How Do Pre-Treatment IVs Lead to Better Outcomes?

Julia had the vision of creating a clinical skin care studio with the traditional spa atmosphere for many years. Julia is a Licensed Aesthetician, Licensed Electrologist, and Certified Laser Hair Removal Technician in the State of Florida.

Today’s aesthetic procedures are already pretty remarkable. And many of these advanced skincare treatments, including CO2 and radiofrequency, now work by stimulating the body’s own cells to heal and regenerate fuller, fresher, and more youthful skin.

So how can we improve on the body itself?

One surefire way to create better med spa outcomes is to give your body everything it needs prior to performing the skincare treatment. And the quickest, most efficient way to boost the body’s processes is through a specially formulated IV, given right here in our Bradenton med spa.

Here’s how these pre-treatment IVs lead to better skincare outcomes.

What is a pre-treatment IV?

Prior to certain med spa treatments, including radiofrequency like Denza or CO2 treatments, you might have the option for an IV.

Essentially, a pre-treatment IV involves hooking you up, intravenously, to a bag of fluids and nutrients that flow directly into your bloodstream. You receive this full infusion of nutrients prior to receiving your med spa treatment.

At Bradenton’s Bellagena Med Spa, our IVs are administered by a nurse from the Beauty and Wellness Institute, which is run by our medical supervisor Dr. Pamela Chapman.

What nutrients do you receive in a pre-treatment IV?

The nutrients included in your IV solution should correlate to the treatment you’ll be receiving.  In other words, you’ll receive some vitamins that promote overall skin health and others that address the healing needs of the cells being targeted by the treatment.

For example, your IV should contain B complex vitamins, which promote overall skin health in a variety of ways. These are always good for your skin, no matter what you’ve got planned for it. 

Vitamins specific to a pre-treatment scenario include riboflavin, which speeds up the healing process and aids in cell turnover as well as collagen maintenance. This is beneficial when you receive a skincare treatment that breaks down old or damaged cells while encouraging the production of new, healthier cells.

Additionally, IV solutions also involve providing your body with additional fluid. Hydration is always helpful, especially for your skin, but also for your overall health.

In some cases, the IV nutrients can even be customized to address the personal needs of your specific skin.

How can a pre-treatment IV lead to better treatment outcomes?

When it comes to treatments and procedures that ask your body to do the work, it only makes sense that you want to give your body, and especially all the parts of your skin, everything it needs. That includes vitamins to maximize cellular processes as well as the resources those cells need (energy and building blocks) to do what they do and build what they build.

When your body is operating at its best, that’s when you’ll see the absolute best possible outcomes from today’s advanced skincare procedures.

What pre-treatment IVs are available for Bradenton skincare?

At Bellagena, we’re especially excited about our Glowgetter IV option, which is available before our Denza radiofrequency treatment as well as some of our CO2 treatments. And both of those treatments, with the Glowgetter IV, are part of our Transform and Glow 30 package.

The Glowgetter IV includes the following vitamins:

  • Vitamin C: Activates collagen production and protects from antioxidants
  • Biotin: A B complex vitamin that promotes overall skin health (as well as stronger hair and nails)
  • Thiamin (or Vitamin B1): Reduces breakouts
  • Riboflavin: Wound healing, cell turnover, and collagen maintenance
  • Niacin (or Vitamin B3): Skin conditioning, or smoother, fuller, and more moisturized skin
  • Vitamin B5: Maintains skin moisture

Now that we have such advanced skincare options, it’s time to make sure our bodyies are at their best, too. Schedule your pre-treatment IV at Bellagena today, and see what next-level skincare feels like.
