Weight Loss Q & A

What weight-loss treatments are available?

At Izar Wellness Institute, there are several weight-loss methods available to you depending on your goals. You can take advantage of:

  • Hormone replacement therapies
  • KYBELLA® injections to reduce chin fat
  • Exercise and diet plans
  • Colonic hydrotherapy
  • Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and sermorelin injections

Dr. Rafael Nieto can help you understand how each of these approaches can help you. He may offer them independently or combine them to get you the best results.

What are HCG injections?

HCG injections are injections of the hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin, which women produce during pregnancy. HCG, however, has the ability to speed up your metabolism and break down stored fat. When combined with a very low-calorie diet, HCG injections result in fast, effective weight loss.

What is sermorelin?

Sermorelin is a medication that stimulates the natural release of human growth hormone (HGH). Injections of the medication assist your body into producing more HGH, which helps:

  • Improve physical performance
  • Improve immune function
  • Enhance sleep quality
  • Decrease body fat

Sermorelin is especially effective as you age when the production of HGH naturally slows down, making you put on unexpected pounds.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable medication that breaks down fat specifically in the submental region – otherwise known as a double chin. You may have excess fat at the chin due to being overweight, but sometimes it’s a genetic condition or a natural result of aging. Regardless, a double chin can make you look heavier or older than you actually are.

You may need up to six injections to get optimal results, but the results are permanent.

How does hormone therapy help with weight loss?

When your hormones are out of balance, you’re vulnerable to weight gain. You may also find it hard to lose weight through conventional diet and exercise programs. At Izar Wellness Institute, Dr. Nieto can assess your hormone status and offer replacement hormones, such as testosterone for men, to help restore hormonal balance and make weight loss possible again.
