It’s almost the New Year! Most people are busy coming up with New Year’s Resolutions that will help get their lives moving forward and bettering a part of themselves. For a lot of people, one of those resolutions is losing weight. They are making plans to eat healthier, go to the gym, cut out their favorite foods all to make their weight loss goals a reality. Sounds like a lot of work, doesn’t it?
What if we told you there was an easier way to lose weight, one that didn’t require you to change your daily habits or make any drastic changes in the way you eat and exercise? It’s also FDA-approved so you know it is safe! The procedure is called Semaglutide weight loss injections.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is an FDA approved subcutaneous injection designed for long term use. Approved in 2017 for type 2 diabetics to help improve glycemic control, Semaglutide was then approved in 2022 for non-diabetics who have difficulty with weight loss. Semaglutide is not a stimulant; it is a non-habit forming, clinically proven effective peptide for long-term results.
How do Weight Loss Injections Work?
With semaglutide weight loss injections, you would have weekly injections that help decrease your appetite and food cravings. Semaglutide works with your GLP-1 hormone, which plays a role in digestion. Essentially what is happening is that your digestion will be slowed down and you will feel full for longer. You can even continue eating the same foods you are now, as there is no restrictive diet, and it doesn’t require any exercise planning.
At Illume, your initial consultation will determine if the program is right for you and any specific goals you have. From there, we would work on a 12-wek program that includes things like your semaglutide injections, B12 injections, virtual appointments, in-person appointments, and more. Patients who have taken part in the weight loss program before having seen up to 12%-15% of total body weight loss in a 68-week period.
Benefits of Weight Loss Injections with Semaglutide
Now that we know a little bit more about semaglutide weight loss injections and how they work, lets dig a little bit deeper as to why they could be a better option than other weight loss programs and options.
- No Restrictive Diet
Like we mentioned a little bit above, there are no major changes you need to make. You can continue living your normal day-to-day. The only changes you need to make are setting aside time to administer the injections and meeting for virtual and in-person appointments.
- Easy to Administer
While you may have some hesitation about administering the shots yourself, we can assure you that we properly show you the technique and each injection of semaglutide is pre-measured to ensure you are administering healthy doses.
- Great Weight Loss Results
Patients who choose to go with weight loss injections are seeing amazing results. Ideally, semaglutide injections are a great option for anyone looking to lose a minimum of 25 points or more. While anyone can choose to do the weight loss injections, our program is designed for patients with more weight to lose.
Semaglutide injections have been FDA-approved for type 2 diabetics since 2017 and was FDA-approved for non-diabetics who struggle with weight in 2022. It is also non-habit forming and has been clinically proven effective for long-term results.
