The skin is our largest organ
While we may not always consider our skin to be an organ, it is actually the largest organ our bodies have and is our first line of defense against environmental toxins, germs, and hazards. Acting essentially as your body’s main shield, you can imagine that your skin can take quite the beating over a lifetime and therefore is prone to multiple problems, like acne, rashes, and wrinkles to name a few.
Outside of protecting our bodies from the outside world, our skin is also one of the first parts of our bodies to visibly show signs of aging, so for many, it’s become extremely important to take good care of the skin as we get older to ensure we can keep our youthful glow for as long as possible.
Things like having a good skincare routine and wearing lots of sunscreen are two great ways to help our skin, but are there other ways to help skin, too?
What is IV therapy for skin?
By definition, IV therapy is the administration of fluids, electrolytes, and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream through an IV line. If you’ve ever visited someone in the hospital (or been in the hospital yourself), then you’ve probably seen IV drips used to give patients medication and fluids, but IV drips have recently become more accessible outside of hospitals and have quickly become a vital part of a personalized wellness regimen.
So, how does it work?
Here at 10X Health, regardless of if you prefer to visit one of our state-of-the-art medical centers or opt for treatment in the comfort of your home or office, our expert medical team is able to provide IV therapy wherever and whenever is most convenient for you. Our team handles everything from mixing up an IV “cocktail” specifically for your body and needs down to actually placing the IV and administering the cocktail into your veins.
IV therapy is one of the fastest growing treatments in wellness, and there are tons of great benefits to the treatment, like better vitamin dosage control, hydration, targeting vitamin deficiencies, slowing the effects of aging, and, yes, even helping your skin.
How does IV therapy improve skin?
Along with a host of other benefits, IV therapy is a great option to help improve the tone and texture of your skin because it aids in cell regeneration and helps the cells in your skin rehydrate and be more efficient at detoxing your body.
Additionally, by introducing bioavailable nutrients and vitamins to your body through the bloodstream, your body is better able to repair and regenerate itself, from the skin to deeper within.
IV drips can also include NAD, a coenzyme found naturally in your cells that can help reverse the signs of aging, or glutathione, a peptide in your cells responsible for detoxification. NAD mixed with fluids, amino acids, and other important vitamins can not only give your cells a hydration boost but also reduce wrinkles, improve elasticity, and fight imperfections.
What else can I do to improve my skin?
While IV therapy is a great way to help improve the look and feel of your skin, there are a few other ways to help your skin look its best and reverse any signs of aging you may be experiencing.
Our 10X Health patients often couple IV therapy with other treatments to help their skin, the most popular being red light therapy. Red light therapy, a key part of our Superhuman Protocol treatment, has the ability to supercharge and regenerate your cells for improved skin, along with improved athletic performance and reduced inflammation.
Both IV therapy and red light therapy can be helpful treatments on their own, but when combined, the benefits are multiplied, leading to healthier, happier, and younger-looking skin.
