Losing weight whether for health or personal reasons—is not always as easy as dieting and exercising. Many will strictly follow their plans and still not lose weight or not see a noticeable difference. This can be disheartening which may worsen or cause plateaus and setbacks. No weight loss journey is completely perfect. However, the new FDA-approved medication for weight loss, semaglutide, gives patients an option that helps naturally induce weight loss. Thus, reducing and minimizing the plateaus and setbacks. Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the best semaglutide Seattle offers as part of their non-surgical weight loss program.

The Science Behind Semaglutide B12 Injections

Semaglutide is a type of medication known as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). It mimics the hormone of the same name which helps regulate the metabolism, hunger cues, and digestion. This naturally helps patients want to eat less and feel fuller longer. The addition of Vitamin B12 may help you burn more fat. Vitamin B12 has routinely been included in weight loss medications and supplements.

Beyond this, Vitamin B12 can also help ease the possible side effects of semaglutide injections. While patients often see side effects such as nausea, fatigue, and an upset stomach improve and go away after about two to three doses, Vitamin B12 can help counteract these side effects. Therefore, semaglutide with B12 is generally better tolerated than semaglutide without Vitamin B12

Compound Semaglutide Dosing Plan

Compound Semaglutide Dosing Plan

Compounded vs. Non-Compounded Semaglutide

The providers at Allure Esthetic provide compounded semaglutide with B12. Compounded semaglutide refers to semaglutide which comes from a compounding pharmacy. At these specialized pharmacies, medications are custom-made. Commonly, compounding pharmacies will create versions of medications without an ingredient a patient is allergic to; or, as is the case with semaglutide with B12, add a complementary ingredient.

Compounding pharmacies are safe and use the same active ingredient as the brand name semaglutide. Few differences exist between the two products and patients see results on both. Compounded semaglutide with B12 also allows patients to have the medication mailed directly to them.

Benefits & Risks

Like other chronic weight management options, there are benefits and risks to taking semaglutide for weight loss. Your provider will review this information and how it may or may not directly apply to you. However, it is still important to understand the possible benefits and risks.

Benefits and advantages of semaglutide B12 injections for weight loss may include:

  • Helps significantly reduce body weight
  • Feel full longer
  • Supports a healthy metabolism
  • Slows gastric emptying
  • Prevents overeating and cravings
  • B12 reduces uncomfortable side effects
  • Encourages patients to eat better
  • Prevents weight plateaus and setbacks
  • FDA-approved for chronic weight management
  • Allows patients time to gradually develop better eating and exercise habits
  • Safe to use for long periods of time
  • Shipped to the patient following consultation
  • Monitored by a medical professional at Allure Esthetic
  • Medical professionals on call 24/7 to answer questions and serve patient needs
  • Check-in appointment every month to track progress and make changes to treatment plan as necessary

Medications of any kind come with risks. With semaglutide, patients may experience some mild side effects, but major complications are rare. The risks of semaglutide with B12 injections may include:

  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Pancreatitis
  • Allergic reaction
  • Acute kidney injury
  • Gallbladder issues

The above-mentioned complications are exceptionally rare. They are generally avoidable with a thorough consultation and correct use of the medication. Do not administer more than your recommended dose. If you take another GLP-1 medication, tell your provider because semaglutide cannot be used with other medications in the same class.

How To Perform Semaglutide Injections For Weight Loss

Patients usually administer their semaglutide injections at home. Once a week, patients will deliver the medication just beneath the skin. Most patients experience little to no pain during the process. Patients should inject into either the thigh, stomach, or upper arm. With each weekly dose, patients should rotate the injection area. This helps reduce skin problems and is more comfortable long term.

If you come in for an in-person consultation, your provider can administer the first dose during the appointment. This will also allow them to demonstrate while actually delivering the medication. For virtual consultations, your provider will give you a demonstration on where and how to inject adequately.

Frequently
Asked Questions

1. Why Do I Still Need To Diet & Exercise?

Allure Esthetic’s semaglutide weight loss program also includes advice on changing your habits, primarily diet and exercise. Patients should try to follow a healthier diet as this will also help prevent side effects from the semaglutide. Eating high amounts of simple sugars and processed foods, for example, can cause more stomach pain than eating healthier alternatives would. This does not mean a patient needs to turn around their diet quickly, instead, semaglutide gives patients the opportunity to build better habits while actively doing something to lose weight.

Exercise is important because it helps improve the metabolism. By building muscle, the body requires more energy to function. Thus, the metabolism speeds up and patients see better results. It can also help tone up the look of the body.

2. Does Vitamin B12 Help With Weight Loss?

Vitamin B12 does not directly cause weight loss. However, it has long been linked to weight loss because it is important for breaking down fat. Adequate amounts of Vitamin B12 give your body more energy to break down more fat as energy. Vitamin B12 by itself will not stimulate weight loss.

3. Does Brand Name Wegovy Or Ozempic Contain Vitamin B12?

No, Ozempic or Wegovy—the brand names of semaglutide—do not contain Vitamin B12. This is why going through a compounding pharmacy allows Allure Esthetic to add Vitamin B12 (for an additional cost) to make the medication more tolerable. The main and active ingredients—namely semaglutide—are the same and just as effective in the compounded version of the medication.

4. What Should I Do If I Miss A Dose Of Semaglutide?

If you miss a dose of semaglutide, determine when you would be due for the next dose. If it is more than two days away, administer the missed dose and continue on your normal schedule. However, if the next dose is less than two days away, skip the missed dose and continue on your normal schedule. These directions may vary between patients based on their individual care plans.

5. How Much Is Semaglutide With B12 For Weight Loss In Seattle?

Allure Esthetic offers their semaglutide weight loss plan for a flat monthly cost. B12 injections are available at an additional cost. The prices are as follows:

  • Injection: $575 per month (includes medication, necessary supplies, diet plan, exercise plan, and monthly check-in appointment)
