Common Facts about Lipotropic Injections

Lipotropic Injection Procedure

Lipotropic injections often contain different ingredients to aid in losing weight. These include MIC (a mixture of methionine, inositol, and choline), phentermine, L-carnitine, BCAAs, vitamin B complex, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. Your doctor typically injects it in the arm, buttocks, abdomen, thigh, or other areas with many subcutaneous fatty tissues. The whole procedure does not take much time. Thus, you can easily go to the clinic during a break and come home after 1 or 2 hours.

Lipotropic injections are mainly administered in weight loss clinics and medical spas, along with an exercise and diet plan. Since the providers might not be a doctor, it is necessary to check the credentials before deciding to undergo this procedure. Some doctors might suggest single-ingredient shots as well, especially vitamin B12. However, they are only suitable for those with a deficiency of nutrients.[2]
