Our Semaglutide for Weight Loss Program in Austin is one of our most popular weight loss programs, and it’s easy to tell why. It doesn’t require a highly restrictive diet or strenuous workouts—but still delivers results! If you stick to the program, you can expect to lose an average of one to three pounds per week without drastically changing your diet.
Semaglutide is an FDA-approved injection medication that’s been proven to help overweight adults lose weight and keep it off. By mimicking Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body, Semaglutide can increase insulin secretion and slow down gastric emptying—or, how fast your stomach empties food. This can suppress your appetite—so you feel full longer—helping you eat less and lose weight in the process.
Visit our weight loss clinic in Austin for an initial exam and weigh-in. After a quick assessment to determine if Semaglutide is right for you, you’ll receive a prescription supply of Semaglutide that will last you 4 weeks. We’ll also provide all the materials and information you need to get started with your new weight-loss program.
After your initial consultation, you can start taking Semaglutide injections either at home or at the Blue Tree office. If you’re interested, we can also recommend a low-calorie diet to speed up the rate at which you lose weight, as well as other supplementary products to boost your results.
Once the program is over, we’ll provide a custom-made maintenance plan designed just for you. We can also provide (completely optional) lipoden injections and guidance to enhance your weight-loss performance, and keep the weight off for good.
Optional Lipoden Injections will be administered to help accelerate weight loss. Lipoden can accelerate weight loss with an additional 1/2-1lb/week on average.

Yes. Semaglutide is an FDA-approved injectable prescription medication for adults who are either overweight or obese. Technically referred to as a “GLP-1 receptor agonist medicine,” Semaglutide mimics glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) by increasing insulin secretion and suppressing appetite.
Yes. Both Wegovy™ and Ozempic® are branded medicines made by Novo Nordisk, a Danish multinational pharmaceutical company. Both Wegovy™ and Ozempic® contain semaglutide and should not be used while taking other GLP-1 receptor agonist medicines.
Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (or GLP-1) that specifically targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. This can help you eat less, thereby helping you lose weight.

Not exactly. While a reduced-calorie meal plan can certainly help increase the rate at which you lose weight (and help you keep it off), dieting is not required to lose weight on the program.
If you want to lose more weight faster, we can suggest a low calorie diet for you to follow that’s guaranteed to make weight loss easier by increasing the number of calories you burn each day.
Until you hit your goal weight and then a maintenance dose is an option to maintain your weight. (This is Depending on supply. Currently we are not experiencing a shortage with our pharmacy… knock on wood :)
No, as long as you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle ( Low sugar/starch intake, exercise, reduce processed foods, staying with BMR-please discuss with provider) Use the medicine as tool to change your lifestyle instead of doing a crash diet. Crash Diets in the long term are not sustainable so it’s important to use medicine as a tool to help make better lifestyle changes (as with any weight loss medicine.)It also helps after you lose your weight to weigh at home weekly and have some sort of accountability. (Example: Check in for a B12 or Lipoden shot once a month).
Semaglutide has a very consistent average weight loss of 4-8 lbs a month.
Everyone is very different on they process medicine. Some people process medicine at a faster rate than others so it can be done earlier than a week if you would like to increase the concentration faster.
Please talk with a nurse or the provider about this option but generally every 5-7 days is good assuming there is no nausea.
No, you may stay at any dose if you are happy with your progress and are not experiencing any unwanted side effects.
We use the largest FDA registered & Inspected pharmacy in the United States, which is based out of Florida :)
