If you pay attention to the latest options for maintaining your weight and sculpting your body, you’ve no doubt heard about the FDA-approved prescription medicationOzempic. A treatment for type 2 diabetes, the medicine has made headlines for its bonus benefit of modest weight loss. Thanks to this ability to encourage patients to shed pounds, Ozempic has gained off-label popularity as a weight-loss drug, and many non-diabetic people have begun taking it for that reason.
There is plenty to consider before choosing Ozempic for weight loss, but if it’s something you’ve decided to do, pairing it with a body-sculpting treatment like CoolSculpting will not only boost your efforts, but it will also target them to exactly the places you want to. Because let’s face it, most of us have certain specific areas we would prefer to improve even if we also want allover weight loss.
Let’s take a look at how Ozempic and CoolSculpting can work together to help you achieve your ideal weight and shape.
The Benefits of CoolSculpting
You already know that Ozempic is a brand name for a type 2 diabetes medication. So here’s a little refresher on CoolSculpting:
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment for fat reduction that has been successfully and safely provided 8 million+ times worldwide. In fact, we’ve performed more than 6,500 CoolSculpting treatments to date at our Greenwich Medical Spa locations. Today, we offer CoolSculpting Elite, the latest technology from the developers of CoolSculpting, which gives patients better and faster results – that means more fat reduction and less time waiting to see it.
A noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment, CoolSculpting works by targeting fat cells with controlled cooling, a process called cryolipolysis. Surrounding tissues are not affected, but the fat cells are frozen to the point that they are destroyed. During the weeks following a treatment, the old fat cells are naturally eliminated by your body. Best of all, once they are gone, they are gone forever.
CoolSculpting can target fat on the abdomen, thighs, butt, love handles, upper arm, back, under the chin – just about anywhere on the body. But it is not a weight-loss treatment. That’s where Ozempic might come in.
Some Considerations About Ozempic
Ozempic is a semaglutide, a class of medications that mimic hormones related to eating. The semaglutides approved for diabetes are Ozempic and Rybelsus, while Wegovy has been approved to treat obesity. These three are the same medication, but they come in different doses. Semaglutides can be used to treat other health risks too, like heart attack and stroke.
An important aspect of Ozempic and its fellow semaglutides is that they help patients lose weight while they are taking them. When a patient ceases taking the medication, the weight can be regained. That’s because these medications are intended for treating chronic conditions, not to recover from an illness.
How Ozempic and CoolSculpting Can Work Together
With a semaglutide to assist with weight loss, many patients are ready to take their body-sculpting goals to the next level and really achieve the shape they have dreamed about or regain the shape of their younger self.
Taking a semaglutide for weight loss can help a patient shed pounds, but the patient will not have control over where and how those pounds disappear. With a targeted fat-reduction treatment like CoolSculpting, patients can treat just about any area of the body to eliminate unwanted fat.
“We have often seen that even after weight loss, many patients are unhappy with stubborn fat in areas like the stomach or buttocks,” explains GMS Clinical Director Amanda Pucci. “CoolSculpting Elite’s improved applicators can address a specific area to reduce up to 25% of fat in that area. No diet, exercise or medication can deliver that type of targeted result.”
