You know you could stand to lose weight, but can’t seem to get the ball rolling. From a lack of motivation to low energy levels, many factors can make weight control challenging. If you relate all too well, you may want to consider LipoStat Plus — injections designed to enhance your weight loss efforts.
At Skin Shop medSpa in Houston, Texas, Dr. Tiffany Su and her team are dedicated to helping people transform their lives through concierge aesthetic medicine and wellness support. As part of that, we offer intramuscular injections, including LipoStat Plus. Read on to learn more about this treatment, including how it works and whether it might be a smart choice for you.
Why weight loss is difficult
If weight loss were easy, over 70% of Americans probably wouldn’t carry excess pounds. Many people attempt weight loss, often repeatedly, only to end up regaining any lost weight or gaining even more. A range of factors can make weight loss challenging, such as:
- Long-held, difficult-to-change habits
- A lack of access to healthy food
- Poor role modeling of healthy habits
- Underlying conditions, such as thyroid disease or depression
- Emotional factors, such as stress
- A lack of motivation or awareness of what works
Weight loss can also feel like a part, or even full-time, job. That’s one reason people find supplemental support, like LipoStat, helpful. If you can get the process going, you may feel more motivated to carry on. And if you’re lacking a nutrient that LipoStat provides, restoring normal levels may also help pave the way to lasting weight control by reducing related issues like fatigue.
How LipoStat Plus works
LipoStat Plus is a series of injections that provides methionine, inositol, and choline, essential amino acids that help your body break down and process fat. These compounds increase the flow of bile and fat from your liver and gallbladder. LipoStat Plus also contains vitamins B6 and B12, which play important roles in your energy and metabolism.
When paired with a healthy lifestyle plan, these injections are meant to help you lose weight. And unlike other weight loss supplements, LipoStat Plus injections do not contain risky stimulants that can damage your heart.
Six injections are generally recommended at first, given twice for three weeks. If you’re approved for LipoStat Plus, Dr. Su will recommend a customized treatment plan based on your goals, current weight, and overall health.
Good candidates for LipoStat Plus
If you’re in generally good health and carry excess weight, you may be a good candidate for LipoStat Plus. Before starting the injections, seek approval from your doctor to ensure your safety, especially if you have a chronic health condition.
Good candidates are also willing and able to follow a healthy weight management plan involving a nutritious, balanced diet, sufficient exercise, and positive sleep habits. While LipoStat isn’t a “magic pill” (or injection), you may find it helpful in jumpstarting your weight loss.
