FAQ's

Below is a list of our most frequently asked questions. 

 

How does Skinny Clinic pen work?

Your body naturally produces a glucagon-like peptide which helps to regulate appetite. Skinny Clinic pen acts by synthetically mimicking this peptide, and as your appetite decreases and you are in control of your portion sizes, you will quickly start to lose weight.

Is it painful?

No! In fact most of our patients report that they can’t even feel the pen when they use it.

 

How to use the pen

Use a disinfectant swab to gently wipe the area. Use the advised dose by injecting the pen into a fleshy part of the abdomen, thigh or upper arm.

 

Is it suitable for everyone?

Skinny Clinic pen is suitable for men and women over the age of 18 but is contraindicated in the following cases:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • If you are diabetic type 1, are being treated for diabetes with Victoza, or any other GLP-1 receptor agonists
  • If you have ever suffered with pancreatitis
  • Existing or previous thyroid tumours

Usually you have to have an "unhealthy" BMI which is over 25 or have weight related health issues. The Skinny Pen is to help you get back into the "healthy" weight range with a BMI between 18 and 25/

What are the side effects?

Most medicines have the potential for side effects but this is very well tolerated by most people if used as directed. Nausea and headaches are the most common side effects initially but will generally decrease over time. We offer 24/7 medical support if you require any advice or reassurance.
