IV Therapy & Vitamin Injections Sherman Oaks
IV therapy is one of the most effective ways to provide a wide range of vitamins and nutrients that restore, replenish, and revitalize your body. Cosmetic Injectables Center offers IV therapy and vitamin injections for patients experiencing the adverse effects of nutrient deficiencies that affect their appearance, physical health, and overall well-being.
When administered directly into the bloodstream, vitamins and minerals are better absorbed into your system. This can help resolve deficiencies, boost your immune system, help with healing, and sometimes even correct some hormone imbalances. Over-the-counter supplements can provide some relief, but patients often want reassurance that absorption of the supplements is at 100%, which can be best achieved through IV Therapy and Vitamin injections.
What Is IV Therapy?
Getting the adequate vitamins and nutrients necessary to stay healthy can be challenging for many people. Many patients lack the vitamins their bodies need, whether that deficit is from following a restrictive diet or not consuming enough nutrients. Malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies can show up in various ways.
When your body is deficient in essential vitamins and minerals, it can manifest in weight gain, dull skin, lethargy, hair loss, etc. To maintain a healthy appearance and feel your very best, receiving proper nutrition through IV therapy can make a significant improvement.
When patients receive IV therapy, their vitamins and minerals will be administered directly into the bloodstream through an IV during regular sessions. Our cosmetic medicine professionals will assess your unique nutritional needs to determine what you need, the particular amount, and how often you should get treatment.
What Are Vitamin Injections?
Vitamin injections are one-time injections that provide a “shot” of nutrients. These injections are formulated to your body’s specific nutritional needs, ensuring that you receive the exact vitamins and minerals your body lacks to feel re-energized, revitalized, and in generally good health. Vitamin injections come in three different forms: intravenous (IV), subcutaneous (SC) AKA subQ, or intramuscular (IM). Each administration method allows nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream at different speeds so that you can see and feel an immediate difference.
Nutrient deficiencies vary from patient to patient. Our cosmetic medicine experts will talk with you about your eating and exercise habits, use diagnostic tools, and assess presenting symptoms to determine what vitamin injections will benefit your body. From there, we can provide the best vitamin injections to meet your individual needs.
Benefits of IV Therapy and Vitamin Injections
As you might have observed, most patients are almost immediately given IV fluids when admitted to the ER or the hospital. This is because treating dehydration and washing out of toxins from the bloodstream is an easy and quick way to help resolve many common symptoms.

When your body is receiving the complete range of vitamins and minerals that it needs at a high absorption rate, it can kickstart all of the following:
- Resolving weight gain/weight loss
- Balancing hormones
- Diminishing acne and blemishes
- Recovering from excessive consumption of alcohol

What’s Included in IV Therapy and Vitamin Injections?
IV therapy and vitamin injections provide essential nutrients to patients who struggle to obtain all necessary nutrition through their diet and other supplements. Our highly skilled providers work with you to determine which vitamins and minerals you will most benefit from, and then decide whether you need regular IV therapy or occasionally vitamin injections. This high level of personal care combined with our provider’s expertise means that your nutritional treatment is tailored precisely to your unique needs.
IV therapy typically consists of saline, dextrose, lactated ringers, vitamin B, vitamin C, or calcium. The vitamins and minerals included in each IV therapy treatment vary from patient to patient, depending on their body’s deficiencies and what symptoms they are looking to resolve.
Vitamin injections are often either B vitamins or vitamin C. One of the most popular vitamin injections is vitamin B12, which provides various benefits, such as increased energy, decreased stress, healthier skin, and hair growth.
Are You a Good Candidate for IV Therapy or Vitamin Injections?
It can be hard to figure out if you’re deficient in the nutrients your body needs. Malnutrition can show itself in several ways. If you’re concerned that you may have a vitamin or mineral deficiency, look out for the following signs and symptoms:
- Unexplained weight loss/weight gain
- Poor appetite
- Chronic digestive issues
- Intense fatigue
- Dull, dry skin
- Thinning hair/hair loss
- Diminished nail growth
- Decreased energy
- Muscle weakness or cramping
- Numbing or tingling in the extremities
- Slow wound healing
- Poor concentration
- Poor memory
While these symptoms are attributable to many underlying medical conditions, they are often found in simple nutrient deficiencies. If your regular physician has ruled out other medical causes, your body may be suffering from a lack of vitamins or minerals. Our experts will assess your concerns and determine which vitamins and minerals best meet your needs. When you’re finding it’s impossible to obtain complete nutrition from your diet or supplementation, IV therapy and vitamin injections can help! However, be mindful that if you have any medical issues that cannot tolerate excessive fluids (such as congestive heart failure or kidney disease), you must get approval from your physician before receiving IV liquids. While controversial, some also propose that Vitamin C treatment in high dosage is discouraged in people with G6PD deficiency.

IV Therapy & Vitamin Injections FAQs
How long does IV and Vitamin therapy last?
The answer depends on which vitamin is being injected because the longevity of all vitamins is different. Vitamin A, D, E, and K are fat-soluble and get stored inside the body, leading to a potential overdose. Other vitamins such as Vitamin B and C are disposed of through the body when there is excess. The hydration of these vitamins typically lasts about a day. As long as healthy nutrition is maintained, vitamin deficiency will be unlikely to occur.
Does IV vitamin therapy work?
It is a great way to replenish and decrease vitamin deficiency. It works better than oral supplements because it’s being directly injected into the vein, leading to a higher uptake than pills that need to be broken down, which are then transported through the stomach to be retrieved inside the arteries.
How often should you get IV therapy?
IV therapy can be used as often as is desired because it can rehydrate body fluids. For example, in hospitals, IV drips are connected to the patient twenty-four hours a day until rehydration is achieved. While there may be no downsides to rehydration, overusing specific vitamins such as A, D, E, and K can have adverse side effects. Other vitamins such as B and C are water-soluble. As such, the excess will be disposed of through urination.
Who can administer IV vitamins?
IV vitamins can be administered by medical providers who have at least an RN degree. PAs, NPs, MDs, and DOs are examples.
Can vitamins be given through IV?
Yes, vitamins can be injected through IV solutions and intramuscular injections. It is recommended that IV therapy be administered by a professional because optimal solution concentration and pH levels are essential to ensure that complications from imbalances do not occur.
What does IV vitamin therapy do?
IV Vitamin therapy is an alternative option to oral injection to replenish vitamins. It’s perfect for those whose intestines have lower absorption ability. It also gives energy on which the day it is received. Of course, if there are any deficiencies, it helps resolve any symptoms thereof. These symptoms could include weakness, tiredness, lack of luster in skin, dehydration, fatigue, and mental acuity. It also may improve sleep and hangover symptoms such as nausea.
How do you feel after IV therapy?
Individuals may feel hydrated, energized, rejuvenated, and feelings of restlessness are reversed after receiving IV therapy and vitamin injections.
Are vitamin IV drips good for you?
Vitamin IV drips are a healthy method of replenishing vitamin deficiencies safely as long as a health care provider is the one who administers them.
Are IV vitamins safe?
IV vitamins are safe as long as they’re administered by a licensed medical professional. If specific vitamins such as A, D, E, and K are over-dosed, dangerous results may occur due to the vitamins being stored in fat cells leading to toxic effects in excess. A, B, and C vitamins are water-soluble vitamins that will be disposed of through urination.
Does IV therapy work for weight loss?
There is some speculation on studies that support weight loss, especially if vitamins are deficient. By increasing energy levels through vitamin injections, you may be burning more calories that could aid in weight loss. However, no scientific studies have definitively proven this correlation.
