IV drips are beneficial in many ways. It provides a faster way of delivering vital nutrients to the body. Vitamin deficiencies are a common phenomenon that can be affected by day to day life, and the stresses imposed on the body. Deficiencies can also cause dull skin, hair fallout, brittle nails, etc. External topical nutrients like creams, serums and soaps, among other products only provide temporary relief and don’t compensate for internal deficiencies. Furthermore, many oral vitamins and supplements have can have a low absorption rate while some can be harsh to your digestive system. An IV drip, on the contrary, provides better absorption of these nutrients so you can ‘glow from the inside out’.
The appeal of using IV drips and infusions for beauty is the quickness of delivery into the body and the results are almost immediate, unlike most procedures. Within 24 hours, one can see a visible difference in the skin’s quality and texture. The skin will be more hydrated and have the right nutrients to detoxify and rebuild. Other procedures are methodical like fillers and botox that can cause side effects and require post-care procedures. IV drips, on the other hand, is totally safe without much post care needed other than your regular skincare regime. Many actors and actresses use this method to prepare their skin before events and brides have found a fondness for this procedure to get glowing skin for their big day.

Diet is always the foundation for health. But getting an extra dose of certain key nutrients helps optimize your skin’s health and appearance.
Collagen is the answer to maintaining tight and firm skin, especially important when we reach the age of 40s-50s with declining hormones causing the skin to lose its elasticity and to sag. In addition, collagen helps maintain healthy joint function by maintaining the integrity of your cartilage, which protects your joints. It is also an important nutrient for maintaining good bone density as bones are made up of collagen.
Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in cells. It’s comprised largely of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. Glutathione is depleted when the liver has lots of oxidative stress from poor diet and nutrition or alcohol drinking which can lead to problems like fatty liver disease. The concentration of glutathione will also decline with age. Improving glutathione levels helps our body fight against oxidative stress and enhances our liver’s ability to detoxify toxins from our environment.
- Vitamin C
Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and can help prevent UV-induced skin damage. It is also essential in producing collagen. Deficiency can result in rough, dry skin and abnormal hair growth as well as poor wound healing and wrinkles.
A study of 56 patients taking vitamin A, C, E and procyanidins over 8 weeks proved the safety and effectiveness of this combined supplement for uneven and mottled skin pigmentation.
