What is the IV Therapy Process at Zen Dermatology? 

  1. Schedule your IV therapy consultation 

If you want to see if IV therapy is right for you, call our office and schedule an IV therapy consultation to go over your symptoms, how IV therapy can help, and if you are a good candidate for IV therapy. 

  1. Get your bloodwork done 

After your consultation, your provider will want to get bloodwork to make sure that your liver and kidneys are healthy and functioning well. Once your results are back and looking great, you will be scheduled for your in-office IV therapy treatment! 

  1. Enjoy your treatment 

On the day of treatment, we recommend you come in comfortable clothes and provide a urine sample to check your liver and kidneys again before your treatment. If everything looks great, you will be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy your IV treatment in our comfortable heated massage chairs. Treatment time can vary from 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 minutes.
