Weight Loss Shot

One step closer to your weight loss goal

One step closer to your weight loss goal

Designed to help adults with a body mass index of 27 or above, Saxenda is an FDA-approved, self-injectable treatment which helps with weight loss and maintaining weight loss.

How does Saxenda work? Your body naturally produces an appetite hormone called glucagon-like-peptide (GLP-1, for short). This helps to regulate hunger in the body.

Saxenda mimics the role of GLP-1 in a bid to regulate appetite further, leading to fewer calories consumed and consequently weight loss. It’s important that Saxenda is used in conjunction with a meal plan and exercise regime in order for a calorie deficit to be present – this is when weight loss occurs.

To administer Saxenda, your practitioner will teach you how to safely self-inject into the stomach area, upper leg area or upper arm.

Common questions

  • You may feel a small, sharp scratch when you self-inject but this will only last a few seconds at most.

  • Nausea is the most common side effect but this typically passes once your body is used to the medicine. Others include diarrhea, constipation, headache, vomiting, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), decreased appetite, upset stomach, tiredness, dizziness, stomach pain, and changes in enzyme (lipase) levels in your blood.

  • In conjunction with a calorie-controlled meal plan and exercise regime, Saxenda can help you to lose weight and keep it off.

  • Saxenda is the only FDA-approved weight-loss pen. Your VIVA practitioner will discuss your suitability for this treatment during your consultation to ensure you are a good candidate and can administer the injection safely.

I have been coming to Viva Skin for just over a year and see Dr Rupert. I am always made to feel so welcomed from when I first step through the door to when I leave my appointment with the most relaxing vibe. Dr Rupert is incredibly knowledgable and understanding and will always listen and is always there for you if you need anything before or after my treatment. I have had to phone a few times to rearrange my booking and the team at the other end of the phone make it so easy and effortless I can’t recommend Dr Rupert and the team enough. Thanks again!
