Medical Weight Loss

What we do 

Looking and feeling your best is key to overall wellness which is why Rejuvenate Spa is so passionate about medical weight loss. With the American Medical Association linking obesity to serious physical illness, immobility and increased risk of early death as well as mental wellness issues such as depression, reaching a healthy weight is less about how you look and a great deal more about longevity, vitality and happiness.

With this in mind, the Rejuvenate Spa team has a robust medically supported weight loss program using a recently approved medication which has shown dramatic effects on weight loss.

How does

Rejuvenate Spa Medical Weight Loss Work?

Rejuvenate Spa uses the highly effective FDA approved medication, Semaglutide. This medication is given by subcutaneous injection (just under the skin).

Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake, thereby decreasing appetite significantly.

The dosage of medication will be slowly increased over time to allow your body to adjust to the medication to decrease the likelihood of side effects and to allow for optimal weight loss. Average weight loss is 2-4 pounds per week.

FAQ's

Do the weight loss injections hurt?

A very small and short needle is used to deliver the medication into the subcutaneous tissue just under the skin so the pain is very minimal. Some say they do not feel the shot at all.

Will I gain the weight back when I stop the shots?

The medication only works while it is in your body. Once it is gone, as with any weight loss program, if you go back to your former way of eating, you will gain back the weight. If you continue to manage your calories and increase your physical exercise, you could continue to lose weight.

What are some "obesity-related" medical conditions?

There are a range of medical conditions associated with obesity. Some of these include:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • High triglycerides
  • PCOS
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Gall bladder disease
  • Gout
  • Diabetes
  • Depression

Do I still need to diet and exercise if I take the weight loss shots?

For the best results we recommend diet and increase your physical activity. The weight loss shots help you to do this more effectively.

Does insurance cover the shots?

We only accept cash, checks, debit cards and some HSA cards but check with your health insurance. If you have weight loss coverage, you may have coverage for semaglutide (Wegovy or Ozempic). If you do, check with your health care provider and see if they will prescribe it for you. The next hurdle is to see if you can find it in stock at a pharmacy. If the answer to any of these is no, come and see us.

What are some side effects I might experience from the weight loss shots?

The medication is usually well tolerated with minimal side effects. Semaglutide slows stomach emptying so some people may have acid reflux or nausea with the weight loss injection. This can usually be treated with an acid reducer. Constipation or diarrhea occasionally occurs as well which can be treated with over the counter medications as well..

Is there anyone who shouldn't take the weight loss shots?

If you or your family have a history of medullary thyroid cancer or endocrine neoplasia syndrome type II or if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients, you should not take the weight loss injections. Rejuvenate MedSpa does not manage diabetes. Since this medication is also used to manage diabetes under the =trade name of Ozempic, we are not currently accepting patients with diabetes.

Do I have to be a certain weight to qualify for this medication?

You must fall into the category of “overweight” on the BMI scale which is 25 or greater. You can check your BMI by going to https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmicalc.htm
