More Than Skin Deep: The Beauty IV Drip Therapy

More Than Skin Deep: The Beauty IV Drip Therapy

By Cynthia Thaik, M.D., FACC

The concept of PHYSICAL BEAUTY is multidimensional and therefore achieving “it” is not as simple as we would like. Every person has their own understanding of what being beautiful means to them, as the famous saying goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and therefore it is subjective, not objective, as today’s society often wishes us to believe. If you live in or near Los Angeles, a city notorious for its obsession with beauty and youth, you are probably aware of the numerous procedures, products, and regimens for achieving the elusive “beauty” standard many Angelenos aspire to.

“Inside” and “Outside” Options For Beauty Procedures

The type of beauty procedures that we promote at our holistic medical spa start with an “inside-out” treatment approach. How your skin looks is a reflection of how well your body is functioning. That means we take a deeper look at the HEALTH of your skin, hair, and nails. That is not to say that we don’t offer many wonderful aesthetic procedures to help achieve your desired beauty results. As a holistic wellness center,  along with these elective services, we are able to provide you the tools needed to achieve the “complete beauty package” inside and out!

Boost Your Beauty From Within With IV Drip Therapy

One of these tools is IV Therapy, which is the ultimate “inside-out” approach as far as beauty treatments go.  It allows your body to receive and absorb nutrients directly into the bloodstream, thereby allowing for a targeted approach for your dermatological and beauty needs. Because nutrients are delivered straight to the bloodstream, the IV drip is highly effective in boosting your body’s natural functions for protecting your skin,building new skin, and mitigating any oxidative and inflammatory damage. Plus it is ALL NATURAL!

Beauty IV DRIP For Los Angeles Patients

Our BEAUTY DRIP Improves the look and health of your skin, hair, and nails. Through a combination of Glutathione, B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Biotin, L-Lysine, and other important nutrients, the IV treatment not only boosts various cellular processes that promote the health of your skin, hair, and nails, but also aids in reducing toxins, inflammation and metabolic impairments that can harm your dermatological health and wellness.

What’s In The Beauty IV Drip?

Our Beauty IV Drip contains a proprietary blend of ingredients, all aimed at boosting your body’s natural processes. It includes:

  • Glutathione – a master antioxidant
  • B Vitamins – while each class of Vitamin B boasts different skin benefits, the entire Vitamin B complex helps to combat free radical damage
  • Vitamin C – The antioxidant properties of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health
  • Biotin – assists in energy production and improves the health of hair and nails
  • L-Lysine – an amino acid that has been studied for its possible role in the prevention of inflammatory acne
  • other important nutrients

What Are The Benefits of Glutathione?

One of the stand-out ingredients in our Beauty Drip is Glutathione.  It is a master antioxidant and an all-around anti-aging and wellness nutrient that truly enhances the beauty processes in your body.  Several studies have determined that the levels of Glutathione in the body decline with age and it is therefore important to replenish with supplementation.

Beauty IV Drip Nutrients Vitamins Amino Acids

However, it has also been shown that Glutathione is poorly absorbed orally due to a certain enzyme that degrades it as the nutrient enters the digestive tract.  IV therapy presents a practical solution for this absorption issue, as Glutathione is able to bypass the gut and enter directly into the bloodstream which then circulates it to the rest of the body.

Together with Glutathione, the other nutrients in the Beauty Drip help enhance the health and wellness of your skin, hair, and nails, as well as providing hydration to your skin and the rest of your body!

What Skin Conditions Can The Beauty Drip Help With?

You may have heard that the “beauty drip” gives you radiant, glowing, luminous skin. This treatment is effective for:

  • Acne
  • Dull skin
  • Dry skin
  • Rosacea
  • Sun damaged Skin
  • Under eye bags
  • Puffiness
  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Brittle nails
  • Dull hair
  • Thinning hair


How Often Should I Get A Beauty IV Drip?

We take a customized approach to suit your individual wellness needs. The frequency of the Beauty IV Drip, as well as other IV therapy options, is determined on a patient by patient basis. Some of our patients choose to schedule the Beauty Drip prior to a special event where they wish to look and feel their best. Celebrities are known to get beauty drips before red carpet events. If, like many of our Los Angeles patients, you are a music festival goer, a Beauty IV Drip is a good idea after Coachella, Stagecoach, Burning Man, Outside Lands or other music festivals near Los Angeles..


Who Should Not Get The Beauty Drip?

As with all procedures, consult with your healthcare provider before starting treatment.

For IV therapy, caution is advised in those with known congestive heart failure, renal failure, or liver disease, as well as pregnant women and nursing mothers.

If you are curious about giving your beauty regimen a boost from within, schedule a consultation to see if the Beauty IV Drip is right for you. We offer IV Therapy at our Burbank and Santa Clarita, CA offices, by appointment.
