Fat is fat: Zerona freezes the fat not the organs. When the fat is resorbed it is processed no differently than other fat consumed in animal or vegetable form.

Zerona laser: Treatments are termed "cold" because they are low level intensity lasers that do not burn or cut tissues. Zerona uses multiple 630nm low-intensity lasers that stimulate the fat cells to "leak" their lipid content into your normal vascular and lymphatic systems for elimination. When combined with diet, exercise, and fluids, loss of inches can be seen in patients. No freezing--that's coolsculpting.
