The process will look similar to this when recommending Flower Mound immunotherapy for allergies.
- Allergy testing. Before starting allergy shots, your doctor will do skin testing and sometimes a blood test to determine which specific allergens cause your symptoms. Allergy testing is available for adults and children. You don’t have to wait long to find out what your allergy triggers are. Results of skin testing are available in about 20 minutes.
- Buildup phase. During this phase you will receive injections with increasing amounts of the allergens approximately one to two times per week. Generally, this phase is from three to six months.
- Maintenance phase. This phase begins once an effective dose is reached. The maintenance dose will depend on your level of allergen sensitivity and your response to the build-up phase. Maintenance allows you to have longer periods of time between injections – generally 2 to 4 weeks. Maintenance immunotherapy treatment is generally 3 to 5 years.
