Semaglutide

If you've had trouble losing weight in the past through fad diets and hardcore exercise, we are happy to introduce medical weightloss. At our medical spa we offer Semaglutide, which has shown considerable potential in helping patients maintain their weight over the long run. Contact us to schedule your free consultation today to see if Semaglutide is right for you.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication belonging to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (glp-1) receptor agonists that acts on the brain, pancreas and GI system to help with satiety and gastric absorption of food. In the past, Semaglutide was used in patients with type-2 diabetes to improve glycemic control. There have been many clinical studies that show Semaglutide as an effective weight loss solution. Patients can expect:

✓ Decreased appetite
✓ Improved blood sugar control
✓ Increased fat loss
✓ Lower risk of certainhealth conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol

While Semaglutide is a reliable long-term weight management solution, we believe it works best as an adjunct to diet and exercise.

How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide works by regulating food intake by reducing feelings of hunger. It does this by mimicking the hormone GLP-1 which regulates hunger. Semaglutide also helps you feel more full and satisfied after a meal by delaying gastric emptying.

Semaglutide has been proven to be extremely effective at reducing weight, especially when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. A recent study of almost 2,000 people with a BMI over 30 were administered this treatment along with exercise. The results showed a mean decrease in body weight of 14.9% over 68 weeks, compared to the placebo group which saw only a 2.4% mean decrease in weight.

How effective is Semaglutide for Weightloss?

Semaglutide has been shown to be a highly successful weight reduction therapy that is both safe and effective. We at Skin Envy Med Spa are aware that the process of losing weight is different for each individual and calls for individualized attention because of this. In order for you to effectively accomplish your objectives, the knowledgeable members of our staff are here to provide you with the assistance and guidance you need at each stage of the process.

How long does Semaglutide Treatment last?

Most Semaglutide treatments will take place consistently for up to 16 weeks. After this period or time, clients can receive periodic treatment as needed. However, the exact amount of time this medication is administered will depend on your goals and health. Many clients can expect to lose up to 15-20% of their initial weight in less than a year.

It's important to note that Semaglutide is not a quick fix for weight loss. it takes time and effort to see results, and it's important to make lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise in order to maximize the benefits of the medication.

To be honest going into this journey I was a little nervous. But it was such a smooth process and Deb Baker, and her team are amazing! They walk you through all the steps and things that may or may not occur while you’re on semaglutide. And listen to you and how you feel and your goals in mind.

 

I seriously was just hoping to lose about 10 pounds on this journey and I exceeded my expectations! With losing 20 pounds, and I couldn’t be happier. I have more energy, feel great and can keep up with my kids. Of course, each week was a little different than the last but once I got use to it I was golden. Plus, I love that some of the Skin Envy team is on this journey with you and you can share your experiences as you go. 

 

I have changed how I view food and I am eating much healthier these days. And plan to stick with it. I don’t regret my decision to try semaglutide one bit. 

 

Thank you, Skin Envy Dermatology
