Allergy Shots in Arlington, TX

Experts in Providing You & Your Family Relief

Subcutaneous immunotherapy, or allergy shots, are a form of allergen desensitization which could move allergies completely into remission. This therapy is proven to cause disease-modifying effects on allergies, which essentially treats the cause, not the disease. This will give patients better relief than any other medication alone and is considered a natural approach to treating allergies.

Insurance benefits do apply to this treatment. Please contact us so we can check if your insurance will cover this treatment. All treatments are created and supervised by a board-certified doctor in Allergy and Immunology.

Allergy Shots Q & A

Allergy shots act like a vaccine, triggering your body's immune response to fight allergies naturally.

The shots can minimize or eliminate an allergic reaction to a variety of allergens, such as:

  • Animal dander
  • Mold
  • Dust
  • Trees
  • Grass
  • Weeds

By lowering your sensitivity to allergens, allergy shots often lead to lasting relief from allergy symptoms — even after you stop treatment. Allergy shots also may prevent new allergies. In children, allergy shots may stop allergies from turning into asthma.

Who Benefits from Allergy Shots?

Individuals of all ages benefit from allergy shots, including children over the age of five. Allergy shots can address nearly every form of allergy, except for food allergies. In such cases, we provide food desensitization therapy using the latest techniques in sublingual (under the tongue) and oral immunotherapy.

What Is the Difference Between Allergy Shots, Tablets, or Drops?

Sublingual immunotherapy (CureSLIT) is a newer type of treatment for allergies. With this method, you take drops, rather than allergy shots. This methodallows us to customize the strength based on patient sensitivity offering a more comfortable and convenient process.

Shots can correct more allergens than CureSLIT, even though both of them can treat several allergens at same time. CureSLIT is safer, and thus allowed to be done at home. CureSLIT also involves less office visits.

Insurance benefits do not apply to CureSLIT, because it is consider an off label treatment option.

What to Expect During Allergy Shots?

Our doctor administers a tiny amount of an allergen extract where the doses will increase over time, gradually building up your immunity to the allergen. Allergy shots happen in two phases:

  • Build-up phase: With the build-up phase, each injection dose gets stronger and stronger as your body builds up a tolerance. During this phase, the patient generally comes into the office once a week.
  • Maintenance phase: During the maintenance phase, the shots get more and more spread out. At this point, a patient comes in once every 2-3 weeks.
