MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
There are many methods that a person can adopt, when trying to lose weight. In some cases a person will feel they are doing all the right things with little effect. This is where a medical weight loss treatment at R&R Aesthetics can help.
Our prescription-only weight loss medication is designed to support the efforts of healthy eating and regular exercise when it comes to reducing fat and reaching your ideal weight.
We use Ozempic and Saxenda – medication that works in a similar way to the hormone GLP-1 (which is naturally produced by the body). This helps to regulate your appetite, making your body feel fuller for longer so you naturally eat less and consume fewer calories.
Medical weight loss treatments can be self-administered at home through the use of a daily pre-filled injection, or ‘skinny pen’. Following a thorough consultation, your practitioner will ensure you are prescribed the right dosage. They will provide guidance on how to administer the injections, and on which part of the body it should be used.
Regular use can achieve a noticeable reduction in the shape and size of areas such as the stomach, upper arms or thighs. Before being widely used as a weight loss solution, these medications have been successful in improving diabetes. As well as suppressing hunger and slowing down the rate at which the body empties itself, these treatments work to increase the production of insulin.
At your consultation your expert practitioner will consider your general health, medical history, weight and BMI before deciding if a medical weight loss treatment is suitable for you. Each case will need to be viewed individually, as different people have different goals, and not everyone responds to the same method in the same way.
Ozempic or Saxenda can assist in helping you to make positive changes to your lifestyle. Maintaining these changes can ensure the outcome will last for a long time. We also offer body treatments such as ENDYMED BODY CONTOURING to help tighten skin during the weight loss process.Book a Consultation

Frequently asked questions
Am I a suitable candidate for medical weight loss treatment?
This type of medical intervention is aimed at helping a person to make positive lifestyle changes for people who are overweight or obese. A typical patient has a BMI of 27 or over, and has spent a significant amount of time trying to lose weight and get in better shape. Your suitability will be discussed at your consultation, however if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you may not be recommended.
Is this treatment safe?
Ozempic and Saxenda are medically approved. As this is a prescription-only medication you will need to ensure you follow your practitioners directions, and always contact the clinic if you have any concerns.
Is this treatment painful?
The injection pen contains a fine needle that produces a sensation similar to a scratch, when administered. This feeling is usually very minor and only lasts as long as the injection itself. For your comfort, you can talk to your practitioner about an effective numbing cream if this is preferred.
Does this treatment have any side effects or risks?
Side effects will be discussed at consultation. It is not unusual for patients to experience some nausea, vomiting or changes to bowel movements at the start of treatment. Your practitioner may decide to begin with a lower dosage of the medication while your body adjusts.
s there any downtime?
This treatment should ideally be administered at the same time everyday. This can be managed to fit in with your usual daily routine so that it wouldn’t cause you any disruption.
What our patients say...
Excellent appointment with Caroline this week and I’m grateful for her moving the date forward due to lockdown. I’m starting to see results from my Endybleph already (had 2 treatments) so I’m really happy
I’ve had two treatments with Caroline so far and have been so pleased with the results. Most recently I have commenced a course of Dermapen facials, I was initially extremely nervous about the procedure but Caroline put me at ease. She is professional and knowledgeable in all her communication and aftercare, and the clinic setting is pristine. I recommend her to all my friends!
First time getting my lips done and i couldn’t be happier! I was quite nervous as i wasn’t sure how they might turn out as i have quite little facial features but Caroline was quick to ease any of my worries! She explained every detail of the treatment i was about to receive and carried on doing so through out the whole service, checking i was happy and comfortable at all times. So pleased i chose to come to Caroline and honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else! Not to mention she worked around the times and dates most suitable for myself and opened up shop just for my treatment that day, excellent customer service! I can’t wait to return!
Caroline is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything clearly and puts you at ease during consultation. So professional and really friendly! I can’t wait to start treatments with her.
Excellent results, very pleased. Very professional. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!
Have been going to Caroline for various treatments in between lock down and haven’t looked back. Knowledgeable, professional and friendly.
Caroline was lovely, her knowledge and professionalism put me at ease. She explained everything thoroughly and was very gentle. Amazing results would definitely recommend.
Caroline gets better and better! Love my appointments as she always gives you plenty of time and fantastic results. Not pushy, only prescriptive. Recommend her any day!
Caroline was recommended to me by a family member, I’d been nervous about lip fillers for a few years and wanted the person doing it to be trusted and professional. Caroline is both. She is very thorough, her knowledge and skills put me at ease. Her service is flawless every time I visit and I really appreciate how accommodating her appointments are. Highly recommended. I even travel from London to Leeds I love her service that much.
My wife visited Caroline for a consultation regarding her tear troughs and nasolabial folds. Caroline explained that because both areas were puffy , fillers in these areas would not be suitable and the best results would be from cheek fillers. Caroline showed my wife photographic examples of previous clients and the results cheek fillers had achieved but at no time did it feel like a hard sale. After deciding to proceed with cheek fillers Caroline thoroughly explained the procedure and risks involved and talked to my wife all the way through the procedure to ensure everything was alright. The premises are very clean and modern and Caroline is extremely professional. Would highly recommend.
I have visited Caroline since 2017 for my treatments. I highly recommend her services, she is amazing at what she does. I have already recommended Caroline to friends and family. She is knowledgeable and professional and the clinic is beautiful. If you are reading this review deciding whether or not to book – do it! You won’t be disappointed.
Just had my 2nd anti wrinkle treatment with Caroline. We compared my skin with photos Caroline took at my first consultation visit and the difference in my skin is amazing. The products Caroline recommends are excellent and actually work. Caroline was professional and friendly as always. Highly recommended.
