Are you struggling with stubborn fat that just won’t seem to go away despite all your efforts? Are you searching for a simple, healthy, and long-term solution for losing weight and achieving a slimmer figure? With all the invasive, non-surgical, and laser treatments emerging on the market today, it can make it confusing to find the treatment best suited for you. Many patients that come to Infinity MedSpa located in Sudbury, Massachusetts are searching for a non-invasive and safe solution for losing weight and maintaining their figure. For patients seeking a healthier and effective remedy for losing weight and keeping it off, we now offer exceptional Semaglutide treatments.
Semaglutide is a revolutionary drug that has recently been approved by the FDA for weight loss treatments. It is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist that was originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes. However, during clinical trials, researchers found that patients who took semaglutide lost significant amounts of weight. It gained recent notoriety when it was revealed that Kim Kardashian used semaglutide to drop a significant amount of weight in order to fit into the infamous Marilyn Monroe dress at the 2022 Met Gala.
What is Semaglutide for Weight Loss?
Semaglutide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist that was first approved by the FDA in 2017 to treat type 2 diabetes. It works by mimicking the effects of the GLP-1 hormone in the body, which helps to regulate blood sugar levels. However, during clinical trials, researchers found that Semaglutide also had an unexpected side effect – it helped patients to lose weight.
How Does the Treatment Process Work?
Like with any treatment, an initial consultation is required in order to determine if you are a candidate for treatment and to curate a plan for your specific needs.
Semaglutide is delivered to the bloodstream through injections. Once delivered, Semaglutide works by suppressing appetite and reducing food cravings. It slows down the movement of food through the stomach and intestines, which makes patients feel fuller for longer periods of time. In addition, it increases the production of insulin, which helps to regulate blood sugar levels and prevent the onset of diabetes. Patients take a once-weekly injection of semaglutide, which is administered subcutaneously. For optimal results, it is suggested that patients continue treatments over the course of time to maintain the effects of semaglutide and prevent fat and weight gain from returning.
How Long Does it Take to See Results?
The length of time it takes to see results from semaglutide treatment varies from patient to patient. However, most patients will begin to see weight loss within the first 12 weeks of treatment. During clinical trials, patients who took semaglutide lost an average of 15-20% of their body weight over the course of one year.
What are the Benefits of Semaglutide?
Semaglutide has several benefits for patients who are struggling with weight loss. First, it is a non-surgical option that does not require any invasive procedures. Second, it has been shown to be highly effective at helping patients lose weight, with many patients losing up to 20% of their body weight over the course of a year. Finally, it can help to improve overall health by reducing the risk of obesity-related health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
Other benefits include:
- Quick treatment times
- No required downtime
- Quick and lasting results
Who is a Candidate for Semaglutide Treatment?
Semaglutide treatment is typically recommended for patients who have a BMI of 30 or higher, or for patients who have a BMI of 27 or higher and have one or more obesity-related health conditions. Patients who are interested in semaglutide treatment should consult with their healthcare provider or one of our professionals to determine if they are a candidate.
