Weight Loss Plans for Women & Men

Thinique Medical Weight Loss is a non-surgical, medically supervised, weight loss clinic that offers a three phase–acute, maintenance, and support–weight management program utilizing appetite suppressants (both prescription and non-prescription), vitamin injections, and a high protein/low carbohydrate proprietary diet. We emphasize exercise and behavior modification for effective, long term weight loss.

Thinique helps you understand the critical question of how and why you may have gained weight, and then clearly lays out a plan to help you lose weight long term. You will be given a low carb, high protein diet and regimen, that will help shed pounds week after week. Many Thinique patients lose up to 15-20 pounds the first month* and up to 2-5 pounds per week thereafter.

The First Step – Body Composition Analysis

A Body Composition Analysis helps our medical providers assess a patient’s health risk based upon the percentage of body fat in relation to lean body mass and create a weight loss plan for your individual needs.

By assisting our patients with diet, lifestyle, and behavior modification support, we can help you Take The First Step toward achieving your personal weight loss goals.


Low Testosterone Therapy for Men

Symptoms of Low-T

Testosterone therapy is a Thinique™ service for men who suffer from low testosterone (“Low-T”) issues that may be impacting their lives in various ways.

Low-T often goes undiagnosed and untreated because the symptoms of Low-T are similar to those caused by other medical conditions. Among men with Low-T, only half to two-thirds report symptoms. A simple blood test can determine if symptoms such as decreased energy levels, sleep problems, increased body fat, and depression are a result of low testosterone.

Low-T Injection Therapy

Low-T is a treatable condition. Treatment for Low-T consists of raising testosterone to healthy levels using weekly injections. It is possible to see symptoms begin to diminish after just one to three visits.

Hormone replacement therapy gives the body more testosterone to replace what is lost. This therapy can alleviate many symptoms of low testosterone, and the benefits may include:

  1. Increased Energy
  2. Increased Stamina For Exercise
  3. Increased Muscle Tone
  4. Improved Sex Drive
  5. Can increase production of red blood cells
  6. Improved Sleep
  7. Improved Mood
  8. Decreased Body Fat
  9. Improved and maintained sense of well being
  10. Decreased irritability
