Get the Body You Want

Are you ready to get the body of your dreams? BEAUTY by BUFORD offers Slim Shot, a weight loss injection program to supplement your regular fitness regimen and help transform your body.

All About Slim Shot

Slim Shot, or compounded semaglutide, is a weight loss supplement that mimics your body’s natural hormone production to decrease your appetite and make you feel fuller after eating. Because of these effects on your appetite, this revolutionary program can help you reach your body goals with more success, efficiency, and confidence.

How We Can Help You Get Your Beach Body

How It Works

The injection imitates naturally occurring glucagon-like peptide one receptors (GLP-1) in your small intestine.

When stimulated, GLP-1 receptors signal your body to produce more insulin, slow digestion, and hit satiation receptors that give your brain that full and satisfied feeling for a short period following a meal.

What to Expect
With Slim Shot

Here at BEAUTY by BUFORD, you’ll get personalized treatment plans and one-on-one attention to ensure you feel comfortable and confident as we work together for the body you want.

From the consultation to the final shot, here is a breakdown of your Slim Shot treatment program:


The first step in your body transformation is a 30-minute consultation at our Lone Tree office. During this appointment, we’ll discuss your medical history, target weight, and goals for treatment to determine if you’re a good candidate for Slim Shot.

Be sure to bring lab work completed within the last six months to your Slim Shot consultation, including but not limited to:

  • Pregnancy Test (if not on birth control)
  • CBC
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
  • TSH

The use of this medication requires continuous monitoring, so our office will assess your lab results and order additional labs as needed throughout treatment. Just like beginning any new medication, we recommend notifying your Primary Care Doctor of your plans for treatment before beginning Slim Shot at BEAUTY by BUFORD.

Your First Shot

After determining that you are a good fit for the Slim Shot program, we’ll schedule your next appointment. You’ll get your first injection from a professional in our office to show you how to administer the shot.

We gradually introduce Slim Shot to your system to help reduce the temporary gastric side effects of semaglutide. However, you may experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. It is important to remember that as your body adjusts to the drug, these side effects will fade away.

At Home Injections

During your first appointment, we’ll train you to give yourself the shot, answer your questions, and provide you with your take-home Slim Shot Kit. This kit contains everything you’ll need for at-home injections, including a one-month supply of semaglutide with four pre-filled syringes and a step-by-step guide.

After you feel comfortable administering your Slim Shot injections, you’ll use one shot once a week and meet with our team once a month for check-in appointments. Over five months, we’ll gradually increase your dose to help you get the most out of your Slim Shot treatment while limiting overall side effects.

Combine With Other Treatments

We recommend combining Slim Shot with one of our other slimming procedures, like EON body contouring or Renuvion skin tightening, for optimal results. Significant weight loss can often result in localized areas of skin laxity as the fat melts away.

These non-surgical procedures can add definition and tone to your body to round out the effects of your Slim Shot treatments. During your initial consultation, we’ll help you decide the best course of action for your body goals.

In addition, as you lose weight your face and body will experience predictable changes related to the weight loss and changes to your skin. Since we know what changes will actually occur, our team will discuss a number of potential treatments to help keep you looking your very best throughout your journey here and beyond. This is one of the biggest differences between our clinic and others. Most other clinics will simply help you trim down your waist but that’s it. We take the extra step and help guide you through this process to keep you looking your very best whether you lose 10 pounds, 20 pounds, or 80 pounds. You still want to look great and we will help you do that.

Your Last Shots

Once you decide you’re ready to stop taking Semaglutide, we’ll taper your dose over a few weeks. It’s important to remember that without proper diet and exercise, you could regain some of the weight you lost with Slim Shot, so sticking to a routine is essential.

Maintaining Your Care

At BEAUTY by BUFORD, your care doesn’t stop after your last injection. Dr. Buford and our team will guide you through your journey and help you adjust to the changes you achieve with Slim Shot.
