Semaglutide & Weight Loss Injections | Fort Worth, Texas Med Spa

Looking for "Wegovy" or "Ozempic" for weight loss in Fort Worth, Texas?

WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED!

Weight loss injections are all the buzz! There have been so many questions (and false information) shared on the internet, so we wanted to take a few minutes and talk about the REAL FACTS about #Semaglutide!


Originally, "Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, or GLP-1 RAs. It mimics the GLP-1 hormone, released in the gut in response to eating.


One role of GLP-1 is to prompt the body to produce more insulin, which reduces blood sugar (glucose). For that reason, health care providers have used semaglutide for more than 15 years to treat Type 2 diabetes.


But GLP-1 in higher amounts also interacts with the parts of the brain that suppress your appetite and signal you to feel full. When used in conjunction with diet and exercise, it can cause significant weight loss — and a reduced risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease — in people who are obese or overweight." 1


In 2021, the FDA cleared the weight loss drug with a once weekly injection with the active ingredient; semaglutide.



Semaglutide Weight Loss Benefits

Weight Loss IS a medical condition. It can cause depression, stress, addictive behaviors and has the potential to keep you from living your best life! Our clients who are using these injections for medical weight loss are thriving and living the life they intended for themselves.

Our team is dedicated to consistent monitoring of our patients, evaluating their successes every step of their weight loss journey and working with our clients to create healthy habits and lifestyle changes that better reflect their own goals.

While this weight loss injection is widely available through 3rd party sites, we highly encourage you to work with a Doctor through your weight loss journey. We encourage healthy habits, modified eating regime and manageable exercise for long term, manageable weight loss.

Both men and women can potentially lose up to 20 lbs in the first month and maintain approximately 2-4 pounds per week afterwards while keeping the injection regime. You only need one injection per week to experience reduced appetite, increased metabolism and other physical & emotional benefits. Some of the benefits of using a weight loss injection include:

  • Appetite Suppressant for Long-term Weight Loss

  • Helps Reduce Food Intake or "Boredom Eating"

  • Helps with Mood and Anxiety about Eating

  • Reduces Body Fat Mass and overall weight

  • You can use with other medications

  • Minimal side effects



How Much does Semaglutide Cost?


We've been told our pricing for Semaglutide is the best in the area! The cost of Semaglutide weight loss injections depends on several factors. It varies clinic to clinic, the brand prescribed as well as your initial weight before starting the injections that may require additional treatments.


We start with a consultation with Dr. Julie Ratino to discuss your medical history, we answer any questions you have about the injections and we will assess your weight loss goals! On average,


Regarding pricing, your first vial of Semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy) medication costs between $250-$300. It will last 6-8 weeks depending on your personalized dosing schedule. If you continue after that, the second vial is also $250-$300 but will last 9-10 weeks.


We now offer #Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) as well!



Are there other Weight Loss Options?


Yes! If Semaglutide or Tirzepatide isn't an option for you, we also have prescription Phentermine which is a widely-used diet pill and appetite suppressant. It's a short term solution for weight loss and more affordable than Semaglutide.


We also have ProPatch Sculpt Patches clients use for weight loss! Several clients have a hard time taking pills and multiple vitamins per day, so the patch is SOOOOooo convenient for weight loss! You wear the patch for 8 hours daily and the vitamins & minerals help curb your appetite! It's a great alternative if injections or medication aren't for you! You can pick up a 90-day box in our office..

If you have questions, our consults are free to learn if Semaglutide or Phentermine is right for you! We want you to be as informed as you can so we can help you with your health and wellness journey! We're your doctor/nurse team for all things weight loss...
