Life’s journey takes can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body. Today, more than ever, we are exposed to processed foods, pollution, environmental toxins, and stress that can contribute to a weakened immune system. Vitamin therapy can improve your quality of life by providing the nutrients that your body craves.

What is vitamin therapy?

Vitamin therapy works by offering a direct infusion of vitamins and minerals. If you are feeling run down or generally fatigued, a vitamin shot could be the answer. The majority of men and women are deficient in at least one or more nutrients. Vitamin therapy works well because the body absorbs nutrients much better through an injection than orally.

How does vitamin therapy work?

When nutrients are injected directly into your bloodstream, they are directed where needed most, to your cells. Vitamin therapy bypasses the digestive system offering a quick and effective way to enhance the functions of your immune system while giving you a much-needed boost of energy.

What are the benefits of vitamin therapy?

  • Fights environmental toxins
  • Ensures proper absorption
  • Excellent preventative therapy
  • Positive effects within hours
  • Treatments can be customized
  • Energy boost
  • Replenishes lost vitamins after strenuous workouts
  • Reduces reliance on pills

Who is a candidate?

Vitamin therapy has been in use for decades and is safe and very effective. It is an excellent option for those who feel lethargic, have a weakened immune system or need a natural energy level boost. Any person who takes vitamins is likely a good candidate for vitamin therapy. The experts at Acqua MedSpa are experienced with the different vitamin shots and can recommend the most effective type of injection for you.

How long to the results generally last?

Nutrients from the vitamin shots are water-soluble. The effects can vary by individual. Typically, the results last about seven days.

Why should I choose Acqua MedSpa?

Located in Pasadena, Texas, Board Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ciaravino oversees all treatments at his luxury Acqua MedSpa clinics. With a reputation as one of the nation’s leading surgeons focused on the breast, body, and face, Acqua MedSpa offers the most effective aesthetic and wellness treatments, all under the care of one of the most acclaimed medical professionals practicing in Texas.

What type of vitamin shots does Acqua Medspa offer?

  • Vitamin B12 is important to your overall health. A vitamin B12 shot can elevate your mood, promote better sleep, and give you an energizing boost.
  • You body naturally produces glutathione, and when depleted, can leave you feeling tired. Adding a glutathione shot to your routine is a great way to detoxify and support an overloaded immune system.
  • Lipo-B shots, also known as lipotropic injections, support improved liver health. Consisting of three amino acids: choline, methione, and inositol, Lipo-B shots are a safe and effective way to help you feel energized while giving your metabolism a boost.

Why is vitamin therapy better than taking an oral supplement?

In some cases, individuals can struggle to properly digest oral supplements. There are many factors as to why supplements are poorly digested, including poor gut health and intestinal inflammation. Vitamin injections bypass these challenges as the nutrients are injected into the body directly for an instantaneous boost.

Can I get a B12 shot if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

We always like to err on the side of caution with mothers. Taking your baby’s health into consideration is a priority to us, and while B12 injections are safe for you, it is not known whether it will harm an unborn or breastfeeding baby. We avoid giving injections in these cases and recommend oral supplements.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are rare. Occasionally, you may experience bruising or redness at the injection site. Inflammation or tenderness can also occur. These side effects should only last from a few minutes to a couple of days at most. If you have any known allergies, it is important to discuss them with our expert injector before treatment.

Do the shots hurt?

Pain tolerance is different for everyone. Our patients have reported that they are quite comfortable during injections. Making sure that you are well hydrated will help with your overall level of comfort. If you are tense or have just worked out, you may feel the pinch of the shot a bit more.

The service and staff are amazing! I came in for dysport and was a bit nervous but they made me feel very comfortable and at ease.
