“Initially a non-believer, I began seeing Dr. Hogan for ZERONA treatments. I had 12 treatments and by the 12th I was able to see a difference in my physique. I was slimmer and smoother. When I came back to Florida after a long summer vacation, I heard about the new Verjú laser system. After only 4 weeks of Verjú I was hooked. I was able to see results faster! I recommend Verjú to all my friends that are looking to slim down.” - Kathy Paton

How Zerona Works


ZERONA is a new body-slimming procedure designed to remove fat and slim the body without invasive surgery. ZERONA unlike other procedures, allows the patient to continue their daily activities without interruptions from surgery, pain or wounds.

ZERONA works by utilizing the Erchonia LipoLASER™ to emulsify adipose tissue which then releases into the interstitial space. The excess fat is passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification. The ZERONA procedure was proven through a double-blind, randomized, multi-site, and placebo controlled study in which patients averaged a loss of 3.5 inches compared to the placebo group that lost only a half an inch.

The stunning series of photographs above demonstrates the low-level-laser’s ability to emulsify adipose tissue. The pictures show the collapse of the rigid adipose cell and the secretion of triglycerides and fatty acids.

This procedure results in the formation of a transitory pore in the bi-lipid membrane of an adipose cell. This pore formation is the direct result of laser stimulation, and the reason why the triglycerides and fatty acids move into interstitial space.

The pore is not damaging to the cell, but simply serves as a means for the fatty contents of the cell to evacuate. The formation of the transitory pore is the product of a series of secondary reactions originating in the mitochondria.

The fatty contents of the cells are then able to evacuate through normal detoxification.
