Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Which benefits can I expect when undergoing medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss offers you the following advantages:

  • More energy
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Reduced chronic disease risks
  • Easier disease management
  • Reduced need for medications
  • Longer life expectancy
  • Self-confidence
  • Improved quality of life

The skilled Artem Med Spa specialists supervise medical weight loss to ensure it’s safe, effective, and tailored to your unique needs and food preferences.

Which medical weight loss plan is right for me?

Medical weight loss programs at Artem Med Spa begin with an initial consultation. Your weight loss provider weighs you, evaluates your body mass index (BMI), and assesses your blood pressure and other vital signs.

They also discuss your usual food intake, exercise habits, and sleep habits; medical history; lifestyle habits; medications; and more to get to know you.

Your provider completes a physical exam and may order blood tests or additional diagnostic tests to screen for high cholesterol, nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, or other medical issues.

What does medical weight loss entail?

Your personalized medical weight loss program may include one or more of the following components:

  • Custom meal plans
  • Personalized exercise programs
  • Semaglutide weight loss medications
  • Vitamin B12 shots
  • Dietary supplements
  • Hormone therapy
  • Chronic disease management
  • Stress management
  • Behavioral therapy

Semaglutide is a weight loss medicine that combats hunger and keeps your metabolism going strong. It’s FDA-approved to treat people with a BMI of 30 or more or a BMI of 27 with diabetes or other weight-related health conditions. You can lose up to 15% of your body weight during the first 17 months of use. 

Vitamin B12 shots aid in weight loss by increasing vitamin B12 absorption, maintaining a strong metabolism, and reducing your risk of deficiencies. 

Your Artem Med Spa team follows up periodically during your weight loss journey to ensure you’re successful. Call the office any time with questions or if you need extra support during your weight loss program.
