Slimming Down with Weight Loss Injections
Going under the knife is no longer the only medical solution for losing stubborn fat. In recent years, the field of medical weight loss has been upended by a revolutionary injectable.
Semaglutide is a safe and effective obesity treatment that has become enormously popular due to its proven efficacy and the countless success stories of patients and celebrities alike.
At Dermestetics, we’re committed to providing the highest quality care for our patients using the very best aesthetic and wellness treatments. Given our mission, deciding to offer comprehensive programs that include weight loss injections in Fairfax County and Prince William County was a no brainer.
Do Semaglutide Injections Live Up to the Hype? (Spoiler: They Do)
According to a study published by the National Library of Medicine, on average, patients lost between 9.6 and 17.4% of their initial body weight after receiving semaglutide injections for 68 weeks.
It’s not uncommon for patients to lose as much as 5 to 7 pounds per month on semaglutide when paired with lifestyle interventions. Patients who experience the most success with weight loss injections in Fairfax and Prince William Counties reduce their caloric intake, eat smaller portions, and get regular exercise.
Losing weight through diet and exercise alone is far less effective and consistent than when paired with semaglutide. For the millions of Americans who struggle with obesity and just can’t seem to get rid of that stubborn fat, semaglutide has forever changed the game.
How to Self-Administer Semaglutide
We prescribe weekly subcutaneous semaglutide injections for qualifying patients to self-administer. If you’re uncomfortable injecting yourself, we encourage you to talk to your medical weight loss provider about booking weekly appointments.
If you choose to self-administer, be sure to carefully follow the instructions given to you by your provider. That being said, here are a few guidelines to keep in mind:
- Semaglutide should be injected under the skin of your stomach, upper arms, or thighs.
- Rotate the injection site between these options for each injection to avoid scarring and bruising.
- Don’t mix semaglutide in the same syringe as any other injectable medication.
- Make sure the fluid in your injection pen is completely clear and colorless.
- Do not reuse needles.
- Administer your treatment with or without a meal.
- Don’t double-dose. If you forget to take your weekly injection, simply administer the treatment as soon as you remember, unless it’s nearly time for your next weekly dose.
