IV Drip Q & A
What is an IV drip?
An IV drip is an outpatient procedure that delivers vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream.
When nutrients enter your body intravenously (through a needle and into a vein), they bypass your digestive system, allowing for greater uptake by your cells. That process allows you to reap more nutritional benefits than taking vitamins or supplements orally.
What conditions can benefit from an IV drip?
The providers at Downtown Medspa use IV drips to treat various conditions, including:
- The common cold
- The seasonal flu
- Brain fog
- Migraines and headaches
- Lack of energy
- Low immunity
You might also benefit from an IV drip if you’re an athlete or physically active individual and you want to speed up your body’s recovery process after a competition.
What are the types of IV drips?
The providers at Downtown Medspa offer several types of IV drips, including:
The Myer’s Cocktail
The Myer’s Cocktail is the “gold standard” of IV drips. It was pioneered during the 1960s and contains nutrients like vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium. The providers at Downtown Medspa use the Myer’s cocktail to treat various conditions, including fatigue, hangovers, and the common cold.
Immunity therapy is a group of IV drips designed to support your body’s immune system. By supporting your immune system, it’s possible to reduce the risk of illness, enhance your focus, and encourage a healthy metabolism.
After a review of your medical records and a discussion of your goals, your provider at Downtown Medspa can recommend an immunity IV that aligns with your needs.
Get-Up and Go
The get-up and go is an IV drip formulated to increase energy, help you burn fat, and speed up your metabolism. If you want to lose weight or enhance your athletic performance, this is the IV drip for you.
What does getting an IV drip involve?
At Downtown Medspa, the providers administer IV drips onsite during a brief outpatient appointment.
After determining the type of IV drip that will most benefit you, your provider has you sit or lie down in a comfortable reclining chair. Next, they clean and sterilize your arm and carefully insert a needle into a vein.
The needle connects to a catheter attached to an IV bag. The bag contains a drip with vitamins and minerals that slowly feeds into your bloodstream. While you receive the drip, you can read, take a nap, or listen to music. Once the drip finishes, your provider removes the needle, applies a bandage, and sends you home.
