Weight Loss Injections ( Saxenda©)
As well as travel injections we also have a weight loss service where patients can book a consultation with our prescribing pharmacist who will provide a full assessment and where necessary may prescribe weight loss injections to help support a hypo calorific diet and exercise. These Saxenda© injections are highly effective and safe when used under the supervision of healthcare professionals.
Saxenda is an injection containing the active ingredient liraglutide, which is similar to a naturally occurring hormone released in the body after meals called GLP-1. It works in the brain, helping to suppress the appetite. This makes you feel full more quickly, and therefore encourages you to eat less.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on 020 8449 0909 to discuss further details on this service.
