Missing your morning coffee may not be the only reason you feel tired and weak. Anemia is an all too common problem that people can develop when their bodies don’t get enough nutrients. The key to preventing it is having a varied diet, but of course, it’s hard to get a full meal in when you’re always on the go. The good news is that this problem can be addressed with a simple Vitamin B12 injection. Kirin can administer this and other injections (and infusion treatments) here at Emerald Aesthetics.

What Causes Anemia?

Anemia can be present at birth or develop over time. It occurs when your body doesn’t develop enough red blood cells. This can happen for several reasons. Your body may simply not make enough cells, bleeding may cause you to lose red blood cells quickly, or your body may destroy your red blood cells.

How Is Anemia Addressed?

Congenital anemia can’t be prevented, but vitamin deficiency anemias can be addressed by increasing the amount of Vitamin B12 in your diet. Obviously, it can be very hard to get enough vitamins in your diet alone – that’s why people take supplements. Vitamin B12 injections are the most effective way to get the B12 you need without eating more or drastically changing your lifestyle.

What Can I Expect?

During your visit, Kirin will administer your Vitamin B12 injections in less than an hour. After the injection, some people report feeling increased energy and alertness. Once the injection has been completed, you will be free to return to the rest of your day as no downtime is needed after the treatment.
