IV Hydration Q & A

What is IV hydration?

IV hydration is a safe and effective treatment used to address common problems like dehydration, hangovers, and low energy.

During an IV hydration appointment, your Iconic Infusions, PLLC provider administers an intravenous drip of water, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This allows the hydrating solution to bypass your digestive system, restoring balance to your body and allowing you to receive the full benefits of treatment.

What are the symptoms of dehydration?

The symptoms of dehydration depend on the severity of the condition. However, telltale signs of dehydration include:

  • Reduced urine output
  • Dry eyes
  • Dry lips and tongue
  • Dry throat
  • Trouble focusing
  • Rapid breathing
  • Dry, wrinkly skin

If you’re dehydrated as a result of a hangover or due to an intense workout, you might also experience muscle cramps, headaches, or feelings of exhaustion. 

Am I a good candidate for IV hydration?

Only a qualified medical professional, like those at Iconic Infusions, PLLC, can determine if you’re a good candidate for IV hydration. During your initial consultation, your provider conducts a physical exam, asks you questions about your symptoms, and reviews your medical history. 

Make sure to answer your provider’s questions honestly. You should also let them know about your lifestyle, including whether or not you exercise, how much alcohol you regularly consume, and if you have any underlying health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, or chronic fatigue syndrome. 

After gathering the necessary information and having a thorough discussion, your provider can recommend a treatment that best aligns with your individual needs. 

Is IV hydration safe?

IV hydration is safe and well-tolerated. However, the treatment involves the use of an IV, so it’s normal to experience a slight pinch or mild sting at the beginning of treatment. 

In rare cases, IV hydration may trigger a nutritional imbalance within your body. To prevent this from happening, your provider develops a custom electrolyte solution that meets your goals for treatment.

How many IV hydration appointments will I need?

The number of IV hydration appointments you’ll need depends on the type of solution you receive and your goals for treatment. Most people experience significant improvement in their symptoms following one 60-minute session. If you’re severely dehydrated or you regularly workout, your provider might recommend a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart.
