Vitamin B12 or cobalamin is a water-soluble vitamin that is critical for red blood cell and DNA formation, cell metabolism, and nerve function. It’s naturally found only in animal-based foods, and some people get enough of it from their diet. Others might have a deficiency, especially if they follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, as they get little to no B12 from their diet. When your body lacks an adequate supply of this vitamin, the majority of your cells will have difficulty taking in enough oxygen. Your energy levels, mood, and concentration can be affected. Vitamin B12 deficiency often goes unrecognized, even though a significant percentage of the population is affected by the problem—especially older adults, since the body’s ability to absorb this vitamin decreases with age.

What Are B12 Injections?

Some of the most common signs and symptoms associated with a deficiency in vitamin B12 are difficulty thinking and remembering, fatigue, heart palpitations, loss of appetite, weakness, pale skin, weight loss, and numbness or tingling in the hands or feet. You may have an increased risk of this deficiency if you are older; have had weight loss surgery; consume a high level of alcohol; have pernicious anemia, atrophic gastritis, or celiac disease; follow a plant-based diet; or have other medical conditions or hereditary conditions that affect the absorption of vitamin B12.

B12 injections help to treat low levels of vitamin B12, ensuring an adequate nutrient intake, and they may be recommended for those who are at risk of a deficiency. Vitamin B12 injections can lower the risk of conditions such as heart disease, stroke, neurological disorders, problems with thinking and memory, vision loss, and infertility. These injections can boost energy levels, brain function, mood, and weight loss. Some believe they may improve energy and endurance during exercise. Injections are highly effective for raising blood levels of B12 to prevent or reverse a deficiency. If you’re unable to maintain normal levels of B12 through your diet or oral supplements, however, you might benefit from B12 injections.

What Happens Before a B12 Injection Session?

Just as we would recommend for any other treatment, your B12 injection procedure at Aesthetic Medicine™ will start with a personalized consultation. We will discuss your goals with you so that we can get a better understanding of what you’re hoping to accomplish, discuss your medical history with you to determine whether you would be a good candidate for B12 injections and make sure that the treatment is safe for you, and recommend the best approach. We can also answer any questions you have about the injections and how they work, along with what kind of results you could realistically expect and how much they will cost. B12 injections are generally very safe unless you are allergic to cobalt or have Leber’s disease.

What Happens During a B12 Injection Session?

Our team will take steps to ensure that B12 injections are as safe and comfortable as they can be. The vitamin is injected into the muscle or deeply under the skin. The dosage will depend on your medical condition.

What Happens After a B12 Injection Session?

There are no major side effects associated with these injections in general—though in very rare cases, patients who have allergic reactions or sensitivity may experience some side effects.

Some patients may need to continue having B12 injections regularly on a daily or monthly basis. For optimal results, we might recommend that you follow a special diet, avoid smoking, and limit your alcohol consumption.

Why Choose Aesthetic Medicine for B12 Injections in Portland?

Our injectors at Aesthetic Medicine™ are highly experienced in performing B12 injections. We aim to maximize both safety and results for patients receiving this treatment. Our goal is to provide optimal results for this treatment with low discomfort and risk.

What Else Is Available Beyond B12 Injections at Aesthetic Medicine™?

Our practice offers a complete range of wrinkle relaxers and other injectables, skin rejuvenation treatment techniques, and non-surgical body contouring or facial contouring procedures.

BOTOX® reduces dynamic wrinkles caused by our habitual facial expressions, such as crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, while dermal fillers add volume to reduce static wrinkles, improve hollow or thin areas, or augment facial features. Juvederm® and Restylane® are some of the most popular hyaluronic acid fillers, while Sculptra® is a different type of filler that encourages collagen production to enhance the cheeks and lower face area. Our team can help you decide which approach is best for your needs and customize your treatment plan based on your goals.

How Botox® Cosmetic Works – The Science Behind The Treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic has a one-of-a-kind formulation and only BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.

What Causes Facial Lines?

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. See real results with BOTOX® Cosmetic: the #1 selling product of its kind in the world. If you are looking for a Portland Botox specialist you can trust feel free to call or fill out the form above to schedule your Botox® consultation with the Aesthetic Medicine team.

MODERATE TO SEVERE FROWN LINES

When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.

MODERATE TO SEVERE CROW’S FEET

When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing crow’s feet. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.

MODERATE TO SEVERE FOREHEAD LINES

When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.

What Should I Expect?

Some patients receiving BOTOX Injections Portland report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
