IV Therapy

If you are someone who struggles with migraines, low energy, allergies, or even muscle pain and haven’t found a treatment that can provide you with long-lasting relief, you may be lacking a few essential vitamins. Luckily, IV therapy can help, and at the Plastic Surgery Center of DallasDr. Rachel Walker is proud to offer this treatment to patients in Dallas, TX.

What Is IV Therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a medical technique that involves administering fluids directly into a vein through the use of an IV drip. This can be useful for delivering water, medication, blood, or nutrients directly to a patient’s bloodstream, allowing them to access the body faster than through the regular circulatory system. IV therapy is a common practice used by medical professionals in healthcare, but more recently, IV therapy has been effective at providing essential vitamins to patients who are deficient in them.

What Conditions Can IV Therapy Treat?

IV Therapy focuses on the delivery of water, blood, nutrients, and vitamins to help improve a patient’s overall wellness and boost their immunity. As a simple, safe, and common procedure with a very low risk of complications, it can help treat the following health conditions:

  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Lupus
  • Chroon’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Migraines
  • Immune deficiency
  • Asthma
  • Angina
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Muscle spasms
  • Chronic pain
  • Allergies

IV Vitamin Therapy can also help improve the following symptoms of vitamin deficiency:

  • Dry skin
  • Fatigue
  • Breathlessness
  • Memory trouble
  • Anemia
  • Hair loss
  • Muscle pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of energy

Who Is the Ideal Candidate for IV Therapy?

Ideal candidates for IV Therapy are those who experience chronic symptoms from a health condition and can benefit from receiving medication to their bloodstream at a faster rate than by taking medication orally. However, because IV Therapy is commonly used for vitamin therapy, it can also benefit anyone who may be lacking vitamins. They may experience any of the above-mentioned symptoms of vitamin deficiency.

Contraindications to IV Therapy

Although IV Vitamin Therapy is safe and effective for most people, this treatment is contraindicated for patients with kidney disease, high blood pressure, heart conditions, or any other health condition where the organs may not be able to handle receiving high concentrations of vitamins at once. Anyone who is currently pregnant or breastfeeding may not qualify as a candidate for IV therapy. It is important to consult with your doctor before receiving IV Therapy to prevent electrolyte imbalance and receiving too much of any vitamin or nutrient during treatment.

What Are the Benefits of IV Therapy?

IV therapy can provide several benefits for improving your mental and physical health, as well as your overall wellness. These benefits can include:

  • Hydrating your body which can lead to healthier skin
  • Improving your athletic performance or the ability to participate in physical activities
  • Eliminates brain fog
  • Improves concentration
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Restore essential vitamins and nutrients to the body
  • Increasing energy levels
  • Improving bad sleeping habits

Are There Any Risks with IV Therapy?

While IV Therapy is a generally safe and effective treatment, it can still cause several side effects. These side effects include pain, bruising, redness, itching, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects are all common when an IV is used to deliver liquids through the bloodstream.

Although rare, IV Therapy may also come with more serious risks, such as:

  • Infection
  • Collapsed vein
  • Vitamin overdose
  • Electrolyte imbalance
  • Hematoma
  • Swelling
  • Phlebitis
  • Thrombophlebitis

At the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas, Dr. Walker will ensure during your consultation that you are qualified for IV Therapy. Her analysis of your medical history and current health status will help minimize the risks during your treatment.

What Is the Cost of IV Therapy in Texas?

The cost for each IV Therapy session may range from $50 to $200. However, we are happy to work with all patients to find the best financing option available for you.

How Long Is the IV Therapy Procedure?

IV Therapy can take anywhere between 15-90 minutes to complete. The infusion from IV Therapy can usually last several hours after absorption.

When Will I Begin to Feel the Results of IV Therapy?

Most patients can feel the results of IV Therapy within 24 hours, seeing improvements in their vitamin deficiency symptoms. An increase in energy, ability to concentrate better, and improvements in the appearance of their skin as well as other benefits, can continue to be felt anywhere between four days to two weeks after their IV Therapy treatment.
