A Weekly Shot to Lose Weight

Weight loss can be a very difficult process. Though you may be putting in extra hours at the gym, you may find that your efforts often feel wasted because your body seems to cling to stubborn fat. There are hundreds if not thousands of weight loss products on the market today, but few deliver results. The weight loss injections at McLean & Potomac Dermatology are different.

These injections were originally approved for diabetes management but have recently gained attention for their remarkable efficacy in weight loss. Now, we’re here to provide Semaglutide and Tirzepatide to you.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an active ingredient belonging to the class of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). Originally designed to treat type 2 diabetes, it has also demonstrated remarkable efficacy in facilitating weight loss. These injections specifically target the appetite-regulating centers in the brain, resulting in decreased hunger and heightened sensations of fullness. This distinct mechanism enables individuals to reduce calorie intake and make healthier dietary choices, ultimately resulting in substantial weight loss.

What is Tirzepatide?

Similar to semaglutide, tirzepatide is an injectable prescription medicine that can improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes, but also offers weight loss benefits. Tirzepatide can reduce appetite, slow down the emptying of the stomach, and increase insulin release. Its effects on appetite regulation can lead to weight loss, making it a great option for those looking to shed pounds and manage their weight.

The Benefits

Semaglutide injections are revolutionizing weight loss, presenting a range of compelling advantages. Numerous clinical trials have demonstrated the medication’s effectiveness in promoting significant and sustained weight reduction. Studies have reported an average weight loss of around 15% or more in participants who received these injections compared to those who received a placebo.

A key benefit of these injections lie in their capacity to address various facets of weight loss. By suppressing appetite and amplifying sensations of fullness, individuals are inclined to reduce calorie intake and opt for healthier dietary options. This promotes better eating habits and a heightened sense of control over food cravings, rendering weight loss more attainable and enduring.

Weight Loss Injections + CoolSculpting®

In addition to these injections, we can also combine your treatments with CoolSculpting® body contouring for even more remarkable results. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure designed to target stubborn fat deposits in the body. The treatment involves the cooling targeted fat cells, which initiates a natural fat reduction process by making the cells no longer viable. CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to remove fat from the abdomen and the flanks.
