IV Therapy FAQ
Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy at Plastic Surgery of Westchester utilizes hospital grade IVs and injectable saline / ringer’s lactate solutions that are then prepared with 100% bioavailable vitamins. Unlike a hospital treatment, our infusions are given in a peaceful spa setting for a calm and relaxing experience.
During the first visit, a doctor or nurse practitioner will discuss your main complaints and desired outcomes with you. They will review your medical and surgical history and all medications you are taking. If you have any complex medical conditions, you may be asked to obtain blood work or further testing and / or your personal physician’s approval prior to receiving any infusions.
Make sure you are well hydrated prior to your visit. We suggest drinking one to two 16oz. bottles of water beforehand. Dehydration can make it difficult to insert an IV.
The number and frequency of treatments will depend on certain factors. We take into account your current health status and response of your body to the treatments when recommending a follow-up treatment. Vitamin therapy infusions can be done as frequently as every week or just as needed. In some cases, you may have several infusions scheduled regularly, followed by maintenance therapy with occasional treatments thereafter.
Most patients will feel better right away. Due to a busy lifestyle, many people are chronically dehydrated and deficient in certain vitamins and minerals. Thus, once you are hydrated and nutrients are replenished, your symptoms will improve quickly.
Sometimes, you may feel tired or unwell after an infusion. This likely indicates that you are in the process of detoxifying. When toxins are pulled out of the tissues, they re-enter the blood stream. Even if you do not feel well at this stage, the process is one of healing and cleansing. After this period, an overall improvement in your sense of well-being is expected.
Apply pressure to the IV site for 2 minutes and keep a band-aid in place for one hour after the infusion. Ice packs can decrease swelling and relieve any initial discomfort at the IV site. We encourage you to drink plenty of fluids (one to two 16oz. bottles of water) and continue to stay hydrated after your infusion. Please call the office if you have any questions, concerns, or experience any of the following after your infusion: significant swelling that persists, redness over the vein, pain in the vein / arm that is not improving or worsening, headache that does not resolve with increased hydration or over-the-counter pain medications (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or acetaminophen). If you feel like you are having a life threatening emergency, please call 911.
What to Expect
For your first visit, please:
- Bring your completed and signed IV Infusion Therapy Intake, Medical History, and signed IV Infusion Consent Forms.
- Bring a list of all prescription and over-the-counter medications and vitamins / supplements you take.
- Make sure you are well-hydrated prior to your visit. We suggest drinking 1-2 16oz. bottles of water.
- Eat something prior to your visit. A high-protein snack such as nuts, seeds, protein bar, cheese, yogurt or eggs will help prevent lightheadedness, dizziness, or weakness from low blood sugar.
After your infusion:
- Apply pressure to the site for 2 minutes after the IV has been removed.
- Keep Band-aid in place for 1 hour.
- Use cold packs for pain relief and to decrease any swelling.
- If you experience bruising, we suggest warm packs and arm elevation
- Stay hydrated; drink 1-2 16 oz. bottles of water after your infusion
- Call PSW or your physician if any of the following are progressively worsening after your IV infusion: significant swelling over the IV site; redness over the vein that is increasing in size; pain in the vein/arm that is not improving over an 8-12 hour period; headache that does not resolve with increased hydration or over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin, ibuprofen, or acetaminophen.
If you feel like you are having a life threatening emergency, please call 911.
