How Fast Does Semaglutide Work?

Are you looking to lose weight? Here at Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton, UT we are excited to be offering Semaglutide Medical Weight Loss for our guests.

What is Semaglutide?

  • Semaglutide is a weight loss medication received by weekly injection

  • Semaglutide is FDA approved for weight loss

  • Semaglutide is more effective than all prior weight loss medications!

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide has a couple different effects on the body that are responsible for its weight loss results.

Semaglutide acts on the hypothalamus, a part of the brain that you could think of similar to a thermostat that controls more than just the body temperature. The hypothalamus also regulates our mood, blood pressure, sleep, and sex drive. But an essential function related to weight loss is the sensation of hunger and fullness controlled by the hypothalamus. Semaglutide makes you feel fuller for a longer amount of time and reduces cravings. This allows you to have an easier time opting for lower fat and healthier options.

Semaglutide also slows down the speed of digestion. Put more simply, semaglutide keeps the food in your stomach for longer than usual, keeping you full longer.

Is it safe?

With all the changes semaglutide makes to your body, you may wonder– is semaglutide safe?

While no medication is without risks and side effects, semaglutide is relatively safe for most people. Semaglutide can even be used in people with most heart, kidney, liver, and endocrine conditions.

Before obtaining a prescription, you will meet with one of our providers for a full consultation to go over your medical history and go over the process and realistic results.

We will also go over your lifestyle habits and weight loss goals. If you start healthy habits along with your semaglutide injections you could see results as early as the first week. Healthy sustainable weight loss is 0.5 – 2.0 pounds a week.

Results are individual to each guest. Factors such as high BMI at the start of the therapy, a healthy diet, presence or absence of exercise and the type of exercise used, and more can effect your results.

Your provider will help design your personal weightloss plan and goals.

Our goal at Akin Aesthetics and Wellness in Riverton, UT is to provide our guests with the tools and information to achieve a reduced weight and maintain the loss long term.
