Intramuscular Injections Q & A

What are intramuscular injections?

Intramuscular injections are a method of getting the nutrients and medications you need into your system quickly. Your muscles are full of blood and can absorb the contents of your injections very effectively. 

Because the contents of your intramuscular injections go straight into your bloodstream, they bypass your gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Even though your GI tract absorbs many nutrients from the foods you eat, it can’t absorb them fully and important nutrients often escape. 

This isn’t the case with intramuscular injections, which allow for near full absorption.

What can I include in my intramuscular injections?

At Skin Shop medSpa, Dr. Su offers several high-end blends of nutrients that your body needs to function at its very best. She discusses your needs and goals with you in order to guide you to the best option. Your choices include:

B-12 shots

Vitamin B-12 is one of many nutrients that your body relies on to perform optimally. If you don’t have enough of this vitamin, you might experience fatigue, concentration problems, headaches, vision decline, and other complications. B-12 intramuscular injections can boost your energy and improve your mental clarity, among other benefits. 


Glutathione is a prominent antioxidant in your body that prevents damage from free radicals, or uncharged molecules, which contribute to aging. A glutathione intramuscular injection can improve the health and appearance of your skin naturally.

LipoStat Plus

LipoStat Plus intramuscular injections include a blend of methionine, inositol, choline, vitamin B-6, and other nutrients to speed your metabolism and help with weight loss. 

What should I expect while getting intramuscular injections?

At the beginning of your appointment, you’ll discuss your medical history, preferences, and needs with Dr. Su. She helps you decide if intramuscular injections can benefit you and which formula to use in your treatment. 

The procedure itself is very quick. Dr. Su selects a muscle for your injections, which may be in your arm or leg. She carefully inserts the needle of the syringe into your muscle without going deep enough to reach large blood vessels or nerves. 

Dr. Su may monitor you for a brief time before you leave the office after your injection. This is to ensure that you don’t experience any unusual reaction from your injections so you can leave the office with confidence. You’ll notice the effects of your injection very shortly after the injection takes place.
