Semaglutide for Safe, Effective Weight Loss

At Derma Luxe Aesthetics, we understand that achieving your weight loss goals can be challenging. Semaglutide injections have revolutionized the field of weight loss, offering a breakthrough solution for individuals struggling with obesity. Derived from a class of medications known as GLP-1 receptor agonists, semaglutide works by regulating appetite and promoting feelings of fullness, leading to sustainable weight loss. Semaglutide is administered in our clinic as a once weekly injection.

What Is Semaglutide? What Is GLP-1?

Semaglutide is a medication that has similar effects as a naturally occurring hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). Drugs belonging to the GLP-1 drug class are normally given as an injection and some are already available to treat diseases such as Type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Your body naturally produces a number of substances that affect your appetite. One of these is GLP-1. This hormone is produced in the body after you eat. It reduces feeling of hunger and makes you feel full. Reducing feelings of hunger helps you eat less which, when combined with a healthy diet and exercise, helps reduce your body weight.

Studies also suggest that semaglutide shots have beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system, including reducing blood pressure, improving levels of fat in the blood and helping the body lower blood sugar levels that are too high, leading to a decreased risk of heart attack and stroke.  Semaglutide does not cause a low blood sugar level in non-diabetics.

Is There a Shortage of Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a sought-after and highly effective medical weight loss prescription medication. It is available in bioequivalent form through compounding pharmacies to meet the exceptionally high demand that has led to shortages of the brand-named medications. The FDA permits these pharmacies to make the semaglutide available while the drug is on their shortage list, allowing us to provide you with an affordable source of the medication.

Please be aware that the bioequivalent form of the semaglutide is chemically identical to the brand-named medication. Derma Luxe Aesthetics offers the bioequivalent form of semaglutide, which is available at a much more affordable price when compared to brand-named medications. This is especially advantageous if your insurance does not cover this type of drug or you have no insurance.
