At Skintique Clinic our goal is to look after all aspects of health and wellbeing. We can help you to sustain a healthy weight loss, with ongoing advice and support alongside a prescription medication treatment.
The injection is an off-label prescription-only medicine called Semaglutide, which can only be prescribed for you following a consultation. A blood test is required prior to taking this medication, you can request this from your GP or we can arrange for this to be done at the clinic.
Semaglutide has been used in the UK for a number of years ‘off label’ to treat obesity. It has been thoroughly tested in its licenced form in the UK for treating type 2 diabetes and is safe to use.
In February 2022 NICE gave approval for Semaglutide to be licenced for use in the treatment of obesity and will be rolled out to the NHS in the latter part of 2022.
It will be distributed under the name Wegovy™ instead of the current name of Ozempic
