What Are Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?
Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are both medications that hold promise for weight loss management, however, are primarily used for type 2 diabetes management. Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. It mimics the GLP-1 hormone, which helps regulate blood sugar levels and promotes a feeling of fullness after meals. Semaglutide is available in both oral tablets (brand names: Ozempic, Rybelsus) and injections (brand name: Wegovy). On the other hand, Tirzepatide is unique because it acts as both a glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and a GLP-1 receptor agonist. By stimulating both GLP-1 and GIP receptors, it offers a broad range of metabolic benefits. Tirzepatide is currently only available in injection form (brand name: Mounjaro).

How Do Semaglutide and Tirzepatide Work?


Aesthetic providers administer Semaglutide via a once-a-weekly injection. This convenience makes it more appealing than other diabetes medications that require multiple daily doses. Patients receive the injection, usually in the abdomen or thigh. Semaglutide acts as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, enhancing insulin secretion, slowing digestion, and reducing appetite. The entire process takes only a few minutes. Patients can expect gradual improvements in blood sugar control and potential weight loss over time. Following the injection, patients can resume their daily activities, but it is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including exercise and balanced nutrition.


Tirzepatide is also administered via injection, typically once a week. Its unique feature lies in its dual-action approach, acting as both a GLP-1 receptor agonist and a GIP receptor agonist. Patients receive the injection, similar to semaglutide. Tirzepatide provides glycemic control and appetite regulation. The administration is also quick. Over time, patients may experience improved blood sugar levels and potential weight reduction. After treatment, patients can continue their daily routines as well. Coinciding with the treatment, patients must lead a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet while staying active.
