At Zerona of Rhode Island, Doctor of Chiropractic Jeffrey Newman works to smooth silhouettes noninvasively with cold-laser Zerona treatments, recently featured on The Doctors. During 40-minute sessions, which are generally spaced within 72 hours of one another, low-light lasers glide over patients' waists, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue.

Healthy eating habits and avoidance of caffeine, alcohol, and falling pianos help to maximize results. See the office's FAQ section for more details.

They can also take advantage of the center's chiropractic treatments, medical and cosmetic acupuncture, monthly memberships, and nutrition services.
