Groundbreaking Injectable Treatment For Weight Loss:

Tirzepatide is an injectable medication that is administered once a week. It is not a quick fix but rather meant to assist with healthy, long-term weight management. Since it slows down the speed with which food leaves your stomach and regulates insulin levels, you feel full longer, causing you to eat less. Many patients are able to lose one to two pounds every week.

You will lose weight safely and gradually, making it easier to remain committed to your diet in the long run. Some medications only work while they remain in your system. Tirzepatide, on the other hand, helps people develop healthier eating habits, so they can maintain their results even after they stop taking it. Tirzepatide is self-administered once a week, or with the help from one of our nurses, which also makes it a very convenient part of your regimen.

If you are looking for a lasting weight loss solution that allows you to safely reach your goals, this treatment may be right for you.

    What is Tirzepatide?

    Tirzepatide injection is a glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptor and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist.  Tirzepatide acts on the brain and suppresses appetite. Used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, Tirzepatide helps patients adhere to a reduced-calorie diet, enhancing the weight loss process.

      How it works:

      Step 1 Consultation

      Request a consultation with our healthcare provider to ensure this treatment aligns with your needs and goals. In this consultation, possible side effects and contraindications will also be discussed, along with recommendations regarding lifestyle adjustments like diet and exercise while undergoing weight loss injections.

      Step 2: Treatment Planning

      The provider will give you information so we can create a customized treatment plan based on your goals. You’ll also be taught how to self-administer injections. While the idea might seem intimidating at first, it’s a task many people tackle daily. We will also offer weekly injections at The Center for a minimal fee if you still do not feel comfortable self-administering the injections after training.

      Step 3 Treatment

      Tirzepatide is injected once a week, which you will perform yourself or at The Center for a $25 fee if you would prefer. Most patients will notice the results within 8-12 weeks of regular use. Some may even notice results as early as four weeks after beginning the medication. The effectiveness will depend on several factors, including your weight at the start of treatment, age, activity level and exercise, diet and overall health.

      To ensure the best possible results, eating a healthy diet and engaging in an active lifestyle is essential. Not only can healthier habits help you achieve your weight loss goals while on Tirzepatide, but they will also help you keep the weight off and enjoy long-term results.

        Tirzepatide Pricing

        There is a non-refundable $125 consultation fee due upon booking.

        First, we send registration paperwork to new patients, which includes a consent to prescribe Tirzepatide. Then patients need to return these forms prior to their actual appointment date. Next, at the consultation, the nurse practitioner or doctor will determine if you are a candidate for these drugs based on your health history, medical condition, and personal goals.

        Prescription Price

        A vial of Tirzepatide starts at $720. We require payment in full at time of order. Per law, prescriptions are non-refundable and non-returnable. Unfortunately, insurance does not cover Tirzepatide for weight loss, and The Center does not bill these drugs to insurance.

        How often do I need to take Tirzepatide?

        Self administered injections are done on a weekly basis. However, we can inject for you for a $25 injection fee with the medication from your prescriptive vial of Tirzepatide. We recommend doing this the same day of each week to stay consistent.

        How do I store Tirzepatide injections?

        Injections should be stored in a refrigerator between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit. They should not be frozen or stored in direct sunlight or high heat.

        How do I inject Tirzepatide?

        A traditional syringe injection of Tirzepatide require drawing medication up from a vial. Patients disinfect skin with alcohol and the top of the vial prior to injecting.  Recommended in the stomach area, pinch the skin lightly, then, carefully placing the needle underneath the skin, patients then push down the syringe and pull it out.

        • Set a schedule and perform the weekly injections on the same day of the week at roughly the same time.
        • Inject two inches from the belly button on either side when injecting into the stomach. This area tends to hold more fat and be a less painful place to inject into the stomach.
        • Know that there is little pain overall when it comes to subcutaneous injections. These injections reach just below the skin and require a tiny needle in comparison to other injections you may have received. This is why certain injection sites are preferred and easier to inject into.
        • Rotating the injection site every week prevents skin irritation. This is especially important for patients who may have certain skin conditions. While patients are unlikely to experience major swelling following their injections, injecting  weight loss medication into the same place week after week would become painful, uncomfortable, and more likely to be injected.
        How much weight can I lose?
        Every patient is unique, but most patients taking Tirzepatide lose approximately 15% of their body weight, but some patients have lost considerably more. Healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds a week.
        Should I change my diet while on Tirzepatide?
