Semaglutide Injections Q&A

What are semaglutide injections?

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist that mimics your body’s GLP-1 hormone. This hormone, released in your gut when you eat, helps you feel full and satiated. It can also reduce cravings. When you feel full for longer, you’re less likely to overeat and give in to unhealthy food cravings or temptations.

Semaglutide also increases insulin, which reduces blood sugar in your body. Doctors have used semaglutide injections to help treat Type 2 diabetes for decades.

Who should consider semaglutide injections?

The Pure Bliss Medspa team may recommend semaglutide injections if you have:

  • A body mass index (BMI) over 30
  • A BMI over 27 and at least one weight-related condition (hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, etc.)
  • Struggled with previous weight loss attempts
  • Are in good overall health

A comprehensive physical evaluation and medical history review are essential to determine whether you’re a candidate for semaglutide injections.

What can I expect from semaglutide injections?

When you visit for your semaglutide injections at Pure Bliss Medspa, you can expect a personalized and supportive experience tailored to your weight loss goals. First, you meet with the team to discuss your medical history, current medications, and weight loss objectives. 

The team explains how semaglutide works and addresses any questions or concerns you may have. Once you’re ready to proceed, a team member administers the injection, typically into the fatty tissue of your abdomen or thigh. The injection process is quick and relatively painless. 

After your first visit, you receive instructions on how to continue with the medication, including dosage and any potential side effects to watch for. The team provides ongoing support throughout your journey, monitoring your progress and adjusting your treatment as needed.

Do semaglutide injections have side effects?

Semaglutide injections can cause side effects such as:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Gas and bloating
  • Constipation

Following a healthy diet may help minimize these side effects and keep you feeling comfortable as you adjust to the medication. The team may recommend limiting or avoiding alcohol, high-fat dairy products, greasy foods, and carbonated sodas. Kale, broccoli, beans, and other high-fiber foods can also increase gas and bloating.

With semaglutide injections, you can achieve and maintain a healthier weight, feel more energetic, and boost your confidence.
