Your Fairlawn Aesthetic MD Guided Semaglutide Dosage Plan
- Starting Smoothly with Fairlawn Aesthetic MD: Rest assured that our professionals at Fairlawn Aesthetic MD guide you towards a subtle introduction with semaglutide. We recommend an initial dosage of 0.25 mg injected once per week for the first four weeks to allow your body to adjust gradually.
- Gradual Increases – Listening to Your Body: After the first month, our dedicated healthcare team will determine if it’s time to gently increase dosage (typically in increments of 0.25 mg per week). Our priority is in ensuring you are comfortable, keeping communication open and adjusting your treatment as necessary.
- Maximum Effectiveness, Minimum Concern: You’ll be supported with the knowledge that the maximum dosage of semaglutide depends on your treatment goals. For type 2 diabetes, typically it is 1 mg per week, but for weight management, it might go up to 2.4 mg per week. We’ll work with you to monitor your body’s response and make the most effective recommendations.
