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.

Semaglutide Peptide Diet Shots Service Fees

  • 0.25 mg (7 days) $90

1 week of semaglutide 0.25 mg  FDA-approved peptide diet shot + B12 & Lipo shot

  • 1 mg or 1.7 mg (30 days) $365

1 month of semaglutide 1 mg or 1.7 mg  FDA-approved peptide diet shot + B12 & Lipo shot

  • 0.25 or 0.5 mg (30 days) $265

1 month of semaglutide 0.25 or 0.5 mg  FDA-approved peptide diet shot + B12 & Lipo shot

  • 2.4 mg (30 days) $450

1 month of semaglutide 2.4 mg  FDA-approved peptide diet shot + B12 & Lipo shot (4 doses)

Patients who have a history or diagnosis of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN II) are not eligible to receive semaglutide.

Semaglutide can be used in conjunction with HCG, phentermine, and or sermorelin for the best results.

Increase Your Protein Intake to Lose More Weight

Frequently we will have clients come to us with questions regarding how to lose weight more quickly or to continue losing when they have hit a stand-still.  As previously discussed in our article, 7 Tips on How To Break the Weight Loss Plateau, one of the easier options is just to increase your protein consumption.

If your physician has medically cleared you to consume more protein, you may want to replace a 300-400 calories meal with a side of green vegetables and several ounces of very lean meat (turkey breast, chicken breast etc.) OR 2-3 scoops of a lean protein powder.

Look at how slim we are, and we just take pictures with the protein

We have personally taste-tested and reviewed in detail nutritional information on more than half a dozen protein powders.

Our personal top pick is OPTIMUM NUTRITION WHEY PROTEIN
Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder
Double Rich Chocolate or Vanilla flavor
5 Pound for $58 at GNC stores or Amazon.com *

DSC_7596
Remy + Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein

When you drink 3 scoops of protein mixed with cold water, you are consuming 360 calories and that has 72 grams protein & 9 grams carbs. This will serve as a meal replacement for your busy schedule and help you get more protein in your diet.
