Ozempic, Wegovy, Semaglutide, OH MY!! That’s right Dorothy, we aren’t in Kansas anymore, we are now in the land of weight loss injections!

The viral sensation that is weight loss injections, is sweeping the nation from moms and dads, to CEO, and Celebrities!

But with all the different versions of the weight loss injectable, how do you know what’s best?

Let us help! We are going to break down the injectable ingredients, the name differences and which option is the right one for you.



Guess what? Semaglutide is the active ingredient in the weight loss drugs, Ozempic and Wegovy.

That means that Ozempic and Wegovy are the different brand names that companies use to promote and differentiate their product.

Think of Semaglutide like you would think of Acetaminophen. But what is Acetaminophen usually referred to as? Tylenol!

In our previous blog “Semaglutide in Bellevue” , we did a deep dive into the inner workings of Semaglutide including how it works to aid people with Diabetes as well as those interested in weight loss!

And yes, at first, these injections (Ozempic) were marketed for Diabetes, however, with how efficient the injections worked for weight loss, companies looked to get FDA approval for that as well, which is what Wegovy is approved for.

In the end, it’s all the same main active ingredient, Semaglutide, that promotes the feeling of fullness and appetite suppression.

And now it’s a worldwide phenomenon!

Even here at Advanced Skin & Body Solutions, we just announced that we are now offering Semaglutide at our 2 locations, Bellvue and Issaquah.



Why Choose Semaglutide Over Ozempic



Now that Semaglutide is available in the generic form, there is no reason to spend money on the brand name for the same results.

When a product comes on the market as the “generic” form it has to mirror the effects of the brand names in order to call it the generic version.

Again, think of Tylenol vs, the generic/ingredient name of Acetaminophen. You can buy the department store version and Tylenol and there would be no difference in ingredients. And the generic version will be cheaper as well!

That’s what the Semaglutide injectable is: A more affordable, but as effective weight loss injection when compared to Ozempic (the brand name).


No Prescription Necessary

If you’re interested in Ozempic, you’ll need a prescription from your doctor. Since it’s main purpose is for Diabetes, you’ll need to discuss the off-label use with your provider.

Semaglutide is non-prescription, however you will need to go through a reputable provider like a medspa, who can guide you through the process and assist you on your journey to weight loss.
