Have you been struggling to manage your weight? Learn about Semaglutide, a new and highly effective weight loss peptide.
Semaglutide (sold under the brand names Wegovy or Ozempic) is an FDA-approved weight loss medication that falls under the category of GLP-1 receptor agonists. This class of medications has been around since 2005.
How much weight can I expect to lose?
Semaglutide was FDA-approved for weight loss in 2021 and it has been shown to reduce body weight by at least 15% in 8 weeks, with many more of our patients losing more than 20%.
Don’t let the word “injectable” scare you! Semaglutide injections are administered weekly with a painless subcutaneous injection (not much thicker than a human hair).
This under-the-skin injection is the first FDA-approved drug for chronic weight management in obese or overweight adults since 2014. Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. There are no specific dietary restrictions with this doctor-backed, personalized weight loss program.
How does Semaglutide work?
Semaglutide can help reduce appetite and cravings, which helps individuals control their calorie intake. The medication also improves insulin sensitivity to regulate blood sugar, which can impact how effectively the body uses fat for energy.
How long can I take Semaglutide?
Most people use Semaglutide injections from 2 months up to a year, depending on how much weight they need to lose. We can tailor your program to match your weight loss goals.
