Read on to learn more about Semaglutide injections, how they work, and the many benefits of Artemedica’s Skinny Shot weight loss program! 

How the Skinny Shot Works 

Diabetics experienced help with weight loss using the insulin production regulator Ozempic® (semaglutide). Due to its effectiveness as an aid in weight loss, in June 2022, the FDA approved the use Semaglutide as a prescription injection for adults who are overweight or obese and also have weight-related medical problems. This is the first time, since 2014, that the FDA has approved a weight loss drug for overweight or obese adults.   

The Skinny Shot semaglutide injection works just like your body’s own hormone, glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1), which targets appetite centers in the brain and helps you feel fuller faster and for longer. Semaglutide works in the following ways:  

  • Slow digestion in the stomach 
  • Slow intestinal motility 
  • Lower blood sugars 
  • Stimulate insulin secretion 

Benefits of the Skinny Shot 

Skinn Shot semaglutide injections delay how quickly the stomach digests food. This leads to a feeling of fullness and satisfaction with smaller meal sizes that last for longer periods of time. The Skinny Shot also increases your body’s production of insulin which naturally lowers your blood sugar. 

Skinny Shot semaglutide injection benefits include:  

  • Satisfied with smaller amounts at mealtimes 
  • Feeling full longer 
  • Fewer cravings between meals 
  • Which leads to the ultimate benefit: sustained weight loss
