Allergy Immunotherapy
(Allergy Shots Or Allergy Drops)

Depending on what kind of allergy you have, you may be able to train your immune system to react less to allergens. This preventative treatment available called allergy immunotherapy helps to lessen allergic reactions to allergens such as:

Allergy immunotherapy treatment builds up the immune system’s tolerance to allergens. While allergy medications only suppress the symptoms, allergy immunotherapy actually involves initial small doses of the allergen that affects you. Gradually, the dose is increased in incremental stages to get your immune system used to the allergen in question. It also can reduce the inflammation associated with rhinitis and asthma to some degree.

Before beginning treatment, we perform allergy tests to identify the allergens that affect you the most.

Why Allergy Immunotherapy?

Allergy Immunotherapy is the best form of treatment to manage allergies effectively, and on a long-term basis. It’s an ideal option for those patients that:

  • Can’t avoid the allergens that trigger them
  • Have trouble managing their allergies
  • Don’t like feeling the drowsy effects of antihistamines

Immunotherapy can come in one of two forms—allergy shots or sublingual drops.

Allergy Shots

Allergy shots are also called subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) and are the most effective form of immunotherapy. Unlike tablets, allergy shots can simultaneously treat multiple allergens and can help prevent the development of new allergies or even asthma.

Allergy Drops

Allergy drops are a treatment referred to as sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). It offers allergy treatment without shots. Similar to the shots, the tablets reduce the symptoms by building resistance to an allergen’s effects. It’s a good solution for those with a phobia of needles with a caveat.
