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.

"My breasts have been “deflated” for a long time - 27 years old. 2 Children. Breastfeeding. 70lb weight loss. My result, breasts somewhere between 12 year old boy and 72 year old woman. Currently, I’m 135lbs and 5’8”. My breasts have been “deflated” for a long time. I wasn’t sure if I needed Augmentation and a lift. After talking to my surgeon I decided on 750CC UHP over the muscle."- M. / RealSelf / Jun 22, 2019

"This is truly the best place in town for botox. Don’t waste your money anywhere else. I just came here to have a droopy eye created by another place (botox party) corrected and it instantly looks so much better. I’ve relied on botox and dysport for years for a youthful appearance and no place I have ever been can compare with Angie’s expertise. Also the office staff and reception are so nice and welcoming and the office is in a such beautiful setting."- G.C. / Facebook / Jun 18, 2019
