This is installment #13 of our “14 Proven Benefits of IV Therapy” Series.
Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies and is primarily made up of collagen and elastin. IV therapy can provide instant hydration for our skin, decrease inflammation, and infuse antioxidants. The most popular IV ingredients used for skin benefits are Vitamin C, Glutathione, and B Vitamins.
- Vitamin C: An antioxidant which helps block the damaging effects of free radicals which have long been associated with the aging process. Vitamin C is necessary for collagen formation and tissue repair and is important for connective tissues.
- Glutathione: Considered one of the most important antioxidants in the human body. It is a powerful antioxidant playing a role in detoxification by eliminating toxins that inhibit the immune system, by neutralizing free radicals which cause cellular damage. Glutathione also has dermatological properties: Glutathione deficiency is associated with aging.
- Vitamin B-Complex: A complex of thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacinamide (B3), and panthenol (B5). B Vitamins could help the body produce healthy new skin cells, and Vitamin B-5 may help with acne and skin aging.
- Vitamin B12: An essential water-soluble vitamin required for cell reproduction and. various health and wellness applications such as maintaining healthy skin and hair. Vitamin B12 helps to regulate the production of pigment in the skin, helping to prevent dark spots and pigmentation. Cobalamin also assists the body with the metabolism of protein which, in turn, promotes the growth of healthy skin cells and helps to repair damaged skin.
Infusions that contain antioxidants have the ability to remove toxins from the body. Without proper detox, certain toxins can be linked to some skin problems like acne, dermatitis, eczema, and premature aging. Skin health can be improved from the inside out with routine treatment.
