Enjoy significant and effective weight loss with Semaglutide and Tirzpatide medications  

According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, approximately one-third of adults are considered overweight, with up to 42% diagnosed as obese. With these numbers increasing each year, it has become a major concern for Americans. To turn these numbers around, weight loss programs have been rising in popularity, allowing people to improve health and wellness and reduce their risk of developing certain medical conditions such as diabetes and increased chances of strokes and heart attacks. 

At United Medical and Aesthetics of Wilmington, North Carolina, our team may suggest the benefits of injectable weight loss medications. Many of these medications have been recently proven safe and effective in boosting weight loss results alongside lifestyle changes, including increased exercise and improved diet. Injectables such as Semaglutide and Tirzpatide have been rising in popularity due to the reliable results many men and women have achieved with them. At United Medical and Aesthetics we offer “compounded” Semaglutide and Tirzpatide.

How do Semaglutide and Tirzpatide injections work?

While these medications are known for their effectiveness in improving glycemic control, they have also been proven safe for weight loss. Both of these brands are readily available for our patients and have proven to boost weight loss in obese patients and those with high body mass indexes or BMIs. These weight loss drugs, including other well-known products such as Mounjaro and Wegovy, have drastically changed the way patients combat extra pounds.

Tirzpatide’s active ingredient reduces hunger signals and suppresses appetite. It makes patients feel fuller when they eat by changing the speed at which the stomach empties. When paired with improved nutrition, diet, and increased exercise, patients will see dramatic results sooner when reaching their weight loss goals.

How are these medications administered?

Semaglutide and Tirzpatide are administered via injection right at United Medical and Aesthetics in Wilmington, North Carolina, by our experienced team. Patients come in monthly for the injections and will need to have them performed regularly until they achieve their weight loss goals. The hope is that as a patient reaches their goal weights, they will have developed lifestyle changes that allow them to maintain their results over time, resulting in sustained weight balance.
