SEMAGLUTIDE FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Semaglutide Injections, Marion Ohio
At Elite MedSpa, we understand the importance of living a healthy and fulfilling life. We recognize that excess weight can be a challenge for many individuals, and achieving significant weight loss can require more than just diet and exercise. Not everyone is a candidate for surgical treatments, which is why we are proud to introduce Semaglutide Weight Loss as part of our services!
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide Weight Loss, available at Elite MedSpa, is a safe and effective choice for chronic weight management. This prescription medication belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Originally developed for diabetes management, Semaglutide has proven to be a powerful tool in the field of weight loss intervention for its ability to provide a high degree of weight loss without the severe side effects of many anti-obesity medications.
Originally developed for use in patients with type 2 diabetes, semaglutide has been found to be highly effective and safe for weight loss in people with obesity. By mimicking the effects of the naturally occurring hormone GLP-1, Semaglutide helps reduce hunger and increase feelings of fullness. This leads to a decrease in calorie intake and subsequent weight loss. The medication works by affecting the areas of the brain responsible for appetite and food intake, making it easier to maintain a reduced-calorie diet and prevent further weight gain.
Benefits of Semaglutide
The benefits of Semaglutide for weight loss are significant. Clinical trials have shown that patients achieved remarkable results, with 6% weight loss achieved by week 12 and 12% weight loss achieved by week 28.
Additionally, Semaglutide can improve other health markers such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar control. It may also enhance insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation, providing additional benefits for individuals with conditions like type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.

How does weight loss with Semaglutide work?
Weight loss with once-weekly Semaglutide works by reducing your appetite and helping you feel fuller for longer. When you take Semaglutide, it mimics a hormone called GLP-1 in your body. This hormone plays a role in regulating your blood sugar levels and appetite.
By mimicking GLP-1, Semaglutide treatments trick your brain into thinking that you are not as hungry, which leads to a decrease in your food intake and subsequently, a low-calorie diet. Additionally, Semaglutide also slows down the emptying of your stomach, so you feel satisfied for a longer time after eating.
By eating less and feeling fuller, you consume fewer calories, which can result in significant weight loss over time!
At Elite MedSpa, we offer Semaglutide as subcutaneous injections, quick, convenient, and comfortable for our patients. Our expert healthcare providers will evaluate your medical history, current health status, and weight loss goals to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
While these weight loss injections are an excellent tool for weight loss, they should be complemented by physical activity, along with a healthy diet and lifestyle. This is not a replacement for these essential, balanced components of wellness.
Enhance Your Results with Body Contouring
After significant weight loss, excess skin can cause sagging or dimpling that can hinder your confidence. To enhance the results of weight loss with Semaglutide, we also offer non-invasive body contouring at Elite MedSpa such as BodyTite and to give you the shape you’ve dreamed of.
Our body contouring treatments, including radiofrequency skin tightening with BodyTite and Agnes Precision RF microneedling, stimulate collagen production and remodel the skin from within, restoring elasticity and firmness. These non-invasive procedures effectively reduce stubborn body fat, smooth cellulite, and dimpling, and tighten sagging skin, resulting in a smoother and more toned appearance.
Is Semaglutide right for me?
HSemaglutide is approved for use at Elite MedSpa in individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 27 or greater, as well as those with weight-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol. It may also be considered for individuals with a BMI of 30 or greater who do not have a weight-related health condition.
At Elite MedSpa, our dedicated team will work with you to decide whether Semaglutide is the right treatment for your specific needs and goals. Our experienced healthcare providers will thoroughly assess your medical history, current health status, and weight loss goals. This comprehensive evaluation enables us to create a personalized treatment plan that is specifically tailored to your unique needs, helping you achieve a healthy body weight.
While Semaglutide offers remarkable weight loss benefits, it is important to recognize that it is not a substitute for adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle. At Elite MedSpa, we encourage a holistic approach to wellness, encompassing nutritious eating habits and an active lifestyle to optimize your overall health and well-being.
