Semaglutide (brand names: Ozempic®, Rybelus®, Wegovy®) is a FDA-approved once-weekly injection medication used for chronic weight management in individuals who are obese or overweight. This medication works by stimulating GLP-1 receptors in the body, which in turn decreases appetite and delays gastric emptying.
Elyzium Med Spa's weight loss program involves prescribing Semaglutide (the generic form of Ozempic®). As part of this program, you will meet with a medical professional who will provide personalized guidance and support to help you achieve your weight loss goals. The cost of Semaglutide is also included in the program, so you won't have to worry about additional prescription charges. Upon booking, a representative will reach out to you to arrange a free consultation with a provider to determine if you qualify for the program.
