Weight Loss Consultations
Our Medical team provide the National Medical Weight Loss Programme to patients in Yorkshire
True You Skin Clinic is a certified partner of The National Medical Weight Loss Programme (NMWLP). We offer you medical support, advice, education, and treatment options to help you on your weight loss journey, which is approved by nursing and obesity associations.
Designed as a medically supervised and holistic route to weight loss for those who are overweight (BMI 25 – 29.9) or obese (BMI over 30), we are able to provide a multi-disciplinary approach.
What is the medical weight loss programme ?
.The first step is a full medical consultation where we take some measurements and discuss your overall health and well-being, as well as your struggles with weight. This is a requirement in order to undertake the NMWLP and gives you and our practitioner an opportunity to fully explore the weight management options available to you, which may include the use of medication, alongside diet and exercise plans, for example.
What treatments are available to help me loose weight ?

How does the treatment work ?
Should you be suitable for the use of medication, this will involve a simple and painless injection which is self-administered each day or week (depending on your treatment choice), using an easy-to-use pen that is pre-filled with the medication.
Both the daily or weekly treatment options mimic the action of the body’s natural hormone (GLP-1) which regulates appetite and food intake. GLP-1 is released in the gut after eating, and makes you feel full, hence your appetite is reduced. It also delays the time it takes for the stomach to empty, keeping you feeling full and satisfied for longer. This leads to lower calorie intake and subsequent weight loss. By reducing your appetite, and following the NMWLP advice, it will help you keep to the calorie-controlled diet of your choice, or one provided by our team, to help you easily achieve your weight loss goals.
Is the treatment for me ?
The NMWLP offers a programme of lifestyle and treatment options for controlling and managing weight in those who are overweight or obese, which may include the prescription of medicines to help reduce weight.
Medicines that are prescribed for weight loss, must be used in conjunction with diet and exercise plans, are for adults aged between 18-75 who have a BMI of 30 or above, or a BMI of 27 when there are any other weight-related health issues present, such as high blood pressure, abnormal levels of fats (lipids) in the blood, or breathing problems during sleep (obstructive sleep apnoea).
If any of the following apply, you will not be suitable for the prescribed medications, but we may still be able to provide other lifestyle, nutritional and medically supervised treatment options for you:
* Allergy to any of the product components
* Pregnant, trying to get pregnant or breast feeding
* History or family history of medullary thyroid cancer
* History of multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 * Severe kidney disease
* Severe heart failure
* Severe inflammatory bowel disease
* Disease of the liver, pancreas or gallbladder
* Severe depression, schizophrenia or eating disorders
* Already taking insulin, other GLP-1’s or DPP4 inhibitors
Are there any side effects ?
As with any new medication, you may experience some side effects, which is why the NMWLP is a medically supervised programme where you can be monitored throughout. The most common side effects are nausea, indigestion, constipation, or diarrhoea. However, these usually settle after a short period of time.
You should always bear in mind that by losing weight you are reducing the risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and even cancer. Weight reduction will also relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint pain. Please also remember that successful weight loss will help you feel happier and healthier, with an improved sense of well-being and a newfound joy for life

Suffering from acne since starting puberty at 11. I persevered with many treatment, pill and washes from doctors, which miserably failed. I finally discovered Lindsey’s miracle treatments. Although I was dubious that this would not work as nothing else has before now, I was willing to try anything. She recommended I have medical microdermabrasion and skin peels to shift the acne, she also suggested I use a dermaroller therapy to treat the scaring left from years of picking and squeezing. I know that without this treatment I would still be going round in circles with prescriptions and high street products which just made things worse for me, my only regret is not finding out about this earlier. Now I am so glad to have finally got clear face and my confidence back, at last I feel like a women and not a spotty teen any more. I am thankful to Lindsey for her care, she made my number one wish come true.
I have visited many skin clinics over the years with my problematic skin ( acne ) on each and every occasion they have tried to sell me unsuitable products and treatments rather than trying to help me control my skin. Lindsey has not only been extremely helpful and knowledgeable but will also only ever advise on products and treatment that will benefit my skin rather than a hard sell. Not only would I recommend this clinic to others but will not use any other clinic in the future. It makes a refreshing change to know there are still clinics out that that care about customers rather than just wanting to sell products and treatments that are unsuitable
I came to the clinic to see Lindsey after suffering from acne for 13years! I didn’t even like taking my make up off! She made me feel really relaxed! After regular microderm sessions my skin is amazing! My confidence has soared and I am happy to go without makeup! Microderm will be a part of my skincare routine forever!
