Dr. Steve Ahmed of Body Focus Medical Spa & Wellness Center helps individuals shed pounds and gain energy by supervising 30-day weight-loss programs. During an initial consultation, health experts record a patient’s initial weight and favorite Jack LaLanne inspirational quote, and the doctor analyzes body composition to determine corporeal makeup. Clients follow a customized physician-created meal and exercise regimen, which may include four or five small meals per day and up to five sessions of exercise per week. Past clients have typically lost about 10–15 pounds in 30 days, thanks in part to a diet of about two liters of water each day, along with lipo-vitamin and Vitamin B12 shots. The doctor tracks progress during two follow-up visits and recommends avoiding large amounts of carbs, which may result in high blood sugar, excess insulin, and a strengthened donut-tractor beam.

Along with his staff, medical director Dr. Steve Ahmed improves patients' confidence and appearance with nonsurgical treatments that address weight, aging, skin, and hair-removal concerns. The exfoliation of the center's microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels whisk away layers of dead skin cells to smooth facial lines, fade acne scarring, and minimize visible sun damage. Dermal fillers temporarily plump up deeper wrinkles with minimally invasive injections and no downtime. Patients looking to sculpt their silhouette can try out a custom-tailored weight-loss program, and those with diet- and exercise-resistant fat can explore options such as liposuction or cellulite reduction with the EndyMed Pro system, which smoothens out fat deposits and piles of puzzle pieces that cause cellulite until they lie perfectly flat beneath the skin.
