Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation & Body Sculpting in the Maritimes
LaZer iZ offers treatment for skin rejuvenation in the Maritimes. We use laser therapy to overcome skin problems such as acne, hyperpigmentations, redness and more. Skin Rejuvenation is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) PhotoFacial treatment that reduces the signs of sun damage. This safe and effective technology uses a broad spectrum of light to target broken capillaries, redness, rosacea, sun spots, age spots and fine wrinkles to produce healthier-looking skin without downtime, pain or invasive procedures.
IPL therapy is a non-invasive and non-ablative (non-wounding) treatment that improves the superficial layer of the skin by pulsing visible therapeutic light over many wavelengths, delivering energy to all layers of the skin.
Skin rejuvenation is administered in a series of 4 to 6 treatments, lasting 20 – 30 minutes, spread out between 10 and 14-day intervals. Clients who have undergone treatment have a high degree of satisfaction with results that produce a gradual decrease in redness, broken capillaries, flushing, irregular pigmentation, brown spots, pore size and fine lines.
At LaZer iZ, we use machines from Zerona® and VelaShape for effective body sculpting. Losing stubborn weight can be a frustrating and difficult process. Our laser therapist offers a better solution through the latest technology.
Zerona® Laser Fat Loss Treatment
Zerona® is the first non-invasive body contouring procedure to effectively remove excess fat without the negative side effects associated with surgical methods.
The Zerona® low-level laser stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell until absorbed by the lymphatic system.
What Do I Have to Do?
Most patients are advised to have six 40-minute treatments over two weeks.
In each session, 20 minutes is spent lying on the back, and 20 minutes on the tummy as the laser focuses on the fat deposits.
How Does It Work?Through clinical studies, it has been demonstrated that the Zerona® low-level laser stimulates the fat cell to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process.
What Happens If I Miss an Appointment?It is not recommended that you miss an appointment. Prior to starting the Zerona® treatment, it is important that you are committed to the recommended lifestyle protocol which includes at least 6 treatments, every other day for 40 minutes and not to exceed 72 hours between treatments. If more than 72 hours intervenes, some of the fat may be taken up by the fat cells again.
How Is It Different from Liposuction?Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire area of fat cells from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia. In contrast, the Zerona® treatment is a 100% non-invasive method that uses a low-level laser applied externally to stimulate the fat cell and emulsify and release fat. There is no use of anesthesia, nor any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles and no downtime.
Is There Any Downtime?Absolutely ZERO downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Are There Any Limitations to What I Can Do If I’m Using Zerona®?No. During the 2 week treatment period you can continue your normal activities. It is strongly recommended that you commit to and follow the treatment protocol: stay hydrated (8-10 glasses of water a day), continue to eat healthily and exercise (walk at least 30 minutes a day) and abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Alcohol and caffeine interfere with the lymphatic process to remove fat and metabolize it which can decrease your results.
Is It Safe?Yes, there is no risk involved in using the Zerona® low-level laser therapy and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction and Lipodissolve and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage, which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. None of these have the proven data showing how fat cell size is reduced like the Zerona®. The Zerona® treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scarring and zero downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects?No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.
Is It Effective?Yes, with the Zerona® treatment and by following the recommended guidelines for success, we saw an average loss of 3.64 inches reported in our clinical trial on the waist, hips, and thighs.
How Long Do Results Last?By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise you can expect long-term results. Zerona® is especially ideal for 2 types of people: those that are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localized pockets of fat or drop body fat % OR those who want to use the Zerona® and the recommended lifestyle protocol to “jump-start” their slimming efforts as motivation for maintaining a healthier and slimmer lifestyle.
How Long Does It Take to Begin Seeing Results?Some can see results after only a few treatment sessions as their clothes fit more loosely. Many actually see the difference after 4-6 sessions. Family and friends often notice the difference, too, within the 2-week Zerona® program.
In Just Eight Weeks I Lost 45 Lbs and Still Counting
“The last week of August I saw your sign for laser weight loss and having had weight problems and type two diabetes problems I decided to give it a try. My blood sugars use to be all over the place but now they are under control and I don’t have the highs and lows that I use to get. It took away my cravings for potato chips, chocolate and other bad eating habits. With the laser program, in just eight weeks I lost 45 lbs and still counting. I now eat healthier and have more energy to do things that I use to love spending my time doing, like bike riding and projects around the house that my wife has been asking me to do for years. I would like to thank Todd and Natalie for all the help and support that they provided through the eight week process without any pressure to do anything extra but concentrate on the task at hand. I am looking forward to starting the second phase and hope the weight continues to slip away like it did in the first eight weeks. Thank you again Todd and Natalie !”
After My 8 Week Program I Lost 32 Lbs
“A change in my life. On April 13, 2016 I started my laser and hypnosis sessions at LaZer iZ Essential on Mountain Road in Moncton for weight loss. Kristine Lavallee (manager) was very professional in explaining to me what the treatment I would be taking and what I could expect. The program consisted of 8 laser and 3 hypnosis sessions. Jason the hypnotist was very encouraging and professional in his time spent with me and I can still hear and think of the suggestions he instilled in me. Joanne who did most of the laser treatment helped me to understand about my weight loss and explained what and where to purchase certain items, she is a very friendly and understanding person who gave me lots of encouragement. I have tried other diet solutions where you have to purchase their food but it was never a lasting experience. I feel with that armed with the knowledge I received from LaZer iZ Essential Staff and the weight loss information in Diane Kress, RD CDE’s book: The Metabolism Miracle with its 3 easy steps to regain control of weight permanently… I will achieve my goal. After my 8 week program I lost 32 lbs on my goal. I feel so good about myself that I reassigned for 8 more weeks of a fun fill adventure.”
