What is Semaglutide/B12?
You may have heard of Semaglutide from its massive success in weight loss across Hollywood, 60 Minutes, social media, and even people you may know!
Semaglutide was originally used for diabetics under the brand name Ozempic® to control blood sugar levels. In June 2021, the FDA approved Semaglutide for weight loss under the brand name Wegovy®. Since then, it has blown up worldwide for its successful results!
At SHAPE & SKIN, we use an FDA-registered compounding pharmacy that combines Semaglutide with Vitamin B12 (Semaglutide/B12) for weight loss. The Vitamin B12 helps relieve possible nausea with the medication. We've already launched this program within our clinic and our patients are already seeing success!
