Say goodbye to dull skin and to wasted days of feeling hungover, lethargic, jet lagged, or recovering from strenuous exercise.
During a person’s IV vitamin drip therapy, they are receiving a liquid mixture of vitamins and minerals through a small tube that is inserted into a vein. This allows the nutrients to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. This safe and effective method delivers higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in to your body. There are many factors that affect our body’s ability to absorb any nutrients in the stomach. These factors include age, genetics, health, metabolism, interactions with other products we consume, or the chemical and physical combinations of ingredients that are added to food we consume. Higher level of vitamins and minerals in your bloodstream lead to more sufficient uptake into your cells, which support use of the nutrients to maintain health and improve the immune system.
Frequently asked questions:
1. Is IV vitamin therapy safe?
IV vitamin therapy is a safe and very effective treatment for those who have vitamin deficiencies, have a weakened immune system, compromised intestinal health. It is always recommended to consult with your primary physician before trying any new treatments. Our IV therapies contain natural vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are found in foods and supplementation. Sensitives and allergies are very rare.
2. How often should I receive treatment?
The frequency of treatments vary between individuals. A few factors that can contribute to vitamin deficiencies are stress, chronic diseases, GI distress, certain medications, and we recommend treatment at least once a month to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If pre-existing conditions exist, the frequency may be more often, as much as once a week.
3. How does IV vitamin therapy work?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is the administration of a fluid substance (solution) directly into a vein as a therapeutic When solutions are administered via IV, the ingredients are 100% bioavailable. Bioavailability if the measurement of the amount of the substance that the body retains. In simpler terms, when you receive something intravenous, your body absorbs 100% of that solution. What this means is that when you receive doses of vitamins and minerals through our IV therapies, you absorb all of it. We are able to bypass the digestive tract and allow the body to absorb these nutrients that are so crucial to health and wellness. We are also able to administer much higher doses than what we can tolerate orally. When we take an oral supplement, we absorb a fraction of the nutrient, sometimes as low as 15%.
4. How long will my appointment be?
A typical IV therapy treatment takes about 30-45 minutes. There are a few treatments that take longer. Please ask us your treatment time so you can plan accordingly. We pride ourselves in low wait times and quick, yet thorough service.
5. What are the benefits of IV therapy?
Benefits of IV vitamin therapy range from optimal hydration, electrolyte balance, 100% bioavailability, maximum dosing of essential nutrients, and bypassing the digestive tract. IV vitamin therapy may boost the immune system, increase energy levels, reduce brain fog, detox cells, and speed up healing and recovery and give your skin a radiant glowing boost.

6. How long will the treatment last in my system?
Similar to how quickly you will feel the benefits of our therapies, your current health status will determine how long these nutrients will last in your body. Being that the nutrients administer via IV are water-soluble, they usually have a lifespan of 10-12 days. The effects of these powerful vitamins may last much longer, as much as a few weeks. It is important to stay consistent with treatments. If there is too much time between treatments, your blood serum levels will be depleted each time and we will essentially need to build the levels back up each time. The more consistent you are with treatments, the better!
7. What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is an antioxidant produced naturally by the liver. Research shows that raised Glutathione levels decrease muscle damage, reduce recovery time, increase strength and endurance, shift metabolism from fat production to muscle development, supports the immune system, protects our cells by maintaining cellular mitochondria, etc.
8. Can Glutathione help reduce dark spots?
Glutathione can lighten spots on the skin because of it’s ability to inhibit melanin production. It’s antioxidant properties also protect the skin from UV radiation and other stressors that cause skin damage and hyper-pigmentation.
9. Why make Vitamin C part of your skincare regime?
Vitamin C protects the skin from UVA and UVB damage and reduces hyper-pigmentation. It boosts the body’s collagen production, firming the skin and reducing wrinkles. Vitamin C peels the superficial layers of the epidermis, giving a fresher and brighter look to the skin.
