The Skinny Jab
Weight loss is often an uphill battle, where many find the summit insurmountable.
From the hours spent slogging it out in the gym and the various transitions from Keto diets to intermittent fasting, are you happy with the progress you’re making… or do you want to do better?
If you do, the Skinny Jab using Saxenda® is here for you. Coming in the form of a unique pen containing FDA-approved injectable medicine, the Skinny Jab is the answer to weight loss.
Our body produces a hormone known as glucagon-like-peptide (GLP-1) that helps to regulate your hunger. What the Skinny Jab does is mimic this natural hormone, effectively doubling your body’s ability to regulate hunger, leading to lower calorie consumption and accelerated weight loss.
Like an adrenaline gun administering a shot of adrenaline, the Skinny Jab gives you the same kind of rush you need to fast track yourself towards your weight loss goals.

Where on my body do I inject?
Inject your dose under the skin (this is called a subcutaneous injection) in your stomach area (abdomen), upper leg (thigh), or upper arm as instructed by our doctors and nurses at SW1. Do not inject into a vein or muscle. Our SW1 team will teach you how to inject Saxenda® in a safe and painless manner.
What is the dosing schedule?
Follow the dosing schedule below. If you experience any gastrointestinal side effects, you should stop and contact SW1 immediately.
What time should Saxenda® be dosed?
Saxenda® can be taken at any time, independent of meals. Once on Saxenda®, if you find a time that is convenient for you, try to take Saxenda® at that SAME time every day.
Will I have to watch what I eat and increase my physical activity?
Follow a low-calorie meal plan of less than 1500 calories a day. Reduce your intake of processed carbohydrates such as rice, sugar and bread. You need to do a minimal of 120 minutes of mild to moderate exercise each week such as walking, stationery cycling or jogging.
To help you track your calories and physical activity, you could download My Fitness App available on Apple store and Google Play Store.
How is Saxenda® stored?
Store new, unused Saxenda® pens in the refrigerator between 2°C to 8°C. After first use, store in a refrigerator or at room temperature between 15°C to 30°C. Pens in use should be thrown away after 30 days even if they still have Saxenda® left in them. Don’t freeze Saxenda®. Saxenda® that has been frozen must not be used. If in doubt, please feel free to contact our Beauty Sages.
If this is a treatment for you, do make an appointment for a consultation with any of our doctors at SW1.
