What is IV Vitamin Therapy?
When a person receives an IV vitamin treatment, they’re receiving a liquid mixture of vitamins and minerals through a small tube inserted into a vein. This allows the nutrients to be absorbed quickly and directly into the bloodstream, a method that produces higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your body than if you got them from food or supplements. This is because several factors affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach. Factors include age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other products we consume, and the physical and chemical makeup of the nutritional supplement or food. Higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your bloodstream leading to greater uptake into cells, which theoretically will use the nutrients to maintain health and fight illness.
Who are the Best Candidates for IV Therapy?
At Dr. K’s Beauty, we believe that anyone can be a great candidate for IV Therapy. If you have been looking to improve hydration, boost your mood, increase your energy, support your immune system, improve skin quality, decrease the effects of migraines or hangovers, combat chronic fatigue, or just get an overall boost in your feeling of wellness, IV Therapy may be perfect for you!
What are the Benefits of getting IV Therapy?
One of the main benefits of intravenous treatment is that nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream. Intravenous treatments, therefore, are exceptionally powerful because they circumvent issues with oral administration, including stomach upset, absorption issues, and loss of potency. In addition, since the nutrients are infused directly into the bloodstream and avoid the gastrointestinal system, very large doses can be administered without gastrointestinal side effects which can limit dosing. A perfect example of this is vitamin C, which can only be taken in fairly small amounts orally before causing stomach upset. In contrast, very large doses of vitamin C, which can be very beneficial for the immune system, can be administered safely and without stomach side effects with an intravenous delivery route.
How is IV Therapy Administered?
Variations of IV therapy have been prescribed by doctors and administered by qualified nurses for over a century. It’s a quick and efficient way to deliver fluids or medication into the body’s circulation. During an IV vitamin treatment, a pharmacist will usually mix the solution per the doctor’s orders. A qualified nurse will access a vein and secure the needle in place, which could take a couple of attempts if the patient is dehydrated. The nurse will then monitor the vitamin infusion to ensure the rates of vitamins and minerals are administered properly.
Immunity Drip IV Therapy
Drip IV therapies Immunity Drip is formulated to maximize the immune response of your body and protect it, so you can keep working hard and enjoying life. This Drip contains a high dose of vitamin C and zinc, which both have a critical role in your body’s detox and natural defense system. Receiving these key nutrients through IV therapy enhances their absorption, delivering them directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the need to be digested and then absorbed. You will feel the effects of the Immunity Drip working immediately.
What to Expect on the day of getting IV Therapy?
When you come in for your IV Therapy, Dr. K will begin by sterilizing and preparing your vein for your infusion. The IVs that Dr. K uses are exactly the same medical-grade equipment that can be found in a hospital, but rather than a clinical experience, IV infusions are calming, relaxing, and refreshing. Depending on which infusion you choose, you can be finished in as little as 30 minutes. Our staff will ensure that you are comfortable, calm, and cared for throughout your treatment.
We highly recommend that you eat prior to receiving your IV therapy in order to benefit the most from your treatment and to help avoid any possible nausea.
IV Therapy Recovery
You should feel some immediate, positive effects following your IV Infusion. After the administration, our patients leave feeling energized, refreshed, and are able to return to their normal schedule.
What Dr. K. Thinks About IV Vitamin Therapy
“I believe that IV vitamin therapy is a valuable treatment option when provided by a medical professional and that it works for many patients. I’ve worked in conjunction with several vitamin infusion doctors and their patients, and have seen the results that they’ve experienced. For many people, the management of chronic dehydration and healthy skin is a great boost to their quality of life. The research in regards to vitamin therapy is limited at this time, but I suspect more research will be performed and released in the upcoming years about the benefits of IV vitamin therapy.”

Are there any risks associated with IV Treatments?
Even the most routine procedures are not without any risks. The risks with intravenous therapies are considered low, especially when performed by highly educated and experienced personnel. The risks associated with a general procedure such as IV Drip Therapy would include blood clots, vein irritation, and vein inflammation, all of which could be painful. On rare occasions, air embolisms can also be introduced through an IV line, which, when they happen could cause a stroke. During therapy, infusions should be carefully monitored ensuring fluid drip occurs at the right place. Running the drip too quickly increases the risk of fluid overload, which could affect electrolyte balances and damage the kidneys, brain, and heart. It is, for this reason, IV drip therapies should only be administered by trained medical personnel. We are trained to manage these medical devices and administer treatments in this manner. When performed by professionals, such as those at Dr. K. Beauty in Las Vegas the risks of any of these occurring are considered extremely rare.
How long will the results last?
While IV Therapy can fluctuate between patients, on average a typical treatment can remain in your system and maintain your levels for 2-3 weeks.

Dr. K was fabulous. She was very informative on the areas I needed fillers in and what would work best for me. I saw immediate improvement and am so happy with the results. I will definitely return and also refer her to my friends/family. I’ve been a resident of NV for 18 years and have yet to find an injector I like. I’m thrilled to have finally found one. She’s a keeper.
