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.
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.
If you would like more information on MIC Injections, please contact The Center for Internal and Integrative Medicine to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fatakhov.
