Semaglutide for Weight Loss - How Does it Work?

So you’ve tried the diets and exercise plans but you just can’t seem to get the weight off? It may be time to put a new tool in your tool belt to help you achieve those weight loss goals.

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved peptide that helps reduce your appetite, curb cravings, boost energy, and regulate blood sugar levels. Is it right for you? Let’s dig into the details and find out.

What is a Peptide?

Peptides and proteins are often confused because they are both chains of amino acids held together by peptide bonds. However, peptides have much fewer amino acids making them much smaller.

No matter the size, peptides have been shown to have some pretty big impacts. They also tend to be more easily absorbed by the body because of their size.

They have been shown to play a role in slowing down the aging process, reducing inflammation, and reducing microbes.

Is Semaglutide a Peptide?

Semaglutide belongs to a group called glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) receptor agonists. This means it mimics the GLP-1 hormones that are naturally occurring in your body, stimulating insulin secretion and lowering glucose secretion when your blood glucose levels are high. This peptide also slows down how quickly the stomach is emptied.

How Does it Help with Weight Loss?

  • Gives the feeling of fullness after eating

  • Helps lower blood sugar

  • Curbs cravings for unhealthy foods

  • Increases energy levels

What is the Process?

Using Semaglutide for weight loss should be done under medical supervision to ensure that you are an ideal candidate and that you are safely losing weight.

Should you see our staff at Luxe Vitality, this is what you should expect:

1. Consultation with our medical staff to discuss your medical history, weight loss goals, and complete the necessary lab work.

2. If you are a candidate for this program, you will begin the first phase of our semaglutide weight loss program.

3. Come into the lounge to learn how to complete your self-injections at home.

4. Each month you will receive your individualized dosage and instructions delivered to your front door.

How Much Weight Will I Lose?

This will vary between each client because every human is unique! However, on average, you can expect to lose 15% of your body weight in the course of this program.

It is important that you stay on track with your weekly injections and in communication with your provider throughout the program.

Any prior medical conditions, medications, or lifestyle changes could impact your weight loss results.

Who is a Candidate?

In order to be a candidate for this weight loss program you must have a BMI greater than 27 and no history of Type 2 diabetes or thyroid cancer.

To determine whether you are a good candidate or not, a simple physical and blood work will be conducted in our lounge.

How Much Does it Cost?

Depending on the provider you are seeing for this weight loss program, your monthly cost could range anywhere from $350 - $1200 a month.

At Luxe Vitality, we have a monthly rate of $500 per month that covers your lab work, communication with our providers, and all of the medication and supplies.
