What is IV therapy for hydration?
At our IV bar in Gig Harbor, we provide IV therapy for hydration. If you are feeling dehydrated and need to give your body a boost, schedule your appointment today. Patients can become dehydrated from:
- excessive physical activity
- alcohol consumption
- nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
- after surgery, illness, or infection
- due to excessive heat
Dehydration occurs when your body loses more fluids than it takes in. With water dehydration, more water is moving away from your cells than is being delivered. This can be a very serious and fatal issue if it’s not addressed in time.
How does it help?
An IV for hydration is a fast and effective way to offset dehydration.* With IV therapy for hydration, nutrients are delivered directly to the bloodstream where they can be delivered to all the parts of the body where they are needed the most. IV therapy can reduce the severity of your symptoms, which can include:
- Dry mouth, thirst
- Decreased urination, constipation,
- high heart rate
- skin wrinkling
Hydration therapy provides normal saline as well as IV vitamins to help you look and feel better. It is one of the best and fastest ways to replace lost electrolytes. IV vitamin therapy has been around since the 1970s. By administering nutrients to the human body via direct injection into the bloodstream, it is much more effective than taking a pill or consuming nutrients from food. It is a great way to significantly increase that amount of vitamins in your body.
How is it performed?
- During the treatment, you will not feel any discomfort.
- At most, patients feel a pinprick from the needle at the injection site.
- Once the injection is made, your session can take 20-60 minutes.
- The exact time will depend on the amount of nutrients that are prescribed.
- During your appointment, you can either rest or use your phone.
- We want you to feel comfortable, so feel free to bring a book or anything else you wish to entertain yourself with.
At Nouveau Medspas, Dr. Rubin will oversee everything and will make sure that you get the exact amount of nutrients you need.
How can I tell if I am dehydrated?
Dehydration can be very dangerous because it will often creep up on people. It can occur in both hot and cold climates, and just because you are thirsty, it doesn’t always mean that you’re dehydrated.
Aside from the symptoms listed above, you can also detect dehydration by observing the color of your urine. If your urine is a very dark yellow, you may be dehydrated. Drinking water will help to lighten the color. You should be careful, however, as there is such a thing as too much water. If you hydrate your body with water too quickly, you can actually risk the depletion of your sodium levels, which is very dangerous. Sodium leaves the body through the urine, so you will lose more of it if you urinate frequently.
