What do you think about the Zerona?

Hi Dr Irwin. Hello Dr Irwin. I am a client at your center on Madison. Have you heard of Zerona? I'm considering it for some excessive weight I am carrying around my thighs, stomach and waist. These are trouble areas that I haven't been able to tone and I've been trying for 1.5 years (gym 3x/week, eating healthy). I notice you don't offer it at your center and I'm curious why not. I look forward to your feedback if you have any.

The Zerona is based on a sound wave that creates a small hole in the fat cell membrane but the cell is still there.  The fat empties out temporarily and the area looks better for awhile.  The problem is that the hole then seals up again and, since the fat cells are still there, the fat starts to reaccumulate.   It’s a lot of money to pay for something that isn’t very permanent.    Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
