Achieving weight loss and a leaner physique is no easy feat, especially when hunger becomes a significant challenge. Fortunately, treatments like Semaglutide (Ozempic and Wegovy) and Tirzepatide (Mounjaro) are available, curbing appetite and supporting weight loss. Coupled with a healthy diet and exercise, these treatments can achieve remarkable fat reduction, boosting self-esteem.
As part of our comprehensive weight loss protocol, Dr. Murrell provides weight loss injections to patients. These injections promote a feeling of fullness, reducing overeating tendencies and preventing excessive hunger throughout the day.
How do weight loss injections work?
Medical weight loss in Beverly Hills works by mimicking GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), a hormone responsible for managing appetite. These treatments optimize the peptide hormone, making patients feel satisfied with smaller food portions. They also stimulate the pancreas to release insulin when blood sugar levels rise and slow down the stomach's food passage, leading to reduced appetite—a process called gastric emptying.
What are the benefits of Semaglutide?
Various trial studies have found weight loss injections to be one of the most beneficial treatments for medical weight loss in Los Angeles.
Other benefits of Semaglutide include:
- Non-addictive treatment
- Minimal side effects in most patients
- Decreased appetite and food cravings
- Faster feelings of fullness
- Non-stimulant treatment
- Well-tolerated by most patients
- Proven safety and effectiveness
- Prolonged feelings of fullness
- Enhanced weight loss results
- Smoother, slower digestion
- Reduction in BMI
What does the treatment entail?
Weight loss injections are administered on a weekly basis and may have their dosage increased gradually if necessary. These painless injections are commonly administered in areas such as the abdomen, upper arm, or thighs.
Potential side effects of Semaglutide and Tirzepatide
While the majority of weight loss treatment recipients do not experience complications, there is always a chance of side effects. These may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dyspepsia, and constipation, but typically subside within a few weeks. In the private consultation, patients will receive detailed information on managing these potential symptoms, should they occur.
