Vitamin Therapy in Salt Lake City
As part of our commitment to health & beauty, we are taking a more pro-active stance against aging and an active stance for health.
Anti-aging therapy has gained much attention lately. Though many aspects of aging are not understood, it is clear is that nutritional and hormonal changes play a major role. Dr. Dunkley has been researching IV vitamin infusion therapy as an effective preventative treatment against aging as well as an amazing defense against disease.
Vitamin Infusion Therapy
Without the proper vitamins and minerals, the human body will shut down. Lower than sufficient amounts will make you more susceptible to illness and even possibly disease. Plus, optimizing your vitamin/mineral intake boosts your energy levels and keeps you looking younger. Most of our vitamins and minerals come to us through the foods we eat. But it’s hard for most of us to always get the well-rounded amounts of the right foods with the right vitamins. To fill the gaps, we take vitamin supplements orally. The problem is that most of the potency of vitamins ingested orally ends up flushed down the toilet. Plus, certain vitamins can cause nausea and abdominal pain when taken in direct doses. But at Envision Cosmetic Surgery we offer vitamin infusions delivered through an IV drip, guaranteeing your body can get the most benefit. We offer various infusion combinations depending on what you’re health conditions you’re seeking to address.
What is vitamin therapy?
At Envision Cosmetic Surgery, we use vitamin infusion IV therapy to customizethe delivery of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids in a way that gives our patients a higher level of absorption of these beneficial nutrients. Whereas only around 50 percent of the vitamins you ingest orally will be available to your body, that number rises to around 90 percent with those taken through IV. Research has shown that vitamin infusion positively impacts immune function, energy levels, sleep habits, and mood. We can customize our infusions based to your individual goals or needs, say if you’re an endurance athlete or to head off a winter cold.
How do you perform vitamin infusion?
At Envision, either Dr. Dunkley or a nurse practitioner provides the IV. When you check in for your appointment, you can choose from our available options, or you can discuss a customized vitamin/mineral mix that addresses your particularneeds. Then you relax in one of our loungers while we administer the IV drip. You can read, work on your computer, listen to music, play a game on your phone, whatever you want. Around 30-45 minutes later your drip is finished andyou’re energized and ready to face the day.
What will vitamin infusion do for me?
Vitamins and minerals play a key role in your body’s immune system, helping to fend off minor illnesses such as colds and flu. They directly impact your energy levels and the quality of your sleep cycles. Recent research is pointing to high-dose vitamin C as an effective addition to chemotherapy in cancer treatment. Vitamins also play a role in anti-aging.
These are some of the conditions we feel our IV vitamin infusions improve:
- Migraine headaches
- Muscle spasms
- Upper respiratory tract infections
- Chronic sinusitis
- Seasonal allergic rhinitis
- Cardiovascular disease
- Various viral illnesses
How often should I get a vitamin infusion IV?
If you’ve been eating a poor diet for a length of time, you may want to consider bi-weekly infusions until your body obtains optimal nutritional balance and hydration. Otherwise, the frequency of your appointments is up to you. Some people increase their appointments during the cold and flu months, or when they’re doing some heavy athletic training or an intense schedule at work. How long will my results last? The increased glow in your skin, immunity boost, and increased energy from our vitamin infusion IVs will last up to a week. At that point, you can come in for another IV.
