How we gain weight?
Generally we associate weight gain to be a result of an imbalance between the amount of calories we eat and the calories we actually end up using. Not being able burn off all the calories we consume simply become the extra pounds we all frustrate over. However there are certain predispositions besides unbalanced nutrition and exercise that cause people to gain weight more so than others. A family history of obesity, hormonal disorders, sedentary lifestyle and just poor eating habits all add up to a higher tendency for weight gain. Additionally everyday circumstances, such as sudden changes in lifestyle, onset of stress and the progression of age all cause further difficulty when trying to fit proper dieting regimens into our day.
Why traditional way is not effective?
Continuous cycles of weight loss and weight gain, also known as the yo-yo effect, impose great risks for our bodies.

How we can help you?
When approaching proper weight loss, it is important to understand what our individual bodies are made of and how they function. At Dr. Kristy Clinic, every patient is given a free Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis to determine body type and composition. This helps to determine the most effective regimen for each patient since our bodies react better to certain treatments more than others. Factors that predispose patients to greater weight gain can also be targeted and resolved. The analysis can further indicate the specific areas of the body lacking lean muscle mass or carrying too much fat tissue to ensure an overall slimming result.

Lipo Dissolve Injection
LipoDissolve is a clinically proven, non-surgical fat removal treatment that can permanently dissolve unwanted fat and cellulite. The process consists of a series of micro-injections that work to dissolve fat deposits in the face and body through a combination of substances that are naturally produced within the human body. The precision of the injections stems from the ability to provide these metabolic substances without a stimulus from the body, allowing individuals to target and reduce personal trouble spots en route for that perfect silhouette.
How does lipodissolve work?
Phosphatidylcholine or PC is a common nutritional supplement that makes up 70% of human cell walls. Deoxycholate or DC is a type of bile acid found in the gall bladder that accelerates the breakdown of fat. The combination of PC and DC produces a synergistic effect that dissolves the walls of fat cells where injected. Following injection, fat cells start to gradually loosen, liquefy and soon burst, releasing dissolvent enzymes. The debris of dissolved fat cells then is naturally eliminated through the white blood cells of the immune system and later excreted.
After a phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate, or PCDC, is administered to the targeted areas, the fat cells absorb the PCDC, become slightly inflamed, and then harden.
Within a few weeks the fat cells break down or are "melted" and are then expelled naturally through the body's immune system; which later excreted in the urine and the stool.
CAN I DO IT?
Generally all parts of the body that carry unwanted fat deposits can be treated with LipoDissolve. The diagram below shows the most common areas that can be treated.
F: Double Chin / Jowls / Neck
A: Cheeks and Mid-Face Fat
A: Lower Eye fat pads deposits

C,D: Inner & Outer Thighs
Upper Thighs (Saddlebags)
I: Lower Buttocks (Banana Rolls)
E: Knees and Legs
H: Fat deposits of the Back
G: Upper Back & Bra Strap
K: Upper / Lower / Back of the Arms
Male Specific Cosmetic Zones
L: Male Chest
Male Pelvic Area*
Pain is easily managed during and after the procedure. There is minimal bleeding and bruising with no sutures needed
Lipodissolve has a relatively short recovery period, allowing a rapid return to work and to normal activities. No hospital stay is required.
PCDC has been used in medical applications since the 1950’s; it has been used cosmetically since the late 1980's to treat isolated fatty deposits on the face and body. And to date, over 50,000 treatments have been performed with no serious side effects ever being reported.
Lipodissolve will have dissolved fat permanently in the treated areas; however if an individual starts to gain weight, the fat cells located in the non-treated areas will naturally get larger, altering appearance.

Bilateral Flanks - Love Handles
Central Abdomen - Left Flank

Loose Skin Tightening
Skin tightening treatments are a noninvasive alternative for repairing skin laxity and improving skin condition. This rejuvenating procedure can tighten skin and reduce the appearance of excess fat and wrinkles without damaging the epidermis or upper layer of the skin.
CAN I DO IT?
Patients suffering from residual skin laxity following an operative procedure or loose skin around the face, neck, arms and abdomen are all eligible for treatment. RF procedures are safe for all skin tones.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The procedure uses radiofrequency waves or RF waves to heat the deep layers of the skin. The heating of the dermis layer helps promote the growth of new collagen to enhance the skin’s elastic properties, while lessening the appearance of excess fat in the area.
The procedure itself is very gentle and feels more like a hot massage, however slight pain may incur when the anesthesia wears off; long-lasting pain is rare
Each treatment session can last between an hour to an hour and thirty minutes.
There are no known significant risks to the treatment. Individual risks may be discussed during your consultation.
Although recovery time varies among individuals, there is usually no down-time associated with the procedure. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction results will gradually appear over a 2 to 6 months period of time and can last up to 2 years.

Diet injections aid to amplify the effects of a healthy diet and exercise regimen. More specifically, vitamin B-12 injections are administered to aid in cellular metabolism and boost the body’s production of energy. The vitamin is also commonly found in a variety of everyday foods, including fish, meats and dairy products.
CAN I DO IT?
As we age, our body’s ability to absorb certain vitamins becomes difficult. If you suffer from constant fatigue or mild depression, a B-12 shot will help to boost nutrition and energy, allowing for better diet and exercise performance. Vitamin B-12 also plays a key role in red blood cell production, which can also help patients with anemia.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dieting alone can often bring about fatigue and depression, especially when you are limiting proper nutrition and exercising more that you are accustomed to. This may lead to frequent cravings and food binges that only deteriorate progress. B-12 injections can help to decrease those cravings, allowing you to maintain a successful diet regimen. By countering mild depression, vitamin B-12 injections also help to maintain emotional well-being.
You may experience a slight stinging upon injection, but the pain normally subsides promptly.
The injections will only take a few minutes, and there is no-downtime following the procedure.
There are no known risks associated with the treatment beyond potential bruising at the injection site.make An Appoinment

Detox Of Body
A detox diet or “detoxification” is the process of relieving the body of toxins and other compounds capable of harming it. Every day our body accumulates harmful chemicals from the environment, such as pesticides, gas emissions and chemicals from personal care products. Due to this unhealthy build-up, our bodies are not able to function at full capacity, posing risks for degenerative diseases as well as weight gain. The purification method consists of restricting a variety of foods while only taking in the nutrients essential for general function. A detox diet allows your body to naturally flush out accumulated toxins while giving your major organs a chance to rejuvenate. When the body has been completely purified, the metabolic processes necessary for weight loss are able to be facilitated.
Alongside weight loss, a detox diet can benefit those suffering from:
- Poor Concentration
- Skin trouble
- Muscle aches

Acupuncture Weight Loss
Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice dating back up to 5000 years in China that involves the gentle insertion of hair-thin needles into specific points on the body's surface. Although there are several modern-day theories as to how acupuncture functions, the ancient Chinese believed that acupuncture triggers the body's own self-healing mechanisms by balancing the flow of Qi or vital energy in the body. Qi is said to flow along specific pathways, known as channels or meridians which travel throughout the body surface and interior. Most acupuncture points are located along these pathways and act as gateways through which imbalances in the body's energies can be corrected. The effects of acupuncture can be further amplified through herbal supplements, which are often paired in practice.
CAN I DO IT? Any other restrictions?
Acupuncture can be performed on patients of all ages and for a variety of medical conditions. For weight loss in particular, the following list provides an overview of how acupuncture can fit into your weight-loss treatment.
- Reduces hunger and food cravings so you can loose weight.
- Allows your body to take in less fat from the food you eat.
- Feel full so you can eat less.
- Eases the frustration and anxiety that triggers overeating.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
An initial session with an acupuncturist involves a thorough evaluation, including both a physical exam and a detailed discussion of your case and medical history. The traditional method of diagnosis includes examination of the tongue and pulse, in addition to palpation (pressing) of different regions of the body. Once the acupuncturist decides on a diagnosis and treatment plan, the actual treatment may begin.
Once a regimen has been decided, stainless-steel, pre-sterilized, single-use disposable needles are inserted through the skin at specific points on the body. These needles are smaller than hypodermic needles and rarely elicit pain, with the occasional exception of a pinprick sensation upon insertion.
Once a needle is inserted, the patient may feel a characteristic, temporary needling sensation act or near the point, which may include such feelings of fullness, pressure, warmth, tingling, or heaviness. These sensations are not painful and are interpreted as a signal that the body's healing mechanisms have been activated, much like turning on a light switch.
The needles are generally left in place for 15-50 minutes, although the specific time varies according to the patient's condition and intended procedure.
Most risks associated with acupuncture stem from malpractice or lack of experience. At Ione, all acupuncturists have been certified.
The course of treatment varies depending on several factors, including the severity and nature of the patient’s condition. A typical course of treatment may involve 6-12 sessions, although for chronic ailments a longer period of treatment may be necessary. Initially you may receive 2 to 3 treatments per week, and then as the condition improves the frequency of treatment may be adjusted gradually. Most patients typically show improvement after just a few treatments, although each person responds differently. The treatment strategy may be modified as the patient's condition improved or changes during the course of treatment.make An Appoinment
