Joseph Togba, M.D. Introduces New And Only Non-Invasive Body Slimming, Low-Level Laser Treatment With Proven Results

ZERONA Offers Safe Alternative for Painless Reduction of Inches and Body Fat in the BAY AREA

Online PR News – 28-January-2010 – – Local board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph Togba announces the arrival of the ZERONA, the only non-invasive, body slimming, low-level laser treatment, to his practice, making him one of the first physicians to offer the ZERONA™ in the Eastbay. During clinical trials, the ZERONA has been scientifically proven to result in an average of 3.6 inches lost from patients’ waist, hips and thighs. Unlike invasive weight loss surgery, ZERONA® is a revolutionary method that is applied externally without the dangers associated with surgery or other non-invasive devices which rely on heating the tissue. The new technology has been proven to reduce inches from target areas such as the tummy, back, hips, thighs, buttocks, chin, neck and arms; contour and reshape the body; and tighten and tone loose skin.
The introduction of ZERONA to Dr. Togba’s practice will provide those seeking a safe alternative to surgery with a body contouring program that causes no bruising, scarring and discomfort. The simple procedure consists of six 40-minute treatments over a two-week period.
Dr. Togba says, “Our patients have been pleased with the results from ZERONA® treatments and because there are no needles, no incisions and no recovery time involved, they can continue with their daily activities immediately after each treatment. ZERONA® is an excellent option for patients who do not want to experience the downtime, health risks or pain associated with more invasive procedures for body countouring.”
ZERONA® uses a patented and clinically proven low-level laser technology developed by Erchonia, the global leader in low-level laser healthcare applications. The results were proven effective through a double-blind, randomized, multi-site, and placebo-controlled study.
Clinical studies demonstrated that the ZERONA® low-level laser targets adipose tissue (fat storing cells) and stimulates the fat cell to liquefy the fat within the cell. A small pore is then naturally created in the protective membrane of the fat cell enabling the fatty matter to seep out of the cell until absorbed by the lymphatic system. The excess fat is then passed out of the body during its normal course of detoxification which results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller and inches are reduced.
“ZERONA® is the leading technology for body contouring without surgery,” says Steve Shanks, Vice President at Erchonia, the creator and manufacturer of the device. “We are pleased to bring such a superior product to highly-respected doctors such as Dr. Togba who can now offer ZERONA® as a perfect solution for those who want to jump start or maintain a healthier and slimmer lifestyle in the Eastbay.”
