Semaglutide is a prescription weight loss injection you can self-inject from the comfort of your home once a week. It is approved for use in individuals looking to trim down and keep the weight off. Semaglutide helps slow down stomach emptying and allows users to feel full longer and eat less. When combined with healthy habits like diet and exercise, the treatment results in clinically significant weight loss.
If your scale hasn’t budged despite healthier eating and trips to the gym, semaglutide can give you the boost needed to burn through fat without dealing with those uncomfortable hunger pangs. After losing weight with semaglutide, our clients often say they feel a surge of confidence and boosted energy. Here are some key reasons to consider semaglutide:
- It is proven to suppress appetite.
- It slows stomach emptying and keeps users feeling satiated longer.
- It has passed FDA trials for efficacy and is considered safe for long-term use.
- Patients enjoy health benefits such as a lower risk of heart disease, cancers, and diabetes.
Our Houston weight management program is available to men and women, and is recommended in a case-by-case basis depending on BMI and medical history*. Our clinicians will evaluate your medical profile to ensure that semaglutide is safe before recommending it as part of your weight-loss regimen.
Please contact us to determine if you are a candidate.
*Semaglutide is not an option if you have a history of medullary thyroid cancer, gallbladder disease, pancreatitis, or MEN2.
While contraindications are few and far between, certain health issues, pregnancy, or breastfeeding may rule out some candidates
Shedding pounds requires dedication and ongoing support. At PS Med Spa, Dr. Sukkar and nurses are on your side to guide you through the process and oversee your safety from day one.
determining candidacy for semaglutide
Semaglutide weight-loss injections aren’t right for everyone. First, we will give you a lab form. Simply bring the form to Quest Diagnostics to complete your labs 48 to 72 hours before your first appointment at PS Med Spa. Dr. Sam Sukkar will review your lab results with our nurse to determine your candidacy.
your initial semaglutide appointment
Our nurses will conduct a full medical evaluation to ensure semaglutide is appropriate for you. We will show you how to inject the medication properly and outline your program timeline as well as your dosage and injection schedule.
your semaglutide treatment
Our supervised medical weight loss program involves a weekly self-administered injection, which prevents overeating. This makes it easy to get your daily calorie intake under control, which can mean losing as much as one to two pounds per week. At PS Med Spa, we have compounded our semaglutide with B12 to ensure each patient hits their target number on the scale.
what to expect after your first dose
Gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea are possible side effects, especially when starting semaglutide or increasing your monthly dose. Most people adjust quickly and simply go on to enjoy their results. We encourage you to:
- Watch your portion sizes at mealtime.
- Skip empty-calorie drinks like juice, alcohol, and soda.
- Eat small, nutrient-dense meals throughout the day to avoid low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), dizziness, or weakness.
- Stay active with cardio and incorporate resistance training into your gym routine to ramp up your body’s ability to burn through calories at rest.
take your results even further
At PS MedSpa, weight management with semaglutide is just one option. We offer virtually every medical weight management tool, body sculpting, and skin revitalization service under one roof. Many procedures can be safely combined to accelerate your results. Our nurse can tell you more during your personalized assessment.
Losing weight is just the start. Depending on how much weight you’ve lost, excess skin may be left behind. Extreme, rapid weight loss often causes sagging, which body contouring and skin rejuvenation procedures can address.
