Semaglutide Weight Loss Program

What is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compounded Semaglutide is a patient-specific medication created in a state Board of Pharmacy or FDA-licensed compounding facility per a prescription from a licensed healthcare professional. Compounded drugs are required to exclusively use ingredients from FDA-licensed facilities, and test sterile compounds for potency, sterility, and purity.

While compounded drugs are legal they do not undergo pre-market approval from the FDA as they are not made in large batches for the public, compounds are made based on specific orders from a medical professional. Because of that the dose, route of administration, and efficacy may differ from commercially available, brand-name, drugs.
Revitalize Dermatology & Aesthetics exclusively works with licensed sterile compounding pharmacies in the United States.

Do You Qualify for Semaglutide injections?

We understand that weight gain isn’t a matter of willpower or laziness. Your body’s own hormones are likely combating your efforts to lose weight and we can help you. Our program is made up of weekly semaglutide injections, check-ins with a dedicated nurse practitioner, and weight loss coaching resources.

Semaglutide is a revolutionary GLP-1 receptor agonist that was originally developed for patients with Type 2 diabetes, but when providers and pharmaceutical developers noticed how much weight their patients were losing, they began to study semaglutide exclusively for weight loss. A series of clinical trials known as the STEP clinical trials demonstrated that almost 90% of patients lost 5% or more of their body weight. In june of 2022, the FDA approved semaglutide for weight loss. Semaglutide increases insulin production, decreases glucagon synthesis, delays gastric emptying and suppresses hunger. It signals your brain that you are full so you can lose weight without feeling like you are depriving yourself.
