Zerona is safe for all skin types

Zerona treatments are safe on any patient whether they have darker skin either naturally or from a tan.  Our patients have been very happy with the treatments and I wish you well.

The Zerona laser is a no touch, cool laser so it is safe for all skin types. No pain or downtime. A good procedure if you can maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Zerona Equally Ineffective on All Skin Types

Hi Knox,

Zerona users will take money from light or dark skinned clients.  It is equally ineffective on any skin type.  The 635nm laser cannot penetrate through skin to effect fat cells as claimed.  Good luck and be well.
