Depends on the IV therapy but usually an hour
What Is IV Drip Therapy?
Intravenous (IV) drip therapy is a medical treatment that involves delivering fluids, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients directly into a person’s bloodstream. To do this, a person inserts a thin tube into a vein.
IV drip therapy provides fast hydration, direct nutrient delivery, and targeted relief for various health needs, from dehydration to energy boosts.
Our IV Drips
As part of our commitment to holistic healthcare, Wimpole Aesthetics, London, has an ever-expanding menu of IV drips, also known as IV therapy.
At Wimpole Aesthetics, we have developed a wide range of drips that can target different concerns. We can individually tailor your IV therapy to you as part of a bespoke treatment programme, just like all our other treatments and procedures.
Our drips include:
- Myers Cocktail
- Glutathione IV
- Performance Booster IV
- Energy Booster IV
- Immunity Booster IV
- Anti-Ageing Booster IV
- Diet & Detox Booster IV
- Chill Out Booster IV
Please note: The IV therapy is provided by our sister company IVBoost UK. You can discover the full range of iv drips and vitamin shots here.
Our patients lead busy lives and are coping with the stress and anxiety this brings and the impact on their general health and well-being. They also strive to look as good as possible and dedicate time to taking care of themselves.
We believe IV vitamin drips can deliver for our patients on all levels.
What Is The Process?
IV therapy involves minimal discomfort, usually only during the initial needle insertion. Prior to treatment, we assess your medical history and may conduct a blood test to ensure precise nutrient levels. In our IV Therapy room, you’ll relax in a comfy chair as a doctor or nurse disinfects the injection site, often the arm, and inserts the IV catheter.
The procedure, either IV Drip or IV Push, takes 15 – 45 minutes, during which you can unwind, watch TV, read, or nap.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Usually, the full effects become noticeable within 12 to 24 hours after the infusion, although many people report immediate improvement right after treatment. The duration of the effects varies, spanning from 8 days to 3 weeks, depending on the condition, the specific IV cocktail, and the type of IV Therapy.
What Happens After?
Side effects are usually minimal or non-existent. In rare cases, you might encounter mild discomfort, bruising, redness, or itching at the injection site, but these symptoms generally resolve quickly. Allergic reactions are exceptionally uncommon.
How Much Do The Drips Cost?
At our London clinic, IV Therapy sessions range in cost from £50 to £400 per session, with most treatments falling within the £150 to £250 range.
1. Get In Touch
If you’ve been considering an aesthetic treatment to rejuvenate your skin or reshape your body, then the first step is to get in touch with the clinic to arrange a consultation with our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz or one of his team, depending on your requirements.
2. At The Clinic
The consultation is an essential part of the patient journey as it gives us the opportunity to discuss your objectives and the outcome you’re hoping to achieve. We will talk you through the procedure or treatment plan, clearly explain any possible risks and the results you can expect, as well as answer all of your questions.
3. Your Treatment
Procedures at Wimpole Aesthetics are carried out under the direction of our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz and his team. We aim to deliver practical, safe and effective medical aesthetic alternatives to cosmetic surgery whilst always respecting a patient’s privacy, dignity and confidentiality.
4. Post Treatment
Our care and support continues after you leave the clinic. You are provided with comprehensive aftercare advice appropriate to the treatment you have received and we welcome patients getting in touch if they have any questions regarding their experience and results.
The original IV therapy, Myers Cocktail has been used for over 30 years to enhance the body’s natural defences, boost the immune system and energy levels, as well as work as a complementary therapy. Myers Cocktail is a combination of essential vitamins and minerals including magnesium, calcium, B vitamins and the all-powerful vitamin C and can address any deficiencies in these valuable nutrients.
Glutathione is a powerful anti-oxidant which has been proven to have a wide range of benefits; from strengthening the immune system, fighting free radicals that do so much damage to the body, slowing down the ageing process caused by oxidative stress which has been linked to many serious health concerns. A key ingredient in many of our IV drips, we also provide a high dose Glutathione IV drip for those keen to benefit from this invaluable nutrient.
Performance Booster IV
Rather than reaching for quick-fix energy drinks, this IV drip works hard to keep you at peak athletic performance. It can also help with the comedown, both in stabilising energy levels and repairing muscles that may have been damaged or overused. B vitamins and amino acids such as carnitine and taurine help the body build energy supply and vitamin C is added to decrease recovery time between your workouts as well as assist with muscle repair post-exertion.
Energy Booster IV
For anyone in need of a pick-me-up, whether to maintain a busy lifestyle or cope with everyday stress, our Energy Booster IV can provide all the vitamins and minerals needed to lift energy levels. Vitamins such as B and C help the body convert energy from the food we consume and nutrients such as magnesium can contribute to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue. Mental well-being is also promoted so you’re able to cope with anything life can throw at you.
Immunity Booster IV
Pollution and stress weaken our immune system and affect our body’s ability to work effectively. Strengthening and protecting you through the flu season, our Immunity Booster IV is a vigorous cocktail of vitamins and minerals. We’ve included powerful anti-oxidants that tackle your toxic load and the oxidative stress that cause the body so much damage and mighty vitamin C and zinc that can strengthen your immune system and help reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Anti-Ageing Booster IV
We know our patients want to look their best as well as feel it, so we offer a wide range of aesthetic treatments at Wimpole Aesthetics, from anti-wrinkle injections to dermal fillers, but we believe that our Anti-Ageing Booster IV provides an all-over rejuvenation at a skin-deep level. Glutathione is a key ingredient of this drip, with its powerful anti-oxidant capabilities, but we’ve also added in B vitamins that stimulate collagen and elastin production, the levels of which drop as you age.
Diet & Detox Booster IV
Many of us are in a continual dieting cycle, but did you know that improving the body’s ability to detox effectively can make your weight-loss endeavours much more likely to succeed? Powerful anti-oxidants lower your toxic load; the body will store toxins in your fat cells making them harder to shift, so these valuable nutrients can support your weight loss efforts. Key energy-boosting vitamins and minerals are also added so you can exercise more effectively.
Chill Out Booster IV
The stresses of everyday life are proven to have a serious impact on the body and mind, in the form of a compromised immune system, insomnia or irritability. Our Chill Out Booster IV combines the vitamins and minerals that are shown to help maintain cognitive function and reduce tiredness and fatigue, so you can function effectively.
At Wimpole Aesthetics, we offer a diverse range of medical treatments and non-surgical rejuvenation procedures in the field of anti-aging and aesthetic medicine.
Dr. Joshua Berkowitz, our medical director, keeps up with the latest advancements in this field while prioritising the safety and efficacy of every treatment we provide.
