More than a typical med spa, Belle Medical partners with clients to achieve wellness both inside and out through affordable, scientifically backed solutions offering proven results. At the heart of Belle Medical’s mission is the belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to feel good about their bodies. 

“We’re excited to offer our clients proven tools to help them achieve their weight loss goals,” chief marketing officer McKay Taylor said. “We’re here to support you through this journey and to cheer you on.” 

How semaglutide promotes weight loss 

Semaglutide initially entered the market as Ozempic, a drug designed to lower blood sugar and A1C levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. Ozempic helps diabetics manage their condition by taking action when blood sugar rises, prompting the body to release its own supply of insulin while also suppressing unnecessary production of glucose.

Many patients taking Ozempic have experienced an unexpected “side effect” of the drug – astonishing weight loss that further improves their health. That’s because semaglutide improves insulin sensitivity, enhancing the body’s ability to use fat for energy rather than storing it.

Semaglutide further encourages weight loss by mimicking a hormone called GLP-1, which regulates blood sugar levels as well as appetite. By activating this hormone, the drug reduces hunger and increases feelings of fullness, making it much easier to stick to a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Semaglutide? Ozempic? Wegovy? What’s the difference?

The diabetes medicine Ozempic and the weight loss drug Wegovy, two products that have taken the world by storm, are simply brand names for semaglutide. Just like millions of people know Tylenol as the label of generic acetaminophen and Advil as the brand name of ibuprofen, there’s no difference. 

Semaglutide for weight loss is FDA-approved and proven to be extremely effective. In clinical trials, patients lost an average of 15% of their body weight after 12 months of taking semaglutide. That’s between 24 and 36 pounds for most people.

“99% of our patients can find success,” Taylor said. “We’re actually able to guarantee weight loss if they can work with us.”

Making weight loss more affordable

Belle Medical has partnered with compounding pharmacies to create a unique blend of semaglutide plus B vitamins and other additives that increase the drug’s efficacy while reducing side effects. By using generic semaglutide rather than brand names like Wegovy, patients are able to experience weight loss success at a fraction of the price. 

“These brand names are sometimes $1,200 or $1,300 a month, and that’s with insurance,” Taylor said. “Weight loss is something that should be attainable for everyone.” 

Belle Medical offers semaglutide for only $375 per month. This fee includes the initial consultation, weekly injections delivered right to your doorstep and a lifestyle plan designed to help maximize results. There are no hidden fees or price changes, guaranteed.

Ensuring long-term success 

Semaglutide is most beneficial for clients who also practice healthy eating habits and lifestyle modifications to promote weight loss, including exercise. Because everyone’s bodies, goals and needs are different, it doesn’t have to be a long-term commitment. You’re welcome to try it out and see how it works.

Taylor said many Belle Medical patients choose to stay on a small dose of semaglutide to aid in reducing food cravings and controlling overall appetite. If you do decide to stop using the drug altogether, stick to eating smaller portions to help maintain your results.

Nausea is the most common side effect of semaglutide, but patients can usually avoid it by steering clear of high-fat foods in the days surrounding their injections. 

For many people, obtaining the body they want can be a lifelong struggle. If diets, exercise programs and other weight loss “solutions” have left you unsatisfied, Belle Medical can help you achieve the results you’ve been dreaming of. 

“We want to help people feel confident in their own skin,” Taylor said. “The Belle Medical experience is all about creating the best version of yourself.”
