Most of us understand the importance of maintaining a healthy weight. There is a range of weights that are considered healthy and appropriate for each of us depending upon our height and sex. If we are too high above that range, it can lead to a host of health problems. The idea of a weight loss diet is to help you safely achieve that healthy weight. Here at Esslinger Medical & Aesthetics, we offer weight loss programs to help you reach a healthy body weight as stay there.


How Do Weight Loss Programs Work?

We are the safest and most thorough semaglutide-based weight loss center in northwest Georgia. Our Weight Loss Journey is directly overseen by Dr. Esslinger, a board-certified Internal Medicine specialist with years of experience prescribing GLP-1 agonist medications like semaglutide. We combine this with a unique amino acid/B12/L-carnitine injection that is proven to stimulate fat burning, increase muscle building, and boost your metabolism.

No other program in the area offers the same combination of services, combined with the direct on-site oversight of a board-certified Internist! Our Weight Loss Program features weekly visits and injections (as prescribed) as well as body composition measurements every 4-6 weeks to track fat loss, muscle gain, and metabolic rate in addition to weight! 

What Does the Program Include?

  • (1) Lab Testing
  • (1) 30-minute consultation with Dr. Esslinger about exercise and nutrition
  • (16) Weekly Semaglutide Amino Acid/Vitamin Injections
  • Monthly body composition measurements that determine muscle mass, percent body fat, and metabolic rate
  • 16 weeks of injections of semaglutide, along with a specialized injection combination of amino acids and vitamins
  • Email access to Dr. Esslinger for general questions


Semaglutide is an FDA-approved drug that mimics a health-promoting, naturally occurring peptide in the body (GLP-1). Studies have shown it reduces appetite, improves control of eating, and reduces food cravings, in addition to improving blood sugar control. It works best with personalized lifestyle changes.

What Are the Benefits of Weight Loss?
