What is Medical Weight Loss with Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a new FDA-approved drug that is helping people lose weight and reach their ideal size. As we age, it can be difficult to lose weight and keep the pounds away. That’s where Semalgutide can help.
This treatment previously was used for individuals who have diabetes, but the benefits extend to anyone who is interested in losing a significant amount of weight. It is often prescribed to individuals who have had difficulty losing weight and with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 27 or higher.
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.
Benefits of Semaglutide Injections
Semaglutide injections offer many benefits to qualified candidates, including:
- Reduce weight significantly
- Help you to look and feel beautiful
- Reduce appetite
- Leave you feeling more full for longer periods of time
- Regulate blood sugar
- Requires only one treatment per week
What To Expect
During your initial consultation, your medical expert at Day Dreams Med Spa will conduct a thorough health history, determine if you are a candidate for Semaglutide treatment, and answer any questions you might have about the treatment. If found to be eligible, you will have the option of receiving in-office injections or taking vials of the medicine home with you.
Semaglutide typically takes between “2 to 4 weeks” until clients begin to notice a reduction in weight. The amount of Semalgutide administered will gradually increase as the weeks progress.
Your medical expert at DayDreams Med Spa will most likely recommend you combine treatments with consistent exercise and a healthy diet. Studies show that Semaglutide is most effective when paired with these lifestyle changes.
How Long Does Semaglutide Treatment Last?
Most Semaglutide treatments will take place consistently for up to 16 weeks. After this period of 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% of their initial weight within one year.
What are the Potential Side Effects?
The potential side effects of Semaglutide include fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, changes in mood, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, and heartburn, among others. More severe side effects are rare but can include allergic reactions, kidney damage, gallstones, pancreatitis, and more. “Most experiences are very mild or no side effects at all.”
Your medical expert at DayDreams Med Spa will discuss the potential side effects and risks with you in detail before beginning treatment.
How is Semaglutide Administered?
Our clients have the option of receiving injections on a weekly basis in our office or taking home vials of the medication with them to take on a weekly basis.
Where Should I Store My Semaglutide?
If you decide to administer your own treatments, your medication will need to be stored in the refrigerator (between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit). It will last for 56 days.
What if I Miss a Dose?
If you forget to take a dose of your medication at home, take the dose as soon as you remember. Then continue taking the next dose at the original time as planned. However, if you forget a dose for more than five days, do not take the missed dose.
