Most often, patients experience some redness, pinpoint bleeding, mild bruising, and swelling in the first 24 hours. Some patients have reported bumps or grid marks. Most symptoms resolve within 24 to 72 hours following treatment.
Some tightening will be visible immediately. New collagen and elastin formation begins after about 4 weeks, and becomes most noticeable about 3-6 months after treatment, and continues to improve up to a year.
Semaglutide belongs to a class of drugs called incretin mimetics. Semaglutide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist only.
A GLP-1 receptor agonist is a non-insulin type of medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. It mimics the effects of glucagon-like peptides. This type of hormone often falls below the normal level in people with type 2 diabetes. Due to their GLP-1 mimicking effects, these medications can help control blood sugar levels and appetite. They also slow the rate of stomach emptying, which further helps maintain blood sugar levels after eating.
A GIP receptor agonist is a medication that affects the body’s hunger hormones. It works with the gastric inhibitory polypeptide hormones in the body to encourage insulin production. But it also increases the body’s insulin sensitivity, which can help control the appetite.
