Biotin Vitamin B7 Injection

Biotin Vitamin B7 Injection

Biotin, also known as Vitamin B7, is known for its ability to make hair strong and shiny, preventing hair loss, and strengthening brittle nails. It’s also an essential component in helping the body convert food into energy, and helping to metabolise fats and protein from our food. 

For many people, a Vitamin B7 deficiency can lead to significant problems with their skin’s inner health and outer appearance. Dry, itchy skin is one of the most common issues people suffer from, although more serious conditions like acne and eczema can also arise along with tiredness and depression. In most cases, a biotin supplement can correct the issue, helping to create a healthier youthful glow.

Final Results

Biotin begins to work immediately but it may take a few days for you to feel the improvement in symptoms. To maintain the improved feeling of wellbeing, and the improvement in your hair, skin and nails an ongoing individual course of treatment, that is planned with your practitioner, is recommended.

Pre-Treatment Information

Biotin is a water soluble nutrient so we aren’t able to store it in our body although the bacteria that live in our intestines are able to produce a small amount. Biotin works on the protein called keratin which makes up hair, skin and nails and by supporting the enzymes that break down fat, protein and carbohydrates in our food turning them into energy which in turn may result in weight loss.  

Biotin can be taken in a tablet form or given intramuscularly as an injection. Most supplements are not effectively absorbed by our bodies through ingestion and thus intramuscular Biotin injection has been more effective in increasing Biotin levels faster in many patients.

Symptoms of Deficient Biotin
  • Tiredness and muscle pain
  • Depression, memory loss or behavioural changes
  • Hair loss
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Facial rash

The treatment for Biotin deficiency is quick and easy and very effective. An injection of Biotin is given, usually weekly although more often is safe, into a muscle in your upper arm or your buttock if you prefer.  The injection is administered by someone who is specifically trained to do so. 

Biotin starts to work immediately but it may take a few days for you to begin to notice the improvement in your symptoms.

Treatment can be short or long term, if you have an ongoing deficiency you could very easily have treatment for the rest of your life.

Who can and can’t take Biotin

Most adults can safely have Biotin injections however it isn’t suitable for everyone.

To make sure it is safe for you to have Biotin injections please tell your practitioner of you:

  • Have had an allergic reaction to Biotin or any other medicines in the past

High doses of Biotin may affect the results of certain blood tests e.g. Thyroid function tests, please discuss your individual case with your practitioner 

Post-Treatment Information

Congratulations on beginning your course of Biotin, you’re on your way to looking and feeling better. Hopefully, your injection wasn’t too uncomfortable.

Common side effects

Most patients have absolutely no problems at all following their treatment and within an hour or so have completely forgotten that it has even happened. 

There are however a few things that you may experience: 

  • Around the site of the injection (either your upper arm or your buttock) you may notice the area may feel a little uncomfortable, swollen or itchy. This is absolutely normal and usually resolves very quickly however should it continue for more than a few days please contact us at the clinic.
  • Facial rash
  • Gastrointestinal upset

Very few side effects have been experienced providing you do not exceed the recommended dose. 

How to cope with side effects
  • Pain, swelling or itchy skin at the site of the injection – a mild pain killer e.g. Paracetamol is recommended if required
  • Facial rash – make sure your skin is clean and dry and free from make-up. Please discuss your individual skin care needs with your practitioner who will provide you with appropriate advice
  • Gastrointestinal upset – stick to simple meals, avoiding rich or spicy food. If you are being sick, try small, frequent sips of water to avoid dehydration
Cautions with other medicines

Biotin is usually safe to take with other medicines including pain killers.
