Collagen keeps skin firm and supple for a youthful glow.
Collagen is the most abundant type of protein in the body, used to build everything from blood vessels and muscles to skin and bones. Collagen is the structure or ‘scaffolding’ protein that gives skin and connective tissues stability and support.

IV infusions make sure you receive and properly absorb the nutrients required for collagen synthesis. Hydration and beneficial supplements go straight into your bloodstream and are distributed to every cell.
IV treatments are also free of pesticides, antibiotics and other contaminates that can be found in food products.
