Losing weight is something that everyone struggles with. With the hidden sugars and calories in everything that we eat, it is no surprise that 41.9% of Americans are considered obese. Other factors, such as a slowing metabolism as we age, also make it difficult to lose weight. Your metabolism slows by 10% every decade after the age of 20. That is a significant drop by the time that you hit 40 or 50 years of age. It is no wonder that it is harder to lose weight in your 50’s as opposed to when you were 16 years old. However, Pure Youth Wellness & Aesthetics can assist you on your weight loss journey with weekly semaglutide injections.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). It has been FDA approved for weight loss in early 2021 for weight management in adults with obesity. Overweight adults with a weight-related condition are also eligible to receive these semaglutide injections.

How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide works by regulating the part of the brain that feels full. This peptide helps the pancreas release the correct amount of insulin in response to your blood sugar. By balancing out the insulin in your body, your appetite is curbed. Semaglutide also delays stomach emptying, further leading to feeling full which reduces eating.

How Long is Semaglutide Treatment?

Pyure Wellness & Aesthetics recommends a 5-month treatment plan to get the most out of the semaglutide injections. After your initial consult, you will administer the weekly injections in the comfort of your home. There is no need to take time out of your busy schedule to come to our office once per week for the injections. This is an easy and convenient method for shedding pounds. We will work with you to identify the ideal dose for you. We will gradually increase your dose throughout the 20-week period to minimize the side effects.
