Your Hydration Station
IV therapy supplies a quick infusion of fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients to make you feel energized and renewed. We offer different IV therapy formulas to support whole-system wellness and give you a boost of energy. IV therapy delivers a healthy boost of vitamins directly into your bloodstream. Conveniently located to serve Houston and Garden Oaks, our clinic is the perfect place to relax and recharge with an IV vitamin drip.
A Whole-System Reset
IV vitamin drips provide a direct infusion of vitamins and hydration into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and therefore increasing the amount of vitamins and fluids that can be administered in a single setting. They can be used for fluid replacement or to correct electrolyte imbalances. Add on a Glutathione push to any drip for an extra boost of antioxidants and detox.
Energy & Focus - Contains a concentration of amino acids, vitamins, and hydration to boost overall energy, enhance mental focus, and promote effective digestion.
Combat Sickness - Contains a high dose of Vitamin C, other anti-oxidants, and immune-boosting ingredients to combat sickness. Great for times when you feel you may be coming down with something, illness prevention, or if you are going to travel and need a boost.
Contains fluids to help you bounce back and combat a headache from a night out, rigorous exercise, or a long day in the Houston heat.
Wellness - This is an injection containing vitamin B12, which is essential in many body functions, such as energy production, nerve cell health, red blood cell formation, neurological function, and digestion. It is ideal for those deficient in B12. It is an IM (intramuscular) injection, therefore providing increased absorption by bypassing the GI tract. Your IV Therapy, Slim Shot, B12, will be performed in Dr. Regina Rodman‘s office located in Houston, TX
Weight Management and wellness - Lipo B is a lipotropic injection of three compounds called methionine, inositol, and choline chloride (MIC) combined with vitamin B12 that can increase fat metabolism and aid in weight loss. It is an IM (intramuscular) injection, therefore providing increased absorption by bypassing the GI tract.
Supercharge Your Supply Levels
IV therapy is perfect for those days you feel particularly worn out. Illness, long hours, travel, and other factors can deplete your body's fluids and essential nutrients. While drinking fluids and taking in nutrients through the digestive system is usually the most effective, there are times when you cannot drink enough fluids to catch up on a deficit. Examples: if you feel you are becoming ill and have lost your appetite, those who have had bariatric surgery or other gastrointestinal surgery, after any surgery where you are slightly nauseous, those who work or exercise outside in the heat, or after a night of drinking alcohol. An IV vitamin drip provides instant hydration and supports the healthy functioning of every system of the body. Patients love the extra burst of energy and health they feel after their relaxing IV vitamin therapy appointment.
A Nutrient Rush Delivery
Your aesthetic medical provider is happy to help you select the best IV therapy formula for your needs. IV therapy has the advantage of being a relatively painless and minimally invasive procedure that allows you to hydrate and energize your body instantly. There is a small pinch when the IV catheter is inserted, but then you can sit back, relax, and replenish yourself.
Relax and Recharge
As a full surgical clinic, Face Forward is the ideal place to have IV therapy in a safe medical setting. Once you’ve chosen your IV therapy formula, your skin will be cleaned to prepare it for the IV needle. There will be a slight sting as the IV catheter is placed, after which point you should not be able to feel the catheter. It can take around 45 minutes for the IV therapy drip to be complete. You can use this time to relax, read, or catch up on emails. Most people begin to feel energized and hydrated immediately, with benefits continuing to improve for several hours after their visit.
That Full-Battery Feeling
After your IV therapy, you will be ready to get back to your day. You may feel rapid relief from dehydration symptoms and an instant energy boost. The IV needle site is very small and will heal quickly. No special aftercare is necessary. Rather, you will probably leave your visit feeling better than you did when you arrived. You can resume normal activities, including exercise, immediately.
Schedule regular IV therapy sessions for best results. Many people have IV vitamin drips a few times a month to support optimal wellness, improve hydration, and fill in any nutritional gaps.
Expect a slight sting when the IV is inserted, similar to having an injection. There is no pain after this as the drip is being administered, and many patients find the procedure relaxing. There is a small risk of pain or bruising at the IV site after the process.
Possible complications of having an IV cannula inserted include phlebitis, infiltration, and allergic reactions to the tape used on the skin. With any fluid infusion, there is a risk of fluid overload. However, Face Forward is a medical office supervised by Dr. Rodman, a medical doctor, and a nurse practitioner. You will have your vitals, including blood pressure, checked before your IV therapy, and we will obtain your medical history to minimize any risk of serious side effects.
No anesthesia is required for IV therapy. You will be able to drive yourself to and from your appointment and carry on with your day as usual afterward.
