Arlington Weight Loss Injections
Weight loss injections are all the rage right now and Physician’s Ageless Solutions is proud to announce we are now offering Semaglutide, the generic form of Wegovy®, shots in our Arlington office.
If you have struggled to lose weight and keep it off on your own, weight loss injections could be the solution you’ve been looking for. Before you book an appointment, here’s what you need to know about using a product like Semaglutide for weight loss.
How much weight can I lose with these injections?
During a 68-week medical study, 1 in 3 adults using Semaglutide lost about 20% of their starting body weight which was an average of 46 lbs.
Results vary from person to person and the injections were found to be most effective when they were done alongside a healthy diet and exercise. They were also most effective when they were used consistently.
Other Benefits to Taking Semaglutide, the Generic Version of Wegovy®
The greatest benefit is obviously weight loss but some people also experienced improvements to:
- Blood pressure
- Blood Sugar
- Energy levels
- Overall mood
Which is better?
Wegovy® vs. Mounjaro
Semaglutide, the generic form of Wegovy® and Mounjaro both fall under the category of GLP-1 receptor agonists which is a class of medications that have been around since the early 2000s.
Mounjaro was created to treat type 2 diabetes, but users found that it also helped with weight loss. Mounjaro is not officially approved as a weight loss injectable, although it is expected to be soon.
Semaglutide is the first FDA-approved injection to help with chronic weight management.
At PAS, we are utilizing Semaglutide as it is FDA-approved for weight loss and has good results to back it up!
Wegovy® vs. Ozempic
When it comes to Semaglutide, being sold under the brand name Wegovy® vs. Ozempic, there is nothing to compare! They are the same medication, Semaglutide, selling under different brand names. Wegovy® is Semaglutide for weight loss and Ozempic is Semaglutide for diabetes. So the only thing to compare here is marketing!
How do I get started with injections for weight loss?
To get started, contact our office and schedule a consultation. Dr. Greco and the team at PAS will go over your health history and determine if you’re a candidate for weight loss injections.
In addition to weight loss injections, PAS also offers hormone replacement therapy. If you aren’t sure if weight loss injections are right for you, hormone replacement therapy could be an alternative treatment to help you lose weight.
Why Weight Loss Injections at PAS Are Important
For years, people have come to Physician’s Ageless Solutions because they want us to help them look and feel their best. Aesthetic treatments will only go so far if you’re carrying excess weight and not feeling good about your body as a whole.
We understand losing weight is difficult for many people. The concept of “calories in, calories out” is dead. There is so much more that plays a role in weight loss like our hormones, stress, activity levels, and more.
We started offering hormone therapy years ago and it’s been a tremendous success. Our hormone replacement program has helped hundreds of clients reclaim their lives. When your hormones are balanced, you’ll have an easier time losing weight.
While this treatment has helped many, we wanted another tool in our toolbox to be able to further help those struggling with weight specifically, so it just made sense to add weight loss injections to our growing list of health and wellness services. With this addition, PAS will be able to help even more clients in Arlington look and feel their best!
