Can Zerona Target the Thighs?

Liposuction Targets specific areas for fat reduction (Zerona does not)

A study done shows that Zerona works for the hips, thighs and abdomen even though the purpose is not to target any one area. Rather it works as a general fat reduction process. Unfortunately, it has not been efficacious for the limited number of patients we treated and so we returned our machine. You may want to save your money and use it for liposuction which can target any area of excess fat and is predictable.

Can Zerona Target the Thighs...Only if Your Wallet is There

Hi Jennif,

Sorry to be the "voice of reason", but the main area that Zerona targets is your pocketbook.  The 635 nm laser light (popular with reading bar codes) is unable to penetrate through skin to cause the "holes in the fat cells that results in the loss of inches" as erroneously claimed.  The "results of inches lost" is related to the dietary supplement Curva, diet, and exercise.  See web reference below.  Good luck and be well.

After just six 40 minute treatments you will see inches melt away. And best of all there is no recovery or downtime so you can resume all your normal activities immediately after each treatment.
