B12 and Lipo-B (Lipotropic) Injections
Omapure Omega-3 Supplement
Center for Medical Weight Loss
At CosMedic Skincare, we have found that the stresses of everyday life can take a toll on stamina, strength and overall well-being. To help our patients combat the fatigue that comes with day to day activities, we offer B12 and Lipo-B injections. Each injection has specific beneficial properties that can contribute to more overall sustainable energy, increased daily endurance, and even provide assistance in burning fat. The breakdown below will help you choose the injection that is suitable for your lifestyle. Please note that many of our patients benefit from both B12 and Lipo-B injections.
What are B12 and Lipo-B Injections?
Vitamin B12 has long been known to be the “energy vitamin”. It plays a vital role in the health of the nervous system and has been known to fight off the effects of senile dementia and can even prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Vitamin B12 injections are easily absorbed through the body as compared to oral supplements which are broken down in the digestion system resulting in reduced efficacy. It will boost energy, prevent fatigue, and speed up metabolism to help burn calories and stimulate the utilization of fats and carbohydrates in the body. It also promotes mental alertness and improves overall stamina for everyday activities.
Lipo-B is a multi-ingredient injection containing essential B vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It provides nutrients to your body which effectively promotes increased metabolism that will in-turn directly assist your body in burning fat. Many of the nutrients in the Lipo-B injection are not easily absorbed through the mouth and are therefore highly effective when received via injection. The amino acids play a major role in minimizing excess fat in the liver, increasing energy and lean muscle mass, neutralizing free radicals, as well as metabolizing fat and cholesterol to prevent hardening of the arteries.
Who can benefit?
Ideal for anyone with a busy lifestyle. Whether you are busy taking care of family, working long hours, balancing multiple jobs, or the demands of running your own business, B12 injections can help you stay bright, sharp, and focused. Not only do the injections provide more energy and maintain your vibrancy but they also help support functions of digestion and nutrient absorption.
Perfect for anyone who wants to supplement weight loss goals or simply stimulate metabolism. Lipo-B injections are perfect for burning fat when exercise alone has not been successful. Balanced with B12, minerals, and amino acids, Lipo-B injections provide a broad spectrum of benefits to help combat the stresses and pollutants of everyday life.
How often do I need treatment?
Available in single as well as double dose. A single dose injection will provide increased energy levels and added benefits to your daily performance for approximately 7-12 days. Some people may receive longer results in combination with proper nutrition. The double dose injection will provide the same benefits for a period of 2-3 weeks. These injections can be received twice a month.
Due to the mixture of minerals and amino acids, along with the supplement of B vitamins, this injection can last a couple of weeks and repeated treatments are encouraged. Injections can be administered up to twice a month.
What are potential side effects?
Generally safe with little to no side effects. The most common side effects are redness, bruising, and swelling at the injection site. Not intended for people with chronic kidney or liver disease, or if you have an allergy to cobalt. If you have any type of infection, please consult with a member of our medical staff prior to receiving your B12 injection. Certain medications can reduce the absorption of B12. Some patients sensitive to B12 experience a “wired” sensation which typically subsides in 8-12 hours. This is by no means a complete list of side effects. A complete list of side effects is available at your consultation. If you experience more severe side effects post injection, please consult our medical staff at once.

Since the body is not used to operating at this level, for some people, exhaustion can be a common initial side effect. This injection is not intended for individuals with chronic kidney or liver disease since the injection substantially adds work to the kidneys and/or liver. This is by no means a complete list of side effects. A complete list of side effects is available at your consultation.
