What Are Semaglutide Injections?

Semaglutide injections are a type of medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and obesity. Semaglutide belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. These injections offered at Imperial Dermatology are designed to help regulate blood sugar levels and promote weight loss in individuals with diabetes or obesity. Dr. Bartos and her team can consult with patients in Hollywood, FL to draft a personalized treatment plan in order to optimize results.

How Do Semaglutide Injections Work?

Semaglutide injections work by mimicking the action of a hormone called GLP-1, which is naturally produced in the intestines. GLP-1 helps regulate insulin secretion, reduces glucagon production (a hormone that raises blood sugar levels), slows down gastric emptying, and increases feelings of fullness. By activating GLP-1 receptors in the body, semaglutide enhances these effects, leading to improved blood sugar control and weight loss. It also has the potential to decrease appetite, resulting in reduced calorie intake.
