We are excited to announce that our newest Semaglutide treatment is now available at Family Weight & Wellness Clinic and Medi-Spa.
What is Semaglutide Weight Management Treatment?
Semaglutide weight management injections are used for weight loss in conjunction with a diet and exercise plan. Semaglutide injections are delivered beneath the surface of the skin (subcutaneously) for chronic weight management in adults with obesity (BMI >30) or who are overweight (BMI >27) with at least one weight-related condition, including high blood pressure, diabetes type 2, and/or high cholesterol.
Semaglutide mimics a glucagon-like peptide hormone called GLP-1, which reduces hunger in the brain and slows the movement of food from the stomach into the small intestine, helping to reduce appetite and increase satiety after eating. Additional treatment benefits associated with Semaglutide weight management may include:
- Improved A1C and blood sugar levels by increasing insulin (a hormone that lowers blood sugar levels) and inhibiting glucagon (a hormone that raises blood sugar).
- Improved blood pressure.
- Reduced risk of major adverse cardiovascular events.
What to Expect During Treatment
Your treatment will begin with a consultation that includes blood work to check lab values and a review of your health and medication history to ensure you are a good candidate for Semaglutide injections. You will be counseled on nutrition and exercise recommendations to be used in conjunction with Semaglutide injections for chronic weight management, including reducing unhealthy calories and increasing physical activity.

Once you are ready for your Semaglutide injection, your skin will be prepped with an alcohol solution and you will be injected just below the surface of the skin (subcutaneously) with the Semaglutide dose titrated for your individual needs, in accordance with your treatment plan. There is no downtime associated with this treatment. You may feel minor discomfort during the injection, similar to an insulin injection.
Common side effects could include ones similar to other anti-obesity medications, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, indigestion, abdominal pain, constipation, fatigue, and dizziness. Multiple weekly injections will be needed over the course of months to achieve desired results.
