  • How do IV drips work?

    Intravenous (IV) drips are inserted directly into the veins through a catheter. This way, the solution from the IV can be applied directly to the bloodstream, where the body can immediately start making use of it.

    The IV setup includes a metal rod, a bag full of saline solution, and the catheter. The catheter transfers the contents of the saline solution—which is full of vitamins and nutrients—to the body. What makes IV therapy different from taking an oral medication or vitamin is that it completely skips the gastrointestinal tract. This means that 100% of the solution is absorbed by the body.

  • Will it hurt?

    There will be some slight pain when the catheter is inserted, but our professional medical team will be there to help make the experience as comfortable as possible. There should not be any pain once the catheter is inserted and the treatment begins.

  • What’s in an IV formula?

    The components of an IV formula vary depending on what kind of treatment you receive. All IVs, however, consist of saline solution and supplements.

    Saline solution is a sterile mixture of sodium chloride and water that hydrates the body and provides an efficient means of transferring medication and vitamins. Supplements include vitamins, antioxidants, and medications. The exact supplements supplied in an IV formula change from treatment to treatment.

  • Is IV therapy safe?

    IV therapy is a widespread and very safe medical procedure. Like any medical treatment, there is always a chance that something could go wrong, but it is very rare. At InfuseLife, all of our treatments are administered and supervised by accredited nurses and doctors. We take patient safety very seriously and ensure all treatments take place in sterile environments.

  • What are the benefits?

    There are many benefits to IV therapy depending on which treatment you receive. This is a highly efficient means of delivering vitamins and nutrients to your body. While you get many essential nutrients from food, these have to be processed by the gastrointestinal tract before they are absorbed into the body. With IV therapy, all of the nutrients are absorbed directly by the bloodstream.

    Some benefits of IV therapy include:

    • Hydration
    • Improving overall health and wellness
    • Boosting the immune system
    • Boosting energy levels
    • Stress relief
    • Strengthening bones, muscle, and tissue
    • Improving skin and hair
    • Improving athletic performance
    • Hangover relief
  • Is IV therapy used to prevent or treat illnesses?

    Both! IV therapy can boost your immune system when you’re healthy and help your body fight off germs and bacteria when you’re sick. Many people have experienced relief from cold and flu symptoms after receiving IV therapy. However, if you have a serious illness, you should only consider IV therapy as a complement to your primary treatment.
