Semaglutide Weight Loss Treatments

CaloSpa® is pleased to offer a medical weight loss treatment, Semaglutide, at our Louisville and Lexington, KY, and Floyds Knobs, IN, locations, one of the most promising weight loss programs available today. The program and its products are available only through approved healthcare professionals like us. CaloSpa® consultants have been specially trained to bring this exclusive weight loss and nutrition system to our patients.

What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a modified version of a naturally occurring peptide in our bodies that helps stimulate the body’s insulin production and lowers glucagon production, resulting in lowered blood sugar and slower digestion. It has been approved by the FDA to be used as a weight-loss aid when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.

Semaglutide prescriptions were originally identified to treat diabetes by controlling blood sugar. They have since been shown to be an effective weight loss tool for people of all ages.

How Does Semaglutide Work to Help You Lose Weight?

Semaglutide helps you lose weight by stimulating insulin production in the pancreas after eating, which triggers the stomach to empty more slowly. This in turn sends a signal to the brain telling your stomach it’s full. This helps decrease your appetite and control blood sugar levels to help you lose weight. By decreasing your appetite, Semaglutide helps you adhere to a lower calorie diet so that you eat more healthfully and exercise more to increase your weight loss efforts.

Patient Labs

Any patient wanting to proceed with Semaglutide must have their blood drawn to ensure that Semaglutide is the appropriate treatment for your specific condition. Upon completion, Dr. Bradley Calobrace will evaluate your medical history and lab test results. He will consider factors such as your current health status, other medications you may be taking, and any underlying medical conditions that could affect the use of Semaglutide before approving treatment.

Your Consultation

A consultation with a healthcare professional is necessary before starting Semaglutide and CaloSpa® has partnered with Mind Body Physio to assist you along your weight loss journey. During your consultation, you will meet with Kaitlyn Brown, an Integrative Health Practitioner, Certified Functional Health Coach, and Fitness Nutrition Specialist.

Kaitlyn will discuss product education, treatment dosage, and safety considerations. She will also create a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs, response to the medication, and other relevant factors. Regular follow-up appointments allow Kaitlyn to monitor your progress, assess the effectiveness of Semaglutide, and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan. She can address any concerns or questions you may have, provide ongoing support, and help optimize your treatment outcomes.

How Do You Take Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication that can be self-administered by the patient. Self-administering Semaglutide allows our patients to take their medication at home without the need for frequent visits to a healthcare facility.

Once treatment is approved by Dr. Calobrace, the patient’s prescription is shipped to their home with all the dosing instructions and products needed to proceed with treatment. The package will be equipped with a 3-month supply of Semaglutide, fine needles for subcutaneous injections, and cleansing pads. It’s important to follow the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer to ensure the medication is administered safely and effectively.

Self-administering Semaglutide offers patients the flexibility to take their medication according to their prescribed schedule, without the need for healthcare professional assistance for every dose. However, it is still crucial to maintain regular communication with the healthcare provider to monitor progress, address any concerns, and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.

It is also important to ensure you are careful about what you eat; we recommend avoiding fatty foods and foods high in sugar, which can be harder for your body to digest and can increase the risk of side effects.

On average, our patients have lost 5 – 12 pounds per month, resulting in a loss of 30+ pounds in 90 days!

What If I Miss a Dose?

If you miss a dose and the next scheduled dose is more than 2 days away, take the missed dose as soon as possible. If you miss a dose and the next scheduled dose is less than 2 days away, do not take the missed dose. Take the next dose at your regular time. Do not take double or extra doses. If you miss your dose for 2 weeks or more, take the next dose at your regular time.

What Are the Side Effects?

The most commonly reported side effect is weight loss. However, some have reported nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, or constipation. The rarest risks of serious effects increase in patients with hypoglycemia, kidney problems, and risk of allergic reactions. This medication is ideal for those who are in good health with no kidney or liver issues who wish to lose weight.

Where Do I Store My Medication?

Refrigeration (preferred): Store in the refrigerator. Do not freeze. Keep this medication in the original container until you are ready to take it. Get rid of any unused medication after the expiration date.

Semaglutide and Surgery?

We do have patients stop Semaglutide 2 weeks prior to surgery and they must have a clear liquid diet for 24 hours prior to surgery. This is due to the gastric emptying and anesthesia.

Combining Semaglutide Weight Loss Treatments with Other Procedures

For patients who want to do even more to lose weight and transform their bodies, we recommend combining Semaglutide treatments with a series of AccuFit™, EmSculpt®, or CoolSculpting® Elite treatments to enhance your fat loss and build lean muscle to help reshape your body as you lose weight.
