Semaglutide is a relatively new FDA approved weight loss treatment. If you’re overweight, it could help you to drop several pounds. When used with other weight loss efforts, such as a low-calorie diet and exercise, semaglutide can produce dramatic results if you’ve previously struggled to address your excess weight. Here at Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton, UT we are excited to offer Semaglutide injections for our guests on their weight loss journey!
What is Semaglutide? Semaglutide is a medication that helps people lose weight by reducing their appetite. It belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogs. GLP-1 is a hormone that is released when you eat food. It signals to your brain that you are full and reduces your appetite. Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1. It binds to the same receptors in your brain as GLP-1, which reduces your appetite and makes you feel fuller after eating. As a result, you eat less food and lose weight.
How does Semaglutide work for weight loss? Semaglutide works by reducing your appetite. It does this by binding to the same receptors in your brain as GLP-1, which is a hormone that is released when you eat food. This hormone signals to your brain that you are full and reduces your appetite.
As a result, you eat less food and lose weight. Semaglutide has been shown to help people lose up to 10% of their body weight. And, because it suppresses your appetite, you are less likely to regain the weight you lost. In addition to reducing your appetite, semaglutide also helps you feel fuller after eating. This is because it slows down the emptying of your stomach. As a result, you stay full for longer and are less likely to snack between meals. Weight Loss Program that's as easy as 1, 2, 3 1.
