Semaglutide Weight Loss Injections in Columbus, Ohio
Weight loss is a journey that often feels impossible. One day off track and you may find the immense efforts you’ve put in have been reversed. A packed schedule makes scheduling gym time and healthy home-cooked meals impractical, leaving you on the scale, seeing numbers continue to climb higher. With the latest innovations in medicine, there’s still hope.
Semaglutide injections at Lotus Elite Aesthetics help you shed the pounds without spending countless hours at the gym or eating bland food. This treatment has helped many patients lose weight within weeks of treatment, and love their new, sleek, physique.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a new type of medication that helps patients lose weight, approved by the FDA in 2020 as an injectable supplement. Semaglutide injections are incretin mimetics, inducing weight loss by helping the pancreas to release proper amounts of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Insulin helps move sugar from the blood into other body tissues where it is used for energy. This activates your body’s own natural mechanisms to help you lose weight.
What is the hormone GLP-1?
GLP-1 is a hormone, boosted by Semaglutide, that regulates blood sugar in the body by signaling glucose-dependent insulin secretion. Insulin is responsible for sugar uptake by the cells in the body, storing sugar as glycogen, building fat, and stimulating the body to build skeletal muscle. In addition, GLP-1 inhibits glucagon release, aiding in fat burn and slowing down gastric emptying. This keeps you feeling full, and ensures you are not overeating.
How Does Semaglutide Work?
Semaglutide is a modified version of GLP1 (glucagon-like peptide 1). This protein made in the intestine results in decreased blood sugars and appetite. A chemical change in the molecule prolongs the effects in the body to boost weight loss.
Semaglutide injections come as a liquid solution in a prefilled dosing pen, used to inject subcutaneously, typically once a week, for full effect. This gives a low maintenance solution to weight loss compared to oral supplements that must be taken daily, and surgical procedures such as gastric bypass.
This has been shown to improve weight loss in adults with obesity and chronic weight management issues in clinical trials and in countless real patients.
How Semaglutide helps you lose weight
- Delays stomach emptying, leading to a feeling of fullness and satisfaction with smaller portions
- Slows intestinal motility
- Lowers blood sugars, partly by reducing the production of sugar in the liver
- Stimulates insulin secretion by the pancreas
Am I a good candidate?
If you’re tired of seeing the same numbers on the scale after your weight loss efforts, Semaglutide may be right for you! A rigorous diet and exercise routine may not be a viable option for those who lead busy lives, and don’t always deliver the desired results.
Although Semaglutide brings a wide range of benefits that aid the body in weight loss, it is still recommended to combine physical activity with a healthy diet to boost your results and maintain your overall health and wellbeing. With Semaglutide weight loss injections, there is hope in losing weight and attaining the slim physique you’ve desired!
