Popular Medspa Weight Loss Treatments

There are many people who want to lose weight, and a medspa may be the right place to go for weight loss treatments. The problem with many traditional weight loss programs that tell someone to eat less and exercise is that follow-through can be challenging, and the programs do not get the results that many are looking for. Whether the goal is a few pounds or a major amount of weight, a medical spa can help achieve weight loss in a healthy manner.

Types of weight loss treatments

Losing weight is an individualized path because everyone’s body and lifestyles vary. The professionals at a medspa sit down with a client and design a customized program that is tailored specifically for that person.

Hormone injections

Some medspa technicians will inject human chorionic gonadotropin hormone to assist with weight loss. While hCG is often known as a pregnancy hormone, it is safe and natural for both nonpregnant women and men when administered under the direction of a professional.

When hCG is injected, it encourages the body to use fat stores as a source for energy while leaving muscle alone. The hormone works the best in conjunction with a diet that is low in calories, and when done so, it can cause quite a bit of weight loss quickly and the body is able to keep the weight off.


There are a number of formulas that estimate someone’s caloric needs on a daily basis. However, these are often not accurate because certain aspects, such as medication use or thyroid issues, are not factored in. The MedGem® is an FDA-approved indirect calorimeter device that is able to more accurately determine the nutritional needs of each client.

The device is easy to use, as one just breathes into it. The MedGem® then uses each client’s oxygen consumption level to determine an individual metabolic rate. This allows the medical spa clinician to construct a more specific weight loss plan.


Phentermine is an FDA-approved weight loss drug that is available by prescription only. It is intended more for clients who are obese and have been unable to lose weight using conventional methods. This medication acts like amphetamine and can suppress hunger as well as make one feel fuller for longer periods of time.

Vitamin B12 injections

Vitamin B12 has many functions, and it is also known as the energy vitamin. An injection of this vitamin may help increase the body’s metabolism rate. As a result, a client will have a boost in energy and will not have many of the negative effects that accompany a reduced calorie diet. This helps most people stick with a weight loss program for a longer period of time, which typically results in sustained weight loss.

Spa treatments

There are numerous spa treatments that can encourage weight loss by reducing fluid retention, improving digestion and removing toxins. Some of these treatments include:

  • Body wraps
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Abdominal massage
  • Hot spa treatments


People who are having difficulties losing weight by just eating right and staying active may find that a medspa offers additional options that may help. A spa professional can assess each client to determine what the best weight loss plan is.
