Customized skincare is taking over our beauty cabinets, and we couldn’t be happier –or so we thought. With advancements in technology and and breakthroughs in science, our personalized skincare regimens just got a little more biological. Medical IV vitamins are becoming a popular treatment for those looking to ditch the vitamins for an easier pill to swallow. Haute Beauty sat down with board-certified expert Dr. Jeffrey Baker to discuss how IV vitamins work, how soon patients can see results and the perfect cocktail for glowing skin and growing hair.

 

How do personalized Medical IV vitamins work?

Every person is unique!  Each person has a different diet with a different metabolism and absorption capabilities. Through your own bloodwork, we can determine what your vitamin, mineral, and amino acid levels are. From there, we find out exactly what supplementation you need in order to be your most optimized self.

We also look at your biological age verses your chronological age through your blood work using your Telomeres, which are part of your DNA and shows longevity in life.  A customized treatment plan is then created to your body’s needs.  IV vitamins work by infusing vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream. This results in maximum absorption and utilization from your body compared to taking oral supplements or intramuscular injections. It’s the perfect pick-me-up along with optimizing your overall biological wellness.  This is not the typical Meyer’s cocktail that has been the raved in Miami but more individualized to each person’s systemic and metabolic needs.  My staff calls it the B-Up IV therapy (Up in your energy, focus, health, metabolism, mood, and so much more).

 

How soon can patients see results?

Patients usually see results as early as the same day! Most have reported feeling more alert and even energized. They have also reported feeling the effects for the weeks to come.  For patients that have advanced medical conditions, they will feel immediate effects as well but may need more IVs to maintain the levels.

 

Who qualifies for this procedure?

Anyone! Its a great option for anyone who needs a vitamin boost with good general medical health to those who have been diagnosed with other medical conditions.  If you are lacking energy and need a little boost in your day-to-day activities, it’s the perfect option to consider.

 

How long does an IV session last?

Since this is an in office procedure, it usually takes anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes.  After a medical evaluation and review of the patient’s conditions, I would formulate an IV that is catered to that patient.  Some infusions may be as short as 10 minutes and others may take up to 45 minutes.

 

Can patients opt for a cocktail vitamin IV therapy? If so, what are their options?

They can! There are options even if you are sick. We can infuse immune boosters to help  fight off illness.  If you have weight loss goals, there is a vitamin IV therapy designed to speed up your metabolism. We also have post workout IV therapies for athletes or anyone looking to get the most out of their workout. This reduces soreness, improves endurance, and promotes efficient energy consumption.  There is an IV for Beauty and Hair as well to help promote glowing of the skin, lessening of fine lines, and increasing the growth of hair through stimulation of the follicles.
