Vitamin B-12 is one of the most important vitamins to optimize for many different reasons. Vitamin B-12 shots are used to increase your energy, rev up your metabolism and help if you are deficient in certain nutrients. Vitamin B-12 injections bypass the digestive system, and increase your body’s stores temporarily, to help give you a more immediate boost. Many medications, improper diet, medical conditions, and the normal aging process can lead to B-12 deficiency.

"I had an amazing experience undergoing Ultherapy with Christine at Dorner Plastic Surgery. I was a bit worried about the pain going into the treatment, however, Christine was able to keep my discomfort to an absolute minimum. I would highly recommend this non-invasive, essentially painless treatment!"- A.S. / Google / Jan 18, 2020

"I wish I could give more than five stars; AMAZING experience! I've struggled to build muscle/bulk in certain areas of my body my whole life and decided it was time to take action. For about 6 months, I researched options and plastic surgeons, mostly based in LA and NY. I luckily stumbled across Dr. Dorner in my search and I'm so glad I found him. The whole staff is very friendly, supportive, smart and very accommodating. Dr. Dorner made recommendations based on the results I was trying to achieve and I have to say, he knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend Dorner Plastic Surgery."- R.C. / Google / Nov 23, 2019
