Achieve Your Ultimate Wellness With Derma Tech!
You want to live a happier and healthier lifestyle – and Derma Tech can help you accomplish exactly that. Whether you’re looking to lose weight or feel more energetic (or both!), the specialists at Derma Tech in Joplin, Missouri can tailor a treatment to help you realize your exact goal.
Take a look at two of our most popular wellness options to see which one is right for you:
Medical Weight Loss With Phentermine
If you want to commit to a healthy lifestyle and lose weight, Derma Tech can help! Our medical weight loss program combines a nutrition and exercise plan with phentermine, a prescription-only weight-loss drug that helps people quickly lose unwanted pounds.
The best candidates for our medical weight loss program are individuals who have lack of success with diet, difficulty controlling diet, and those who meet certain health criteria. Your Derma Tech medical specialist will carefully observe and track your weight loss so as to ensure you’re safe and healthy throughout the entire program. Most patients can expect to see dramatic weight loss within the first month, so it’s important to follow the carefully constructed nutrition plan.
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy With Bio(TE)
Patients who are feeling sluggish, have a low sex drive, or feel tired all the time may benefit from bio-identical hormone therapy. Bio-identical hormones are exactly what they sound like – hormones that replicate the primary functions of estrogen and testosterone. Bio(TE) hormones are naturally derived from plants and medically monitored by your Derma Tech medical specialist.
Bio-identical hormone therapy can help elevate the mood, increase sex drive, improve concentration and focus, and sky-rocket energy levels.

Vitamin B12 Injection – $35
Vitamin B-12 also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production. It is the largest and most structurally complicated vitamin and very important to overall health.
MIC B12 Injection – $43
Vitamin B-12, also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially affecting DNA synthesis and regulation, but also fatty acid synthesis and energy production. It is the largest and most structurally complicated vitamin and very important to overall health. But what is the MIC part of this almost painless injection? Methionine, Inositol, and Choline are “lipotropic” substances that play important roles in fat metabolism, liver function, and more.
- Methionine is an amino acid that reduces fat, aids in lowering cholesterol and helps synthesize other amino acids needed by the body. It is also one of the nutrients required for the body to produce choline. A deficiency of methionine will adversely affect fat metabolism by limiting choline production. The body cannot produce methionine-it must be supplied through diet and supplementation
- Inositol metabolizes fats and cholesterol and helps transport fats in the blood system. Thus, inositol can aid in the redistribution of body fat and can help to lower cholesterol levels by moving cholesterol to the liver where it can be excreted. A deficiency of inositol produces an accumulation of triglycerides in the liver, which impairs normal liver function and can lead to weight gain. The body is able to manufacture its own supply of inositol.
- Choline works in combination with inositol and emulsifies cholesterol so that it does not settle on arterial walls. It also works with methionine to detoxify the by-products of protein metabolism. Without choline, fats can become trapped in the liver and block metabolic functions. The body can produce choline, with the help of vitamin B-12, folic acid and methionine. However, the rate your body produces choline may not be adequate to meet daily metabolic needs, particularly during weight loss when a lot of body fat must be broken down.
- In summary, the MIC ingredients all burn fat, reduce cholesterol, and clear fats out of the liver. The injection is a good source of methionine, which cannot be made by the body and is necessary for the production of choline. It is also a good source of inositol and choline, which the body does not make in sufficient quantities for weight loss. Together with B-12 this “combo” gives an energy boost, fights cholesterol and plaque buildup, and also helps target those extra pounds, which seem so hard to lose.
