IV Therapy: What You Need to Know
While IV treatments have long been in use in emergency rooms, hospitals, and urgent care facilities, IV therapy is becoming increasingly popular as an elective treatment which suits a variety of uses. At Laser Skin & Wellness we do not offer IV therapy to treat any chronic or serious condition. We use IV therapy as a highly effective way to deliver vitamins, nutrients, and other supplements to the body helping to boost the patients’ own immune system.
What Makes IV Therapy Different?
IV Therapy is a method of delivering various supplements, such as key vitamins and medications, to the body. Introducing these supplements directly to the bloodstream means that they are 100% absorbed and immediately available to the body, maximizing their benefits.
Many patients who try IV therapy are also happy to find that it is much more comfortable than an IV administered in a traditional hospital setting. IV therapy treatment uses a smaller butterfly needle, which causes much less discomfort than a traditional IV needle.
Vitamin C IV Therapy
Vitamin C is extremely beneficial for the body and found in many foods such as citrus fruits like oranges or lemons. However, only about 18% of the vitamin C you take in through food or oral supplements in absorbed. While for most people this may be sufficient, it’s not uncommon for people to face health concerns that can improve by increasing vitamin C.
Vitamin C IV therapy is most commonly administered to alleviate side effects of chemotherapy, but the benefits of this treatment extend beyond these patients. Increasing your intake of vitamin C can help to boost your immune system, fight fatigue, improve your skin’s health and appearance, and more. This makes it a great option for anyone facing stress or who is looking to increase their immune response.
Glutathione IV Therapy
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant which consists of three amino acids: glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. It works to protect your body from disease and injury by removing free radicals. Glutathione is ineffective when ingested orally because the stomach’s enzymes break apart the bonds between its three amino acids, which is why glutathione IV therapy is the best way to introduce this antioxidant.
Glutathione IV therapy is beneficial for patients with more severe health concerns including heart disease, cancer, dementia, epilepsy, and more. However, it is also beneficial for those who aren’t necessarily facing a significant health concern but still wish to improve their health, as glutathione is beneficial for immune health, energy levels, and improving the health and appearance of your hair, skin, and nails. It can also improve signs of aging, which are often caused by cell damage from a higher concentration of free radicals.
