As you know, being overweight or obese puts you at higher risk for health problems like diabetes, heart disease, and joint pain. But as we all know, losing those stubborn extra pounds can feel like an uphill battle most of the time.

But what if there was a new, effective way to finally win the fight against the bulge? At Ethos Spa, we’re excited to now offer semaglutide peptide treatments to help you lose weight and improve your health.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an injectable peptide medication derived from human glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). It was originally developed as a treatment for type 2 diabetes, but has shown remarkable success in weight loss trials. 

Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1, a hormone that reduces appetite and food intake.

How Does Semaglutide Promote Weight Loss?

Semaglutide helps you lose weight through the following mechanisms:

  • Appetite Suppression – Semaglutide activates brain receptors involved in food intake regulation. This suppresses appetite, so you feel less hungry and eat smaller portions.
  • Reduced Cravings – The peptide decreases cravings for unhealthy, high-calorie foods. This makes it easier to stick to a healthy diet.
  • Slowed Digestion – Semaglutide slows the speed at which food empties from your stomach. This leaves you feeling fuller longer after eating.
  • Improved Satiety – By impacting digestion hormones, semaglutide improves feelings of satiety (fullness). This causes you to feel satisfied with smaller amounts of food.

Together, these effects mean you eat less at each meal, have fewer food cravings, and feel fuller faster. This creates a calorie deficit that prompts the body to burn stored fat for energy, leading to weight loss over time.

What Are The Benefits Of Semaglutide For Weight Loss?

There are many benefits that make semaglutide an appealing weight loss solution:

  • Clinically proven safe and effective – Semaglutide is FDA approved for chronic weight management based on rigorous clinical trials demonstrating its safety and efficacy.
  • Long-lasting results – Unlike many diet aids, semaglutide promotes lasting weight loss when combined with lifestyle changes. Effects can persist long after stopping treatment.
  • Promotes fat loss not muscle loss – Semaglutide spurs fat loss rather than muscle breakdown, so you lose pounds but not tone. This is key for sustainable results.
  • Convenient injections – Semaglutide is given via quick, easy self-administered injections. There’s no surgery or clinic visits required.
  • Improves health markers – Beyond weight loss, semaglutide also lowers blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol. This leads to reduced risk of weight-related diseases.
  • Non-addictive – Semaglutide does not lead to addiction or dependence, allowing for long-term use.

For these reasons, semaglutide offers an excellent medical option for losing weight as well as maintaining results long-term.

In clinical studies, semaglutide has been shown to produce significant weight loss when used along with dietary changes and increased physical activity.

On average, people using semaglutide lose around 12-15% of their body weight over the course of treatment. Some studies found up to 17% total weight loss after 68 weeks of semaglutide use.

Importantly, 85-90% of the weight lost with semaglutide is fat mass. The amount and pace of weight loss will vary based on your individual factors. But most people begin noticing a difference on the scale within 8 to 12 weeks.

Many also reported improvements in waist circumference, body mass index (BMI), and other weight-related markers. Plus, the effects of semaglutide persist even after treatment stops. One study found ~80% of semaglutide-induced weight loss was maintained two years after discontinuation.

How Is Semaglutide Peptide Therapy Administered?

One of the biggest perks of semaglutide therapy is the convenience of the treatment process. Semaglutide is administered via simple subcutaneous injections, similar to insulin injections used in diabetes treatment.

Here is the standard regimen for semaglutide peptide injections:

  • Initiation phase – Treatment is started at a low dose which is gradually ramped up over 5 weeks. This allows your body to adjust and minimizes side effects.
  • Maintenance phase – Once the maximum dose is reached, this dose is maintained for the duration of therapy. The maintenance phase is where optimal weight loss results occur.
  • Duration – Treatment is continued until the desired amount of weight is lost, generally 6 to 12 months or longer depending on your goals.
  • Administration – Injections are self-administered under the skin of the abdomen, thigh, or arm using a small needle. The medication comes in an easy-to-use pen device.
  • Frequency – Semaglutide is taken once weekly at any time of day, on the same day each week.

The simple weekly injections allow you to lose weight without undergoing surgery or significant disruptions to your lifestyle. We’ll provide proper training on preparing and self-injecting your prescribed semaglutide dose.
