Semaglutide and Tirzepatide Treatments for Medical Weight Loss at Aesthetix LAB

Led by Dr. Monica Bonakdar, a renowned weight management specialist, Aesthetix LAB in Dana Point, CA offers Semaglutide and Tirzepatide injections to get you going on your weight loss journey. These medications can help you achieve your goals by reducing cravings, promoting a feeling of fullness, and supporting long-term weight control

What is Semaglutide?

Our bodies are like intricate ecosystems, and the gut plays a huge role in managing our weight. Semaglutide, a type of prescription drug, acts like a natural hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). This hormone acts as a messenger within the digestive system, influencing feelings of hunger and satiety. When GLP-1 levels are low, we may crave more food and struggle to feel satisfied after meals.

Semaglutide steps in by boosting GLP-1 activity, sending signals to the brain that you've had enough. This can lead to a naturally decreased calorie intake and a more manageable appetite. Additionally, Semaglutide slows down stomach emptying, keeping you feeling fuller for longer and supporting long-term weight control.

But Semaglutide's benefits extend beyond simply feeling satisfied. It also helps regulate insulin, a crucial hormone for blood sugar control. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with type 2 diabetes, as Semaglutide can work alongside other medications to effectively manage blood sugar levels

What is Tirzepatide?

While Semaglutide offers a powerful approach to weight management, Tirzepatide takes a unique multi-faceted approach. It combines the GLP-1 mimicking effects of Semaglutide with another hormone called gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) that also affects hunger and fullness. By targeting both GLP-1 and GIP, Tirzepatide leads to an even greater feeling of fullness and even more significant weight loss compared to Semaglutide alone.

Medical Weight Loss Benefits

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide offer a range of benefits that extend beyond weight loss, paving the way for a healthier lifestyle:

Improved Sleep 

Frequent hunger pangs can disrupt sleep, leading to restless nights. These medications help regulate appetite and promote satiety, promoting deeper and more restful sleep

Enhanced Energy Levels

Blood sugar spikes and crashes can leave you feeling drained and lethargic. Semaglutide's ability to regulate blood sugar levels can translate into sustained energy throughout the day, allowing you to tackle your activities with renewed vigor.

Reduced Risk of Chronic Conditions

Obesity is a major risk factor for various health issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. By facilitating weight loss and encouraging healthy lifestyle changes (diet and exercise), Semaglutide and Tirzepatide can significantly reduce your risk of developing these conditions, promoting overall well-being.

Medical Weight Loss Candidates

Sometimes diet and exercise are just not enough. Especially if you’ve tried everything, you may be a good candidate for Semaglutide or Tirzepatide. These weight loss medications are typically prescribed if you have a Body Mass Index, BMI for short, above 27. Schedule a consultation with our weight loss specialists at Aesthetix LAB. In the consultation, we will go over your medical history and to help determine what your goals are and if these medications are right for you. 

How is Semaglutide Administered?

It’s an injectable medication that you can give yourself at the comfort of your own home. We will give you instructions and enough information so that you feel comfortable with self-injectecting. If this method is not for you or you are concerned about it, Aesthetix LAB specialists can schedule in office appointments for your weekly injections. 

Taking a Semaglutide injection is a simple and painless process. No numbing cream or anesthesia is required. The designated area on your abdomen, thigh, or upper arm is first cleaned with an alcohol swab. Then, a small skin fold is created, and the medication is injected through a tiny needle. This fine needle ensures a quick and virtually painless experience.

Reaching Your Goals and Maintaining Results

While individual results may vary, many patients experience noticeable weight loss within a few weeks on Semaglutide and Tirzepatide. Medical studies have shown an average weight loss of 14.8% of body weight with Semaglutide and 20.9% of body weight with Tirzepatide.

It's important to remember that these medications are designed for long-term use to maintain results. Combining them with healthy lifestyle habits like a balanced diet and regular exercise is crucial for long-term success. At Aesthetix LAB, our team is dedicated to supporting and guiding you throughout your weight loss journey.
