Introduction to Semaglutide

Weight loss can be either an exciting journey or a daunting task, depending on how you choose to look at it. Having a good workout routine may lead to your body feeling sore, but in a way that you know you did something good, and a regulated diet may not always be the most flavorful, but can leave you feeling lighter and more in-tune with your body. So when you strive to lose weight and it just doesn’t seem to go away, it can be frustrating for most people. While there are options to get rid of stubborn fat like Liposuction, surgical answers aren’t always at the top of the list for some people. Thankfully, Personique On The Spot has an alternative option to losing weight with Semaglutide injections in Austin, TX. If you are struggling with your weight but are looking to achieve a better body shape, we encourage you to learn more about this life-changing, non-surgical option!

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an increasingly popular, once-a-week injection of a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1), an FDA-approved medication that was created to help control chronic weight management. GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that is released by your digestive tract and plays a large role in your appetite and digestion. These hormones are sent out into your body after eating a meal and help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin release and blocking sugar.

This treatment can help adult patients lose almost 15% of their body weight and some of our adolescent patients lose almost 16% when paired with a healthy diet and a dedicated exercise routine.

What are the Benefits of Semaglutide?

In addition to the loss of unwanted weight without undergoing surgery, our Austin, TX Semaglutide patients have seen the following benefits from their treatments:

What’s the First Step?

The first step in getting Semaglutide treatments in Austin, TX is to contact your nearest Personique on the Spot and schedule a consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with a member of our aesthetic team who will answer any questions or concerns you have, listen to your desires for the results, examine your body, and ask you questions regarding your lifestyle and medical history. When discussing anything with your provider, please be completely open and honest with them because the information you provide will help prevent any unnecessary risks. Once you agree to the procedure, we can start your weight loss journey with Semaglutide

What to Expect on the Day of Semaglutide

The treatment requires a weekly dosage that is in a single-use injection pen, much like insulin injections for diabetes. You will be able to perform your injections in the comfort of your own home only once a week. Although it doesn’t need to be done at the same time every week, the injection will need to be performed the same day every week for best results and can be taken with or without food. The injections can be injected just under your skin in either your abdomen, upper arm, or thigh, and you will need to choose alternate injection sites with each dose. You can keep the location the same (i.e. the thigh), but you should do your best to avoid the same spot twice. You may experience some gastrointestinal reactions because of the nature of the treatment, and you can find the specifics listed below.

Semaglutide Recovery

Every patient will have a different weight loss journey, so you shouldn’t expect the same experience as another patient. It’s essential to be patient during your treatment period and understand this isn’t a “quick fix” or substitution for a healthy lifestyle; Semaglutide is only meant to be an aid to achieving a better body. You can expect an increase in your dosage every four weeks and you may be on this routine for about four months. Once your provider feels you are where you need to be, they will inform you of how much longer you will need to take the injection.

How Much Does Semaglutide Cost in Austin, TX?

The cost of Semaglutide in Austin will depend on several factors, including how many vials of the serum you need to achieve your goals. When you come in for your consultation and your treatment plan is created, our Patient Coordinator will be able to provide you with a breakdown which will then give you a much better idea of the cost for the entirety of your treatment.

Semaglutide FAQ’s

Is Semaglutide painful?

While most patients wouldn’t consider this treatment to be painful, it does require a needle injection. At first, there may be a mental hesitation to poke yourself, but the sensation is quick and over time, you should get used to the feeling.

How many appointments will I need?

You will only need the initial consultation to get started on your treatments, but once you begin, you will need to perform your injections once a week for about four months. You can also expect to come back into our Medical Spa about once a month so we can monitor your progress, see how your body is responding to the treatment, and up your dosage when necessary. Every patient will have different experiences so you may require a different time frame for your treatment. We will always keep you informed of how much longer we think you will need to continue taking your Semaglutide injections.

How long until I see results?

Every patient will react differently to the treatment, but you should expect significant improvements in your body’s shape and size in about four months of weekly injections.

Can I combine Semaglutide with other procedures?

Sure! Once you can get your weight in a manageable state, you may want to focus on body contouring to improve your silhouette. These procedures could be Velashape or a Non-Surgical Butt Lift with Sculptra. If you have a particular goal in mind, please discuss it during your consultation so your provider can offer their expert recommendations.

What are the risks associated with Semaglutide?

  • Allergic reactions (including swelling of the face, tongue, or throat; difficulty breathing)
  • Certain eye problems in people with Type 2 diabetes
