Semaglutide and Tirzepatide for Weight Loss in Los angeles

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are injectable prescription medications that are used successfully as an adjunct to a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity for chronic weight management in adults. Both are within a class of ground breaking medications known as GLP-1s (and GIPs also for tirzepatide) which regulate blood glucose levels, reduce hunger/cravings and slow stomach emptying, making you feel full faster and satiated longer. This sends a message to the brain that you are not hungry so you consume fewer calories and lose weight. Users report they do not experience the same sense of deprivation they do when they diet alone and they experience less “food noise” or intrusive thoughts about food. Users also lack the desire to overeat and possibly over-indulge in alcohol because fluid is also filling.

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide in los angeles - FAQ's

Common side effects may include nausea, constipation, vomiting, diarrhea, and decreased appetite. These side effects are often more common when increasing the dosage too quickly after starting the medication but tend to improve quickly with dosage adjustments.

The most common and effective form of semaglutide and tirzepatide available is a subcutaneous injection, and that is the current preferred method for treatment by RAS Medspa. You may visit us in person for us to administer your weekly injections but most patients typically self-administer the injection once a week after thorough instruction and training. Part of the RAS Medspa program is provider education on how to successfully self-administer the injections, however, accommodations can be made depending on patient preference and medical history.

The time-frame for seeing results can vary, but patients typically see weight loss in the first month of use, averaging 1-2 pounds loss per week, with significant results within four to six months when following all of our recommendatrions. Note, tirzepatide typically results in quicker and more extensive weight loss but is slightly more expensive.

While lifestyle changes are essential to long-term results, the goal is to use the medication, in combination with behavioral changes, like exercise and a healthy diet, to get to an ideal weight, and then get off the medication and continue the healthy lifestyle. Both injections are approved for long-term treatment of obesity, so they can be used as long as it’s beneficial for the patient.
