With the increasing popularity of intravenous therapy, the number of IV bars has grown exponentially in recent years.
These spa-like lounges offer everything from one-time hangover treatments to regular therapy for improved well-being.
But are IV bars the best places to go for IV therapy?
And how are they different from mobile IV companies like Reset IV?
Read on to find out.
What Is an IV Bar?
An IV bar or lounge is a place where you can get an IV infusion. IV bars typically have multiple stations that can accommodate several clients at once, while some also offer private rooms.
Just like in a clinical setting, a nurse in an IV bar will insert a needle into your arm and connect it to the IV bag. While you’re receiving the infusion, you can sit back and relax, read, watch a video, or work on your laptop. An IV infusion usually takes around 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
Many IV bars offer amenities such as free WiFi, phone chargers, as well as coffee and snacks to enjoy during your visit. Some also provide wellness services, such as vitamin shots, massage, or acupuncture, along with IV treatments.
How Much Does Treatment at an IV Bar Cost?
The cost of a treatment in an IV bar can range anywhere from $100 to $300 and more, depending on the location and the type of IV drip you’re receiving. Add-ons that allow you to customize your package come at an additional cost.
Why Would I Go to an IV Bar?
The first IV bars that opened back in 2012 focused mostly on treating hangovers. Since then, they have expanded their offers to treat everything from dehydration to migraines, food poisoning, and jet lag.
IV therapy is one of the fastest ways to combat the most common hangover symptoms, such as thirst, dizziness, headache, upset stomach, nausea and vomiting, as well as fatigue and lack of energy. IV formulas for hangovers contain a special combination of hydrating fluids, vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-nausea and anti-heartburn medication to speed your recovery after a night of partying and drinking.
Anyone who is dehydrated can benefit from IV therapy. IV bags are typically based on a normal saline solution, a mixture of water and sodium chloride that replenishes the lost fluids and electrolytes when you are sick or hungover.
IV bags for food poisoning contain a unique blend of multivitamins formulated to help settle your stomach and restore lost nutrients. In addition, the hydrating solution helps supplement your fluid intake and prevents dehydration.
IV therapy taken either before or after traveling can effectively prevent and reverse the effects of jet lag. These intravenous solutions contain all the fluids and vitamins you need to reduce stress, combat fatigue, and recover as fast as possible after crossing time zones.
Healthy skin, hair, and nails
Beauty support IV drips are composed of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants necessary for healthy skin, hair, and nails. IV therapy can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, repair UV damage, brighten your skin, and improve blemishes and imperfections.
Are IV Bars Safe?
IV therapy is generally a very safe procedure with few side effects, the most common being redness, bruising, and soreness at the injection area. However, complications may occur if either the needle or your skin are not properly cleaned before the treatment. The risk of a blood infection can be minimized with proper sterilization and hygiene, so you should look for a place that is clean and that uses the right supplies.
Medications that are included in an IV solution can also cause side effects. Before you start the therapy, it is essential that you talk to your doctor to make sure the treatment is safe for you.
Why Reset IV Is Better Than an IV Bar
An IV bar may seem like an excellent option for your IV treatment, but mobile IV services such as Reset IV are often even more convenient. Here’s why.
Mobile IV therapy is the perfect option when you’re feeling too sick to leave your bed or if you just prefer the privacy that IV lounges can’t offer. Reset IV brings intravenous treatments right to your home, office, or any other location of your choice. There is no need to drive to an IV bar or wait for your session.
Reset IV treatments are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With services offered throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, Las Vegas, Miami, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, and Hollywood, we’ll be at your door within an hour of booking, depending on availability.
Reset IV infusions are performed by registered nurses who have long experience in IV therapy and who will ensure a safe and secure environment during your treatment. The nurses follow the strict protocols used in Emergency Rooms and Urgent Cares across the country. In addition, your treatment will always be approved by our physicians to make sure it is completely safe for you to take.
