Weight Loss is a struggle

Regular exercise and a balanced diet is typically the most effective way to lose weight. However, if you have been struggling to reach your goal with traditional diets, you are not alone. Many people rely on diets and eating plans designed for the general public. Unfortunately, these traditional methods don’t consider your specific needs, such as your metabolism and physical capabilities.

Another treatment option is surgery. While you can achieve great results with surgery, it requires a lot of commitment and because it’s invasive, there is recovery time and there could be complications that arrise.

If you find yourself stuck between these options, Semaglutide may be your answer.

What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication to help you with weight loss. It works best when used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise. The largest clinical trial showed that people taking Semaglutide lost an average of almost 15% of their initial body weight. Many patients begin to experience weight loss within the first two weeks of the initial injection.


Semaglutide is a hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. This hormone, which is released by your body after you’ve eaten a meal, tells the body that you’re no longer hungry. It also slows down the rate at which food is digested, helping to maintain the feeling that you’re full. The net result is that you have a significantly lower calorie intake, which results in significant weight loss.


Most traditional diets rely on calorie restrictions that can trigger your body’s ‘starvation response’ also called ‘starvation mode.’ This response essentially causes your body to conserve your fat reserves, locking them up and holding on to them as long as possible. Your body then is forced to begin burning muscle and body tissue first, rather than the fat reserves you are trying to get rid of.


Semaglutide differs from the diet because it focuses on appetite suppression, by making you feel fuller throughout the day, rather than relying on a restrictive diet and exercise plan. Also, instead of a daily injection, like with the Diet, Semaglutide is administered only once a week.


After reviewing your general health and your body weight loss goal with Dr. Dean, you’ll receive a Semaglutide injection once a week, on the same day each week. It can be given at any time of day and can be taken with or without food.

Since Semaglutide slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach, you may experience brief side effects, like nausea and vomiting. Once you get started on the medication, Dr. Dean will slowly increase your dosage, depending on how your body responds. This will help make side effects much more manageable.

The length of treatment depends upon your desired results. Some clients use Semaglutide Weight Loss treatment only until they have achieved their desired weight target. Others may find the program beneficial for an extended period of time. Dr. Dean will provide advice and counsel so that you can make a decision that’s safe and effective for you.

The Benefits of this treatment

With so many weight loss programs available, it may be challenging to choose one that suits your needs. Semaglutide has many benefits to offer. Here are a few reasons to schedule your Semaglutide injections with us:

You Can Avoid Surgery

Other than fad diets, surgery does not have to be your only option. If you are struggling to lose and keep weight off, Semaglutide is a worthwhile option. It does not require any surgical incisions or anesthesia to administer. It also allows you to lose weight at a healthy and rapid rate.

Long-Term Results

While traditional diets rely on your commitment to reach your goal weight, Semaglutide helps you change your lifestyle and eating habits. It does not only help you lose weight but keeps the weight off due to the positive changes made in your life. By the time you have made these changes, you will have already made significant progress in your weight-loss journey. This will make it easy to continue on your weight loss journey.

A Medical Approach

Most diets and exercise plans are not designed to consider your individual needs, capabilities, or medical conditions. Without understanding what your body needs, it can be nearly impossible to effectively lose weight and be healthy. Before we design a treatment plan for you, we run tests, review your medical history, and assess your current health condition. This will help us customize your treatment plan to suit your specific needs, which will result in an effective solution for weight loss.

Decreases Appetite

Semaglutide does not require you to fight cravings during your weight loss program. Instead, the injections decrease appetite, blood sugar levels, and cholesterol levels to help you lose weight and improve your overall health.
