Lipo (MIC) Injection

Conveniently located to serve San Jose, Los Gatos, Campbell and Saratoga

Lipotropic injections are used to help release fat deposits in some parts of the body. Some of these areas include the stomach, inner thighs, neck, buttocks and hips. Lipotropic, or fat burning, substances include methionine which helps the liver remove fat; inositol, similar to methionine; choline, which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body. In some cases, a combination of these may be given. Cupertino Facial Esthetics is considered a top provider of weight management using lipotropic (MIC) injections in San Jose.

How Often Are Lipotropic (MIC) Injections Given?

Injections can be administered up to twice a week. The amino acids that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism. The injections are only effective temporarily. As soon as the effect of these substances wears out, the body starts returning to normal gradually.

Who Can Benefit from Lipotropic Injections?

Lipotropic (MIC) injections can be beneficial for individuals looking to jumpstart their weight-loss journey, boost their fat-burning efforts, and enhance their overall wellbeing. They are often used as a complement to a healthy diet and exercise regimen, aiding in the achievement of weight-loss goals.

However, it is essential to note that lipotropic (MIC) injections are not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. They work best when combined with a balanced diet, regular exercise, and other healthy habits.

The Consultation

During your lipotropic consultation, we will review your medical history, discuss your weight-management goals, and assess your suitability for treatment. Our experts will create a customized plan that maximizes the benefits of lipotropic MIC injections while ensuring your safety and wellbeing.

The Treatment Process

During lipotropic injection sessions, you can expect a straightforward and relatively painless procedure. The injection site—usually the upper arm, thigh, or buttocks—will be cleansed and sterilized to prevent any risk of infection. A fine needle will then be used to administer the lipotropic injection directly into the muscle tissue. The injection process is quick and generally well-tolerated by most individuals.

Each 1 ml lipotropic injection includes a combination of the following important vitamins that will help you burn fat and feel energetic all day:

  • Methionine – 25mg
  • Inositol – 50mg
  • Choline Chloride – 50mg

Medical Professionalism


Our medical spa is managed by the team at Cupertino Facial Esthetics. This means you’ll receive premium care using only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers, and all services are offered by our experienced team of medical providers.

At Cupertino, our approach to anti-aging starts with the foundation of your skin: Promoting collagen stimulation and allowing your body to regenerate its own natural collagen and elastin. We begin to lose collagen and elastin starting in our early 20’s. If we can work on restoring that naturally with treatments such as PROFOUNDRF, Potenza RF, Microneedling with PRP, or biostimulators, such as Sculptra Aesthetics, dermal fillers can then be used minimally—as we can create, shape, and sculpt a more naturally enhanced you.

This approach leaves you with longer-lasting results, and a more effective treatment.

Our consultation process starts with a complete analysis and assessment of your skin and your short-term and long-term goals. This leads us toward a custom treatment plan consisting of proper medical-grade skin care and the treatments that are right for you. *As a member of The Cakery Infusions, you can enjoy 10% off all Cupertino Facial Esthetics treatments and services!

Schedule your complimentary virtual or in-person consultation to get started on achieving a more refreshed and rejuvenated you.
