The Ozempic craze is spreading like wildfire, but is the semaglutide drug right for you? With no prescription required and no downtime, Forma fat freezing may be a better solution.

Ozempic has gained buzzy attention for its effectiveness in weight loss. From celebrities walking the red carpets to regular people across America, many have been effectively using the drug to shed weight. 

Originally developed for managing type 2 diabetes, Ozempic contains the active ingredient semaglutide, which acts on the brain to reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness. You may have also heard the other brand name drugs utilizing semaglutide - Mounjaro, Wegovy, Rybelsus and more.

Individuals have been experiencing significant weight loss when using Ozempic in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity. The drug is administered as a once-weekly injection and has been found to aid in sustained weight loss over time. As with all drugs, however, some common undesirable side effects have been reported like nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, and abdominal pain. In rare cases, there have been more serious side effects such as pancreatitis and kidney problems.

As with all health procedures, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional to determine if Ozempic is a suitable option and to monitor its usage for potential side effects or interactions with other medications.

At Forma, we can help with your weight loss goals without any of the side effects of semaglutide drugs. With no downtime required after treatments, schedule an appointment to see how cryotherapy for fat freezing can help you with your aesthetic goals.
