If you’ve struggled with your weight, you’ve probably felt at least a little envious of people with fast metabolisms. Their body’s chemical processes naturally convert food into energy quickly, burning more calories and making them less likely to accumulate fat.
Every person has their own unique metabolic rate. And you can do certain things to increase yours, such as build more muscle mass and exercise more frequently. But, even then, metabolic adjustments take time and the resulting weight loss can take time.
Here at Stellar Skin and Laser in Tempe, Arizona, our providers want to help you reach your body goals quickly and healthily. That’s why we offer specific injectables as part of our weight loss program. With B-12 and lipo shots, we can help you boost your metabolism to kickstart your weight loss journey.
What’s in a B-12 and lipo shot
Injections to help you lose weight are still relatively new, but many weight loss experts believe these shots can complement a good medical weight loss program. Here at Stellar Skin and Laser, we offer two types of injections to help you see even better results when you’re following our personalized nutrition counseling, meal plans, and exercise routines:
As the name suggests, these shots contain vitamin B-12, or cobalamin. This essential vitamin plays a key role in the functioning of your brain, blood vessels, and more. It also helps your metabolism and energy levels.
Researchers have linked low levels of B-12 to weight gain and fat accumulation. To ensure that a B-12 deficiency isn’t preventing you from losing weight as quickly as possible, we offer supplemental doses of this important vitamin in a quick, easy injection.
Lipotropic injections — lipo shots, for short — are specifically formulated to help your body break down fat. To give you the best results, our lipo shots contain vitamin B-12 along with other ingredients that can help boost your metabolism.
Our shots also include phentermine, which helps to suppress your appetite, making it easier to stick to your meal plan.
Injectables as part of a weight loss program
To help you see the best weight loss results as quickly and safely as possible, we integrate our metabolism-boosting B-12 and lipo shots into our medical weight loss plans. These shots work best when they’re part of other changes to help you drop pounds, including a healthy diet and regular physical activity.
