Luxe House Weight Loss Program Q & A
What Is Medical Weight Loss?
Luxe House Aesthetics Medical Weight Loss Management Program adopts an integrative approach to assess your overall health and wellness. Our programs are customized to align seamlessly with your unique needs and personal weight management objectives.
Under the guidance of our medical team, we conduct a thorough evaluation of the obstacles that may have impeded your past weight loss journey. Through a collaborative effort, we create a comprehensive plan aimed at enhancing your well-being, incorporating elements such as weekly weight loss injections, personalized dietary recommendations, and nutritional guidance to optimize your individualized weight loss journey.
What Weight Loss Medications Do You Offer And How Does It Work?
1. Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. GLP-1 affects areas of the brain that help regulate appetite, thus is an appetite suppressant and will decrease the intake of food. Semaglutide also delays how quickly your stomach empties food, keeping you feeling full longer.
2. Tirzepatide is both a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). The GIP hormone can also trigger insulin creation and sensations of fullness. This means tirzepatide may offer an extra weight loss boost.
How Do I Know If I Qualify?
To determine if you are a good candidate, we ask you provide a comprehensive lab panel to address any underlying causes that may be preventing you from losing weight. We will also go over any contraindications that may disqualify you from taking any weight loss medication.
Please let your provider know if you are currently on any weight loss medications or supplements, have kidney, heart, or liver problems, or are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, and/or breastfeeding. These medications are contraindicated in those with a personal or family history of Thyroid C- Cell Tumors such as Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma (MTC) or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome Type 2 (MEN 2).
What Does Your Weight Loss Management Program Entail?
Every patient will have a initial consult where we discuss your medical history, weight loss goals, previous diets, body composition analysis and initial weigh in with our smart scale. We create a tailored weight loss program for you with the medication that best fits your individual needs. We provide the option of working with our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) during your weight loss program as well as after to maintain your results.
These weight loss medications are weekly injections that can be done in our office under our supervision or at home with self-administration. We will also schedule (in office or at home) monthly follow ups for weigh ins, progress, any symptom management, continued treatment plan and medication refills. Repeat bloodwork will be required every 6 months during your weight loss program.
How Do I Prepare For My Initial Weight Loss Consultation?
1. A full panel blood work (TSH/Thyroid and CMP) within the last 6 months is required before your initial consult. If you already have your bloodwork, please email it prior to your appointment to email@example.com. If you need more recent bloodwork, please let us know and we can provide a prescription to your preferred lab prior to your consult.
2. Once you have booked your appointment, please fill out all required paperwork that is emailed to you prior to your appointment.
How Long Is The Medical Weight Loss Program?
Every weight loss journey will vary and duration will depend on weight loss goals and progress. Dosing plan is customized to each patient's goals and tolerance. We may recommend maintenance dose for weeks to months prior to ending treatment. An End-of-Program check-in with our medical team will provide guidance for weaning off, maintenance while off the medication, and potential for restarting the program in the future, if desired.
How Much Does It Cost?
Our Weight Loss Management Program starts at $400 monthly and varies depending on the type of medication, dosages, incorporation of our nutritionist and in office medication pickup or at home medication delivery.
