Lockdown gave us plenty of time to take care of ourselves and slow down our pace of life. As life returns to normal and your social life vamps up, you need to ensure you get the right vitamins and minerals your body needs.
The last thing you want is for a cold to ruin your plans. Therefore, the vitamin drip has become a new way to pump your body with all the goodness you need. Vitamin drips can help to improve your immune system.
With all trending fads in the wellness industry, it is easy to question their legitimacy. That's why we are here today to unpack what vitamin drip is and why they are the next big thing. Keep reading to see what infusion drips we can offer you.
What Is A Vitamin Drip?
So, you might have heard of the vitamin drip treatment but never fully understood it. They are safely administered by medical professionals. It is super safe, and you barely feel it. The focus is on all the vitamins, amino acids and minerals you will benefit from.
You might be thinking, why do I need to get the vitamins from a drip? Why can't I just take them orally? Eating a supplement has to pass through the gastrointestinal tract, where it is absorbed. This can mix with other substances in your stomach, affecting the nutrients from the supplements.
Therefore, you won't benefit from the full effects of the minerals and vitamins if you consume them orally. Instead, vitamin drips absorb into the bloodstream, where your body can benefit from the vitamins.
This is one of the reasons it is so popular among the A-list community, as you can feel the effects a lot quicker.
They can either be used to maintain optimum wellness or proactively support chronic conditions. This can be anything from a low immune system to even curing a hangover! At SSKIN we can help to provide you with a cocktail of vitamins to suit your required needs.
Why Have Vitamin Drips Become So Popular Recently?
It is clear to see that the rise in popularity of the Vitamin drip is due to the speedy effects it has. In the current world, people are used to getting things quick and easy. The less hassle, the better.
Vitamin Drip Benefits
There are so many vitamin drip benefits; where do we start? The vitamin drip has some fantastic benefits, from enhancing your mood to improving the strength of your skin and hair. So let's dive into them.
The fastest way to get nutrients in your body
Probably one of the top benefits of a vitamin drip is the speed at which your body can absorb the supplements. As mentioned previously, if you consume a supplement orally, a lot of its nutrients are absorbed before entering the bloodstream.
A vitamin drip resolves this issue by infusing the vitamins into the bloodstream. Therefore, your body can absorb everything fully without it being diluted down.
Immune boosting antioxidants
So when we say it helps boost your immune system, you must be thinking, how? Well, your body naturally produces molecules that cause stress. Stress can lead to diseases, depression and even cancer.
However, antioxidants like vitamin C help to reduce the molecules in your body. As a result, it protects your body from them and from infection. This, in turn, boosts your immune system. Everyone can do with increasing their immune system, making this one of the key benefits of a vitamin drip.
Hydration for the Hangover
I bet you thought you would never see the day when there was a cure for a hangover!
When you drink alcohol, you become severely dehydrated. Even though alcohol is a liquid, it is known as a diuretic which causes your body to lose water. Therefore, the majority of hangovers are due to dehydration.
A vitamin drip helps to aid your hangover recovery by replenishing all the water you lost while drinking. Electrolytes are used to support the symptoms of thirst and dizziness. Such a fantastic way to help your banging head after a night out!
Reduces the signs of aging
We are in no way trying to say you need to reduce the signs of aging, but if it was on your agenda, then the vitamin drip can give you that boost.
If you opt for a vitamin drip, it will help with aging. Not only that, it can help with:
- Detox the liver
- Boost immune system
- Repair damaged cells
- Assist your metabolism
- Helps to manage autoimmune disease symptoms
Gives you natural energy
We could all use a bit more energy in a day to help us in our social, work and personal lives. Vitamin drips help to boost your energy levels.
Vitamin B and amino acids are the best to give the body the vital nutrients it needs to survive. Replenishing the body with these vitamins and minerals can help boost your natural energy levels. We recommend Alpha-lipoic acid or B-complex.

Who Should Consider Getting A Vitamin Drip?
Vitamin drips can genuinely be for anyone looking for an instance of rejuvenation. However, we couldn't recommend them enough to people who feel tired, malnourished, have a deficiency, or lack motivation.
We say this because it can help replenish your body quicker with the necessary vitamins and minerals. Especially if you are deficient in a specific vitamin or mineral, this can help to maximise your intake.
For example, those on a Vegan diet lack vitamin B12. Therefore, they might want to consider getting a vitamin drip concentrated in B12 to help give the body what it is missing.
Here at the Sskin, we offer 3 types of infusions designed to help you with your needs. Glow for the Skin, Recovery, hydration and energiser for an energy boost. Each treatment has the perfect cocktail of vitamins and minerals your body needs to feel its best.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Like any treatment you have, there are always some side effects. Luckily, vitamin drips have barely any significant side effects. Even if you experience a side effect, it is very rare and not something that should cloud your judgement.
With any injection or IV drips you get inserted into your body, there is a risk of bruising. This really depends on each person and how easily they bruise. However, this is normal.
The obvious downside to the vitamin drip is the needle. To some, this won't bother them, but others might have a fear of needles. Don't be alarmed, as the needle is not in the whole treatment; it is only used to insert the catheter. However, if you are still too scared, talk to one of our staff about numbing the area beforehand.
As we have trained medical nurses with years of experience, you will always be in safe hands. However, there is a small risk of infection just due to the slight puncture in the skin. But, again, you are in the best hands possible to help deal with the infection if that is the case, but please be assured hygiene safety is a top priority for us.
Do Vitamin Drips Really Work?
To put it simply, yes.
We have seen the benefits first-hand of the fantastic results of vitamin drips. They hydrate the body, restore the minerals and replenish the skin. It is a brainer, really.
We hope this has given you a good insight into vitamin drip and why they are the next big thing. Contact one of our registered nurses today to discuss what vitamin drip treatment will work best for you.
