Weight Management Q & A

What is weight management?

Weight management includes services that help you achieve a healthy body mass index (BMI) to support your overall health.

Being overweight or obese can put you at a higher risk for serious health complications, including heart disease, stroke, and arthritis. You may also feel self-conscious about your appearance or frustrated by how clothes fit because of excess weight.

The weight management services available at Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa focus on identifying underlying issues that may stand in the way of successful weight loss. They provide medical resources and guidance that help you lose weight safely and efficiently, so you can look and feel your best.

The team also works closely to ensure you can maintain a healthy weight in the long term.

When should I consider weight management?

As women age, they can find it difficult to maintain their weight, even with a healthy diet and active lifestyle. This may be due to an underlying hormone imbalance that occurs with aging and the transition to menopause, the end of your child-bearing years when your periods stop for good.

You should schedule a weight management consultation at Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa if you struggle to lose excess weight on your own with diet and exercise.

The team can also help you achieve your weight loss goals if you feel overwhelmed by the choices in diet plans and exercise programs.

What is involved in weight management?

Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa offers several education and support strategies to help you achieve healthy body weight. These strategies include:


Phentermine is a prescription medication that supports weight loss by suppressing your appetite and helping you feel full for a longer time after meals.

B12 injections

Injections of vitamin B12 can boost your metabolism and energy levels, so you can burn calories more efficiently.

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)

HCG is a pregnancy hormone that a placenta produces during pregnancy. Injections of the hormone can suppress hunger and support weight loss.

In conjunction with hCG injections, you also follow a lower-calorie diet to shed excess fat quickly.

Hormone replacement

To address hormone imbalances that affect your ability to lose weight, Glow Anti-Aging Center and Medical Spa offer bioidentical hormone therapy. Bioidentical hormones are structurally similar to the hormones your body makes naturally.

Taking supplemental hormones rebalances your levels and can make it easier for you to lose weight with a healthy lifestyle.
