IV Vitamin Therapy
Our skin + hair drip is designed to help replenish the vitamins and minerals that support strong, healthy skin and hair on a cellular level. The result? More radiant, youthful-looking skin and healthy, lustrous hair.
"There is a strong link between the gut and our skin, which is why being deficient in certain vitamins or having an unhealthy bacterial profile in the gut can manifest in the skin’s appearance."
Dr. Harpal Bains
Certain vitamin deficiencies can lead to an increase in the signs of ageing. Our skin + hair drip is suitable if your skin or hair is feeling really dull and you wish to restore a more youthful appearance to it.
Our skin + hair drip can also be beneficial for those with:
When we break it down, this drip is packed with heavy-duty beauty nutrients:
Let’s take a look in more detail at what each of these do for the skin and hair.
Vitamin C: Does important work behind the scenes, aiding in the biosynthesis of collagen, which benefits the skin, nails and hair. As an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, it aids in the removal and neutralisation of the toxins and oxidants from the body that contribute to ageing.
B complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B12): Essential for the maintenance of healthy skin. B complex promotes the formation of red blood cells which oxygenate the follicles to keep hair growing healthily. It also aids skin cell turnover. B12 in particular helps metabolise amino acids, which provide hair with moisture and strength. B complex is a great all-rounder for better skin and stronger hair and nails.
Glutathione: A powerful antioxidant, glutathione helps the body get rid of toxins and heavy metals from the liver, lungs, intestines and kidneys (toxins from pollution, stress, smoking, diet, medications) which can build up and contribute to ageing. It helps reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone, and gives skin an amazing glow. It also prolongs the anagen stage of the hair cycle, which stimulates regrowth and can lessen hair loss.
Zinc: This mineral plays an important role in the division of hair follicles and hair growth. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are needed for the production of collagen fibres and elastin, which both contribute to the appearance of firm skin. Zinc can also help strengthen hair follicles and reduce shedding.
+ Add-on: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) This nutrient is an effective remedy for all inflammatory processes and can be added into our skin + hair drip.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is an antioxidant that works to neutralise harmful free radicals, and reduce inflammation. It has the unique ability to regenerate itself alongside other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione, CoQ10 and Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD). ALA also induces collagen biosynthesis, which helps maintain plumpness in the skin.
In our experience, many hair and skin problems are caused by underlying gut issues, stress, nutrition and even hormonal imbalance. Whilst we will, of course, provide you with a one-off drip if desired, our speciality is our medically-led approach, which involves looking at the whole body and addressing any underlying issue(s), rather than just the symptoms. We offer diagnostic testing if required.
All IV drip patients receive an in-depth consultation with our IV nurse included in the price. This gives us a chance to discuss your medical history and any concerns about your skin and hair so we can be sure you are getting the most appropriate drip for your needs. We can tailor your IV drip accordingly.
Unlike other clinics, our drips are not pre-mixed and left on a shelf to oxidise (spoil) – we mix them freshly for you at your appointment.
IV vitamin therapy at Harpal Clinic includes an initial consultation with our IV nurse.
