IV Therapy

Tailored infusions to energize, revitalize, rejuvenate and nourish

Modern life comes with many conveniences, but also its fair share of stressors. In today’s fast-paced world, balancing work, personal responsibilities and self-care often feels like an uphill battle. The constant juggle leaves us depleted, struggling to keep up with the demands of our daily lives.

In these times, it’s crucial to find effective and convenient ways to replenish our energy and maintain our well-being. IV therapy can be precisely that.

IV therapy enhances your body’s natural processes by providing it with the tools it needs to function at its best. During an IV infusion, your body receives fluids and critical nutrients that give you that much-needed edge to thrive. Whether you’re looking to enhance and facilitate your recovery post-laser or surgery, boost your energy, strengthen your immune system or simply give your body a dose of wellness, IV therapy offers a targeted and efficient solution.

What Is IV Therapy?

IV therapy is a method of delivering vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This direct infusion ensures that your body receives the full benefits of the treatment, without the limitations of oral ingestion.

An IV drip consists of three components: an IV bag containing fluids, a hollow needle and a long, flexible tube that connects the bag to the needle. During a session, the small needle is inserted into a vein (typically in an arm) and a customized blend of ingredients is infused gradually into your body. The experience is safe, comfortable and even relaxing — all you need to do is rest until the infusion is complete!

What Are the Benefits of IV Therapy?

IV therapy is on the rise, but it’s not a trend or gimmick. IV therapy allows you to take a proactive approach to maintaining optimal health, as well as address specific health concerns as they occur. The versatility of IV therapy makes it a valuable tool in anyone’s wellness gameplan.

Some of the key benefits include:

  • Rebalances your body by addressing deficiencies
  • Rapid and efficient nutrient absorption
  • Quick onset of benefits
  • Custom drips to ensure you get what your body needs
  • High-quality ingredients are pure and concentrated for maximum effect
  • Convenient yet effective way to support your overall health

How Do IV's Compare to Oral Supplements?

Nutrients are nutrients — does it matter how you get them? The short answer is yes! IV delivery offers benefits that oral supplementation does not.

Oral supplements must pass through your digestive system before they can be used by your body. During this process, they can lose a considerable amount of their effectiveness due to breakdown of the nutrients and limited absorption capabilities. In contrast, IV therapy delivers the nutrients directly into your bloodstream, ensuring nearly 100% bioavailability.

Fast-tracking nutrients into the bloodstream also means IV therapy produces more rapid results than oral supplements. Your body can use IV nutrients almost instantly. Oral supplements, however, have to be broken down and absorbed, delaying their effects.

For those with specific deficiencies or absorption issues, IV therapy can be a more effective method for quickly correcting imbalances. Each IV cocktail can be customized to address specific health concerns or goals, a level of precision that mass-produced oral supplements can't match.

Furthermore, IV therapy allows for the administration of higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals than what might be feasible or safe to consume orally. Some people experience side effects like gastrointestinal distress from oral supplements, especially at high doses. IV therapy bypasses the stomach so that higher doses of nutrients can be used without the associated digestive side effects.

“IVs are not new to medicine. In the 1970s, Dr. John Myers developed a formula containing B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium and calcium that became known as the ‘Myers’ cocktail’. It’s still in use today, both on its own and as the base for more complex IV formulas.”

— Dr. Burns

Is Any Preparation Required Before an IV Infusion?

There is little to do before your Dallas IV therapy appointment. We recommend drinking plenty of water leading up to your infusion, as hydration helps prime your body for the IV nutrients and facilitates smoother vein access. It can also be helpful to have a nourishing meal before your treatment to prevent light-headedness during the infusion.

Dress with your comfort in mind. Wear something that offers easy access for the IV placement and that you can easily relax in while the drip takes place. Bringing some form of entertainment, like a book or podcast, can make your experience more enjoyable. Our treatment rooms are designed to be peaceful spaces where you can unwind while receiving your IV therapy.


What Should I Expect During My IV Treatment?

Upon arrival at Resurrect Skin MD, you will be greeted by our friendly staff and walked through the treatment process. Our goal is to ensure that your IV therapy session is not only beneficial for your health but also a rejuvenating experience.

To prepare for your infusion, we will conduct a brief assessment of your health history and wellness goals, and answer any questions you may have. This helps us select the appropriate IV cocktail and sets the stage for a smooth infusion process.

You will make yourself comfortable in a treatment chair and a provider will insert the IV line, usually into a vein in your arm. This process is typically quick and causes minimal discomfort. Once the IV is in place, you can relax, read, listen to music or simply enjoy a quiet moment while the infusion does its work. The duration of the infusion varies but typically lasts 45 to 60 minutes, and sometimes up to 90 minutes.

After the infusion is complete, we will remove the IV line and ensure you’re feeling well before leaving. We’ll provide any necessary post-treatment advice and schedule follow-up treatments if needed.


Will There Be Downtime After My IV Infusion?

After your IV treatment, you should feel revitalized and ready to continue with your day. Most patients experience no side effects that prevent them from returning to work, exercise or other daily activities immediately.

While uncommon, some patients experience minor bruising, redness or soreness at the site where the IV line was inserted. These side effects are typically mild and quickly resolve on their own. If you feel any unexpected discomfort or have concerns following your treatment, listen to your body and contact us. Our team is available to offer any guidance you may need.

We recommend continuing to stay well-hydrated after your treatment. Proper hydration helps maintain the benefits of the IV infusion and supports overall health.

“By integrating IVs into our comprehensive care plans, we're able to amplify the benefits of our treatments and help our patients build a foundation of health. Our goal is always to ensure that our patients don’t just look their best, but truly feel their best inside and out."

– Dr. Burns

When Can I Expect to See or Feel Results?

Immediately following an IV infusion, many patients experience a surge in energy, a sense of enhanced mental clarity and an overall feeling of revitalization. These effects can be felt for several days, and sometimes even weeks, after the treatment.

Depending on what we are addressing with your IVs, you may also experience longer-term benefits. Goals such as improved skin health, enhanced immune response or relief from chronic fatigue are met best with a series of regular treatments so the benefits can build on each other, leading to prolonged and enhanced results. This is especially true when IV therapy is integrated into a comprehensive wellness plan that includes other healthy lifestyle choices.


How Often Should I Have IV Infusions?

Your treatment plan will be tailored to your goals. IV therapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, and neither is the frequency of your treatments.

In general, individuals seeking to maintain general wellness or prevent future health issues may benefit from monthly IV infusions. This regular schedule can help keep your nutrient levels optimal and your immune system robust.

For addressing particular health challenges, the recommended regimen can vary. Serious or chronic conditions may benefit from a more frequent treatment schedule initially. Isolated events, such as jet lag or a hangover, can be treated with individual infusions as needed.

Our team will work with you to create a personalized treatment schedule that maximizes the longevity of your infusions’ effects, ensuring that you continue to feel your best long after you leave our clinic.
