The holiday season is arguably the best time of the year. You get to spend more time with loved ones, do fun activities, and attend social gatherings.
However, you may also find yourself binge-eating decadent desserts and putting off exercise. As a result, you might welcome the new year with feelings of lethargy and weight gain.
Fortunately, it’s possible to regain your healthy weight. Aside from healthy eating habits and regular exercise, you can also get help from experienced providers in Blue Springs and Kansas City, MO, such as Luminare Wellness and Aesthetics.

Weight Loss Management at Luminare
Losing weight can be pretty challenging.
For many who are struggling with weight loss, following a diet and exercise program sometimes isn’t enough. Weight loss can also be affected by age, lifestyle, and body chemistry, among other factors.
To address this, some resort to weight loss management, a program that was designed to help individuals lose extra pounds when conventional methods just aren’t cutting it.
Our weight loss management program here at Luminare has the following components:
- Semaglutide (Ozempic®);
- Mega Burn.
Let’s take a look at how each one works.
Used together with proper diet and exercise, phentermine is an oral medication that helps treat obesity by decreasing your appetite.
It’s especially ideal for obese individuals who are at risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
Phentermine is for short-term use, so your treatment provider may occasionally modify your dose. Patients are normally advised to take it one or two hours after breakfast.
It’s important to follow the prescribed dosage as going over that may not make it as effective as a weight loss treatment and may even cause serious, life-threatening side effects.
Meanwhile, Semaglutide injections are intended for overweight or obese patients who also typically have at least one weight-related medical condition, such as high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes, or high blood pressure.
As a weight loss treatment, it works by significantly reducing your appetite. When you’re on Semaglutide, you’ll feel fuller for longer and eventually reduce your food intake as a result.
Semaglutide injections significantly reduce weight by 15-20% or about 50 pounds for a 250-pound person! Thus, it’s considered almost as effective as bariatric surgery. It also helps prevent and manage obesity-related diseases such as osteoarthritis, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Another weight loss treatment option available at Luminare is MegaBurn. Containing methionine, inositol, choline, plus B-complex vitamins, along with L-carnitine and Vitamin C, these injections can help boost weight loss through:
- Suppressing appetite
- Decreasing the production of fat cells
- Reducing storage fat
- Increasing energy
- Helping muscles recover quicker after workouts
Ideal patients for Mega Burn injections are those who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater or equal to 40. However, unlike with the other two weight loss options, this option is best for patients without any comorbidities.
Still, the best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for any of the options for Luminare’s Weight Loss Management is by calling or scheduling an appointment at our Blue Springs and Kansas City, MO offices.
