The company claims that the Zerona Laser is the first FDA-approved, non-invasive body contouring procedure that effectively removes undesirable excess fat by utilising patented and clinically proven laser technology that targets unwanted fat under the skin (subcutaneous).

Zerona Laser stimulates a bio-physiological process that emulsifies (liquefies) fat within adipose cells (fat cells), American Medical Aesthetics & Wellness said.

The fat then moves through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane out of the cell and into the interstitial space (extracellular matrix) where it is removed by the lymphatic system.
