Tattoo Removal

Tattoo Removal with Laser

Tattoo Removal is a new service offered at Skinny Me. Please call us at 803-980-8446 or stop by 850 Cherry Road, Rock Hill for more information.  For a while, we have assumed that once tattooed that’s it – the image or words are there for life. Then came tattoo cover-ups, allowing ink that people had grown tired of or grown out of to be covered up with a new design by experienced, talented artists.

Now at Skinny Me, our physicians have been trained in tattoo removal.  This advanced laser removes tattoos, whether recent, old, blue, green or multi-colored.

tattoo removal atlanta gaWhile the chosen design of a tattoo is often enough to incite later regret, getting a tattoo in the first place comes with health risks.  Such as allergic reactions. Risks also occur when going an unsafe route to removing tattoos.  This is done by using dermabrasion methods to “sand down” the skin. This can cause a lot of pain and scarring.

A recent survey revealed that nearly one-third of people experience tattoo-regret. Currently, laser treatments are the most common and preferred tattoo removal method. Laser tattoo removal emits a focused beam of laser light. It passes through the skin’s outer layer before being absorbed by the tattoo ink.  Then breaks the pigment into smaller particles that are eventually removed by the body’s natural healing processes. With today’s technology, tattoo removal responds positively to lasers.

At Skinny Me, we have the highly-advanced laser that uses short bursts of energy for the safe removal of deep tattoos. This includes the removal of multicolored, blue, green, and dark ink in fewer treatments. Multi-colored, blue-green and dark tattoos tend to be the most difficult to eliminate as their pigments are usually more concentrated. They are usually placed deeper within the skin. With patience, persistence, and an experienced laser physician, they may be able to remove dark, stubborn tattoos in fewer treatments without damaging surrounding skin.

While your treatment at Skinny Me depends on many factors.  Most tattoos require at least three to four treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, for tattoo removal.

Please contact Skinny Me to speak to the laser specialist to best determine which type of advanced laser technology will best fit your tattoo removal process.  Also, check out our web page for details on how the laser can remove tattoos.

HCG-Diet-Work?

What are some of the hCG diet concerns?

Screen Shot 2018-07-14 at 5.40.32 AMWhat are some of the hCG diet concerns that many people may ponder before starting the hCG diet? Many patients question whether or not the hCG diet really works.  Well, I am here to tell you it does work if you follow the Skinny Me program correctly.

One of the hCG diet concerns at Skinny Me is that we have many people who call and ask, “Wouldn’t I lose the same amount of weight if I were eating 500 calories, with or without the hCG?” Initially, this is true, but if you do the hCG diet without the hCG, about 10 days into your journey you’ll notice that you do not lose as much weight. This is because your body has gone into starvation mode. The hCG helps your body burn fat and not muscle.   also prevent your body from going into starvation mode. Not only will you lose weight on the drops, you’ll feel much better and be healthier than doing the diet without the drops.

Another one of the hCG diet concerns we get asked at Skinny Me is “Will I gain the weight back?”  The Skinny Me hCG diet is designed to help you succeed, but you have to follow the protocol. Like all diets, if you abandon your healthy habits, you will gain the weight back.  The hCG diet is broken into three phases to make maintaining easier to understand. The last 3 weeks or phase 3 of the Skinny is dedicated to teaching you the healthy habits required to maintain your weight loss.  Our Skinny Me nutritionist will sit down with you and explain the importance of maintaining for the next 3 weeks.  We will also provide you all the necessary meal plans and lists to be successful.  All you have to do is listen and follow the program that will be provided to you. If you complete phase 3 and implement the things like calorie counting, and exercise that you started, you can maintain your weight loss.

Many potential patients hCG diet concerns relies on the clear fact that they do not even know what the hCG diet really is all about.  One of the great things about Skinny Me’s hCG program is before you schedule we provide you in detail how the hCG diet works.  Overall, the hCG diet is a jump start into a healthier lifestyle. It’s that simple.  hCG helps you lose enough weight to start feeling comfortable with your body again. When you are done with the hCG Diet, you complete the maintenance phase, which can also be referred to as phase 3.  During this phase, you start exercising and learning to track your calories and carbohydrates. This is the next step toward a better lifestyle. The maintenance phase is meant to teach you how to be healthy, and it is critical to success on the hCG diet. After this phase is complete, you are ready to dive head in to your new, healthy lifestyle. You now know how to track calories, choose healthier food options, and exercise. Moving forward, you have a fresh start with life.  One thing that we try to teach our Skinny Me patients is that when you have weight to lose, especially when you’ve tried all different kinds of programs, it’s hard to stay motivated long enough to lose as much as you need to. This is due to a couple reasons: 1) You aren’t seeing results despite your hard work. 2) Your body hasn’t had the opportunity to detox from the junk you used to eat so when you finish your diet, you return to junk. For a lot of our clients, they have tried a myriad of programs but hCG is the only thing that works for them. We believe this is because you see results more quickly than you would with other programs, and the hCG diet gives you the opportunity to detox from the junk that would normally make maintaining very difficult.

The bottom line is this: When the program is followed correctly, you can lose weight with Skinny Me’s hCG diet program. hCG diet controversy aside, we have helped some clients lose more than 100 pounds. After you lose weight, we won’t abandon you! We are here to guide your entire program start to finish. Our hCG diet nutritionists are here to make sure that each step of your hCG diet is a success, and they are here to provide the support you need to jump start yourself into a healthier lifestyle! Call us today to get started, 803-980-8446 or stop in by our Charlotte location.  Our address is 850 Cherry Road Rock Hill, SC 29732 (minutes from Charlotte).  At Skinny Me, we are here to help you become a healthier you!

Ketogenic Diet Benefits

Ketogenic diet benefits improves your health. According to studies, “two-thirds of the American population is overweight or obese. More than half of all Americans struggle with chronic illness. 1 in 5 deaths in the U.S. is obesity-related. 1 in 4 deaths is related to heart disease. Saturated dietary fats and cholesterol are not to blame for these statistics.”

Skinny Me helps patients address these issues. It also can provide weight loss benefits with the Ketogenic diet.  It is important to eat a diet that allows your body to burn fat. As its primary fuel rather than sugars.  Also, to become an efficient fat burner, you actually have to eat fat.  This is considered one of the ketogenic diet benefits to some patients.   Skinny Me is one of the few weight loss clinics in the area that provides an education on how the correct way to diet with an approved ketogenic plan.  Some of the most important ketogenic diet benefits are:

Weight loss

By rebalancing your body’s chemistry, weight loss becomes nearly effortless. The ketogenic diet can double the weight lost compared to a low-fat diet, if done correctly.  Call today 803-980-8446 for some of the weight loss results we have seen.

 

 

Reduced inflammation

When burned for fuel, dietary fat releases far fewer reactive oxygen. Ketones are also very effective histone deacetylase inhibitors. That can effectively reduce inflammatory responses.  Reducing your inflammation is just one of the benefits of ketogenic diet at Skinny Me.

Reduced cancer risk

It is possible that another one of the benefits of ketogenic diet is reducing the chance of cancer.  While all cells (including cancer cells) can use glucose for fuel.  Cancer cells lack the metabolic flexibility to use ketones. While regular cells thrive on these fats.  Your body enters a state of nutritional ketosis. That is when the cancer cells are more susceptible to being removed by your body through a process called autophagy.  This process would be taught to you at Skinny Me. You can check out the study done on how the ketogenic diet reducing the risk of cancer at https://diyhealthacademy.com/what-a-ketogenic-diet-did-to-mice/.

Increased muscle mass

Another one of the ketogenic diet benefits at Skinny Me is increasing your muscle mass.  Ketones spare branched-chain amino acids.  This is what helps promote muscle mass. There are ways that patients can lose muscle mass if they do not follow the ketogenic program correctly.

Lowered insulin levels

Keeping your insulin level low helps prevent insulin resistance.  Also, Type 2 diabetes and related diseases. If diabetics eat a low-carb ketogenic diet they can reduce their dependency on diabetes medication. Lowering insulin resistance will also reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s. Recent research strengthens the link between insulin resistance and dementia. Even further, particularly among those with existing heart disease.

Mental clarity

One of the first things people really notice once they start burning fat for fuel is that they do not have “brain fog”. They can suddenly think very clearer.  Ketones are a preferred fuel for your brain; hence, the improved mental clarity.

Increased longevity

One of the reasons you can survive a long time without food is due to the process of ketosis. It spares protein breakdown. A fairly consistent effect seen in people on a ketogenic diet is that blood levels of leucine and other important structural proteins go up.

It is important to follow an approved program such as Skinny Me. This would allow you to get all the ketogenic diet benefits.  Call us today at 803-980-8446. Or stop by our nearest Charlotte, NC location.  We are located at 850 Cherry Road Rock Hill, SC 29732.  You can learn all the benefits of ketogenic diet, these are just a few! Skinny Me’s ketogenic program will provide you all the necessary information to be successful and lose the most weight you can.

HCG-Diet

The hCG Diet Benefits at Skinny Me

What is the Long Term Effectiveness of the HCG Diet?

The hCG diet is one of the few diets that can work both in the short term and the long term, but to have lasting results with your weight loss it will take a commitment to stay healthy.

One of the biggest failures of long term success with any diet is whether or not it changes your eating habits, as your eating habits are what determine the amount of calories you consume and the types of foods that you crave.

The hCG diet can actually change your eating habits and help reduce your cravings for junk food. Most patients on the diet find that they no longer crave the same foods that they used to crave after just one round of hCG. One of the most important things to do in order to change bad eating habits, is to reduce your portion sizes, eat lower fat foods, and drink more water.

These are all requirements of the hCG diet, and although the diet is one of the most structured out there, it is highly effective at helping clients change their behavior and habits that contribute to weight gain. Our hCG diet is designed to help your body reset itself and reduce your cravings for food.

Eating Larger Portions of Water and Fibre Rich Foods can Help you Change your Eating Habits
Our nutritionists advise that the best ways to change your eating habits is to limit your consumption of calorie dense foods like pizza, pasta, and bread and increase your quantities of fiber rich foods like broccoli, kale, fruits and non-starchy vegetables. By increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables you can control your cravings for food much more easily because the water content and fiber content of these foods will fill you up faster.

The hCG diet requires you to eat foods that are rich in both fiber and water content for a period of three to six weeks. During this period of time, many report changes in their food cravings. Although the first week of the diet can be challenging for some, once this week has passed the rest of the diet is usually much easier, and many find that they are able to stick to the protocol. As a result, our craving for calorie dense foods will decrease less and less.

The hCG Diet Limits your Consumption of Sugar Drinks
Another important aspect of the diet is that it limits the type of drinks that you can consume. This is important for helping you normalize your weight and transition into a healthier lifestyle. In order to avoid weight gain, you have to avoid consuming drinks with sugar and high fructose corn syrup, as they are a source of “empty calories” that can easily increase your weight and cause a wide range of metabolic issues. People who consume sugar drinks are much more likely to be obese and struggle with weight loss.  The hCG diet requires clients to completely avoid consuming sugar drinks during its entire duration, which will help you avoid them once the diet has been completed.
The hCG Diet is one of the Easiest Ways to Transition into a Healthier Lifestyle
There are hundreds of diets now available and it can be confusing to make a decision on just one. However, the long term effectiveness of the hCG diet is proven and well known, and most participants have had success with it. You will find that following the protocol of the diet is very easy once you get familiar with it. Because it is limited to a short period of time (3 to 6 weeks) it has a dramatic and positive effect on your eating habits.

If you have any questions at all about the hCG diet and how it can help you lose weight and change your eating habits for the better, call Skinny Me for more information about it.

HCG

hCG Hormone Weight Loss

hCG hormone weight loss is available at Skinny Me. Everyone deserves to be healthy and happy.  Being overweight is a major health problem and extends beyond appearances. With Skinny Me’s hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone) weight loss program women lose 20-35 pounds in 42 days and men lose 30-50 pounds in 42 days.  Our hCG  hormone weight loss program is done with either sublingual tablets or injections.  This is not a fad diet… this is a medically supervised program with a prescribed hormone therapy which induces weight loss when followed correctly.

hCG is an natural hormone in a pregnant woman’s body of about 200 thousand units daily.  It provides hormonal development of the growing fetus and ensures adequate nutrition to the fetus if the mother is nutritionally deprived or just nauseated.  Have you ever heard the old saying” baby is going to get what it needs from the momma”?  That is exactly what this hormone does.  Because of the decreased fat intake while on hCG it will trigger your body to flood its own reserve fat for “the baby” which obviously you don’t have.While on this hormonal therapy it does not cause nausea, lactation, or any symptoms associated with pregnancy.  Just imagine having 10 children- this hormone will be in a woman’s body for her entire adult life.  So is it safe?  Absolutely!

Our team of Practitioners are all trained in the latest hCG research.  We are hCG experts.  The entire staff here at Skinny Me have all experienced weight loss challenges ourselves.  We all have our own success stories to share with our patients.  We support, hug, cheer, and congratulate everyone’s own success story.  We can’t help but to develop a personal relationship with all who walk through our door.  After all, the team at Skinny Me can empathize with the frustrations we feel of previous failed weight loss attempts.  The atmosphere is contagious.  We find our new patients become motivated by established patients while sitting in the waiting room! They all are so eager to brag about their journey at Skinny Me!

Call today to schedule your hCG program at Skinny Me 803-980-8446 or stop by 850 Cherry Road, Rock Hill SC 29732 to either ask questions or get started!

testosterone

Low Testosterone

Low Testosterone is common is both men and women.  Skinny Me is known as the Rock Hill’s Low T Clinic of the South. Testosterone is vital to the health and well-being of BOTH men and women. In men, it is mainly produced by the testicles and in smaller quantities by the adrenal glands. In women, testosterone is produced in both the ovaries and the adrenal glands. Testosterone contributes to muscle mass, strength and endurance.  Also, by decreased fat, increased exercise tolerance, enhancement of the sense of well-being and psychological health. Testosterone protects against cardiovascular disease and reduces blood sugar. It leads to improved lean muscle mass, increased bone density, and decrease in cholesterol.  It also leads to improved skin tone, improved healing capacity, and increased libido and sexual performance. It enhances the quality of life for both men and women by decreasing the health issues caused by deficiencies.  Many physicians have an “old school mentality.” They would only treat patients based on lab results.  Many do not receive the treatment they need for optimal health with that though.   Cells that require estrogen use testosterone to manufacture estrogen inside the cell by a chemical conversion that uses an enzyme called Aromatase. Testosterone is present and extremely important in both women and men, making adequate tissue levels very important for health in both sexes.

Some of the common symptoms of low testosterone may include low sex drive, and mood changes.  Also, insomnia, fatigue, loss of muscle mass and strength, bone loss, increased hair loss, and weight gain.

Here are only some ways our Skinny Me- Rock Hill’s Low T Clinic can help with your low testosterone:

Patches or creams are a great way to start the supplementation. Creams offer the greatest flexibility for dosing. This is a great method of delivery for those just beginning Hormone Replacement Therapy.  Skinny Me offers more information on Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for both men and women.

Injections are usually given every 7-10 days for men and every 2 weeks in women. These can be self-administered for your convenience, or given at our office if you prefer. These injections can be given intra-muscularly, or with smaller needles, just beneath the skin (subcutaneously). Some people may want an injection periodically to extend or boost the testosterone level they receive from pellets.  Some patients prefer this as their primary means of receiving the supplementation.

Please call our office; Skinny Me for more information 803-980-8446.  You could also stop by at 850 Cherry Road, Rock Hill SC 29732- Monday- Friday 9am-5pm.

 

Benefits of Botox

Benefits of Botox

Skinny Me offers several benefits of Botox.  A reason you may want to consider Botox? Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows remain… even when your muscles aren’t contracting. The moderate to severe frown lines between your brows that form are often referred to as your 1’s and may make you look angry and unapproachable.

Our most popular aesthetic procedure is Botox not only because of the benefits of Botox but Skinny Me’s prices are affordable.  At Skinny Me, Botox is considered a preventative treatment which can reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles and a great benefit of Botox is to help them stop occurring in the first place.  The best time known to start using Botox is before you start noticing the lines when you frown, squint or smile.  Benefits of Botox are a smoother, more youthful appearance that erases from your complexion.  Some Skinny Me patients say that after getting Botox treatments were surprised to find that they had fewer to no migraine headaches. This could be beneficial to those who suffer from chronic headaches.  Skinny Me’s benefits of Botox is that is safe, but it is needs to be administered by a registered professional.  At Skinny Me, we have a medical doctor or an RN who provides great benefits of Botox. One of the wonderful benefits of Botox is that it is not permanent.  Botox usually only lasts 6 months and may needed to be repeated twice a year to continue with the benefits of Botox.  With that being said, if you don’t like the way you look with Botox or you decide it’s not right for you; you can easily stop having treatments. There’s no long-term commitment (unless you want one!). However, many people who get Botox are so pleased with the benefits of Botox that they continue having treatments for years.

It is important to understand that you must be over the age of 18 to get the Botox and start benefiting from the benefits of Botox. To learn more about Botox please check out Our Botox Page.

When you are ready to experience the benefits of Botox, please call us at 803-980-8446 or stop by 850 Cherry Road Rock Hill, SC 29732 to schedule your Botox appointment.

Stretch Marks Using PRP and Micro-Needling

 

Skinny Me now has the modern effective technology to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.  This procedure is to help both men and women. Skinny Me is equipped to provide the latest cutting edge aesthetic solutions.  This includes the PRP treatment using micro-needling.  This procedure at Skinny Me is minimally invasive and effective. Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, muscle building and surgical implants are common causes of stretch marks. One of the innovative new non-surgical Skinny Me treatments for stretch marks is the platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy and micro-needling. Skinny Me uses PRP, which uses a portion of the patients own blood to stimulate collagen growth and replace volume. It can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers to enhance the results of the procedure. The platelets induce massive fibroblasts.  This is where the are cells found in skin that act as soldiers in the battle against damaged skin tissue to lessen the appearance of stretch marks. Platelets release growth factors that work to eliminate necrotic tissue and boost cell regeneration. Growth factors (bioactive proteins) attract macrophages, which are large white blood cells that eat up cellular debris and produce stem cells for tissue repair and ultimately stretch mark repair. Patients looking to improve stretch marks benefit from the tissue regeneration that PRP offers at Skinny Me.

You will meet with a certified medical professional at Skinny Me prior to your PRP and micro-needling procedure to discuss the treatment. Most patients see a noticeable difference in just one treatment. However, 5-6 treatments may be necessary. It is important to understand that every patient and every stretch mark is different. The treatment and the amount of treatments per person may vary. With each treatment, the intensity of the stretch marks decreases.  The skin will become smoother too. Unlike most procedures, micro-needling with PRP offers a way of both restoring shape.  They improve tone and texture. It also rejuvenates new and younger tissue. Especially with reducing the appearance of stretch marks!

For more information on stretch marks using PRP please check out http://www.skinnymeweightloss.com/aesthetics-2/micro-needling-with-prp/ or call 803-980-8446 Monday-Friday 9 am-5 pm or stop by our location at 850 Cherry Road, South Carolina 29732 to learn more about reducing the appearance of your stretch marks.
