FDA-Approved appetite Suppressants, B-12, B-Complex & Lipotopic Injections, HCG Diet &Science-Based Meal Replacements.
As a top Atlanta weight loss doctor with more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Mark Guerdan knows that when it comes to permanent weight loss, one size does not fit all.
He’s seen just about every faddish crash diet, unproven weight loss drug, and questionable herbal remedy available. They may offer short-lived success but, for permanent weight loss, there is no substitute for a sensible diet and exercise program.
That’s why Dr. Guerdan tailors weight loss programs to fit your individual needs and lifestyle. He uses a multimodal program, including diet modification, exercise, and prescription-strength appetite suppressants (if indicated). So, whether you just want to lose a few pounds, or you suffer from obesity, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, thyroid or heart disease, Dr. Guerdan can help you get healthy and stay healthy.
At vitality Wellness & Aesthetics, We start with a comprehensive medical exam, including bloodwork and body measurement analysis, conveniently performed in our office. Then, you’ll meet one-on-one with Dr. Guerdan to design a weight loss program that best fits your individual needs and lifestyle.
Modified Meal Replacement (With Optional Prescription Therapy)
Changing your diet and exercise habits can seem like a daunting task, especially when you’re already busy and often have an unpredictable schedule.
That’s why, at Vitality Wellness & Aesthetics, we offer our patients two healthful, science-based meal replacement options: IdealShape and DoctorsBest. Many patients find these meal replacements help speed up weight loss and ease the transition to a healthier life style, while others rely on them long- term to help balance a hectic, but healthy, lifestyle.
Vitamin B-12, B-Complex & Lipotopic Injections
Lipotopic Injections are a combination of all-natural co- enzymes and amino acids designed to help you burn fat faster. Methionine, Inositol, and choline help to mobilize fat, while L-carnitine increases the metabolism. These fat burning shots can be combined with other weight loss programs and are administered one a week.
Vitamin B-12 injections boost your energy level and your metabolism, helping you to shed unwanted pounds quickly. The injections can be combined with other weight loss programs and are administered once a week in the convenience of our office.
Under proper supervision from a licensed physician, the HCG Diet can be a safe, effective way to shed that stubborn, extra fat. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone naturally produced by pregnant woman. It substantially increases the body’s metabolic function, resulting in a daily loss of 1 to 2 lbs. of adipose fat tissue, rather than lean muscle. (Of course, everyone is different and results may vary.) HCG can be administered subcutaneously, meaning under the skin, or sublingually by placing an oral disintegrating tablet under the tongue. While the program is complimented by a low-carb, low- calorie diet, most people on the HCG diet report feeling satisfied because HCG causes the body to release enough stored calories and fat to maintain the body normally. In addition, FDA-approved Rx appetite Suppressants are optional, when indicated by a licensed physician.
Prescription –Strength Appetite Suppressants
When prescribed and supervised by a licensed physician, optional prescription therapy can be a powerful ally in the fight against obesity. In fact some prescription-strength appetite suppressants have been FDA-approved and used safely since the 1950’s.
When indicated, we may prescribe: Phentermine, Adipex-P, Bontril, Phendimetrazine, Tenuate, Diethylproprion, Qysimia, or Belviq.
