From Hollywood stars to athletes more and more people are using IV Nutrient Therapy to strengthen immunity, improve energy and prolong the effects of ageing. If you haven’t heard of it before, basically it’s a ‘cocktail’ of high dose vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants that are administered intravenously into the bloodstream. As the nutrients are received directly into the bloodstream, intestinal absorption is bypassed and therefore, 100% of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids are absorbed. It’s also the fastest way to potentially restore optimum hydration and stimulate and support the immune system.

As many of us know our body needs daily doses of essential vitamins to function optimally. Whilst we can get these from our diet, most of us don’t consume sufficient amounts. In addition, many environmental and lifestyle factors also deplete our body’s supply e.g smoking, alcohol, caffeine, processed and fast food and stress.

For many of us the consequences of our poor diet choices means we have less than optimal digestion, and therefore we don’t absorb all the nutrients in our food. Increasing your vitamin intake by eating more of certain foods or by taking oral supplements can lead to a healthier lifestyle, however not all of the required vitamins and minerals actually penetrate into the blood. Even if we have optimal digestion, our body is limited by the amount of nutrients it can absorb.

Vitamin injections can be a powerful immune system booster with antiviral, anti-bacterial and anti-histamine properties. A vitamin boost can help the body recover from inflammation, thrombosis, infection, fatigue, illness, high stress and with post-surgical healing.

Obviously, no vitamin therapy should replace a nutritious diet, but the therapy itself has enormous health benefits and can speed up the healing process. Due to the nutrients being administered directly into the bloodstream the onset of effect is usually very fast, having immediate results at a cellular level in the body.

If you’re looking for a pick me up or have some real health concerns, IV Nutrient Therapy may help to rejuvenate your body, strengthen your immunity and get you on the road to recovery.

What is Botox?

Botox® is a neuromodulator which is extremely effective at relaxing facial muscles creating a smoother, natural appearance of fine lines. It is derived from a naturally occurring protein which has been purified from the bacterium species Clostridium botulinum. Botox® is approved by Health Canada for reducing facial lines and is the #1 non-surgical painless cosmetic procedure in the world.  The most commonly treated areas include frown lines (between the eyebrows), brow lift, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. It can also be used to treat lower muscles of the face and neck such as mouth frowns, dimpled chins, gummy smiles, and necklines.

 

How do Neuromodulators Works?

Precise intra-muscular injections block the message from the nerve to the muscle that is responsible for deep wrinkles, thus allowing the muscle to relax preventing deep facial lines from forming on the skin. The overall result is a younger, more relaxed-looking appearance.

The Benefits

  • Smooth and younger looking skin
  • Quick and painless treatment;
  • No downtime

What to Expect

The procedure takes about 15 minutes and the effects from Botox can be seen in 3 days but usually occurs at days 10-14. Results last up to 4 months and it is recommended to repeat the treatment about two to three times per year for maintenance and prevention purposes. Results may last longer with repeated treatments.
