Whatever skin condition you want to treat, whether you are looking to combat dull and pigmented skin, exhaustion, aging skin, or any other skin problems, vitamin infusion therapy can help.

What is Vitamin Infusion Therapy for the Face?

Vitamin infusion is a skin treatment that targets multiple facial skin concerns by delivering a high dosage of beneficial vitamins to the skin. It’s non-surgical and minimally invasive and it often contains vitamins A, C and E along with others. Vitamin A has a regenerating effect on the skin, vitamin C improves collagen production which helps heal and hydrate the skin and vitamin E helps with inflammation and boosts sebum production.

What Does IV Therapy Do?

This is a technique that delivers essential nutrients to your bloodstream. When taking vitamins orally, these go through the digestive tract, which means that only a fraction of the vitamins are absorbed. By skipping the digestive tract entirely, your body absorbs more of the nutrients and maximizes the benefits.

Facial infusions have a unique combination of antioxidants, minerals, vital fluids, and vitamins. This treatment can be useful for all skin types. It improves the appearance of aging skin, acne scars and boosts skin health. Gravity allows the solution to gradually enter the veins as the IV bag is raised above the patient’s head.

How Long Do Treatments Take?

Typically an IV facial treatment can take from 30 to 90 minutes, but it’s best to plan for it to take around two hours, since everybody has a different absorption rate and different requirements.

What Can IV Treatment Improve?

An IV treatment has à myriad of benefits. It can help regulate your sleep cycle, which is not only good for your skin, but for your overall health, and decrease eye puffiness.

It can also help fight wrinkles and give you a more even skin tone by preventing the damage caused by UV exposure. Apart from that, it can hydrate your skin. While moisturizing is important, hydration comes from the inside, IV therapy can instantly hydrate your skin.

It can reduce signs of aging and enhance the overall appearance of your skin as well as encourage growth in your hair and nails.

How long do vitamin infusions on the face last?

How long the benefits last will depend on a variety of factors. Your age, metabolism, your diet, lifestyle, and overall health all play a part. At first, it may only last around three days, however, with consistent treatments your vitamin levels will normalize and you’ll be able to decrease the frequency of treatments while maintaining the benefits.

What to Expect

It’s a very straightforward procedure. The solution added to an IV bag connected to a tube that is attached to a small needle. It’s injected into a vein and the bag is hung above your head. This is completely painless. You’ll feel some light pressure when the needle is first injected, and then you’ll barely notice it’s there at all.

With the help of gravity, the solution drips slowly down the tube and into your bloodstream. At this point you simply wait. You can spend the time relaxing. Read a book or a magazine, listen to music or a podcast, you can do anything you want as long as it doesn’t involve you getting up.

During the procedure, someone will be available in case you need anything or have any questions. Once the treatment is done, you’ll be able to see an improvement immediately. After 30 to 90 minutes, the needle is removed and you can go on with your day as per usual. 

Risks and Side Effects of IV Therapy

Though there are some possible risks involved in IV therapy, most of them are minimal if the treatment is administered by a qualified professional.

Some of the things to keep in mind when considering an IV therapy treatment are:

  • Make sure it’s being administered by a qualified professional
  • To much of certain vitamins can be harmful, make sure you discuss the correct dose for you with your doctor so they can customize your treatment, making sure your vitamins levels are where they should be
  • If you suffer from kidney disease or have any heart conditions, your body may not be able to process vitamins at high concentrations in  a short amount of time.
  • Remember that IV therapy is not a replacement for a healthy diet or lifestyle.

  • An infection at the site where the needle was injected
  • Rashes
  • Bruising and inflammation
  • Blood clots and air embolisms

It can improve your skin’s appearance and boost your overall health, plus it’s fast and efficient. The best way to maximize the benefits from vitamins and minerals.
