Vitamin Infusion Q &A
It all started when...
Are Vitamin infusions safe?
Yes, our infusions are very safe. These same ingredients are used in hospitals all over the world. There is always a slight risk of allergic reaction, however we screen all patients and monitor for this during the infusion. Should anything happen, our staff is equipped to handle it.
What are the Vitamin IV's made of?
The Vitamin IVs are no different than the IV's you would find at your local hospital. We use the same hospital grade ingredients and equipment with all our IV's
Should I get a Vitamin Treatment after partying or stress?
Absolutely. The vitamins and minerals in our IV's will help you with cellular rejuvenation and recovery. Whether you are feeling under the weather, fatigued from overexertion, or depleted from a night of partying, we can help!
How long does it take?
Our IV's generally take approximately 20-30 minutes.
Is there any potential reaction to receiving an IV while on other medications?
There are few medications that interact with the IV therapy. We conduct a comprehensive history in order to make sure none of our patients are on medications which could have a potentially negative interaction.
Do IV's cause bruising?
Bruises or hematomas happen when the IV punctures the vein and blood collects under the skin. Although not common, it is occasionally seen after the IV process. These effects usually recover, without complication, over time (within a few hours to days).
Is this process painful?
Everyone's pain threshold is different. While some people find needles to be relatively painless, others will find this process painful. While in no way is this procedure excruciating, we do have ways of making the process more comfortable. Feel free to inquire.
How often do I have to do it for it to be effective?
Depending on your nutritional demands, coupled with your hydration status, you may see dramatic effects after the first IV. People who get regular IV's will feel less pronounced effects as there body starts to obtain optimal balance of these deficiencies.
How often can I get one?
Most of our IV's contain nothing that the body can overdose on. Thus, If you are healthy, IV’s could safely be used on a daily basis. Realistically, most people do not put such high demands on their bodies where they would need daily therapy. For example, our most frequent dosage is usually a weekly program. In short, your IV therapy should be tailored to your body's demand.
Are there any side effects during IV process?
No major side effects are usually ever seen. Sometimes people report cooling of their arm or a metallic taste in their mouth. These are normal occurrences.
