vitamin b12 shot & vitamin d shots
Vitamin injections are becoming more in demand as people become aware of the many benefits, as well as the potential link between a lack of vitamins and various associated ailments or illnesses.
Perfect for those who may benefit from the natural immunity, mood and energy boost that you can get with a vitamin shot. Ideal for those who follow a Vegan or Vegetarian diet to protect the Vitamin B12 or D intake.

Preparing for Vitamin Injections
IMPORTANT TO NOTE:
- Administration is via injection – and may have to be approached with caution in those with Trypanophobia. No topical anaesthetic is used.
- It is normal to experience heaviness in the arm area – this will subside and pass.
- All products used are suitable for vegans and are cruelty free. Each tool used is single use and is disposed off after each treatment.
- The highest standards of hygiene are maintained and observed in the treatment room.
- The actual injecting time is no more than 15 mins, with the remaining appointment time being for preparation and aftercare discussion.

That’s OK ! The administration dose of the product can be tailored to suit your end result – whether that is a totally frozen forehead is your preference, or if you want to maintain a more natural movement which is sometimes referred to as Baby Botox.
As Botox, and other Botulinum Toxin treatments, are a prescription only medication – the prescription for your treatment can only be created once a consultation has taken place and qualified you suitable to receive Botox – which can then be ordered.
It is not recommended to have more botulinum toxin in the same are any sooner than 3 months in the same area.
The follow up appointment after 2 weeks is to assess the efficacy (how well the botulinum toxin has worked) and if any tweaks are required. Everyone is different and has different needs so in most cases any additional B’tox is not required.
How often you will require the treatment depends on the severity of the lines of concern, and the strength of the muscles in the area. This can vary from regular treatments every 3-4 months, to treatments 1-2 times per year.
With continued treatment muscles in the affected area can weaken increasing the longevity of the treatment. However, there are some individuals who can develop a resistance to products over time.
Your lifestyle can also play a role in how quickly the treatment wears off. Sunbed users and physically fit individuals can sometimes metabolise the product quicker and therefore require more regular treatment.
Dermal fillers are for adding or correcting volume whereas anti wrinkle injections work to reduce muscle movement. Dermal fillers can last longer than 6 months, but anti wrinkle injections can need refreshing after 3 months.
Botulinum toxin A is the main ingredient in the licenced brands in the UK that is often referred to as Botox.
I use Botox, BoCouture & Azzalure depending on the client need and the area to be treated.
