How Semaglutide Helps You Feel Full Longer

Semaglutide has been around for decades, being used primarily as a diabetic medication. It is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) receptor agonist that helps regulate the body’s blood sugar levels.

After patients continued to see an improvement in both their weight and physical health, Semaglutide became approved as a weight loss medication.

GLP-1 Regulates Blood Sugar Levels & Reduces Cravings

Both Semaglutide and Tirzepatide weight loss injection types are GLP-1 receptors, meaning they mimic the action of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide 1. After someone eats, blood sugar levels start to rise, and GLP-1 stimulates insulin production to lower the levels.

Not only does GLP-1 medication help control type 2 diabetes with insulin production, but it also curbs hunger and boosts weight loss. By slowing the movement of food from the stomach to the small intestine, you’ll feel fuller for longer, thereby eating less.

Tirzepatide Works Twice as Hard for Maximum Fat Loss

The main difference between Semaglutide and Tirzepatide is that Tirzepatide has a dual mechanism of action. Tirzepatide is also an injection-only medication.

Not only does Tirzepatide work on the GLP-1 receptor like Semaglutide, but it also works on the GIP receptor. That means you get all the benefits of Semaglutide, and then some.

How Tirzepatide Improves the Breakdown of Fatty Acids & Sugars

By stimulating the GIP receptor, Tirzepatide allows your body to use insulin more efficiently. This also causes a release of atopinectin, a protein hormone that improves the way your body breaks down fatty acids and sugars.

Medically Supervised Weight Loss Benefits

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide treatments finally make losing weight simpler. Weight loss programs like these bring many benefits for chronic weight management in adults struggling with obesity or who are overweight with one or more weight-related health problems. 

Top benefits of weight loss pills or injections include:

  • Long-term weight loss medication
  • Suppresses appetite to feel full longer
  • Reduces hunger cravings
  • Boosts metabolism
  • Improves your body’s ability to burn fat
  • Non-mood-altering medication

Many patients choose this form of treatment for the weight loss benefits and find themselves with improvements in other areas of their overall health. These medication types may lower the risk of heart disease, and improve blood pressure and cholesterol levels. 

It’s amazing how much better you feel mentally when your body is functioning at its best. 

Semaglutide Benefits

Semaglutide can be taken as an injection or an oral tablet, which gives patients a choice in how they take their medication. Along with regulating blood sugar levels, Semaglutide helps to improve glycemic control. This reduces hunger and cravings to help you take control of your diet. Many who are looking to lose around 20-25 pounds to reach their goals and feel confident often start with this medication. 

Some patients reach their maximum dosage on Semaglutide before switching over to Tirzepatide for its additional benefits.

Semaglutide Weight Loss Results

Patients on Semaglutide lose about 15-17% of their body weight. Some clients may notice a decline in their blood sugar levels within a week of treatment. However, it takes a full 8 weeks or longer for improvements to manifest fully. As Semaglutide is a long-acting medication, you receive it once weekly. As always, results will be different for everyone.

Semaglutide improves body composition by reducing excess body fat. Many patients ask us specifically about belly fat, which it does help with. Since you cannot “spot reduce” fat, it is not guaranteed you will see fat loss in the stomach area but you’ll lose pounds and be heading toward a your goal weight with less food cravings and better energy levels.

Tirzepatide Benefits

Tirzepatide has been found to be more effective for long-term weight loss in larger amounts. Tirzepatide can help the weight come off faster, because it is a stronger medication for those wanting to lose upwards of 50-100 pounds or more. 

Some individuals start with Tirzepatide to boost weight loss results before switching to Semaglutide to help maintain their weight. 

Tirzepatide Results

Patients see incredible results with Tirzepatide, reducing 20-25% of their body weight in time. One thing to remember is that diet and exercise are still a big part of these wellness treatments. We also help you lose weight by learning healthy lifestyle habits. This tailored program is meant to let you shed excess fat safely, with professional guidance.

Why You Should Go to a Medspa for Medical Weight Loss

Medical weight loss programs consist of a subcutaneous fat injection or oral tablet taken weekly depending on your prescription. At KP Aesthetics, our team will work with you to create a treatment plan for monitoring progress and adjusting dosages as necessary. 

Going to a reputable medspa for Semaglutide or Tirzepatide lets you have confidence in the safety of your treatment. Your dosage will increase over 16 to 20 weeks, gradually so as to avoid gastrointestinal problems.

Can You Get These Medications OTC?​

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are prescription medications. Neither are available over-the-counter; you must have an actual prescription from a medical provider like KP Aesthetics.

Weight Loss Medication Side Effects​

With either medication, the possible side effects are about the same. Patients can experience upset stomach, nausea, constipation, and/or acid reflux. More common side effects tend to improve with time. 

How Much Do Weight Loss Injections Cost?

Your specific cost will depend on which medication you choose, and what your dosage is with that medication. Semaglutide and other weight loss injections typically cost less than $1,000 per month. 

At KP Aesthetics, our Semaglutide and Tirzepatide pricing is $500 for your first month, and $600 for each following month with regular check-ins. 

We have a three month minimum so that you can truly get a feel for how the medication works with your body. If, after the three month period is over and your dosage goes up to continue maximizing pounds lost, pricing will reflect that increase. 

Who is a Candidate for Tirzepatide or Semaglutide?

These prescriptions have FDA approval as a weight loss treatment for general weight management and weight loss in obese or overweight adults. The ideal candidate is an adult with a BMI greater than 30 or a BMI of 27 with one or more weight-related medical concerns such as high cholesterol, hypertension, or heart disease.
