Non-Surgical Body Slimming and Contouring in Falls Church

The industry of body contouring and slimming without surgery has exploded in the past decade. This is particularly good news for those men and women who eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly but are still unable to rid themselves of stubborn fat areas, primarily in the thighs, hips and waist. The wildly popular, FDA-approved Zerona laser treatment is now available at Shaans Chiropractic, in Falls Church.

Zerona is a cutting-edge treatment that provides a safe and effective non-invasive circumferential reduction of the waist, hips and thighs. It works as the laser creates a pore in fat cells, enabling the fat to leak out and be processed by the body, as waste. The cell, itself, is not destroyed and can still secret beneficial hormones. In fact, the side effects are so minimal, there is no downtime associated with a treatment, although it is recommended that the patient drink between eight and 10 glasses of water and avoid alcohol and caffeine.

The research on Zerona has been very promising. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-site clinical trial, clients treated with the Zerona laser lost an average of 3.72 inches from their waists, hips and thighs without any dietary changes, exercise requirements or supplements. It is recommended that a full treatment, to achieve the best results, consists of six 40-minute treatments every other day for two weeks.

“Zerona is the future of effective body contouring without surgery. We are delighted to offer our clients a non-invasive body-contouring option with impressive, proven results. Clients can continue their daily routines immediately following a Zerona treatment, and there is no downtime, pain or negative side effects associated whatsoever,” notes Dr. Shu Shahverdi, of Shaans Chiropractic.

The results are permanent. Once the fat cells have been targeted, they are completely destroyed, although it is important for the patient to maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid putting on additional fat.

Throughout his career, Shahverdi has rarely seen a procedure this promising for reducing fat—and the fame of Zerona is growing rapidly. Shahverdi has been practicing as a chiropractor and sports medicine physician for many years in the northern Virginia area. Known to his patients and friends as Dr. Shu, he earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas and his postdoctoral specialty in Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose California.
