Why Lose Weight?
There are many reasons to lose weight, but we want to be clear that none of them are related to your value as a person or your beauty. Weight loss should be done to improve your health, lengthen your life, give you more energy, and prevent you from having restrictions on activities you enjoy. Extra weight can cause a myriad of health problems along with exacerbating other health issues not caused by the weight.
All weight-loss programs should be conducted under the supervision of a licensed physician. At Infinity Med-I-Spa, your health is of the utmost importance to us and your weight loss journey will be monitored by an actual physician.
What to Know Before Your Injection Visit
Many people want to know if there is anything special they should do before coming in for their injection. Some helpful tips are to be hydrated and relaxed. If you are worried the shot will be painful you can rest assured that most clients find the discomfort negligible.
Why an injection instead of an oral supplement? That’s a great question that we get asked often. Many people don’t absorb B12 as well when taken orally. Injections are generally more effective. The B12 injection is taken once per week.
The benefits of B12 injections can include increased energy levels, helping you maintain a healthy nervous system, aiding you in properly utilizing fats, carbohydrates & proteins, relieving irritability, and improving concentration, memory & balance. If these sound like areas you’d like to address then B12 may be a great choice for you.
The lipotropic injection contains a blend of B-vitamins and Lipotropics that assist your body in mobilizing stored fat to be burned off as energy. This injection can be taken up to twice each week.
Lipotropics are substances that prevent an abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver. They help keep cholesterol more soluble and lessen deposits in the blood vessels as well. The lipotropic injection contains the lipotropics Inositol, Choline & Methionine.
Inositol metabolizes fats and cholesterol, helps to lower cholesterol levels, and aids in transporting fat in the bloodstream, thus redistributing body fat. Choline aids in reducing liver fat and the detoxification of amines. Methionine is an amino acid that reduces fat and aids in lowering cholesterol levels. It acts as a catalyst for Choline & Inositol thus speeding up their functions.
The B-vitamins are a natural stress fighter. They also play a part in the release of energy into the body by metabolizing carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. The lipotropic injection contains the B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, and B-12 vitamins.
B-1 helps to maintain the normal function of the nervous system, muscles & heart. B-2 is required for red blood cell formation, antibody production, cellular respiration, and growth. It assists in the breakdown of fats and aids in the synthesis of cholesterol, red blood cells, and glycogen. It has even been found to be an effective treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome. B-3 helps to maintain normal functions of the digestive system, lower cholesterol levels, and reduce dizziness and ringing in the ears. It aids proper blood circulation, healthy skin, and the functioning of the central nervous system. It also helps to synthesize insulin and hormones. B-5 is the anti-stress vitamin due to its vital role in the formation of various adrenal hormones & steroids, & contributes to the production of important neurotransmitters in the brain. B-6 is essential for the utilization of proteins and fats, the production of red blood cells and antibodies, and the normal function of the nervous system. B-12 promotes normal growth and development of cells. It also aids in memory and learning.
These injections can be used alone or in conjunction with each other. They can also be used with appetite suppressants to help clients achieve the results they desire. You will need to see the physician a minimum of every 3 months while taking the injections.
You have the option to come into the office for your injections or to administer them yourself at home if you are comfortable doing so. Our staff will teach how to correctly administer the injection if you choose this option.
