HOW DOES FX 635 WORK?
The FX 635 uses low-level laser technology and patented laser diode arms to precisely target lower back pain centers. It reduces inflammation while promoting bio-stimulation at a cellular level in the musculoskeletal point of the pain’s origination. Unlike other lasers that are too strong and unreliable — and produce unwanted heat — the FX 635 is fully compliant with ISO 13485 Medical Device Quality and IEC 60825-1 Laser Safety.
Zerona-Z6 Laser for Body Sculpting
Zerona is the first non-invasive fat loss laser to effectively target excess fat without the negative side effects associated with surgical methods.* Zerona utilizes the same cold laser technology developed by Erchonia, which has been shown to emulsify fat and allow it to move to the interstitial space.
Although this technology was originally utilized to help assist tumescent liposuction procedures, it was found that the cold laser treatment alone helped clients to reduce inches from their waist, hips, thighs, arms, chest, knees, ankles and back or bra fat thus creating overall body slimming effect.*
HOW ZERONA WORKS
The Zerona is placed over your waist, hips and thighs (and possibly additional areas) on the front side of your body for 20 minutes. Then over the same areas on the back side of your body, producing a global effect on your fabulous fat cell.
The Zerona Z6 Fat emulsifying laser brings the fat cell to threshold at 624nm producing the pore of the fat cell that to open for 50-72 hours. This allow the fat cell to drain contents into lymphatic system ( your garbage disposal). Next the contents is empty GI and exiting the body; thus giving our fat cells a home with a more desirable size, appearance and function ! EXCITING!
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR ZERONA EXPERIENCE AT NORTHERN HOPE
We say "fabulous fat cells" because our fat cells are actually little organelles that are 1 of the 3 components used for making new cells in the body - water, protein, and cholesterol. It is up to you to fill and maintain your (cholesterol-fat) cell with good substances for the performance of a healthy functioning body and appearance.
With this premise in mind, your initial Zerona consultation will include a meeting with Dr. Sara Graber, Chiropractic Neurologist-Nutritionist and Certified Zerona specialist. As well as Mrs. Cassandra Holtz, licensed therapeutic Massage Therapist and Zerona Specialist. Cassandra will aid you in best fit practices for ultimate outcome! This appointment will last 30-45 minutes, depending on your goals.
An in-depth intake evaluation is established to determine if your lymphatic system is up to par for the fat cell contents to drain without risk of re-absorbing some of them back into body.
For example: an individual suffering from dysbosis of the gut, gallbladder removal, Lyme disease, thyroid dysfunction, etc. This person will not fare as well as those who are not experiencing body inflammation producing a sluggish or exceptional slow lymphatic response. This doesn’t mean Zerona is not a good fit for these clients. It does, however, identify that they may require more sessions for desired goals or choose to do a metabolic consult with Dr. Sara to pair with their Zerona weight loss goals to establish long lasting health benefits.
That being stated, we require a 20-minute lymphatic drainage massage immediately following your 40-minute Zerona treatment. This will be followed by 10-minutes of vibration plate therapy to ensure the best outcome for your fabulous fat cell pore to start draining at a rapid rate.
Our team at Northern Hope strives for excellence in our individualized treatment plans. Our laser technology is no exception!
