Which treatments can help with weight loss?

Many people share the goal of losing weight, but only some know how to get started and see their desired results. Losing weight can have major benefits for your cardiovascular health and overall well-being, but sometimes it’s difficult to lose weight with healthy habit changes alone. 

Micari Aesthetics offers weight loss treatment with semaglutide, a medication that stifles your appetite and regulates your blood sugar. It’s a long-time diabetes treatment that’s now available for long-term weight management. 

To see results from semaglutide for weight loss, you must follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen alongside your treatment. Plan on permanently adopting healthy habits so you can avoid gaining weight back. 

Am I a good candidate for weight loss treatments?

You should visit Micari Aesthetics for a weight loss consultation to find out if you’re a good candidate for treatment with semaglutide. The team reviews your medical history, performs a physical exam, and provides blood work to verify that you’re in good health and that semaglutide is a good fit for you. 

To be a candidate for weight loss medications like semaglutide, you must be overweight or obese with either a body mass index of over 30 or over 27 with existing weight-related conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol. 

How long does weight loss treatment take?

The typical duration of semaglutide treatment is 3-6 months. During that time, you visit Micari Aesthetics every week for check-ins with the team. They provide the medication in the form of an injection during these visits. 

Your semaglutide dosage is gradually increased once you start treatment. The team monitors you to help reduce your chances of experiencing side effects like nausea, headaches, and fatigue. If you experience issues, they should subside after your first few weeks of using semaglutide. 

How does weight loss benefit my health?

Healthy and controlled weight loss can have many positive impacts on your health, including:

  • Lower blood sugar and diabetes control
  • Reduced risk of life-threatening events like heart attack and stroke
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduced cancer risk
