It’s no secret that antioxidants are good for our skin. They help heal, calm inflammation, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Nutrition and wellness advice often includes a list of antioxidant-dense foods such as berries, kale and other leafy greens, beans and dark chocolate (yes, please)!

Supercharge Your Antioxidant Intake with an IV Treatment

Did you know that some healthcare professionals now offer antioxidant IV treatments? The idea behind these treatments is that your body absorbs 100% of the nutrients, since they go directly into your bloodstream, as opposed to going through the skin or digestive tract.

Do they work? One contributing writer for Glamour said she noticed improved energy, glowing skin, and that her dark under-eye circles disappeared.

Sclerotherapy Injections for Those Visible Veins You Hate (You Know the Ones)

Do you have spider or varicose veins that make you feel self-conscious? You’re not alone! Millions of people deal with these types of visible veins.

However, they don’t have to stick around if you don’t want them to. Healthcare providers can help reduce the appearance (sometimes removing it altogether) of unsightly veins anywhere in the body with sclerotherapy.

The procedure involves an injection of a saltwater solution that causes the veins to collapse and disappear. The practice has been around since the 1930s and still proves to be effective today. If you think you could benefit from this, we recommend asking your physician if you’re a good candidate.

B2 & B12 Injections for Skin Health and Weight Loss

The Vitamin B family is an essential powerhouse for health and well-being. Do you feel sluggish and even exhausted? You could have a vitamin B deficiency. Does your skin look lackluster and feel like leather? A lack of vitamin B could be causing the issue.

Besides eating plenty of foods rich in these vitamins, you can try a B2 and/or B12 injection, both of which help the skin heal from inflammation and give it a plump, youthful-looking glow! An added benefit: B vitamins may help with weight loss and produce higher energy levels. Who wouldn’t want that?

As always, we recommend asking your doctor about whether these options are right for you.
