If you feel as though you’ve tried everything to lose weight but can’t seem to reduce stubborn areas of fat, you may have considered weight loss treatments. There are several non-invasive fat reduction treatments available to give you that extra push without the need for surgery — but how do you know what the best weight loss treatments for you might be? We’re here to help with our guide to weight loss treatment options.
Are Non-surgical Weight Loss Treatments a Good Option for Me?
Before you research different weight loss treatments and the benefits of each, it’ll help to get an idea of whether non-surgical fat reduction is a good fit for you. Some treatment options may work for you, while others may not be suitable — here are some factors to consider:
Injection lipolysis, ultrasonic cavitation and fat freezing treatments are each designed to target localised fat deposits, which means they’re a good fit for those who are close to their ideal body weight but have isolated stubborn areas of fat.
Saxenda medical weight loss injections can help with weight loss, but this prescription medication treatment is designed to complement regular exercise and a low-calorie diet.
HGH therapy is suitable for adult patients who show symptoms of growth hormone deficiency.
What Are the Best Weight Loss Treatments Available?
Below are further details on the fat reduction methods mentioned above, as well as some additional types of treatment. These are some of the best weight loss treatments available to help patients on their journey to the body shape they’ve been striving for, requiring no invasive surgery and virtually no downtime. You should always consult with a professional clinic specialising in weight loss before seeking treatment.
Saxenda Medical Weight Loss Injections
Saxenda medical weight loss injections are a prescription medication designed to help you along on your weight loss journey. This once-daily injection is a medical weight loss management plan licensed to treat obese or severely overweight patients. It works by regulating your appetite, making you feel full more quickly and for longer after eating. When combined with a low-calorie diet and increased physical activity, this treatment can help you lose weight and keep it off, reducing the risk of weight-related medical problems.
Injection Lipolysis (Aqualyx)
Aqualyx is a different type of weight loss injection that works by dissolving fat cells and reducing the appearance of fatty areas on the body. This treatment can help to shift stubborn fat deposits and is commonly used in areas such as the chin, stomach, love handles, hips and knees. Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections work by breaking down fat cells with deoxycholic acid (DC), a bile acid naturally occurring in the body. Once the dissolution of these fat cells is complete, fatty contents are removed naturally through the lymphatic system.
Ultrasound cavitation, or ultrasonic lipolysis, is a cosmetic procedure that breaks apart fat deposits in your body through the use of ultrasonic radio waves. Just as with Aqualyx, these fat cells are then absorbed into your body naturally by your lymphatic system. At Harley Street MD, we offer cutting edge 3D LIPO ultrasound cavitation treatment at no extra charge to complement Aqualyx injections, helping our patients achieve the best possible results.
Fat Freezing (Cryolipolysis)
Cryolipolysis, or fat freezing, is one of the best weight loss treatments for stubborn areas of fat that aren’t responsive to conventional weight loss methods, such as improved diet and exercise. This treatment is a popular option among those who may have considered liposuction but don’t want to go under the knife. Fat freezing is a procedure that targets fat cells and freezes them, causing apoptosis or “cell death”. Fat cells are more sensitive to temperature than other cells, so the surrounding skin cells will remain undamaged. Dying cells are excreted naturally through the liver.
At our professional cosmetic clinic, we offer fat freezing in combination with shockwave therapy for enhanced results, with up to 40% of fat in the targeted area eliminated in a single session.
Men’s HGH therapy
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy isn’t primarily a weight loss treatment, but it can help to promote fat loss by reducing visceral fat accumulation that is a result of reduced HGH in the body. It’s normal for HGH levels to decrease as men age, but some experience a level of deficiency that negatively impacts their life, causing a loss of muscle mass, increased abdominal fat, lack of energy, poor sexual performance, mood swings and disturbed sleep. If you’re experiencing weight gain alongside other symptoms of HGH deficiency, this treatment could be something for you to discuss with an experienced doctor.
