Weight Loss

Approximately 70% of American adults struggle with obesity or are overweight. Having a higher weight brings secondary problems which include diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, increased risk for strokes and psychological problems.

If you have found yourself trying different dietary plans and working out without success, semaglutide may be another option to help you obtain your goals.

Semaglutide

Semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy) is an injectable medication that is used to treat those struggling with weight management. It is FDA approved for weight loss in adults with obesity with a BMI of 27 or greater.

Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) which targets areas of the bran that regulate appetite and food intake. This medications in turn will decrease hunger and increase fullness after eating. The delay in gastric emptying can reduce appetite, improve control of eating and reduce food cravings.

It is recommended to be used with both diet and exercise for optimal results.

Am I a candidate?

The qualifications for GLP-1 medications for obesity treatment:

  • A BMI over 30 and no weight-related complications
  • A BMI over 27 with weight-related complications

If your BMI does not quite meet those numbers, you may still qualify if your body composition determined in the office shows excess fat.

I have been searching for someone to do my fillers, without having to drive an hour away to do so! I was so excited to see that Lauren is in Toms River. She is super sweet and very professional. Not to mention, she has the cutest space! I'm officially wrinkle free and already looking forward to my next appointment with her!

The service I received at Lola J. Aesthetics was fantastic. It was my first time gettingBotox injections and Lauren was patient throughout the entire process. She spent time explaining how and what she would be doing for each step and it made for a very calming experience. It's been about 2 weeks since I had the injections and the results are amazing. I've already gotten so many compliments on how smooth and young my skin looks! Highly recommend!
