An intramuscular injection refers to a medical procedure where medication is delivered deep into the muscles. Vaccines, booster shots, and other needle injections usually refer to an IM injection. IM injections are sometimes necessary because other ways of ingesting medication (like subcutaneous injections or oral ingestion) don’t get the medicine into your system fast enough. But since the muscle layer of your body contains more blood than the surface layers, medication can start taking effect soon after your injection.
However, IM injections are far from the easiest thing that a medical practitioner can do. Because each patient has different anatomy, the injector has to be careful that they don’t damage any muscle groups, blood vessels, or nerves when doing an IM injection. This is also why it’s crucial to find a trained and licensed injector, so you can avoid any adverse effects from your IM injection.
Dr. V Medical Aesthetics has extensive experience in using IM injections on all our patients, ensuring that the procedure is done quickly and efficiently. We also offer other options that can make the process easier, like topical anesthetics to help numb the pain and post-procedure aftercare for people with sensitive skin.
IM injections need skill and expertise to do correctly, but they also require an intimate knowledge of a patient’s anatomy and needs before the injection. Dr. V Medical Aesthetics makes it a point to personalize all our treatments for our patients, ensuring that their comfort and safety are prioritized while not sacrificing the results of their treatment.

A: Some medications require some self-medication with IM injections, but as a general rule you should always have them done in-clinic with a trained and licensed professional. Not only does this guarantee that you’ll get good results, but this also lessens the likelihood of something going wrong during your injection.
A: Most side effects from IM injections are mild and go away within a week of treatment. Serious complications only happen if something goes wrong in the injection process – typically if it’s been handled by an unskilled injector. If you get your IM injections done by a professional, this is less likely to happen.
A: Like most injections, IM injections have some level of pain with the procedure. However, patients can opt for topical anesthetic to help ease the pain before the procedure. If you have other concerns about your treatment, you can always consult your provider for answers.
