Losing unwanted pounds requires an approach that combines short-term and long-term regimens to generate real change over time. At Massachusetts Medical Weight Loss Centers, such multifaceted treatment plans are used to help individuals achieve the body image they desire. The centers' medical director, Dr. Joseph Palma, oversees a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical assistants, and registered dietitians. Their nutritional counseling and lifestyle guidance help patients make changes in their everyday lives that can help them shed unwanted weight. Support is also offered in the form of metabolism-boosting injections, appetite suppressants, and noninvasive Lipo-Light body contouring, which uses light energy to trigger adipose tissues into releasing their fatty-acid contents. When coupled with regular exercise and a healthy diet, these body-contouring treatments can help shrink stubborn fat deposits on patients' limbs, torsos, and vestigial tails.

Losing weight should be done carefully or else patients can become ill or enter a yo-yoing cycle in which they continuously shed and gain fat. That's why the physician-supervised program at Medi-Weightloss is health-focused above all else. Doctors helm examinations with EKG tests and blood panels, consult with patients weekly, and prescribe medication if necessary. Additionally, the doctors teach patents how to become healthier in their everyday lives, doling out tips on how to best exercise, consume fast food, and shop at the grocery store.
At America's Lipo Center and Spa, clients get a fully rounded ultrasound lipo treatment. Using no needles or incisions, a high-intensity focused ultrasound pinpoints fat cells and attacks their membranes so that they release their contents, much like when you tickle your sister so she drops the last piece of pizza. The fatty contents then make their way into the lymphatic system, where they're escorted from the body along with other toxins.
Next, radio frequency heats the targeted areas, liquefying fat and tightening the skin. Six to nine treatments tend to achieve the best results; a massage during each session gets the lymphatic system going. Clients also get their heart rates up with 30 minutes of supervised cardio to help burn fat, and they're entitled to unlimited use of the onsite exercise facilities.
