You may have been hearing about a procedure called the “vampire” lift or facial for skin rejuvenation. It is popular among Hollywood Celebrities to aid them in maintaining a more vibrant healthier complexion. This is a non-surgical procedure in which we use your own blood’s healing powers to stimulate collagen growth. First we perform a blood draw, then we extract your platelets from the test tube. The platelets create a serum called Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP. The serum is not red but clear, so, in fact, the word “Vampire” is misleading. PRP contains high levels of growth factors that stimulate collagen production. When PRP is applied to the face via microneedling or injection, it promotes cell repair and promotes a more youthful appearance.
IV nutrient therapy is a combination of vitamins that are given through the vein. It can help boost the immune system, increase energy levels and help manage many chronic health problems. Typically when digestion occurs, nutrients are absorbed into the blood stream from cells of the inner lining of the intestines. If there is a damage to the intestinal cells or digestion is weak, nutrients will not be absorbed.
IV nutrient therapy can help replenish nutrients and provide rapid symptom relief. When people become sick from either an acute or chronic illness, the body requires higher concentrations of nutrients. With IV nutrient therapy, nutrients are directly absorbed to fuel cells.
IV nutrient therapy is done in the office. Patients sit comfortably and a sterile IV line is started. IV nutrient therapy will last approximately 20 minutes, but may vary depending on the specific composition of nutrients being infused. A complete treatment course generally requires a series of IV infusions.
