What is Vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps to keep your nerves and blood cells healthy. Our bodies don’t make Vitamin B12, it is obtained from foods such as meat, fish, milk and eggs. You may have a deficiency if you are vegan, don’t eat enough B12 rich food, or if you have other health conditions which mean you are unable to absorb it properly, such as pernicious anaemia.

Symptoms of deficiency can vary from person to person, but can include extreme tiredness and lack of energy, breathlessness and feeling faint, headaches, pale skin, heart palpitations and sometimes a loss of appetite and weight loss.

What is the Vitamin B12 injection?

The vitamin B12 injection is known as hydroxocobalamin and is injected into the buttock. Vitamin B12 tablets (known as cyanocobalamin ) are also available and can be bought over the counter from pharmacies or health stores, but are not as effective as the injection.

What do I do if I think I need Vitamin B12 injection?

To be treated at Regents park Aesthetics we do need to check your levels of Vitamin B12, Folate and Intrinsic Factor Antibodies (IFAs) to understand the cause of your deficiency and ensure that you receive the right treatment.

If you are showing symptoms you can see your GP for a test or arrange it privately with our clinic. We need to see the results of this test before we can treat you.

How often should I have a B12 injection?

We usually recommend them fortnightly for 4 sessions. Then once every 3 months.

How do I make an appointment?

You can make one of the following appointments with us:

  • Consultation and blood test 
  • Starting a new course of B12 treatments 
  • Continuing a previously started course of B12 treatments

When you have your results, you can call our Team on 0207 5804813, who will be able to make an appointment with one of our medical team to start treatment.

Please ensure that you bring a copy of any results with you to your first appointment.

What are the side effects of the B12 injection?

The B12 injection is generally very safe. However, some people may experience some pain, swelling or redness at the injection site, and in much rarer cases headaches, itching or nausea.

Kay is an absolute magician. The results of my facial threading are fantastic. I have also had Kay do my lip fillers and Botox both with incredible results. Totally trust her judgement.

I had a previously poor experience with Botox at another clinic, my niece recommended Maryam to me and I'm very happy she did. The results have been amazing. Mariam is completely professional and has a very calming and gentle manner. I will certainly recommend her to my friends.

I have recently started to use this clinic for Facial Aesthetics....The Clinics Results are outstanding....For Such Reasonable Costs..Maryam honestly told me when and where I really needed treatment and her tear trough procedure was superb.Unlike other clinics you pay reasonably for what you need and when you truly need it.

These ladies are excellent, I have been seeing them over two years. They’re honest and very well versed in all things fillers and Botox, I’d HIGHLY recommend them. There’s a lot of choice in London and you don’t always get what you pay for, you do here.
