What is the purpose of IV therapy?
As a kind of therapy for the body, IV therapy can help it function properly and optimally. During the therapy, a patient hydrates their body and supplies it with the nutrients it needs and might not be getting enough of. Another possibility is that the body just isn’t absorbing nutrients efficiently enough. The purpose of IV therapy is to properly and thoroughly hydrate the body and help compensate for a nutritional deficiency.
There are other methods for hydrating and nourishing the body, like oral supplementation, but IV therapy has some significant benefits over them. For example, IV therapy delivers nutrients right into a patient’s bloodstream where they get carried throughout the entire body and are absorbed very efficiently. The other big benefit of IV therapy is that it hydrates the body thoroughly and efficiently too. This is especially beneficial for a patient with chronic dehydration. There can be additional benefits of IV therapy, like less fatigue during the day, less lethargy, better sleep at night, faster jet lag recovery, and greater production of red blood cells. For athletes, there’s another possible benefit of a faster recovery time.
Is IV therapy safe?
It’s very safe for most patients, yes. Like with any kind of IV treatment, there’s a minor risk of infection. There’s also a minor risk of blood clots, and it’s important that patients don’t receive too much of certain vitamins or minerals, as some of them in excess can have harmful effects. Generally, IV therapy is safe, and for you, the benefits may outweigh any of the potential minor risks. Before considering IV therapy, it’s important to have a consultation with a proper professional like one of ours here at La Vie MedSpa.
How long does IV therapy last?
A treatment session is easy and takes only about 45 minutes, then you’re done and you can enjoy your regular activities right away! As for the effects of IV therapy treatment, the noticeable effects will last for 3 to 4 days, and after that, even if you don’t notice the effects, you’ll still be experiencing clinical effects. After the effects wear off, just get another treatment done. Weekly, biweekly, or monthly treatments will work for you, depending on your health and lifestyle needs. Here at La Vie MedSpa, we’ll help you make a fully educated decision about how to proceed with IV therapy. Come see us for a consultation!
