With many women not wanting to get a “surgery” proper done and with the development of so many cool technologies, there are now ways in which the body fat can be gotten rid of without the knife and surgery. One of the ways is called Cool-Sculpting which uses extremely low temperatures to freeze fat. Zerona technique uses Laser to shrink fat cells and break them down.

Cool-Sculpting 

Cool-Sculpting

Procedure – The patient sits in a chair during the procedure and the physician applies a cooling suction device in the parts where you want to lose fat. The body parts become numb from the freezing temperature. The process destroys the fat cells by freezing them.

Costs Involved– Each sitting lasts an hour and costs $700. Depending on the region where you want to lose the fat and the extent of fat you want to lose, the number of sittings vary. Your tummy would need 2 sittings for a 20% reduction in fat, thighs would need four and so on.


Results – It is not as effective as liposuction and not meant to be also. It is meant for discreet bulges that have fat that is resistant to exercise. So if you eat healthy, exercise well and have a moderate amount of fat, then this procedure works well for you.

Zerona

Results– Zerona has been successful in removing 1 to 1.5 inches of fat from thighs, hips and stomach region.
