Zeltiq

This non-surgical, non-invasive technique improves body contour, using a suction applicator with cooling plates on areas where fat reduction is desired. The plates are pressed against the selected body area. In a procedure that takes about an hour, that area is cooled to a temperature that kills fat tissue while leaving the outer skin cells unharmed. Within several days the destroyed fat cells begin to shrink and are then digested by and removed from the body through metabolic processes. Usually within two to four months, patients see a reduction in the area of fat targeted and an improvement in body contour. After the treatment is completed, patients may immediately return to their normal activities including work and exercise.

Zerona

This non-invasive body contouring procedure effectively removes excess fat using a low-level laser. Zerona’s low-level laser stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. Patients need six treatments every other day, for 40 minutes at a time; and can get back to normal activities immediately with absolutely no downtime, pain, swelling or any discomfort.
