Weight Loss


J Lynn Skin and Medical Aesthetics is excited to offer one of the most promising new weight loss drugs to hit the market in years!

Semaglutide/Wegovy is a once-weekly injection which has been providing dramatic weight loss results for our patients!

Semaglutide is ideal for patients who have a considerable amount of weight to lose and is a powerful appetite suppressant. This medication has helped our patients lose 50-100 pounds in as little as a year, in conjunction with other lifestyle modification.

How does it work?

Semaglutide is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine used for adults with a diagnosis of obesity (BMI ≥30) or overweight (excess weight) (BMI ≥27) (who also have weight-related medical problems) to help them lose weight and keep it off.

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist. GLP-1 is a natural hormone in your body that acts on your brain to regulate your appetite and food intake. It works by stimulating the pancreas to produce additional insulin, decreasing the stomach’s emptying time and signaling to the brain a feeling of fullness, which helps you lose weight.

After about 1 year (68 weeks), people who took the maintenance dose of Semaglutide, along with a lower-calorie diet and exercise lost an average of 10% to 16% of their starting body weight compared to those following a lower-calorie diet and exercise plan only.
