What Can IV Therapy do For You?
IV Therapy & Antioxidant Effects:
One of the most popular uses of IV vitamin therapy is to cleanse a person’s cells with antioxidants. Nutrients such as vitamin C, selenium and glutathione are important antioxidants that protect your body against different medical diseases and help support low energy. Antioxidants are essential substances that prevent the oxidation of other molecules in the body. Oxidation of molecules can result in a wide range of diseases including cancer. Antioxidants are important in preventing disease and maintaining good physical and mental health!
IV Therapy & Hydration:
Many people, particularly middle aged and the elderly are chronically dehydrated and IV therapy is a very good way to rehydrate the body. Whether it’s after a late night out or after a vigorous workout, rehydration can shorten recovery times! According to many patients, they feel much more hydrated and refreshed after an IV vitamin drip!
IV Therapy & Skin Lightening/Brightening:
Many people strive to gain brighter-looking skin, but the battle to achieve an even skin tone can be tough. Genetic and environmental factors, can affect your natural skin colour and texture. For example, too much sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation, where areas of the skin develop unwanted brown spots or patches. At BC Orchard Aesthetics, we offer a highly effective treatment for the management of skin discolouration and pigmentation– glutathione IV (intravenous) infusions. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant, naturally present in the body, that inhibits melanin’s production. Since melanin is the substance responsible for pigmentation in the skin, glutathione can have a significant and positive effect on skin tone and colour.
