What can I expect?
If you have ever been hospitalized, had surgery or been to the emergency room, you’ve probably received intravenous (IV) infusion therapy. We start by accessing a vein with a small IV cannula and then connect it with tubing to a bag of fluids – typically, normal saline 0.9% which is isotonic and well-tolerated by virtually everyone. We can then customize an infusion based on your specific needs and goals. Some patients choose just to receive a bag of saline to improve hydration status, but most choose a skin brightening or wellness infusion blend.
Some of the ingredients in our wellness infusion include:
Patients who choose IV therapy often include those who have done weight loss programs with medications such as semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy) or tirzepatide (Mounjaro), phentermine, Saxenda or other medications, or even after bariatric surgery (gastric sleeve, gastric bypass or duodenal switch). We also offer IV push medications along with our infusions to address other symptoms you might be experiencing, such as ondansetron (Zofran) for nausea, famotidine (Pepcid) to decrease stomach acid, dexamethasone (Decadron, a steroid) to reduce inflammation, and ketorolac (Toradol) for pain.
