It can sometimes feel like a full-time job just making sure your body stays healthy and receives all the nutrients and hydration it needs. After all, your body is a machine—a highly complex and dynamic one, but a machine all the same. And like most tools and machinery, your body requires constant care and attention to continue performing, feeling, and looking its best. Vitamins, minerals, micronutrients, amino acids, hydration, antioxidants, and electrolytes are just a few of the many nutrients your body requires daily to look, feel, and function optimally. Luckily, there are simpler ways to ensure your body gets what it needs than obsessively tracking your micronutrient intake. IV nutrition is one of the most direct and effective means of delivering essential nutrients to your body at once, without the need to juggle countless bottles of vitamins, supplements, and powders.
What Are IV Infusions, and How Do They Work?
Vitamin IV therapy and IV infusions allow various critical nutrients to be administered to the body intravenously. When vitamins and other essential nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the digestive system, where many nutrients get lost and are not absorbed. With IV infusion and vitamin injections, nutrients and minerals can go to work, instantly replenishing and revitalizing your body and organs from the inside out.
When nutrients are able to bypass the digestive system in this way, you can be assured that you are receiving the nutrients your body needs, no essential vitamins or minerals are being overlooked in your diet, and that your body and organs are properly absorbing the vitamins and minerals you need. This method is especially beneficial for people experiencing digestive complications or irregularities, who may struggle with the natural absorption of certain nutrients and vitamins. While it is always important to choose foods rich in nutrients, it does not always mean that those vitamins and minerals are reaching your body to the fullest. Additionally, vitamin IV therapy allows larger quantities of vitamins to enter your system than can be safely tolerated orally. The “concentration gradient” allows these vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed rapidly and efficiently and to transfer nutrients directly into your cells, yielding optimal results.
What to Expect from an IV Infusion Therapy Session
All IV infusion therapy and vitamin injections are administered from the comfort of our office here at French Radiance Esthetics. The exact length of an IV therapy session varies depending on the type of infusion selected by each patient, as well as how many injections are administered. Vitamin injections can usually be administered fairly quickly, but infusion therapy usually takes a little more time.
You may feel a slight pinching sensation caused by the needle around the site of the injection, but you should not feel any irritation or negative effects after the injection is complete and should be able to walk out of the office and go about your day feeling great.
Everyone will feel the effects of IV infusion therapy a little differently. What you experience after a treatment will depend on the specific drip chosen and your specific body composition. However, nearly everyone enjoys the benefits of IV infusion therapy almost right away, as your body is able to absorb the nutrients immediately. You may need to schedule several sessions to create a longer-lasting effect and more thoroughly cleanse and treat the body.
Is IV Injection Therapy Safe?
IV therapy has many benefits to its users. There are no known risks involved with the body’s ability to absorb a high concentration of vitamins and nutrients. However, there are a few minor risks associated with the needle injection itself. Some of these risks and side-effects are comparable to those of having blood drawn for a lab test or having an IV administered during a hospital procedure.
As with any similar procedure, there is a small risk that a vein wall could be perforated or ruptured by the needle due to vascular fragility. This can result in fluid leakage to the surrounding area and may temporarily cause slight swelling or bruising around the site of the injection; you may also experience a slight burning sensation surrounding the needle, which will dissipate when the IV is moved to another vein. If you have small or hard-to-locate veins or have experienced any previous difficulty with other intravenous injections or getting blood drawn, you may not be a good candidate for IV infusion.
