Shed It Off semaglutide Injections


Our MEDSPA in Greenville, NC offers a Medical weight loss program assisted with the use of Semaglutide a medication that was initially developed to treat type 2 diabetes. However, it has also shown promising results for weight management in clinical trials. Here's some information about semaglutide and its use for weight loss:

  1. Mechanism of Action: Semaglutide belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). It works by mimicking the action of a hormone called GLP-1, which helps regulate blood sugar levels and appetite. Semaglutide slows down digestion, increases feelings of fullness, and reduces food intake, leading to potential weight loss.
  2. Clinical Trials: In clinical studies, semaglutide has demonstrated effectiveness in promoting weight loss. One notable trial called the STEP program evaluated the effects of semaglutide on weight management. The results showed that participants receiving semaglutide experienced significant weight loss compared to those receiving a placebo.
  3. FDA Approval: In June 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a higher-dose formulation of semaglutide (2.4 mg once weekly) under the brand name Wegovy for chronic weight management in adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 27 kg/m² or greater, who have at least one weight-related comorbidity (e.g., hypertension, type 2 diabetes) or a BMI of 30 kg/m² or greater.
  4. Treatment Duration and Monitoring: Semaglutide is administered as a once-weekly injection. It is important to note that its use for weight loss typically involves long-term treatment, as discontinuing the medication may result in weight regain. Regular monitoring, including blood tests and follow-up visits with a healthcare professional, is recommended during treatment.
  5. Side Effects: Like any medication, semaglutide may cause side effects. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. These side effects are usually mild and tend to diminish over time. However, it's essential to discuss potential risks and benefits with a healthcare provider, as individual responses to medications can vary.
  6. Individual Considerations: Semaglutide for weight loss is generally intended for individuals with obesity or overweight who have not achieved sufficient results with lifestyle modifications alone. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional who can assess your specific health situation, determine if semaglutide is appropriate for you, and guide you through its use.

As always, it's crucial to consult with a healthcare professional. Here at BEAUTE PAR CO, you will undergo a medical evaluation before initiation of any weight loss program, weight loss medication or treatment to ensure it aligns with your individual health needs and goals.
