We all lead very busy lives – whether it’s work, family, working out at sports or even partying and socialising - we often seem to burn the candle at both ends, which can lead to feelings of being run down, stressed, prone to illness, being over tired and even just plain worn out.
Thankfully there is a solution - an intravenous or IV vitamin therapy treatment, delivered by a drip, which can give you that instant ‘pick-me up’. Aimed at rebooting a tired, exhausted body, boosting your immune system, improving athletic performance and even as an anti-ageing treatment by replacing lacking vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that our bodies need to function.
Such vitamin infusion treatments have proven to be a celebrity favourite with the likes of Rhianna, Cara Delevingne, Madonna and Simon Cowell using them as a health treatment so they can keep up with their hectic schedules.
Many people turn to energy drinks and other stimulants when they need to ‘keep on going’, but this is not a healthy choice and provides only temporary relief from the symptoms, combined with a ‘come down’, as also experienced with ‘sugar highs’; all of which is simply not good for us. Eating properly and taking oral multi-vitamins is also an option, but often this isn’t practical and our bodies won’t always absorb them correctly or make the most efficient use of what we take in by mouth. Vitamin therapy, given by direct infusion into your vein, is a much better and quicker way of delivering all the vitamins and minerals that your body may be lacking.
At Hilton Skin Clinics we offer the Intravita range of intravenously delivered vitamin therapy.
Intravita is a professional product comprising carefully created IV drips which are manufactured in a laboratory environment, aimed at delivering safe and effective doses of key ingredients.
By establishing your symptoms, lifestyle and health presentation, such as tiredness, malaise, stress, anxiety, low immune system etc. we can determine the key vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and energy boosting ingredients that your body could benefit from having ‘an injection of’.
Direct delivery by IV drip gets the deficiencies addressed in the quickest way to get you back at the top of your game.
There are a variety of key vitamins and minerals that our bodies require to function properly, which help to give us healthy skin, bones, blood and make sure that all the primary systems within our body work properly and effectively. Some of them are so important that if we were missing them entirely from our diet we could eventually die – I’m sure you have all heard about early sailors dying from scurvy at sea due to a lack of vitamin C from fresh fruit and vegetables. Vitamin C is indeed an essential nutrient to help us to maintain good health and development but with busy lives it can often be lacking from our daily diet if we don’t get our ‘5-a-day’.
Another important vitamin is B-12, this plays an important role in our blood and ensuring that our brains and nervous system work normally – particularly useful to not be deficient in this if you want to be on the top of your game for work.
But it’s not just vitamins, despite the name of this treatment, anti-oxidants and minerals are also vitally important to our bodies.
Glutathione is an anti-oxidant that helps our bodies to metabolise iron and repairs our DNA. This anti-oxidant is commonly deficient in sports people, such as athletes and anyone pushing their body with intensive training for an event like as a marathon or endurance activity.
Magnesium Sulphate is also key as low levels of magnesium in our bodies can give us muscle cramps, feelings of weakness and even the shakes.
The mineral Calcium Gluconate is also important for our bones and is often used when we see low levels of calcium in the blood due to a vitamin D deficiency, which is more common in the winter months when there is a lack of sun which is how we get most of our vitamin D; not from our food.
All the bespoke options within the Intravita range are able to ‘put back’ these core supplements.
It’s very common to be deficient in certain vitamins and minerals that our body needs to function properly and to be as healthy as possible. We often don’t eat the right foods, drink the right drinks (including too much alcohol), or get enough sleep to provide our body with the primary supplements that we need to maintain the right balance.
The bespoke Intravita IV drips that we offer at Hilton Skin Clinics will literally ‘put back’ a variety of vitamins and minerals to treat deficiencies to improve feelings of tiredness, malaise, stress or anxiety, as well as boosting a poor immune system which can leave you feeling run-down, over-worked and even over-partied. This range even has drips which can assist with anti-ageing treatments, and make a good addition to any aesthetic treatment programme that you may be undertaking to improve the condition of your skin, and to maintain a healthy and youthful complexion.
The Intravita range offers a variety of bespoke preparations to truly target the health symptoms and lifestyle concerns that you are trying to address.
Solutions available include:
We also have single booster treatments of the IV B12 Drip for a boost of vitamin B12 and IV Antioxidant Drip which contains a boost of glutathione.
Following a consultation with our specially trained staff, who will take information about your lifestyle, as well as a full medical history, you will undertake some general health checks such as assessing your blood pressure, pulse, BMI etc. We can then determine the best IV vitamin solution for you from our tailor-made selection.
The treatment involves the placement of an IV cannula into the vein in your arm, just like you may have seen used in hospitals. The drip bag is then attached and you will be asked to sit quietly whilst the vitamin infusion slowly goes into your body through the vein in your arm. During this time, people often read, listen to music or use laptops and smart devices, in fact it can be so relaxing that you may wish to just have a sleep during the treatment. A member of staff will check on you regularly to make sure that the treatment is progressing well.
After treatment you will be left with a small mark on your arm where the cannula was inserted, no different than if you had given blood for example. This will heal very quickly. Many people find that the vitamin infusion treatment has a quick effect in making them feel instantly ‘better’ and up-lifted. This feeling will continue as your body properly absorbs and distributes all the vitamins and minerals to where they are needed to treat the deficiencies and improve your well-being.
To get the maximum results from your IV vitamin drip treatments you will usually have one per week for a period of a month, sometimes longer, depending on your overall health and well-being. You can then have monthly maintenance sessions. In fact, sometimes a single booster is all you need to feel back at the top of your game.

The clinic is always spotless and has a warm inviting atmosphere. Staff members are extremely knowledgeable about all of their treatments, and they even took the time to speak to me over the phone relating to questions about my treatment before I even booked a consultation. 5 star clinic and would highly recommend to anyoneBarbara Sopata
I have had 4 treatments here for laser hair removal. The staff are extremely friendly and the product knowledge is excellent. The Treatment itself, well what can I say except… Pain FREE and after the first patch test, I noticed a significant reduction of hair.S. Iqbal
The Soprano Laser Hair removal is a virtually pain-free treatment and I am very impressed with the results so far and I am only half way through my course. Looking forward to the final results!Rizwana Ali
The staff are friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. When I arrived everything was explained to me and it was better than I had originally expected. I can’t wait for the next session of microdermabrasion!! I would now recommend them to my friends too.Kate Monterian
The clinic really give you good advice in how to look after your skin and didn’t seem too pushy when selling what I needed. I ended having the EDS Dermaroller for my face and neck. I was so worried it would be so painful but surprisingly it's not that bad at all but I did have some anaesthetic cream applied before hand.Jul K
