At The BEST Program we help our patients look and feel younger through a wide range of anti-aging and age management treatments. This includes treatments geared towards helping our patients lose weight and keep the weight off. One of our newest weight loss and weight management treatments is the Semaglutide injection.
What is the Semaglutide Injection?
The Semaglutide injection is one of the newest and most promising weight loss drugs to hit the market. Semaglutide is a once weekly injection designed to help patients lose weight and ultimately keep the weight off. Unlike other weight loss treatments, Semaglutide is a prescription drug that works in increasing the stomach’s emptying time, signaling the brain of feeling full and ultimately helping in appetite suppression.
How does Semaglutide for weight loss work?
For patients who are struggling with being overweight Semaglutide injections for weight loss might help. What makes Semaglutide so effective is how it works with your body in suppressing hunger and more. For starters, Semaglutide is a GLP-1 Agonist. GLP-1 Agonists work by stimulating the pancreas to product additional insulin. When the pancreas produces additional insulin the stomach’s emptying time is increased and a signal of fullness is sent to the brain.
The end result of continuous use of Semaglutide for weight loss is a powerful and lasting appetite suppression for most patients. In some cases, patients on Semaglutide have lost between 50 to 100 pounds, in conjunction with other lifestyle changes.
