FAQ

What is intravenous (IV) therapy?

IV therapy is a method of delivering vital fluids and micronutrients directly into the bloodstream. RestoreIV treatments offer patients maximum absorption benefits, leading to increased energy, improved sleep, enhanced recovery from athletic events or surgical procedures, superior immune support, anti-aging effects and stress relief.

Who administers and supervises RestoreIV treatments?

All IV treatments are designed and administered by one of RestoreIV’s skilled medical practitioners. Physicians conduct an interview and medical history screening with each patient prior to treatment.

How long does an IV therapy treatment take?

This depends on patients’ specific needs. Some treatments take just a few minutes, while longer-lasting IV drips can take 15-60 minutes.

Where do patients get RestoreIV treatments?

Patients can receive treatments in RestoreIV’s spacious office in East Falls, in the comfort of their own homes through our concierge service. Many of our patients enjoy reading a book, listening to music, or using their laptops while they have their session.

Is IV therapy safe?

Yes, RestoreIV therapy is safe. Vitamin & nutrient drips have a long history of safety and efficacy, and all of our infusions are administered by our expert medical staff.

Is IV therapy painful?

Because of RestoreIV’s expertise, there is only a tiny pinprick sensation when entering the vein. It’s recommended that patients hydrate a few days before their treatment, which allows the doctors to more easily access veins.

Are there any negative side effects?

IV therapy is generally very well tolerated and therefore poses minimal health risks.

What is the difference between IV therapy and oral vitamins?

It all comes back to absorption. A small percentage of oral vitamins are ultimately absorbed into the blood stream, and high doses of oral vitamins can cause irritation. An IV therapy treatment delivers 100% of each vitamin directly into the bloodstream, which is why patients experience an immediate effect.

Are RestoreIV treatments covered by insurance?

In many cases, insurance does not cover these treatments. In some cases, treatments may be reimbursed if an insurer agrees the treatment is medically necessary.
