Lipotropic injections are fat-burning substances that increase metabolism and, with the help of the liver, dissolve excess fat within the body. This method is used for specific body areas, such as the stomach, inner thighs, hips and buttocks.

Lipotropic therapy is a good alternative to spot reduction surgery. The injections contain important B vitamins, such as B1 and B12, as well as essential amino oils like choline. Aside from weight loss or spot reduction, lipotropic injections help detoxify the body, leading to increased energy levels and enhanced mood. Health risks associated with lipotropic use include increased heart rate, nausea, vomiting, irritable bowels and diarrhea.
