Semaglutide for Weight Loss 

Whether or not you have been struggling to shed extra pounds, you’ve probably heard the buzz about semaglutide weight loss treatments. For Houston men and women who want to lose weight and reduce other weight-related health risks, we offer the #CashedOut semaglutide program. It is an accessible and effective weight management solution that helps people significantly reduce their body weight.

Despite all the headlines, semaglutide injections aren’t just a trend. Our semaglutide + B-12 shots are a life-changing tool to help you achieve and maintain your ideal weight—especially when combined with other healthy lifestyle habits.

What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a hormone-based medication that treats obesity like a chronic metabolic disease. It belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists, initially approved by the FDA for successfully managing diabetes. Semaglutide mimics a natural hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that regulates blood sugar levels. In addition to triggering the body to produce insulin and reduce blood sugar levels, it signals your brain that you’re full, curbing appetite cravings to accelerate weight loss.

Benefits of Semaglutide

Our weekly semaglutide shots safely and effectively spark rapid weight loss and boost overall health. Here are some key benefits of our #CashedOut weekly semaglutide + B-12 treatment:

  • Reduces appetite cravings
  • Stimulates feelings of fullness
  • Stabilizes blood sugar levels
  • Boosts energy
  • Promotes the breakdown of visceral (belly) fat
  • Reduces the risk of major cardiovascular events
  • Enhances body image
  • Assists in reaching pre-surgery weight/ BMI

Am I a Good Candidate for Semaglutide?

Patients with an elevated BMI who struggle to maintain a healthy baseline weight are typically ideal candidates for our #CashedOut weight loss program. We’ll assess your candidacy for semaglutide treatment during a one-on-one consultation that includes:

  1. Reviewing your health history
  2. Measuring your body mass index (BMI)
  3. Customizing a treatment plan to help you safely achieve your weight loss goals

We do not recommend semaglutide as a weight management solution for individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding or for those who have a preexisting condition such as kidney or liver problems.

Is Semaglutide Safe? What Are the Side Effects?

Besides welcoming weight loss as a side effect of semaglutide treatment, some patients experience short-term mild to moderate nausea, diarrhea, or constipation. We can often manage these side effects by adjusting the dosage of your injections. We also want to emphasize that semaglutide injections are FDA-approved for the long-term treatment of obesity. You can rest assured that we keep your safety top-of-mind when customizing your #CashedOut weight management program.
