Medical Weight Loss

What is Medical Weight Loss?

Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is essential for overall well-being, reducing the risk of chronic diseases and enhancing quality of life and happiness. Despite the challenges posed by genetics, lifestyle habits and metabolic differences, medical weight loss injections offer a promising solution. At Meg & Co. we offer both Semaglutide and Tirzepatide injections.

What Are Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?

Semaglutide works by mimicking the GLP-1 hormone, which slows down your digestion making you feel fuller longer. Semaglutide reduces appetite and food cravings, leading to decreased calorie intake and sustainable weight loss.

Tirzepatide targets both GIP and GLP-1 hormones that regulate appetite and blood sugar levels, helping reduce hunger and promote a feeling of fullness, leading to significant weight loss.

How do Semaglutide and Tirzepatide Work?

Semaglutide:

  • Appetite Suppression: Semaglutide slows gastric emptying, which helps reduce appetite and calorie intake.
  • Blood Sugar Control: It enhances insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon release, which helps stabilize blood sugar levels.
  • Weight Loss: By reducing hunger and promoting satiety, Semaglutide supports sustained weight loss.

Tirzepatide:

  • Dual Action: Combines the effects of GLP-1 and GIP to enhance weight loss and improve metabolic health.
  • Appetite Regulation: It reduces hunger and increases the feeling of fullness after meals.
  • Metabolic Benefits: Improves insulin sensitivity and helps control blood sugar levels, which can contribute to weight reduction.

Benefits of Semaglutide and Tirzepatide Injections

  • Significant Weight Loss: Clinical trials have shown substantial weight loss in individuals using these medications.
  • Improved Metabolic Health: Both medications help improve insulin sensitivity and control blood sugar levels.
  • Appetite Control: They effectively reduce hunger and enhance satiety, making it easier to adhere to a healthy diet.
  • Convenient Administration: These medications are administered via a simple injection, typically once a week.

Potential Side Effects

While Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are generally well-tolerated, some individuals may experience side effects, including:

  • Nausea and Vomiting: Common during the initial stages of treatment as the body adjusts.
  • Diarrhea or Constipation: Gastrointestinal issues may occur but often subside over time.
  • Injection Site Reactions: Mild discomfort or irritation at the injection site.
  • Low Blood Sugar: Rare but possible, especially when combined with other diabetes medications.

Consultation and Treatment Plan

 

If you are considering Semaglutide or Tirzepatide injections for weight loss, we welcome you to come in and consult with us. We can assess your medical history and blood work, discuss potential benefits and risks, and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Maintaining Muscle while taking Semaglutide and Tirzepatide

While Semaglutide is effective for weight loss, there is a potential risk of muscle loss if proper precautions are not taken. At Meg & Co. we have the solution for you!

AccuFit body contouring is a non-invasive procedure that uses electrical muscle stimulation to strengthen, tone and sculpt the body. It targets specific muscle groups, mimicking the effects of a workout by inducing muscle contractions. One 30 minute treatment is equivalent to hours in the gym!

To maintain muscle mass and enhance your results, it is recommended to include Accufit along with consistent strength training for the entirety of the time you are taking weight loss injections.

When combined with Semaglutide or Tirzepatide for weight loss, Accufit can transform your body!

Maintaining Skin Laxity while taking Semaglutide and Tirzepatide

When losing weight we run the risk of losing skin laxity and having loose sagging skin. For all of our weight loss clients we recommend starting Sofwave and/or Genius RF microneedling as soon as you start the weight loss process. Both Sofwave and Genius RF microneedling stimulate collagen production and tightens the skin. When paired with Semaglutide treatments, Sofwave and Genius RF Microneedling can help address skin laxity that might arise as a result of weight loss and fat reduction. This combination ensures that patients not only achieve their desired body shape but also enjoy smoother, firmer skin.

Book a consultation to determine if Sofwave or Genius RF Microneedling are the skin tightening solution for you.
