Weight Loss

Being overweight or obese not only takes a toll on your self-esteem, but it significantly increases your risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic conditions. At Argento Wellness & Aesthetics in Glendale, Arizona, board-certified family physician Maria Berlari MD, FAAFP, and her expert team offer medical weight loss to get and keep you healthy. Dr. Berlari uses the Clean Start Weight Loss system program to help you achieve your goals. She also provides supplements with multiple energy shots from vitamin B12, vitamin B1, and vitamin B5 to full vitamin B complex, carnitine, and MIC. These shots are vitamins and amino acids that will give you extra energy during your weight loss process, as well as metabolize unwanted fat. These boosters can be given as much as twice a week when needed. Schedule a weight loss consultation with Argento Wellness & Aesthetics over the phone or online today.

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss at Argento Wellness & Aesthetics uses lifestyle changes and medical intervention to help you reach your goal weight and achieve better health. Dr. Berlari and her team personalize each weight loss treatment to match your food preferences and lifestyle.

They offer human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and Clean Start Weight Loss programs to accelerate weight loss with calorie restriction and healthy food choices.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

Some of the many benefits of medical weight loss include:

  • More energy
  • Less body fat
  • Medical supervision
  • HCG injections
  • Energy shots
  • Motivational support
  • Improved self-confidence
  • A lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer
  • A lower risk of gaining the weight back
  • A better overall quality of life

Sometimes having a structured weight loss plan in place and encouragement along the way is all you need to effectively get excess weight off and keep it off for a lifetime. Dr. Berlari also treats medical conditions that can hinder weight loss.

What should I expect during medical weight loss?

During your first medical weight loss appointment at Argento Wellness & Aesthetics, Dr. Berlari and her team review your medical history, weigh you, and check your vital signs.

They complete a comprehensive physical examination and order blood tests to screen for medical conditions that require treatment.

Dr. Berlari then develops a custom weight loss meal plan based on your size, goal weight, and food preferences. She creates an exercise plan for you and might recommend meal replacements or other dietary supplements.

Dr. Belari offers HCG diet injections and energy shots containing vitamin B12, carnitine, and B complex vitamins to boost energy levels, fat metabolism, and liver detoxification.

You may require treatment for nutritional deficiencies, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or hormone imbalance to keep you healthy and reduce chronic disease risks during weight loss. Dr. Berlari makes changes to your treatment plan whenever necessary.

How long does medical weight loss take?

Depending on your initial body weight, you might lose 2-5 pounds weekly with medical weight loss at Argento Wellness & Aesthetics. The length of time treatment takes is based on your goal weight and how strictly you adhere to your weight loss program.
