If you’re bothered by stubborn weight, you know how frustrating it can be when endless diet and exercise routines are fruitless. At Defiage Med Spa in Houston TX and Katy TX, we understand the importance of achieving a healthy and fulfilling life, and we recognize that significant weight loss often requires more than just diet and exercise.

Fortunately, we now offer a breakthrough treatment option that can help you overcome those barriers! Semaglutide, available at Defiage Med Spa, is an injectable medication that can make your desired weight loss achievable.


Semaglutide is a safe and effective choice for chronic weight management. This prescription medication belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1). Although originally developed as an antidiabetic medication, semaglutide has proven to be a powerful tool for weight loss intervention, offering significant benefits without the side effects commonly associated with many weight loss medications.

Originally intended for patients with type 2 diabetes, semaglutide is highly effective and safe for weight loss in people with obesity. By mimicking the effects of the naturally occurring hormone GLP-1, semaglutide helps reduce hunger and increase feelings of fullness, leading to a decrease in calorie intake and subsequent weight loss. The medication acts on the brain’s appetite and food intake centers, making it easier to maintain a reduced-calorie diet, lose body weight, and prevent further weight gain.


Semaglutide injections offer a range of significant benefits for weight loss. Clinical trials have demonstrated remarkable results, with patients achieving a 6% weight loss by week 12 and an impressive 12% weight loss by week 28. In addition to weight loss, semaglutide can improve other health markers such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar control. It may also enhance insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation, providing added benefits for individuals with conditions like type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.

Semaglutide injections bring a wide range of health and weight loss benefits, including:

  • Significant weight loss and reduction in initial body weight
  • Improved waist circumference and body mass reduction
  • Reduced appetite and increased feelings of fullness
  • Improved metabolic health
  • Reduced risk for cardiovascular disease and heart disease
  • Long-lasting effects
  • Safe and well-tolerated
  • Convenient and easy to use.

Weight loss with semaglutide involves reducing your appetite and helping you feel fuller for longer periods. When you take semaglutide, it mimics a hormone called GLP-1 in your body, which plays a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels and appetite. The treatment is delivered as subcutaneous injections, typically administered once a week.

By mimicking GLP-1, semaglutide injections enhance insulin secretion and trick your brain into thinking that you are less hungry, leading to a decrease in food intake and the adoption of a low-calorie diet. Additionally, semaglutide slows down stomach emptying, allowing you to feel satisfied for a longer time after eating.

By consuming fewer calories and feeling fuller, you can achieve significant weight loss over time!


Most patients in the Houston area will find that weight loss is gradual and can be seen over the long term. While some people may experience a moderate degree of weight loss within the first few weeks of starting treatment, most patients will start to see more significant results after 12 weeks of use.

While semaglutide is an effective treatment, it should be used in combination with regular physical activity and a healthy diet for the best results!
