What is IV therapy?
If you’ve ever spent time in a hospital setting, you’re likely already familiar with intravenous (IV) therapy. This approach uses a needle to place a thin medical tubing directly into a vein on your hand or wrist while the opposite end connects to a bag containing saline.
This apparatus allows health professionals to administer medications directly into your bloodstream, where they work immediately without having to go through your digestive system. IV nutrition therapy uses the same approach to deliver an instant hydration boost and customized nutrient blends into your blood.
What are some benefits of IV therapy?
You can certainly meet your daily nutritional needs through food sources alone. Doing so, however, requires extensive time spent on meal planning, shopping, food prep, cooking, and clean-up. For many busy adults, hitting those recommended nutritional levels daily is incredibly challenging.
IV nutrition therapy offers the chance to give your body a boost of carefully blended nutrients safely and effectively. Some IV therapy benefits include:
Since a majority of people go through most days in a state of mild dehydration, IV therapy provides immediate improvements by delivering instant hydration effects.
Is IV therapy a painful process?
All this talk of needles and blood may make you believe IV therapy is a painful experience. In reality, the highly skilled practitioners at Ardmore Aesthetic Solutions make these treatments not only painless but relaxing, too.
There is no significant pain, although you may feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your skin. You can listen to music, scroll on your phone, read, or just relax during your treatment sessions, which take less than an hour.
Once all the nutrients in your treatment bag have entered your body, your practitioner quickly and gently removes the IV device. You’re not likely to feel anything except for removing the small surgical tape from your skin.
