Weight Loss Q & A

What are the available weight loss options?

Port St. Lucie Pain & Medical Institute, home of Bossa Nova Lasers and Cosmetic Medicine offers several weight loss solutions, including:

  • HCG
  • MIC B12
  • Pharmacotherapy


Your weight loss journey begins with a full physical exam and measurements of your height, weight, and body mass index (BMI). From there, your doctor creates a detailed treatment plan to address your specific weight loss goals and any underlying medical issues that make weight loss difficult.

What are HCG treatments?

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone naturally found in your body. HCG is responsible for metabolizing body fat. It’s also present in the body throughout pregnancy at increased levels to boost your immune system and encourage new cell growth.

HCG can help with weight loss by stimulating certain psychological responses that are key to successful weight loss, including:

  • Curbing your appetite
  • Boosting your metabolism
  • Effectively burning excess fat


HCG injections are very effective at forcing your body to burn fat, rather than only losing water weight and muscle mass. You can expect HCG to help you burn up to 3,000 calories a day.

What is MIC B12?

Lipotropic injections (MIC B12) is a treatment that the team of doctors at Port St. Lucie Pain & Medical Institute, home of Bossa Nova Lasers and Cosmetic Medicine combines with a low-calorie diet to trigger rapid weight loss. These injections are made up of naturally-occurring nutrients that speed up your fat-burning potential.

Your doctor may recommend these safe and effective injections once or twice a week as part of your treatment plan. To ensure maximum results, your doctor can also help you map out a nutritious low-calorie diet and effective exercise plan.

What is pharmacotherapy?

If you’re obese and unable to be physically active, your doctor may recommend anti-obesity medications. These medications can help you achieve your weight loss goals by effectively managing your appetite or reducing your body’s absorption of calories.

Your doctor determines if pharmacotherapy is right for you based on your overall health, your current weight, and your risk for obesity-related medical conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes.
