What to Expect

  • Avoid NSAIDs, fish oil, and vitamin E for 7-14 days prior to your appointment

  • Avoid products containing retinoids, glycolic acid, or alpha-hydroxy acids for 7 days prior to your appointment.

  • Who is a good candidate for Semaglutide?
    Semaglutide was originally used for blood sugar control in diabetics. Now, it is commonly prescribed for adults who are obese (BMI ≥30) or overweight (BMI ≥27) with weight-related medical problems (ie: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes) to help them lose weight & maintain weight loss long-term.
  • How does Semaglutide work?
    It works as an appetite suppressant by mimicking the hormone "glucagon-like peptide-1" (GLP-1), which targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite & food intake. It increases fullness, delays gastric emptying, and regulates blood sugar levels.
  • How effective is Semaglutide for weight loss?
    In adults with obesity, many recent studies showed an average body weight reduction of 10%-15%. Please note: Individual results may vary and there are no guarantees for effectiveness or success of any medication. For published clinical studies showing efficacy and safety of Semaglutide, please click the following: Friedrichsen M, Breitschaft A, Tadayon S, Wizert A, Skovgaard D. The effect of semaglutide 2.4 mg once weekly on energy intake, appetite, control of eating, and gastric emptying in adults with obesity (2022, Oct). Diabetes Obes Metab. 2021 Mar;23(3):754-762. doi: 10.1111/dom.14280 Garvey, W.T., Batterham, R.L., Bhatta, M. et al. Two-year effects of semaglutide in adults with overweight or obesity: the STEP 5 trial. Nat Med 28, 2083–2091 (2022). Wilding JPH, Batterham RL, Calanna S, Davies M, Van Gaal LF, Lingvay I, McGowan BM, Rosenstock J, Tran MTD, Wadden TA, Wharton S, Yokote K, Zeuthen N, Kushner RF; STEP 1 Study Group. Once-Weekly Semaglutide in Adults with Overweight or Obesity (2021, Feb). N Engl J Med. 2021 Mar 18;384(11):989-1002. doi: 10.1056/NEJMoa2032183
  • Do you prescribe Wegovy® or Ozempic®?
    No. We prescribe the generic form, Semaglutide, combined with a small dose of Vitamin B12. The brand names (Wegovy® and Ozempic®) are generally more expensive (over $1000/month) and have a history of short supply due to high demand. We use an FDA-regulated compounding pharmacy that adheres to strict cGMP guidelines and conducts third-party lab testing to ensure our medications are sterile, stable, potent, and safe for use.
  • How is Semaglutide administered & how often do I need it?
    It is a once-weekly subcutaneous (under the skin) injection, typically in the stomach. Pain is usually minimal as the injection is quick and shallow. Our dosing is similar to the Wegovy® dosing schedule. Weekly doses are titrated based on effectiveness and patient tolerance (per office protocol). Unlike other appetite suppressants, it can be used long-term depending on the patient's weight progress, goal weight, and tolerance to side effects.
  • Who would NOT be a good candidate for Semaglutide?
    It should absolutely not be used in patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma, or have a rare condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2*. *FOR A FULL LIST OF CONTRAINDICATIONS, PLEASE CONSULT YOUR SHAPE & SKIN PROVIDER.
