Wegovy is, quite simply, the most effective weight loss medication to be approved by the FDA. Patients lost 15-20% of their body weight in clinical trials. When used with EmSculpt NEO, results are incredibly augmented as fat is eliminated and muscle is built.
What is Wegovy?
Wegovy is an injectable prescription medicine used for adults with obesity (BMI over 30) or excess weight (BMI over 27) who also have medical-related medical problems to help them lose weight and keep the weight off. Wegovy should be used with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.
How does Wegovy work?
Wegovy works by mimicking a hormone that targets areas of the brain involved in regulating appetite and food intake. This can help you eat less, which can lead to weight loss.
How much weight have people lost taking Wegovy?
In a 68-week medical study of 1,961 adults living with obesity or excess weight with a related medical problem, adults lost ~35 lbs (or ~15% body weight). People taking a placebo lost an average of 6 lbs (or ~2.5% body weight). The average starting weight for both groups was ~232 lbs.
How soon can I expect to lose weight with Wegovy?
People respond to medicines differently, so there is no set time for when you can expect to see results. At your appointment, we can discuss what might be a realistic expectation for you.
How often is Wegovy taken?
Wegovy is taken once a week, any time of day, with or without food.
Do I have to take Wegovy on the same day every week?
Yes, it's recommended that you take Wegovy on the same day every week at a time that is most convenient for you.
Can I change the day or time when I take Wegovy?
Take Wegovy once a week, on the same day each week, at any time of the day. You may change the day of the week you take Wegovy as long as your last dose was given 2 or more days before.
