Semaglutide FAQs

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?

Semaglutide is an overall safe and effective treatment for weight loss, but since it does involve the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, there are some side effects involved, which can include:

  • Bloating
  • Burping
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Vomiting

While these reactions are normal, if you do experience these side effects, please tell us, as it may be adjusted with a change in your dosage.

On rare occasions, Semaglutide has shown some more severe side effects during testing, including:

  • Allergic reactions (including swelling of the face, tongue, or throat; difficulty breathing)
  • Certain eye problems in people with Type 2 diabetes
  • Cholelithiasis (gallbladder disease)
  • Fast heart rate
  • Kidney damage
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Pancreatitis (inflamed pancreas)
  • Suicidal thoughts and behavior
  • Thyroid C-cell tumors

If you begin to notice any of these reactions or a change in your or your child’s behavior, please contact your nearest Personique On The Spot location immediately.
