What's the skinny on Skinny Shots?


Skinny Shots. Lipo-B12 Shots. Mic Injections. Lipotropic Injections.

There are many different names for one weight loss injection but don’t let that confuse you, they’re all the same thing.


As summer approaches, the focus on getting swimsuit ready is becoming more and more intense. You may be investing extra resources into your fitness and eating to achieve your ideal swimsuit body or you may be confident and comfortable already and just ready for the weather to warm up. If you’re the latter, we applaud you (and admittedly, we’re a little jealous!)


Regardless of where you are on the spectrum of swimsuit body readiness, skinny shots are an easy way to burn off fat and lose weight.


What’s a Skinny Shot?

Skinny shots, also known as Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) injections, are a combination of vitamins, amino acids and lipotropic agents. They are designed to jumpstart the body’s metabolism to promote weight loss. Specifically, MIC injections improve the liver’s ability to absorb and remove fat from the body. They also boost energy and promote hormone balance.


What are the benefits?

How quickly or slowly you lose weight depends on your metabolism. Metabolism is the process by which food is converted into energy on the body. If you have a high metabolism, you will burn calories faster. The opposite is also true, and if your metabolism is slow, you will burn less and store more fat. Lipotropic MIC injections can contribute significantly to shifting this balance and ensuring that your body burns fat faster.


If you have been losing weight steadily but have suddenly hit a plateau, skinny shots can help you cross this barrier to losing weight more efficiently.


Other specific benefits include:

  • Increases metabolism through speeding up the breakdown and removal of fatty deposits in your body

  • Less accumulation and storage of fat in the body

  • Better expulsion of fat by the liver

  • Boosts focus and energy

  • Improved mental clarity and better moods

How do they work?

Lipotropic B12 injections work by improving the body’s metabolism and encouraging fat elimination. When injected into the body, these amino acids stimulate the liver to function more efficiently.


The liver is responsible for producing bile, which breaks down and absorbs fat. Because it performs numerous other crucial functions such as detoxification, the liver can often be overworked, accumulating toxins. This slows down the breakdown and removal of fat, resulting in weight gain, especially around the belly. Skinny Shots contains nutrients that the liver needs to process and eliminate excess fat.


When you get a Skinny Shot, your body’s metabolic rate increases for some time before returning to normal functioning. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, this can be a powerful way to jumpstart your fat loss journey.


How are they administered?

It’s an injection that can be performed by one of our staff members or you can take them home and you or someone you trust to be kind and gentle 😊, can administer it. MIC injections can be administered in the hip, thigh, buttocks, or upper arm based on your preferences. They are relatively pain free and typically hurt less in the upper thigh or buttocks.


How often can I get them?

Most patients start with two shots a week and gradually move to a weekly routine. Because these injections are natural, you don’t have to worry about extended use. Getting regular injections also means that your metabolism stays high, turning your body into a fat-burning machine.


To get the most benefits, we advise that you combine your weekly lipotropic injections with a sensible diet and regular exercise.


How long until I see results?

The most important question of all. Like anything, it takes time. You will begin to see the benefits of increased energy and mood almost instantly but the benefits of increased metabolism and fat burning typically peak around 30 days if you are administering them regularly.


Right now, we have a special running where you can get 4 shots for $99. This is a great way to test them out and see the benefits for yourself.
