Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) Medical Weight Loss Program
The HCG medical weight loss program aids in weight loss when patients follow a specific diet, an HCG injection schedule and drink lots of water. HCG, a hormone produced by the body only during pregnancy that regulates the nutrients given to the fetus, allows the body to tap into its stored fat for maximum utilization. With a lower caloric intake and HCG injections, the body is more reliant on its stored fat.Patients entering the HCG medical weight loss program will have a thorough physical exam by Dr. Janine Islam and a basic blood panel drawn to look for renal, hepatic or thyroid disease. Those with a history of reproductive cancers, such as testicular, prostate, breast, endometrial, ovarian or uterine, should not enter the program.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
As the body begins to age, natural changes start to occur from hormone loss. The body is automatically programed to start slowing down hormone production around the age of 20 years with a significant decrease between the ages of 40-50 years. The classic example in women is menopause, while andropause occurs in men.Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is designed to return men and women’s hormones to optimal levels so the body can function as efficiently and effectively as possible. BHRT has the ability to eliminate many troublesome symptoms of aging, such as mood swings, anxiety, depression, hot flashes, loss of sleep, low energy and decreased libido. BHRT is derived from natural plant sources that mimic the body’s natural hormones, which allows the treatment to be more safe and effective than synthetic hormones.
VelaShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming common problem areas.
The VelaShape body contouring and cellulite reduction system combines infrared, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum technology to reduce or eliminate the appearance of cellulite. This combination leads to deep heating of the body’s fat cells, the surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. The energy and vacuum allows for growth of new and better collagen and elastin, which leads to reduced skin laxity, increased body volume and improved skin structure and texture.
