Carrying around extra weight can put your body at risk for dozens of health conditions and complications. That’s why weight loss is a common ambition for adults. But actually losing weight and keeping it off is hard to do all by yourself.
If you’re one of the millions of people who struggle to meet their weight loss goals, we can help. Keep reading to learn about some of the weight loss treatments we offer at ReVive RX Med Spa in Kansas City, MO.
Why Liposuction Is Not a Weight Loss Treatment
Many people believe that liposuction can be used to achieve significant weight loss without any effort. But this is not true.
Liposuction is not an effective weight loss method, nor is it an alternative to living a healthy lifestyle. Although liposuction can remove stubborn, localized fat deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise, it does not produce significant weight loss.
HCG Diet Plan
Our HCG diet plan takes a unique approach to dieting to promote rapid weight loss. Rather than just restricting calories, we teach you how to make healthy dietary decisions and boost your weight loss efforts using HCG injections.
What to Expect from an HCG Diet Plan
When you begin our HCG diet plan, your diet will be restricted to just 800 calories per day. This restriction is enough to cause significant weight loss, but we also add a secret ingredient — a hormone known as HCG — to kick your weight loss into the next gear.
While on the HCG diet, you’ll only eat whole foods and avoid the following:
- Processed foods
- Foods containing preservatives
- Foods grown with pesticides or herbicides
- Artificial sweeteners
As you complete the diet, your calorie limit will gradually increase. When it does, the healthy eating habits we have established will make it easier to continue down the right path to maintain your weight loss through healthy living.
HCG Injections for Weight Loss
Once you know how to make the right dietary decisions, we may decide to add HCG injections to your treatment plan to help boost your results. HCG is a hormone that is believed to burn fat and increase your metabolism.
Many people are deficient in vitamin B12 without even realizing it. This deficiency can cause chronic fatigue, irritability, trouble focusing, and depression. All of this makes it more difficult to achieve your weight loss goals.
We offer weight-loss injections that are packed full of vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids that can help boost your mood, metabolism, and energy levels.
How We Use B12 Shots for Weight Loss
Our B12 shots are specially formulated with weight loss in mind. Since B12 can improve your energy, these shots make it easier to stick to your exercise regimen.
In addition to a hefty dose of B12, each shot also contains three ingredients to boost your metabolism and burn fat: inositol, methionine, and choline.
Inositol is a sugar that is made naturally by your body. It helps burn fat, lower bad cholesterol, and balance certain chemicals responsible for depression and panic disorders.
Methionine is an amino acid that is essential for your health. It plays a critical role in metabolism, and its inclusion can help boost how quickly your body burns through available energy. Lastly, choline is an essential nutrient that further boosts your metabolism and improves cellular function.
Prescription Diet Medication
If you struggle with cravings or constant feelings of hunger, we may choose to prescribe phentermine.
Phentermine is a prescription appetite suppressant that helps suppress cravings and causes you to feel fuller for a longer amount of time. These appetite suppressant pills can be especially useful while your body is still getting used to eating less frequently.
Should I Take Phentermine?
Phentermine has been approved by the FDA for weight management. You should use it only as prescribed and in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise plan. If we prescribe phentermine, we will monitor you closely to make sure it is working as intended.
Combine Treatments for a Synergistic Effect
Combining treatments can have a synergistic effect that results in more inches dropped from your waist.
You can also combine weight loss treatment with other aesthetic or wellness treatments, including:
- Kybella injections to eliminate a double chin
- Laser lipo
- Skin tightening treatments
- Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
We will discuss all of your goals when you come in for a consultation and determine what treatment — or combination of treatments — is right for you.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Weight Loss Treatment?
In general, anyone who struggles to lose weight could benefit from our weight loss treatments.
Many people who struggle with health conditions such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or osteoarthritis seek out medical weight loss to help manage and relieve the symptoms of their conditions.
However, ongoing health conditions are not a requirement for treatment. Our weight loss treatments are ideal for anyone who wants to improve their overall health and learn how to instill healthy eating habits.
