I’m so excited to share my experience and results I have had with Zerona. I’ve been having treatments done for around three months and feel like I can give you an honest review!
Being that I am in my late 40’s, keeping in shape is not as easy as it once was for sure! I work out five times a week and eat a clean, gluten and dairy free diet. However, there were still some areas on my body that would not tone up to my liking. So when I saw Austin Body Contouring on Instagram, I was interested in learning more about what they were offering.
In the past, I have tried cool sculpting once, with no results and endermologie. Both of which are for toning and cellulite/fat removal. I love endermologie for many reasons. However, it did not have a lasting effect on me. I had heard of Zerona but didn’t know anything about it until Ed at Austin Body Contouring educated me on the whole process. I’m up for trying pretty much any anti-aging procedure once, so I signed up to start my sessions.
I named this post My Experience With Zerona because this is one treatment where results will vary. There are a lot of lifestyle requirements that go along with the procedure. (Read more about those in the Q & A at the end of this post) Luckily I already lead a healthy lifestyle so no big changes here for me. You’ll need to stick to those lifestyle changes. Then if your body is functioning as needed, you should see changes happening in your body!
For me, Zerona has pretty much changed the shape of my thighs, helped with that back fat (Ewww) and thinned out my lower face and under my chin a bit. It basically took the fluff off my entire body. I am thrilled with the results! I continue to go weekly because, honestly, I don’t have to work out so hard and have more time for other things. Working out 4-5 times a week is still my lifestyle, however, now I can substitute a high cardio day now with some yoga or stretching.
Pre Treatment Prep
The first step is to schedule a consultation. There you can have all of the lifestyle needs explained to you and your questions answered. At Austin Body Contouring you can expect this to be 30 min of fat cell and Zerona education. During your consultation, Ed will go over your options, and you can decide together if Zerona is a good fit for you. Knowing this is important because it is a commitment and you don’t want to waste your time or money on a process that isn’t for you.
You will also have the option to start taking Milk Thistle and Nician before during and after your treatments. More about that below.
For Zerona to be effective your lymphatic system needs to be in top shape! You can read more about that here.
The Treatments are given in private rooms. Leaving your underwear and bra on, you then lay on a massage table that is covered with fresh linen. There are blankets to cover parts that are being treated. The machine is then placed over the body part that you want to treat, 3″ away from your skin. The technician then pushes a button that turns the machine on for 20 min and leaves the room. You are free to have your phone during the entire treatment. I do not experience ANY pain.. at all. I sometimes even fall asleep!
Austin Body Contouring does do it a little differently than other places I’ve researched. Their sessions are 2 hours, once a week. So you get 6- 20 minutes sessions in 2 hours. Surprisingly the machine does not have to be placed on every body part to work. I’ve only had it focused on my belly, back, front thigh, and back thighs. However, I see results on my arms and face. So cool right?!
Is it worth it? Honestly, it works for me. Especially at the price point that Austin Body Contouring offers!

Q & A
How is Zerona different from other fat reducing treatments?
Zerona drains a fat cell where most other procedures kill fat cells. While killing fat cells may sound better, the problem occurs when an individual gains weight after killing the fat cells. Since the fat cells are now gone permanently, should you gain weight later in life, the fat will now have to go to a “new” place in the body since the “dead fat” cells have not been replaced. This can result in a person looking unproportioned or as some would say “lumpy.”
Describe your ideal patient for receiving Zerona treatments?
Individuals looking to gain a healthier lifestyle are ideal candidates for Austin Body Contouring. The ideal patient for Zerona will have a healthy liver, lymphatic system, and Kidneys. These 2 organs and 1 system process the released fat out of the body (after it has been released during the treatments) via bodily functions.
Talk about the supplements to be taken and lifestyle to maintain during treatments.
We ask that our clients consider taking Niacin (B3) for its vasodilating effects. This will help “flush” the fat out via bodily functions.
Milk thistle is recommended to aid the liver in cleansing and detoxing.
We coach our clients in “Eating Well to Live Well” and recommend they follow a “Lean, Clean & Green Plan.” Meaning; Lean proteins and good fats, Clean unprocessed whole foods and plenty of green vegetables. The green veggies are high in fiber, great for the liver and lymphatic system and lower sugar levels than some other vegetables.
How long can the results be maintained?
Once you have completed your treatments, we recommend that you get on the scale daily. If you maintain the same weight and healthy lifestyle, your results will remain indefinitely.
How do you keep your prices so low?
We have multiple machines which affords us the ability to treat more people on a daily basis, thus allowing us to maintain a competitive price.
How many treatments would be most beneficial?
Understanding that everyone is truly unique, 3 treatments is a great place to start. One of 2 things will occur:
- You will achieve enough of a change to “jump-start” your journey,
- Or, you will be able to look at the results you have experienced and determine if the time and investment make sense for your specific situation.
