted to remove the targeted fat. Most laser liposuction patients report a recovery period of 10-14 days following the surgery. Given the invasive nature of the procedure, we choose to offer non-invasive fat reduction and weight management alternatives such as LipoLite™, Curva™, and nutritional counseling.
