Skinny Shot

Person pinching fat

At our Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center locations in Noblesville, IN, Shelbyville, IN, Danville, IL, Healdsburg, CA, and Ukiah, CA, we offer a semaglutide injection treatment plans that can help patients achieve their weight loss goals. Also known as the skinny shot, this injectable can work alongside a weight management plan to help you lose weight and keep it off long-term.

What Is the Skinny Shot?

The skinny shot is another term for a semaglutide injection. Semaglutide is a weight loss medication that was originally developed to treat Type 2 diabetes, and studies revealed that it also proved to be effective as an obesity treatment.

The skinny shot is a weight loss injectable medication that can help patients lose significant weight through a customized treatment plan. It also promotes improved blood sugar control by regulating blood sugar levels and stimulating the body’s ability to produce insulin.

What Are the Treatment Benefits?

Aside from accelerating weight loss, semaglutide injection treatment plans offer many benefits. The injectable is safe for those who want to lose minimal and significant weight, and it also compliments a weight management plan that includes regular exercise and a healthy diet.

Accelerated Weight Loss

Because of the way that semaglutide interacts with natural bodily processes, it accelerates weight loss. Results vary among patients regarding the total weight lost, and once we design your treatment plan at one of our NorCal area locations, we can give you more details about how much weight you can expect to lose based on your starting point and ultimate goals.

Reduced Appetite

Another one of the benefits of the skinny shot is that once administered, it begins working to help you lose weight and reduce your appetite. As a result of the treatment, you will feel fuller for longer, reducing the chance of you giving into emotional eating or cravings, which is a significant benefit when following a weight management treatment plan.

Reduced Risk of Obesity and Related Diseases

With obesity comes an increased risk of obesity-related medical conditions, including Type 2 diabetes, stroke, cancer, and heart disease, among others. When you take steps to lose the necessary amount of weight to reach optimal health, you simultaneously reduce the risk of obesity and the other health conditions that accompany it.

A Safe Treatment

When you begin a treatment plan with our skinny shot, you can rest assured that not only is it safe and FDA-approved to help you lose your desired amount of weight, but we will monitor your treatment progress throughout your weight loss journey with us. We will ensure that the treatment is helping you achieve your desired results and make adjustments if needed.

Safety is our top priority, so you can have confidence knowing that not only will this injectable help you achieve your results, but we will take the necessary steps to ensure that it does so safely.

How Does the Semaglutide Injection Treatment Process Work?

Semaglutide injections are administered weekly. The skinny shot is an injectable fitted with a fine, thin needle. During treatment, the needle is administered just below the skin’s surface into adipose tissue. The treatment itself takes seconds to complete. During your initial consultation, we will give you more details about how the injection process works based on your unique treatment plan. You can expect to notice the best results within three to six months of treatment.

Am I a Candidate?

If you have been trying to lose weight through traditional methods, like calorie restriction and exercise, but aren’t seeing results or aren’t achieving results as quickly as you’d like, you may be a good candidate for a semaglutide injection treatment plan. Since this injectable can accelerate weight loss and do so safely, it can help you achieve your healthy goal weight and maintain it long-term.

Our Other Weight Loss Solutions

Aside from this effective injectable treatment, we also offer other weight management options at our Northern California area locations to help patients reach their goals and live healthier lifestyles. Depending on your goals, you may qualify for one or more of our other weight management solutions to achieve your desired weight as quickly and safely as possible.

Lipotropic Injections

We offer lipotropic injections that contain a combination of methionine, inositol, and choline, all of which support liver function and, in doing so, accelerate fat metabolism. Injections can help the body better process fat by helping it utilize or excrete it from the system rather than storing it, which would ultimately work against your goals.

Nutritional Supplements

We also offer different pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements that we can administer after completing nutritional, genetic, and GI testing. Our supplements are designed to work in conjunction with your weight management plan as they will increase energy levels, help further suppress the appetite, and repair GI and cellular function while promoting optimal health.


Our coaching services provide the resources you need along your weight management journey. We will be with you every step of the process to provide support and encouragement and answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment plan, the skinny shot, and any other aspect of your weight loss program.

Schedule Your Consultation Today

Don’t wait any longer before taking the step to invest in your health, appearance, and confidence. We can design a treatment plan for you at one of our locations. The skinny shot may be what you need to accelerate your results to enjoy the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle at your goal weight and all the confidence-boosting benefits that it can bring.

Dr. Michele gave me a lower blepharoplasty and laser resurfacing in April 2022. My undereye bags were very large, and genetic and I always looked tired before. This weekend I met up with all my long distance family and friends for Thanksgiving, and everyone wants to know my secret. They ask if I’ve lost weight or have a new sleep schedule. Nope! My results are natural, beautiful and permanent. I highly recommend Dr. Michele’s skill and her nurses warm bedside manner made me feel super comfortable the whole time.

I have had Botox, fillers, and IPL laser. I’m 38 and was noticing that I often look tired, with under eye bags, a bit of smile lines, and slightly droopy eye brows. I noticed right away that the Botox did great with lifting up my brows. The fillers gave me some cheeks and disguised the under eye bags.. my laugh lines are much less noticeable. I still have 2 more sessions of the IPL laser but so far I’ve noticed much less redness and discoloration and look forward to the final result. I did feel like Dr. Zormier cared about making sure I was comfortable. I noticed that some of the reviews mentioned that she wasn’t sensitive to pain- that was not my experience at all. If I had any criticisms- I feel like there might be a bit more fillers than I would have liked in my cheeks.. this was my first experience getting work done so perhaps I didn’t communicate with DR. zormier as thoroughly as I should have. I didn’t know what to communicate so I pretty much let her do what she thought was best. Next time I have fillers, I will ask for about 25% less than what was injected. Also, for the fillers , Botox , and IPL laser, I spent $6000 . Very expensive . I’m hopeful that maintaining is much less than this .

I had a blepharoplasty done to excess skin that was bothersome and also co2 fractional laser done to face and neck. There is an amazing difference and at 4 weeks I’m feeling in awe at the difference. Dr. Zormeier did a beautiful job!
