Saxenda® is a prescription injectable medicine that helps adults with excess weight (body mass index [BMI] ≥27), who also have weight-related medical problems or obesity (BMI ≥30), lose weight and keep it off. Saxenda® ® should be used with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.
The main benefit of Saxenda® is that it helps adults to lose weight and keep it off. Accompanied with a low-calorie diet and increased physical activity participants in a medical study over a period of 52 weeks were able to lose 2.5 times more than participants given a placebo.
Currently Saxenda® needs to be administered as an injection under the skin in the stomach area, upper leg or upper arm, as per the instructions of your health care professional once daily.
Using needle free injection this process becomes both painless and effortless, as well opening up Saxenda® to people with fear of needles. It performs the same as an injection without the hassle of pain and needle marks.
It has a very small exit orifice of 0.15mm. This high-velocity jet injection is strong enough to penetrate the skin in less than one-third of a second and fast enough to administer the medication safely and virtually pain-free.
