Wellness Weight Management

Wellness Weight Management

At Gig Harbor Aesthetics, our comprehensive wellness weight program is designed to help our patients improve their health and reach their weight loss goals. Excess weight and obesity can be influenced by various environmental, behavioral, and genetic factors. By utilizing a combination of medications, nutrition counseling, behavioral modification, and exercise, we can address the underlying causes contributing to excess weight and make weight loss more achievable.
 
The two medications that we utilize are compounded Semaglutide and Tirzepatide. Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonist, while Tirzepatide functions as a glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonist and a glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) agonist. Both medications aid in weight loss by reducing appetite, increasing satiety, delaying gastric emptying, and increasing insulin secretion.
 
During your consultation, Shiane Filmer, ARNP, will review your medical history, conduct a physical examination, take body measurements, and obtain vital signs. If you are a suitable candidate for treatment, Shiane will collaborate with you to develop a personalized care plan based on your wellness goals. Medications will be administered during weekly in-office appointments to allow for close monitoring during the initiation of the medication. You will also have monthly visits with Shiane to track your progress, address any concerns, and adjust your medication dosage if necessary. Once you are stable on your medication, and if it’s considered safe and appropriate, Shiane may change the frequency of your visits.
