What are weight loss injections?

Weight loss injections are a form of medical treatment designed to aid in weight reduction. These injections typically contain specific medications or substances that assist in curbing appetite, boosting metabolism, or promoting fat burning. They are administered directly into the muscle, allowing for efficient absorption into the bloodstream. These injections work best when combined with a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

Medical Weight Loss New Jersey

Sometimes we need a boost to get to where we want to be, and these treatments are designed to accomplish just that. We offer a wide array of weight loss injections in New Jersey that are designed to help our patients reach their goals.

Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a medication that has gained attention for its potential to aid weight loss. Originally intended for use as a type 2 diabetes treatment, semaglutide belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists. These drugs are effective at increasing feelings of fullness and reducing appetite, leading to decreased food intake and subsequent weight loss. Recent studies have shown promising results, demonstrating significant weight reduction in individuals who took semaglutide as part of a weight management program. As further research continues, semaglutide has the potential to offer a new approach to combating obesity and improving overall health.

Some of the name brands of Semaglutide that we offer include Wegovy and Ozempic. These treatments all take a similar approach to medical weight loss by allowing patients to feel full faster and get through the day without hunger pangs.

Saxenda

Saxenda, also known as liraglutide, is an FDA-approved medication used for weight management. It belongs to the class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists. Saxenda works by mimicking the effects of naturally-occurring body hormones that regulate appetite and food intake. By activating receptors in the brain, it promotes feelings of fullness and reduces hunger, leading to reduced calorie intake and subsequent weight loss. Saxenda is typically prescribed as part of a comprehensive weight loss program that includes diet, exercise, and behavioral modifications. It has been found to be effective in facilitating weight loss and can help individuals who are struggling with obesity.

Mounjaro

Tirzepatide, marketed as Mounjaro, is an investigational medication that has demonstrated value as a weight loss protocol. As a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, it mimics the actions of the GLP-1 hormone in the body. GLP-1 plays a role in regulating blood sugar levels and reducing appetite.

Clinical trials have shown promising results for tirzepatide in promoting weight loss. In a 16-week study, participants who received tirzepatide experienced an average weight reduction of 15%. Furthermore, the medication has demonstrated a favorable safety profile and has been well-tolerated by patients in these trials. However, it is important to note that tirzepatide is still undergoing research and has not yet received regulatory approval for the treatment of obesity.

Are weight loss injections safe?

Weight loss injections can be safe when administered under the supervision of a certified healthcare practitioner. They will consider factors such as any existing medical conditions, allergies, and potential drug interactions. By following proper medical supervision and guidelines, weight loss injections can be a safe and effective tool to support your weight loss journey.
