IV Therapy in Lone Tree and Aspen, CO
Intravenous (IV) therapy is growing in popularity as a way to get an effective dose of vitamins, minerals and fluids directly into the bloodstream. At Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics, we offer IV therapy in Lone Tree and Aspen, Colorado for both health and cosmetic benefits. If you feel like you could use an immune system boost, rehydration, help recovering from a surgery or illness, or just want to revitalize your skin, IV therapy may be for you.
What is IV Therapy?
IV therapy involves delivering liquids including vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and hydrating fluids directly into a vein. This allows them to immediately enter the bloodstream so your body can utilize them right away. This is far more efficient than consuming vitamins and nutrients orally, as the body cannot absorb 100% of the ingredients when they pass through the digestive system. As a result, IV therapy is a highly effective solution for quickly recharging the body with a variety of beneficial ingredients.
What are the Benefits of IV Therapy?
The benefits of IV therapy range from health benefits to cosmetic benefits. Some of the common reasons patients seek out IV therapy include:
- Rehydrate and recover electrolytes faster
- Boost immune system health
- Improve energy and fight fatigue
- Help with athletic performance and recovery
- Improve skin tone and complexion
- Alleviate symptoms of illness, stress or poor diet
- Aid in recovery after surgery
What IV Therapy Options Do We Offer?
Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics is proud to offer a range of IV therapy options that can provide you with a diverse selection of beneficial ingredients. We have different IV therapies intended for different benefits, such as hydration, recovery, immune system support, skin health, and more. During your visit, we can help you select an IV therapy treatment that will be most beneficial to you based on your treatment goals.
What is the IV Therapy Process Like?
The process begins with a quick and comfortable insertion of an IV line into your arm by our experienced medical staff. You can sit back and relax during the 30-60 minute infusion. The vitamins, minerals and fluids will slowly enter your bloodstream to get to work right away nourishing your body. After your infusion you can go about your day feeling re-energized and restored. In fact, patients typically begin feeling the effects of the IV therapy infusion before they leave their appointment!
How Long Does IV Therapy Last in Your Body?
The benefits from an IV vitamin therapy session can last anywhere from a few days up to a couple weeks depending on the ingredients included in your formulation. Here's what you can expect from the duration of various benefits:
The fluids from a basic IV hydration therapy will provide immediate hydration effects, but the benefits may only last 24-48 hours as the body continues to metabolize and excrete the fluids.
Vitamins & Minerals
Many IV therapies include important vitamins like vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium, calcium and more. These provide an immediate boost and elevated blood levels of the nutrients. However, once metabolized and excreted, levels will return closer to baseline within several days.
The antioxidant effects of a single IV treatment may last from a few hours up to a day or two. Some common antioxidants, such as glutathione, can help regenerate our bodies' internal antioxidant systems for longer-lasting effects. In these cases, benefits may persist for a few weeks.
Cosmetics & Skin Health
Formulations focused on skin hydration and anti-aging effects can last up to 2 weeks depending on the ingredients given. Hyaluronic acid provides hydration benefits for up to a week or more. Other common ingredients like Vitamin C and glutathione continue to neutralize skin cell damage over time.
How Often Should I Get IV Therapy?
While a single IV therapy treatment provides immediate benefits, most find it works best to continue with a regular series of treatments such as once a week or once a month. This allows the nutrients to build up to therapeutic levels in the body for both short and long term effects. Our team can advise on the ideal frequency based on your health and wellness goals.
