    Trying an IV drip for the first time? Here’s what to know…

    Beauty

    by Sarah Joseph
    3 hours ago

    With flu season at its peak, the popular IV drips are known to boost your immune system and ensure an instant wave of energy.
    From alleviating hangovers to supporting weight loss and reducing the signs of aging, the purported benefits of intravenous (IV) therapy are as numerous as the vitamin and mineral cocktails available.
    As one of the most popular clinics in Dubai, Skin111 in Dubai offers a personalised approach to receiving an IV drip with an Oligoscan to determine the vitamins, minerals and toxins in the body.
    To understand how the concept of IV Drip Therapy works, Emirates Woman spoke to Dr. Jhon E Vargas, Internal Medicine Specialist at SKIN111 Medical and Aesthetic Clinic on how the process works.
    How does IV Drip therapy work?
    IV Drip Therapy involves the intravenous administration of a customized blend of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fluids directly into the bloodstream. This direct delivery method ensures rapid absorption and utilisation of these vital components in better concentration, bypassing the digestive system.

    What are the key potential benefits of IV drip therapy?
    The benefits of IV Drip Therapy are diverse and significant. Customers can feel immediate and effective hydration, vital for overall well-being and optimal bodily functions, it allows for maximum absorption and utilisation of nutrients, leading to improved energy levels, immune function, and overall health, accelerated post-workout recovery, reduced fatigue, and enhanced muscle recovery, it boosts the immune system, detoxifies the body, and promotes overall wellness with customized IV drip formulations and at Skin111 we use customized IV drip formulations designed to address specific health concerns such as hangovers, fatigue, weight loss, anti-aging and beauty enhancement.
    What are the different type of treatments one can receive? Is it advised to get a personalised one?
    IV Drip Therapy offers a range of specialised treatments tailored to individual needs. Some of the treatments include the Hangover Relief for rehydration and replenishment of essential nutrients to alleviate hangover symptoms, an energy Boost with the Infusions of B vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants for quick energy restoration and vitality, Beauty Enhancement with Glutathione IV drips, renowned for their antioxidant properties and skin rejuvenation effects, Weight loss/PCOS/Insulin resistance which targets metabolism and fat burning with specific nutrients and Anti-Aging Solutions with the NAD+ IV drips, emerging as popular anti-aging treatments due to their cellular rejuvenation benefits. Personalized IV drip formulations are recommended for optimal results. A thorough assessment by a healthcare provider ensures tailored treatment plans aligned with individual health goals and needs. Skin111 uses both diagnostic testing and Oligoscan technology to determine which IV ingredients are required by each patient, ensuring the most effective results.
    IV drips have been sold as hangover cures, energy boosters and even beauty enhancers. How have they developed over the years?
    Over the years, IV Drip Therapy has evolved from a basic hydration solution to a comprehensive wellness treatment. Originally utilized primarily in medical settings, it has transitioned into the wellness industry, offering a spectrum of benefits from hangover relief to anti-aging solutions. Advancements in formulations and techniques have significantly enhanced its efficacy and versatility. Providing tailored solutions as a preventive therapy or supportive therapy for particular conditions (chronic fatigue, detoxification of the body, regulate immune system).
    Glutathione is supposed to be the mother of all antioxidants and gives the skin a glow. – tell us more.
    Glutathione, often hailed as the “master antioxidant,” plays a pivotal role in cellular defense and detoxification. IV drips containing glutathione promote collagen production, reduce oxidative stress, and contribute to radiant skin health (whitening).
    How long do the benefits last after each session?
    The duration of IV drip benefits varies based on individual factors and treatment objectives. Immediate effects like hydration and energy restoration are typically experienced during and post-session. Long-term benefits, such as immune support or anti-aging effects, may require consistent sessions over time. The frequency of IV Drip Therapy sessions depends on specific needs and goals. For general wellness maintenance, monthly sessions are common. Athletes or individuals with intensive training regimens may opt for weekly sessions. A consultation with a healthcare provider ensures an optimal treatment schedule tailored to individual requirements.
    NAD+ IV drips is now considered a popular anti-aging treatment – how does it work?
    NAD+ IV drips, popular for anti-aging, work by replenishing NAD+ levels in cells. NAD+ supports cellular energy production, DNA repair, switch off bad genes and mitochondrial function, crucial for youthfulness and vitality.

    Are there any precautions to be taken before each session?
    Prior to each session, a comprehensive medical assessment is essential to determine the suitability of IV therapy. Allergy screenings, hydration status checks, and adherence to medical guidelines are crucial precautions. Post-session, monitoring for adverse reactions and maintaining adequate hydration is advised. As a safe therapy the side effects are uncommon, although it’s relevant to check with health care provider potential considerations before providing any IV drip.
    After a long week at work, we all need a quick energy fix – which drip would you recommend to our readers?
    For readers seeking a rapid energy boost after a demanding week, Skin111’s Ultimate plus IV drip infused with B vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants is recommended. However, personalized recommendations based on individual health profiles are paramount for optimal outcomes.
    How often should you receive IV drip therapy?
    The frequency of IV drip therapy varies based on individual health needs and treatment goals. Normally, at Skin111, we provide IV drips weekly, with a month maintenance every month in order to prolong the positive effects of the therapy. While specific health conditions may require tailored schedules under medical supervision.
