As a person gets older, their body inevitably begins displaying signs of wear and tear along the way. Men in particular may start noticing deep skin creases, permanently furrowed brows, and lower levels of energy. Whether it be wrinkles, a slower metabolism, or a weak immune system, the issue may be that you are not getting enough vitamin B-12.
Skin Med Spa can alleviate these problems and help you retain a more youthful look with our high-quality treatments. We are caring professionals who provide treatments for several conditions, including vitamin injections for men and women searching for skin rejuvenation.
What is B-12?
Your body needs essential vitamins in order to function properly. Vitamins play a vital role in keeping every part of your body in balance including the nerves, brain, digestive system, skin, and immune system. B-12, otherwise known as Cobalamin, is one of eight existing B vitamins needed to keep your system regulated. It controls the reproduction of red blood cells, assists in the formation of new tissue, converts food into energy, and keeps your nervous system running smoothly. At Skin Med Spa, we offer Cyanocobalamin injections — the man-made form of vitamin B-12. With regular B-12 injections, customers usually notice better skin, an increase in energy, a strengthened immune system, improved memory and cardiovascular health, and even weight loss.
Do You Have a B-12 Deficiency?
Since B-12 is typically absorbed through animal-based foods, those who are more likely to have this vitamin deficiency are people with dietary restrictions such as vegans and vegetarians, older folks who have less stomach acid to break down food, pregnant women, and people who are anemic. Those who drink heavily, maintain a poor diet, smoke, or simply have no time to remind themselves to take necessary vitamins are also more likely to be deficient.
What Happens When You Don’t Get Enough B-12?
For those who have a B-12 deficiency, they are more prone to experiencing sickness, memory loss, skin issues, mobility issues and much more. Signs are slow to develop and often take many years before becoming noticeable, but it is usually best not to wait until it is too late. Without these nutrients, you can fall victim to extreme fatigue, confusion, and tingling sensations in your feet and hands. For those with poor health, having a B-12 deficiency can also make you more susceptible to anemia, dementia, and depression among other illnesses.
Taking a vitamin injection can assist in safeguarding against these concerns. Even if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat balanced meals, getting a B-12 injection is not harmful, and even in bigger doses, your body will excrete this vitamin if there is too much.
