IV Therapy

Regular IV therapy treatments help you optimize your health and well-being by providing direct and efficient delivery of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream.

What is IV Therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy, also known as intravenous infusion, is a treatment that involves delivering fluids, medications, or nutrients directly into a person’s bloodstream through a vein.

This method allows for rapid and efficient absorption of substances, bypassing the digestive system, and ensuring they reach their intended targets in the body quickly.

Delivering vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients to the body.

In recent years, IV therapy has gained popularity as a wellness and rejuvenation treatment. IV infusions can quickly deliver vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream, potentially providing various health and wellness benefits.

What to Expect During Vitamin Injection

At The IO Clinic, our wellness experts will work with you to determine the most appropriate type of IV Therapy to meet your wellness goals. 

Once you’re ready to start IV Therapy, our medical team will place a small plastic tube called a catheter directly into your vein via a needle. We use a numbing spray to make this comfortable for you. Once your vein has been accessed, the needle is removed but the catheter stays in place for the duration of the treatment (30 to 60 minutes).

The catheter is attached to a single-use, clear bag that contains your chosen IV infusion which moves slowly through the catheter into your vein, directly into your bloodstream. It is usually painless and once the infusion is complete, the catheter is removed and you can go on with your day.

The benefits of IV Therapy

A variety of IV infusions contain different mixes of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Common nutrients used in these infusions include vitamin C, vitamin B complex, magnesium, zinc, and glutathione. The belief is that these nutrients can support overall health, boost energy levels, improve immune function, and promote healthy skin.

IV therapy can be used to help individuals quickly rehydrate and recover after intense physical activity, jet lag, or a hangover. The direct infusion of fluids and electrolytes can alleviate symptoms of dehydration and replenish the body’s essential nutrients.

The IO Clinic has created specialized IV infusions that support healthy aging by providing the body with nutrients that support collagen production and skin health. Antioxidants in these infusions may also help counteract oxidative stress and cellular damage.

IV therapy can support the body’s natural detoxification processes by providing nutrients that support liver function and help flush out toxins.

Some IV infusions are formulated to assist with weight loss efforts by providing nutrients that may help boost metabolism or support fat burning.

Recovery and Beyond

We offer the latest in full-body cellular-recovery technologies, such as LightStim LED Treatments, Hyperbaric Oxygen, and IV Therapy. These are of particular value to surgical patients, and we’re happy to make them available to everyone, in the same building as the L&P Aesthetics plastic surgery office and med spa in Palo Alto.

The procedure involves inserting a sterile catheter into a vein, usually in the arm. Once the catheter is in place, the fluids or medications can be infused into the bloodstream at a controlled rate. It should be administered by trained healthcare professionals, like those at The IO Clinic.

Occasionally, The IO Clinic and L&P Aesthetics offer specials on treatments, services, and even skincare products. Visit L&P Aesthetics to see what we’re offering this month!
