Treatment Explained

The medications we use at our clinic can be categorised according to their action as:

  • Anti-obesity drugs acting on the gastro-intestinal tract
  • Medication suppressing the appetite

Please note that anti-obesity medication may have side effects and can only be prescribed by a fully qualified doctor with experience in managing obese and overweight people.

Depending on your lifestyle and diet we may also need to recommend food supplements such as INNO-CAPS Reducer by INNOSEARCH. The INNO-CAPS by INNOSEARCH are food supplements which act at a nutritional level and can compliment aesthetic surgical and non-surgical treatments as they intervene in aging process and absorption of fat.

  • INNO-CAPS Reducer – food supplement based on Phosphatidilcholine and L-Carnitine which play an important role in fat transfer and metabolism.
  • INNO-CAPS Anti-aging – food supplement based on unsaturated omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. Essential fatty acids can reduce inflammation and may help lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, poor circulation, arthritis, dry skin and premature aging. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioural function.

Food supplements must not be used to replace a healthy and balanced diet.

All consultations take place at the London Slimming and Cosmetic Centre which is a full member of the Obesity Management Association.
