Semaglutide GLP-1 in
Gilbert, Arizona

Sometimes diet and exercise are not enough. Sometimes getting rid of weight requires a little extra help. Semaglutide GLP-1 has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of obesity and chronic weight management. Now, at DrSkin Med Spa, our experienced medical professionals utilize this FDA-approved drug to help our patients achieve their weight loss goals and improve overall health.

What is Semaglutide GLP-1 and How Does It Work?

Semaglutide is one of the many groundbreaking medications that have recently been approved by the FDA for the treatment of obesity. It is also utilized as an antidiabetic medication for individuals with type 2 diabetes. As a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue, Semaglutide mimics the effects of GLP-1, a hormone naturally released in the intestine that aids in digestion and appetite suppression. By triggering the release of insulin, blocking sugar sources, and slowing down digestion, Semaglutide helps individuals feel fuller for longer periods, reducing cravings and caloric intake.

What is Wegovy?

Wegovy is another form of Semaglutide medication that has been designed specifically for adults who are overweight, obese, or may have weight-related medical problems. Wegovy works the same way as Semaglutide—it effectively reduces appetite and hunger, stimulates insulin secretion, and promotes healthy weight loss. When used alongside a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity, Wegovy can help individuals achieve their weight loss goals.

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic has caught national-level attention for its purported effects, but what is it? It is a medication primarily prescribed for managing blood glucose levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes. It is 95% identical to human GLP-1 and works similarly to naturally occurring GLP-1 in the body. Ozempic increases the levels of incretins, which help the body produce more insulin when needed. Additionally, it suppresses glucose production by the liver, reduces appetite, and slows down the movement of food in the gut, leading to lower blood glucose levels and weight loss.

What are the Benefits of Semaglutide for Weight Loss?

The advantages of Semaglutide medications go beyond shedding pounds and sustaining weight loss. These medications have been found to have a positive impact on your well-being. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Significant Weight Loss:
    • Patients who have undergone treatment with Semaglutide have experienced an average weight loss of around 35 lbs, or approximately 15% of their body weight. This substantial reduction in weight not only improves physical appearance but also has a positive impact on overall health.
  • Improved Blood Pressure:
    • High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a significant risk factor for various cardiovascular conditions. Semaglutide medications have demonstrated the ability to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressures. By achieving lower blood pressure levels, individuals can reduce the strain on their cardiovascular system and decrease the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • Reduced Waist Circumference:
    • Waist size is associated with your risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. With medications like Wegovy, Ozempic, and Semaglutide, you can reduce abdominal fat and also reduce your risk for obesity-related complications. 
  • Glycemic Control
    • For individuals with type 2 diabetes, the glycemic control effects make Semaglutide an excellent option. This occurs because Semaglutide medications stimulate insulin secretion and reduce glucagon secretion. 
  • Improved Lipid Profile:
    • Semaglutide medications have been associated with improvements in fasting plasma glucose and fasting cholesterol levels. By reducing glucose production by the liver and promoting better lipid metabolism, these medications may help you achieve healthier cholesterol levels. This is significant as abnormal cholesterol levels are a risk factor for heart disease and other cardiovascular conditions.

What Can Someone Expect From a Semaglutide GLP-1 Treatment?

Semaglutide, Wegovy, and Ozempic are administered weekly through a tiny, painless injection under the skin. At DrSkin Med Spa, our skilled medical professionals will guide you through the proper administration technique and provide ongoing support throughout your treatment. Regular check-ins and personalized care are integral parts of your Semaglutide journey, ensuring that you receive the most effective and safe treatment.

What Results Can You Expect?

Results from Semaglutide treatments have been remarkable to say the least. Patients have experienced substantial weight loss, improved metabolic health, and reduced waist circumference. After 68 weeks of treatment, approximately 83% of adults taking Semaglutide achieved a weight loss of 5% or more, compared to only 31% in the placebo group. The comprehensive effects of Semaglutide medications contribute to long-lasting and sustainable weight loss results.

While results are going to be different for each person, you can anticipate healthy weight loss when paired with lifestyle improvements. Our dedicated team can help you make these changes and become the version of yourself you have always wished to be!

Are There Any Contraindications?

While Semaglutide medications have shown significant benefits, it is important to note that there may be contraindications for certain individuals. Factors such as a history of hormone-related cancers, active liver disease, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or a history of blood clots may impact the suitability of these medications. It is crucial to consult with a qualified healthcare professional at DrSkin Med Spa to assess your individual situation and determine if Semaglutide treatments are appropriate for you.
