Weight Loss Management Programs
If you have been trying to lose weight but haven’t been successful on your journey, you may need the help of a medically guided weight loss program to reach your goals and maintain them. Our programs aim to help patients lose weight, but they also aim to help them understand what causes poor lifestyle and eating habits in the first place and guide them in making lifestyle changes to promote optimal health and wellness and achieve their ideal physique.
We use different weight management techniques when designing customized weight management programs for our patients based on their medical history, goals, and preferences. Eating the right foods, getting enough activity, and having the accountability necessary to stay committed to your program can help you lose weight and keep it off long-term.
Additionally, based on your goals and your health history, you may benefit from prescription weight loss medication options or lipotropic injections, which will help speed your progress in a safe, medically guided treatment process.
If you’re interested in beginning a weight loss management program to reach your goals, you may be a good candidate for the hCG diet, one of our prescription weight loss medication options, lipotropic injections, or a combination of all three options. The first step in this process begins with an initial consultation where we will perform an initial analysis of your body’s muscle and water content.
This analysis gives us a better idea of your starting point so we can design your program accordingly. Depending on your treatment plan, we may schedule regular muscle and water analyses to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.
The hCG Diet
The problem with fad diets is that they are not sustainable. Those who follow a fad diet lack the advice of a weight management professional who can oversee that diet to ensure that it’s safe and effective.
The hCG diet is proven to deliver results and is not a fad diet. While it significantly cuts caloric intake, it does so in such a way that you learn how to change your eating habits, and you’ll benefit from a reset metabolism. You will also experience the benefits of cutting out unhealthy food groups from your diet.
hCG is a hormone produced by the bodies of pregnant women, but when isolated and injected during this weight loss protocol, it helps yield some incredible results. The hCG diet targets and eliminates stubborn body fat in some of the most common problem areas, including the buttocks, abdomen, upper thighs, face, and neck.
Patients can lose up to 30 pounds in 40 days on this diet, reset their metabolism and reach their goal weight. The hCG diet requires that patients adhere to a low-calorie diet plan while also receiving regular hCG injections to promote a quick metabolism and help burn fat.
Prescription Weight Loss Medication Options
Prescription Weight Loss Medication Options
Aesthetic Essentials now offers Semaglutide! A new, very effective weight loss program!
A variety of GLP-1 medications, including semaglutide and liraglutide, which you may know under brand names like Wegovy®, Saxenda®, Ozempic®, or Mounjaro®.
Semaglutide, sold under the brand names Wegovy, Mounjaro and Ozempic among others, is an antidiabetic medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and long-term weight management. Semaglutide is a weekly injection proven to result in effective and long term weight loss. Semaglutide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist, meaning that it mimics the action of the human incretin glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), thereby increasing insulin secretion and increasing blood sugar disposal and improving glycemic control. It appears to enhance growth of pancreatic beta cells, which are responsible for insulin production and release. It also inhibits the production of glucagon, which is a hormone that increases glycogenolysis (release of stored carbohydrate from the liver) and gluconeogenesis (synthesis of new glucose). It reduces food intake by lowering appetite and slowing down digestion in the stomach, helping to reduce body fat. Its half-life in the blood is about seven days (165–184 hours).
Commercial semaglutide would be a good option for many people; however, insurance usually does not cover the cost. It typically costs from $800-1300/month. The other advantage of using a compounded product is that the pharmacy can add other ingredients, which may reduce the incidence of side effects such as vitamin b12.
