Semaglutide for Weight Loss

Sustainable, Healthy Weight Loss

Why Semaglutide Weight Loss?

At BelleSoul Aesthetics, a boutique medical spa in Scarborough, ME, we offer Semaglutide Weight Loss Program which has been designed to empower individuals on their journey towards achieving sustainable and healthy weight loss. Our commitment is to guide and support clients through a comprehensive program by leveraging the benefits of Semaglutide to foster lasting well-being. We look forward to being a part of your transformative journey toward achieving a healthier lifestyle.

Our program is designed specifically for adult clients. We ask for an 8-12 week commitment, depending on the desired weight loss goals, along with maintenance and gradual tapering off. During your office visits, we will monitor your weight (including body composition), assess vital signs, review symptoms, adjust doses as needed, and track your progress with diet and exercise.

If you are interested in using Semaglutide injections for weight loss, prior consultation is required with Anna Stasiv, Board Certified Nurse Practitioner, to determine if it is a safe and appropriate weight loss option for you. Anna will conduct a comprehensive medical history and physical examination. If you are identified as a suitable candidate, we will proceed with enrolling you in our weight loss program and design a personalized treatment plan specific for you.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) agonists, which mimic the hormone GLP-1 in your body to lower blood sugar levels after a meal and increase satiety. It is an injectable medication that has been used to manage Type 2 diabetes. In addition to blood sugar-lowering effects, Semaglutide injections have been also found to help with weight loss. Semaglutide injections have been approved by the FDA since 2021 as weight loss treatment for individuals who are obese or overweight and have at least one weight-related medical condition. For best results, Semaglutide should be used in combination with decreased calorie intake, increased nutrient-dense diet, and increased physical activity.

Weight loss with Semaglutide injections is achieved through a mechanism of appetite suppression and feeling of satiety which results in decreased calorie consumption. Studies have shown that individuals who take Semaglutide injections for weight loss can expect to lose average of 10%-15% of their body weight over the course of a year. However, weight loss is an individual journey that depends on many factors, and the exact amount of weight loss can’t be guaranteed.

Potential Health Benefits of Weight Loss:

  • Decreases risk of cardiovascular disease by improving blood pressure and cholesterol.
  • Decreases risk of adult onset diabetes mellitus.
  • Decreases risk of developing arthritis or musculoskeletal conditions that are caused by excessive weight.
  • Improves sleep apnea symptoms.
  • Reduces depression related to an excess weight and improves emotional and psychological well-being.
  • Increases ability to be more physically active and improves overall quality of life.

During your consultation with Anna, Nurse Practitioner, side effects and contraindications will be discussed in detail.
