At Pure Beauty Skin Care and Medical Spa, we offer Semaglutide to help our patients achieve the tight, contoured body they have always dreamed of having. Semaglutide works by making the patient feel full faster, allowing them to avoid overeating and the stress that comes with having hunger pangs at work. 

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide was first approved in 2017 as a treatment for managing glycemic levels in patients with Type 2 diabetes. The drug works by boosting insulin secretion and reducing the secretion of glucagon, which ultimately achieves blood sugar stabilization. Studies have shown that Semaglutide can reduce appetite, minimize food cravings, and create a glycemic balance in the body. Patients who take Semaglutide see the most benefits when they combine the treatment with a healthy lifestyle (a healthy diet and regular exercise).


How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide matches GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), a unique hormone in the body that is responsible for regulating appetite and the rate of food consumption. When this hormone works at an optimal capacity, the brain is “tricked” into feeling satiated after eating a smaller amount of food. 

Semaglutide instructs the pancreas to release a certain amount of insulin when elevated blood sugar levels are detected. It then causes the passage of food through the stomach to slow down, which causes a drop in appetite. This process is known as “gastric emptying.”

What Are The Benefits Of Semaglutide?

  • Jumpstarts weight loss
  • A non-addictive treatment
  • Physically tolerable for most patients
  • Mitigates appetite and hunger pangs 
  • Causes patients to feel full faster

Who is a candidate for Semaglutide?

Patients can only get Semaglutide by prescription from a weight loss specialist. Not all patients are considered eligible, so the consultation process is incredibly important. Adults interested in Semaglutide should have a BMI (body mass index) higher than 30. Obesity-related medical issues, such as hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol, will render one a candidate for Semaglutidec at a BMI of 27 or higher.  

During the private consultation, we review the patient’s medical history to ensure that Semaglutide is a safe and viable option for them. Patients with a history of endocrine or thyroid tumors, or certain types of cancer, should refrain from using Semaglutide. Patients are required to disclose all recent medications to the practitioner prior to undergoing the treatment, as certain substances can interact with Semaglutide and lead to complications.

What does the treatment entail?

Semaglutide comes in the form of a weekly injection, typically starting at a dosage of 0.25mg. If needed, this dosage can be increased gradually at the one-month mark. Injections are typically administered in areas such as the midsection, upper arm, or thighs.

Potential Side Effects Of Semaglutide

While most patients have no issues with Semaglutide, there is the possibility of developing certain side effects. That said, these symptoms typically resolve after just a few weeks. Some of these may include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Dyspepsia
  • Constipation

There are also some rarer side effects, such as headaches, upper respiratory tract infections, UTIs (urinary tract infections), nasopharyngitis, and heightened pancreatic enzyme levels. We follow up with our patients throughout their recovery process to make sure that things are going smoothly.
