5 Benefits of IV Infusions

Are you looking for an instant boost to your skin and overall health? IV infusions are the fastest way to deliver beneficial minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants straight into your bloodstream. Unlike supplements that have to travel through your digestive system — leaving you with very few bioavailable substances — IV infusions give you a boost within minutes. 

IV infusions have been safely used for decades in hospitals to aid patients suffering from dehydration and deficiencies, but celebrities have also made IV infusions popular for skin health, anti-aging, and weight loss. 

Want to find out more about this new approach to health and wellness? Below, our team at Skin Deep Laser MedSpa would like to share a few benefits of IV infusions, so you can decide if they’re right for you. Here are five things that IV infusions can do for your body.

1. Combat tiredness and eye puffiness 

A B12 IV infusion can help regulate your sleep cycle and combat puffiness in your eye area. If you don’t have the time to cook nutritious meals or if you’re stressed out, your B12 levels can drop. A B12 deficiency can lead to chronic fatigue, a lower red blood cell count, and a weakened immune system.

B12 infusions are popular among professional athletes, who need help to sustain prolonged periods of training, as well as vegans.

2. Help prevent UV damage and possibly fight wrinkles 

Glutathione is an antioxidant with many uses. Physicians use glutathione IV infusions for preventing heart disease, diabetes, and liver disease. However, growing evidence suggests that this substance may also help prevent aging signs and treat pigmentation.

A 12-week study found that glutathione reduced wrinkles and pigmentation caused by sun exposure. 

3. Give your skin instant hydration 

If you don’t drink enough water and you drink coffee at least twice a day, you may still be dehydrating your skin.

Hydration comes from the inside. Moisturizers can help, but they’re a short-term solution. However, IV infusions made with electrolytes and saline can give your skin an instant glow that lasts for days. 

4. Address nutritional deficiencies

Since the late ‘60s, the Myers’ Cocktail IV infusion has been the gold standard for treating nutritional deficiencies in hospitals. This cocktail contains many essential vitamins and minerals that boost your overall health and wellness within minutes. 

5. Accelerate weight loss 

The Skinny Shot is an IV infusion that boosts your metabolism by using a cocktail of essential vitamins and amino acids. 

The stars of this IV infusion are the vitamin B complex and inositol. B12 helps you stay energized while cutting calories and working out, and inositol reduces your appetite and regulates your insulin, the fat-storing hormone.
