Weight Loss Services
A Younger You Med Spa also offers weight loss support with a thorough personal assessment and customized treatment. Our weight loss services include:
EKG and Lab Work
An electrocardiogram (EKG) and a blood sample will be taken in order to confirm that overall health is sufficient for exercise.
MIC and Vitamin B12 Injections
MIC injections supply the body with nutrients that aid in weight loss and weekly treatments may contribute an additional 1 to 2 pounds lost per week when used as a supplemental measure to diet and exercise. MIC contains 3 nutrients: methionine, inositol, choline, B1, B2, and B3. These nutrients collectively aid in breaking down waste and detoxifying, converting fat to energy, and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
Body Composition Analysis
Body composition refers to the proportion of body fat related to non-fat mass (including bones, organs, water within the body, muscle, etc.). Healthy body composition is 18-30% for women and 10-25% for men. Body composition influences joint health, sleep quality, blood pressure, energy, mood, respiratory function, and fertility.
Nutrition and Exercise Consultation
A nutrition and exercise specialist will examine the input and output of energy through the body in order to create (or maintain) a healthy ratio. While an excess in input will contribute to weight gain, an excess in output will result in a deficiency. It is important to maintain a healthy balance between these two factors to achieve a healthy weight and lifestyle.
