What Are Lipotropics?
Lipotropic compounds are a combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that help metabolize fat in the body. Combined with diet and exercise, lipotropic injections can speed up the process of fat breakdown and enhance your weight loss results.
Lipotropics boost your body’s metabolism and your energy level so you can work out for longer and harder. The injections will help the body target fat deposits, especially in the liver. A lipotropic injection is made up of various nutrients and vitamins that when combined, can enhance liver function, jumpstart the body’s metabolic processes, and target that hard-to-lose fat while promoting lean muscle development and even a better mood and shinier hair.
A majority of lipotropic injections combine three lipotropes that are referred to as “MIC,” a term referencing methionine, inositol, and choline.
The combination of these three ingredients will support the body’s removal of toxins and fat and can boost energy levels and metabolism.
The SKINNY SHOTS at Camas Medspa
Our SKINNY SHOTS contains Lipotropic MIC (see above). Some lipotropic injections contain other B vitamins as well (such as our Super B Skinny Shot) to aid in weight loss – your injector or the Doctor can discuss which works best for you when beginning your treatment plan.
If you have tried everything to lose weight or want to maintain the weight you are at, lipo injections are a great weight loss supplement that is cost-effective and minimally invasive. Lipotropic injections, although most commonly used for weight loss purposes, have several positive health benefits other than burning fat. Those who are trying to speed up their metabolism or supplement the nutrients and minerals they are deficient in may also benefit from utilizing lipo injections.
How often you you will need an injection and how long your SKINNY SHOTS will take to work
Lipo injections are not a one-time solution and most users have to get the injections regularly; however it is different for everyone depending upon your needs.
If the supplemental injections are being used for weight loss purposes, it is most commonly recommended that one take weekly lipotropic injections, as the boosting effects in your body will only last for about a week. However, some clients get them twice a week while others get injected biweekly, monthly or even every couple of months.
Getting the most out of your SKINNY SHOTS
Lipo shots will have the best results when combined with a low-calorie diet and a consistent exercise routine. They are not a replacement for working out, and it is important to remain realistic about your weight loss journey, as lipo injections will not be an easy fix-all solution. The SKINNY SHOT and the SUPER B SKINNY SHOT can be used alone and may even have fat loss results when used alone, but this is not recommended as it is meant to aid or supplement a weight loss regimen.
