What is Intravenous (IV) Therapy?

IV Therapy allow the nutrients to enter directly to the bloodstream at the cellular level and support the complex function of many biological systems. With IV infusions, BCI Clinic can safely deliver larger doses that would not otherwise be possible via traditional oral application.

IV therapy can be used to maintain optimal wellness. Our registered nurses administer treatment to our clients under the close supervision of a doctor to ensure you get the right IV therapy to suit your needs. 

How Does Intravenous Therapy Work?

An IV fluid drip involves a saline-based electrolyte solution that contains a formula based on your needs for vitamins and nutrients. An IV drip delivers these essential nutrients and fluids directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive tract. There’s no wait time, and the nutrition is instantly available to remedy your body’s health and wellness needs.

In total, an IV drip takes around 30 to 45 minutes for a complete therapy session. This includes completing a few forms prior to your infusion as well as a quick health assessment.

Our Registered Nurses here at BCI Clinic have over two decades of combined medical and cosmetic aesthetics experience. After your initial consultation, one of our clinicians will walk you through the procedure, go over any possible concerns you may have, and begin administering your IV Therapy.

What Can Intravenous Therapy do?

At BCI Clinic, we offer 4 different types of IV Vitamin therapy: Immune, Radiance, Energy and Boost. Each uniquely designed to tailor to specific health and wellness goals.

immune drip

provides the necessary vitamins, minerals, and amino acids for improved immune function, which enhances the body’s ability to protect itself -including fighting infections, healing efficiently, repairing cells, and recovering faster.

Radiance Drip

provides a youthful glow to the skin, enhances its elasticity, and targets fine lines and wrinkles. It is the perfect pick-me-up when the skin looks dull and in need of a refresh, allowing it to regain its brightness from within. IV Radiance offers a powerful combination of amino acids which triggers the body to produce its own Glutathione, an important antioxidant that prevents cellular damage by neutralizing free radicals and reducing signs of aging.

Energy Drip

The key components in this solution are dextrose combined with B vitamins and magnesium, all of which are crucial in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the cellular energy source.

Boost Drip

provides hydration, vitamins, and minerals replenishment. The key components include vitamins A, B, C, D, E and potassium. IV Boost also offers an overall wellness enhancement, by helping with something as common as dehydration and mineral deficiencies in the body.
