IV Hydration Therapy: What is It?

Are you in need of a re-set? Whether you are feeling tired or want better looking skin, IV hydration therapy is here to help. As one of the newest offerings at Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, IV hydration therapy is designed to help you feel more like yourself with treatment. If you are curious about the newest treatment we offer and if it is right for you, this guide is the best place to start.

What is IV Hydration Therapy?

IV hydration therapy uses IVs like the ones found in hospitals to help you feel better. Many people turn to it for a number of reasons, including feeling lethargic, wanting to recover faster, or even just searching for relaxation methods. You will have a catheter inserted into your veins, which will help deliver vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream as opposed to drinking water or other fluids or taking vitamins that go through the stomach and may not provide as much absorption.

Types of IV Hydration Therapy

Overall, there are many different types of IV hydration therapy available. Many times, treatments are tailored based on your individual needs. That being said, one of the most common types we use in our office is the Myers IV. This type is great because it helps a wide range of people. The IV uses different vitamins and minerals and the entire process typically takes about an hour from start to finish.

Treatment Benefits

Many times, your body’s functioning systems can be a little off from feeling normal. If this is the case, IV hydration therapy can help. Firstly, now that it’s summer, you may enjoy a night out with friends and have a little too much to drink. Instead of dealing with hangover symptoms, visiting Cincinnati Plastic Surgery for your IV can help. Next, just like an IV you’d receive in the hospital, our IVs help with re-hydrating you and can help with flushing your system of toxins. Finally, if you’re looking for a way to relax, this treatment is the best way to do it.

Can I Have At-Home Treatments?

While it is possible to do your own treatments at home, it’s not recommended. Because you have to put a needle in your vein to receive the fluids, it’s best to have a medical professional do it. Otherwise, you could end up with infections or, at the very least, poke yourself too many times and cause unnecessary pain. We regularly offer the IV treatments in our office, so make an appointment to help feel better.

Whether you want healthy, glowing skin or need a re-set from being sick, IV hydration therapy can help you feel better overall. And with it being one of the newest offerings from Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, you know the best place to go.
