To boost energy and keep fatigue at bay, the Aesthetic Center of Gainesville offers B-12 shots. Vitamin B12 is useful for the development of red blood cells and helps keep your cardiovascular and nervous systems healthy. Medical professionals use the vitamin injections to boost energy levels and help you feel and look better than ever before. Additionally, B-12 is known to have weight loss properties, where the appetite is suppressed and the vitamin acts as a mild diuretic. We recommend these injections once a month for continuous energy in a safe and effective manner.

The most common B-12 shots are Cyanocobalamin, which is a synthetic version of the vitamin. The injection is administered directly into the muscle of the thigh or the upper arm. This allows the vitamin to be directly absorbed into the bloodstream for a quick-acting effect. The shot is similar to virtually any shot, where it will feel like a normal prick or a quick stinging sensation.
What to Expect
After the shot, there might be redness, tenderness, or itching, which usually subsides shortly after the shot. Many patients experience feeling an instant boost with more energy and a clearer mind. Many patients also report that they feel less hungry after the injections.
