A flawless, glowing complexion – no matter how hard you try, it can be difficult to achieve. What is the secret to that lit-from-within glow? While a good skincare routine and proper sunscreen are important for maintaining beautiful skin, the answer may lie in lack of hydration. You can improve your skin, and many of your body’s systems, simply by being adequately hydrated. It is estimated that about 75 percent of the US population is chronically dehydrated.

What is an IV Drip?

An IV Drip is a specially formulated combination of vitamins, electrolytes, and essential nutrients designed to allow your body to function at peak performance. Each day you lose moisture through your daily activities. Beverages which contain alcohol or caffeine, high sodium consumption, and even the dryness of the air around you can sap your skin of essential moisture causing you to look older than you are. An intravenous (IV) drip of hydration which includes skin-boosting B vitamins and electrolytes can help you achieve a healthier, more radiant complexion.

What are the Benefits of an IV Drip?

You know you should take your vitamins to ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs to keep you healthy. Did you know that these same nutrients can give your skin bounce and radiance? Beauty begins at the cellular level. An IV drip can give your skin a boost with:

  • Vitamin B1 to aid in collagen production
  • Vitamin B2 assists your body’s natural healing processes, reduces inflammation, and helps to maintain the collagen you already have
  • Vitamin B3 naturally supports your body’s defense against sun damage and discoloration
  • Vitamin B5 helps your cells retain moisture
  • Vitamin B6 assists in controlling the production of sebum, the substance responsible for blemishes
  • Vitamin B12 gives your body’s immune system a boost, reducing the appearance of dryness, redness, and irritation

How Does Hydration Create Beautiful Skin?

Could great skin really be achieved with adequate hydration? In addition to allowing your body to function at peak performance, hydration has the following benefits.

  • Moisture, smoothness, softness. More than two-thirds of your skin is made up of water. This means that when your body is dehydrated, so is your skin. Drinking enough water gives your skin the moisture it needs to appear fresh and youthful.
  • Fewer blemishes. Giving your body proper hydration is key to helping flush toxins from your body. When you are adequately hydrated, your body can deal with the oils that contribute to breakouts.
  • A plumper complexion. When you are properly hydrated, your skin is plumper, fresher, and a more supple, naturally reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

When you add to that vitamins and nutrients which support skin-glowing benefits, you have a recipe for smooth, luminous skin.

Are Vitamin Drips Safe?

Absolutely! An intravenous infusion of hydration, essential vitamins and electrolytes, and minerals provides immediate relief for symptoms of dehydration. Traveling, intense workouts, and the occasional extra cocktail can all be detrimental to your body’s ability to maintain healthy levels of hydration. An IV drip can provide the relief your body craves, giving you more luminous, healthy skin. Our IV drip treatments are administered with ultimate attention to ensuring patient health and safety. Throughout our clinic, you can be confident that we follow the most stringent safety protocols in every treatment and procedure.

Your IV drip will take between 30 and 45 minutes. Once complete, you can return to your daily activities with a little extra bounce in your step and your skin!
