Now you may finally lose the weight and keep it off! Semaglutide is an injectable prescription medication for adults with obesity (BMI ≥30) or overweight (excess weight) (BMI ≥27) who also have weight-related medical problems used with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.
Our Semaglutide formulation is $400 per month no matter how long the patient is on the program and is available now. Patients who purchase an Emsculpt Neo package with the Semaglutide Program will receive 10% off all Semaglutide and SuperMic injections.
Semaglutide is a modified molecule our bodies make, called a GLP-1 analog. It works by increasing insulin production and lowers glucagon secretion as well as targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. A small change in the molecule allows the drug to last weeks in our bodies rather than the natural version our bodies make, which lasts minutes. Originally used for diabetes and sold under the name Ozempic®. In June 2021, Wegovy, brand name Semaglutide, was FDA approved for weight loss. Semaglutide is a subcutaneous injection administered by our trained staff.
Semaglutide acts in the following ways:
• Delays how quickly our stomachs digest food. Leading to a feeling of fullness and satisfaction with smaller meal sizes.
• Slows intestinal motility so you will feel fuller longer after meals.
• Lowers blood sugars, in part by reducing the production of sugar in the liver.
• Stimulates insulin secretion by the pancreas.
Benefits of Semaglutide
• Decreased appetite and cravings
• Weight loss
• Improved blood glucose control
The most common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, and/or constipation. This can be alleviated by cleaning up the diet and trying to eat unprocessed foods. Try and stay away from greasy and processed foods. A small amount of B12 is added to the Semaglutide to reduce nausea but we highly encourage a separate Super B Complex injection, that we call SuperMic, with every Semaglutide injection as this has reduced nausea more successfully. Patients also report acid reflux, stomach pain, and vomiting. The risk of serious side effects increases in patients with hypoglycemia, kidney problems, and/or a history of allergic reactions.
Semaglutide is injected once per week in the abdomen using tiny insulin syringes.
Our medical weight loss package includes a weekly visit for your injection, optional SuperMic, and a weigh in.
Each participant will get a Styku assessment at their first visit and one week post last injection.
