Medical Weight loss

Patient on Scale

Semaglutide for Weight Loss (Wegovy/Ozempic)

Semaglutide, also known as Wegovy or Ozempic was approved by the FDA in June 2021. It has been used for type II diabetes since 2017. In studies, patient's noted a 15-18% decrease in their body weight, which is more than what has been seen with other weight loss medications. We recommend using this as a tool along with a healthy diet and exercise. 

How Does Semaglutide Work for Weight Loss? 

A GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. Incretins — hormones released by your digestive tract — are sent out by your body after you’ve eaten a meal. They help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin release from the pancreas and blocking sugar production, helping with insulin resistance that can be affecting your ability to lose weight. They also slow down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying).

The result of these actions causes you to feel full — lowering your appetite and causing you to lose weight. Medications like GLP-1 agonists are referred to as incretin mimetics since they “mimic” these effects.

If you have been struggling to lose weight, this is just the tool you need to get the weight off. We have helped hundreds of patients over the last year and if you would like to book a consultation, please click this link below:

I have seen Sara for multiple reasons over the past 7 months and all I can say is Sara and her team are AMAZING! My beautiful cousin has watched me through the years and recommended I just go ask questions and see how I felt. That was simple enough and of course I dragged my closest girl tribe members with me. I wasn’t getting into this alone! All for one and one for all! 😆 I originally went to talk about the dreaded double chin (in fear of someday getting that waddle). I started CRYO with her in May 2022 and the difference in my face is unbelievable (see photo). I felt comfortable enough to open up about an even more sensitive subject such as being called “obese” by a doctor I recently saw. 😦🙄 This is always a touchy subject, I felt like I had tried EVERYTHING! I explained that I struggle with taking the weight off and keeping it off. Sara has been by my side through this journey and I went from a “snuggled in” size 12 to a “ OMG” size 8 in just 6 months! Not only do I SEE THE DIFFERENCE, I FEEL AMAZING! 👀💃🏻What we all need to look into as we continue to celebrate our birthdays year after year, is what our bodies produce less of. I have been in the same professional career for 18 years and to one day wake up and “be too old to enjoy my job” is not acceptable. We don’t have to feel that way. 💪👠👙 I now embrace this journey and look forward to the next time some sweet little handsome faced 20 year old cards me to buy that bottle of wine I’m no longer ashamed to drink. 🍷😆
