Weight Loss Treatment Options
(*Please Note Results May Vary)
We believe that creating a holistic, multifaceted plan can help Edmonton weight loss patients shed pounds and keep them off. That’s why we offer treatments and services for each step along the way. Please follow the links below to learn more about our options.
- Cellulite treatments: Sometimes after a patient has lost weight, stubborn cellulite can remain, making cellulite treatments an important facet of a thorough weight loss plan. Our medical team can use radiofrequency energy or mesotherapy (injections of various chemicals) to break down the nodules of fat that cause the bumpy look of cellulite.
- Accent™ skin tightening: Our Accent radiofrequency device can be used to improve the look of cellulite, but we also use it to tighten skin in many areas of the body that can be difficult to change through diet and exercise alone. We use Accent on the abdomen, thighs, hips, and even the face and neck. The completely non-invasive procedure delivers radiofrequency energy into the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen growth and tighten the surface layers. We find it to be a highly effective treatment for patients who are left with loose skin after weight loss.
- CoolSculpting® fat reduction treatment: CoolSculpting is one of the most innovative and effective cosmetic treatments to come along in the past few years. For patients who have areas of stubborn fat that aren’t affected by diet and exercise, we can perform non-invasive CoolSculpting. The treatment applies an intense cold to targeted areas (usually the abdomen, hips, thighs, and lower back) to bring about up to a 25% reduction in fat *.
- Stretch mark treatment: For those who have done the hard work of losing weight, stretch marks can be an unfortunate side effect that mars their results. We combine several different treatment methods to help diminish the appearance of stretch marks: laser treatments such as Proellixe Vibration Therapy and HALO laser skin resurfacing, physical treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels, at-home skincare products, and prescription medications.
