PRESCRIPTION WEIGHT LOSS MANAGEMENT
Slimming injections are a weight loss treatment that contains the medication known as liraglutide. At Elite aesthetics Clinic, we offer our patients professional weight management treatment.
This treatment is widely considered to be a very reliable and effective weight loss solution that involves the control of your appetite.
Many people who try to lose weight by following healthier eating plans, exercise routines and even in some cases, more extreme diets, still struggle with maintaining weight loss.
Often the problem of continuing to lose weight comes down to genetics and hormonal fluctuation which makes controlling appetite difficult.
The slimming injection consists of liraglutide, which is a very similar, but synthetic version of a hormone, known as GLP-1. This hormone is naturally produced in the intestine after you’ve eaten food.
It is administered via injections and works as an appetite suppressant by telling the receptors to make you feel full and slowing down the digestion of food.
As it reduces your appetite, it enables you to stick to a diet with a controlled daily calorie intake and can help you to lose weight consistently.
What are the benefits of slimming injection?
It has been shown that when combined with increased physical activity and a low-calorie dietary plan that taking regular doses of Slimming injection is more effective for losing weight than just dieting on its own.
It has also been shown to reduce high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
It is self-injectable so does not require as many visits to a clinic.
What are the downsides, risks and side effects, of using weight loss injections?
As with most medications and treatments, there is always the chance you will experience side effects or risks. Although not everyone will suffer from them, the most common are:
These are considered very minor and tend to settle gradually during the first few days or weeks of using the medication, as your body adjusts to it.
There are very rare chances of more serious conditions such as
Gall Bladder Disease
All the potential side effects and risks will be explained fully when you make a consultation appointment with our specialist.
Who are Weight Loss Injections not suitable for?
You should avoid using weight loss injections if you meet any of the following criteria:
You or a member of your family have a Medullary Thyroid Cancer (MTC)
You have been diagnosed with Multiple Endocrine Adenomatosis Type 2 (MEN2) – a disease that causes sufferers to have tumours in multiple glands
You suffer from an allergy to liraglutide or any other ingredients found in Saxenda.
Do these need to be injected by my health care professional?
As it is a self-injectable, once-daily medication that is provided in a pre-filled pen, you should be able to administer it yourself.
Before you use it for the very first time though, our specialist will teach you how to use it.
Don’t worry, the needle is very thin and only short enough to breach the fatty layer of skin. It’s generally painless.
If you had thoughts of huge, long needles, this is not the case.
How long does an injection pen last?
Once you have followed the dosing schedule properly and are taking 3mg, each injection pen will last for a maximum of six days. Your first pen on the lowest dosage will last around 4/5 weeks.
There are several options available. The initial consultation, which includes 1 x pen, needles and alcohol wipes is priced at £150.
Course of 5 pens with regular consultations plus consumables £600
We strongly recommend a 10-week schedule of injections because after that period, you should have been fully exposed to the appetite reduction and experienced a considerable amount of weight loss.
Afterwards, you will then be in a better position to decide whether or not you would like to continue with treatment. The price of your medication after your initial consultation will depend on the length of your program.
What Should I do to Get Started?
The first thing you need to do if you are interested in the weight loss management treatment is to book your consultation online or give us a call.
Your consultation will be with one of our qualified and highly skilled specialists. They will not only discuss your medical history, but explain the treatment, the side effects and assess if you are eligible to go ahead.
