Dee Yadyasar, Master Aesthetician and Medspa visionary announced today that Azia Medical Spa has launched a Body Sculpting program featuring such revolutionary treatments as ZERONA™ Body Sculpting Laser, Slim™ Lipo Laser Lipolysis and Medically Supervised Weight Loss.

“There is not a one-size, fits all solution for weight loss and contouring the body,” says Dr. Jerry Hankins, Medical Director of Azia Medical Spa. “At Azia, we chose the best that science and technology has to offer by providing three solutions for slimming down that can be used individually, or in combination, depending on each individual’s needs and desired results. We personalize each body sculpting treatment plan at Azia so that optimum results can be achieved.”

Slim™ Lipo is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure similar, but more technologically advanced and smarter than the popular Smartlipo™ that permanently removes fat and is performed using only local anesthetic, while the patient is awake (no general anesthesia is required). During the procedure a narrow cannula (tube) containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The laser energy delivered through the fiber liquefies the fat cells. Simultaneously, dermal tissue around the area is heated, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue. Unlike traditional liposuction, Slim™ Lipo causes much less trauma to the tissue resulting in a much quicker recovery time.    Typically patients are back to work within a couple of days and able to resume exercise after just two weeks.

“Popular areas we treat are abs, hips, thighs, flanks,arms, bra-fat, turkey-neck and male breasts,” says Dee Yadyasar. “You have a finite amount of fat cells. With Slim™ Lipo the fat cells that are removed are gone permanently.”

The ZERONA™ Erchonia LipoLaser is a safe and effective laser that is totally non-surgical, allowing patients to continue their daily activities without interruption. This painless procedure involves an average of 6 treatments over the course of two weeks. Patients lie on a table for 40 minutes (20 minutes front and 20 minutes back), while the low-level laser affects fat cells, causing stored fat to be released from the body during its normal course of detoxification. The result: patients report losing inches from their waists, hips and thighs at an average of 3 to 9 inches with six sessions.

Under the medical direction of Dr. Jerry Hankins, Azia’s Medically Supervised Weight Loss program is a safe, simple and effective program that takes hunger and guess work away. After an in-depth evaluation to discuss your overall health and your experience with diets and weight loss programs, a personalized program is developed to help you lose weight, and most importantly, keep it off.

“I am excited to be able to offer such a comprehensive Body Sculpting program to our patients,” says Dee Yadyasar. “We have treatments and treatment combinations to address a wide variety of body types and desired results, from just a few inches in problem areas, to a more comprehensive lifestyle change.”

Azia Medical Spa will be offering a free Summer Slim Down seminar on Tuesday, April 20 at 6:00 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy refreshments, treatment giveaways, exclusive special offers, and information about Azia Medical Spa’s Body Sculpting Program and other cosmetic treatments. Seating is limited. To reserve a space RSVP by calling 205-980-7772 or visit to learn more.
