Medical Weight Loss F.A.Q.s
Medical weight loss at Elevate Aesthetics includes the use of a class of medications known as GLP-1 agonists to suppress appetite, and alter how the liver stores energy. It is most commonly known as semaglutide and administered once weekly via injection. Patients are also administered an in-office vitamin B-12 injection monthly.
Semaglutide mimics the hormone GLP-1 in your body. This hormone slows down how fast your stomach empties food, it stimulates your pancreas to release insulin to lower blood sugar levels, and it blocks a hormone (glucagon) that causes your liver to release sugar into the bloodstream.
While everyone is different, the average patient who is taking semaglutide in combination with diet and exercise lifestyle modifications, can lose several pounds in the first week of therapy. It is important to note that while weight loss can occur with semaglutide alone, this is not recommended as the weight gain will return once the medication is stopped.
You will see the nurse practitioner monthly for re-evaluation, diet and exercise consultation, and medication refills, if necessary. Our nurse practitioner is available at any time for questions about treatment while on therapy.
