Semaglutide is a medication used to help control blood sugar levels in patients with Type 2 diabetes, but studies suggest that it may also help people without diabetes lose weight. Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, which mimic the hormone GLP-1 in your body to lower blood sugar levels after you’ve eaten a meal. GLP-1 inhibits glucagon release (which slows down the release of sugar into the blood so that you burn more fat), slows down gastric emptying (makes you feel full), and lowers the desire for food intake (because you feel full).

Semaglutide is not recommended for patients with Type 1 diabetes


How does it work?

  • Injections are once a week and paired with diet and exercise
  • Monthly injections begin at a low dose and gradually build up to weight loss proportions
  • Studies show that weight loss equals 10-15% body weightHow we source our Semaglutide


How we source our Semaglutide

Many people may have questions about the origin of our Semaglutide medication. Tuscan Sun Fontana Medspa sources our Semaglutide from a compounding pharmacy. When medications go on a shortage list, compounding pharmacies are able to compound all of the ingredients that consumers specifically need into medication.

I have been and always will be concerned with the quality of the compounding pharmacies that we conduct business with. I make sure that our compounding pharmacy not only has a third-party lab inspection, but it is also inspected monthly by the Board of Pharmacy (of its respective state). Right now, Semaglutide can be compounded, and we would like all current & prospective patients to know that when the medication goes to a third-party lab, it is tested for purity, pH, and other levels before it is shipped to us. Please keep in mind that sometimes there can be a delay (due to a backup of the third-party lab for testing purposes), but you can be assured we will not accept any medication until it has been fully inspected.

Please also know that our medical team of doctors and nurse practitioners can prescribe name brand weight loss medications, if so desired. One of the pros of compounded prescriptions is that they can be more affordable than name-brand medications because many insurances will not pay for weight loss medications. Another advantage of compounded prescriptions is that they are usually readily available to take home the same day.

At Tuscan Sun Fontana Medspa, we can assure you that we take all precautions and verify that our medications are tested before we offer them to our patients.
