A FDA approved prescription medicine that, when used correctly alongside a healthy low calorie meal plan and increased physical activity, is guaranteed to aid weight loss and to help shift that unwanted excess weight by working as an appetite suppressant, whilst also proven to improve many indicators of cardiovascular risk.
IS THE SKINNY SHOT SAFE?
The medication has been used for some time in several countries 'off label' to effectively control and treat weight loss. The product has passed long and rigorous clinical trials for safety and has recently become the only approved injectable prescription medicine available in the UK for weight-loss purposes.
Unlike surgical procedures such as liposuction, The Skinny Shot is virtually painless, requires no post-operative recovery time, requires no heavy bandages or girdles, and no anaesthesia is necessary. While many surgical procedures require one to two weeks of recovery, patients undergoing The Skinny Shot have no interruptions to their daily life. The results obtained with The Skinny Shot do vary from patient to patient but can be very dramatic. After completing a series of treatments, generally over a 3-6 week period of time, clients can notice improvement in skin quality, less dimpling of the skin & definite weight reduction.
HOW DOES SKINNY SHOT WORK?
The medication converts the fat stores within your body into energy, resulting in weight-loss. It also steadies and maintains blood glucose levels so that your appetite is suppressed, but your body does not go into starvation mode. We at Define Beauty recommend it alongside a healthy low-calorie diet and you must remain well hydrated. Your metabolism will remain maintained so that no rapid weight gain will occur once you have finished using the Skinny Shot. Speak to us about recommended diet plans as well.
HOW IS THE SKINNY SHOT ADMINISTERED?
A simple & painless daily tiny injection using a very easy to use dose adjusted pen that is pre-filled with the medication. All you must do is set the dial to the correct dosage and inject under the skin of the abdomen. You must follow the administration, dosing and titration instructions provided to you by our medical practitioners to minimise the risk of side effects and safely achieve your desired weight-loss goals. You will also receive weekly follow-up review calls via telephone and three weekly review appointments with your named medical practitioner to (complimentary at no further cost) to monitor and record your weight, blood pressure, dose adjustments and blood glucose levels. Your medication will last 3-4 weeks dependent on your individual dosage plan.
