FDA Approved Injection Weight Loss Management 

Introducing Mounjaro® (tirzepatide) Injection Weight Loss Management

We are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking addition to our services at Epi Center MedSpa: Injection Weight Loss Management.

With the recent FDA approval (November 2023) of a remarkable drug called Mounjaro, produced by pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, we can now offer you a highly effective solution to support your weight loss journey. Several studies have shown that Mounjaro is more effective than Ozempic for blood sugar control and weight loss. In the SURPASS-2 trial, tirzepatide was superior to semaglutide with a more significant reduction in A1C levels.

The well-being and safety of our patients is our top priority, which is why we have eagerly awaited the FDA’s approval of Mounjaro for weight loss. We understand the risks involved in purchasing unauthorized and generically compounded medications online and want to inform our patients about these dangers.


At Epi Center MedSpa, we are committed to providing you with the highest standard of care and maintaining the integrity of our treatments. Trust in us to deliver safe, effective, and FDA-approved weight loss management therapy. If you are interested in exploring this innovative weight loss solution or have any questions, please contact our team at 415-362-4754.

How do I know if I have type 2 Diabetes or am prediabetic?

If two separate Hemoglobin A1C Test tests find that 5.7 percent of your hemoglobin is glycated, or coated with sugar, you have prediabetes. If 6.5 percent or more of your hemoglobin is glycated, you have type 2 diabetes.

Will insurance pay for this medication?

Yes, some insurance companies may cover your prescription for Mounjaro, but this will vary based on your insurance plan and drug benefits. Your insurance company may cover Mounjaro for type 2 diabetes, but may not cover Mounjaro for weight loss.

What kind of results will I see?

Patients have reported a weight loss of 2-3 lbs a week and/or 8 – 10 lbs a month for as long as you’re on the medication.  Going off the medication may require a weaning off process of several months.  Patients with a BMI less than 30 that want to lose 25 – 45 lbs. have experienced less difficulty in keeping the weight off once off the medication compared to patients with a BME level above 30.

How quickly do I see the results?

If most patients following the Mounjaro weight loss program typically lose 2-3 lbs per week, you can expect to see noticeable results within the first few weeks of starting the program. Individual results may vary based on factors such as starting weight, metabolism, adherence to the program, and overall health.

Seeing consistent weight loss of 2-3 lbs per week is considered a healthy rate of weight loss, as rapid weight loss can be unsustainable and potentially harmful. It’s important to focus on making gradual and sustainable changes to achieve long-term success in weight management.

For personalized guidance on your weight loss journey with Mounjaro and to track your progress effectively, it’s recommended to follow the program as prescribed by our medical director.

How long do the results last?

The duration for which results last from a weight loss program like Mounjaro can vary depending on how well the individual maintains a healthy diet and exercise program.

If a patient continues to follow a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise routine, they are more likely to sustain their weight loss results over the long term. Consistency in healthy habits is key to maintaining weight loss success.

It’s important to view weight loss as a long-term commitment to overall health and well-being. By making sustainable lifestyle changes and incorporating healthy habits into daily life, individuals can increase the likelihood of maintaining their weight loss results for an extended period. Regular monitoring, support, and adjustments to the plan as needed can also help in sustaining results over time.


What is the downtime?

If there is no downtime associated with the Mounjaro weight loss program, it means that individuals can continue with their daily activities without significant interruptions or restrictions. However, it’s mentioned that individuals may feel tired initially due to eating significantly less food than they are used to.

Feeling tired or fatigued when reducing caloric intake is a common experience as the body adjusts to changes in dietary habits. It’s important to listen to your body, ensure you are getting adequate nutrition, stay hydrated, and consider incorporating healthy foods to provide sustained energy levels throughout the day.

While there may be initial challenges as the body adapts to a new eating pattern, staying consistent with the program and focusing on overall well-being can help individuals navigate any temporary feelings of tiredness and continue on their weight loss journey effectively.

Is it safe?

The FDA approved Mounjaro for weight loss in November 2023,  and that indicates that the program has met certain safety and efficacy standards set by the regulatory authority. However, it is important to note that even FDA-approved programs may have potential risks or side effects, and individual results can vary.

Given this information, it is emphasized that the use of Mounjaro for weight loss should only be undertaken under the strict supervision of a medical practice. Regular monthly visits and check-ins are required as part of the Epi Center MedSpa program to ensure that individuals are progressing safely and effectively towards their weight loss goals.

By following the program guidelines, attending regular check-ins, and working closely with medical professionals, individuals can better manage any potential risks and optimize the safety and effectiveness of their weight loss journey with Mounjaro.
