HCG Diet (Reset Diet)
HCG Diet (Reset diet) is a weight loss program that involves hCG injections, along with a 500-calorie diet free of fat, sugar and starch. Human chorionic gonadotrophine is a natural substance that occurs in women during pregnancy. It’s key job is to make sure that the mother does not feel hungry or feeble as her body provides nourishment for the child growing inside. The use of hCG can provoke intensive and selective fat burning around the hips, thighs and abdomen. People can lose up to 1 point of fat per day.
The program will begin with painless, daily mini injections of hCG. We will teach you how to administer the injection to yourself. The duration of the treatment will depend on how much weight you’d like to lose. Patients who need to lose 15 pounds or less require 23 daily injections. You should never exceed 36 injections.
Our patients see significant success, losing an average of 4 to 7 pounds a week. The most valuable aspect of our HCG weight loss regiment at Island Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center is the support system we provide. You can rest assured that you will not be doing this on your own.
Laser Vein Treatment
Laser Vein Treatment is typically used for the treatment of spider veins- those pesky clusters of purple, red and blue veins that can be found on your legs, feet and elsewhere on your body. Used in conjunction with sclerotherapy, laser vein treatment involves directing a light beam on the veins to seal them off and successfully dissolve them. The wavelength of the laser is targeted to the pigment in the blood, so it will not damage any surrounding tissue.
The procedure lasts around 20 minutes, and is performed right in the office. It typically takes between four and six weeks for the veins to completely disappear following the treatment. Depending on the size and number of veins in the treatment area, it may take between two and 6 sessions to achieve optimal results.
