ABINGDON, England, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Initial reports from Munich highlight positive results with the ZERONA laser
Trials of the non-invasive ZERONA® laser, manufactured by ERCHONIA in Munich, Germany, have demonstrated the significant body sculpting benefits of Low Level Laser Technology (LLLT), according to leading dermatologist Dr Patricia Ogilvie. "The ZERONA laser has a photochemical action, working on the parts of the body where fat is stored, and has been FDA-cleared for the non-invasive circumferential reduction of the waist, hips and thighs since 2010."
The ZERONA's cold laser technology uses low energy lasers to release fat from cells without destroying them, and this therapeutic approach delivers noticeable body contouring results without elevating cholesterol or triglyceride levels. Dr Ogilvie described the treatment: "In a series of 20 minute sessions, a laser beam is directed at the body at waist level on both the patient's front and back. After treatment, the fatty material drains into the lymphatic system and is removed naturally by the body. As a result, adjacent areas are also slimmed down and it is possible to achieve reductions in circumference of more than 10 cm; tissue also appears significantly firmer afterwards."
She added: "The procedure is totally painless - the patient feels absolutely nothing during treatment - and there are no risks involved." James Stringer, Vice President, European Sales, at Primcogent Solutions, commented: "We are delighted that Dr Ogilvie is having success with the ZERONA laser and look forward to seeing the results from the trials she will be undertaking."
Since these trials began, ERCHONIA has released the complementary ZERONA AD, which received US FDA clearance for the safe and effective reduction of upper arm circumference in May 2012.
