What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. GLP-1 is a naturally occurring hormone in the body that plays a key role in regulating blood sugar levels and appetite. While originally intended for use as a diabetes medication, it has been shown to be a highly effective and safe choice in supporting weight loss.
By mimicking the effects of GLP-1, Semaglutide helps to reduce hunger and increase feelings of fullness, leading to a reduction in calorie intake and subsequent weight loss.
How does Semaglutide work for weight loss?
Semaglutide works by affecting the areas of the brain that control appetite and food intake. By reducing hunger and increasing feelings of fullness, people taking semaglutide may be more likely to eat less and stick to a healthier diet. This makes a reduced-calorie diet easier to maintain and can prevent further weight gain.
In addition, semaglutide may also help to reduce the amount of fat stored in the body, which can further contribute to weight loss.
Benefits of Semaglutide for weight loss
Semaglutide has been shown to be highly effective in promoting weight loss in clinical trials. In recent studies, patients displayed significant results, with 6% weight loss achieved by week 12 and 12% achieved by week 28. People with obesity also saw improvements in other health markers, such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar control
In addition to its weight loss benefits, Semaglutide may also have other health benefits, especially for patients with obesity who are facing related health conditions. For example, it has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation, which could be beneficial for people with conditions such as type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.

Enhancing results with body contouring
Body contouring is an excellent way to enhance the results of weight loss with Semaglutide. After losing a significant amount of weight, many people are left with excess skin that can cause sagging or dimpling.
Your weight loss journey can be perfectly complimented by body contouring procedures such as radiofrequency skin tightening with EndyMed and Agnes RF microneedling. These treatments work by stimulating collagen production and remodeling the skin from deep within, to restore the elasticity and firmness of the skin.
Body contouring at Vitality rejuvenates the overlying skin, creating a smoother and more toned appearance!
- Reduce stubborn body fat
- Smooth cellulite & dimpling
- Tighten sagging skin
