What is the Best Weight Loss Strategy for Me?

Jun 28, 2023 | Semaglutide, Weight Loss


Maintaining your ideal weight can seem like an impossible quest. Weight loss strategies that work for some people may not help others. Other people may find that despite doing everything “right”, their weight remains stubbornly higher than they like.

Semaglutide can offer the answer to weight loss when other methods fail. How does this new weight loss treatment work?

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide began as a treatment for type two diabetes. It’s part of a class of drugs called GLP-1 agonists, which means it increases the release of insulin. This blocks the rise of your blood sugar, which has an effect on how fast your stomach empties as well as your appetite.

How does Semaglutide Work to Create Weight Loss?

Semaglutide slows down gastric emptying, which is how fast your stomach clears out the food you have eaten. When your stomach empties more slowly, you will feel full for longer. This can help prevent the hunger urges that can sabotage weight loss.

This treatment also helps suppress your appetite. You will want to eat less frequently than you ordinarily do. This can help you maintain a healthy diet that promotes weight loss, especially when combined with exercise!

Is Semaglutide Safe to Use for Weight Loss?

Semaglutide has been approved by the FDA for weight loss usage. Clinical trials have shown more than half of the subjects lost at least 10% of their initial body weight, and some lost 15%. It works best when you combine it with a healthy diet and appropriate exercise.

Are You a Good Candidate for Semaglutide Treatments?

Before you begin these treatments, your medspa medical professional will conduct a thorough examination and go over your comprehensive health history. In general, good candidates meet one of these two requirements:

  • Have a body-mass index (BMI) of 30 or above
  • Have a BMI of more than 27 as well as a weight-related health issue, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
