When it comes to achieving your desired body composition and improving overall health, you can often achieve the most dramatic results by combining treatments. This blog explores the synergy between Ozempic and truSculpt® iD, shedding light on how this dynamic treatment duo can help you enhance the results of your weight loss journey. We'll dive into the benefits of both these treatments, how they work, and the synergistic effects that can occur when you combine Ozempic and truSculpt® iD.
What Is Ozempic and How Does It Work?
Ozempic (semaglutide) is a medication that belongs to a class called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It is primarily used to treat type 2 diabetes by helping regulate blood sugar levels. However, Ozempic has also been found to have additional benefits related to weight loss. It can reduce appetite, increase feelings of fullness, and promote weight loss by slowing down digestion and reducing food cravings. Although it is not officially considered a "weight loss drug," the active ingredient in Ozempic, known as semaglutide, is FDA-approved at higher doses under the name Wegovy, for treating individuals living with obesity and other weight related medical problems.
Ozempic’s weight loss effects have gone viral on social media - causing a surge of people without type 2 diabetes to begin using Ozempic off-label to achieve rapid weight loss.
Benefits of Ozempic: Weight Loss and Metabolic Health
- Controls hunger cravings
- Reduces food intake
- Slows down the digestion process
- Increases your body’s fat-burning ability
- Reduces the risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stoke
- Lowers blood pressure
- Improves mood and sleep
- Increases self-esteem
- Lowers the risk of certain cancers
One of the unfortunate side effects of the rapid weight loss from Ozempic is increased laxity, volume loss, and wrinkles. The saggy skin that is caused by the rapid weight loss as a result of the drug semaglutide is often referred to as “Ozempic face” or “O face."
What Is truSculpt® iD and How Does It Work?
truSculpt® iD is a non-invasive body sculpting treatment that utilizes radiofrequency technology to target and eliminate stubborn fat pockets in nearly all body areas. As the most sophisticated body contouring platform on the market, truSculpt® iD is clinically proven to eliminate 24% of fat cells after one treatment. It works by delivering heat energy to the targeted fat cells, causing them to undergo natural cell death and be gradually eliminated from the body. truSculpt® iD is effective in contouring the body, improving body shape, and reducing unwanted fat bulges. One of the main advantages of truSculpt® iD is that it is a simple and comfortable procedure, requiring no anesthetic and no downtime after treatment.

Ozempic and truSculpt® iD: Combining Treatments Can Improve Overall Results
While medications like Ozempic (semaglutide), Wegovy (semaglutide), and Mounjaro (terzepitide) can help you achieve significant weight loss, you will not have control over where and how those pounds disappear. When truSculpt® iD and Ozempic are used in combination, they create a synergistic effect, enhancing the outcomes of both treatments. Ozempic aids in weight loss, curbing appetite, and promoting feelings of fullness. With a targeted fat-reduction treatment like truSculpt® iD, patients can effectively target and eliminate stubborn areas of body fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Plus, truSculpt® iD also firms and tightens loose skin - making it an ideal treatment for Ozempic face. Since truSculpt® iD is highly customizable, it can be used nearly anywhere on the body, including the chin, arms, flanks, thighs, bra fat, abdomen and more.
This combined approach can help you achieve a more balanced body composition while supporting your overall health and well-being.
