INTRODUCTION TO IV THERAPY
IV Drip Therapy
IV Vitamin Therapy – Essential macro and micro-nutrients must be derived from your daily eating of foods and drinking of fluids to ensure that your body is working at it’s peak of functioning. Importantly as well these nutrients and components of your daily intake are vital to ensure protection from common as well as harmful bacteria, viruses and other foreign organisms. Without essential supply of these to your body daily, the body is not able to function to its maximum and furthermore protects itself from invading and potentially harmful organisms in the environment.
Inflammation is at the root of every illness known to man and IV therapy is a powerful way to reduce inflammation no matter what the cause. The powerful antioxidants in IV therapy reduce inflammation and heal your body.
If you are not able to take regular drip therapy or want to supplement your treatments, at The Face and Body Place we can also guide you in additional meal replacement and supplement therapies to boost your body potential.
At The Face and Body Place we offer a range of IV treatments designed for immunity boosting, wellness support and treatment of different medical conditions.
Our IV Vitamin Therapy treatments can be offered in combination with other components of our aesthetic, regenerative and wellness programs or if you prefer as stand-alone treatments. Our medical doctor will consult with you and evaluate the programs that may be of interest to you and guide you in the best options suited for your individual needs.
IV Therapy, also known as IV Vitamin Therapy or IV Nutrient Therapy is a highly effective way to get essential nutrients, vitamins and other critical components necessary for maximum functioning into your body.
IV therapy works by the administration of these essential bodily requirements directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. Very often essential nutrients and other components of your diet and not sufficiently absorbed and this results in deficiencies in our bodies. These deficiencies lead to your body not functioning at the peak of its potential. IV Therapy therefore provides higher levels of the nutrients in your blood and therefore greater potential for these nutrients to reach every cell of your body where they are required for cellular, tissue and organ functioning.
IV administration of nutrients achieves blood concentrations not possible with oral or perhaps even intramuscular administration. In addition to having direct pharmacological effects, IV drip therapy may be more effective than oral or intramuscular treatment for correcting intracellular nutrient deficits because of the concentration of the ingredients and the pharmaceutical format of the ingredients in the IV drip.
At The Face and Body Place we can design an IV Therapy program ideally suited to your body needs. All drip therapy aids in hydration as well.
Types of IV Drips, Vitamins & Nutrients
The unique skin brightening formula used in the IV therapy program at The Face and Body Place is an effective way to bring about overall skin health and vitality, remove unwanted pigmentation and give a natural glow to your skin. The skin is the largest organ in the human body, and it craves essential nutrients and antioxidants to ensure it’s vitality. Antioxidants reduce inflammation in your skin, one of the critical reasons your skin can look anything other than vital and healthy. At The Face and Body Place, we DO NOT do skin bleaching. It is extremely harmful to your skin and can result in negative outcomes. Skin Brightening treatments are safe and effective to give you glowing skin.

For individuals who suffer from anaemia (low red blood cell levels) where the cause is low iron levels, then this IV drip therapy offered at The Face and Body Place is ideal for you. Iron is a natural ingredient of your diet. Common reasons for low iron in your body include poor dietary habits, gut dysfunction leading to poor absorption and excessive bleeding (menstrual or bowel). The reduced iron levels lead to the formation of red blood cells that cannot work at peak performance to keep you energetic and free of illness. Healthy blood cell counts help to fight off infection and boost your overall immunity and wellness. If you have low iron or think you may then we can evaluate your situation and recommend treatments that may include IV therapy.
