What Is Semaglutide Weight Loss Injections?
Semaglutide, under the brand name Ozempic, was originally developed as a treatment for type 2 diabetes but has also found a niche in helping people lose weight rapidly. It belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, or GLP-1 RAs. It mimics the GLP-1 hormone, prompting the body to produce more insulin, reduce blood sugar, and control blood sugar spikes. This improves insulin resistance, and energy by allowing calories and fat to be burned, and achieves more consistent energy levels. Higher levels of GLP-1 also lessen cravings and hunger. It has an impact on the brain’s hunger centers, lowering hunger, appetite, and cravings. Reduced hunger, prolonged fullness, and ultimately weight loss are the results. When used to treat obesity, this medicine should be used with frequent, healthful activity and a better diet.
Who Is Semaglutide Weight Loss Injections For?
Everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status, can benefit semaglutide weight loss injections. Those who struggle with obesity or have health difficulties related to their weight should use semaglutide. It’s important to note that semaglutide weight loss injections are not an appropriate treatment for people who are for a short-term weight loss result. It is also not suitable for anyone looking to lose a small amount of weight, or for anyone who has a body mass index (BMI) of 27 or below. Patients who have a history of gallstones, pancreatitis, or risk factors for thyroid cancer are not eligible to take semaglutide. Patients with a history of allergic reactions to semaglutide or any other components of Ozempic should also avoid the injections. It is not advisable for women that are pregnant to take Ozempic.
How Should Semaglutide Be Used?
Before self-administering, ask an expert at Infinity MedSpa to show you how to properly self-administer before attempting to do it yourself.
Semaglutide weight loss injections come in a liquid dosage pen that should not be frozen and instead kept in the refrigerator. Always make sure to inspect the semaglutide solution before injecting as it should be clear, colorless, and free of particles. If Semaglutide appears colored, foggy, thickened, includes solid particles, or is past its expiration date, do not use it. After inspection, you can inject room temperature semaglutide into your upper arm, thigh, or abdomen area. Be sure to change (rotate) injection sites each week so that you are not injecting into the same area every week. In doing so, this reduces your risk of getting pits in your skin or thickened skin with skin lumps. If you need to change the day of the week that you administer semaglutide, ensure that it has been two or more days since your last injection before doing so. After injection, always remove the needle right after and dispose of them in a puncture-resistant container. Do not ever reuse needles and never share the needles or pens.

How Quickly Does Semaglutide Work?
Many people find that their appetite reduces fairly early on after the weight loss injections. Although some individuals start seeing weight loss after just the first dose, each individual reacts differently to their treatment. The full effect of semaglutide can take 8 weeks or more as this is a long-acting medication. Patients will start their Ozempic treatment at lower does for the first 4 weeks to reduce the effects of possible negative side effects. The dose then gradually increases based on your toleration. By suppressing your appetite and increasing the feeling of fullness, it can reduce your calorie intake and allow you to lose up to one to two pounds a week. The New England Journal of Medicine published a study that showed that after four weeks of taking semaglutide, patients had experienced a 2% reduction in body weight. The loss continued, with patients losing an average of 14.9% of their body weight.
Effectiveness varies from person to person and may take longer due to unique factors that include age, weight, body fluid, medications, kidney or liver function, or other medical conditions. It may also take longer depending on how quickly you are able to achieve final maintenance does. It is important to commit yourself to a timeline of several months for the best results. Many people become discouraged when weight loss starts out slowly. But, it’s important to remember that although several months may seem like a long time, it is a healthy way of managing your weight and the changes you are making is a journey for the better.
