IV nutrition is a therapy that is becoming increasingly popular. It is a method of administering vitamins and minerals directly to the bloodstream. This technique allows us to achieve higher than normal blood levels of nutrients and these increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies.

Possible effects:

  • Enhancement of general wellbeing
  • Anti-ageing
  • Detoxifying
  • Fat burning
  • Immune system boost
  • Improving energy levels
  • Mood support
  • Improving the health of hair
  • Increase athletic ability
  • Skin lightening
  • Sleep Improvement

Fast acting with long lasting effects

At Skin Cliniq our intra-muscular boosters take just seconds and IV infusions take 30-60 minutes. Many patients begin to feel the effects during the treatment which then continues over the following hours and days. It doesn’t take long to start feeling refreshed, re-energised, and revitalized.

A formula that’s right for you:

Whether you are male or female, young or old, have an active lifestyle or are chained to a desk, everyone is unique and so are their nutrient requirements. There are many different treatment options for IV therapy depending on individual goals. At Skin Cliniq, our treatments are tailor-made for each patient in order to meet a range of different health and well-being needs.

At Skin Cliniq, all of the intravenous protocols we use have been thoroughly researched and developed by a team of leading doctors, naturopathic doctors and nutritionists.

Is intravenous nutrition therapy safe?

Side effects are extremely rare, and almost always are limited to local irritation of the vein. Most commonly, patients can feel a minor sensation of heat and flushing (a magnesium effect), and the taste of vitamins soon after the infusion begins.

Some patients even experience a feeling of relaxation when the infusion begins. Rarely, some patients can feel nauseous, so it is always best to eat just prior to your appointment, and bring some snacks with you to your appointment.

Why intravenous nutrition over oral supplements?

The substances used in IV therapy are vitamins, minerals and water, all of which are classified as “essential nutrients”. It’s an apt name, as they are “essential” for life, however there are also nutrients that the body cannot synthesise on its own. Traditionally they were obtained from food we eat, but modern food is often modified and over processed, leaving many of us severely deficient in these essential nutrients.

IV nutrition delivers high levels of nutrients directly into the bloodstream. Oral supplements of vitamins and minerals can only do so much because our digestive system blocks high levels of nutrition consumed orally.

IV therapy also avoid side effects like upset stomach and diarrhoea that can occur with high dose oral vitamins.

How is IV therapy delivered?

There is minimal discomfort during the procedure as a 23 guage needle is used – the same as for a blood test, and the infusion is given very slowly over 20minutes to an hour.

  • The B Vitamins: B12, B5, B6 and B Complex
    Help convert food into energy, involved in cell metabolism, promote cell growth, form red blood cells, enhance the immune system, maintain healthy skin and muscle tone.
  • Magnesium Sulphate
    Essential for healthy bones, teeth, heart tissue and brain. Critical for energy production at the cellular level.
  • Calcium Gluconate
    Is especially essential for athletes who are more likely to lose calcium. Calcium is important for strong bones and muscle contraction. Reduced levels of calcium can result in muscle cramps.

The Amino acids – the building blocks of Protein

  • Arginine
  • Performs many vital functions, it has significant effect on the regulation and tone of the blood vessels.
  • Improves: Cardiovascular health, immune system, insulin resistance, collagen production and excess fat burning. Carnitine
  • Exercise and training can lead to a deficiency. It performs many essential functions, including energy metabolism. Improves: The immune system, fat burning and supports the heart.
  • Glutamine
  • The demand increases in physical and mental stress and the production slows down with age.
  • This amino acid is integral to a whole host of systems in the body.
  • Involved in the immune system, antioxidant production and a major component of muscle tissue and metabolism, therefore an important aid to recuperation. Taurine – Perform better and recover faster
  • One of its many benefits are supporting improved endurance and performance in both aerobic and anaerobic systems sports.

Taurine can increase total fat oxidation, improving fat burning thereby improving performance and time to exhaustion via better fat burning. It also help fast-twitch muscle peak force by supporting contractile properties and countering fatigue.

We recommend a course of 6 treatments spread over 6-8 weeks.

IV Skin Lightening (IV Glutathione)

IV skin lightening with glutathione injections involve directly delivering glutathione, vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid into the bloodstream. Regular injections speed up cell turnover and generate permanent and long-lasting skin lightening results.

Glutathione works by inhibiting the production of tyrosine, the enzyme which is responsible for the production of melanin (pigment) in our skin. Aside from cosmetically lightening the skin, glutathione is a natural antioxidant which cleanses the liver and eliminates scavenging free radicals that contribute to a number of degenerative medical conditions.

Additionally, IV skin lightening with glutathione injections treat a number of dermatological conditions that are most prevalent in darker skin types. Oily skin, enlarged pores and hyperpigmentation can all be addressed with a professional course of IV Infusion treatments.

The duration of skin lightening depends very much on your skin tone. If you have medium brown skin, then we wold expect up to 6 months of weekly skin brightening drips. If you have dark brown skin, we would expect up to 12 months of weekly skin brightening drips. The result is patient dependent. One or two drips in clinic a week are advised, and for optimal results, at home use of suppositories.

Indications for IV Skin Lightening

  • Cosmetic skin lightening
  • Skin discolouration and acne scarring
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Various forms of hyperpigmentation, including melisma and UV damage in fairer skin types
  • Glutathione Suppositories
  • An optional, but recommended protocol in addition to IV Skin Lightening with glutathione to optimize skin lightening effects.
