There's nothing more satisfying than successfully completing a weight-loss program, unless that program involves an irreversible shrink-ray. Shed pounds while remaining unappetizing to house pets with today's Groupon: for $135, you get a 10-pound HCG Quick Track weight-loss treatment (a $275.50 value) at Radiant MedSpa in Wallingford.
The HCG Quick Track version of the HCG Slim Track diet is designed for time-strapped people aiming to get rid of a final 10 persnickety pounds after other programs plateau. An initial physician assessment ($93 value) at Radiant MedSpa's elegant, hyena-free office determines if your body-mass index is within the range eligible for this exercise-free program (if not, the balance can be applied toward the regular Slim Track program (about $475)). The two-week pilgrimage to slightly thinnerdom continues at home with daily injections of HCG ($112.50 value), a glycoprotein hormone that boosts metabolism and weight loss, just like a glass of whole milk boosts one's phonebook-ripping skills. Throughout this period, dieters stick to a restricted number of calories per day, thanks to an included supply of chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or pumpkin-spice protein shakes ($45 value), as well as a diet-specific cooking oil ($25) and cookbook filled with recipes to keep your stomach full and your energy up throughout the treatment. A follow-up visit after 14 days marks the end of the diet with a brief funeral for your dearly departed 10 pounds, after which you'll be free to continue shedding excess freight on your own with the modified eating habits you've gleaned from Radiant MedSpa.
- Weight loss was my biggest goal and I really wanted to lose 40 pounds before I got up front and spoke. HCG Slim Track helped me do that in a little over 6 weeks. It was truly incredible, but a very disciplined diet. Afterward, they even encouraged me to stay on the healthy path and keep the pounds off. Absolutely awesome program! – Google Mapper on July 31, 2010
- The diet is a little hard to stick to, but well worth the time and effort, trust me. The place is really nice, too. I didn't feel like I was going to some doctor's basement for treatment, but a real "World Class" facility. – Ken R., Insider Pages
Medical Director Dr. Marilyn Tompkins, ARNP, busies Radiant MedSpa's staff with an array of services that refine skin surfaces. Injectables such as Botox and Sculptra free faces of wrinkles or circles around the eyes that reveal age. IPL photofacials and fractional skin-resurfacing treatments leave skin as brilliant as an Einstein wrapped in reflective tape; the spa's laser systems can also halt hair production in follicles or zap away spider veins. Glycolic or lactic acids reveal youthful skin and fight blemishes during chemical peels, and HCG weight-loss programs bolster weight loss with a combination of booster shots, protein shakes, and vitamins.
