IV Hydration

What is IV hydration?

IV hydration is a therapeutic wellness treatment that can replenish various nutrients your body needs to function. During the treatment, an IV drip full of a saline base with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants goes into your vein to reach your bloodstream immediately. 

Because the nutrients go straight into your bloodstream and do not go through the digestive system, you can immediately experience the benefits. However, the specific benefits depend on the nutrients included in your IV bag, which your provider at Aesthetic Lab can help you choose. 

IV hydration is different from hydrating yourself by simply drinking water, and it’s different from getting the nutrients your body needs through food and oral supplements alone. The electrolytes help your body retain fluids while improving cell function and boosting energy. 

Which nutrients come with IV hydration?

You speak to your provider at Aesthetic Lab ahead of your IV hydration treatment to decide which nutrients or combination of nutrients belong in your IV bag. Your provider asks about specific concerns regarding your health and wellness and can select a formula based on your response.

IV hydration treatments frequently include:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Calcium 
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Glutathione

Saline is typically the liquid base for these nutrients, but Lactated Ringer’s is another option. Your provider can explain the benefits of the nutrients in your IV drip on their own and together. 

What are the benefits of IV hydration?

IV hydration offers many potential benefits that vary based on your formula's nutrients. A primary advantage of these treatments is that they hydrate you and improve symptoms of dehydration. Additionally, IV hydration can:

  • Boost energy 
  • Improve immunity
  • Improve pregnancy symptoms
  • Improve cold and flu symptoms
  • Alleviate a headache
  • Alleviate a hangover
  • Boost athletic performance and recovery
  • Improve skin health

You can get IV hydration as its own treatment for benefits like these, or your provider at Aesthetic Lab may decide to include it in your individualized weight loss management plan. In addition, IV therapy can help speed up your metabolism and give you plenty of energy for exercise.
