DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN)– The holiday season is a great time for people who want to create new healthy habits, and Dayton’s Jiva Med Spa has the perfect services to help! Dr. Rakesh Nanda spoke with Living Dayton on Thursday about Jiva Med Spa’s premiere Semaglutide treatment.

Semaglutide is a medically prescribed weight loss solution that suppresses the appetite with a weekly doctor-administered injection. The semaglutide medication imitates the metabolic hormones produced naturally by the gut, pancreas, and nervous system to increase insulin secretion, blood sugar levels, and overall glycemic control.

By doing so, the treatment slows down digestion, decreasing the frequency of gastric emptying, so the stomach feels full for longer. It also targets the reward mechanism within the brain, located in the hypothalamus, to better regulate food intake—so each day, you’ll eat fewer calories but still feel full and satisfied.

Each semaglutide injection works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help suppress appetite and proactively decrease weight, for an average of 3-8 lbs of loss per week. For adults looking for a gradual weight reduction regimen that is safe , semaglutide injections are a perfect solution that only need to be administered once a week, at any time. However, future injections must occur on the same day of the week as the initial treatment to ensure dosages are consistent and most effective.
