What is IV Vitamin Therapy?
How a commonly used ER procedure is now available to help you look more beautiful and feel more rested.
Intravenous (IV) Vitamin therapy has been popping up in medical spas all around the country, and for good reason. It is a safe and effective treatment to quickly nourish your body with essential vitamins and minerals to help you feel more rested and look more radiant.
What is the purpose of IV Vitamin Drips?
Most patients use IV Vitamin drips to treat jet lag, vitamin deficiencies, low energy, and hangovers. Actually, we are seeing more bachelorette and bachelor parties scheduling IV drips as a new way to help cure the effects of post-celebrations! Most importantly, IV Vitamin Therapy can help restore your body’s nutrient levels to their optimal, functioning state.
Since it takes time for our bodies to absorb vitamins and nutrients from food, 100 percent of what’s in your veins goes straight to the cells and tissues that need it most. This one-way-ticket to your bloodstream means increased energy, a higher metabolism, decreased recovery time – including from cosmetic procedures and treatments – and more restful sleep. All of these effects are directly linked with an improved, radiant complexion.
The brief history of IV Drips & Vitamin Infusions
Intravenous therapy started to have momentum as a medical procedure during the 1960s. Dr. John Myers developed a ‘cocktail’ of vitamins and minerals which he injected into patients who suffered from a wide range of conditions. The injections were so helpful, many patients (many of whom were famous) wished to continue the treatments for various lifestyle reasons. Since then, IV therapy has been a go-to for celebrities like Madonna, Simon Cowell, Cindy Crawford, Rihanna, and Mick Jagger.
How do IV Drips help with vitamin intake?
When we eat, it can take about six to eight hours for food to pass through the stomach and small intestine, where the body absorbs nutrients. As food moves through this natural path, it is broken down into particle form (protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, water, and nutrients) and absorbed into your bloodstream.
IV vitamin therapy bypasses the stomach and takes nutrients on a speedway to your bloodstream, all within minutes and without the calories. Of course it is worth noting that IV drips are not a replacement for meals but rather a boost to your overall health.
What does it feel like to have a Vitamin Infusion?
Vitamin infusions feel exactly like giving blood. The session can take around 45 minutes as the drip slowly worked its way into your veins. Just like giving blood it is important to restrict physical activity directly after a session, avoid excess heat exposure, and partake in healthy eating habits with plenty of water.
What are the direct results of an IV Drip session?
Vitamins and minerals directly impact your internal state as well as your outward appearance. If you do not have a balanced diet, Vitamin Infusions can help bring equilibrium back into your body, including:
- A brighter more youthful complexion
- Reduced signs of aging like fine lines and dark circles
- Increased recovery times from various cosmetic and medical procedures
- Helping your body stay healthy from colds and flus
- Increased energy and memory
- Better sleep
- Improved metabolism and weight loss
According to one woman who documented her experience with an IV drip here, “24 hours after I tried the vitamin infusion, I noticed that the fine lines under my eyes seemed smoother, and my cheeks looked rosier and plumper.” Depending on your goal with this treatment, similar cosmetic results are definitely attainable!
Who should get an IV Drip?
IV Vitamin Therapy is great for anyone needing an extra boost for a special event, experiencing chronic fatigue, recovering from a cosmetic procedure, or are looking to help with weight loss goals. It is a wonderful and non-invasive treatment for older generations who need a little extra help keeping their bodies functioning and healing properly, too. As with any medical procedure, it should be tailored to your individual needs.
