Semaglutide weight loss clinic Aberdeen, NJ - Vitality Hormone Wellness

What is semaglutide and how does it promote weight loss?

Semaglutide is an injectable prescription medication originally approved for treating type 2 diabetes. It belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1, which is a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. It also reduces appetite and food cravings by affecting areas of the brain that control food intake. Specifically for weight loss, semaglutide helps you feel fuller faster so you eat less, reduces cravings, and controls hunger.

What are the typical results patients see with semaglutide injections?

On average, patients lose 15-25 pounds with semaglutide injections over a period of 6 to 9 months. However, weight loss results can vary significantly. Some patients lose only 5-10 pounds while others lose up to 50 pounds or more. Generally speaking, the more excess weight you have to lose, the more dramatic your results may be. But semaglutide combined with healthy lifestyle changes can produce significant weight loss for most patients who stick to the treatment regimen consistently.

What is the process for getting started on semaglutide?

Getting started on semaglutide is easy. First, schedule a consultation with one of our weight loss specialists. They will assess your health, set weight loss goals, order any necessary lab tests, and determine if you are a candidate for semaglutide therapy. If approved, you will receive training on properly injecting yourself with the medication at home. We closely monitor all patients and adjust your dosage and treatment plan until optimal weight loss is achieved. Expect monthly follow up visits. We handle the entire prescription process start to finish.

What kind of lifestyle changes should accompany semaglutide treatment?

While the semaglutide injections do most of the work in terms of curbing appetite and cravings, some lifestyle adjustments will maximize your results. Our specialists provide customized diet and exercise recommendations to complement the medication. In general, we advise eating more lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains while limiting sugar intake. Doing some form of moderate physical activity for 30-45 minutes daily also greatly enhances overall weight loss on semaglutide. But we realize major lifestyle changes can't happen overnight. Small, sustainable adjustments over time lead to big rewards.

What are the costs associated with semaglutide weight loss treatment?

The costs of semaglutide for weight loss purposes depend on several factors, primarily the dosage prescribed and duration of treatment. We offer competitive self-pay rates and financing options to keep this highly effective medication accessible and affordable. On average, most patients can expect to budget $800 to $1,200 for a 6-month treatment period including medication costs, weekly injections, and monthly clinical monitoring.
