  • How can NAD supplementation benefit me?
    NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) supplementation offers diverse health benefits that may include increased energy, metabolism, reduction of food cravings, improved cognitive function, potential anti-aging effects, mood support, increase in physical performance and reduction of chronic illness symptoms. Ongoing research suggests a role in cellular repair and longevity, with reported improvements in skin elasticity and well-being. Scientific research is still ongoing, and some claims may not be universally accepted. Individual result may vary.
  • What can I expect from an IV drip?
    You can expect better results than taking vitamins in pill form. Today’s lifestyle is fast-paced and busy. Many people have difficulty getting enough nutrition in their diet which creates deficiencies that can make you feel run down and tapped out. Oral supplements are only 20-30% effective due to incomplete absorption through the digestive system. After an IV drip you can expect to feel the internal difference and superior benefits of IV vitamin hydration delivered directly into the bloodstream for complete absorption.
  • What is the difference between Microneedling and PRP?
    Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses hyaluronic acid serum and tiny sterile needles to trigger collagen and elastin production for a more youthful look. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), commonly known as the 'vampire facial,' harnesses the power of your own platelet-rich plasma, or your personal healthy elixir—your blood—to amplify growth factors and achieve remarkable results. The process involves a small needle draw of blood, followed by spinning the vial to separate red blood cells from platelets. Rest assured In both procedures, your face is numbed with a topical cream, and there is minimal downtime. Expect some redness (looking sunburnt) for 12-24 hours. Please refrain from wearing make- up, sweating, or sun exposure for 2 days after the procedure.
  • Why do you use Xeomin instead of Botox?
    There are several anti-wrinkle neuromodulators on the market. Botox®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, Jeuveau®, and Daxxify®. All of these products have the same active ingredient, take 3-14 days to fully kick in and typically lasts 3-4 months. Ultimately product choice can come down to personal preference. Xeomin® is our product of choice because it is the only one from the list above that is purified. Xeomin® is a double- filtered smart toxin with fewer ingredients. The purification process of removing unnecessary proteins makes an immune response and resistance to the product less likely. That means if you are regularly do injections should shouldn't need to increase the dose over time to maintain your desired look. We also love Xeomin® because the molecule weighs less giving our customers a more comfortable, lighter feeling in the face for a natural-looking result without feeling frozen. You can read more about the filtration process in our online blog.
  • Why choose Vitaflow for your NAD infusion
    Our team includes critical care nurses with cardiothoracic, ICU, and Emergency Room expertise. Their experience ensures your safety and thorough monitoring, determining your suitability for NAD infusion. Unique Infusion Approach: What distinguishes us is our unique approach. We include a complimentary Vitamin Enhancer Drip that includes Glutathione. This special preparation primes your body for NAD infusion, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the treatment. We also provide NAD shots administered into muscles for quicker NAD benefits with less time required.
  • Are the procedures painful? 
    Our clients report zero to minimal pain. Prior to microneedling & PRP the face & scalp are numbed with a topical cream for comfort. Many of our clients are so relaxed that they fall asleep during the service. Xeomin anti-wrinkle injections are performed with a tiny insulin sized needle. We also have devices to use during the injection to minimize discomfort. The injection takes 5-10 minutes to complete. IV treatments involve a quick prick of the skin with a small pediatric-sized needle. The needle is then replaced with a flexible small catheter the remains in your arm throughout the infusion. Most people cannot feel the catheter within the skin. Our experienced nurses are trained to make this process quick and easy. If you’re worried about the procedures or the discomfort, talk to our nurse during your assessment or schedule a consult with our medical director to discuss what to expect.
  • Can I get IV drips at my house? 
    Absolutely! Avoid traffic and and save time. Our experienced nurses can come to your home, office or athletic event. Travel fees vary according to location. Ask about discounts to host a group event for Drips or Xeomin ( anti-wrinkle injection).
  • Are there any side effects of NAD supplementation?
    Generally mild and transient side effects include flushing or warmth during the treatment. Individual responses vary; communicate concerns with our healthcare team to provide medications as needed for these symptoms. Not everyone is suitable for NAD, there are some contraindications for administration. Schedule a consultation with our expert team for personalized guidance and to explore transformative NAD benefits. Your well-being is our priority!
  • What are the benefits of IV drips? 
    IV drips may help with a variety of health conditions such as headaches, migraines, fatigue, jet lag, hangovers, fibromyalgia, inflammation, brittle skin, hair and nails, colds, flu, allergies, age-management, collagen production, metabolism, tissue regeneration, athletic performance & recovery, mental clarity, focus, managing chronic disease, and pain relief. The IV infusions give your body a boost of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and electrolytes. IV drips do not cure disease, they provide rapid and complete absoption or vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids.
  • How do NAD shots and NAD IV drips differ?
    NAD shots, taking only 30 minutes, provide a quick and convenient boost. NAD IV drips deliver a higher dose compared to shots. Our low-dose NAD drip takes 2-3 hours, while the high-dose NAD drip takes 3-4 hours, ensuring a more extended and sustained release of NAD. Both methods deliver NAD, allowing you to choose based on your preferences, schedule, and lifestyle. Trained professionals administer both methods, ensuring careful monitoring throughout the treatment. As an additional benefit, we include a complimentary Vitamin enhancer drip prior to your NAD infusion to improve the overall effectiveness, maximizing the benefits of the NAD treatment.
  • What is NAD and why is it important?
    NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a vital coenzyme in cellular processes, impacting aging, energy production, metabolism, and DNA repair. Aging can lead to declining NAD levels, affecting overall cellular function.
  • How long does an IV drip take? 
    The duration varies based on the chosen IV drip treatment. Typically, infusions last 30-45 minutes, while NAD drips take 2-4 hours. When booking online, you'll find the total duration for each service. Consider adding extra minutes for questions beforehand, then relax with a cup of tea during your "me time."
  • Are IV infusions safe?
    IV infusions are generally low risk and have very few contraindications. However, there are certain medications, medical conditions and allergies that would prevent some clients from being eligible for all of the treatment options. All patients at Vitaflow (for all all services) will complete a medical history & health assessment that will be reviewed by our medical director to clear you for service. During this evaluation you will speak with the medical director, discuss your concerns, ask questions and she will determine what service will best fit your needs. Vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, & oxygen saturation levels) will be taken. Our nurses have ER, ICU and cardiac hospital experience and will be monitoring you throughout the infusion. Vitaflow stays up to date on all IV guidelines and compounding regualations from the USP, which sets standards for the quality, purity, strength, and consistency of medicines. We also use a ISO laminar flow hood for preparing IV drips to provide a sterile environment to minimize the risk of contamination during the compounding process. We are commitment to patient safety and quality care.
