We started in 2012 as a hormone replacement clinic. Over time, we added many aesthetic services to help our hormone patients look better as they began to feel better. In early 2015, our lease was coming to an end, and we were searching for a place to really build our business. We came across an ad for Tropical Minnesota, a tanning salon that was for sale. Believing that this would be a good business decision, we purchased Tropical Minnesota and combined tanning and massage with our other offerings as we moved from Deephaven to downtown Hopkins.
Prior to Integrity, Dr. Wiita had owned a small weight loss clinic in Eden Prairie. The patients did wonderfully with weight loss, but the location was difficult to find, and Dr. Wiita lacked the marketing skills to bring in enough business to survive. She has always been passionate about bringing back weight loss, but it was important to pay attention to other details of the business first to avoid repeating the difficulties of the past.
Once our Hopkins building was transformed from a tanning salon to a beautiful MediSpa, the time was right to focus on bringing back weight loss. Dr. Wiita understands how excess weight can be a barrier to feeling good about yourself, and more importantly, how the extra pounds can cause you to develop dangerous health problems over time. Just like our building was transformed into something beautiful, we want to help you find your inner beauty and bring back your outer beauty as you go through your own transformation.
We are Certified as the only Clean Start Weight Loss Clinic in Minnesota, which is very exciting for us. Our ideal client is someone who has 25 or more pounds to lose and who has given it a valiant effort on their own, but had difficulty either losing the weight or keeping it off afterward.
Our Clean Start Weight Loss program is very effective at helping you lose weight. After that we will help with weight maintenance by using MedGem indirect calorimetry to determine your resting metabolic rate and offering you detailed guidance on how to take in the correct number of calories in the long term. We also have the tools and skills to treat some of the damage left behind after having been overweight...skin tightening, stretch mark treatment, cellulite treatment, and more. Once all that is taken care of, then you can treat your beautiful new body to some of the fun things we do...things like teeth whitening and tanning or spray tanning.
