WHAT IS SEMAGLUTIDE?

Semaglutide is an FDA approved drug treatment used at XSculpt for chronic weight management. When injected, Semaglutide mimicks a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1. Semaglutide targets areas of the brain to decrease appetite and food intake resulting in weight loss for those who are overweight or struggling with obesity.

WHAT IS SEMAGLUTIDE USED FOR?

Semaglutide can be used for a variety of conditions. It is intended for adults with obesity or who are overweight with at least one weight-related condition (ie. type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol). Semaglutide is used for weight loss and following your injections, cardiovascular health and pancreatic health are improved to maintain a healthy lifestyle with these chronic health conditions. The top benefits of semaglutide injections are:
