Semaglutide Injections for Weight Loss At Reno Tahoe Dermatology

The team at Reno Tahoe Dermatology understands that maintaining a healthy weight can be an uphill battle. Many individuals struggle to not only lose weight, but also keep their weight from fluctuating. While there is no shortage of weight loss treatments available, semaglutide injections offer Reno patients a modern, convenient, and effective method of managing their weight. Semaglutide is an injectable drug that can help obese and overweight individuals facilitate weight loss. Our team is committed to helping patients adopt a happier and healthier quality of life by achieving their weight loss goals.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication that has been used for years to treat and manage diabetes. Now shown to be effective in catalyzing weight loss, semaglutide can help obese or overweight patients reduce their appetite, increase satiety, and manage their weight. Semaglutide behaves similarly to a hormone released in the gut after eating, known as GLP-1. In higher amounts, GLP-1 signals the part of the brain that prompts patients to feel full. In turn, semaglutide injections can suppress one’s appetite and allow patients to feel satisfied faster.

How Do Semaglutide Injections Work?

Semaglutide injections for weight loss usually take place on a weekly basis, depending on each person’s unique treatment plan. Your medical history will be reviewed to create the best plan for your needs. Semaglutide can affect blood sugar levels, so our team will monitor your health and weight loss progress during the course of your treatment. It’s generally recommended to drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated at the time of semaglutide injections.

Are Semaglutide Injections Right For Me?

When combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, semaglutide injections can help promote significant weight loss. In general, it’s advised that individuals considering semaglutide injections should:

  • Have a BMI (body mass index) of 27 and at least one weight-related condition, such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.
  • Have a BMI greater than or equal to 30

This medication can also be beneficial for obese individuals who have trouble losing weight based on desire and willpower alone. By treating obesity as a chronic metabolic condition, semaglutide injections have been able to achieve successful results in countless patients who want to lose weight.

How Much Do Semaglutide Injections Cost?

The cost of semaglutide injections generally depends on the details of each person’s treatment plan. Injections are performed as part of a monthly program with different tiers according to each patient’s needs. Prices may vary based on factors like your tier level and the frequency of injections.
