You are likely already familiar with IVs in a hospital setting. However, more and more patients are opting for IV therapy in an outpatient setting to complement their efforts to look and feel their very best.
IV vitamin hydration infusions, such as the famous Myer’s Cocktail, are intended to rehydrate and replenish the body as efficiently as possible. Because IV therapy bypasses the digestive system, it is a faster and more effective treatment approach than oral supplementation.
Glow works to revitalize the body in a way that specifically supports the systems and processes involved in giving the patient a “glowing” look and feel. Are you interested in IV hydration therapy but are unsure if Glow is an exact match for you? Our experts can speak with you about our other proprietary IV infusions, such as Classic, Primetime, Perform, and Detox, and help you select the right option for your needs.
Glow is a treatment infused into the body through an IV and is primarily aimed at repairing damage from free radicals, or unstable atoms in the body. As we age, the body’s ability to perform natural functions gradually diminishes, allowing free radicals to accumulate. Free radicals can compromise cellular health and function and cause an increase in the common visible signs of aging.
Glow contains essential antioxidants to eliminate free radicals, as well as other beneficial ingredients for the body like N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC), amino acids, Arginine, B Vitamins, Vitamin C, and more. Glow is often used to stimulate collagen production and reinvigorate the body to:
On the day of your procedure, we ask that you drink plenty of water and eat a healthy meal or snack before coming in. While it may not seem necessary for hydration therapy, drinking water prior to treatment is actually helpful to make your veins easier to locate. Many patients also find that eating before IV therapy is beneficial to quell any slight feelings of nausea or lightheadedness that may occur.
You are welcome to bring something to keep you occupied during your session, such as a book or headphones. We also recommend wearing a short-sleeved shirt for simpler access to the infusion site.
When you arrive at our West Hollywood IV Lounge for your IV therapy session, you’ll be seated in a clean and comfortable treatment area, so you can relax while you receive care. One of our highly trained experts will begin by inserting a sterilized needle into a vein in your arm.
The Glow formula will drip from an IV bag, through an IV line connected to the needle, and into your bloodstream over the next 20 to 60 minutes while you read or stream your favorite show on your phone.
Recovery time is not necessary after a Glow IV infusion, so patients can proceed with their regular schedule. The rehydrating effects of a Glow treatment are typically felt as soon as during your session, with optimal Glow result timetables varying depending on the patient.
Repeat sessions are recommended to accomplish the greatest degree of improvement. We can create a personalized treatment schedule for you during your consultation.
To enhance your skin even further, Dr. Emer can advise you regarding how to boost your results by combining Glow IV hydration therapy with one or more of our other cosmetic treatments and/or Spa and Aesthetic Services. Glow IV infusions are frequently suggested to maximize the effects of procedures like:
