What is vitamin therapy?

Vitamin therapy uses an IV to delivery key nutrients, amino acids, antioxidants, hydration, and electrolytes to your body’s cells to improve your mood, health, and wellness.

How does vitamin therapy work?

You can receive either a vitamin shot or vitamin drip to infuse your body with needed nutrients so your body can perform its best. Individuals in a hurry prefer the shots; however, if you are energy or nutrient-depleted, we recommend a vitamin drip.

Why should I get vitamin therapy?

Vitamin drips are more effective than oral supplements because oral drugs are not fully absorbed due to the GI tract. With a vitamin drip, nutrients are delivered immediately to your blood and are absorbed fully. You will notice an immediate improvement in overall mental and physical function.

What are the benefits of vitamin treatments?

There are many benefits of vitamin therapy. It can help to boost your immunity, regain mental focus and energy, boost metabolism, rebuild muscles, provide hydration, reduce healing time, reverse effects of aging, increase energy, and help you destress and relax.

What is the difference between a vitamin injection and a vitamin drip?

IVs provide hydration, take between 30 and 45 minutes, and deliver nutrients quickly. IVs are ideal when you are sick, tired, or hungover, as they provide 10 times as many vitamins as a shot. Shots do not provide hydration, take less than a minute, and deliver vitamins to last you a week. They are great for general maintenance!

How long does vitamin therapy take?

An IV infusion can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the IV you choose. We have a variety of vitamin and IV fluids sizes to pick from. After one of our highly skilled medical professionals inserts your IV, you will have a thin plastic catheter in your vein to deliver the nutrients. A shot takes about a minute as the needle injects vitamins into the muscle to deliver nutrients to the muscle fibers. A push uses your IV to deliver vitamins over 10 minutes.

What is a push?

A push is a concentrated dose of vitamins delivered by the IV in your vein. A push does not provide hydration.

Does vitamin therapy hurt?

The IV insertion may be slightly painful; however, it will only last a few seconds. The infusion itself will be painless. With the shot, you will feel a pinch and then some pressure. It will be over before you feel much!

Is there any downtime from vitamin therapy?

No downtime is required with vitamin therapy! You can return to your normal routine! Many people love to exercise after their treatment due to the increase in energy!

Are there any risks with vitamin therapy?

Complications are rare but can include bruising or pain at the injection site. If you have had many IVs in the past, there is a small risk of scar tissue forming in the vein from overuse.

Can you overdose on vitamins?

At Skin Works Medical Spa, only water-soluble vitamins are used. These vitamins are absorbed by the body, and any extra is eliminated by the body. There is a limit on vitamin therapy by IV because too much fluid can be dangerous.

When will I see results?

Individuals usually begin feeling better within a few minutes and feel the effects within a few hours and up to one week after treatment.

How often should I get vitamin therapy to have great skin?

If you are looking to lighten your skin tone, our high dose Glutathione and Vitamin C drips may be able to help. We recommend that vitamin therapy is used as needed. Most individuals purchase packages of 6 or 10 treatments in order to maintain their health.

How often can I get vitamin treatments?

We recommended that vitamin drips are used as needed when you are tired, sick, hungover, or just feeling bad. If you are sick and require extra fluids, you may receive up to 2 liters of fluid over one week. If you are looking for regular treatments, we recommended no more than one IV per week. We recommend no more than two shots per week.

Can I get vitamin therapy when I’m sick?

Who cannot receive vitamin therapy?

Vitamin therapy is not used for children under 16 or patients undergoing cancer therapy. Individuals with extremely high blood pressure or kidney failure may not be candidates for IV vitamin therapy; however, they are still candidates for vitamin shots.

What is vitamin skin nutrition?

Vitamin therapy involves injecting vitamins into the body via a push, shot, or IV drip in order to get the nutrition your body needs to feel better, heal faster, increase mental and physical performance, and improve skin quality. When conventional vitamin supplements don't work the way you want them to work, visit Skin works Med Spa in Torrance and get revived with our vitamin treatments.

How did vitamin therapy come to be?

In the 1980s, Dr. Myer’s studied a large number of individuals suffering from common conditions. He developed and tested a “cocktail” of vitamins that were added to a saline drip. The cocktail worked wonders and helped improve the wellbeing of thousands of these individuals, helping them perform better and improve their health over time. Current vitamin therapy is used for the same reasons with amazing results!

Why is vitamin therapy better than oral supplements?

Vitamins are not absorbed well in the GI tract. With injectable vitamins, key nutrients are delivered to the body for immediate absorption.

How long does it take for vitamin therapy?

It depends on the route of vitamin administration. A shot can take less than 5 minutes while a push takes 10 to 15 minutes. IVs take an average of 25 to 45 minutes, depending on the amount of fluid administered.
