Semaglutide—What Is It And What Are The Benefits?

Introducing the new doctor-supervised weight loss program! Face The World Med Spa is now offering the FDA-approved Semaglutide Injections!!
After trying the medication myself for 2 months and losing 10 pounds (along with 8 other trial patients that were prescreened) we are now offering the weekly injection of the medication in our office.  
Semaglutide works by decreasing your appetite, and slows down the emptying of the stomach. It improves your resistance to insulin and thus reduces your food cravings. It stops you from becoming a diabetic by decreasing your hemoglobin A1c level. And it also reduces your risk of a heart attack.
The medication is injected under the skin in either the thigh, abdomen or upper arm as directed by your doctor usually once weekly. It may be used with or without food. The dosage is based on your medical condition in response to treatment.

Here's how Semaglutide is given

.Your doctor will start you on a low dose first to decrease your risk of stomach/abdominal side effects, and gradually increase your dose. The recommended starting dose for Semaglutide is 0.25 mg once a week, but after four weeks, you may need to increase your dosage to 0.5 mg or even higher, depending on your response to the medication.

After that, you can double the dose every four weeks as tolerated. The maximum dose is 2.4 mg per week. Semaglutide is not for people with Type 1 Diabetes or for people with Diabetic Ketoacidosis (increased ketones in your blood or urine).

If you have a history of pancreatitis, this may not be the medication for you.

SIDE EFFECTS: Nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, diarrhea, tiredness, dizziness, or constipation may occur. Nausea usually lessens as you continue to use Semaglutide.

· Semaglutide prohibits comfort foods. Fatty foods aggravate nausea and stomach pain. Avoid spicy food. Spicy foods are harmful.
