What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss at Skin Med Spa uses customized meal plans (including the MoxiFit program), exercise programs, and weight loss medications or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help you achieve and maintain your goal weight. 

The practice offers Wegovy® (Semaglutide) weight loss injections to make you less hungry and enhance insulin production, making weight loss easier.


What are the benefits of using Wegovy for weight loss?

Semaglutide is a peptide injection that’s marketed under the brand name Wegovy®, among others.

When used in combination with healthy lifestyle habits, semaglutide can:

  • Stimulate weight loss
  • Control blood sugar
  • Enhance fat burning
  • Improve fertility in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Protect your nervous system
  • Reduce appetite
  • Reduce your body fat percentage

Many patients can lose a significant amount of body weight using Wegovy. For individuals that are overweight, it can increase their energy levels, reduce their risk of chronic diseases, and improve disease management.


Is Wegovy the right weight loss option for me?

If you have excess body weight and traditional diets and exercise plans haven’t worked, Wegovy may be right for you. To find out, your Skin Med Spa specialist weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI), checks your vitals, reviews your medical history, and completes a medical evaluation. 

You might also undergo blood tests to check for nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, chronic diseases, or disease risk factors before your specialist tailors a weight loss plan best suited to your needs.


What should I expect when taking Wegovy?

Wegovy is an injection that you administer yourself once a week using a very tiny needle. Every four weeks, your dosage may change to enhance your results. When taking Wegovy, you can expect to feel fuller quicker and stay satisfied longer. 

Once you reach your target body weight, your Skin Med Spa specialist slowly tapers your Wegovy dosage to help you maintain your goal weight long-term. 

To enhance your weight loss, it’s also critical to exercise regularly, follow your personalized diet plan, and achieve hormone balance. Skin Med Spa offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men and women with low hormone levels. 


How much weight loss can I expect when taking Wegovy?

Every person has a unique weight loss journey, but you may lose 4-10 pounds per month and up to 50 pounds over six months while using Wegovy. Follow your meal plan and administer Semaglutide exactly as directed to increase your chance of long-lasting success.
