Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Q & A

What are some health benefits of weight loss?

Being overweight can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Obesity can lead to a variety of health problems, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Sleep apnea

Obesity can also make it difficult to maintain a positive self-image. Men and women who struggle with their weight often find it hard to feel confident about their bodies. The good news is that medical weight loss treatment can help you safely lose weight and enjoy a more active lifestyle.

Maintaining a healthy weight allows you to participate in all the physical activities you enjoy, and staying active keeps your heart healthy. Feeling good about your body and weight can improve your psychological health by reducing weight-related stress and anxiety.

What treatments can help improve my appearance?

Dr. James and her team offer a holistic weight loss treatment plan. Treatment begins with a physical exam and blood tests to check for hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiencies. Dr. James provides one-on-one dietary counseling sessions to develop a diet plan that meets your individual needs.

Sound Medical Weight Loss also offers group sessions and online courses to help you redefine your relationship with food. Medication may be recommended to help meet your goals.

Even when overall weight loss treatment is successful, frustrating pockets of fat may linger on areas like your stomach or thighs. SculpSure is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that targets these areas.

How does SculpSure® work?

SculpSure is an FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment that uses specially targeted lasers to help break down fat cells beneath the skin. Unlike fat-removal procedures such as liposuction, SculpSure doesn’t involve surgery. There is no extensive recovery period to interfere with your daily activities. Many patients see results within 6-12 weeks.

At Sound Medical Weight Loss, SculpSure is provided as an outpatient procedure. You can resume most of your normal activities immediately after treatment. It’s even possible to receive a SculpSure treatment during your lunch hour and go right back to work.

Which other aesthetic treatments are available?

In addition to SculpSure, Sound Medical Weight Loss will soon offer Botox treatments and dermal fillers. Botox treatments help prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, while fillers smooth wrinkles and add plumpness to areas of the face where the skin is thin.
