When the New Year comes around, many of us make the same resolution to transform our bodies and finally look and feel how we want. Make 2015 the year you actually achieve your goals!
Losing weight isn’t easy. In fact, it may be one of the hardest things you’ve ever attempted. “Why?” we ask. Melody Spacek of BA Med Spa explains, “The truth behind weight loss is that there is no one cure-all plan. Each of us has different needs, causing us to lose weight differently, which is exactly why our staff treats each of our patients on an individual basis.” BA Med Spa & Weight Loss Center is here to help you achieve your goals. Men and women in their medically supervised weight loss programs have reported impressive weight loss results and formed positive new eating habits.
One option in the programs is a regimen of HCG injections. This hormone, naturally produced in the pituitary gland of both genders of all ages, affects fat reserves rather than lean muscle. The injections help fat cells metabolize quickly, so patients see results in pounds and inches almost from the beginning. “We provide patients with a way to jumpstart weight loss while they learn to replace bad eating and lifestyle habits with healthy ones,” says Malissa Spacek, managing partner of BA Med Spa.
First-time patients undergo a physical assessment and blood panel with Dr. James Campbell, managing physician. The information obtained from a patient’s medical history and lab results is then analyzed along with their condition, current lifestyle, and needs to form a customized plan. The weight loss plans at BA Med Spa combine different tools and medications along with constant support both during a patient’s weight loss journey and after this goal is achieved, to ensure patients keep the pounds off for good. Diabetics, women who have just given birth, people preparing for weight loss surgery or who have already had weight loss surgery, and those with numerous other health considerations can be counted among the many patients who have reached and maintained their weight goals. “There’s a newfound self confidence when people look good on the outside and feel good on the inside,” says Malissa.
After reaching their weight loss goals, many patients choose CoolSculpting® to complete their new body transformation. This innovative procedure allows patients to lose any of their remaining problem areas, such as stubborn bumps and bulges, without surgery or downtime. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical technology that targets and cools unwanted fat cells in a selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, no anesthesia, no surgery and no downtime. Patients often spend time reading, working on their laptops or simply relaxing while undergoing this treatment.
Developed by Harvard scientists, this procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen – healthy cells remain healthy. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body.
CoolSculpting is safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results seen after one to three months. Treatment areas may include the abdomen, upper abdomen, love handles, bra line, inner thighs and backs of thighs.
