What Are B12 Injections?

A lack of energy can manifest for a number of reasons. But that feeling that something’s wrong doesn’t have to be a permanent reality. Injections of vitamin B12, a key supplement in performing many of the body’s normal functions, can help you regain better vitality, energy, clearer thinking, and a range of other benefits. The B12 vitamin is mainly known for boosting your metabolism, helping your mental functions, and maintaining a healthy blood flow.

If you have a B12 deficiency, you can experience symptoms such as changes in mood, poor heart function, reduced fertility, and other negative effects. B12 Injections deliver the necessary nutrients directly into the body to produce quick, significant results. B12 injection benefits include the following:

  • Increased energy
  • Improved mood
  • Improved weight loss
  • Improved focus
  • Reduced pain and inflammation

Are B12 Injections Right for Me?

Anyone looking to make a healthy change for themselves is a good candidate for B12 injections. This treatment can improve skin quality, reduce the effects of a hangover, sharpen mental acuity, strengthen the nails and hair, and more. Vegetarians or vegans who may not get enough vitamin B12 from their diet can benefit from B12 injections. Patients with the following health concerns are also ideal candidates for B12 injections, such as:

  • Older adults who may have difficulty absorbing vitamin B12 from food
  • Individuals with gastrointestinal disorders that can interfere with the body's ability to absorb vitamin B12 from food
  • Individuals who have had gastrointestinal surgery that may have affected their ability to absorb vitamin B12 from food
  • Individuals with pernicious anemia, a condition in which the body is unable to absorb vitamin
  • B12 from food due to a lack of a specific protein in the stomach

Your Consultation at Concierge Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery

To learn more about the B12 injection process, we recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation at one of our five Chicago-area offices. We also offer virtual consultations for your convenience.

We may also order blood tests to check your B12 levels.

We want you to feel informed and confident and are here to make sure all of your questions are answered. If you want to regain a lost sense of vigor and energy, contact us today to take the first step.

The B12 Injection Process

Your B12 injection treatment will depend on your treatment goals. Our lipotropin B12 injections—which are B12 injection weight loss treatments—may be administered to different areas and, therefore, include extra treatment steps. Typically, injections are performed in the hip region. We can apply a topical anesthetic beforehand to minimize discomfort, although this is rarely necessary.

The Recovery Period

There is no downtime or recovery period required after the B12 injection treatment. You will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following treatment.

Steady, Lasting Change

B12 enters the bloodstream immediately after injection, so you may notice benefits from treatment within a few days. However, most patients begin to notice results from their B12 injections a few weeks after treatment. To maintain these results, patients will need to receive additional treatments regularly.
