What Is Semaglutide?

While it was initially approved by the FDA for the treatment of type 2 diabetes under the brand name Ozempic®, semaglutide also demonstrated remarkable potential for weight loss. In 2021, semaglutide was FDA-approved for this purpose, under the brand name Wegovy®, and it has remained the target of extensive research, demonstrating remarkable results in clinical trials.

Sometimes referred to as the “skinny shot,” semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist that harnesses the body’s natural mechanisms to promote weight loss. 

GLP-1 (Glucagon-Like Peptide-1) is a hormone naturally produced by the body to stimulate insulin secretion and regulate blood sugar levels. As a GLP-1 agonist, semaglutide mimics this natural hormone’s critical metabolic function. This is why it’s been used to treat type 2 diabetes—and why it helps maintain metabolic stability and regulate appetite to support weight loss. 

As an appetite suppressant, GLP-1 injections also slow down gastric emptying, creating a feeling of fullness that helps you feel satisfied with fewer calories and reduces cravings.

The Benefits of Semaglutide for Weight Loss

Semaglutide is a natural, noninvasive solution for supporting weight loss that also offers a range of metabolic and cardiovascular health benefits, making it an increasingly popular medication for individuals seeking healthy weight management support. 

In clinical trials, semaglutide combined with lifestyle interventions has consistently proven effective in facilitating substantial weight loss, with many studies demonstrating an average loss of 15% after 15–24 months. 

The benefits of weight loss with semaglutide include:

Long-Term Weight Management: Semaglutide treatments help patients not only achieve but maintain a healthy BMI. Long-term weight management can improve mobility, reduce joint pain, and lower risk of heart disease.

Improved Cardiovascular Health: Semaglutide has been shown to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and regulate blood sugar levels to reduce the risk of diabetes.

Increased Energy Levels: By stabilizing blood sugar levels and promoting weight loss, semaglutide can lead to better energy, boosted confidence, and an overall improvement in quality of life.

Reduced Need for Medication and Surgery: For patients struggling to manage their weight through diet and exercise alone, semaglutide offers weight loss support without the need for harsh medications or invasive procedures.

The AIM Semaglutide Program

Here at Atlanta Innovative Medicine, we are committed to providing safe and minimally invasive solutions, and when it comes to weight loss, this means prioritizing natural, lifestyle methods. 

However, we also understand that weight loss can be influenced by various factors, including your environment, genetics, and underlying health conditions—meaning that for some, conventional lifestyle methods aren’t enough. 

That’s why we offer a comprehensive weight loss program that integrates nutrition and fitness coaching with semaglutide management to enable patients to overcome barriers and achieve their full weight loss goals.

Like every treatment here at AIM, the Semaglutide Weight Loss Program is always designed just for you and your specific set of weight loss challenges. Your program will include the following components, each tailored to you:

Initial Visit: To ensure the most highly personalized and therefore effective program possible, we always begin with a thorough health assessment with one of our Nurse Practitioners, who are certified in medical weight loss by Elite NP and accredited by ANCC.

Highly Personalized Labs: Based on your initial consultation, we will order a detailed set of lab tests which will allow us to tailor the program to your body’s requirements, ensuring safe and effective treatment.

Tailored Semaglutide Medication: Once we have received your lab results, our team will develop your dosage plan, working with highly qualified specialty pharmacists who will compound semaglutide injections just for you.

Once-Weekly Injections: We will then provide you with prefilled semaglutide syringes which you will administer subcutaneously at home. We will guide you through your first injection, training you to administer your remaining injections yourself. For a small additional fee, we also invite you to receive your injections in our office each week. 

Ongoing Lifestyle Support: Alongside your semaglutide injections, we provide you with a comprehensive plan including nutrition, fitness, and supplement recommendations and resources. This plan will be catered to you and adapted as you progress. Additionally, to kickstart your lifestyle program, we offer:

  • one free training session at Anytime Fitness to get you started on a fitness plan that works for you;
  • one free Evolt body scan at Anytime Fitness to help you accurately track your weight loss progress; and
  • one $15 gift card to Salata where you can build your own fresh salads to meet your nutrition needs.

Ongoing Monitoring: To ensure your continued progress and ultimate success, we conduct new lab tests every 90 days, allowing us to adapt your program as you progress, adjusting your semaglutide dosage as necessary. 

What to Expect During Your First Appointment with AIM

At AIM, your safety, comfort, and individual goals are our top priorities. From the moment you walk through our doors, we strive to create a welcoming and comfortable environment and to help you feel empowered in your weight loss journey. 

Before we begin, you’ll be asked to fill out some initial paperwork to ensure we have all the necessary information about your medical history and current health status.

You will then meet with one of our certified medical providers to discuss your weight loss goals and assess if you are a suitable candidate for the program. Semaglutide is not for everyone, and it’s important that we consider factors such as previous weight loss attempts, current BMI, and preexisting medical conditions to determine your eligibility. If you are a candidate, we will order lab tests to inform the development of your program. We typically get results in 1–5 days.

Once we receive your lab results, you’ll return for a follow-up appointment to review the findings and get started with your personalized Semaglutide Weight Loss Program. This will involve recommendations for dietary and exercise plans, details about semaglutide injections, and other information specific to your needs. 

It’s important that you feel comfortable and informed every step of the way, so we will always take the time to address your questions and make sure you know what to expect of your treatment.

Frequently asked questions

FAQs about Semaglutide

As is true of any weight loss solution, achieving a healthy lifestyle, including proper nutrition and fitness, is crucial to lasting weight loss. That said, semaglutide has shown remarkable results for helping individuals both lose and maintain a healthy weight over time, with numerous studies demonstrating substantial weight loss even after 68 weeks of treatment.

Typically, noticeable weight loss begins after 8–12 weeks of injections, and in fact, some clinical trials show patients losing as much as 6% of their body weight by the 12-week mark. Of course, exact weight loss timelines vary from patient to patient, depending on factors like dosage, metabolism, and adherence to your overall plan. Some individuals may experience gradual weight loss in the initial weeks, while others may see more significant changes over time.

It’s essential that every patient receives thorough evaluation with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if semaglutide is appropriate for their specific circumstances. That said, ideal candidates for AIM’s Semaglutide Weight Loss Program are typically individuals who:


  • have a BMI of 30 or higher (or a BMI of 27 or higher and at least one weight-related comorbidity, such as insulin resistance);
  • have struggled to achieve significant weight loss through diet and exercise alone; and 
  • are seeking to regulate their appetite or manage cravings.

Semaglutide is not recommended for individuals who:


  • have a BMI lower than 27;
  • have not yet attempted other weight loss methods;
  • have a history of pancreatitis or thyroid cancer;
  • have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome, type 2;
  • have an allergy to semaglutide or any of its ingredients; or
  • are pregnant or breastfeeding

There are several other underlying conditions and health factors that can make you ineligible for treatment. For this reason, it’s important to undergo a comprehensive medical evaluation—which we can perform in-house—before moving forward with semaglutide weight loss injections.

While semaglutide is generally well-tolerated, it can cause side effects in some individuals. The most common of these include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, and decreased appetite. These side effects are usually mild to moderate in severity and tend to improve over time as the body adjusts to the medication.

The cost of a semaglutide medication itself depends on the specific dosage prescribed to you; and the total cost of treatment varies from one weight loss clinic to the next. Here at AIM, we offer our Semaglutide Weight Loss Program under a membership model to ensure simple, affordable treatment while maintaining consistent, highly personalized care. After your $50 initial evaluation appointment, our program includes your semaglutide prescriptions, dietary and exercise resources, and ongoing lifestyle support at a rate of $400 per month. After the first month, we also introduce a prepay discount, offering 90 days of treatment for a total of $1050.

While the Semaglutide Weight Loss Program is typically not covered by insurance, most insurance providers cover the lab tests needed to support your program. Additionally, we are happy to discuss medical financing options to help you afford treatment.

Semaglutide is not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding due to potential risks to the fetus. Studies on the safety of semaglutide during pregnancy have not been conducted, and it is unknown whether semaglutide passes into breast milk.
