IV Nutrition Therapy Overview

Experience the incredible benefits, and improved wellbeing, provided by IV nutrition therapy. 

Since the 1960s, medical practitioners have been using Intravenous Vitamin Infusions with remarkable results. The ingredients used within Intravenous Vitamin Nutrition Therapy (IVNT) are vitamins, minerals and water otherwise classified as ‘Essential nutrients’. These are essential for life, however, they are nutrients that the body is not able to synthesise on its own. Traditionally they are found in the food we eat, but a deficiency in vitamins or minerals can lead to a cascade of health problems and a decline in your general wellbeing, such as poor hair, skin, nails, extreme tiredness, and fatigue among many others. By supporting the replacement of these essential nutrients, you are able to help restore your body to its peak fitness and maximum energy performance.

With IVNT, the nutrients enter the bloodstream directly and immediately. Much higher concentrations of nutrients are delivered directly to the body’s cells through intravenous therapy, allowing the body to better absorb and utilise these nutrients.

How Can IV Therapy Lighten My Skin?

The colour in your skin occurs from the production of melanin and greater melanin production means darker skin. The antioxidants used in IntraVita's Skin Brightening IV Drip have been found to inhibit the production of melanin. On top of this, they also contribute to speeding up cell turnover, replacing the damaged cells – that give a dark appearance to the skin – with new cells.

A recently discovered benefit of glutathione is that it may be an alternative way to lighten the skin on your face and body. This powerful antioxidant is known to eradicate free radicals, and as a result, can be very beneficial to the appearance of your skin.

Skin Brightening Can Help With:

  • Dark spots from acne scarring

  • Sun-damaged skin

  • Hyperpigmentation and Melasma

  • Uneven skin

  • Freckles

  • Skin blemishes

  • Ageing skin

  • Liver spots

Treatment Overview

First, you will receive a consultation with our registered injector nurse to ensure you are suitable for intravenous therapy. If deemed suitable for the IV nutrition therapy, you will be able to have the drip administered at the same time as your consultation. 

During the appointment, an intravenous drip is used to deliver the specific vitamins/minerals directly into the bloodstream. Having the nutrients intravenously ensures maximum absorption avoiding the digestive system (in contrast to be taken orally) therefore nourishing at the cellular level.

The actual procedure takes approximately 30-60 minutes, where you can just sit back and relax and allow the IV vitamins to enter your system.

Aftercare

When the infusion is complete, you will already start to feel better in yourself. Please take some time post-treatment, for example, don’t do any strenuous exercise. Our registered nurse will provide aftercare advice, and answer any questions or queries you may have.

The recovery time is usually up to 24 hours post-procedure. It is highly recommended that the client follows the post-procedure recommendations to avoid complications or infection. It is recommended that you avoid smoking after the procedure.

Results

Results are very patient-dependent, so we cannot guarantee a specific outcome.

However, during your consultation with our registered nurse, she will assess your suitability and be able to offer an estimation of what results you could expect and the possible duration of your Skin Brightening programme.

We already receive highly satisfactory feedback from patients that are committed to their prescribed treatment programmes.

Maintenance

Results are not permanent; once you have attained the skin tone you’re hoping to achieve you will be a prescribed a bespoke maintenance programme to follow. The duration of your Skin Brightening programme can vary and will be discussed in your consultation.

In terms of maintaining your results, it can help to avoid the factors that increase antioxidant levels in the skin. This means avoiding smoking, poor diet and misuse of alcohol, stress, bad sleep patterns and environmental toxins. Obviously avoiding excessive sun exposure is also a must.

Risks and Side Effects

Our Skin Brightening IV Drip contains antioxidants that are naturally found in your body, and you can increase your levels of these by consuming certain foods such as garlic, onions, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, so the side effects you could receive from intravenous therapy are highly unlikely.
There may be bruising where the drip has been inserted but this will fade and is usually minimal. Other side effects that are short term may include headaches and dizziness; if you are prone to this, we advise you to allow additional time to stay at Lissom Spa & Beauty so we can monitor your wellbeing.

Your Skin Brightening treatment programme will be carefully monitored, both to oversee progression and to ensure your safety and wellbeing. The exact dosage administered will vary from patient to patient and will be individually tailored to your needs after a thorough discussion of the results you’re hoping to achieve.
