Our Weight Loss Injections

WeGovy

Approved by the FDA, Wegovy offers a new approach to weight management that combines medical innovation with the body’s natural mechanisms. Below, we explore what Wegovy is, how it works, and what potential users might expect from this treatment.

What is WeGovy?

Wegovy is a brand name for semaglutide, a medication administered via injection and approved for chronic weight management in adults. It is specifically designed for individuals who have obesity (with a body mass index, BMI, of 30 or greater) or are overweight (BMI of 27 or greater) and also have at least one weight-related condition such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.

How Does WeGovy Work?

Wegovy operates through mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. By enhancing the actions of GLP-1, Wegovy can significantly reduce hunger, promote feelings of fullness, and thereby, decrease overall calorie intake.

The treatment involves a once-weekly injection under the skin (subcutaneous). It’s often started with a lower dose that is gradually increased over time to the maintenance dose. This gradual increase helps mitigate side effects and allows the body to adjust to the medication.

What Are The Benefits?

Clinical trials have shown that patients using Wegovy, in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, experience significant weight loss compared to those not on the medication. On average, individuals can expect a weight reduction of around 10% to 15% of their body weight, though outcomes can vary based on individual factors including diet, exercise, and adherence to the treatment regimen.

Saxenda

Saxenda (liraglutide) is an injectable medication that acts as an appetite suppressant, playing a significant role in weight management. Its application in the field of obesity has shown promising results. It mimics a hormone that regulates appetite, leading to a reduced calorie intake and, subsequently, weight loss.

What is Saxenda?

Saxenda is an injectable prescription medication that may help some adults with excess weight or obesity, alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, to lose weight and keep it off. It is not a weight-loss drug for everyone and is specifically designed for those who are overweight or obese. Saxenda’s active ingredient, liraglutide, is similar to a naturally occurring hormone GLP-1, which is involved in regulating appetite and food intake.

How Does Saxenda Work?

Saxenda works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1, a hormone made in your intestines that signals to your brain that you are full. By acting on receptors in the brain, Saxenda slows gastric emptying and causes a feeling of satiety. This reduces hunger and helps control your eating with smaller portions, leading to weight loss over time.

What Are The Benefits?
  1. Effective Weight Management: Clinical trials have shown that Saxenda, combined with a low-calorie diet and increased physical activity, can lead to significant weight loss.
  1. Improved Health Markers: Besides weight loss, Saxenda users have reported improvements in various health parameters, including blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and glycemic control.
  2. Long-term Sustainability: Unlike some weight-loss methods that only offer temporary results, Saxenda provides a sustainable solution when used alongside lifestyle changes.

Ozempic

Ozempic’s ability to aid in significant weight loss has garnered attention from both the medical community and individuals striving for a healthier weight. It belongs to a class of drugs known as GLP-1 receptor agonists that work by mimicking the action of the glucagon-like peptide-1 hormone in the body, which is involved in blood sugar regulation.

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic, scientifically known as semaglutide, is a medication approved by the FDA primarily to treat Type 2 diabetes. It’s administered through weekly injections and works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake.

How Does Ozempic Work?

The mechanism of Ozempic’s action plays a significant role in its effectiveness for weight loss:

  1. Appetite Suppression: By mimicking GLP-1, Ozempic slows gastric emptying, the process by which food leaves your stomach. This action can make you feel fuller for longer periods, reducing overall calorie intake.
  2. Blood Sugar Regulation: For those with Type 2 diabetes, Ozempic helps stabilize blood sugar levels, which can reduce cravings and abrupt hunger pangs associated with blood sugar spikes.
  3. Impact on Brain Regulation: Ozempic acts on brain centers that regulate appetite, thereby decreasing hunger.
What Are The Benefits?

While your healthcare provider can offer the most personalized advice, here are some general benefits associated with Ozempic injections:

1. Improved Blood Sugar Control

Ozempic helps lower blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes, thereby aiding in the management of the condition. It does this by stimulating insulin release when blood sugar levels are high, slowing down sugar production in the liver, and delaying gastric emptying to prevent blood sugar spikes after meals.

2. Weight Loss

Many users of Ozempic report weight loss as a significant benefit. Though not a weight-loss medication, the way Ozempic works can lead to reduced appetite and calorie intake, which may result in weight loss. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with type 2 diabetes who are also looking to manage their weight.

3. Reduced Risk of Major Cardiovascular Events

For some people with type 2 diabetes and heart disease, Ozempic has been shown to lower the risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, or death from a cardiovascular cause. This makes it a valuable option for individuals looking for a diabetes treatment that also supports heart health.

4. Convenient Dosage Schedule

Ozempic is administered once weekly, which may be more convenient than medications requiring daily dosing. This once-weekly schedule can make it easier for some people to stick to their treatment plan.

5. May Improve Other Health Markers

In addition to its primary benefits, Ozempic may also contribute to improvements in other health markers, such as cholesterol levels and blood pressure, when used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes diet and exercise.

TESTIMONIALS

Faye Moodie

I recently visited Steph ness aesthetics for a facial peel I have to say it was a fantastic experience. Having never had a facial like this before, Stephanie explained everything brilliantly I felt comfortable and confident in her skills. I also had a couple of calcium spots on my cheek, these had always had them and never been able to get rid of them. Steph was able to remove them with a quick painless way to say I am pleased with the outcome of both treatments I’ve had is an understatement and would highly recommend Stephanie.

Mel Tang

As a busy mom of two that rarely has time for herself I thought it was about time I treated myself. I very rarely leave the house without makeup so I was very sceptical that anything was going to change that. After finding Steph on Facebook and seeing lots of lovely treatments and reviews I took the plunge to book a consultation. First impressions – what a beautiful little salon, Steph is so lovely and took the time to explain treatments and give her professional recommendations on what treatment to choose. I’m not quite ready for anything too invasive so chose to go with the Obagi face peel. Steph talked me through the whole process and explained the aftercare and results we would likely achieve. Fast forward 2 weeks and my skin is glowing. I’ve felt confident for the first time in forever walking out of the house without anything but moisturiser and some mascara on. During my follow up appointment today Steph made me feel amazing. I would 100% recommend Steph and if you’re feeling a bit apprehensive, book a consultation. You have nothing to lose. Steph is amazing at what she does. Thank you

Fabulous experience from start to finish. Steph’s professionalism is second to none, Steph took time to fully analyse my face and advise what would be the best treatment plan. The whole process made me feel very safe and secure and I won’t go anywhere else now.

Rachel Lunt

I’ve recently been in to see Steph in her clinic to have a facial peel. My skin has never looked better, Steph was so professional able to explain in detail the process and all the products that she used on my skin and what aftercare should be used. I found Steph really refreshing as she was not trying to sell me anything and was looking and what treatment was best for me. I would recommend her 100% and I’ll definitely be going back for more treatments.

Jodie Price

Steph really put me at ease when I visited for the first time today. Listened to what I wanted and advised what would work best. love my results already (lips and cheeks) even though understandably swollen. Really impressed all 3 ladies were lovely and made me feel very welcome. The salon was beautiful and spotlessly clean, I will 100% be returning.

Thank you Steph. xxxx
