Intravenous Treatments at the Los Angeles Area's Cosmetic Surgery Institute
There are many ways medications, vitamins, and minerals can enter the body. One of the most effective is intravenous delivery, also known as IV infusions. The Los Angeles area's Cosmetic Surgery Institute has a focus on wellness in addition to beauty, which is why the team offers this advanced treatment strategy to help patients dealing with a variety of health challenges, including chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and Lyme disease.
Available IV treatments include Vitamin B complex and other vitamin therapies, and the "Myers cocktail," which was developed by a physician and includes magnesium chloride hexahydrate, calcium gluconate, hydroxocobalamin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, dexpanthenol, B complex, vitamin C, and sterile water. There is also glutathione for the liver, full body detox, and immune boost. The vitamins and minerals are water soluble and beneficial to the body, whether a pick-me-up is needed or relief of ongoing symptoms is desired. Introducing them directly into the bloodstream can be a faster and more efficient way to ensure their delivery, as opposed to oral medications that must be absorbed via the digestive tract.
What to Expect from IV Infusions
Cosmetic Surgery Institute's IV infusions are personalized to the patient, with every treatment beginning with an in-depth consultation so the team can get a complete understanding of the problem and propose the most ideal solution. Be prepared to provide a complete health history, including ongoing and current symptoms, other treatments or medications being used, and information on when symptoms started and how long they have lasted, as well as their severity.
All IV infusions are prescription treatments overseen by a physician and administered by a trained and experienced medical professional at the practice. IV infusions do not take long, with individual sessions typically lasting less than an hour.
Although IV infusions involve puncturing the skin, many patients easily tolerate the brief and mild discomfort. Anyone with particular concerns when it comes to the sensation can request help desensitizing the area to improve comfort.
Results of IV infusions differ depending on the specific combination of minerals, vitamins, and other ingredients used. It is not uncommon to feel an improvement in energy and a reduction in pain within minutes of the treatment, with further benefits experienced in the following hours and days. Patients can schedule return visits as necessary to maximize their results.

Our Approach to IV Infusions
While IV infusions can be tremendously beneficial to the right patient, Cosmetic Surgery Institute emphasizes that they are often just one piece of a larger treatment plan that should involve lifestyle management and the coordination of a knowledgeable medical team. When administered strategically and with care, IV infusions can improve quality of life by reducing fatigue, pain, stress, and other negative effects of chronic conditions and boosting the body's own healing and recuperating abilities.
