When it first came out, Semaglutide was used with diet and exercise to help control blood sugar levels in individuals with diabetes. Now, it can also help with chronic weight management for those in the obese or overweight category. Research continues to show the effectiveness of Semaglutide injections for losing weight.
Featuring Semaglutide to promote progress, our weight loss program includes:
There is no quick or permanent solution to obesity. It requires dedication to a full nutrition plan, activity, and careful use of prescription medication (if you choose medical weight loss). Our team of specialists is here to help you look and feel like yourself again.

Our bodies naturally produce a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) hormone that responds to food, releasing insulin and reducing the appetite. Semaglutide mimics this hormone, helping individuals who struggle with appetite control. It comes in multiple forms to treat various conditions.
The first is a type of Semaglutide injection that can help children ages twelve and up and adults struggling with obesity.
Another type helps patients lose weight and keep it off, but it also improves blood sugar to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, or death for individuals with heart disease.

*Before & After disclaimer: Before and after images reflect real results from real patients, although individual results may vary. No treatment is promised to provide permanent results. A guarantee is neither provided nor implied. Statements estimating treatment duration and the number of treatments required are based on the typical experience of our patients, however, individual experiences may vary.
*Treatment specific: *Contraindications to Semaglutide include a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, allergy to Semaglutide, Type 1 Diabetes or history of Diabetic Ketoacidosis, personal or family history of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia, personal history of Pancreatitis, renal impairment or kidney disease, gallbladder disease, or concurrent use of anti-diabetic medications or insulin.
Semaglutide is not covered by insurance when used only for weight management. Insurance companies do not mandate coverage for obesity medications or surgeries. However, if you are also using Semaglutide for type-2 diabetes or a heart condition, check with your insurance provider, as it may be covered.
Some patients do experience adverse effects when taking Semaglutide, although they are usually mild and manageable. Patients using Semaglutide injections can feel side effects such as:
Many of these feelings are better controlled by easing into Semaglutide with a lower dosage to start.
If you have a history of medullary thyroid cancer, gallbladder disease, or pancreatitis, Semaglutide might not be the solution. The same can be said for those dealing with multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN2). The best way to determine whether Semaglutide is right for you is to consult with a healthcare provider you trust, who will then help you start the lab work necessary to continue moving forward.
