Semaglutide for Weight Loss
Suppressing the appetite through prescription medication is one effective way to eat less and thus weigh less. We are pleased to offer semaglutide as part of our customized weight loss program. It is often prescribed for obese individuals who fail to lose weight through exercise and diet alone.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a prescription drug that has been FDA-approved for long-term weight management. It also plays a role in treating Type 2 diabetes. As a weight loss aid, it works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that control appetite and food intake. Semaglutide helps the pancreas release the right amount of insulin to move sugar from the blood into other areas where it is used for energy. As part of a plan that includes a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, patients can lose significant weight on semaglutide.
Who Can Use Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a long-acting, once-a-week injection that effectively suppresses the appetite. It is prescribed as a weight management tool for obese adults or overweight adults with weight-related conditions (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and more). We recommend taking semaglutide in combination with our skinny shot. B-complex in the skinny shot helps prevent any unwanted side effects from the semaglutide.
Weight loss can be even more successful when semaglutide is used in conjunction with fat lipolysis. Fat lipolysis is an effective, nonsurgical treatment that permanently destroys fat cells, making them unable to ever store or accumulate fat again.
Before prescribing semaglutide, our practitioner will assess your health condition, blood work, and any other medications you may be taking to determine if semaglutide is right for you.
