Weight Loss

Are you struggling to shed those stubborn pounds despite trying numerous diets and exercise routines? Have traditional weight loss methods left you frustrated and stagnant in your journey? Bellava Aesthetics in Crestview Hills, KY, might have the answer for you. We specialize in advanced solutions using GLP-1 medications such as Semaglutide and Tirzepatide. These innovative medications work by mimicking the body’s natural glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone known to increase insulin secretion and slow gastric emptying. The outcome? Reduced appetite and a boost in weight loss efforts. This approach is particularly beneficial for those who haven’t found success with standard weight loss strategies. 

While these medications are primarily geared toward reducing overall body fat, it maintains a balanced and holistic approach to ensure sustainable results. Within weeks, many of our patients begin to see a noticeable difference. For results that last, consistency with the medication and a health-conscious lifestyle are key. If you’re in search of a scientifically-backed weight loss solution, Bellava Aesthetics invites you to take the next step. Book an appointment today and let us guide you towards your desired weight goals.

What is Semaglutide, and how does it work for weight loss?

Semaglutide is a mimic of the natural hormone GLP-1 and belongs to the glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) class. The body’s intestines release GLP-1 in response to food consumption, aiding in managing blood sugar levels by promoting insulin release and diminishing glucagon secretion. Administered via injection, Semaglutide serves as a pharmaceutical option for patients.

What is Tirzepatide, and how does it work for weight loss?

Tirzepatide stands out as another GLP-1 RA, showcasing a unique dual mechanism of action. In addition to its impact on the glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptor, which is another player in blood sugar regulation post-meals, Tirzepatide offers a combined approach. By addressing both the GLP-1 and GIP receptors, this medication, unlike others, aims to deliver a more potent and effective control over blood sugar levels.

What is the difference between Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?

These medications share similarities for identical conditions. Tirzepatide, a recent innovation, excels in weight loss efficacy. However, it’s pricier. For cost-effectiveness, Semaglutide is advised initially. If weight goals aren’t met with Semaglutide, switching to Tirzepatide is a viable option.

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication that is primarily used for weight management and is particularly effective for individuals struggling with appetite control. It is most suitable for those with a BMI greater than 30, indicating obesity, or those with a BMI over 27 who are overweight.

Individuals with certain medical conditions, such as medullary thyroid cancer or specific endocrine disorders like MEN 2, should avoid using Semaglutide. Additionally, it is not advised for people with type I diabetes to take this medication.

The duration of a Semaglutide regimen can differ from person to person, depending on the amount of weight loss desired. There is no one-size-fits-all answer, as treatment length can vary.

Most people on Semaglutide report minimal issues with hunger, as the medication helps in appetite regulation. While there are no strict dietary limitations when taking Semaglutide, it’s advisable to maintain a balanced diet rich in nutrients and to stay hydrated with ample water intake.
