Vitamin Shots Treatment
Life is hectic, and sometimes, the energy department needs a little boost. If your daily vitamins aren’t cutting it and you want to supercharge your energy levels or even up your metabolism, vitamin shots may be the simple solution you’re looking for. Just a few quick injections can make you feel good, look better, and give you the focus and clarity you’ve been searching for.
What are Vitamin Shots?
Vitamin shots are injectable vitamins that are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. While taking oral vitamins is helpful, it’s believed that vitamin shots offer many more benefits than oral pills. Vitamin shots are a quick and easy way to fill your body with vitamins you may be deficient in, whether it be due to your diet or the nature of your body.
When injected, the vitamins bypass the digestive process completely, where some vitamins are lost and their benefits not reaped. By delivering vitamins directly into the bloodstream, there is a faster and more efficient uptake of the vitamins.
The vitamin shots we offer at Charette Cosmetics include vitamins B12, C, and glutathione.
Vitamin B12 helps encourage the production of red blood cells to produce energy from food for an increased and healthier metabolism. Adding B12 to the body can make you feel energized and alive by boosting your mood and energy. It also helps with weight loss and brain function.
These shots can help improve the skin’s tone and texture thanks to their anti-inflammatory benefits. Glutathione, naturally found in the liver and fruits and vegetables, helps clear the body of toxins and free radicals that lead to inflammation, skin aging, and discoloration and helps slow the aging process. They can also promote better energy levels, reduce stress, and aid in weight loss.
Vitamin C shots can do wonders for the immune system and sluggish energy levels. Introducing vitamin C to the body helps reduce cell damage and fatigue, accelerate wound healing for smoother-looking skin, and increase collagen production. Vitamin C also helps protect memory, boost the immune system, and decrease the symptoms and duration of the common cold.
How Do Vitamin Shots Work?
Vitamin shots work by injecting vitamins and introducing them directly into the bloodstream. Since the vitamins are delivered intravenously, they bypass the digestive system for faster onset of action and more powerful results.
As the body absorbs the vitamins quickly, they are used efficiently for results you can see and feel.
No matter which type of vitamin shots you opt for, injecting vitamins should only be done by a trained professional who understands vitamin toxicity. Injecting too much of any one vitamin or the wrong combination of vitamins can be potentially harmful. The proper dosage is critical because when vitamin levels are too high in the body, they can cause adverse effects. When administered adequately and appropriately, injectable vitamins can be safe. Injectable vitamins are not a substitute for a balanced and healthy diet.
Vitamin injections can improve many deficiencies within the body, like malabsorption issues or digestive disorders, which may interfere with the absorption of vitamins from food or oral supplement products. Injectable vitamins can also lead to a more rapid and efficient uptake of the vitamins by the body, as they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and bypass the digestive system. This can be especially beneficial in cases where immediate treatment is needed or in individuals who have difficulty taking dietary supplements due to nausea, vomiting, or other issues.
You will start seeing the results within a few days of receiving a vitamin shot. Since each vitamin has different benefits and effects, what’s injected will dictate what effect you see. Nonetheless, most patients report improved mood and stress levels, a faster metabolism, and clearer skin. Some research shows that vitamin injections can dramatically improve an individual’s immune response and energy levels.
What do Vitamin Shots Feel Like?
A vitamin shot feels similar to any medical shot or vaccine you will likely get. You may feel a slight pinch or sting when the needle is placed under the skin.
Before getting vitamin shots, a complete health and wellness assessment will be taken, where we will discuss your health history, medications, current treatments, and symptoms with you. Then, we will recommend the appropriate vitamin shot for you. A customized dosage will be set.
Next, the vitamin shot is administered directly into the muscle of the butt, thigh, or upper arm and absorbed directly into the bloodstream. We recommend routine injections every few months to maintain a good level of nutrition and energy from vitamins and minerals.
What Are the Benefits of Vitamin Shots?
The benefits vary depending on the vitamin injection.
During your consultation, in addition to your medical history and lifestyle, we’ll also discuss your goals. People generally visit us for injectable vitamins looking for improvements in:
- Athletic performance
- Antiviral effects
- Exercise performance
- Anti-fatigue effects
- Sports performance
- Energy levels
- Immune system function
- Heart health
Vitamin shots also benefit those who are vitamin deficient and suffer from common symptoms like fatigue, irritability, and nausea.
How Much Do Vitamin Shots Cost?
Vitamin shots vary in cost depending on the vitamins used and the number of treatments.
Our vitamin shots can be purchased individually or as a package:
B12: $35/shot or package of 4/$100
Vitamin C: $35/shot or package of 4/$100
Glutathione: $40/shot or package of 4/$120
Call our office to schedule a consultation to create a custom program to correct your current concerns.
The best thing you can do to prepare your body for the shots is to drink plenty of water before your appointment to help hydrate the body well. You'll also want to come to your appointment in loose, comfortable clothing so that it's easier for us to administer the injection.
Vitamin shots are safe, but as with any medical procedure, there are risks and potential side effects. Some patients report pain, swelling, bruising at the injection site, allergic reactions, infection, and anaphylactic shock in rare cases.
Any wellness or beauty injection can cause bruising, so ice the area after 10 to 20. After your shot, you can return to your daily activities without downtime or recovery. However, you may experience a slight headache or pain, which will subside on its own (you can also use over-the-counter pain medication to reduce any discomfort).
Everyone is different; the effects depend on your physical and health status. Typically, the results are noticeable after 12 -24 hours and can last upwards of one week.
