IV Therapy in Beverly Hills
IV therapy is an exciting treatment that helps facilitate faster post-surgical healing. During this treatment, our experienced staff administers nutrient-rich therapies designed to promote healing after surgery.
During the treatment, a high-concentration of fortifying vitamins are delivered directly into the bloodstream. Though each patient will receive a treatment that is unique to his or her needs, most IV therapies involve the use of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids – compounds essential to proper healing after surgery.
Post-Surgical IV Vitamin Therapies
Though it can be used to treat everything from the common cold all the way to certain cardiovascular conditions, IV therapy is especially useful when applied in a post-surgical setting.
After undergoing a medical procedure, your body may need additional help in order to heal properly. With extra nutrients and vitamins provided intravenously, patients can expect to heal faster and with fewer complications.
For example, when recovering from any type of wound, collagen (a natural substance produced by the body) provides structural integrity and support for the skin. Vitamin C is a compound that stimulates and increases the amount of collagen produced by the body. During the treatment, Vitamin C and zinc (another compound related to collagen production) are used to promote the production of collagen, resulting in faster and more effective healing of body tissues.
Why is IV therapy better than vitamin pills? After surgery, your body will require over 100 times more vitamin C than usual, and IV vitamin therapy has been shown to be more effective in the healing process than orally-ingested vitamins.
IV therapy is also shown to have few or zero side effects. When it comes to your health, why settle for anything less than the best?
What to Expect During Your Treatment
While many people are nervous that IV therapy may be painful or uncomfortable, it is actually quite relaxing and comfortable. Once you arrive at your luxurious and peaceful surgery recovery room in Los Angeles, our experienced staff members can bring the IV therapy treatment right to you. Over a period of 15 to 90 minutes, various nutrients, vitamins, and amino acids will be delivered directly into the bloodstream.
During this time, patients will be able to enjoy our numerous amenities. Patients will be free to relax, watch television, read a book, listen to music, or simply enjoy the peaceful surroundings, all while being closely monitored by a nurse. Once the infusion is complete, a nurse will gently remove the catheter. Depending on each patient, a series of treatments may be required, but they are all as comfortable and relaxing as the first therapy treatment.
