Weight Loss

Welcome to Prime Youth Aesthetics! We’re excited to introduce Tirzepatide, a groundbreaking medication in the field of weight loss. Derived from the same family as Mounjaro, Tirzepatide stands out as a leading choice for achieving significant weight loss goals.

Research suggests that Tirzepatide is the drug of choice for weight loss due to several compelling reasons:

1. Potent Glucose Control: Tirzepatide, as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, not only helps regulate blood sugar levels but also aids in weight loss by reducing appetite and promoting feelings of fullness.

2. Dual Action: Unlike some other medications, Tirzepatide acts on two fronts: it targets both the pancreas and the brain, effectively controlling blood sugar levels while curbing appetite and promoting weight loss.

3. Clinical Evidence: Clinical trials have demonstrated Tirzepatide’s efficacy in promoting weight loss. Participants in these studies experienced significant reductions in body weight compared to those on a placebo, making it a compelling option for individuals striving to achieve weight loss goals.

4. Cardiovascular Benefits: Additionally, Tirzepatide has shown cardiovascular benefits, which is particularly beneficial for individuals with obesity who may also have underlying cardiovascular risk factors.

5. Tolerability: Tirzepatide has shown good tolerability in clinical trials, with manageable side effects and a favorable safety profile, making it a viable long-term option for weight management.

With its impressive track record, Tirzepatide emerges as our medication of choice for weight loss at Prime Youth Aesthetics. Our team is dedicated to providing personalized care and guidance, ensuring that each individual’s weight loss journey is supported effectively and safely with the use of Tirzepatide. Let’s embark on this transformative journey together towards a healthier, happier you!

 

What is the Difference Between Tirzepatide and Semaglutide?

Tirzepatide

    is sold under the brand name Mounjaro. It’s both a glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and GLP-1 receptor. Tirzepatide mimics the GLP-1 hormone and the GIP hormone. The GIP hormone can also trigger insulin creation and sensations of fullness.

    This means tirzepatide may offer an extra weight loss boost. However, it’s only approved for type 2 diabetes, so any use in weight loss is off-label.

      Semaglutide

      is FDA approved to treat type 2 diabetes under the brand names Ozempic and Wegovy. However, only Wegovy has approval for use in managing weight.

      Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, which means it mimics the GLP 1 hormone and makes you feel less hungry.

      When you eat, your digestive tract releases the GLP-1 hormone, prompting the body to create more insulin. It can also send fullness signals to the brain.
