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.

I am first a mom. I was running a rat race of working, transporting kids, organizing at home, running a household, completing my workload; life. I’d forgotten about me. I looked in the full-length mirror one day and realized I needed a change. A big change… I wanted to resume a life that included ME… positivity for myself. I wanted to change the way I looked and I knew with that, I’d be empowered to know that I deserved that change. When I discovered Elevation Weight Loss, I was at the end of my personal confidence….it was all up from there!
I am now thinner and happier. I’m energized and evoked to stay the course. The course is easy to continue as the results are evident! Every day I am positive in my continued journey. With my weight loss, energy level, and continued confidence; I simply don’t waver. I have a goal in my life and the apparent accomplishment of it continues to hearten and fuel me on a daily basis.
Thank you, Elevation! I don’t like cliches and I’ve never believed in them until now; but I am new, changed, fresh, and WORTHY. With my personal goal achieved, I know I can do anything.
Go out there and grab your brass ring, you’ll be so proud of yourself. I am proud for the first time in a long time. The number on the scale is smaller, but my confidence is exponentially larger!
This program was truly the catalyst I needed to change physically; and, in turn; change internally. I am forever grateful.

1 ml injection of Vitamin C on buttocks once daily for increased immunity.
DESCRIPTION: Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C) is a water-soluble vitamin. It occurs as a white or slightly yellow crystal or powder with a light acidic taste. It is an antiscorbutic product.
On exposure to air and light it gradually darkens. In the dry state it is reasonably stable in air, but in solution it rapidly oxidizes. Ascorbic Acid is freely soluble in water sparingly soluble in alcohol insoluble in chloroform, ether, and benzene.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE: Ascorbic acid is recommended for the prevention and treatment of scurvy. Its parenteral administration is desirable for patients with an acute deficiency or for those whose absorption of orally ingested ascorbic acid is uncertain. Symptoms of mild deficiency may include faulty bone and tooth development, gingivitis, bleeding gums, and loosened teeth. Febril states, chronic illness, and infection (pneumonia, whooping cough, tuberculosis, diphtheria, sinusitis, rheumatic fever, etc.) increases the need for ascorbic acid. Hemovascular disorders, burns, delayed fracture and wound healing are indications for an increase in the daily intake. CONTRAINDICATIONS: There are no contraindications to the administration of ascorbic acid.
WARNINGS: Diabetics, patients prone to recurrent renal calculi, those undergoing stool occult blood tests and those on sodium restricted diets or anticoagulant therapy should not take excessive doses of ascorbic acid over an extended period of time.
