MIC Injections are subcutaneous injections that distribute fat burning substances into fatty deposits within the body. While the MIC Injections assist the release of fat throughout the body, they are combined with vitamin B-12 to help accelerate metabolism - you may have heard of this combination as Lipotropic Injections. By administering these injections Dr. Fatakhov at The Center for Internal and Integrative Medicine in Alpharetta, Georgia, is able to assist patient's overall weight loss in a safe and precise way.

  • Aids memory
  • Helps to maintain a healthy nervous system

Are MIC Injections painful?

When MIC Injections are administered correctly you may feel a slight pinch, a local warming under the skin or a small tightness in the general injection location. Dr. Eduard Fatakhov’s patients have reported feeling no considerable discomfort. As with any injection or procedure, if you have a low pain threshold and a high sensitivity to pain, you should discuss your concerns with Dr. Fatakhov. If needed, a topical or local numbing agent could be applied.

Are MIC Injections safe?

For most patients MIC Injections are safe. Most patients will experience no side effects other than the induced weight loss that the MIC Injections are created to achieve. There is the possibility of a small number of patients experiencing side effects such as upset stomach, urinary problems or feelings of depression. While these side effects are rare it is important to discuss any concerns that you might have with Dr. Fatakhov before the MIC Injections are administered.
