A Boost of Nutrients for Enhanced Health and Wellness

IV therapy delivers fluids, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients directly into the bloodstream through an IV drip. IV hydration bypasses the digestive system so nutrients are absorbed by the body more quickly and thoroughly than fluids or supplements taken orally. IV therapy in Costa Mesa can address conditions ranging from stress, fatigue, and dehydration to chronic illness. 

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy administers fluids and nutrients directly into the vein. It hydrates and revitalizes the body by enabling it to access water and nutrients faster through the circulatory system. We offer IV therapies with a balance of electrolyte fluids and customized doses of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to relieve a range of symptoms and boost your ability to function from day to day.

Does IV therapy hurt?

IV therapy treatments are virtually painless. A healthcare professional will insert a cannula (thin, hollow tube) into the vein, usually in the crook of the arm. Most patients feel a slight pinch as the needle enters the vein.

Then a tube is attached with an IV bag of fluids that drip down the tube directly into the vein. Fluids and nutrition are customized to suit your needs. IV therapy in Costa Mesa takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes.

Does IV therapy require any downtime?

This treatment is nonsurgical and minimally invasive. There is no downtime with IV therapy. After treatment, you will be ready to return to work or your normal activities. It may be a good idea to avoid strenuous activities for 12 to 24 hours after treatment to allow your body enough time to absorb the nutrients. Most people feel the beneficial effects of the therapy immediately after treatment. These noticeable effects can last for several days. 

IV therapy FAQs

How effective is IV therapy?

IV therapy is very effective. It delivers essential nutrients, antioxidants, amino acids, and fluids directly into the bloodstream. When vitamins are taken orally, only about 50% are absorbed into the system. With IV administration, they are absorbed in a much higher percentage of approximately 90%. This allows you to feel the effects of the vitamins and nutrients more quickly.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

We customize the IV therapy in Costa Mesa to your body and unique needs, so you get the perfect mix of fluids, electrolytes, vitamins, and antioxidants to help you feel your best. For example, IV hydration therapy can be focused on the following:

  • Overall wellness
  • Boosting metabolism

    Most people are good candidates for IV hydration therapy, as it can be customized to meet the needs of the individual.

    How often can I have IV therapy?

    How frequently you can receive IV therapy will depend on your needs and desired outcomes and the type of treatment that is prescribed for you. Our doctors can tailor a treatment plan that suits your individual needs.
