Hormone Replacement and Weight Loss

Hormones and Weight Loss

Living your best life begins by feeling your best

Hormone Replacement

Hormone imbalance occurs when there is too much or too little of a much needed hormone in the body. Because hormones need to be kept within a certain range to perform specific functions, hormone imbalance can be associated with a variety of symptoms, functional changes in the body, and reduced quality of daily life. Signs of hormone imbalance may include weight gain, muscle weakness or loss, decreased sex drive, hair loss, anxiety, depression, irritability, mood swings, insomnia and fatigue. Hormone replacement therapy aims to correct these imbalances so you can get back to feeling your very best!

BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can be very helpful for people who suffer from a hormonal imbalance or who might not produce enough hormones naturally. BHRT is named that way because it is formulated to be as close as you can get to our body’s natural hormones. These hormones are chemically identical to the ones your body makes, so the body can absorb them easily and use them in the same way as naturally-produced hormones.

Unlike hormone shots, supplements or creams, BHRT comes in the form of very small pellets that are placed under the skin with a special tool. The pellets slowly dissolve and release hormones over about a 90-day period. Once your hormones reach therapeutic levels (for your age and gender), you can enjoy the benefits of increased lean muscle mass and stamina, increased sexual functioning, reduced night sweats, fewer mood swings, more restful sleep, and more energy!

What to Expect

BHRT begins with a consultation and comprehensive lab work to determine your current symptoms and hormone levels. This gives us a better picture of your overall health and wellness for more accurate hormone dosing. The actual procedure is fairly quick and minimally painful. A specially designed scalpel makes a small incision and the pellets are inserted under the skin with the Pellecome® patented tool. Afterwards, the incision is closed with sterile adhesive bandages. Bruising does sometimes occur and the incision may leave a tiny scar. Follow-up labs will be ordered to ensure that your hormone levels are therapeutic. Repeat insertion every 90 days to maintain optimal hormone levels.

Medically Managed Weight Loss

Losing weight isn’t easy, but it can be with our medically managed weight loss programs! Let’s be honest, most of us would like to shed a few pounds. Even with a proper diet and regular exercise there are uncontrollable factors like genetics, hormones, medical conditions, and lack of support that keep us from reaching our ideal weight. Our weight loss programs are supervised by licensed healthcare professionals and designed for individuals with weight-related issues. Whether you want to lose just a few pounds or drop several dress sizes, let us help you achieve your weight-loss goals in a safe and effective manner.

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide

Often called “skinny shots” Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are game changers for weight loss! Taken once a week, these peptides work by reducing the desire to eat, controlling cravings, increasing fullness from smaller food portions, and boosting metabolism. Multiple studies have been conducted since discovering these weight loss properties with users losing an average of 5-20% of their body weight after 40 weeks. Semaglutide and Tirzepatide can change the way you think about food: eat to live, not live to eat.

*Medication dosing and pricing titrates on a monthly basis. Initial consultation with labs ($299), consultation without labs or with a written lab order ($49).

How it Works

Our programs start with an initial consultation and lab work. (required). The purpose of the labs is to ensure that you have no underlying health conditions that may affect your safety while on the program. Not everyone will be a candidate for Semaglutide or Tirzepatide injections.

If you are a candidate, we will order your medication and teach you how to perform your first injection. After this, you will be sent home with pre-filled syringes of the medication to take and give to yourself weekly. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, constipation, heart burn, and lack of energy. Monthly visits are required for medication refills and to promote long-term success.

Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist medication used successfully in rehab and drug addiction centers for reducing dependency on addictive substances. It has also been found to be successful at helping patients lose significant amounts of weight due to its properties of affecting Dopamine and Dopamine receptors in the brain.

Naltrexone is administered by pellets placed under the skin like BHRT. The medication is slowly released over a period of 90 days and reduces the pleasure and cravings from food. Initial lab work is required and alcohol and opioids are prohibited for the duration of the program.

Danielle & Jeff are warm welcoming and professional. Danielle has a delicate caring touch and vast experience that shows in the final results. Before Skintastic I’ve been to several other places for treatment, this is by far the best and won’t trust anyone else from now on. Have used Danielle for the past year for three different kind treatments and very pleased.

I worked as a Dermatology nurse for close to 10 years and have seen and assisted with many cosmetic treatments in the past. I have to say that Danielle is one of the best providers you will ever find! She takes the time needed to explain the procedure. She makes you feel comfortable and welcome. She is highly trained on the newest techniques and every service is performed at the top level. You won’t find a better value in a more modern, welcoming environment anywhere.
CO2 Chest Resurfacing Treatment:First off, it begins as soon as you walk in–there’s a warm welcome. They always take a moment to chat with you before the procedure begins.I got my chest resurfaced to get rid of the lines. Danielle talked at length with me prior to the procedure. I also tend to “bird walk” to ask her other questions that had nothing to do with the procedure and she was so responsive. She didn’t make me feel like I had to hurry to ask questions. Anyhow, she did such a GREAT job of making sure I was as comfortable as possible and checking in with me the whole time. I’m also going back to take care of my face. She’s just so awesome and I highly, highly recommend her for all of her procedures that she offers.
