What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an increasingly popular FDA-approved treatment that can help you control chronic weight management, increase insulin production, and reduce your appetite. It is derived from a Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that is found in your digestive system and plays a huge role in controlling your appetite and assisting in digestion.

The treatment is performed once a week in your own home which requires an injection of the product. When combined with a healthy diet and routine exercise, this treatment can help adult patients lose almost 15% of their body weight, and some adolescent patients lose almost 16%.

Semaglutide FAQs

Is Semaglutide painful?

Most patients do not consider Semaglutide as a “painful” treatment, but it does require administration through injections. At first, some patients may find the injections to be uncomfortable, but it is a brief sensation and most patients can get used to the feeling after multiple uses.

How many appointments will I need?

Every four weeks or so, we will have you return so we can observe any progress and prescribe you the next dosage level. We expect our patients to continue their treatment for at least four months.

How long until I see results?

Every patient will have a different experience as your body can have a completely different reaction to the injections from another patient. We encourage you to maintain constant communication with our team so we can make the appropriate adjustments and still help you achieve your goals.

On average, patients should start seeing better results after about four months of continuous usage.

Can I combine Semaglutide with other procedures?

Yes, you can! If you plan on having any body contouring procedures, like KYBELLA or a Tummy Tuck, we encourage you to wait until you are at your target weight goal. If you would like to do some other non-surgical treatments like BOTOX or a Chemical Peel for smoother and more youthful skin, please bring this up during your consultation. Our team will be more than happy to offer their expert suggestions.
