The allergy testing procedure is virtually painless and takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes. A small allergy applicator, filled with allergens specific to the Geographical region, is applied to the skin to abrade/scratch the skin. This causes a local reaction and ultimately reveals the sensitivity to these specific allergens.
With allergy immunotherapy patients can get the benefits they need without the constant use of antihistamines and other medications. Immunotherapy is the desensitizing phase of allergens, that patients show a reaction to during the test. These allergens are introduced into the system in very small increments. The immune system creates antibodies against these allergens to produce desensitization.
Allergies have been proven to be contributing factors to many health issues patients suffer from on a daily basis.
