Medical Weight Loss vs. Regular Weight Loss | NAWI Naples Wellness Center

Weight Loss

 

You have likely tried a range of traditional weight loss programs, only to feel like you have wasted your time. Typical weight loss methods are not designed for a specific user and do not take into account your body type, metabolism, or appetite. If you have tried numerous weight loss treatments and still feel unhappy with the results, we have the perfect solution for you! At NAWI Wellness Center in Naples, FL, we offer a range of medical weight loss services. Medical weight loss is growing in popularity due to the nature of the process and the highly effective results it produces. If you want to know more about the weight loss management programs we offer, call us to schedule a consultation.

What is Medical Weight Loss?

If you are not familiar with the term ‘medical weight loss’ you may feel intimidated by the idea. Understanding what it is and how it works can help you to benefit from it. Medical weight loss is the process of losing body mass with the guidance of a healthcare professional. We create a realistic and customized treatment plan for you to lose weight under your unique circumstances. We don’t stop there. After you have achieved your desired weight, we help you to stay in shape.

Unlike traditional weight loss programs that depend on your ability to commit and follow through, medical weight management offers support throughout the whole process. Your first step towards your goals is an initial consultation.

During this consultation, we will learn more about your areas of concern and discuss your desired goals. This will help us design a treatment plan that suits your lifestyle and unique needs. 

The second phase of the process is behavior modification. Changing your behavior is one of the most effective methods to lose weight. You will gain weight when you take in more energy than your body needs. Weight loss occurs when you use more energy than you consume. The goal of this phase is to adjust your key behaviors that influence eating habits and activity levels.

The third step towards achieving your goals is through weight loss medication. Weight loss medication helps your body to burn extra energy quicker. Weight loss medication will complement your weight loss diet and exercise plan rather than replace it. We will monitor the use of medication throughout your weight loss journey and ensure that you benefit from it.

How Does It Differ From Regular Weight Loss?

Medical weight loss is a highly effective way to lose weight. It has a higher success rate than regular weight loss methods. Here are a few reasons to consider medical weight loss:

Easy to Follow

Support

The NAWI team will support you through the whole process, from creating a treatment plan to monitoring your progress and results. This means that you have professional medical advice at your fingertips.

Medical Weight Loss Solutions

Semaglutide

We offer injections for weight loss, including Semaglutide. This is effective when combined with a regular exercise routine and a healthy diet. This injectable provides results within the first two weeks after the initial injection.

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved hormone that alters your appetite and digestion. It is naturally released by your body after you have eaten. Additional injections of this hormone slows the rate of digestion and tells your body that you are full, reducing your appetite and calorie intake, which results in weight loss.

UltraSlim

UltraSlim offers rapid fat loss after just one treatment session. It is FDA-approved for body contouring. The results you can achieve with UltraSlim are more dramatic than alternative treatments. A great advantage is that there is no downtime or invasive incisions. 

UltraSlim utilizes red light to tell your body to release stored fat cells. This treatment is highly effective and very quick. Within a few days of using UltraSlim, your lymphatic system will start to flush out the fat cells, resulting in weight loss.

What Is Medical Weight Loss? | NAWI Naples Wellness Center

Many people come to us feeling like they have already tried everything to lose their stubborn weight. For these patients, diet, exercise, pills, and fads have done nothing to shed the weight. At NAWI Wellness Center, our weight loss program helps patients in Naples, FL to finally be able to manage their weight. With our gentle treatments, we can help to get you back on the path of weight loss without the frustration of tedious and difficult programs that don’t yield results. 

Why Weight Loss Management? 

Many people think of weight loss as simply a matter of exercising more and eating less. However, the topic is much more nuanced. Many different problems can lead to weight gain. Medical problems, imbalances of the hormones that regulate appetite, genetic predisposition, and more can all contribute to a person’s weight gain. 

Because of this, weight loss can be frustrating. Even on the weeks when a patient has the ability to perfectly follow a strict diet and exercise plan, the results can be incredibly disappointing. In situations where an individual is experiencing health problems as a result of weight and they are struggling to lose weight, it can be helpful to seek the advice and assistance of a medical professional who specializes in weight loss. At our practice, we feel that the best way to get the results you are looking for is to ask us for help and allow us to find the right solution for you. 

Our Weight Loss Program

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all solution for weight loss. Because there are many different reasons why weight gain may have occurred, there needs to be just as many ways of approaching the situation. That is why we offer customized weight loss management programs for each individual who seeks our treatments. In many cases, we can combine our treatments with non-invasive body sculpting and skin tightening treatments. 

Semaglutide Weight Loss Treatments

Semaglutide is a type of weight loss injection that can help bring you down to your target weight and jumpstart a healthier lifestyle. The main ingredient in these injections is semaglutide which is a hormone that is similar to one found in the body. This hormone helps to increase insulin production which, in turn, can lead to a decreased appetite. When using this medication, you can feel fuller after meals. It can also help you feel more energetic which can lead to a more active lifestyle. 

With semaglutide treatments, you can lose an average of 15% of your body weight and results can begin appearing after two weeks of treatment. At our office, we will help you combine these treatments with a healthy lifestyle to help you maintain weight loss. 

UltraSlim® Weight Loss Treatments

UltraSlim is a pain-free and non-invasive weight loss treatment that can help you quickly lose inches off of your waistline in just one session. The UltraSlim device uses red light therapy to help your body shed fat. During treatment, you will relax under the device while it penetrates into the fat layer of the skin. This light penetration is extremely superficial, making it a safer option than many other body contouring devices. 

Once in your skin, the red light causes fat cells to empty out their contents. Your body then excretes it through bowel movements or urination during the next few days. In just one session, patients can lose 1 liter or more of fat which can amount to 3.5” from their waistline. You can see results right away and these results can continue as your lymphatic system continues to take care of the fatty tissues that have been released from the cells. This treatment can be the right choice for many people who are struggling to lose weight. 

The Importance of Prescribed Treatments

When you are considering weight loss injections, diet plans, or any other type of weight loss program, it is essential to consult your doctor and have injections for weight loss and medications prescribed to you and administered by a licensed physician. Many of these treatments can come with complications if self-administered and should never be given by someone who does not have the right credentials.
