Wellness Injections in Dallas, TX
With each year that passes, you may find it more difficult to get the nutrients you need from your food and to ensure that your body is making the antioxidants necessary to keep you healthy.
Vitamin B12 and glutathione are particularly challenging to produce at optimal levels, and deficiencies can lead to immune system issues, sleeping disorders, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and even hair loss.
To help combat these deficiencies, Spa in the City offers vitamin B12 injections as well as Glutathione injections for people in and around Dallas, TX.
What Are Vitamin B12 Injections?
Vitamin B12 deficiency is common. The National Institutes of Health state that up to 20% of aging adults have a vitamin B12 deficiency.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that contains the trace element cobalt and plays a large role in the production of red blood cells, the production of DNA, and brain function.
A deficiency in vitamin B12 can cause:
- Lack of energy
- Muscle weakness
- Sore tongue
- Disturbed vision
- Memory problems
- Sleep problems
- Hair loss
- Compromised immune system
Although the liver can store vitamin B12 for a long time, people have a hard time absorbing it from the food they eat as they age. Vitamin B12 injections are highly effective at fighting the symptoms of deficiency.
Some risk factors that can affect your vitamin absorption levels include:
- High levels of alcohol consumption
- Celiac disease
- Crohn’s disease
- Pancreatic diseases
- Older age
- Gastrointestinal surgery
- Genetic absorption issues
Even for people who do not have a deficiency, Vitamin B12 injections can help boost energy levels, aid with weight loss, and improve mood.
Candidates for Vitamin B12 Injections
Most people who are struggling to absorb vitamin B12 are good candidates for the injections. People who follow vegetarian or vegan diets tend to have the biggest deficiencies, no matter their age.
If you have anemia, are elderly, have had gastric bypass surgery, or want to increase your energy levels, improve your sleep patterns, and get rid of “brain fog,” these wellness injections can be beneficial for you.
If you have a sensitivity to vitamin B12, kidney problems, low potassium levels, Leber’s disease, or folic acid or iron deficiencies, we do not recommend vitamin B12 injections.
What Are Glutathione Injections?
Another wellness injection we offer is glutathione. Your body naturally produces glutathione, an antioxidant that fights against the free radicals that can damage your skin. It also helps your body dispose of pollutants and toxins. With age, the amount of glutathione your body makes decreases.
Lowered levels of glutathione can lead to:
- Age spots
- Wrinkles and fine lines
Glutathione injections are more effective than taking oral supplements because they enter your bloodstream directly and don’t run the risk of stomach enzymes breaking them down before they have a chance to work.
Glutathione injections can help strengthen your immune system while also increasing energy levels and brightening your skin.
Candidates for Glutathione Injections
Anyone in good health who wants the benefits of this antioxidant can get these injections.
For people who take certain antipsychotic drugs, we recommend alternative treatments.
Preparing for Wellness Injections
Everything begins with a consultation. We will discuss your goals and get a full medical history to see if wellness injections are appropriate for you. Let us know about all of the medications you take, especially antipsychotics. H2 receptor antagonists and metformin can interact with vitamin B12, so let us know about these, as well.
Before the injections, we recommend that you prepare by drinking adequate amounts of water every day. We also suggest that you stop smoking for at least a week and that you don’t take anti-inflammatory or blood-thinning medications for a month prior. For the best results, don’t expose your skin to direct sunlight right before your appointment.
Glutathione injections are not effective when taken with antipsychotic drugs, so you will want to discuss stopping them with your healthcare provider. Never stop them abruptly.
The Wellness Injections Procedure and Aftercare
Getting a wellness injection is similar to getting any injection. Our experts will clean the area prior to injection.
It’s a quick procedure and it requires no downtime, making it possible to get back to your regular activities right after.
You want to stay hydrated, so drink water before and after the injections. You can apply an ice pack to the injection site if you want, and we recommend you stay out of direct sunlight for at least a day.
In the first few days after treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise. Do not smoke for at least a week.
Results are not instant, although many of our patients notice an increase in energy levels within a day or two of the injections. Depending on the results you get from these injections, your health, and your goals, we will work with you to decide how often you should receive wellness injections.
Improve Your Energy Levels with Wellness Injections
If you want to improve your energy levels, get brighter skin, and even increase your brain function, wellness injections can help. Vitamin B12 and glutathione injections are minimally invasive and fast, giving you all of the benefits without having to worry about downtime.
