New ZERONA Device is Placed in Des Plaines, IL

Consumer satisfaction fuel ZERONA's continued placement growth.


DALLAS, Texas – 12/20/2011 - Santa Barbara Medical Innovations (SBMI) announced today that another ZERONA laser device is in place at M. Vincent Makhlouf's office, a leading provider, located at 9301 Gold Rd., Des Plaines, IL 60016.

Over the last year, SBMI has seen a significant increase in ZERONA distribution and patient interest since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted market clearance for the non-invasive body contouring device. Over 870 ZERONA devices are in medical professional practices throughout North America who have treated in excess of 60000 patients.

"We are extremely pleased with the continued interest of the ZERONA body contouring laser," said Michael Browning, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development of SBMI. "This strengthens ZERONA’s value in helping women and men transform their bodies in two weeks, with zero surgery, pain, bruising or recovery time."
ZERONA was granted market clearance by the FDA last year for the safe and effective circumferential reduction of the hips, waist and thighs. ZERONA uniquely targets fat cells and promotes the safe release of stored fats, a therapeutic approach that significantly differs from other technologies that intentionally destroy the known organ tissue by heating or freezing the cells.
