MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
With over one third of American adults suffering from obesity, many of us would love to lose a few pounds (or more) of excess body fat. Unfortunately, there is no magic pill to instantly shed that weight. However, medical research has made significant strides in the last few years, and the path to a healthier, more confident you is closer than ever.
Medical weight loss entails a medical professional administered program to realize mutually agreed upon goals. Each individual receives a consultation with one of our experienced medical professionals to determine health, weight and wellness targets. From that consultation, a plan is developed and agreed upon. This plan may consist of any, or a combination of treatments.
Although no magic weight loss solution exists to simply melt away fat, Mesotherapy injections just might be the closest thing we have. Mesotherapy specifically targets adipocytes (fat cells) in subcutaneous fat, the most widely distributed tissue layer in the body. Some of the most common issue areas with subcutaneous fat include the chin/jowls, eye pads, arms/armpit flank, the abdomen, the bra line, love handles, and hips.
We administer tiny injections into the mesodermal layer of tissue under the skin, where the injected compounds then catalyze the breakdown and excretion of fat cells. Phosphatidylcholine and Sodium Deoxycholate stimulate the production of lipase, an enzyme that deconstructs body fat into free fatty acids that are easily and rapidly passed through the body in urine or feces. Injecting directly into the mesoderm allows us to more deliberately target specific fat pockets and more effectively shed unsightly fat and cellulite. For those who have tried a variety of diet & exercise plans but still cannot seem to materialize results, the Mesotherapy alternative weight loss treatment could be just what the doctor ordered.
hCG Hormone Therapy
For those trying and struggling to lose weight, the words “diet and exercise” are nails on a chalkboard. If you have had enough of “trying” and are ready to start succeeding, our hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) medical weight loss program could be just what you need to get the results you want. hCG aids in the burning of fat when administered in conjunction with a low calorie diet to optimize the body’s metabolism and maximize weight loss. Administering hCG helps the body retain lean muscle, while drawing directly from excess fat stores in your cells to burn energy without taking energy from other important cell functions. Thus, you retain the useful essential fat your body requires to function.
hCG injections are accompanied by a strict diet of 500-800 calories per day, which is by far the most challenging aspect of the treatment. However, patients can expect to lose weight on a daily basis over the course of the 4-8 weeks if adhering to the program. In the end, your metabolism should remain normalized at a healthy level indefinitely.
We consult with each patient to determine the best strategy to realize their weight loss goals. Achieving weight loss begins with shifting one’s lifestyle. Due to individual differences in body chemistry, simply altering lifestyle may not be enough, in which case our health professionals may prescribe Phentermine weight loss pills to supplement lifestyle changes and accelerate your path to a slimmer, better you.
We recommend this treatment only for those who have a substantially higher body mass index (BMI) than the standard value given their age and height. As with all weight-loss treatments, patients must combine their use of Phentermine with serious commitment to an active lifestyle with a healthy diet.
Your medical professional may also determine that you need supplemental drugs to assist in your weight loss regimen. These will be prescribed as part of the agreed upon regimen to reach your weight loss targets.
