Achieving a healthy weight can result in lower blood pressure and cholesterol, improved PCOS and sleep apnea, less heartburn and even less stress incontinence. At The Medspa at The Women's Centre for Excellence we are now offering a physician backed, medically supervised weightloss program using FDA approved medications with clinically proven results.
Your initial consult will be scheduled with one of our Licensed Physicians or Nurse Practitioners to discuss your concerns, goals, health and treatment risks and benefits. This consult and any labs or testing required will be billed to your insurance. If you are a candidate we will then prescribe injectable or sublingual Semaglutide, Lipotropic B12 and/or one of Burn formulations for weight loss and schedule monthly appointments to monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed.
Semaglutide is a newly FDA-approved breakthrough treatment for people who struggle with serious, chronic weight management challenges. First isolated as an effective diabetes drug, this insulin-boosting medication is now available to patients who need to lose a significant amount of weight in a consistent way and achieve results long-term. This treatment method doesn’t rely on stimulants, harmful crash diets, unsustainable exercise plans, or any other mechanism that can jeopardize the patient’s overall health.
In recent months, this medication has been taking the world of weight loss by storm. The FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) recently approved semaglutide as a prescription weight loss aid. Its approval has already improved the lives of many chronically overweight patients by assisting in safe and consistent weight loss.
There’s no need to struggle with perpetual cycles of weight loss and gain. There’s also no need to live with the hopeless feeling that comes with an inability to manage serious weight issues with diet and exercise alone. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide turn to modern medicine every day to keep their bodies in the best possible condition. It’s long past time to end the stigma associated with seeking medical intervention for serious weight management issues.
Your dedication to healthy lifestyle choices will be crucial for sustainable, long-term weight management. However, semaglutide treatment can be an extremely valuable tool. It can help you achieve your goal of having better overall health by getting you on track towards a healthy weight. With weekly semaglutide injections (or daily sublingual dosing), you can reach your ideal body weight in a way that can be maintained for the rest of your life. You can do so without turning to starvation-based “diets” or unrealistic 30-day workout programs.
Now that we have established a basic understanding of semaglutide, we can discuss how fast it works to cause weight loss.
The answer to this is multifactorial and requires a bit of explanation. The short answer is that many of our patients lose weight in the first week of taking semaglutide. The first dose is small (0.25 mg). It is primarily used to gently introduce the medication to the body without risking developing severe side effects.
At the Medspa at The Women's Centre for Excellence, we understand that it is possible to “out-eat” any weight loss medication. In other words, you may see little to no weight loss in the early weeks without making lifestyle changes. This is why we don't recomend medications alone, we encourage healthy eating habits and exercise with the medications as a tool to help you develop healthier lifestyle habits.
The average weight loss achieved in the STEP 1 study of semaglutide for weight loss was 14.9% of the initial body weight over 68 weeks. Individual loss varies and depends on how seriously a person commits his, her, or their self to investigating their personal reasons for eating outside of feeling hungry. Likewise, adjusting food intake to appropriate portions and choosing healthier options regularly.
In our practice, it is not unusual to see a patient lose roughly 20% of their starting body weight during treatment. This amount of weight loss is a testament to the commitment made by those patients to improve their relationship with food with sustained positive changes over time.
Semaglutide, or any other weight loss medication, is a tool to assist in weight loss while the patient makes other lifestyle changes. No magic pill (or injection) will change your relationship with food. The patients who lose the most make healthy choices most of the time.
Semaglutide medications are FDA approvedd for weight loss (among other things) and are the safest weight loss medications available. The results are similar to Bariatric surgery for long term effectiveness.
