What are Semaglutide injections?

Semaglutide is a prescription medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Although it was initially developed for the management of type 2 diabetes, Semaglutide has been found to have a significant impact on weight loss as well. It works by mimicking the effects of a naturally occurring hormone called GLP-1, which helps regulate blood sugar levels, appetite, and food intake. When administered via subcutaneous injections, Semaglutide acts on the brain's appetite centers, leading to reduced hunger and increased feelings of fullness.

What should I expect?

Before beginning Semaglutide injections, our skilled providers will assess your medical history, current health status, and weight loss goals. If deemed suitable, we will prescribe the appropriate dosage and guide you through the injection process. Semaglutide injections are typically self-administered once a week using a pre-filled pen. The injection is administered subcutaneously in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. The results of Semaglutide injections can be noticeable within a few weeks to a couple of months, depending on the individual's response and adherence to the treatment plan.

It is important to note that Semaglutide is not a quick fix but rather a tool that, when combined with a balanced diet and regular physical activity, can lead to sustainable weight loss over time.

Clinical studies have demonstrated that the weight loss achieved with Semaglutide can be maintained as long as the healthy lifestyle changes are continued.

What is the recovery process like?

The recovery process after a Semaglutide injection is generally straightforward and hassle-free. Most individuals experience minimal discomfort during and after the injection. There may also be some redness or slight swelling at the injection site, but these symptoms typically dissipate relatively quickly. Semaglutide injections allow for continued daily activities without any major disruptions, making it perfect for patients with busy schedules.
