The Miami Differentiator
A good coach offers the discipline and oversight to help you reach your goals. At AM Beauty & Wellness, the key to your success also includes the skill and expertise of Dr. Martin. You will first have a consultation to determine your weight loss and body transformation goals. Then, like a coach, Dr. Martin will look over your health and lifestyle details to devise a unique treatment plan that may include injectable or oral medications like Semaglutide, Tirzepatide, and Vyvanse combined with Emsculpt Neo body sculpting.
Body weight and composition will be independently assessed as part of this evaluation. Doctor Martin may also suggest a full blood panel to check for hormonal imbalances influencing your weight. Aside from that, he will inquire about your nutrition history. Expect more than a one-and-done approach. Scheduled check-ins will allow us to keep tabs on how you're doing and provide you with any further resources you may need.
Rapid Weight Loss
Medications like Semaglutide (Ozempic, Trulicity), Vyvanse, and Contrave help people lose weight and can benefit many people. Dr. Martin knows and has been trained in all of the available FDA-approved weight loss treatments. If it makes sense, Dr. Martin may add prescription weight management medications to your overall plan for managing your weight.
Semaglutide is a revolutionary, FDA-approved prescription weight loss aid that helps patients achieve their goal weight without intensive diet and exercise, or surgery. Semaglutide weight loss treatment taps into the power of a hormone called GLP-1, which naturally regulates appetite and glucose levels in our bodies.
By mimicking this hormone, semaglutide (sold under the brand names Ozempic and Wegovy, and sometimes called the “Skinny Shot”) tricks our brains into feeling full and satisfied, curbing those pesky cravings. It also slows down digestion and promotes the burning of stored fat. With semaglutide, shedding those extra pounds becomes an exciting journey toward a healthier, happier you!
Ozempic is a popular treatment option for those looking for effective weight loss help. Many of our Miami medical weight loss patients ask whether Ozempic or Semaglutide is better for them, but this is based on a common misconception! Ozempic is a branded form of Semaglutide, so they are essentially the same medication. Patients looking at Ozempic as a treatment option can expect to receive exceptional weight loss support and a range of additional benefits. One of the standout features of Ozempic is its proven track record in clinical trials, where it has demonstrated impressive weight loss results.
Semaglutide injections offer a significant fat reduction in a way that fits your life. With no recovery, downtime, or extreme diet and exercise, you can improve your sleep, mood, self-esteem, mobility, and overall health. By achieving a healthier weight, you can reduce pain as well as the risk of conditions associated with obesity, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension.
Weekly injections mean you won’t need to worry about missing a dose, making Semaglutide an easy therapy to incorporate into your regular routine. Optimal results appear after approximately 28 weeks of treatment and can be maintained indefinitely with ongoing therapy and a healthy lifestyle. While most patients see a 10-15 percent reduction in body fat with Semaglutide, others have lost more than 20 percent of their body fat.
Semaglutide is prescribed to help patients seeking a better way to take control of their life by reducing excess weight. It's suitable for those with a BMI over 27 and weight-related medical conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure. It's also for patients with a BMI of 30 or higher who wish to achieve and maintain their ideal weight.
There are some conditions and medications that may contraindicate Semaglutide injections, so it is important to provide your full medical history and medications to avoid complications. Patients with type 1 diabetes, diabetic ketoacidosis, a personal or family history of certain cancers, or a known allergy or hypersensitivity to any product ingredients should not receive Semaglutide injections.
Dr. Martin understands that achieving a healthy and desirable body goes beyond weight loss alone. That's why he offers personalized treatment plans that incorporate a holistic approach to help you achieve your goals. In addition to prescribing Ozempic as a powerful weight loss aid, Dr. Martin may recommend combining it with EmSculpt NEO for enhanced muscle toning and a healthier overall appearance.
When used in conjunction with Ozempic, EmSculpt NEO can complement the weight loss journey by helping to enhance muscle definition. This combination approach not only helps you shed unwanted pounds but also provides an opportunity to sculpt and shape your body for a more toned and aesthetically pleasing physique. During your consultation with Dr. Martin, he will assess your specific needs, goals, and medical history to determine if incorporating EmSculpt NEO into your treatment plan can be the perfect option for you.
Tirzepatide is an experimental medication currently being studied as a potential treatment for type 2 diabetes and obesity. What makes it exciting is its ability to not only help regulate blood sugar levels but also promote significant weight loss.
By activating certain receptors in the body, tirzepatide mimics the actions of hormones that control insulin and blood sugar. Clinical trials have shown promising results in terms of improving blood sugar control and supporting substantial weight loss. It's important to note that tirzepatide is still undergoing research and has not received regulatory approval yet, but its potential for weight loss makes it an intriguing candidate for individuals struggling with obesity.
"Mounjaro" is a branded medicine that contains the active ingredient tirzepatide. Tirzepatide is a compound naturally found in the body that plays crucial roles in various bodily functions. It acts as a mimic of two important classes of hormones: glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). This unique ability to mimic both GLP-1 and GIP hormones sets tirzepatide apart.
Semaglutide is an effective medication for weight loss as it reduces appetite, promotes feelings of fullness, and keeps the body in a "fat-burning" mode. It also helps regulate blood sugar and specifically targets fat cells, minimizing the risk of muscle loss or dehydration. Additionally, it has shown promising results in halting plaque production in blood vessels, benefitting cardiovascular health.
The three-month Semaglutide diet program does not impose food restrictions, but it emphasizes the importance of a healthy diet for overall well-being and increased energy levels. While exercise is not mandatory, incorporating physical activity, such as walking, is recommended for its health benefits. The program offers the opportunity to meet with a virtual health coach monthly, who can provide guidance, suggest healthier eating plans, and address psychological and emotional factors contributing to overeating.
Benefits of the Semaglutide diet program include the disappearance of physical hunger, improved sleep, higher energy levels, assistance with insulin pathways and blood sugar regulation, and an average weight loss of 15% of body weight. The health coach plays a crucial role in keeping patients on track and supporting them in creating sustainable lifestyle changes after the program ends. Weight loss results can vary from 1 to 3 pounds per week, with greater outcomes possible for those with more weight to lose.
Alternative Treatment Options
If you do not qualify for Semaglutide or Tirzepatide, Dr. Martin will work out a tailored program for you utilizing alternative pharmaceuticals like Vyvanse and Contrave.
While Vyvanse is not specifically approved to treat obesity or promote weight loss, it has been FDA-approved for the treatment of binge-eating disorders.
What is Vyvanse, and how is Vyvanse taken?
Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a prescription medication approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe binge eating disorder (BED) in adults. It is used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes therapy or counseling to address the psychological and emotional aspects of BED. Taken orally in a once-daily dose in the morning, Vyvanse helps reduce binge eating episodes by impacting chemicals in the brain related to impulse control and appetite regulation. It can increase feelings of fullness and decrease the frequency of uncontrollable urges to overeat. The dosage is determined by a healthcare professional, starting with a lower dose and gradually adjusting to achieve the desired effect.
Additional info on Vyvanse
It is important to note that Vyvanse is not intended for weight loss or as a standalone treatment for obesity. Its usage for binge eating disorders should be closely supervised by a healthcare professional who can provide guidance and monitor its effectiveness. Vyvanse may have side effects, such as increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, insomnia, dry mouth, and decreased appetite. Prior to starting Vyvanse, it is crucial to have a thorough discussion with a healthcare professional to assess potential risks and benefits and to ensure that it is an appropriate treatment option for managing binge eating disorder.
Contrave is an FDA-approved medication that reduces hunger and helps to control cravings and is designed to help overweight individuals and those struggling with obesity to lose weight and maintain that weight loss.
What is Contrave, and how is it taken?
Contrave is a prescription medication designed to aid in weight management. It combines two active ingredients, bupropion, and naltrexone, which work together to reduce appetite and control cravings. It is intended for use in adults with a BMI of 30 or higher or a BMI of 27 or higher with weight-related medical conditions. Contrave is taken orally in tablet form, with the recommended dosage starting at one tablet in the morning and gradually increasing to two tablets in the morning and two tablets in the evening.
Additional info on Contrave
The medication should be taken with a low-fat meal to minimize gastrointestinal side effects. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by a healthcare professional, and the duration of treatment may vary based on individual response and weight management goals. Potential side effects include nausea, constipation, headache, dizziness, and insomnia. It is crucial to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized guidance and monitoring and to address any concerns or questions related to Contrave usage.
All of these options should only be used under the guidance and supervision of a qualified healthcare professional like Dr. Martin.
