If you’re struggling to lose those extra pounds, you are not alone. Approximately 70 percent of adults in the US are considered overweight or obese. MorEsthetics is pleased to introduce semaglutide, a breakthrough treatment that has changed the landscape of weight loss solutions, delivering real results that last. Take control of your weight loss journey and reduce your risk of future health complications!
Semaglutide is a small protein or peptide that helps activate metabolic pathways to increase blood sugar metabolism and help reduce appetite. It was long used to treat type 2 diabetes under the name Ozempic before becoming one of the most sought-after weight loss solutions.
As physicians prescribed semaglutide for their patients with type 2 diabetes, they noticed an unexpected side effect – significant weight loss. Further research and studies showed that semaglutide is safe for weight loss and was recently FDA-approved for chronic weight management in adults under the name Wegovy.
How Does Semaglutide Weight Loss Work?
Semaglutide is in a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, which mimic the hormone GLP-1 the body naturally produces. GLP-1 lowers blood sugar levels after you eat. It also slows down gastric emptying, or the emptying of your stomach, leaving you with a sense that you’re full. The result is a decreased calorie intake.
By reducing your appetite and keeping you in fat-burning mode, semaglutide helps you shed unwanted pounds without worrying about dehydration or losing muscle mass. While this weight loss program has no food restrictions or exercise requirements, we highly recommend you maintain a healthy, balanced diet and increased physical activity to boost your overall health.
Are You a Candidate for Semaglutide Weight Loss?
A patient with a history or family history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia type-2 cannot be considered for semaglutide treatment. Individuals with a BMI of 27 who have failed reasonable efforts of exercise and diet will be considered. Our highly experienced providers will help determine if semaglutide weight loss and management is right for you.
We will start with a consultation to determine your unique needs and create a custom treatment plan to achieve your desired results. We will begin with a low dose of semaglutide to minimize common side effects and gradually increase it until you reach the optimal dosage for weight loss. We will closely monitor you weekly and adjust your dosage as needed for the best results.
While results may vary, studies show that weekly semaglutide injections are highly effective at triggering weight loss. In one clinical study, individuals treated with semaglutide lost an average of 16 percent body weight without changing their diet or exercise habits.
Aside from its weight loss benefits, semaglutide lowers the risk of many chronic diseases linked to obesity, including high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
