What to Expect from Allergy Shot Treatment in Newhall CA
Allergy shot treatment consists of three main phases:
- Testing: Naturally before we begin allergy shot treatment in Newhall CA, it is important to identify all your allergic triggers. Our expert allergists can provide allergy testing for this purpose.
- Build-Up Phase: During the first phase of treatment, you will get an allergy shot 1 or 2 times per week. The build-up phase may last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, depending on how long it takes to slowly and safely increase the amount of allergen in each shot to the appropriate level for building immunity.
- Maintenance Phase: Once the target dose has been reached, you will continue to receive allergy shots every 2 to 4 weeks for 3 to 5 years. Though you will likely begin to see significant reduction in allergy symptoms after 1 year of treatment, you will need to stick with the treatment to maximize its effectiveness.
