Semaglutide in Troy

Semaglutide in Troy

Semaglutide injections are the newest trend in non-surgical weight loss treatment. Known by trade names Ozempic and Wegovy, Semaglutide is a treatment for adults hoping to shed stubborn weight without surgical intervention. This popular treatment was initially designed for patients with diabetes but can benefit those struggling to lose weight naturally.

Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell is a board-certified plastic surgeon committed to being up-to-date on the latest cosmetic and medical treatments while prioritizing your safety and wellness. If you would like to learn more about using Semaglutide in Troy for weight loss, give our team a call today.

How Does Semaglutide Help With Weight Loss?

Semaglutide is a treatment primarily for overweight, obese, and diabetic patients that helps regulate appetite. The medication alleviates feelings of hunger and allows you to feel fuller faster, resulting in lower food intake overall. As such, Semaglutide can safely and effectively promote body weight loss.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Semaglutide Treatments?

Patients from Troy and beyond are typically good candidates for Semaglutide injections to help with weight loss. We recommend this treatment to patients if they have experienced challenges losing weight through traditional means.

As with any treatment, there are potential risks to using Semaglutide. Side effects may include dizziness, headaches, and stomach issues. For this reason, you should always speak with a medically trained professional to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for these injections.

How Do Semaglutide Injections Work?

Semaglutide treatments are an excellent treatment option for patients in Troy struggling to lose weight and who do not wish to pursue surgical intervention. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell teaches her patients to administer Semaglutide with a single-use injection needle at home. The treatment is relatively painless, only involving a quick pinching sensation once a week. You will begin to notice the effects of the medicine shortly after injection.

While we recommend most patients schedule Semaglutide treatments on a weekly basis, your individual treatment strategy may vary. Our clinic will continually monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.  You will start seeing results from your Semaglutide injections typically within one or two weeks.

FAQ Semaglutide Weight Loss Program

Can I use my health insurance?

Wegovy, the brand name medication indicated for weight loss, may be covered by insurance plans if certain risk factors are in place. Even still, the monthly cost may be up to $1400 per month out of pocket. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell offers the Semaglutide Weight Loss Program at a lower out of pocket cost of $600 per month. Insurance does not cover Dr. DeLuca-Pytell’s program.

What is different about the Semaglutide Weight Loss Program?

Using the generic form (Semaglutide) made in a compounding pharmacy, you can get the same active ingredient at a much lower cost. You will receive the medication once every four weeks, and Dr. DeLuca-Pytell will teach you how to perform the treatment using a single use syringe. These not the same as the Wegovy or Ozempic pens, but they are still easy to use.

Will I need to stay on Semaglutide forever?

At this time, maintenance injections are recommended to maintain results. This is done on an individual basis depending on each patient’s unique needs.
