IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous therapy (IV therapy) is a non-invasive treatment that infuses the body with various combinations of essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. 


The delivery method of this treatment bypasses the digestive system and increases the body’s absorption of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, enhancing their effects and health benefits.

What are some benefits of IV therapy?

IV therapy can leave you feeling healthy and vibrant and offers the following benefits:


  • Healthy glowing skin
  • Improved overall well-being
  • Optimal hydration
  • Relief from migraines
  • Reduced stress
  • Reduced symptoms of jet lag
  • Improved cold and flu symptoms


Athletes also use IV therapy to boost performance, speeding up recovery after rigorous training and workouts.

What are the different types of IV therapy?

L’Arte Di Vivere offers several IV therapies and injections:

Fluid replacement

IV therapy includes fluid replacement, which replaces fluids lost from the body due to dehydration, disease, injury, surgery, or other conditions.


Hydration IV therapy can rapidly improve the health of your skin, joints, and muscles. The powerful influx of nutrients and fluids flushes toxins from these areas and restores them to total health, helping you look and feel healthy, so you can always be at your best.

Muscle building

Muscle building IV therapy can deliver nutrients during recovery after working out and support tissue growth. This IV treatment is popular among muscle builders, athletes, and fitness enthusiasts.

B12 injections

Your doctor prescribes vitamin B12 shots to treat pernicious anemia and B12 deficiency, especially if you have difficulty absorbing the vitamin. If you’re low in vitamins, injections may help raise energy and endurance during exercise.

Weight loss injections

Metformin (among others) might be used as a weight-loss tool for people with type 2 diabetes. Low vitamin B-12 levels in your body can be a side effect of this drug. If you take metformin, talk to your health care provider about ways to keep enough vitamin B-12 in your body to support healthy weight loss. Schedule a consultation to learn more about weight loss injections.

PRP injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be used as an alternative therapy in patients unresponsive to conventional treatment, for those who don’t want to be treated with steroids, and as a form of treatment for alopecia areata. L’Arte Di Vivere specializes in PRP hair restoration for men and women.
