Lipotropic Shots Q&A

What are lipotropic shots?w

Lipotropic shots are a type of supplement used to encourage fat loss. Lipotropic shots won’t help you shed pounds on their own. 

However, if they’re combined with other lifestyle changes such as regular exercise and eating a low-calorie diet, you can lose weight and keep it off once and for all. 

Dr. Bretal offers lipotropic shots that contain vitamin B12. Clinical research shows that vitamin B12 is safe and may promote weight loss. If you’re interested in seeing if you’re a candidate for lipotropic shots, make an appointment at Weston Medical Health & Wellness.

What types of vitamins do lipotropic shots contain?

There are many types of lipotropic shots available, but they all contain vitamins, supplements, and nutrients. Some of the most common ingredients that aid in weight loss include:

  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Phentermine

The lipotropic shot is intramuscular and could be applied on the arm or buttocks but disregard the rest of places like abdomen, thigh and also subcutaneous fatty tissue as that is not accurate.

How often do I need lipotropic shots?

If Dr. Bretal recommends lipotropic shots as part of your guided weight loss program, you’ll receive injections weekly. Depending on your health history and goals for treatment, Dr. Bretal might recommend two injections per week to increase your metabolism and burn more fat. 

Do lipotropic shots present side-effects?

Lipotropic shots are safe and well-tolerated. However, like any type of injection, there are inherent risks. For example, in the hours or days following your lipotropic shots, you might experience swelling or bruising at the injection site. 

There are other options that the doctor could recommend.

Are lipotropic shots right for me?

To determine if lipotropic shots are right for you, make an appointment at Weston Medical Health & Wellness. Following a review of your medical history and physical exam, Dr. Bretal can formulate a safe and effective medically-guided weight loss treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
