Weight loss is a common goal for people who walk into a med spa. Weight loss plans are always a great idea, but weight loss injections can give you the jumpstart you need. These are a great idea if you’ve hit a plateau and are having difficulty losing weight. Here’s a quick introduction to Tirzepatide to help you learn more.

What Is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is an FDA-approved medication for Type 2 diabetes that helps reduce the body’s insulin levels and blood sugar. This treatment has also proved to be an effective treatment for those without diabetes who are struggling with weight loss. These weight loss injections work by mimicking the effects of the hormones your body produces after eating. These hormones tell your pancreas to release insulin and your liver to reduce its glucose production. As a result, Tirzepatide helps to lower blood sugar and slow down digestion.

While these weight loss injections help to reduce blood sugar levels, they also help to slow the movement of food through your body. This helps you feel full for a longer period of time, which can help you lose weight.

What’s the Recommended Dosage of Tirzepatide?

For these weight loss injections, we recommend beginning with 25 units per week. Tirzepatide is injected into your stomach fat (not the stomach itself). Patients have reported minimal discomfort, so you don’t need to worry about pain. If you feel the need to increase your dosage, your aesthetician may recommend more medication as needed.

Do I Need to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle?

Weight loss injections are a spectacular way to lose weight or give your weight loss goals a boost. According to Statista, up to 48% of Americans say their New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle while receiving Tirzepatide. While Tirzepatide can help you feel fuller for longer and reduce blood sugar, it’s still up to you to make sure you’re getting plenty of protein, fruits and vegetables, and regular exercise.

We understand that you always want to look and feel your best. Weight loss plans and injections are a great way to do that. If you’re interested in learning more about Tirzepatide or our other wellness plans, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team at Timeless Age Medical today.
