IV Therapy FAQs

I'm Pregnant, Can I Get IV Therapy?

IV therapy is safe for most pregnant women; however, we are not treating pregnant women at our Denver + Boulder spas at this time. Please contact Hydrate IV Bar – Fort Collins and Hydrate IV Bar – Arizona to discuss their individual protocols set by their respective Medical Directors.

How Do IVs Work?
Intravenous therapy bypasses the GI (gastrointestinal) tract enabling your body to absorb 100% of the vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. This method quickly and effectively hydrates your body, resulting in a more energized, healthier and better you!
What is an IV Bar?

An IV bar is a place where guests can receive IV therapy — usually a bag containing 1 liter of saline with a combination of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants of your choice. At our 3 Denver IV Bars and one Boulder IV Bar you’ll find that we do things a little differently. Although every single IV is administered by a professional registered nurse, each of our locations feels more like a spa than a clinic. With us, you’ll receive so much more than an IV — we have comfortable leather chairs, TVs, blankets, tea, coffee, essential oils, and even eye masks for those who truly want to relax while rehydrating. Wellness begins within, and we’re here to help you along your wellness journey.

Where is Hydrate IV Bar located?

We have four Hydrate IV Bar corporate spas. Three in neighborhoods across Denver — in Bonnie Brae, Cherry Creek, and Highlands Square, and one in Boulder! We also have two franchise locations: Hydrate IV Bar – Fort Collins and Hydrate IV Bar Arizona.

What Is In An IV Bag?

An IV bag is a small plastic bag that contains a unique combination of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that are diluted into 1 liter of saline. All IVs are administered by experienced registered nurses.

Who Will Administer My IV?

One of our accredited registered nurses will administer your IV during your IV Therapy.

Our medical staff consists of fully licensed and accredited registered nurses and paramedics as well as a Doctor as our Medical Director with over 30 years of experience in private practice with IV nutrient therapy. You’re in good hands at Hydrate IV Bar!

How Much Does IV Therapy Cost?

At Hydrate IV Bar, the cost of an IV ranges from $79-239, depending on the type of IV service that you order. A membership (click here to check out what our members enjoy every month!) is $139 per month. For students, memberships are $109 per month.

We pride ourselves in sourcing the best medical supplies for your IVs, and we ensure that we hire the best registered nurses to administer them. While you may be able to find more affordable IVs elsewhere, please be aware that the professionalism, education, quality, and safety could be compromised. To see our full menu, click here.

How Long Does IV Therapy Take?

IV Therapy typically takes around 30-45 minutes depending on your unique needs and the type of IV therapy you’re receiving. If you’re at Hydrate IV Bar for NAD+ IV therapy, this can take anywhere between 2 to 4 hours. NAD+ infusions are administered slower as NAD+ creates energy within your cells, and these infusions can feel differently. For those receiving NAD+ IV therapy, we recommend brining a book, headphones, your computer, etc. to your appointment to enjoy while you sit back and relax! Our staff will also offer you a complimentary tea, coffee, or water, and can provide you with a blanket as well to keep you comfortable.

Can A Child Get IV Therapy?

Children can get IV therapy, however we do not treat minors (under 18 years of age) at any Colorado, Arizona, or Texas spa.

Does IV Therapy Hurt?
Typically, not at all. We pride ourselves on using high-quality products to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. If desired, we can administer a numbing spray at the injection site prior to your IV Therapy treatment.
What Are The Potential Side Effects?

Possible bruising and soreness at the IV site
Far less common side effects include:

  • Risk of infection
  • Allergic reaction

Our medical professionals are well-versed in identifying and managing side effects in the rare case that it should happen.

How Often Can I Get IV Therapy?

  • Physical activity
  • Nutrition
  • Quality of sleep
  • Stress

Do You Offer Customized Treatments Not On Your Website?

Certain supplements are available a la carte, and we also offer the option to build your own IV! You can start with 1 liter of saline, and then choose from our IV therapy add-ons to choose which vitamins and minerals may be best for you. If you’re unsure which combination would best suit you, our Clinical Nurse Director or Medical Director would be happy to discuss a custom formula to meet your unique needs. Email info@hydrateivbar.com with any questions. Or choose “IV Therapy – Choose Later” when booking your appointment!
