Medical Weight Loss Injections in London

Do you find losing weight or maintaining the weight you have lost is a constant struggle? 

Have you exhausted every weight loss management plan?

Even with exercise, are you still unable to shift that last bit of excess weight? 

At Harley Street MD in London, our GMC registered doctor has assisted hundreds of people like you to achieve their ideal weight and body mass index (BMI) permanently. If you have been considering injections for weight loss, Saxenda weight loss injections are an FDA-approved prescription medicine in use since December 2014 for chronic weight management.  Saxenda weight loss medication was also given supplemental FDA approval for use as a weight management drug for patients aged 12 and over in 2020.

Benefits of Saxenda Weight Loss Injections 

Carrying excess weight increases the risk of serious health conditions, including diabetes, stroke and heart attack; however, hunger pain is often intense and difficult to fight against. At our aesthetic clinic in London, we understand how equally real the power of hunger is. That is why Harley Street MD believes in prescribing  Saxenda weight loss injections to suitable individuals. 

If you have been trying to lose weight or have constantly battled your weight fluctuating, following weight management plans, Saxenda weight loss injections can help you to reach and maintain your goal weight for life. You can regain the power to stick to a nutritional plan that will fuel your body and mind while losing excess weight. Although it can be extremely difficult to obtain a prescription for weight loss injections through your GP, you do not need a referral to receive medical weight loss treatments in London at our CQC registered clinic. 

Sometimes, all you need is a kickstart to boost weight loss and ignite your inner motivation. Science has evolved and so should we. Saxenda weight loss injections have supported countless people treated at our London clinic to transform both their body and mind — resulting in long-term, sustainable weight loss.

Saxenda is a clinically proven medication that works by regulating your appetite and helps to:

  • Control hunger — When you are no longer driven by hunger pain, you feel more in control of what you eat, and it becomes easier to make healthy choices.
  • Feel full quicker — Smaller portions of food will fill you up, making it easier to stick to a calorie-controlled, nutritious weight management plan.
  • Feel full for longer — You will remain satisfied for longer after eating, making it easier to resist snacking on high-calorie food. 

How Do Saxenda Weight Loss Injections Work?

Saxenda contains the medication liraglutide, a long-acting glucagon-like-peptide (GLP-1) agonist. It works in a similar way to GLP-1, a naturally occurring hormone that helps regulate your appetite and can make you feel full faster. Additionally, it slows down the emptying of your stomach, which prolongs the sensation of being full.

Saxenda weight loss injections support weight loss by giving you control over the amount and the type of food you eat, enabling you to follow a calorie-controlled diet.

Saxenda is not a “magic” weight loss medication and you will need to eat sensible, balanced meals to lose weight. But unlike other dieting fads out there, this weight management treatment can help you to transform your eating habits to ensure you can keep the weight off when you reach your goal weight and stop using them. 

Can Anyone Use Saxendra Weight Loss Injections?

The great thing about Saxenda weight loss injections is they can be used by almost anyone unable to reach or maintain a healthy BMI with diet and exercise. Additionally, it is one of the most flexible weight loss injection treatments in the UK that can be used at any time of the day. So you can choose a time that fits best with your daily schedule. 

When paired with a healthy diet and exercise regime, Saxenda has proven an effective weight loss medical treatment in numerous clinical trials. The results of three randomised, double-blind clinical trials of Saxenda weight loss injections were evaluated by the FDA as part of the approval process. 

All of these trials ran for 56 weeks and were conducted to assess the safety and effectiveness of Saxenda when compared to a placebo. The overall results from all three trials showed participants taking Saxenda weight loss injections over 56 weeks achieved between 5-10% greater weight loss in comparison to participants who took a placebo. 

Harley Street MD Saxenda Weight Loss Treatment 

Saxenda weight loss injections are suitable for anyone with a BMI of 30 or more or a BMI of 27 with one or more weight-related co-morbid conditions. Not only can Saxenda be a solution for weight loss, but it can also help you regain control over your long-term eating habits. 

At Harley Street MD in London, during your consultation for Saxenda weight loss injections, you can discuss your weight loss goals with our doctors and ask any questions about the treatment. Before Saxenda is prescribed, your medical history will be reviewed, and your weight, height and other vital signs (body temperature, pulse rate, respiration and blood pressure) are taken, alongside an advanced health profile blood test to identify any signs of underlying health conditions that require further investigation before starting the treatment.

Only once it has been determined there are no contraindications for treatment with Saxenda will our doctors prescribe this medication. For your safety, we do not prescribe Saxenda online because it is not possible to take accurate readings of your vitals without a face-to-face consultation. During your consultation, we will also teach you how to administer the Saxenda weight loss injections and provide you with all the necessary medical assistance. 

At our London clinic, our doctors are here to help you every step of the way and can be reached by telephone if you have any concerns. Treatment with Saxenda weight loss injections at Harley Street, MD, is so much more than a simple prescription for the medication. To monitor your progress and ensure your safety for the first three months, you will be provided with a monthly follow-up appointment. This will include measurements of your vitals and enable our doctors to adjust your dosage if required.

Saxenda Weight Loss Injections Starter Package

To start your treatment with Saxenda weight loss injections, you will be prescribed a starter package consisting of five Saxenda injection pens, 100 subcutaneous needles and a sharp box. This will last you at least 44 days. We will help you with the first administration at the clinic and give you all the necessary information about the protocol.

The great thing about Saxenda weight loss injections is they can be taken at any time of the day, morning or night, with a meal or without one. 

DISCLAIMER: With Saxenda, most patients may achieve weight loss. However, there is no guarantee of the result or the time it may take.  A low-calorie diet and/or increased physical activity are required to lose weight while on Saxenda.
