Medical Weight Loss: Lose Weight and Lower Blood Pressure with Prescription Weight Loss Programme.

National Medical Weight Loss Programme

The staff at The Skin to Love Clinic have partnered with the National Medical Weight Loss Programme (NMWLP) to offer medical weight loss support and advice to patients who would like to lose weight, following training and advice from Dr Matt Capehorn, who has many years’ experience in treating obesity.

We have established an NMWLP clinic within our existing clinic.

How big is the problem in England?

In England, almost two-thirds of adults are living with excess weight for their height (BMI greater than 25kg/m2); this puts those people at risk from premature death and associated disease.

A 2019 health survey carried out in England stated that the total number of people overweight and obese was 64.3% of the population, with men being more likely to be in these categories than women (67.2% compared to 61.5%). This trend is rising.

One in eight people are morbidly obese categorised as a BMI of 40 and above.

It is estimated that, following current trends, by 2050 90% of adults in the UK will be overweight or obese.

What the medical weight loss programme offers:

We will help to educate you in basic nutrition and the principles of medical weight loss.

We monitor your prescription weight and blood pressure, and carry out a body mass analysis at each visit and support you to achieve your weight loss goals. For patients with a BMI of 30 and above they may benefit from prescribed medications that can help to reduce the cravings that often cause people to break a diet.

Doctors and nurses can use UK-licensed and FDA-approved medications to assist with medical weight loss.

I Could Use Some Help To Lose Weight

If you are suitable for the treatment, it will help you to:

  • Control your appetite
  • Curb hunger
  • Suppress cravings
  • Reduce portion sizes
  • Release stored fat
  • Lose weight
  • Develop positive habits

Are there side effects?

Some patients will experience short-term side effects including:

  • Nausea
  • Indigestion
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Headache

Losing prescription weight and managing to keep it off has many health benefits which include:

  • Improving mental well-being
  • Reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Reducing the risk of 13 types of cancers
  • Reducing the risk of COVID-19*
  • Reducing the risk of muscular and skeletal disease
  • Reducing the risk of premature death

Is it safe to lose weight this way?

The short answer is: yes, it’s very safe. It has been fully trialled, tested and prescribed successfully on the NHS in the UK and fully FDA approved in the USA. It is proven to reduce your appetite and sugar cravings to help you lose weight. The medical weight loss programme helps you lower your blood pressure with diet and exercise. High blood pressure is a threat to your health, but can be managed with losing weight, diet and exercise.

Do I need to exercise?

Yes! Exercise will be helpful in the long run to get you healthier and aid in losing weight, but it does not mean you need to spend countless hours in the gym!

Physical activity has many more benefits than just burning excess calories – it improves your health on many levels including the release of ‘happy hormones’.

Find an activity you will enjoy. To start, aim to be active at least 5 days a week for 30 minutes each day. Activities can be as simple as brisk walking, cycling, dancing, swimming, doing yoga or Pilates, or simply marching on the spot.

Start slow and aim for 10,000 steps every day, even if this includes marching on the spot at home while watching TV.

Resistance training (bands, weight training) supports muscle mass which will have positive effects on metabolic rate after the desired weight loss. This can be added later on when you are comfortable with the 30-minute activity for 5 days a week.

Prior to attending the clinic, you will complete a health questionnaire to assess how we can support you; when you attend, your initial consultation will take 30 minutes.

Cost of consultation and monthly followup consultation: £25

Supply of medication per month: £250

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

I’ve had the HydraFacia treatment with anti-aging booster recently and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! My skin feels incredibly clean, hydrated, and has a radiant glow. Nikki was fantastic—she meticulously explained each step of the treatment, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The thoughtful touch of a follow-up call post-treatment added a personalised touch that I truly appreciated. Thank you, and I'm definitely looking forward to more sessions!
Thank you Emma. You made me feel comfortable and calmed my nerves. The procedure was smooth and quick and Emma kept me distracted the whole time. Would definitely recommend.

I had 3 moles removed (one on my face, and two on my body) by Emma. She did a wonderful job and they are healing up beautifully. She is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and I was well informed about the process. Not only that but she put my mind at ease fantastically as I was feeling quite nervous. We were able to laugh and chat throughout the appointment and I actually left in a better mood than when I went in! That is definitely Kudos to Emma (and the lovely staff at the front desk who always made me feel so welcome). Thank you so much.
