IV for Dehydration: How it Works

Our Normal Digestion Patterns

To understand why IV therapy is such an efficient solution for dehydration, you should know the complex process of how our bodies take in vitamins. Food and medications are either chewed or swallowed whole before enduring a long, complex process.

The nutrients must first reach the stomach and small intestine to start the digestion process. Enzymes within the intestinal tract break down the foodstuff into molecular pieces. With time, amino acids build protein.
These amino acids are then absorbed into the bloodstream, which carries them to the liver. The liver receives, processes (detoxifies), and transports nutrients back into the bloodstream.

The IV Therapy Process

With IV therapy, the minerals and vitamins that our bodies normally take a while to formulate are immediately infused into the blood.

6 Steps to Proper Hydration

You can expect your IV therapy treatment to involve steps such as:

  1. A conversation with your healthcare provider to determine the type and amount of IV fluids you need in your IV drip.
  2. A thorough cleansing and disinfecting of the area around the IV injection site (usually inside the elbow or on the back of the hand)
  3. An elastic band fits around your arm to contain blood flow in the proper area and help find a vein for insertion.
  4. A sterile needle will be slid into the vein before the elastic band comes off, and the tube is tested for proper delivery.
  5. Your healthcare provider will secure the IV needle in place, attach the bag of fluids to the tube, and begin the flow of fluids.
  6. As your treatment is happening, your provider will regularly check the IV line and monitor fluids entering your body.

Our highly trained and properly certified practitioners know how to calculate the right vitamin solution for your individual needs.

IV Drip Options at Dermatology Laser Center & Medispa

Rather than waiting for digestion and absorption, our team will use a customized cocktail of electrolytes and micronutrients in an IV drip to bypass digestion and help you feel better very quickly. While some patients opt for our classic Hydration Bag, which has no additives, others prefer a more complex combination of ingredients.
The Hydration Bag is $75 for 500ml or $99 for 1000ml. We also offer bi-weekly B12, MIC, and Chromium injections which are $50.

Benefits of Water Vs. IV Hydration Services

Water will provide some hydration benefits and should be consumed throughout the day. However, an IV drip for hydration introduces an abundance of essential vitamins and minerals that work more quickly and efficiently.
Both IV therapy and drinking water offer benefits to your body and mind. But when you need additional support and relief from dehydration symptoms, IV therapy is the rapid solution, getting you back on track faster than you would with water.

IV Hydration FAQ

What Does IV Therapy Do?

Whether for preventing or treating dehydration, IV hydration is the process of injecting fluids into the veins. It’s incredibly useful for all ages because it delivers micronutrients and electrolytes directly into the bloodstream. Anyone who is sick or has an injury or dehydration can benefit from intravenous rehydration. Not only can it help with mental clarity, but it can boost energy and assist muscle recovery.

Is IV Hydration Better Than Drinking Water?

IV therapy services deliver more nutrients than water can due to the potency of fluids. When you drink lots of fluids, your large intestine receives them first. Thus, it soaks up much of what you consume before the rest of your body gets anything. This process can take hours. Plus, excessive fluids can become more bothersome than you might think. Quickly consuming a lot of water can unintentionally sink your body’s sodium levels.

When Should You Use IV Therapy Services?

IV hydration is effective for:
  • Hangover cures
  • Migraine relief
  • Athletic recovery
  • Post-flight rehydration
  • Illness recovery
  • Spending too much time in the sun
  • Forgetting to drink water throughout the day
IV fluid treatments are loaded with a balance of vitamins, electrolytes, antioxidants, and sometimes even medications.

Is IV Therapy Good for You?

There are many good things about IV drips as a speedy way to receive hydration. For those who need extra hydration to efficiently perform tasks, using IV drips is the solution. It bypasses the whole digestive system tract for direct results.

How Long Does an IV Drip Last?

It’s important to remember that the benefits of IV drips are short-term. IV hydration is a safe and convenient quick fix, but you should regularly drink plenty of fluids, eat a balanced diet, and maintain a good exercise program.

How Can You Tell if You’re Dehydrated?

One of the clearest indications that you are not hydrated is a persistent thirst. Other signs of dehydration include:
  • Dry mouth
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Dark urine
  • Dry, blotchy skin
  • Fast breathing
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Less urination than normal
  • Dry eyes

How Long Does IV Hydration Last?

The fluids from your IV hydration stay in your body for a couple of hours. With that in mind, the nutrients and minerals that are within the IV fluids are present for days, weeks, and even months after your session.

What is IV Hydration Recovery Like?

Most patients don’t need recovery time after an IV drip. With that being said, your situation might necessitate some downtime. For example, if you came in for IV hydration therapy due to an illness, you might need to rest for your overall health. Our team will help you determine how to best navigate your recovery phase after IV fluids.
