.

Zerona not lipo: Zerona treatments are not "liposuction" and should not be called liposuction [ which is the actual removal of fat through suction cannulas]. Zerona is not really a laser.{it is a single wavelength but it not amplified} it is low energy light therapy that is directed on the skin that can give minimal fat reduction.

Typically nonphysicians have little more than a weekend course in procedures such as injectables. ...Read more
