What is a Vitamin Infusion at Skintegrity Med Spa? It is a customized cocktail of essential vitamins your skin needs to heal years of damage. The formula is designed to fight the signs of aging, and stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin from the inside out. The result—healthy, well-nourished skin that feels smooth and silky and looks naturally youthful and fresh!
What is IV vitamin infusion?
Eating the right foods isn’t always possible, and does not guarantee that you are giving your body every nutrient it needs. Our Bellevue vitamin IV nutrition therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream, infusing the body at the cellular level for optimal health and wellness. When these essential nutrients are administered intravenously, they skip the digestive tract and go right to work. Unlike oral supplements, IV therapy delivers concentrated amounts of nutrients to restore, replenish, and rejuvenate your skin and body from the inside out.
What can I expect with an IV infusion?
Because the medical requirements and aesthetic concerns of each patient are different and unique, every vitamin infusion treatment at Skintegrity Med Spa is custom-tailored. However, most treatments will contain some blend of the most critical vitamins your skin needs to stay active and healthy:
- Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C): A natural skin lightener, Vitamin C is an essential component for your skin’s fight against pigmentation problems caused by sun exposure and environmental damage. It can also protect the skin against free radicals known to cause premature aging and help generate new collagen growth.
- Vitamin D
- Folic acid
- Vitamin A: A critical component in wound healing, Vitamin A has been shown to improve the rate of skin turnover and spark more efficient skin regeneration.
- Thiamine (Vitamin B1)
- Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
- Pyridoxine HCl (Vitamin B6)
- Vitamin B12
B-complex vitamins are essential to mental and emotional well-being. They cannot be stored in your body, so we depend entirely on our daily diet for an adequate supply. B vitamins levels in the blood are affected by alcohol, refined sugars, nicotine, and caffeine, so it is no surprise that many people may be deficient in these. The first clinical effects of insufficient quantities of vitamin B are mood changes, insomnia, changes in appetite, sugar cravings, and impaired drug metabolism. As a group, the B vitamins play an essential role both in mood and anxiety.
