What are weight loss injections?

You may have previously attempted to achieve weight loss and sustain it over time. Now, with the aid of weight loss injections, you may be able to successfully attain and maintain your weight loss goals. Our FDA-approved weight loss injections are safe and effective when combined with a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

How do weight injections work?

Weight loss injections mimic the body’s natural appetite-suppressing hormones that are released after meals. This helps send a signal of fullness to the brain, reducing hunger and cravings for definitive weight loss. 

Weight loss injections are not a magical solution, however, and must be fused holistically with a healthy lifestyle that includes mindful eating and regular exercise. If you are a patient who has struggled to lose weight on your own, weight loss injections might be the ideal solution for accomplishing your goals.

What are the benefits of weight loss injections?

Each patient treated by Dr. Yael Halaas will receive a personalized weight loss plan and recommendations for post-weight-loss skin tightening. Weight loss injections are a key component of your customized solution and have the following benefits:

Improved stamina and energy

Carrying extra pounds can be exhausting and may inhibit you from enjoying many of your favorite hobbies or sports. Weight loss injections can help you to regain mobility, confidence, and peace of mind. Once you are more active, you will continue to lose more weight.

Enhanced metabolism

When your metabolism is sluggish, it can prevent you from losing the weight you wish to shed. Weight loss injections can jumpstart your metabolism, making it easier to burn calories and fat. With a higher metabolism, your weight loss results will be more dramatic and impactful.

Augmented fat burning

Weight loss injections are engineered with vitamins and amino acids that support the efficient burning of body fat for fuel. This mechanism produces more profound weight loss results and reduces your overall body fat percentage. Clothes fit more naturally and confidence soars. 

Helps to form healthy habits

Weight loss injections, when combined with a healthy lifestyle, can promote long-term weight stability and maintenance. The injections are just a starting point for you to achieve your vision of a slimmer, more youthful-looking physique.

Are there any side effects with weight loss medications?

Like most medications, weight loss injections can come with some side effects. These typically include nausea, exhaustion, and headaches. However, Dr. Halaas and her expert team will be on hand to help navigate any potential discomfort and calibrate your dosage carefully so that your weight-loss journey is stress-free and rewarding. In general, many side effects diminish as the body acclimates to the treatment.

Who qualifies for weight loss injections?

Weight loss injections are suggested for those with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. This number can be lowered to 27 for those with obesity-related comorbidities. During your private consultation, our team will assess your overall health and weight loss goals to ensure that injections will produce the desired body sculpting results. Your weight loss progress will be consistently monitored by our experienced medical professionals.

What Procedures Can Combat Post-Weight-Loss Skin Sagging?

Dr. Halaas performs several state-of-the-art body contouring procedures that can help combat loose, sagging skin after rapid weight loss. She will tailor her approach to your individual preferences, comfort levels, and cosmetic goals.


EMFACE is a cutting-edge, non-invasive solution for firming the facial skin that relies on the same groundbreaking technology as is found in EMSCULPT and EMSCULPT NEO. BTL Aesthetics engineered EMFACE as a viable alternative to facelift surgery. The device tightens the skin and underlying facial muscles to achieve a more streamlined, sculpted facial shape. 

For patients receiving weight loss injections, EMFACE can be undergone simultaneously or immediately after your treatment has concluded. This will ensure that you can enjoy your weight loss results without having to contend with sagging facial skin. EMFACE works by combining powerful radiofrequency (RF) thermal warming with High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Stimulation (HIFES). The RF energy stimulates collagen renewal for a smoother, firmer complexion while the HIFES technology rebuilds lax muscle, fortifying the facial scaffolding and structure.


EMSCULPT is another world-class muscle-firming and skin tightening solution that can be undergone concurrently with your weight loss injections or after you have finished your treatment. This will ensure that you do not have to worry about drooping skin contours when you should be celebrating your weight loss victory. EMSCULPT fuses the innovation of radiofrequency skin heating with high-intensity focused electromagnetic field technology (HIFEM) to both tone the skin and rebuild healthy muscle. 

Without surgery or downtime, EMSCULPT can remodel the physique, producing outstanding body contouring outcomes. The HIFEM mechanism strengthens existing muscle fibers while encouraging the growth of new ones. Results obtained in just 3-4 sessions mimic the gains accomplished over months at the gym. Sessions are performed at 3-month intervals for maximum success.
