LX Medical's weight loss program has helped numerous patients achieve their weight loss goals, live a healthy life, and enjoy total well-being for years. At LX Medical, we believe that weight loss shouldn't be centered around a one-size-fits-all mentality. Our doctors and practitioners create custom weight loss programs that are tailored to your unique body, rather than creating plans based off of someone matching your age or weight. With our team's support, you can achieve real results and start living life without the extra pounds.
That's important in the modern world, where maintaining good health and fitness has become more important than ever. Research has shown that viruses and diseases are more likely to affect people who are overweight and unhealthy. Unfortunately, there are many "miracle" supplements and unhealthy diet plans that mislead people into thinking that weight loss is not beneficial. Furthermore, weight loss "experts" often offer unstructured and unsupervised programs that do more harm than good.
At LX Medical, we prioritize the well-being of our patients when it comes to weight loss. Our approach is patient-centric, focusing on personalized treatments. Our doctors first evaluate your lifestyle habits, and we work with you to replace negative patterns with positive, personalized lifestyle changes. This is crucial for achieving optimal wellness and weight loss. Benefits of losing weight include:
However, losing weight is only the beginning. To keep weight off permanently, adopting a healthy, active lifestyle is essential. At LX Medical, we help you achieve this by implementing manageable, positive lifestyle changes that jumpstart your weight loss journey. By making healthy behaviors a part of your daily routine, you can achieve your weight loss goals and become the best version of yourself.
One of the most successful treatments we offer to help patients shed pounds safely is peptide therapy for weight loss in Chanhassen, MN. In fact, peptides for weight loss, such as semaglutide (also known as Ozempic and Wegovy, MOTS-C,) and AOD-9604, have been proven to be effective and have helped countless men and women live life at a healthy weight.
Consisting of amino acids, peptides help regulate the biological processes and functions in your body. As the building blocks of protein, they are crucial for your overall health. Unfortunately, however, many men and women suffer from peptide deficiency. Peptide therapy gives your body the peptides it needs, improving your ability to:
Peptide therapy is often used alongside other treatment plans from LX Medical, such as our custom weight loss plans. That's where peptides like semaglutide and AOD-9604 come into play.
Peptide therapy is often used to boost hormones and support our total well-being. Different types of peptides can target different areas of our health. For example, some collagen peptide supplements can help make our skin, hair, and gut healthier. Other peptides, like semaglutide and AOD-9604, can help facilitate healthy weight loss.
Peptide therapy works in a different way than vitamin supplements. When we take a multivitamin for our hair, skin, and nails, our body must absorb the nutrients. But sometimes, our body can't absorb all the nutrients, so they just leave our body through our urine. Peptides, on the other hand, are part of the proteins in our bodies, making them easier to benefit from and absorb.
But what about peptide therapy for weight loss? The truth is there are various peptides that have different effects, including some that facilitate weight loss. However, weight loss is a nuanced process that involves multiple factors such as diet, exercise, age, genetics, and lifestyle. While peptides can assist you in achieving your weight loss goals, they are most effective when combined with improvements like a healthier diet, more frequent exercise, and better life choices. If you've tried various weight loss plans and diets, but haven't had any success, peptides like semaglutide and ADO-9604 may be the extra boost you need to experience true weight loss.
A recent study in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism found that people who used peptides in conjunction with a weight loss plan experienced incredible results. More specifically, patients reported a 14% reduction in body fat on average. Two of the most popular peptides for weight loss also happen to be FDA-approved and, when appropriate, part of your weight loss journey with LX Medical.
Those peptides are semaglutide and AOD-9604 and are touted for their therapeutic benefits and long-term safety profile. If you're looking for a little extra help to lose weight and keep it off for good, peptide therapy for weight loss could be for you.
Looking to shed some pounds and keep them off for good? Diet and exercise are crucial, but for busy adults and parents, sticking to a routine is easier said than done. If you need extra help losing weight, consider semaglutide. This injection, approved by the FDA for diabetes and obesity, can stimulate GLP-1 receptors in the brain to aid in quicker weight loss and long-term health.
Semaglutide works in several ways. First, it acts as glucagon in your body, which helps tell your brain that you're full and don't need to eat anymore. Secondly, it slows down the time it takes for food to transit out of your stomach. This process reduces unnecessary eating and snacking throughout the day. Perhaps more importantly, it reduces glucose spikes after you eat, which causes a litany of issues like inflammation.
Semaglutide also helps your pancreas secrete insulin while making you insulin sensitive. This regulates glucose levels in your body and how your body metabolizes that glucose. Additionally, by reducing inflammation in your body, you benefit from powerful anti-aging and longevity properties.
When combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, semaglutide can provide:
Unlike other weight loss clinics, at LX Medical, you can enjoy the benefits of semaglutide from the comfort of your office or home. Injections are administered once a week. Once you've met your weight loss goals, you can reduce your intake to a minimum dose for additional positive effects like ongoing weight management. You can also quit taking semaglutide entirely. If you opt to stop, our medical weight loss team can chat with you about other types of peptide therapy for weight loss in Chanhassen, MN.
This peptide, which is often used in conjunction with semaglutide regimens, stimulates the breakdown of fat while inhibiting lipogenesis and supporting your tendons and cartilage. It has grown in popularity because of its ability to boost your metabolism, which helps burn fat. What's great about AOD-9604 is that it stimulates the pituitary gland but does not affect tissue growth or blood sugar. Perhaps most impressive is that this peptide can burn fat without you feeling the need to overeat as a result.
In fact, AOD-9604 activates your body's fat-burning processes using its own unique mechanism without needing an HGH receptor. It also releases obese fat cells and reduces new fat cell accumulation. One of the most notable benefits of AOD-9604 is its ability to regulate blood sugar and manage insulin levels, which can lead to reduced inflammation and weight loss. Additionally, AOD-9604 can aid in building muscle, similar to growth hormones. Its benefits extend beyond fat loss, as it contains regenerative properties that may be beneficial for individuals with various conditions, such as:
With the ability to reduce fat that is stored in your abdominal region, this weight-loss peptide is very popular for older people with stubborn belly fat. It is also often used by people who have tried other diets and weight loss plans but had little or no success.
At LX Medical, our doctors offer a range of peptide therapies for your health and well-being. Peptides like semaglutide and AOD-9604 are often used as part of a comprehensive peptide therapy plan, crafted by LX Medical specialists for your body. If you're interested in losing weight, gut health peptides like BPC-157, Thymulosin Alpha, Thymulosin Beta, and GHK-Cu can be incredibly beneficial along your weight loss journey.
This naturally occurring peptide, sometimes called the "Body Protection Compound," is secreted in your gut and helps repair its lining. It works by helping your body be in a constant state of restoration and repair, providing powerful anti-inflammatory effects. This process helps with issues like:
When it comes to losing weight, BPC-157 is often included in peptide therapy for weight loss in Chanhassen, MN, because it can help reduce pain and inflammation resulting from new or increased exercise efforts. As noted previously, exercise and diet are key in long-term weight loss, and BPC-157 can make those efforts easier.
This peptide is injected once a day, with courses ranging from 30 to 60 days. After you finish the injection course, consider BPC-157 oral supplements to maintain its benefits.
Thymosin Alpha-1 is a powerful immune system modulator that helps you resist infections, illnesses, and disease. By naturally stimulating T cells to locate and eliminate viruses, bacteria, and even tumor cells, this peptide prompts your body to respond to these invasive organisms, making your immune system naturally stronger and more effective.
Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Thymosin Alpha-1 in regulating immunity and inflammation related to rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and other conditions. Recent clinical studies have also shown promising results in using this peptide to fight lung, colon, breast, and other types of cancer. By reducing inflammation in your body and enhancing your immune system, you can optimize your body as you lose weight with the help of LX Medical.
Patients inject this peptide every day for two weeks and then continue three times a week for 2.5 months.
Thymosin Beta-4 is a peptide consisting of 43 amino acids that is known to promote healing in the body and has anti-inflammatory properties. It occurs naturally in higher concentrations at injury sites and is a water-soluble protein that can regulate cell migration to a site. It is also very good at repairing tissue damage. The substance is not only beneficial for wound healing and skin repair but can also aid in the repair of the brain, spinal cord, and heart. Medical professionals consider Thymosin Beta-4 to be a safe and potent substance in both its natural and synthetic forms.
Like its Alpha counterpart, this peptide can be beneficial for individuals undergoing weight loss, and can help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with exercising and more.
Patients inject this peptide every day for two weeks and then continue three times a week for 2.5 months.
Research suggests that GHK-CU functions as a feedback signal when tissue damage occurs. This peptide is effective in shielding damaged tissue, reducing inflammation, and replacing scarred tissue with healthy tissue. Although further research is necessary to determine its effectiveness on a larger scale, GHK-CU has already been proven to play a role in wound healing and inflammation reduction. Like other peptides for weight loss in Chanhassen, MN, GHK-Cu supports your gut health and weight loss efforts by lowering inflammation in your body, which often happens from changes to your diet or exercise regimens.
Patients should take this peptide for 20-30 days, especially when used for wound healing or as part of a more robust peptide therapy package.
At LX Medical, we're proud to make better care possible.
We are a physician-led team of doctors, nurses, and health experts, advised by a panel of top healthcare leaders who are revolutionizing the power of house calls. In fact, all of our peptides for weight loss in Chanhassen, MN, can be applied in your home or office without having to wait in long lines or uncomfortable waiting rooms.

To supplement our patient's success, we bring with us advanced diagnostic technology, IV fluids, and medications, with access to outpatient imaging and lab centers. Unlike some weight loss centers, we only staff highly-trained medical professionals and advanced practice providers with experience and compassion.

June 4 is a day Sam Macy will never forget.
Wrapping up his junior year at Chanhassen, Macy attended a football camp at the University of Minnesota. At the end of the day, Macy was told to stay behind, as he met with Minnesota football head coach P.J. Fleck, who offered him a scholarship to play Division I football.
“It felt fantastic. It’s always been an absolute dream to be a Gopher and I finally get to live that,” Macy said. “So just a really surreal experience but it was a good time at camp, I felt I got better as a football player and then obviously got to be a Gopher.”
On June 5, one day after attending the camp, Macy announced via his Twitter account that he committed to play football at Minnesota. Classified as an edge rusher, Macy was rated ninth overall out of recruits in Minnesota in his class.
The recruiting process began during Macy’s sophomore season when teams requested to make game-day visits for Chanhassen. He totaled 32 tackles through eight games in 2021 but said he weighed about 175 pounds and did not think he would have an opportunity to play for a school in a Power Five conference.
A switch flipped during his junior year. Macy was part of a Chanhassen defensive unit that allowed an average of 19 points per game, and the Storm finished 8-2 with a 23-21 loss in the section 2AAAAA championship game to Mankato West. Macy also totaled 44 tackles in eight games, sixth most on the team.
Recruiting heated up at the beginning of 2023 following the Storm’s successful season. Macy said he not only increased his weight to 195 pounds but also increased his speed, two traits he believed he needed to improve in order to reach his ultimate goal of playing for his home state.
Minnesota had visited Chanhassen a few different times, as Gophers defensive coordinator Joe Rossi watched a workout in the spring and defensive line coach Winston DeLattiboudere. Other schools that offered Macy a scholarship included Air Force, Army, Navy, North Dakota and South Dakota.
“It was fun, but it was surprising because this started in January and in about the span of six months is when I’ve picked up pretty much all my offers,” Macy said.
Macy said his interest in Minnesota, however, started well before that when former Gophers tight end and Waconia native Maxx Williams played for the team. That interest continued to grow once Fleck arrived and the program began achieving more success, including ending a 14-game losing streak against Wisconsin and reaching an 11-2 record in 2019.
“That’s really where I’m like ‘Alright, if I can get here that’s what I want to do. Let’s pinpoint it, put it on the bulletin board,’” Macy said.
While Macy now knows his football career will continue past high school, he is looking forward to the opportunity to play one more season for Chanhassen. He said the main goal for the team is to have fun, but also getting to the Class 5A state tournament after coming up just shy of that goal last season.
“There’s not one player on this team who doesn’t have their eyes set on the prize,” Macy said. “Everyone’s been grinding. Everyone has been working. So this is going to be a special year.”
The 2023 football season begins Aug. 31 as Chanhassen travels to Elk River and then hosts Owatonna Sept. 8 in the Storm’s home opener. Other notable games include Homecoming against Waconia Sept. 22, a section 2AAAAA championship game rematch against Mankato West Sept. 29 and the rivalry game against Chaska Oct. 13.

Café Zupas, the Utah-based chain of fast-casual restaurants, wants to open its 11th Minnesota location in Chanhassen, but the project is temporarily on hold as city staff takes a look at how the restaurant would fit into a wider downtown redevelopment.
The company is still waiting on final approval for a standalone development at 800 W. 78th St. in Chanhassen on the southwest corner of Lunds & Byerly's parking lot within West Village Center. The company is proposing a 3,000-square-foot Café Zupas restaurant with two drive-thru lanes and a patio.
Chanhassen's planning commission recommended approval of Café Zupas' plans in early June. But the proposal was tabled at a later City Council meeting to give staff more time to complete a review of land use ordinances and downtown design guidelines to ensure future development is consistent, as the city prepares for a planned "civic campus" and cements its vision for a more pedestrian-friendly, "true 'main street' feel" along West 78th Street.
In an email, Chanhassen Mayor Elise Ryan said: "We remain in close contact with Café Zupas as we are excited about this potential new restaurant, but we must ensure this development fits with the vision for the exciting future of Chanhassen’s downtown business district."
Chanhassen's new civic campus will feature a new city hall, council chambers, senior center and park amenities, including a splash pad, playground and performance space. The project is in the early stages of design, led by local firms BKV Group Architects and Hoisington Koegler Group Inc., with construction is expected to start next May.
Mayor Ryan's email also mentioned the Chanhassen Cinema site as another redevelopment opportunity. The movie theater shuttered in early April, with owner Platinum Cinemas citing pandemic-related challenges in its decision, after many years in business. City Manager Laurie Hokkanen told the Business Journal on Wednesday that Plymouth-based developer Roers Cos. has a purchase agreement for the property at 570 Market St., but a proposal hasn't been submitted yet.
Café Zupas' other Minnesota restaurants are in Blaine, Coon Rapids, Eagan, Eden Prairie, Edina, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, Richfield and Woodbury. The company expects to open a 10th location in West St. Paul in the fall.
“Having worked very well with the Planning Department over the last seven months, we were surprised by the City Council's decision," Café Zupas Vice President of Real Estate Edgar Cepuritis said in a statement. "We remain hopeful they will come to a quick resolution that allows us to open our Chanhassen Café Zupas next spring, creating over 40 local jobs and providing a fresh and healthy food option for the local community.”
Chanhassen City Council is expected to revisit the Café Zupas proposal on July 17.

The "Prince Rogers Nelson Memorial Highway" would cover a stretch of Highway 5 in Chanhassen and Eden Prairie.
ST PAUL, Minn. — Minnesotans are one step closer to driving their little red Corvettes on a highway named after music legend and Chanhassen's most famous resident, Prince.
On Friday, the Minnesota House passed a bill that would rename a seven-mile stretch of Highway 5 in Chanhassen and Eden Prairie as "Prince Rogers Nelson Memorial Highway."
House File 717 specifies signs on that stretch of the highway would be purple and installed in the summer of 2023.
“It’s a tremendous privilege to work with Minnesotans and all the advocates to recognize and honor Prince’s contributions to our state, our country, and the world,” Rep. Lucy Rehm (DFL-Chanhassen), an author on the bill, said in a statement.
The bill unanimously passed the House with a 121-0 vote on the seventh anniversary of Prince's death at his home in Paisley Park.
A companion bill is currently working its way through the Senate and is expected to be signed by Governor Tim Walz before the legislature adjourns on May 22.
Mark Webster, a security guard at Paisley Park, has been pushing to rename this stretch of Highway 5 after Prince for at least three and a half years now.
"What I felt today in the state capitol was 100-percent bipartisanship. Everybody was happy. Everybody wanted this to happen," Webster said. "This is for all the fans, for the people who love Prince. Prince gave a lot to us. This is about giving something back to Prince and honoring him and his legacy."
Mary Anne Wasik, a Prince fan since she was 12 years old, called the road a "perfect" tribute.
"It's something that will last forever," she said, "like his music."

Minnesota's 2024 recruiting class is ranked top-15 nationally as we finish the first week of June, and the Gophers have added to that class following their first camp of the season yesterday. PJ Fleck and staff decided to offer Chanhassen (Minn.) rush end Sam Macy following camp, and he just announced his commitment to Minnesota less than 24 hours after the offer. Macy had earned offers thus far from Air Force, Army, Navy, North Dakota and South Dakota. The rising junior weighed around 190-195 lbs last fall, but has completely reworked his body and weighed in yesterday at 220 lbs. He tested really well and showed physicality in drills.
Here's some of what Macy told GopherIllustrated prior to his camp performance yesterday.
"I'm hoping to prove on Sunday at camp that I belong in the conversation as one of the top players in Minnesota. To show what I’ve done all winter, how I’ve changed my body and how I’ve improved my speed and movements. Every coach all winter has been shocked at the improvement so now it’s time to put it out on the field. Last season, I finished the season around 195 lbs. I'm now at 220 lbs, so I've gained 25 pounds of good weight."
Minnesota Hard Commit
Macy becomes the 15th commitment for Minnesota in their 2024 recruiting class as he joins quarterback Drake Lindsey, running back Jaydon Wright, wide receivers Dallas Sims, Jalen Smith and Corey Smith, tight end Julian Johnson, defensive linemen Riley Sunram, Mo Saine, Jide Abasiri, linebackers Mason Carrier and Brady Pretzlaff, corner Simon Seidl and safeties Koi Perich and Zahir Rainer.
This Minnesota offer is one that Macy had been waiting for.
"Ultimately that’s the goal. That’s the dream. There’s nothing else that would compare. It would be the biggest moment of my life and it would give me the opportunity to stay home and play in front of friends and family every Saturday. Every step along the way I’ve loved everything about their program so that would be an absolute dream."

MINNESOTA — Chanhassen, Minnesota is among the best places to live in the United States, according to a new ranking released this week by Money.
The 2022 ranking of 50 Best Places to Live in the U.S. includes cities that offer the best in what matters most to residents: economic opportunities, quality of life, and diversity, according to Money. This year, researchers also set out to feature a more diverse list of cities than in past years.
“We kept returning to the question, ‘best places to live for whom?’” researchers said on Money’s website. “(Previous cities were) often quaint, affordable — and unintentionally yet overwhelmingly white. We wanted to create a more welcoming list for a broader group of people this year, so we restructured our data gathering and ranking processes to reflect that priority.”
Chanhassen ranked the highest on the list among cities in Minnesota. With a population of 27,195 people, Chanhassen residents have a median household income of $127,000 while the city’s unemployment rate is 1.7 percent.
“While Chanhassen’s sheer volume of children-friendly activities and walkable downtown may make it seem like a shoo-in for our list, it's the high-quality schools and relatively affordable housing that make it one of Money’s best places to live,” Money reports.
To determine the cities on this year’s list, Money analyzed data in nine different areas: cost of living, diversity, economic opportunity, education, fun and amenities, health and safety, the housing market, income and personal finance, and quality of life.
Data was collected from several sources including the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
Read more about the methodology for Money’s Best Places To Live.
The top city on this year’s list is Atlanta, Georgia.
“This is no accident,” researchers said. “At a time when people are becoming much more introspective about their role in society, our goal this year was to name a number one where anyone can feel like they belong. And for that, Atlanta is hard to beat.”
Following Atlanta is Tempe, Arizona, at No. 2, and Kirkland, Washington, at No. 3.
