BE SLIM at Face Medical

Losing weight can be difficult, particularly if you’ve struggled for years to shift the pounds to no avail. For some, sticking to a strict routine of diet and exercise is impossible or impractical given their lifestyle choices. Particularly for those with weight-related problems or who are obese, the long process and extra effort required for losing weight can be incredibly demoralising. Fortunately, at Face Medical Clinic, we offer an alternative for those looking to shift excess weight. Our BE SLIM treatment, an at-home weight-loss solution that utilises injectable prescription medicine Saxenda®, can help those with a BMI of 27 or greater to regain control of their body.

Consultation

All patients considering BE SLIM treatment are required to attend a thorough consultation with Face Medical’s expert aesthetic team. This will allow both patient and practitioner to discuss the benefits and risks of treatment and ensure that it is the best option for aiding their weight-loss journey. As Saxenda® is injected at home, it is very important that patients have a full understanding of how to safely administer the treatment to its full benefit, and should take advantage of having a member of our team on hand to teach them how to do so.

The Procedure

After consultation, should patients decide to move forward with BE SLIM treatment, they will need to administer Saxenda® once daily. The medicine comes in a prefilled pen, providing simplicity for those who may not be used to self-injecting. Saxenda® contains an ingredient called liraglutide, which works by activating areas of the brain that regulate the appetite, leaving the patient feeling less hungry. This usually leads to a lower calorie intake, resulting in a sustainable weight loss. To administer the treatment, patients remove the cap, select the correct dosage, and insert the needle into the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm, as instructed, for six seconds to ensure the entire dose is injected. The dosage should be increased over a four-week period. This can be done at any time of day. Saxenda® is entirely safe for patients, and has a high success rate for not only losing weight, but keeping it off.

Aftercare

BE SLIM treatment does carry the risk of adverse side effects, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and constipation. This should subside as your body adjusts to the medication. Stomach pain, heartburn, fatigue, trouble sleeping, dizziness, and hypoglycaemia are also common. Patients should take care to administer the injection as guided, but remember Face Medical Clinic will always be on hand to help with any concerns. Patients should follow a reduced-calorie meal plan and increase physical activity in order to see the full benefit of treatment. Needles should be disposed of safely and correctly, in a sharps container or a Safe Needle Disposal site.
