This post isn’t hair loss related, but it goes hand-in-hand with wanting to look your best.
My hair transplant patient, plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Perlman, got very excited when he explored a new, non-surgical way to treat fat build-up in the neck, trunk, stomach, and thighs. He started to offer this service and continues to be very high on the results he has now seen. So many men (and women) have just enough fat build-up to make them self-conscious and rather than undergo a surgical procedure like liposuction, this option may be attractive to some of you. Dr. Perlman offered our readers a 10% discount through the end of this year for anyone wanting to undergo this non-surgical fat reduction procedure.
I asked Dr. Perlman to explain how the technology works. He writes:
In the last year the Zerona diode laser has been developed for body sculpting and removal of unsightly fat collections. It works by applying a low power laser energy painlessly without any surgery or probes and â€œmeltsâ€ the fat layer beneath the skin of the neck, trunk, stomach or thighs. During the course of multiple (usually six) painless Zerona laser applications, electron microscopy reveals the development of pores in the walls of the fat cells resulting in them emptying their fat into the interstitial fluid space. This fat is eliminated through the lymphatic system with patients noting a loss of 3â€- 4â€ or more over a several week period of time. A few have even lost up to a combined 10â€ with this procedure and have been given a â€œjump-startâ€ toward looking and feeling better and maintaining it by better diet and exercise habits.
