How does ZERONA® Work?
• Laser emulsifies adipose tissue.
• Safe collapse of the rigid adipose cell and the secretion of
triglycerides and fatty acid from the cell.

How does ZERONA® Work?
How Triglycerides and Fatty Acids Escape
• Images show formation of a transitory pore forming in the bi-lipid
membrane of an adipose cell.
• Pore is direct result of safe, low-level laser stimulation
• Triglycerides and fatty acids able to move into the interstitial space.
• Pore allows the fatty content to safely evacuate the cell.

 make sure you use the same background – preferably a blue backdrop
 have adequate and consistent lighting
 place tape on the ground where the patient and the photographer
stand, to ensure the distance from the camera does not change
 have the patient stand with their feet shoulder width apart
 suggest the patient wear the same undergarments or swimsuit at both
before and after pictures
 take 3 views:
1. Front – with arms to the sides
2. Side – with arms straight ahead
3. Back – with arms to the sides
Take pictures before the first treatment and after the last. Remember
to have a Media Release form signed

Proper Placement of the Diode
 Do you know exact placement of the diodes for each treatment area?
 no more than 12 inches from treatment area
 use the center diode as placement guide, slightly below the navel
 check for areas of greatest accumulation of fat, adjust laser arms over
the target treatment areas
 adjacent laser linear beams must overlap
 laser heads must be parallel to skin
