As we get older, losing weight can be more difficult and sometimes dieting and exercise alone just isn’t enough. At the Wellness Center at CAPS, we believe in taking a holistic and biomedical approach to improving your mind and body. That’s why we’ve developed a medical weight loss program utilizing proven methods and medicine, such as Semaglutide.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medical prescription used for managing adult weight loss. When used with a healthy lifestyle that includes mindful eating habits and exercise, Semaglutide is a powerful long-term weight loss solution that can improve overall health and wellness. 

How Does Semaglutide Work For Weight Loss?

The Semaglutide injection is administered once a week to help with long-term weight management. The injectable glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an incretin that plays a major role in your appetite and digestion. Incretins (hormones released by your small intestine) are sent out by your body after you’ve eaten a meal to help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin and blocking other sources of sugar. 

The Semaglutide injection works by slowing down how quickly food leaves your stomach and allows you to feel full for a longer period of time. By reducing hunger, lowering your appetite and increasing feelings of fullness, it will reduce your calorie intake and allow you to lose weight, 1-2 pounds a week. 

The Semiglutide prescribed injection can be given to yourself just under the skin in your abdomen. It should be administered once a week on the same day each week and can be given at any time of day, with or without food. 

Who is Semaglutide Meant For?

Semaglutide is meant for adults who struggle with obesity, excess weight or adults who have weight-related medical problems such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol. To be in accordance with FDA guidelines, an individual must be within a specific BMI range to be prescribed Semaglutide and take part in CAPS’ medical weight loss program. To determine if Semaglutide is right for you, schedule a consultation with our Wellness specialists today. 

The Medical Weight Loss Program at CAPS

The Wellness Center experts are dedicated to helping our patients improve their overall health so they can live life abundantly. Our medical weight loss program is a monthly plan customized to your personal needs and weight loss goals. The introductory price of our  medical weight loss program is $399/month and includes the tools you’ll need to lose weight and keep it off. The program includes:

  • An initial consultation to determine if Semaglutide is right for you based on your BMI and medical and weight history. If our specialists determine that Semaglutide is right for you, we will develop your plan together so you can get started right away. If you qualify for the program, your first injection will be administered during your initial visit. Teaching will be provided so you can learn how to administer the injection on your own. 

  • Monthly consultations with our specialists to review your progress, provide lifestyle coaching and ensure you’re on track to meet your goals.

  • Your weekly prescription of Semaglutide.

The goal of our program is to meet your desired weight by administering Semaglutide and developing a healthy lifestyle. Once you’ve achieved your weight loss goal, your Wellness Center provider will work with you to decrease your medication dosage if able. With the help of your improved sleep, diet and physical activities, many patients will be able to take a significantly smaller dosage and some patients will be able to stop the medication completely. If for some reason your goals are not met, our Wellness Center experts can perform a 360° evaluation of your hormones, gut health and metabolic markers to understand what may be preventing your body from losing weight. 

How Long Does It Take To Lose Weight On Semaglutide?

While quick fixes and crash diets can help you lose weight, the results aren’t long-lasting. Our Medical Weight Loss Program with Semaglutide includes goal-oriented plans and lifestyle changing skills to ensure your results are long-lasting. 

Patients will start to see the effects of Semaglutide working after the first dose and should start experiencing weight loss within the first two weeks of their program. Everyone’s weight loss journey looks different and how much weight you have to lose will dictate the duration of your program. However, it is typical for patients to lose 1-2 pounds a week or 8-10 pounds a month, but results vary per person. It’s important to remember that the best results will happen when you are using your medication in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
