Introduction to IV Therapy

If you’ve had that feeling like you’re lacking energy or having difficulty focusing on simple tasks, your body may be imbalanced and could be in need of serious revitalization. Statistically, most people don’t nourish their bodies correctly, which can negatively impact their health and external appearance because of malnutrition and dehydration. Thankfully, our patients can receive their Philadelphia IV drip treatments in a short amount of time to help compensate for a hectic lifestyle and suboptimal nutrition. Keep reading below to learn more about how IV Therapy from Subbio Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa can improve your lifestyle.

What is IV Therapy?

IV Therapy is an extremely effective and efficient form of rehabilitative treatment that utilizes an intravenous drip that injects fluids of medication into the patient’s bloodstream.

When a person receives an IV vitamin treatment, they’re receiving a liquid mixture of vitamins and minerals through a small tube inserted into a vein. This allows the nutrients to be absorbed quickly and directly into the bloodstream, a method that produces higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your body than if you got them from food or supplements.

Factors such as age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other products we consume, and the physical and chemical makeup of a nutritional supplement or food, can affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach. Higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your bloodstream lead to greater uptake into cells, which then use the nutrients to maintain your health and fight off illness.

While the results from IV Therapy can fluctuate between patients, a typical treatment can remain in the body’s system and maintain your levels for two to three weeks.

What’s the First Step?

If you could benefit from IV Therapy in the Philly area, your first step is to contact our office and schedule your consultation with one of our talented and knowledgeable aesthetic team members. When you come in for your appointment, you will meet with your providers who will discuss your goals for this therapy and go over each of the infusions that they believe will be best for you. They will also ask you questions about your medical history and lifestyle to tailor your IV “cocktail” to meet your needs, as well as avoid unnecessary risks.

Once the two of you have decided on the best infusion for you, your treatment plan will be made and you can have your infusion performed that same day. If for whatever reason you would like to reschedule, our Patient Coordinator will help you find the best date and time for you.

What to expect on the day of an IV Therapy treatment

When you come into our practice for your IV Therapy, we will begin by sterilizing and preparing your vein for your infusion. The IVs that we use are the same medical-grade equipment that can be found in a hospital, but rather than a “stressful” clinical experience, IV infusions are calming, relaxing, and refreshing. Depending on which infusion you choose, you can be finished in as little as 30 minutes. Our team will ensure that you are comfortable, calm, and cared for throughout your treatment.

We highly recommend that you eat before receiving your IV therapy to benefit the most from your treatment and to help avoid any possible nausea.

IV Therapy recovery

Once complete, you are free to go and resume your daily activities. Recovery is paired with an amazing feeling when it comes to IV Therapy. Since the IV cocktails are comprised of mostly saline water, this refreshed feeling occurs because your body is the most hydrated it’s been in a while. While this initial sensation will wane over a few days, your body is pumping the vitamins and minerals to the parts of your body that have depleted levels.

If your purpose is to boost your energy levels, the effects of IV infusion therapy can be noticed within four days to two weeks after treatment as your body absorbs the mixture fully, offering a smooth recovery and a clear mind.

How much does IV Therapy cost in Philadelphia, PA?

The cost of IV Therapy in Philadelphia will vary depending on the IV cocktail, the number of sessions you are looking to have, and if you add any boosters, among a few other factors. The best way to learn how much your treatment will cost is to come in for your consultation and discuss what you’re looking to achieve with your provider.
