- Lipotropic Injections
- What To Expect
- Weekly Lipotropic Shots
A lipotropic injection is a shot that contains a combination of nutrients that enhance liver function and speed up the breakdown and removal of fat from your body. The exact formula of each lipotropic injection varies, but they all contain one or more fat-burning compounds, such as:
- Chromium picolinate
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
Lipotropic injections help to maximize the impacts of a healthy diet and exercise routine by optimizing your body’s ability to burn fat. Weight loss is not the only health benefit of lipotropic injections, though. They can also help lower cholesterol, prevent liver damage, balance hormones, boost the immune system, increase energy levels, and improve overall wellness.
When you come in for your first consultation at Le Lux Beautique, we will take the time to discuss your health and wellness goals and to determine if Lipotropic B12 injections are right for you.
Lipotropic injections are sent into the body through a needle, and following the injection, it is possible to experience some pain and tenderness at the point of injection. Like any injection, there is some discomfort during the injection but it is minimal. The pain tends to go away quite quickly, however, if you are experiencing long lasting swelling, pain, and redness at the injection spot after a few days, contact Le Lux Beautique.
Although everyone is different, as a general rule, we recommend coming in for weekly lipotropic shots. However, injections can be once a month, once a week, twice a week and will be determined by the practitioner. Injections may be administered in your thigh, hip, upper arm, or buttocks to replenish the nutrients that optimize your liver’s fat-burning functions.
Prior to starting treatment, inform your practitioner if you are pregnant, lactating or have any of the following conditions:
- Leber’s Disease
