Weight Loss Injections

The science bit

What is Saxenda or Liraglutide?

Saxenda, also called Liraglutide, is the newest FDA Approved addition to the weight loss market, ideal for people who struggle with their weight.  It was originally developed as an anti-diabetic drug and is still used today for this purpose.

This is a prescription medicine. It comes in the form of a pre-filled pen that you self-inject under the guidance of a medical professional at our clinic.


How Does Saxenda Work?

The medication makes you feel full, by reducing your appetite. It has been tried and tested as a safe Diabetic medication even if you suffer from high blood pressure, a common side effect of being obese.

Who Is Saxenda Treatment Suitable For?

Saxendra is suitable for people with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30kg or higher. It is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 or women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, and it should always be used in combination with a reduced calorie diet and exercise.

When Will I See the Results?

You can expect to lose at least 5% of your starting weight once you’ve been on 3mg daily for 12 weeks, but only if you have been consuming fewer calories and increasing the amount of exercise you take.

What Are the Side Effects From Saxenda?

Nausea is the primary side effect, but you might also suffer from diarrhoea or constipation at the start of the treatment. This is why we start you off on a low dose and gradually increase the dosage, to gradually improve your tolerance.

What Results Can You Expect From Saxenda?

In a clinical study, people who also adopted a low-calorie meal plan and increased their physical activity lost as much as 2.5 times more weight. We will closely monitor you at the clinic throughout the initial 12-week period, to see how you are progressing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Do the Effects Last?
If you continue to take the product you will maintain your weight loss and not regain it. Better still, when you continue to exercise and maintain a healthy diet in the long term, you won’t need to continue with the treatment.
What Are the Alternatives?
Saxenda is an excellent starting point for losing weight, giving you the encouragement and early results you need to inspire you onwards. Liposuction and Liposculpture are your surgical options. SlimFit is a good non-surgical option, harnessing the power of ultrasound and Radio Frequency. But at the end of the day there are no real short cuts – there’s no substitute for a healthy diet including plenty of fibre, and regular exercise.
How Will I Feel?
After 12 weeks you should see a reduction in your weight. You should start to feel more confident in the way you look, and also more confident that you can continue to lose weight with or without the treatment. The less you weigh, the more you can enjoy going out and about, having fun with clothes, and enjoying fashion.
