Weight loss can be a frustrating undertaking, but its rewards impact not only your physical health, but your mental health too. For people who have tried to manage their weight reduction journey with diet and exercise, only to experience frustration and defeat, an injectable weight loss medication, semaglutide, offers a safe, tested path to a more active life.

Semaglutide for Weight Reduction

Semaglutide is part of a family of medications traditionally used to treat diabetes. The drug mimics a common hormone, GLP-1, which is naturally released by the body when a person eats, however, in larger doses it begins to suppress your appetite, tricking the body into believing its full.

While weight loss is a common goal for people who use semaglutide—the average patient loses 15% or more of their body weight—the health benefits that accompany weight reduction should not be ignored. Semaglutide has been shown to lower blood pressure and improve blood sugar levels in users, in addition to supporting healthier metabolism and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Many patients also report an increase in energy, making an active lifestyle easier to achieve.

Is Semaglutide Right for You?

If you’ve struggled with weight reduction, booking a consultation with JoyDeVie to discuss semaglutide injections might be right for you. The infusions are particularly useful for people who have tried medication in the past without satisfactory results and need to lose more than ten to fifteen pounds.

Semaglutide treatments are convenient and safe, administered in our office. Along with weekly injections, you can expect additional support in the form of a personalized weight loss plan and check-ins during your visits. The infusions are administered through a subcutaneous injection that is barely noticeable to most patients. Known side effects are mild, but may include dizziness, fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting or bloating, and gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea and gassiness. However, as your body adjusts to the weight loss drug, most of these side effects will go away.

Patients who undergo semaglutide infusions can expect to begin to lose weight after six-to-eight weeks of treatment.

JoyDeVie looks forward to helping you reach your weight loss goals. Schedule a consultation today to get on the path to a more vibrant life.
