Weight Loss Management Program Details

How does it work?

Each patient needs an initial consult where we go through your medical history, your goals, eating habits, and any questions you may have. We weigh you in our office along with other body composition measurements and give you your results. We then prescribe you a medication that we believe will best fit your needs/lifestyle. We follow up with you monthly for weigh ins and medication refills. 

How do I prepare for my initial consult?

We ask that if you've had a full panel blood work within the last 6 months to please bring in a physical copy to your appointment or email it over prior to info@babeaestheticsny.com. If you have not had blood work within the last 6 months, please let us know and we will send you a prescription after your appointment has been booked that you can bring to your preferred lab. 

We also ask that if you have had a Thyroid Ultrasound and EKG within the last 6 months to also bring in a physical copy to your appointment or email it over prior to info@babeaestheticsny.com. If you have not had these done, we can send a prescription to our medical clinic.

What are my options? 

  1. Semaglutide: Semaglutide is a medication that is used for both the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus and weight loss, similar to Ozempic & Wegovy. It is not covered by insurance, for prices please click the "book now" button. ​

  2. Stimulant: Phentermine which is a tablet taken daily in the morning. 

  3. Super Lipo Lean Injections: A type of injection that contains a combination of vitamins and amino acids that can aid in weight loss and promote overall wellness. 

  4. Tirzepatide: Tirzepatide is a medical weight loss option, supported by clinical trial evidence of its effectiveness in activating specific receptors in the body

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a synthetic glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 RA) that belongs to a class of antidiabetic agents called incretin mimetics. Incretins are endogenous compounds, including glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), that improve glycemic control once released into the circulation via the gut. Semaglutide subcutaneous injections are used as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).  Semaglutide subcutaneous injections are also used to reduce the risk of non-fatal cardiovascular (CV) events and CV mortality in T2DM patients with CV disease. 

What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a weekly injection for managing type 2 diabetes by reducing blood sugar levels. Despite not yet being approved as a weight loss drug, clinical trials have demonstrated its efficacy in aiding weight loss.

 

Tirzepatide functions by stimulating not only the GLP-1 but also the GIP hormone receptors. This medication is exclusively intended for adults and should be combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

When used together for weight loss, Semaglutide and Tirzepatide work synergistically to amplify their effects. While Semaglutide activates GLP-1 receptors, Tirzepatide goes a step further by activating both GLP-1 and GIP hormone receptors. This dual mechanism results in increased insulin production, decreased glucagon secretion, reduced appetite and energy intake, delayed gastric emptying, and significant weight loss in clinical trials compared to placebo. The combined action of Semaglutide and Tirzepatide offers a promising approach for individuals seeking effective strategies for weight management and improved overall health.

 

Four clinical trials for weight management were conducted pre-approval. Depending on the clinical trial, more treated participants lost 5% up to 15% of their initial body weight vs. those taking a placebo. 

1. Reduces food intake by lowering appetite.

2. Slows food digestion in the stomach.

3. Decrease body fat percentage.

4. Weight loss.

5. Decreased cardiovascular outcomes in subjects with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

6. Lower HbA1c levels. 

7. Enhance the growth of β cells in the pancreas.

How Semaglutide & Tirzepatide helps with weight loss? 

How often do I need to take it?

Semaglutide is a once-a-week injectable done at home. Most patients see an 8-10 pound weight loss in the first month. Patients continue losing weight as the dose increases monthly. Semaglutide starts at 0.25mg, then increases to 0.5mg, 1mg,  2mg, and lastly 2.5mg. Babe Aesthetics has the medication delivered right to your front door along with needles, syringes, and alcohol pads. We offer an initial 6-week supply and then the remaining doses are prescribed by the provider at each follow-up visit. Please inquire about pricing by clicking the "book now" button.

What is Phentermine?

Phentermine is an oral sympathomimetic amine used as an adjunct for short-term (e.g., 8—12 weeks) treatment of exogenous obesity. The pharmacologic effects of phentermine are similar to amphetamines. 

What are Super Lipo Lean Injections?

Super Lipo Lean Injections are a non-prescription injection that can be a valuable addition to your weight loss medication regimen, or a healthy diet and exercise plan. With no clearance required, Super Lipo Lean Injections offer a convenient way to enhance your weight loss efforts.

The combination of ingredients in Super Lipo Lean Injections is thought to help boost metabolism, reduce inflammation, and improve energy levels. Additionally, some proponents believe that these shots can help break down fat cells and promote liver function, leading to improved overall health. The ingredients in Super Lipo Lean Injections are:

  1. Methionine: Methionine is an essential amino acid that helps the body break down fats and prevents the accumulation of fat in the liver. It is also important for the production of other amino acids and proteins that the body needs. Methionine may help improve metabolism and reduce inflammation, which could potentially aid in weight loss.

  2. Inositol: Inositol is a type of carbohydrate that is involved in the metabolism of fats and sugars in the body. It may also help regulate insulin levels and reduce inflammation, which could be beneficial for those trying to lose weight. Inositol has also been shown to have a positive effect on mood and may help reduce anxiety and depression, which could contribute to emotional eating.

  3. Choline: Choline is a nutrient that is important for brain and nerve function, as well as liver health. It is also involved in the metabolism of fats and may help the liver process and excrete fat more efficiently. Choline may also help reduce inflammation and improve insulin sensitivity, which could be helpful for weight loss. 

  4. Leucine: Leucine is a critical branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) among three others that can be utilized by skeletal muscles to provide energy during physical activity, and a balanced diet rich in complete proteins such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and milk can provide sufficient amounts of these amino acids.

  5. L-carnitine: L-carnitine is a naturally-occurring compound synthesized in the brain, liver, and kidneys that facilitates the conversion of fat into energy, playing a crucial role in heart and brain function, muscle movement, and numerous other physiological processes; additionally, the body can transform L-carnitine into other beneficial chemicals such as acetyl-L-carnitine and propionyl-L-carnitine.
