Medical Weight Loss

Medical Weight Loss

We offer medically supervised weight loss treatment options with prescription medications.

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide receptor antogonist which improves glycemic control in the pancreas. Semaglutide will delay gastric emptying (by reducing glucogon secretion) which reduces appetite, lowers sugar cravings and improves overall ability to control eating habits.

Benefits of taking Semaglutide once a week include

  • Weight Loss (on average 15 pounds per month)
  • Improved Sleep
  • Reduced appetite
  • Improved fertility
  • Reduction in PCOS symptoms
  • Increases sugar metabolism (lower blood sugar)

The Skin Clinic WELL method for weight loss and wellness

The Skin Clinic offers 3 different programs for weight loss and hormone optimization therapy. We start with lab work to look at the whole picture which can help you determine which is the best option for you. 

The New England Journal of Medicine conducted a study of over 1900 adults to identify if Semaglutide would actually help in weight loss, and by how much. The participants lost an average of 14.9% in body weight, without a special diet, without an exercise routine, and without additional medication and the FDA recently approved this medication for weight loss. Additional benefits of taking Semaglutide weekly improved cardiometabolic health, which includes a reduction in insulin resistance and a reduction in metabolic disorder and less risk for cardiovascular disease.

Semaglutide is a safe and proven method to losing weight and improving our metabolic health but is very expensive and often not covered by medical insurance. At the Skin Clinic, we have an option that makes it more affordable than $1200-$1800 per month that is what patients are finding it to cost when they arrive at their pharmacy.
