Successful Weight Loss

Weight Loss Program Designed For You

Weight loss is a struggle for many people because obesity is often a symptom of an underlying root cause. Addressing that symptom without knowing the cause often leads to failure. People end up feeling drained and discouraged with typical diet and exercise regimens, can’t make progress, or make some progress and go backward quickly. 

At Henson Wellness and Aesthetics, we start with a comprehensive wellness evaluation. With a thorough understanding of your hormone levels, nutritional needs, and other important factors, we can recommend a weight loss plan to address that root cause, helping you achieve your weight loss goals and, more importantly, keep the weight off with a combination of peptides and hormone therapy. 

What Is Our Approach To Successful Weight Loss?

Our approach for each individual is different and is based on the results from the patient’s initial evaluation. Frequently, we find hormonal imbalances that need to be addressed and start there. We also recommend lifestyle changes, offer nutritional guidance, and make supplements and nutriceuticals available to our patients. Weight loss injections may also be recommended.

Losing weight only to gain it back again becomes a cycle that needs to be broken. And we can break it.

What Are The Recommended Weight Loss Injections?

The intersection of science and wellness has paved the way for groundbreaking advancements in the relentless pursuit of effective weight loss strategies. One such innovation gaining prominence is using Tirzepatide or Semaglutide, a GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1 agonist). This class of medications, originally designed to manage diabetes, has demonstrated remarkable potential in addressing the complex and multifaceted challenges associated with weight loss.

What Is A GLP-1?

GLP-1s are naturally occurring hormones that play a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels. These hormones stimulate insulin secretion, inhibit glucagon release, and slow down gastric emptying. Their effectiveness in managing diabetes has led to increased exploration of their potential in the realm of weight management.

What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to the class of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It imitates the function of the GLP-1 hormone that is released in the gastrointestinal tract when we eat. One of the tasks of GLP-1 is to stimulate the body to produce more insulin, which in turn lowers the blood glucose (sugar) level. Moreover, GLP-1 also interacts with the parts of the brain that control appetite and promote the feeling of fullness, resulting in a decreased urge to eat.

What Is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a medication that combines two natural hormones – glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and GLP-1 receptor agonism – to create a synergistic effect on appetite, food intake, and metabolism. It has been approved in many countries, such as the US, EU, and Japan, as a once-weekly subcutaneous injection for treating type 2 diabetes and obesity. In a placebo-controlled trial involving participants with obesity or overweight without diabetes, Tirzepatide resulted in an average reduction of up to 20.9% in body weight after 72 weeks of treatment.

How Will Weight Loss Injections Help Me Lose Weight?

Weight loss injections influence weight loss through various physiological mechanisms. One key aspect is the impact on appetite regulation. These medications act on the brain’s appetite centers, signaling a decrease in hunger and an increase in satiety. As a result, individuals are less likely to overeat, making it easier to adhere to a calorie-restricted diet.

Furthermore, weight loss injections contribute to weight loss by slowing down gastric emptying. This delay in emptying the stomach leads to prolonged feelings of fullness, reducing the urge to snack between meals. Combined with a well-designed diet and exercise plan, this effect can be a powerful tool in achieving sustainable weight loss.

Insulin resistance is a common obstacle in weight loss efforts, as it hinders the body’s ability to utilize glucose for energy effectively. Weight loss injections have shown promise in improving insulin sensitivity, enhancing the body’s response to insulin, and promoting better glucose utilization. By addressing this aspect of metabolic health, these medications contribute to a more efficient energy balance, aiding in weight loss and metabolic optimization.

I look at each patient as unique and consider all aspects of their lifestyle and health to come up with a plan that accomplishes their goals. And I strive to make treatment as affordable as possible.

While both Semaglutide and Tirzepatide offer extremely promising results in weight management, it’s crucial to acknowledge potential considerations. As with any medication, individual responses may vary. Some individuals may experience side effects, such as nausea or gastrointestinal discomfort. However, these effects are often transient and can be managed with proper guidance from healthcare professionals. 

To lessen any potential health risks, make sure you share all pertinent health-related information during your initial evaluation. You will be provided with a list of potential side effects prior to administration.

If you are a patient with high cholesterol or type 2 diabetes, or perhaps you have a BMI of 30 kg/m2 or more, you are likely a great candidate for weight loss injections. Our comprehensive evaluation with lab work will help us ensure that this is the best option for you to be able to reach your personal goals.
