Getting older can mean aching joints and unsightly wrinkles on your skin. Every year that passes brings on more symptoms that show you’re aging. However, you don’t have to just live with your body getting older; IV therapy may be able to help.
At IVY Infusions, our team is focused on treatments that allow you to maintain your youth. Leading our team is Sasha Beatty, who is a certified family nurse practitioner. Ms. Beatty and the team specialize in IV infusion therapy for a variety of issues, including anti-aging.
What are common signs of aging?
We all wish our bodies and skin would look youthful our whole lives — but they unfortunately don’t. Every year, microscopic changes happen that build up, leading to signs of aging such as:
- Fine lines
- Dull skin
- Decreased skin elasticity
- Age or liver spots
- Pale, thin appearance to your skin
- Worsening eyesight
- Decreased energy
- Weakened muscles
Your memory and brain function also deteriorate as you get older. All these signs of aging take a toll on your self-esteem, confidence, and well-being.
However, if you get ahead of your body, you can continue to look and feel as young as you’d like. How is this possible? One way is through IV infusion therapy.
How IV therapy can help
IV infusion therapy is a way for you to get essential vitamins, nutrients, and medications directly into your bloodstream. Pills don’t work as well as IV therapy, because they lose some of their potency in your gastrointestinal system.
This means less noticeable results if you rely on oral medications alone. IV therapy, though, works quickly, as the fluids and nutrients are delivered right into your bloodstream and distributed throughout your body.
IV therapy isn’t just used in the hospital when you’re sick; it’s more recently been used for aesthetic purposes as well. Ms. Beatty provides IV therapy for a variety of purposes, which help your body in a number of ways, including:
- Helps with muscle recovery
- Increases your energy
- Provides hydration to your skin and cells
- Helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines
- Improves your eyesight
- Improves your GI health
Ms. Beatty uses personalized formulas to help you reach your goals. She assesses your skin and overall health to determine what essential vitamins and nutrients best suit your needs.
What nutrients help with anti-aging?
The real gem about IV therapy is that it can be tailored to your specific needs. When it comes to anti-aging, Ms. Beatty has the ability to create custom blends to help you achieve a more youthful glow.
Some of the common vitamins and nutrients she uses to help beat the signs of aging include:
This is a coenzyme that’s essential for just about every function in your body. As you get older, NAD+ levels decline, leading to problems in every area of your body. However, with a dose through an IV infusion, your body gets this essential coenzyme quickly, so it can go to work restoring functionality.
B complex vitamins
These vitamins are crucial to the aging process. Some common B complex vitamins are thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, and pantothenic acid. These vitamins help with moisture levels in your skin and the maintenance of collagen.
This vitamin is important in anti-aging, as it stimulates the production of collagen. This helps firm up your skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Zinc is a crucial mineral when it comes to your skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to keep your immune system in good shape. It’s vital in healing your skin and protecting the cells that produce collagen.
Your skin, nails, and hair need vitamin B12 to keep them looking their best. Vitamin B12 is involved in cell production, which helps to reduce issues in your skin that promote signs of aging.
There are many other vitamins and minerals, including amino acids, that Ms. Beatty can add into your IV infusion. She determines what your major goal is related to IV therapy, so she can give you the best results possible.
