Medical Weight Loss

GLP-1 Therapy
Premier Aesthetics offers a medical weight loss program designed to assist individuals in losing weight safely and efficiently. Since 2021, GLP-1 medications have been utilized in different forms to aid obese patients (BMI ≥ 30) and overweight patients (BMI ≥ 27) with at least one weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure, type II diabetes, or high cholesterol. When combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise, GLP-1 medications can facilitate weight loss and decrease health risks linked to excess weight.
About GLP-1 Medications

All of us naturally have GLP-1s in our bodies. These hormones are released from the gut after meals. Drugs like semaglutide or tirzepatide mimic GLP-1 and attach to its receptors, enhancing insulin sensitivity, reducing glucose production, and inducing a feeling of fullness.

  • GLP-1 production increases feeling of satiety by:
    • slowing gastric emptying – feel fuller, faster & longer
    • suppressing appetite receptors in brain – less hunger & cravings
  • GLP-1 cells in the small intestine regulate carbohydrate metabolism through:
    • increasing insulin production – regulates blood glucose
    • suppressing glucagon release

Ideal Candidates

GLP-1 medications have been successfully used for obese patients (BMI greater than or equal to 30) and for overweight patients (BMI greater than or equal to 27) who also have other health conditions contributing to weight.  Additionally, patients who are unable to lose weight after making lifestyle changes see great results with the use of GLP-1s.

These medications are not recommended for patients with certain types of thyroid cancers, pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, hypoglycemia, decreased kidney function, or who are pregnant. 


Studies revealed that over 80% of patients who took tirzepatide lost 5% of their body weight.  At the maximum dosage, they lost 15-21% of their body weight. 

A GLP-1 medication is a tool to assist in weight loss while making lifestyle changes.  Your provider at Premier Aesthetics will guide you through this journey by giving you the best practices for choosing healthier foods and suggestions for physical activity.  Our goal is to help you lose weight safely and sustainably.
