IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a method of replenishing nutrients that you either don’t get through the foods you eat or have depleted in some way. It’s a versatile treatment that can rebalance your vitamins and nutrients to treat imbalances and deficiencies. You can also use IV therapy as a way of getting certain medications into your system. 

There are many formulas to use with IV therapy that include essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients like:

  • B vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Glutathione
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc

At Skin Shop medSpa, Dr. Su offers vitamin infusion blends to stimulate optimal cellular functioning. Because these vitamins and nutrients go straight into your veins, you don’t lose nearly as much of them as when you take oral supplements or get your nutrients through food. This means that you experience the benefits in full and nearly immediately. 

What should I expect during IV therapy?

At Skin Shop medSpa, you’ll start the IV therapy process by speaking with Dr. Su about your goals and the symptoms you’d like to alleviate. She then helps you select the blend of nutrients to use in your therapy. 

Dr. Su tailors each blend of nutrients and medications to each individual patient. Once she formulates your blend, you’ll sit in a comfortable recliner as she connects you to an IV bag filled with a mixture of saline and your nutrient blend. 

She finds a substantial vein in your arm and inserts the needle directly into it. The needle is attached to the fluid bag with a long tube. 

For 30 minutes to an hour, Dr. Su monitors you closely as the nutrients flow steadily into your bloodstream. Once the process is complete, you’ll notice an improved sense of wellness and a boost in energy. 

What can IV therapy treat?

IV therapy’s popularity has grown rapidly because of its wide range of health benefits. The nutrients in your IV drip can boost your energy, rehydrate you, and help with cellular regeneration and recovery. Specific ailments that IV therapy might improve include:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hangovers
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Anxiety
  • PMS
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Low immunity
  • Jet lag

In many instances, you can get all the energy and hydration you need through your normal diet alone. However, feelings of unwellness often stem from nutrient deficiencies or imbalances, and IV therapy is a quick fix.
