IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

During IV therapy, or drip therapy, your provider infuses fluids and vitamin B12 (or other vitamins and minerals) directly into your veins instead of you ingesting these nutrients.
IV therapy is a form of preventive medicine that acts quickly to rehydrate you, replenish vitamin stores, and rejuvenate your entire body.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

When choosing IV therapy at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness, you’ll reap numerous health and wellness benefits. Examples include:

  • More energy
  • Fast rehydration
  • Improvements in nutrient deficiencies
  • A stronger immune system
  • Detoxification and relaxation
  • Healthier hair, skin, and nails
  • Reductions in stress, depression, and anxiety
  • Memory enhancement
  • Fewer headaches
  • Balanced hormones

With IV vitamin therapy, you can avoid potential negative side effects, such as nausea and stomach upset, sometimes associated with oral vitamin and mineral supplements. Vitamin absorption is more efficient and faster with IV therapy vs. taking dietary supplements.

This IV may be used to help relieve symptoms of PMS. Patients have reported reduced bloating, irritability, abdominal discomfort and lower back pain when using this IV prior to or during “that time of the month”.

Designed to help kickstart your metabolism and feel more energized, this IV is designed to help burn fat, improve performance, boost metabolism and energy levels, and provide the nutrients needed for optimal wellness.

What should I expect during treatment?

Before infusion therapy, your nurse practitioner or naturopathic doctor at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness reviews your medical history and symptoms.

We review any bloodwork the client has had within six months. We may order basic and generally very inexpensive screening and lab tests if the client has not had any within this time frame to ensure the safety of this treatment.

During IV treatment, you sit or lie down in a comfortable, relaxing room. Your practitioner recommends a personalized IV drip for you containing combinations of vitamins like B-Complex, B-12, Vitamin C, amino acids, and minerals like magnesium, selenium, and zinc based on your unique needs.

We place the IV into a vein and slowly infuse fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream. We use a comfortable catheter so that patients can move their arm during treatment if necessary.

How often can I have IV therapy treatments?

The optimal frequency for your IV sessions can be determined with the help of our healthcare providers during your free IV consultation.

However, depending on your health or beauty goals, many patients come in either on an as-needed basis, monthly, or even as frequently two times a week. We offer package discounts for those who want to keep up with IV therapy on a regular basis.

How long does IV therapy last?

Your IV treatment most often will take 45-60 minutes and will depend on the condition of your health and the type of IV infusion you receive. Your provider lets you know what to expect and how long your appointment should last. We work around your schedule whenever necessary.

What happens after treatment?

There’s no downtime after IV therapy, so you can resume everyday activities right away. You might notice immediate improvements in the way you feel, with enhanced results appearing within the next few days or weeks.

Your doctor lets you know how often to schedule follow-up IV therapy sessions to maintain optimal health, increases in energy, and lower your risk of illness and disease.
