Weight Loss Q & A

What makes the medically supervised weight-loss plan different?

The “WOW” weight-loss program at Heron Med Spa isn’t focused on pricey, prepackaged foods or unrealistic liquid meal replacements. Dr. Heron counsels and guides you to learn how to make healthy choices when grocery shopping, preparing food at home, and eating out.

He makes weight loss realistic and achievable. You won’t experience the “yo-yo” effect that occurs with so many fad diets that encourage poor nutrition, deprivation, and chemically processed supplements.

What does the weight-loss package include?

Weight loss packages at Heron Med Spa include weekly visits with the staff to weigh in and receive nutritional counseling, education, and support. The team works to help you with behavior modification that guides you toward healthy eating habits at home and when you’re out.

Some patients benefit from nonprescription appetite suppressants and biweekly vitamin B12 injections to boost your energy and metabolism. You’re provided with a customized meal plan to help you lose weight and maintain your results.

What is the 5-stage weight-loss program?

The 5-stage “WOW” program helps you detox from processed foods, lose weight, and maintain long-term results that last a lifetime. The plan allows you to go at a pace that works for you and helps prevent plateaus that can be disheartening and frustrating.

Each stage of the program is designed to cater to your individual dietary preferences and health needs. Dr. Heron recognizes that no two people are alike, so diet plans should meet your needs rather than be a one-size-fits-all approach.

What are the benefits of vitamin B12 injections for weight loss?

Vitamin B12 provides you with added energy and increases exercise tolerance and stamina. The injections assist with weight loss by allowing you to exercise at a higher intensity and accelerating your metabolism.

What is Cell-Press Plus?

Cell-Press Plus is a dietary supplement that naturally suppresses your appetite. It contains chromium, a mineral that optimizes your metabolism, and cellulose, a hydrophilic filler that absorbs water and increases feelings of fullness.

Cell-Press Plus is an all-natural alternative to prescription weight-loss medications, and it has no side effects.

Do I qualify for prescription appetite suppressants?

In some cases, prescription weight-loss medication may be warranted. Before receiving such medications, you must undergo a physical, EKG, and comprehensive blood work.

Dr. Heron then determines if you’re a good candidate for prescription medication, especially if you haven’t had success with more natural weight-loss strategies.
