IV therapy is a method of nourishing the body by delivering nutrients and hydrating fluids intravenously. This treatment is also referred to as IV vitamin hydration therapy, IV infusion therapy, and IV drip therapy.

When we consume vitamins and nutrients orally, only about half of their benefit is absorbed. When the body takes in these compounds directly through the bloodstream, however, the effect is magnified, and relief from cold symptoms, hangovers, or jet lag is virtually instant. 



It is quite rare that a patient is not a good candidate for IV therapy, as this restorative treatment can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions and concerns, including:
  • Hangovers
  • Hair loss
  • Anti-aging
  • Post-surgical healing
  • Recovery from illness
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic pain
  • Low energy levels
  • Poor sleep
  • Detoxification
  • Immune system support
  • Athletic performance enhancement
  • General wellness



ard-certified dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer, a renowned expert in state-of-the-art skin treatments and body contouring procedures, has been a long-time proponent of IV Hydration Therapy and the benefit of antioxidant hydration, vitamins, and minerals on our overall health.

Each of our hydrating IV cocktails contains a distinct blend of nutrients to target a specific issue, so we will need to gather some information from you in order to determine which option will be most beneficial for you. For your safety and satisfaction, you will be asked about the symptoms you want to treat, whether you have any known allergies or sensitivities, and your current medical conditions and prescribed medications prior to receiving IV drip therapy at our IV Lounge.

If Classic, Detox, Primetime, Perform, or Glow is not the ideal choice for you, a member of our exceptionally trained staff can speak with you about our personalized IV infusion services and/or recommend a more appropriate selection from our IV therapy menu, which also includes:

  • B100 – To protect yourself from heart disease
  • Clarity -To ditch brain fog and find relief from headaches and migraines.

  • Thin – To rev up your metabolism and reach your target weight faster
  • Vitamin C – To strengthen your immune system


When you arrive for your IV micronutrient infusion session, you will be taken to the treatment area and seated. Once you are settled in and comfortable, a member of our highly qualified medical staff will need to insert a small needle into one of your veins.

In the vast majority of cases, IV therapy is administered via a vein in the patient’s arm. To ensure that a suitable vein is easily accessible for IV insertion, wear short sleeves or a shirt with sleeves that you can roll above your elbow.

The inserted needle will be connected by a tube to the IV bag containing your micronutrient infusion. Over the next 15-45 minutes, the solution will drip at a steady rate from the IV bag and into your blood stream.

You will be monitored throughout your IV drip therapy session, so we can adjust the drip rate, if needed, to accommodate your needs and ensure your treatment is as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

Our IV Lounge is a great place to rest and recharge. Many of our patients look forward to their IV vitamin hydration therapy sessions as a time to unplug and unwind. However, some patients like to bring a magazine or book to read during IV therapy; others use their smart devices to get on social media, check their email, or play games. You are also welcome to bring headphones, so you can listen to music or watch videos.


While there is no downtime or recovery following an IV therapy session, post-treatment experiences vary in relation to the patient’s reason for treatment and the specific IV cocktail involved. Often, patients will notice improvements within minutes of completing the session.

However, when a patient has considerable toxicity within the body or is healing from surgery or injury, it is not realistic to expect an instant recovery. Multiple IV infusions may be necessary to restore optimal health and achieve a patient’s desired outcome.


Dr. Emer encourages cosmetic surgery patients at his practice to take advantage of IV therapy as a post-operative treatment. After a surgical procedure, the body needs adequate fluid and fuel to power the healing process. IV therapy is the fastest way to rehydrate the body and rectify nutrient depletion, which means an IV infusion like Primetime is an invaluable ally for avoiding delays in healing and shortening your overall recovery time.

For maximum impact, Dr. Emer advises post-op IV therapy in combination with additional surgical aftercare therapies. In his experience, patients who complete an aftercare protocol that includes IV therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, hormone peptide therapy, lymphatic massage, radiofrequency skin tightening, and/or muscle toning not only heal faster but also enjoy the most dramatic aesthetic improvements.

How Dr. Emer Does IV Hydration Therapy Differently
While an IV micronutrient infusion can be performed as a standalone intervention, from Dr. Emer’s holistic perspective, IV therapy is often just one component of a comprehensive treatment solution.

His advanced, combination treatments pair cosmetic procedures like laser or radiofrequency skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and facials that work from the outside with treatments that work from the inside, such as IV therapy, hormonal optimization, and hormone peptide therapy.


When the body is in balance, health, wellness, and vibrance tend to follow. Unfortunately, most of us struggle with chronic imbalances due to environmental pollutants, toxicity, stress, suboptimal immune system function, poor diet, aging, and many other factors. Extreme athletic training, undergoing surgery, and suffering an injury can put our bodies at an even greater deficit.

Achieving optimal function across the body’s systems necessitates proper hydration and an adequate supply of the various vitamins and minerals involved in initiating and carrying out bodily processes. We are meant to get these nutrients from food. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people fall very short of meeting their nutritional needs through their diet.

Nutrient deficiencies are even an issue for health-conscious individuals who are diligent about taking oral supplements containing herbs, vitamins, and minerals. While oral supplements taken consistently at the right dose can positively impact our health, there are limits to what can be accomplished with this approach.

IV therapy can make a greater amount of nutrients available in a drastically shorter time frame than oral supplementation ever could. One disadvantage of oral supplements is that ingesting fluids and nutrients orally requires them to be processed by the digestive system before becoming available for use in the body.

Not only does this take time, but there are numerous factors that can compromise the body’s ability to absorb nutrients via this system. In contrast, the nutrients and fluids in an IV infusion are delivered directly into the bloodstream, and the full dose of each vitamin and mineral included is immediately available to fuel our bodily processes.

IV Therapy is a great way to recover after surgery or a cosmetic procedure, after a sporting event or injury, or even a hangover. Feel you best today.


The price associated with IV therapy will depend on what kind of nutrients/IV fluids you are receiving and how many times the treatment will be repeated. For instance, you could have IV therapy to boost immunity, cure a hangover, improve cognitive ability, for bio-hacking, and much more. At Emerage Medical and LIVV Natural Health, we have various types of IV therapy packages ranging anywhere from $100-$1,000 per IV. We also have specialty therapies and monthly IV therapy packages.
The duration of your IV therapy will depend on the amount of treatment IV fluids, which is determined by your needs. Our quick and easy 100ml hydration bag only takes 10-15 minutes to administer. The slightly bigger 250ml package takes 25-30 minutes, while a larger 500ml bag takes anywhere from 35-40 minutes.

At Emerage Medical and LIVV Natural Health, the three main types of IV fluids we use are:

  • » Saline- This is the normal saline which acts as our base fluid.
  • » Vitamins, minerals, and amino acids- We use high-quality vitamins such as the B Vitamins and Vitamin C, which are useful in boosting immunity, skin health, and healing wounds.
  • » Glutathione- Glutathione is rich in antioxidant properties with anti-aging benefits. It also can improve metabolic function and fight stress and inflammation.
Yes, IV therapy has a host of benefits to the body and overall health. It delivers much-needed nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly to the bloodstream, where it is absorbed 100%. This is in contrast with taking these nutrients orally, which only results in 30% absorption. Our IV therapy also delivers customized nutrients that your body needs, which enables you to enjoy optimal health.
IV infusion medication can be dangerous because, without proper caution, air can get into the IV line, causing air bubbles. If air bubbles get injected into the vein, they can travel to the heart or lungs, putting the patient at risk for a heart attack or pulmonary embolism. An improper injection procedure can also cause infiltration. Infiltration occurs when the fluid being delivered leaks to the surrounding tissue causing pain, swelling or tissue damage.
It is possible to have your IV drip done at home, only if it is administered by medically qualified personnel such as a nurse, doctor, or physician’s assistant. At Emerage Medical and LIVV Natural Health, we are currently offering at home-based IV therapies, but only for parties greater than 10 people. If you are interested in receiving IV therapy at home, please call our office for additional information.
Yes, at our IV therapy clinic in San Diego, Vitamin B12 is one of the primary nutrients we give in IV therapy. Vitamin B12 is crucial in keeping our nerves and blood cells healthy. Having a sufficient amount of this vitamin is vital as it protects us from anemia, which would leave us feeling weak and fatigued with pale skin.
How often you should do IV therapy will depend on your health, situation, and needs. For example, if you need an IV treatment to cure a hangover, then you will have this done once. A patient receiving High dose Vitamin C IV therapy in, for example, will require more sessions. Since all our treatments are customized according to your needs, we will advise you of the right IV therapy treatment schedule for you after we assess your symptoms, review your current and prior medical information, and learn about your treatment goals.
You can take the nutrients used in IV therapy orally, but the results will not be felt immediately. For example, if you try curing a hangover by drinking water or electrolytes, it may take several hours until you feel better. IV therapy, on the other hand, will be absorbed into the body immediately, which means you will feel better quicker. Additionally, when you take nutrients via IV, you are assured of 100% absorption, while oral administration only achieves 30% absorption.
Having a 30 minute IV therapy session and living on IV fluids only are two entirely different things. People who live on IV fluids are likely suffering from severe health conditions such as Crohn’s Disease, obstructed bowels, or shortened intestines. It is essential to consult a specialist for advice on long term IV fluid use.
IV drips should not hurt. All you should feel is a small pinch as the needle pierces the skin. If it hurts, then it may have been wrongly inserted. At Emerage Medical and LIVV Natural Health, all our staff members are are highly trained to place IV needles and safely administer IV therapy, so our patients do not experience pain during this treatment.
Yes, it does. At Emerage Medical and LIVV Natural Health, we have what we call LIVV Revive, a hangover IV fluid therapy specifically designed to cure hangovers. Depending on your needs, you can have the 100ml bag that costs $100, the 250ml bag that goes for $175 or our best-seller, the 500ml bag going for $250. This therapy quickly detoxifies you while delivering much-needed nutrients to your body.
IV drips are used to deliver nutrients to the body intravenously, that is, through the veins. This is a far quicker method as opposed to say oral administration, as it takes the nutrients directly into the bloodstream. This is an efficient way to do this as it ensures 100% absorption, which leads to quick action.
When an IV drips too fast, it can lead to what is known as a vaso-vagal reaction. This can result in fainting, increased perspiration, and low blood pressure. At Emerage Medical and LIVV Natural Health, all our IV therapies are administered by highly qualified and professional staff, who will ensure that your IV therapy drip is properly administered.
IV medication goes to work immediately as it is delivered directly into the bloodstream. Some IV therapies at our San Diego clinic take as little as 15 minutes to administer, within which you will feel energized and ready to bounce back to your daily routine. Some of our customers who have gone through treatments such as PRP injections for shoulder pain have reported feeling better in one week.
Death is highly unlikely, but improper administration of a drip can result in an infection in the area, vein irritation, and inflammation. Receiving too much of certain fluids can also cause serious health issues if proper consultation is not done beforehand. For instance, a patient with congestive heart failure can be endangered by fluid overload.
The majority of our clients have had IV therapy successfully without any adverse side effects. As a precaution, however, it is useful to note that IV therapy may have possible side effects, including nausea, heavy perspiration, lethargy, and allergic reactions.



IV vitamin hydration therapy is a great way to recover after surgery or a cosmetic procedure, after a sporting event or injury, or even a hangover, and the applications of this gentle, effective treatment do not stop there.
