Validation of GLP-1 Weight Loss Treatments with 3D Scans

Discover how 3D body scanning and GLP-1 treatments like Ozempic are revolutionizing medical weight loss in the USA. Learn how clinics like Sculpt Wellness in Spokane, WA, validate their programs using Fit3D technology to provide precise, visual progress tracking for clients.

Validation of GLP-1 Weight Loss Treatments

3D body scanning is an amazing tool that is revolutionizing the way we approach weight loss and body transformation. There is a lot of research and buzz surrounding the use of GLP-1 drugs like Ozempic for medical weight loss, and research from esteemed bodies like the NIH has confirmed the effectiveness of these treatments.

The Rise of GLP-1 Treatments

GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) drugs, such as Ozempic, are becoming increasingly popular for their efficacy in weight loss. These medications mimic the GLP-1 hormone, which plays a crucial role in regulating appetite and blood sugar levels. Clinical studies have shown that GLP-1 treatments can lead to significant weight loss, making them a valuable tool for individuals struggling with obesity and related health issues.

Medical Weight Loss in the USA: A Snapshot

Medical weight loss treatments have seen a surge in demand across the United States. Here are some key facts about this growing trend:

  1. Prevalence of Obesity: According to the CDC, more than 42% of American adults were classified as obese in 2018. This has led to an increased focus on effective weight loss solutions.
  2. Economic Impact: The annual medical cost of obesity in the U.S. was estimated at $147 billion in 2008, with the costs likely having increased since then. Effective weight loss treatments can significantly reduce these costs.
  3. Comprehensive Approach: Medical weight loss often involves a combination of medications, dietary changes, exercise, and behavioral therapy. This multifaceted approach is essential for sustainable weight loss and overall health improvement.

Fit3D and Body Contouring

Many of Fit3D's body contouring clients use GLP-1 treatments in combination with laser and other aesthetic treatments to help patients lose weight. The integration of these advanced technologies provides a comprehensive solution for those seeking to improve their health and appearance.

Case Study: Sculpt Wellness in Spokane, WA

Sculpt Wellness in Spokane, WA, is one of the clinics successfully integrating GLP-1 treatments with other services.

They offer 6 treatments as part of this package: 

  • Personal Sculpt Membership Plan: Receive personalized guidance from our wellness nurses.
  • Cryotherapy: A quick and easy method to boost caloric burn and natural energy.
  • LED Sculpting Lights: Target specific areas for fat reduction and skin tightening.
  • Vibration Therapy: Enhances lymphatic drainage and improves bone and muscle density.
  • Fit 3D Body Scans: Track inches, body fat, and muscle weight for accurate progress, beyond just the scale.
  • Cryo T-Shock Body Sculpting: Advanced fat freezing, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening by our skilled aestheticians.

    Results: They have helped over 600 people in the last two years achieve remarkable body transformations.  The program has been a huge success for their clients, but also for the program financially.

    While many programs are still considering how to introduce GLP-1 into their programs, Sculpt is a great example of how a business can use Fit3D to document their program success. 3D Scans are mainly used for communicating early results to clients mid-program, but more & more are used for marketing efforts for new clients as well.

" We’ve been using Fit3D to validate our GLP-1 weight loss treatments with clients for the past two years. Fit3D has been instrumental in showing clients where fat loss is happening, especially in the early stages of treatment when it’s harder to see with the naked eye. We’ve run about 600+ clients through the program to date, and Fit3D has been essential for showing results and enhancing communication with clients." - Lindsay K.

The Advantage of 3D Body Scanning

One thing that Lindsay highlighted was that the 3D body scans were a significant improvement over BIA (bioelectrical impedance analysis) scans due to their visual nature. Many in the industry still use devices like InBody that do not offer circumference measurements, making it difficult for clients to see where changes in their body are occurring. At Fit3D, we call this a "digital receipt."

3D body scanning provides detailed and accurate measurements, allowing both clients and practitioners to visually track progress. This can be especially motivating for clients, as they can see tangible evidence of their efforts and the effectiveness of their treatments.

  • Visual Progress: Clients can see a 3D representation of their body, helping them understand where changes are happening.
  • Enhanced Communication: Practitioners can better explain treatment progress and adjust plans based on precise data.
  • Motivation and Accountability: Visual progress helps keep clients motivated and accountable to their weight loss goals.
