In­tra­venous ther­apy

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Beauty -

No longer just for de­hy­dra­tion, iron de­fi­ciency or a bad hang­over, in­tra­venous ther­apy is in­creas­ingly pop­ping up on clinic treat­ment menus. The ben­e­fits of in­ject­ing a con­cen­trated vi­ta­min so­lu­tion straight into the cir­cu­la­tory sys­tem are ob­vi­ous: it’s fast, has a bet­ter ab­sorp­tion rate than sup­ple­ments, and of­fers quicker re­sults. Plus vi­ta­mins can be cock­tailed to treat a va­ri­ety of con­cerns: vi­ta­min C boosts the im­mune sys­tem, B vi­ta­mins en­hance en­ergy, and vi­ta­min D3 en­cour­ages cell re­pair. Fol­low­ing a con­sul­ta­tion, a cus­tomised so­lu­tion will be ad­min­is­tered through a nee­dle in the arm. Tem­po­rary side ef­fects might in­clude a dry throat or nau­sea, but there’s no down­time – you can book a treat­ment dur­ing your lunch break since ses­sions take as lit­tle as 30 min­utes.
