Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Semaglutide Treatment?

You may only have heard of Semaglutide injections recently but it isn’t a new medication. Originally used to treat type 2 diabetes, it has now been found to have significant weight loss benefits.

Semaglutide is part of the GLP-1 RAs or glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists that mirror how the GLP-1 hormone works. One of the primary functions of GLP-1 is it signals when it’s time for the body to make more insulin. This minimizes the glucose or blood sugar in the body. Higher amounts of GLP-1 can also alter the part of the brain that’s associated with appetite. So with its ability to decrease appetite and increase feelings of fullness, it has become a good option for those looking to shed pounds and improve their overall well-being.

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide, when used for weight loss, alters specific parts of your brain. It tells you that you are full and suppresses your desire to eat. When paired with a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, it can become an effective weight loss plan for those who are obese, overweight, and those who want to maintain a specific weight.

At Contour Clinique, our program starts off with a dietary consultation, where we get to know you and your weight loss goals. We then follow it up with a medication consultation, to carefully review your medical history and determine if Semaglutide is the right fit for you. 

How much weight can I lose with Semaglutide?

According to research, a weekly dose can help you lose about 16% of your body weight—During one particular study, participants whose starting weight was approximately 231 pounds, lost an average of 37 pounds after 68 weeks of continuous use.

When starting the process, you can expect to lose the most weight during the initial 32 weeks. This is when your body adjusts and accepts the medication. This is also the time when most lifestyle and eating changes happen.

Semaglutide is a long-acting treatment. It is usually administered in lower doses to minimize the side effects while slowly increasing the body’s tolerance until an individual reaches the maintenance dose. If you’re considering taking it, you should understand that it takes at least five to six weeks to reach a steady state where you don’t experience any side effects.

Who is an ideal candidate for Semaglutide?

The Food and Drug Administration has specific requirements for those undergoing semaglutide treatments. You have to meet one of these two conditions:

  • You should have a body mass index of at least 30kg/m2.
  • You should have at least one weight-associated medical condition like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.

Semaglutide as a standalone option may not lead to the desired outcome of weight reduction. It is designed to complement and enhance the effects of a healthy lifestyle, including regular physical activity and a balanced low-calorie diet.

What if I miss a dose of Semaglutide?

With our busy schedules, it’s easy to forget and miss a semaglutide injection. If you do, should you take the missed dose as soon as you remember or just wait until it’s time for the next one?

It’s important to understand that taking extra or larger doses close together is unsafe, even if you’re trying to compensate for your missed dose. Here’s what to do if you forget to administer a shot:

 

  • If you miss your scheduled shot but the next scheduled dose is two or more days away, go ahead and inject yourself with the missed dose as soon as you can.
  • If you miss your scheduled shot but your next dose is less than two days away, don’t take an extra shot. Wait for your next dose as scheduled.
  • If you missed your shot for over two weeks, contact our clinic and let us know so we can advise you how to effectively and safely restart your semaglutide treatment.

How much does a Semaglutide treatment cost?

Our program consists of monthly visits to meet your weight loss goals. The initial month is $350, with subsequent months at $450. Please see our Treatments page for the most up-to-date cost for semaglutide treatments.
