Most of us are living busy, hectic lives; rushing around, working overtime and leaving little time to take care of our health and wellbeing. This busy way of life can take its toll, not only on the way we feel but on our skin as well, especially if it is coupled with a less than nutritious diet and a busy social life, including nights out and drinking lots of alcohol.
Sometimes we need an extra boost to help us to remain on top form and to supplement our diet. At Dr MediSpa in Loughton in Essex and Chiltern Street, London, we offer vitamin B12 drips to revitalise and rejuvenate anyone feeling the stress of everyday living and to help keep the skin looking beautiful.
Vitamin B12 drips, which are delivered as a drip in the arm, are quickly becoming an extremely popular treatment amongst those that live life to the max, as a regular pick me up and as ‘liquid skincare’, boosting the metabolism, energizing the body and getting the skin glowing from the inside out. Many well-known celebrities such as Kim Kardashian have been using vitamin drips as a fast and convenient treatment to combat a hectic, busy lifestyle and they swear by them as a regular and convenient treatment.
Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps to keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy. It also assists with making DNA, the genetic materials in the cells. Vitamin B12 is known to help prevent a type of anaemia called megaloblastic anaemia which makes people tired and weak. In delivering vitamin B12 directly in to the blood stream, the substance is more readily absorbed and more of the product gets to work in the system, rather than taking tablets which can destroy much of the product as it reaches the stomach.
Before any treatment with vitamin B12 drips here at Dr MediSpa, you will need a full consultation to discuss your medical history and your expectations for results.
The treatment itself is very straightforward. You will be asked to relax in a chair or on the treatment couch. An intravenous needle will be inserted into a vein in your arm or hand. This is attached via a surgical tube to a clear bag containing your B12 solution. All you then need to do is relax and let the solution enter your system.
Treatment takes between 20-30 minutes for the full solution to be administered.
Like any blood test or injection, you may feel a sharp scratch on entry point of the needle, but after this there is little-to-no discomfort.
The vitamin B12 drip treatment requires no downtime and you can return to your daily activities immediately afterwards, feeling rejuvenated and with more energy.
Many patients comment that they feel instantly better following a vitamin drip and the results can last up to a month. It is recommended that you have monthly sessions to maintain results for healthier-looking skin and to keep you feeling on top form.
