How Do Lipo Shots Work?Lipo shots contain a high dose of antioxidants and amino acids such as methionine, inositol, choline, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and other vitamins and minerals that boost the body’s natural weight loss mechanisms. This is accomplished by reducing the amount of stored fat which is moderated by the liver and gallbladder. By streamlining your liver and gallbladder’s fat burning abilities, your metabolism noticeably increases by utilizing stored fats for fuel, and thus provides you with a boost of energy throughout the day.
Who is this for?
Lipotropic “Lipo” injections are ideal for patients that have an exercise routine but are stuck in a weight loss plateau. By adding weekly lipo shots to your existing weight loss regimen, you can break past it!
In addition to helping you lose weight, lipotropic injections can help you avoid health problems and disease related to fat and bile buildup that causes cirrhosis, liver failure and metabolic issues.

When should I make my next appointment?
Since we prefer to error on the “less-is-more” look of natural beauty, it’s best to schedule a touch-up appointment two weeks after your initial treatment. That way, we can get your dosage just right. Botox takes about 10 days to fully set in. Once everything looks optimal, then we will plan to treat you again in 3-5 months! Many patients prefer to maintain their look and come for treatments up to four times a year, while others just come twice a year and let their wrinkles rest in-between appointments.
