Semaglutide is a cutting-edge prescription weight loss injection now available at Spark Health. Similar to popular weight loss injections Wegovy(R) and Mounjaro (TM), semaglutide is a type of medication called a GLP-1 analog, that was first used to lower blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. It has more recently been used as an effective weight loss tool for adults with and without high blood sugars. Semaglutide helps increase your satiety after meals, reducing cravings and overeating. Our semaglutide injections are compounded with Vitamin B12, and given once per week, just under the skin. Our doctors track your progress every step of the way and help you minimize side effects (most commonly nausea).
Beware of the other clinics that overpromise and under deliver. At Spark Health, our treatment plans go beyond the injection to support you in building healthy habits that will help you maintain your weight loss, even after you discontinue the medication. Your dedicated doctor and care team will be at your side every step of the way.

Spark Health's weight loss program focuses on treating the whole person. Your doctor will order lab testing to determine any contributing factors that can impede weight loss, such as thyroid function, blood sugar regulation and overall inflammation. Unlike many weight loss clinics that simply provide medication alone, your doctor will work together with you on a plan for optimal metabolic wellness, nutrition and hydration recommendations. Spark Health also offers a transition package focused on optimal nutrition and exercise for sustained weight management.
You will be supported while using injectable medication with weekly check ins to help you effectively reach your goals and will have continued care with repeat lab values and follow up with your doctor to ensure safe and effective weight loss.
As a full-service integrative naturopathic medicine clinic, Spark Health specializes in identifying the root cause of your symptoms and conditions, which can often include other digestive, hormonal or physical ailments. We offer convenient vitamin injections and IV nutrient therapy to complement your weight loss program. Be sure to address any additional concerns with your doctor during your consultation.
Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication for weight loss. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are the most common Semaglutide side effects, but they usually subside after a few weeks of using the medication.
Semaglutide is part of a class of medications called GLP-1 receptor agonists. It improves insulin secretion, which is good for diabetes. But at higher doses, it acts on centers in the brain and suppresses appetite, improves control of eating, and reduces food cravings.
You can start feeling the effects of the Semaglutide at your first dose and may start experiencing weight loss within the first two weeks of your program. The most effective dose to achieve weight loss is different for each person, and the dosage must be increased gradually to limit the risk of side effects. It can take eight weeks to reach your optimal steady-state dose and achieve weight loss in some cases.
No. Currently, the all-inclusive $349/4 weeks is a cash price.
