IV Drips Procedure

At Omniya Clinic in London

Before an IV Drip treatment takes place, you will have an initial consultation with one of our experienced practitioners before the treatment takes place. Once you are ready for treatment our medically trained practitioners will make sure that you are fully comfortable and relaxed at all times. The procedure will take around 45 minutes and you will be free to go back to your typical daily routine afterwards.

What to expect from your IV drip treatment

How long will it take for IV drips to work?

Receiving an IV is something that can differ from person-to-person. However, we usually find that it does not take more than 45 minutes for the procedure to be carried out. In terms of the benefits, this all depends on the vitamins you’re receiving and the dosage. This is something that will be explained to you in full during your consultation, and you will also be given a realistic picture regarding how regular you should have IV therapy.

How often will I need to come back?

This depends on what type of treatment you have, how well the treatment works for you and what you are aiming to achieve with IV therapy. It is likely that you would benefit from regular treatments, but this is something you could discuss with an Omniya practitioner before treatment begins.

What are some of the IV vitamins that we offer?

As mentioned, for our IV Drips, we’re pleased to partner with Intravita, as they offer a vast collection of safe and effective IV vitamins. This includes the following…

  • Methylcobalamin – This helps to boost your energy and speed up your metabolism.
    Ascorbic Acid – This is also known as ascorbate and Vitamin C. It is a critical nutrient that is involved in tissue repair, as well as being important for your blood vessels, muscles, and bones. If you have vitamin C deficiency, this treatment is recommended for you.
  • Pyridoxine – This is also known as vitamin B6. It plays a crucial role in the body. It is needed to maintain the health of red blood cells, skin, and nerves. It has also been used to treat and prevent peripheral neuropathy, which is a nerve disorder.
  • Glutathione – This is an antioxidant that is found in some bacteria, fungi, animals, and plants. It is capable of stopping damage to critical cellular components.
  • B Complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 & B12) – B Complex is a great IV shot to go for if you’re looking for something to help improve overall wellbeing. B vitamins have a direct impact on your cell metabolism, brain function, and energy levels, acting as the building blocks for a healthy body.
  • Arginine – Arginine is used for the treatment of blood vessel and heart conditions. This includes coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, chest pain, and congestive heart failure (CHF).
    Lysine – This is an amino acid that is often used to make medicines. It can be beneficial in terms of treating and preventing cold sores.
  • Taurine – Taurine naturally occurs in the human brain. You may have heard about it before, as it is often used in energy drinks, giving you a great boost. It also has antioxidant properties and is vital in a number of the metabolic processes in the body.
  • Zinc – Zinc helps your body in a number of different ways. It is found in cells throughout the body. It assists the immune system when it comes to fighting off viruses and bacteria. It is also important for a proper sense of smell and taste, as well as helping heal wounds.
  • Selenium – Selenium is a powerful mineral that is critical for the correct functioning of your body. It plays a key role when it comes to thyroid function and metabolism. It also aids to protect your body from any damage that has been caused due to oxidative stress.
  • Fat Burner – This shot does what it says on the tin; burns fat! It consists of Vitamin C, L-Carnitine, Leucine, Niacin, Inositol, Methionine, B12, B6, B5, B2, and B1.
  • Biotin – Biotin is part of the vitamin B family, yet it is also known as vitamin H. It plays a key role when it comes to the health of your nails, skin, and hair. It is needed in your body for the purpose of converting specific nutrients into energy.

Are IV drips safe?

With any intravenous treatment, there could be a risk of infection, but this is something we take incredibly seriously here at Omniya, and you will find our state of the art facilities and high standards of hygiene and cleanliness reduce this risk as low as it could be. Our medically trained practitioners place hygiene and sanitation at the top of their priority list. In addition to this, the products we use are fully licensed for use as a supplements by the UK’s MHRA.

What are the side-effects?

Aside from the beneficial effects of IV therapy, you could experience the following:

  • Bruising and tenderness at the needle site
  • Vein inflammation

These would usually go away within a few days, but if you are at all worried, our practitioners would be glad to speak to you.

Is there anyone that should not have IV drips?

Your suitability for treatment will be discussed with your practitioner before treatment takes place. Unfortunately, IV drips should not be used on women that are breastfeeding, pregnant women, those with neurological conditions, kidney or heart complaints, diabetes that is uncontrolled, those suffering shortness of breath and those who are ill or are suffering the after effects of a recent trauma such as illness or accident.
