Semaglutide is an injectable prescription diabetes medication that you may know as Ozempic, which is FDA-approved and proven to help overweight adults lose weight and keep the weight off. This once-weekly injection for chronic weight management may be the answer for adults who are overweight or obese and have at least one weight-related health condition.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is the first approved drug for chronic weight management in obese or overweight adults as a weight loss program. Approximately 70% of American adults are obese or overweight, a severe health issue associated with heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancer. Losing 5% to 10% of body weight through diet and exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, but diet and exercise alone are not always guaranteed to address the issue.

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that influences areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. Additionally, Semaglutide encourages your pancreas to release the correct amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Using Semaglutide to increase insulin secretion while slowing down how fast your stomach empties food works in the following ways:

  • Slowed digestion
  • Reduced appetite
  • Stabilized blood sugar & energy

A suppressed appetite means you feel full longer, which helps you eat less while losing weight. On average, you can lose up to two pounds per week with a once-per-week injectable, avoiding the expense and discomfort of invasive surgery.

Semaglutide FAQ

How will I feel?

Many patients experience a reduced appetite, an extra energy boost, and enhanced motivation. In some cases, nausea, fatigue, headache, and gastric discomfort are reported. Rest assured that our providers will do everything possible to reduce potential side effects.

What should I be mindful of?

Keep in mind that Semaglutide is unsuitable for immunocompromised patients with a history of pancreatitis or thyroid cancer. Because of its powerful glucose-lowering effect, alcohol use is not recommended. Semaglutide and other medications of the same class (GLP-1Ras) have an overall favorable risk/benefit profile for qualified candidates, meaning that you can expect optimal results with minimal risk.

Can I buy Semaglutide over the counter?

No. Semaglutide is a prescription medicine.

Are there other treatments that can help me achieve my goals even faster?

Yes! EON Body Contouring is the leading FDA-cleared laser technology on the market for permanent fat loss, offering an average of 22% fat reduction. IV therapy (ask about our Lipo/MIC injection!) and the support of a Functional Health Coach (providing recommendations on supplements, best foods to eat, lab reviews, etc.) are other excellent ways to help you reach your aesthetic goals while getting to the root cause of your health concerns.
