Whether it’s genetics, aging, pain, or a busy schedule getting in the way of achieving your weight loss goals, it might feel like the cards are stacked against you. If you’re unhappy with your weight and disenchanted with the weight loss process, please don’t lose hope.
The internet and social media are many people’s main sources for weight loss tips—and body envy. How do they make it look so easy? The trouble with DIYing your weight loss journey with the advice of strangers is that what worked for them might not work for you.
And that’s okay.
Every Body Is Unique
Finding what works for you through trial and error can be extremely time consuming and discouraging, and there’s no guarantee you’ll get to where you want to be. But here’s the thing: The best weight loss programs are the ones that are customized for the individual. After all, no two bodies are the same.
Dermestetics takes an individualized approach to weight loss. We tailor comprehensive weight loss programs in Fairfax and Prince William Counties to suit your needs, so you can trust the process, believe in yourself, and feel confident again in your body. And best of all? We’re here to support you along the way.
Standing on a scale can only tell you how much you weigh; it says nothing about your health. At Dermestetics, we use InBody Composition Analysis during the consultation process to provide the clearest possible measurement of your overall well-being.
The Latest & Greatest in Tech
The InBody technology measures body composition in well under a minute, and it provides invaluable data that we can then use to customize your treatment plan to your body and your needs. That’s exactly why we incorporate InBody into our consultation process. The more informed we are, the more precise we can be in personalizing your weight loss program.
For the most representative results, we recommend not exercising or eating in the hours before your analysis, as well as avoiding alcohol and caffeine. Apart from that, all you’ll need to do is show up for your appointment. Our specialists will direct you from there.
You can expect a simple, quick, and easy process. You’ll remove your shoes, place your feet on the foot electrodes, and hold your thumbs on the oval electrodes. We’ll ask that you remain still throughout the brief scan. In less than a minute, the industry-leading technology will have information about your fat mass, muscle mass, and body water. Using that information, we can tailor your weight loss program at our locations in Gainesville, McLean, and Vienna specifically to your body’s composition.
It’s astounding how much information can be gathered from such a quick and easy process!
Medical Weight Loss
Sometimes diet and exercise alone aren’t enough to reduce stubborn fat and maintain your ideal body weight. Do yourself a favor right now and repeat after us:
- that is not my fault
- I am not a failure
- I still have options
Good! Now that we’ve established that, let’s talk about the details.
When you feel like you’ve tried everything and still aren’t making the progress you want, it might be time to consider medical weight loss. And no, we’re not talking about surgery. At Dermestetics, you have options fine-tuned to your needs and goals.
Weekly semaglutide injections can help regulate your blood sugar and metabolism, in addition to curbing your appetite. How do they work? Semaglutide mimics the body’s naturally occurring hormone that tells your brain you’ve had enough to eat. It also slows down how fast your food can be processed through your digestive system.
Originally formulated to treat type 2 diabetes, semaglutide is now FDA-approved to treat obesity, and it has rapidly become one of the most popular pharmaceuticals for weight management.
If we determine you’re a good candidate for semaglutide, we’ll prescribe weekly injections for you to self-administer at home. The first injection is administered in-office by your provider, but If you’d prefer, you can also schedule weekly appointments to have your provider continue to administer your injections for you.
Some patients have lost as much as 15 to 20% of their body weight after a year of treatment—or about 5 to 7 pounds per month. If you feel like you’ve tried just about everything to lose weight with little success, consider talking to your Dermestetics medical weight loss provider about semaglutide.
Dermestetics offers a variety of treatments to supplement our weight loss programs in Fairfax and Prince William Counties. From body sculpting to injectables, we can fine-tune your treatment plan to perfectly suit your goals, helping you achieve the physique of your dreams.
What would your go-to aesthetic and wellness boutique be without game-changing innovations in body sculpting technology? Surgery used to be one of the only options for contouring your body with precision, but that is no longer the case.
The world of aesthetics has come a long way, developing noninvasive alternatives to surgery that transform your body from the inside out. No knives. No downtime.
Using a combination of radiofrequency and HIFEM (electromagnetic) stimulation, Emsculpt NEO is a powerful treatment that burns fat and tones muscle.
The radiofrequency produces a pleasant heating sensation, frequently compared to a hot stone massage, that quite literally melts the fat away. The HIFEM stimulation induces deep muscle contractions—about 20,000 during a 30 minute session. While the HIFEM stimulation is not unpleasant, it is intense. One session can deliver the same benefits of doing 20,000 crunches—except instead of doing those crunches, you’re comfortably lying down.
It can take 2 to 4 weeks to start noticing your results, but they’re well worth the wait. On average, patients experience a 19% loss in fat and a 16% increase in muscle mass when paired with diet and exercise.
In addition to providing breathtaking aesthetic results, Emsculpt NEO can also be used to relieve back pain by strengthening the muscles in the lower back.
Cellulite may have felt like the bane of adulthood and the ultimate confidence killer, but that was before Sentient Sculpt. The 2.45 gigahertz thermal energy used by Sentient Sculpt targets skin, fat, and the fibrous septae responsible for the appearance of cellulite—all without overheating the skin.
Most of our patients see their best results after at least 4 treatment sessions scheduled 4 weeks apart. After your initial round of treatments, maintaining optimal results is as easy as scheduling ongoing appointments every 3 months.
Excess submental fat, AKA a double chin, is especially hard to get rid of, even when you’ve lost weight elsewhere on your body. Fortunately, Kybella can help, even when nothing else can.
Kybella injections permanently destroy the fat cells under your jawline with minimal downtime. Some of our patients experience mild bruising and swelling after their Kybella treatment, but these side effects typically resolve on their own in 1 to 10 days.
Kybella uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance, to help your body break down and absorb fat cells. You may need 2 to 4 treatments, spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart, for optimal results. Our patients usually begin to notice their results 4 to 6 weeks after their final treatment. Full results can take up to 3 months to develop, and the duration of results varies somewhat from patient to patient.
Semaglutide can help you lose weight fast, sometimes faster than your skin can keep up with. While loose skin may seem like an unfortunate side effect of medical weight loss, Dermestetics offers multiple nonsurgical treatment options for skin tightening.
Morpheus8 RF microneedling stimulates the body’s natural healing and rejuvenation mechanisms. I tightens and remodels the skin in addition to boosting collagen and elastin production.
Enhance Your Weight Loss Results
To get the most out of our comprehensive weight loss programs in Fairfax County and Prince William County, we strongly recommend developing healthy, supportive habits. Enhancing your results with a balanced diet, regular physical activity, and stress reduction can help extend their duration and promote longevity.
It all goes hand in hand. Getting treatments and making changes can make you feel better. And when people feel better, they’re often more motivated to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Instead of thinking of dieting and exercising as what you have to do, try to think of them as a way to invest in yourself. Like your weight loss program, diet and exercise are forms of self-care—they’re opportunities to show yourself love and to improve your overall well-being.

Our dedicated team of medical professionals and Master Aestheticians is committed to providing exceptional and compassionate care to all of our patients.
