Weight Loss Medication
At the end of your first visit, we may provide you with weight loss medication. These medications can help to rebalance your appetite-signaling system.* As with all medicine, understanding the proper use, and knowing who is an appropriate candidate for using it, is critical. Weight loss medication is prescribed to people whose excess weight is posing health concerns. We do not provide them in place of nutrition and exercise recommendations; rather, they complement these proven strategies.*
SculpSure is non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that can reduce fat in the abdomen, back, flanks (love handles) and thighs.* Using a heated laser, fat cells are melted down to the point of damage.* Once damaged, these fat cells then leave your body naturally through your lymphatic system.* These treatments can be given to anyone who desires fat reduction and body contouring, but ideal candidates are those who diet and exercise regularly.* The procedure only lasts 25 minutes and there is no downtime whatsoever.*
Our SECA 514 medical body composition analyzer is a critical member of our team. This body composition scanner ensures we know precisely what’s happening as our patients lose weight.* It shows exactly how much lean muscle you have and where it is distributed.* With a waist measurement added in, the machine tells us how much of your body’s fat is visceral fat.* It can also show how hydrated you are, and gives an overall gauge of your nutritional condition and state of health.*
