Semaglutide (Wegovy) Once Weekly Weight Loss Injection Now Available!

Elevation Medical is implementing a new program in our weight loss facilities. We will be offering semaglutide, an FDA-approved once-weekly subcutaneous (under the skin) weight loss injection.

Semaglutide has been around for many years to help diabetic patients control their blood sugar levels. This injection was also found to reduce weight.  Since diabetic patients started losing weight on semaglutide, it was studied to be used as a weight-loss injectable medication. Since June 2021, semaglutide under the brand name Wegovy was FDA approved for long-term weight loss.

Semaglutide is 94% similar to natural human glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1), which decreases blood sugar levels in a glucose-dependent manner by enhancing the secretion of insulin. GLP-1 acts as a physiological regulator of appetite and thereby reducing food intake by reducing feelings of hunger and increasing feelings of fullness/satiety.

Patients can choose to receive semaglutide for only 1 week as a trial for $90 including B12 and lipotropic shot., or 4, 8, and 12 weeks. Please be advised that semaglutide is dose-dependent upon the duration of use; meaning the longer you use it, the higher your dose will be and up to 2.4mg/week.
