Medical Weight Loss Q & A

Skinsation Medical Spa

What are the health benefits of weight loss?

Many people make the decision to lose weight for simple reasons — one person may simply want to fit into their old jeans, while another person may want natural relief from chronic knee pain.

Whatever your reason for deciding to lose weight, there’s no doubt that your long-term health is the best reason to make the effort.

Carrying too much excess fat is associated with a variety of health problems, including:

  • Greater risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, and certain types of cancer
  • Higher risk of having unhealthy blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Higher risk of developing high blood pressure
  • Increased risk of having a heart attack or stroke
  • Higher risk of developing sleep apnea or breathing problems
  • Greater likelihood of experiencing chronic pain or physical difficulties

Losing just 5-10% of your weight can substantially lower your risk of developing these serious long-term health conditions.

What does the weight loss program include?

Unlike fad diets and short-lived fitness routines, the medical weight loss program at Skinsation Medical Spa takes a comprehensive approach that provides you with the resources, tools, motivation, and support you need to achieve long-term results.*

During your initial health assessment, you’ll complete a physical exam and go over your personal and family medical history, current lifestyle, and any health concerns.

In addition to receiving a personalized, goal-oriented fitness plan designed to maximize your results, you’ll also learn more about your baseline nutritional needs and receive a personalized diet plan.

What type of medical support is available?

At its core, the weight loss program at Skinsation Medical Spa is centered around proven strategies that combine identifying and breaking the habits that prevent weight loss, achieving proper nutrition, and increasing physical activity.

Depending on your individual needs, however, your program may include prescription appetite control medication or medically-monitored injections that boost your energy while promoting weight loss.

Skinsation Medical Spa offers the following additional support:

Phentermine

Phentermine is a short-term treatment intended to assist with the initial phases of weight loss. When combined with diet and exercise, this appetite suppressant helps people with risk factors such as high blood pressure or diabetes to jumpstart their weight loss effort.

Contrave®

Contrave is an FDA-approved weight-loss medication that affects both the hunger center and the reward system of your brain to reduce hunger and help control cravings. Studies show that the medication helps patients lose two to four times more weight than the combination of just diet and exercise.

HCG

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or HCG, is a natural hormone involved in controlling metabolism. When used along with diet and exercise, specially formulated HCG prescription injections help supercharge your body’s ability to burn excess fat without losing muscle mass.

Lipotropic and vitamin B-12 injections

When your liver isn’t functioning optimally, weight loss can be a slow process. Lipotropic and vitamin B-12 injections help your liver process fats at peak efficiency, helping you lose weight faster and making weight loss easier to maintain.
