Medical Weight Loss Program
Slim n Skin’s Medical Weight Loss Program manages excessive hunger that leads to overeating and weight gain. Our program is designed to jump-start weight loss through supervision.
We utilize telemedicine in our practice to provide you weight loss consultations with our healthcare provider. Our purpose is to help you reach your weight loss and health goals in a cost-efficient, safe and effective manner.
Are you a candidate for Medical Weight Loss?
To qualify for Medical Weight Loss Program, you must meet one or more of the following criteria:
- BMI of 30 or above
- Patients who have had bariatric surgery (must wait a minimum of 9 months)
- Bariatric Gastric Balloon patient
How does the program work?
You meet with our healthcare provider at one of our studios to discuss your weight loss and health goals. Depending on your medical history, you might require lab tests (blood and/or urine) to ensure that you can safely take the prescribed medication. Please note that candidates currently pregnant or nursing cannot be in the program, and pregnancy test may be required periodically at the provider’s discretion.
If you meet the requirements of the program, our provider will perform a consult and determine which medication works best for you. Medication is for a 30-day supply. Follow up appointments are every 30-days and a refill requires an office visit. During your follow up visits, your progress will be recorded and any concerns you might have will be reviewed so that we can adjust your program if as needed. Medication is sent to your pharmacy of choice and the consultation price does not include medication.
You may also choose to consult our Nutrition and Diet Expert for a customized diet plan.
