IV Therapy Q&A
What is IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and nutrients directly into your bloodstream to address certain deficiencies while improving your overall health and well-being.
When taken orally, any food or supplement must pass through your digestive system, where absorption is slow. This takes time and is typically not as potent as substances administered through an IV. Oral supplements can also upset your stomach, leading to nausea and diarrhea.
IV therapy allows nutrients and medications to bypass your gastrointestinal tract to enhance your results without upsetting your stomach or causing any other uncomfortable side effects.
What are the benefits of IV therapy?
IV therapy can boost energy levels, improve digestion, enhance mental clarity, and even reduce the effects of a hangover. Depending on the treatment you choose, IV therapy can also improve the symptoms of the following conditions:
- Chronic pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Low immunity
- Chronic fatigue
- Slow-healing wounds
At ANU Medspa, patients can access various types of IV therapy, including:
- Vitamin C
- Inner beauty
- Vitamin B complexes
- Get Up and Go (boosts brain metabolism)
- IV hydration therapy
Many IV therapy treatments detoxify and hydrate your body, enhancing the tone and texture of your skin. Because IV therapy is more potent than oral supplements, it can also help improve your athletic performance.
You may also consider IV therapy if you follow a diet that may not provide the essential nutrients you need.
What happens during IV therapy?
Most IV therapy treatments at ANU Medspa take anywhere from 40 minutes to one hour. When you arrive for your treatment, the team reviews your medical history and asks questions regarding your possible symptoms and concerns. Depending on this review, they may recommend a blood test before treatment.
Once they create your vitamin and mineral solution, the team inserts the IV into your arm. During treatment, you can relax and unwind. You may feel more energized and relaxed immediately after your first session.
Many people experience lasting benefits from IV therapy for at least a week or longer. You can maintain your results by returning for bi-weekly treatments. Since IV therapy is safe, effective, and minimally invasive, there’s virtually no limit to how many treatments you can have.
