PerfectMe by Laser, a New Kind of Weight Loss and Body Shaping Spa That Offers a Combination of FDA Approved Technologies to Help You Slim Down, Reduce Cellulite and Lose Inches Much Faster, Without Invasive Surgery, Opens in Burlingame, California

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - "People who are looking for faster and easier ways to lose weight and reshape their body, without undergoing invasive surgery, will be able to see very pleasing results from the combination of weight loss and body contouring technologies that are available at a new kind of weight loss and body shaping spa called PerfectMe by Laser," according to Dr. Shirley Zhao, the director of PerfectMe by Laser, which has recently opened at 1200 Howard Avenue #103 in Burlingame, California.

PerfectMe by Laser uses a combination of three FDA approved weight loss and body contouring technologies to help achieve the best results for each person.

These non-invasive, comfortable, spa-like treatments, along with the FDA approved technologies, helps PerfectMe by Laser target areas of the body that are generally very hard to reduce with just diet and exercise.

"The technology for fat reduction has come a long way," according to Dr. Zhao. "Years ago, it was only traditional liposuction under general anesthesia, with many possible life threatening risk factors, and it was also only for those who were in the obese category. In recent years, minimally invasive liposuction has given many people a less traumatic alternative. Yet, you would still be paying at least $12,000 or more to take out small pockets of fat, and you would still have to face the needle, the local anesthesia, the cold environment of a doctor's office, and much more. In general, trimming fat by surgical liposuction is not an inviting concept and definitely not for everyone," according to Dr. Zhao, "especially when you don't have that kind of cash in your bank account."

The technologies that PerfectMe by Laser uses will help people lose weight, slim down, reduce cellulite and start trimming significant inches from problem areas like their thighs, abdomen, arms, back, waistline, buttocks and bra-line.

"All of this will is done in a very comfortable, spa-like setting, with no pain, no needles, no blood and no downtime," according to Dr. Zhao. "People will be able to resume their regular activities immediately after their treatments. Plus, it will be done at a fraction of the cost that people would expect to pay if they had the procedures done in a physician's office."

The procedures and technologies that PerfectMe by Laser uses are Zerona®, VelaShape II™ and VASER®Shape.

Information about each of these specific procedures can be found on the PerfectMe by Laser website at

Here is a summary of these technologies:

1) Zerona® is a non-invasive body contouring procedure to effectively remove excess fat without the negative side effects associated with surgical methods. You lie on a comfortable table for twenty minutes on each side while the lasers are applied to the target areas.

Zerona® utilizes cold laser technology which has been shown to emulsify fat and allow it to move to interstitial space. The excess fat is then passed through the body during its normal course of detoxification.

There is no need to wear compression garments nor bandages with Zerona® and since there is no pain, there is no need for anesthesia. There is no downtime, so patients can resume their normal activities immediately.

Zerona® can help you lose inches from your waist, hips and thighs, and Zerona® can also be used in other parts of the body targeting upper arms, bra-line fat, back fat and buttocks. The Zerona® body mass reduction and body sculpting removes fat from areas of the body that are hard to reduce with just a regular diet and exercise. The Zerona® technology was approved by the FDA in August 2010.

2) Another machine that PerfectMe by Laser uses is the VelaShape II™. This machine uses technology that received FDA approval for cellulite reduction in 2007.

VelaShape II™ features the combination of Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage to produce

  • Gradual smoothing of the skin's surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
  • Circumferential Reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area. The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime.

VelaShape II™ enables you to comfortably and safely achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in as few as four treatment sessions, making you look and feel more youthful.

VelaShape II™ can be used for circumferential reduction on the thighs and cellulite treatment on thighs, buttocks, love handles and abdomen.

3) A third machine that PerfectMe by Laser uses is called the VASER®Shape. VASER®Shape is a non-invasive ultrasound and massage therapy treatment that smoothes, firms and shapes the body. This machine uses ultrasonic technology that was approved for fat reduction by the FDA in October 2010.

VASER®Shape temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite, and increases local blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The treatment uses ultrasound waves to warm the targeted problem area and treat the underlying fatty tissue. It then uses zonal lymphatic massage to drain away excess toxins and lipids for removal from the body.

VASER®Shape is a comfortable massage-like treatment that only requires three to five sessions for significant results. Following the procedure, you can resume normal activity without pain or downtime. Recent clinical studies have shown VASER®Shape to produce noticeable changes in just one clinical session.

People may choose to undergo treatments with one, two or all three of these technologies at PerfectMe by Laser to achieve their body shaping goals. "When combined, the three kinds of treatments would include a combination of machinery that makes use of cold lasers, infrared devices, radiofrequency waves, as well as ultrasound. These technologies feature some of the most aggressive techniques for weight loss and cellulite reduction available on the market today, second only to that of invasive liposuction procedures. Plus, none of these treatments require any numbing. Patients will be able to go through these sessions comfortably, with no needles, no blood and no pain, and they will be able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatments are finished. With the combination of these technologies, very pleasing weight loss and body shaping results can now be achieved in a very attractive time frame, usually within two weeks to one month," according to Dr. Zhao.

Each treatment requires a minimum of four to six one hour sessions over a period of two weeks to a month, depending on each machine. Clients would be able to buy a package of several treatment sessions and would come in one to three times per week for two to four weeks to achieve fat reduction in a very short time frame compared to the results you might get from a regimen of just diet and exercise.

Here are some additional benefits and advantages of losing fat the easy way at PerfectMe by Laser:

  • People will be able to get these weight loss and body contouring treatments with these three FDA approved technologies all available under one roof at PerfectMe by Laser.
  • PerfectMe by Laser focuses purely on non-invasive fat and cellulite reduction.
  • Instead of diversifying resources for other non-weight loss treatments or skin care, like other medical spas are doing, PerfectMe by Laser focuses solely on body slimming.
  • People will be able to relax and enjoy "massage-like" treatments with an added benefit of weight loss, inch loss and cellulite reduction at PerfectMe by Laser.

"The price of each session is comparable to the price of a body wrap, or a facial treatment, or a massage session, and the cost will be only a fraction of what you would be paying in a doctor's office. Plus, you don't have to run on the treadmill for 45 minutes like a body wrap procedure. Each session at PerfectMe by Laser is comparable to a hot stone massage or just lying down for a short nap. You can also enjoy complimentary aroma and paraffin bath therapies for your hands while you sleep your way to beauty," according to Dr. Zhao. Aromatherapy and paraffin bath therapy will be available during treatments with Zerona®. Aromatherapy will also be offered with VelaShape II™ and VASER®Shape treatments. PerfectMe by Laser also offers a variety of different treatment packages, membership offers and will also be featuring other special offers. More complete information about their pricing and services is available on their website at and by phone at 650-375-8884.

"The weight loss and size loss you could achieve at PerfectMe by Laser could be very significant! You might be able to go down a few pant sizes in a relatively short time frame," according to Dr. Zhao.

"The mission at PerfectMe by Laser is to help mold a more perfect you through a combination of the latest scientifically proven technologies, service and care. At PerfectMe by Laser, the emphasis is on results, specifically, results in weight loss, inch loss, and cellulite reduction, without sacrificing comfort," according to Dr. Zhao.

Many other medical spas may only utilize one of these techniques. PerfectMe by Laser can provide a combination of all these technologies to help achieve much better results in a much shorter time frame, without invasive surgery. All of these technologies work equally well on men.

*Additionally, Dr. Zhao continues, "At PerfectMe by Laser, we want you to enjoy each and every one of your visits here, just like a regular spa visit, and we promise to deliver spa-like treatments that you will look forward to again and again."

In addition to the regular treatment packages that PerfectMe by Laser offers, they will also be offering special packages including a Pre-Wedding Promotional Offer, a Body After Baby Promotional Offer, and a Get the Bikini Body You've Always Wanted offer during the summer months.

"There are also several safety features that PerfectMe by Laser clients will enjoy," according to Dr. Zhao.

*All the technologies and equipment used by PerfectMe by Laser are FDA approved and very safe.

*Since all the procedures are strictly non-invasive, there will be no contact nor exposure to blood nor other body fluids.

Although these technologies are safe and effective for the general public, PerfectMe by Laser recommends that you talk with your physician before committing to any treatments if you are pregnant or planning to be pregnant, if you are breast feeding, if you have a pacemaker, Diabetes or thyroid problems. Also, people who are on a wide range of medications, or have any other types of metabolic problems, should consult their physicians prior to any treatments, because results may be compromised if a person has any systemic contraindications to detoxifying body wastes.

"Keeping the weight off is also part of the program at PerfectMe by Laser. PerfectMe by Laser also offers a special 'Maintenance Program,'" according to Dr. Zhao. "Weight control is a life long journey that a majority of us continuously battle. As with all non-invasive weight loss programs and treatments, there is no permanent cure to weight gain and obesity. Long term weight loss success is achieved only with a combination of a healthy diet, abundant water intake, exercise, and rest," according to Dr. Zhao, "so PerfectMe by Laser also offers the convenience of membership programs that can help enhance the results of weight control in addition to a balanced diet and daily exercise. As members, clients will be able to purchase maintenance plans to continue to receive cutting edge non-invasive fat and cellulite reduction treatments at membership plan prices."

In addition to their location at 1200 Howard Ave. #103 in Burlingame, PerfectMe by Laser also plans to open several more Bay Area locations in the near future. PerfectMe by Laser in Burlingame is open every day from 10am-8:00pm.
