Injectable Weight-Loss Solutions AT DERMACARE SAN DIEGO

Reaching an ideal weight can sometimes be a long journey, and many people get lost on the way. For individuals struggling to lose weight, Dermacare Medical Aesthetics can provide injectable weight-loss solutions to make the journey easier. These solutions offer different active agents to help the metabolism shed fat more efficiently. Dermacare Medical Aesthetics can offer injectable weight loss solutions for patients struggling to lose excess weight on their own.

Candidates & Indications

Suitable candidates for injectable weight-loss solutions are individuals with excess weight or obesity with a body mass index (BMI) over 30. This treatment is typically recommended for patients who have tried dieting and exercising with unsatisfactory results. Patients should be in good overall health so that there are as few potential side effects as possible.

Every candidate needs to have realistic expectations when using injectable weight-loss solutions. Patients must understand that these injections should be used together with a comprehensive weight-loss plan. Regular exercise and a healthy diet must be employed for the results to be as close to the patient’s goal as possible.

Individuals who have a history of thyroid cancer may not be suitable for injectable weight loss. The same applies to pregnant or nursing women and patients with known allergies to the ingredients. A consultation is recommended to determine if someone is a candidate or if other fat loss methods could work better for their goals and desires.

How Injectable Weight-Loss Solutions Work

Injectable weight-loss solutions target different body mechanisms that contribute to obesity and weight gain. These treatments help suppress appetite, improve insulin sensitivity, offer a sensation of fullness, and increase the functions of the metabolism.

Once injected, these solutions help patients reduce their calorie intake by suppressing the hormones responsible for hunger. The body can also burn calories faster, resulting in speedier fat loss in different areas. Ultimately, with the help of injectable weight-loss solutions, obese patients can lose up to 13 percent of their body fat after three months following the treatment.

Injectable weight loss works as an adjacent treatment to traditional weight-loss solutions. While it can provide some results on its own, it is recommended that patients combine these injectables with a healthy diet and regular exercise. This type of medication often works by boosting the biological system, which means that its efficiency is increased with the appropriate lifestyle.


Injectable weight-loss solutions do not involve surgery, so the potential for downtime is minimal. However, like with any medication, there may be some side effects. Most of these symptoms occur during the first stages of the treatment, as the body is still adjusting to the medicine’s presence in the bloodstream.

The most common side effects are nausea, constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, and headaches. Not everyone experiences these symptoms, but they can be standard among people prone to intestinal acid buildup. These effects should dissipate within a few days, becoming more tolerable as the body gets used to the medication.

To reduce potential side effects from injectable weight loss, patients should respect the dosage guidelines and not receive more than they should. Ideally, the starting point should be low, only increased when minimal signs of improvement or side effects occur. A consultation is necessary to determine which dosage is correct for you.

Other helpful tips for improving recovery symptoms include eating smaller meals and avoiding oily or fatty foods. Fluid intake should be kept at an appropriate level, as some effects can lead to dehydration. Eat slowly and avoid having meals in the hours before lying down.


Injectable weight-loss solutions have shown significant results, although their extent may vary from one person to another. The injections usually start taking effect upon the first dose, with most patients noticing a loss of two pounds every week. In some individuals, weight loss can be slower, which is nothing to be concerned about.

The results are often seen on the scale by the time the first week passes. However, noticeable effects can take up to several months to truly show. Within the first two to four months, most patients lose an average of 10 to 20 pounds.

A healthy diet and exercise regimen should be kept even after the weight loss journey has ended to maintain these results. While the same lost fat cells cannot return, new ones can form if an unhealthy diet is followed. It takes about a month for the body to clear out the medicine once the treatment has been stopped.
