Our Guide to Tirzepatide and Semaglutide

At Nuview Medspa, we specialize in helping our clients lose weight utilizing a healthy and balanced approach with the use of Semaglutide and Tirzepatide. These medications have gained attention for their effectiveness in aiding weight loss efforts. Below, we address common questions about these injections and how they can help you achieve your weight loss goals.

What are tirzepatide and semaglutide?

Tirzepatide and Semaglutide are both injectable medications approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of obesity. They belong to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists, which work by mimicking the effects of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). These hormones regulate appetite, food intake, and body weight.

What are the differences between tirzepatide and semaglutide?

While both medications are GLP-1 receptor agonists, they have some differences in their chemical structure and dosing regimen. Tirzepatide is a dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and GLP-1 receptor agonist, which means it acts on two different hormones involved in glucose metabolism and appetite regulation. Semaglutide, on the other hand, is a GLP-1 receptor agonist alone. Additionally, the dosing frequency may differ between the two medications.

How can tirzepatide and semaglutide help with weight loss?

Both tirzepatide and semaglutide have been shown in clinical trials to significantly reduce body weight when combined with lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise. They work by reducing appetite, increasing feelings of fullness, and slowing gastric emptying, which ultimately leads to a decrease in calorie intake and weight loss.

Are tirzepatide and semaglutide safe for weight loss?

These medications have been evaluated in clinical trials and have been found to be generally safe and well-tolerated when used as prescribed. However, like any medication, they may have side effects. Common side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits with your healthcare provider before starting treatment.

Who is a good candidate for tirzepatide or semaglutide injections?

These medications may be suitable for adults who are overweight or obese and have struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. Your healthcare provider can help determine if tirzepatide or semaglutide is right for you based on your individual health status and weight loss goals.

How long do I need to take tirzepatide or semaglutide injections?

The duration of treatment with tirzepatide or semaglutide may vary depending on your individual response and weight loss goals. Your healthcare provider will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.

Which services can I benefit from by combining with tirzepatide or semaglutide?

In addition to your weekly weight loss medication, we offer various technologies to remodel the collagen in the skin that can tighten, tone, melt fat and transform the skin to assist in the side effects of weight loss. Collagen and elastin are two essential proteins that give your skin its elasticity or ability to retract and adapt to weight loss. To counteract any skin laxity while using these medications, we offer treatments on our EvolveX, Evoke and Exilis machines. These treatments utilize radiofrequency to trigger skin cells to tighten as collagen and elastin production is stimulated. Evolve Tone can also help by using EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) to generate rapid, involuntary muscle contractions that strengthen, build, and define muscle. Treatment can be performed on the buttocks, abdomen, arms, and thighs. We recommend these treatments as a proactive measure to help defend against loose sagging skin that can be performed safely while on these weight loss medications. In addition to remodeling the skin, we offer Lipo-Mino-Mix+C, an injectable weight loss booster and Peptidevite supplements to mitigate any potential GI side effects. Bundling these services for a price incentive is available.
