Are weight loss injections safe?

Weight loss is a difficult subject for many. Do you feel stuck, constant dieting with no real results and a need to find an alternative?

There are safe, non-surgical solutions that have lasting effects. But are weight loss injections safe? The short answer: generally, yes. The real question to ask is if weight loss injects are right for you?

The truth about weight loss injections

First, there are three things you need to know before exploring weight loss injection options and deciding if they’re right for you:

  1. They are not magic: Weight loss injections are highly effective – but they’re not a cure-all solution to weight loss. They need to be used as part of a broader weight loss plan featuring diet and exercise. Unfortunately, there simply isn’t a quick fix to weight loss.
  2. Different injections work in different ways: While some injections like Saxenda and Mounjaro curb appetite, others like Aqualyx dissolve localised fat deposits. Speak to a clinician at PrivateDoc to determine which is the best solution.
  3. It’s a very simple process: Expect very minimal downtime, effects within weeks (although this can vary), a non-invasive solution, and easy administration at home. It may not be a quick fix but it’s the quickest fix compared to routes like surgery.
