UPDATE: I've concluded that this procedure does not work—my feeling is that any weight loss that people experience comes from the supplement, Curva (NOT the Zerona sessions themselves). To read the full series of posts on my experience, see here: a Q&A with Dr. Mulholland, the pre-treatment measurements and photos, my first two sessions, the mid-treatment measurements, post-treatment measurements and then final measurements. I then started a second round of (six) treatments, but once again did not experience any changes. I believe that LipoSonix sounds more promising.
Have you heard of Zerona? It's a new laser treatment that's been generating a LOT of buzz lately because it apparently melts away inches of fat—without any pain or invasiveness. Like a laser liposuction, if you will.
When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. But you cannot argue with results. Inches are inches, and the Zerona removes inches, more than four inches on the "test" case we did for The Doctors. I have to say, I didn't believe it at first either.
The Zerona laser simply shines a laser light upon the areas where the fat is to be reduced. The laser biochemically creates a "hole" in the cell wall of the lipocyte (fat cell), and the cell contents are spilled out into the space between the cells, where lymph resides. And just like with lymph, it is absorbed, and the waste is excreted from the body. Basically, the Zerona has been shown to reduce inches of fat by sucking the fat cells dry.
We will have to wait and see what the long term results are, but for now, the evidence shows that we have a new way to reduce figure flaws without surgery.

And that's what convinced me to give it a test drive at Dr. Stephen Mulholland's SpaMedica clinic in Toronto. Hopefully I'll look like the photo above when I'm done.
There are going to be six treatments across the next two weeks, so I'm going to share with you the step-by-step in a series of posts.
What I won't be sharing, however, are any before and after pics! I hear from Janine from Beautygeeks that I'm going to be asked to slip into a paper thong today for some confidence-killing photos. Yikes!
Anyway, stay tuned for more—I'll be giving you all the deets plus a Q&A I did with Dr. Mulholland. And feel free to ask anything else you want to know along the way. I'll make sure your questions get answered too.
Disclaimer: Dr. Mulholland has very generously allowed me to do the series of treatments free of charge for this review. My thighs thank him.
