Why IV Hydration Therapy drips and how does it work?

People use IV Hydration Therapy drips for a variety of reasons. Some people use them as an alternative to taking medicine orally because the IV drips get the drugs into the body quickly and are more effective at providing relief from pain, nausea, or other symptoms (B12, Glutamine, Magnesium). Other people use them to receive fluids and nutrients when they are unable to drink enough by mouth on their own. They are most commonly used to provide hydration and electrolyte replacement.




100% Absorption of nutrients

Because IV treatments are administered directly into your bloodstream, they circumvent the digestive system. IV treatments are ideal for individuals who have difficulty ingesting fluids or medication due to nausea or illness. Similarly, IV therapy can benefit individuals with malabsorption issues, helping ensure that medication, fluids, and vitamins are accessible to cells.


At Studio Aesthetics our proprietary IV infusion blends contain essential fluids, electrolytes, vitamins, and antioxidants. Each IV therapy treatment is designed to contain the optimal balance of vitamins, antioxidants and medications to provide a wide range of health benefits.


Whether you’re looking to relieve pain or boost your fluid intake, IV hydration drips can be a helpful solution. Knowing how they work and what you can expect from IV Drips is the first step towards getting relief.


Nervous about getting IV Therapy?

Some people may feel anxious about getting an IV because they fear needles, but an IV drip is a very simple and common medical procedure. Though IV therapy may not sound appealing to many people, it is an important part of medicine.


The IV hydration drip process:

  1. The solution or blend goes into a bottle with an attached needle or tube.

  2. The bottle with its contents is hung on the outside of the bag with its contents (the tubing).

  3. The bag of fluid hangs on the pole which has wheels at its base so as to be mobile and make it easy for the nurse.

  4. IV therapy bags are designed to let gravity, as opposed to a syringe or other forced technique, carry fluid into the veins over time.

  5. The duration of a single treatment varies from person to person, but tends to last between 30 – 45 minutes.


Our team is committed to a safe, positive IV therapy experience. Your nurse will stay with you during the entire appointment to monitor your IV infusion and answer any questions you have.
