At MediPro Pain & Performance, we offer IVs and Peptides in Portland OR. Intravenous (IV) therapy involves the infusion of medications directly into a vein. These medications are used to treat a variety of conditions, including dehydration, infections, inflammation, and pain. Peptide therapy is a non-surgical treatment for wrinkles. Peptides work by causing the body to produce more collagen, the protein that gives skin its youthful appearance.
How Do IV's and Peptides in Portland OR Work?
IVs in Portland OR
Intravenous therapy delivers medications, fluids, and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, where they can begin working immediately. This is also known as an "IV drip." Benefits of intravenous therapy include faster relief from symptoms, improved absorption of the substances delivered, and a decreased number of side effects compared to oral medication. This treatment option can treat a wide variety of conditions, including dehydration, nausea, headaches, anxiety, allergies, cold and flu, asthma, migraine, sprains and strains, inflammation, muscle pain, and much more.
Peptides in Portland OR
A peptide is a small chain of amino acids that are the building blocks of protein molecules in the human body. These small chains of amino acids are necessary for many functions in the body, including healing from wounds and building and strengthening bone and connective tissues. The amino acid chain is also an important component of collagen. Collagen is the main structural component in the skin as well as the bones and teeth. It helps to maintain skin elasticity as well as promote healthy gums and prevent bone loss.
When a wound occurs, the body sends out signals to platelets in the blood to begin clotting the blood at the site of the wound in order to stop any bleeding and begin the healing process. Peptides help to encourage this process. IV therapy can also be used to deliver peptide therapies to relieve pain and inflammation.
