Why B-12?

Vitamin B12 injections help boost your energy and metabolism. Experience a blast of energy and turbocharge your metabolism with a vitamin B12 shot. It’s a crucial complement to any body sculpting procedure you choose. Even as it boosts your energy and metabolism, it also helps reduce stress and detoxifies while reducing fat and strengthening your immunity. Upgrade your overall wellness and vitamin levels with a noticeable energy increase with a vitamin B12 shot!


What is B-12?

It is a water-soluble vitamin that you must get from your diet, as your body does not make it. Large amounts of B12 are found in such foods as fish and beef, with smaller amounts found in dairy products like cheese, yogurt, and eggs.


Why are B-12 Injections Important?

Although you may eat plenty of B12-enriched food, your body may not absorb it or use it efficiently due to aging, alcohol intake, and pollutants from the environment, all of which can take a toll on your body and digestion.

How Often Should I Get a B-12 Shot?

The frequency of B-12 shots depends on individual needs and the underlying reason for getting them. Initially, individuals with B-12 deficiency might receive more frequent shots to quickly restore their levels. After that, a maintenance schedule can be established, which could range from weekly to monthly injections.

Are There Any Side Effects of B-12 Shots?

B-12 shots are generally considered safe. However, some individuals might experience mild discomfort at the injection site or temporary redness. In rare cases, an allergic reaction might occur. It’s essential to inform your healthcare provider of any allergies or medical conditions before receiving a B-12 shot.

How Quickly Can I Expect to Feel the Effects of a B-12 Shot?

The speed at which you notice the effects of a B-12 shot varies. Some people report increased energy and improved mood shortly after the injection, while others might experience these benefits gradually over time. Consistency in receiving B-12 shots as per your healthcare provider’s recommendation can contribute to more noticeable results.

How Do I Know if I Need a B-12 Shot?

If you’re experiencing symptoms like fatigue, weakness, tingling in the hands or feet, mood changes, or memory problems, it’s a good idea to consult a healthcare professional. They can perform tests to determine if you have a B-12 deficiency and recommend appropriate treatment, which might include B-12 shots.

Which Areas Can I Target With BOTOX Injections?

While wrinkles are the most widely recognized target for BOTOX, it can treat other features, too. Amélie’s menu of BOTOX services includes:

Between the Brows

Between the Brows specifically addresses prominent “11s” or frown lines between your eyebrows.

Fresh Face

The Fresh Face treatment addresses several wrinkles on the upper half of your face, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows.

Bright Eyes

Bright Eyes diminishes crow’s feet on the outer corners of your eyes.

Lip Flip

Lip Flip reduces lines and wrinkles on and around your lips. It also helps your upper lip look more voluminous.

Smooth Sailing

Smooth Sailing addresses forehead lines and frown lines at the same time.

Facial Slimming

The team at Amélie can use BOTOX injections to help relax and shrink an overdeveloped masseter muscle in your jaw and keep it from clenching.

Underarms

Many people don’t realize BOTOX can treat excessive sweating, specifically under your armpits. The condition is called hyperhidrosis, and it responds well to BOTOX injections.


Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX Injections?

The team at Amélie will talk with you about your specific goals for treatment to determine whether or not BOTOX is the best option for you. You might be a candidate if:

  • You’re over 18
  • You’re not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have no active skin conditions
  • You have realistic expectations

We may recommend BOTOX to you as a preventative measure even before you develop facial wrinkles if you’re concerned about getting them. Or, depending on the types of wrinkles you have, we may suggest other treatments, like dermal fillers or HALO™ laser skin resurfacing.


What Is It Like To Get BOTOX?

At Amélie, our experienced injectors use very fine needles to place your BOTOX injections in and around your targeted areas. They also use distraction techniques and ice to make your treatment as painless as possible. (Don’t stress about the needle pinch—most people say it feels like a little bug bite!)

Appointments are super quick—we’re talking less than 20 minutes in most cases.


What Is BOTOX Recovery Like?

There’s basically no recovery involved with BOTOX. You can head right back to work, school, or whatever else you’ve got planned. You might have some redness around your injection sites, but that usually goes away within a day.


When Will I See My BOTOX Results?

Results typically show up after about 5 to 10 days. (Dysport is a little faster and only takes about 2 days.) You can expect your results to last about 3 to 4 months.
