Medical Weight Loss with Semaglutide and Tirzepatide at Bonakdar Aesthetics

At Bonakdar Aesthetics in Newport Beach, CA, Dr. Monica Bonakdar, a trusted leader in weight management, offers Semaglutide and Tirzepatide injections to help you achieve your goals. These innovative medications can curb cravings, promote satiety, and support sustainable weight control.

What is Semaglutide?

Our bodies are complex ecosystems, and our gut plays a significant role in weight management. Semaglutide is a class of prescription drugs that mimics a natural hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which lives up to its name by acting like a messenger in your digestive system. When GLP-1 levels are low, we might feel hungrier and struggle to feel satisfied after meals.

Semaglutide steps in, increasing GLP-1 activity and sending signals to your brain that you're full. This can lead to reduced calorie intake and a more manageable appetite. Additionally, Semaglutide can slow down the emptying of your stomach, keeping you feeling fuller for longer and ultimately helping navigate chronic weight management.

But Semaglutide's benefits go beyond just feeling satisfied. It also helps regulate insulin, a hormone crucial for blood sugar control. This can be particularly helpful for those with type 2 diabetes, as Semaglutide can work alongside other medications to manage low blood sugar levels more effectively.

What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is another injectable weight loss medication, but it takes a two-pronged approach. It combines the GLP-1 effects of Semaglutide with another gut hormone called gastric inhibitory polypeptide which also contributes to the regulation of food intake. By targeting both GLP-1 and GIP, Tirzepatide may lead to even greater feelings of fullness and potentially even more significant weight loss compared to Semaglutide alone.

Medical Weight Loss Benefits

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide offer innumerable benefits beyond just dropping pounds. Here's how these medications can help you lead a healthier lifestyle:

Better Sleep: Frequent hunger pangs can disrupt your sleep patterns. These medications can regulate your appetite and promote satiety, thereby giving you a more restful night's sleep.

Increased Energy Levels: When your body is constantly striving to manage blood sugar spikes and crashes, you may feel exhausted and lethargic. Semaglutide's ability to control blood sugar levels can translate into higher energy levels throughout the day.

Reduced Risk of Chronic Conditions: Obesity is a significant risk factor for various health issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. By losing weight through Semaglutide and Tirzepatide and adopting healthy lifestyle changes, including healthy diet and exercise, you can significantly reduce your risk of developing these conditions.

Administering Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a self-administered injectable medication. We'll provide detailed instructions and training videos to ensure you feel confident injecting at home. Alternatively, you can schedule appointments at our clinics for your weekly injections administered by a healthcare professional.

Administering a Semaglutide injection is a quick and simple process. No numbing agent or anesthesia is needed. The injection site is cleaned with an alcohol swab. The skin is pinched to create a small bump, and the medication is injected with a fine needle into your abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. Because the needle is so fine, it is painless and quick.

Reaching Your Goals and Maintaining Results

While results with Semaglutide and Tirzepatide can vary depending on individual factors, most patients see significant changes on the scale within a few weeks. Clinical studies showed an average weight loss of 14.8% of body weight or 30 pounds with Semaglutide and 20.9% of body weight or 50 pounds with Tirzepatide. Remember, these medications are designed for long-term use, and a commitment to healthy lifestyle habits like maintaining a balanced diet and exercise program is crucial for maintaining results.
