The medical and beauty industries are getting more impressive by the day – they're always unveiling new technologies that promise to increase your health and your skin's beauty. But some of the newer treatments involve needles, surgery and lasers, and not every gal is cool with it. One celebrity trend that's popped up is anti-aging IV treatments. Do you think you'd try it?
According to Allure Magazine, Leaf MD Skincare in Beverly Hills, California, offers a Vita-Infusion Facial that involves an IV filled with vitamins C and B, calcium gluconate and magnesium chloride, which is a modified version of a mixture that's been studied and shown to benefit those with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
The celebrities who do this (Oprah Winfrey and Vanessa WIlliams reportedly have) get an energy boost and a glow when amino acids are added to the concoction.
Sounds pretty simple, but wouldn't you rather get your vitamins and minerals from a healthy diet and a dose of a product like G.M. COLLIN – Active C Serum? Fruits, veggies, lean protein, low-fat dairy and a good BORGHESE – Cura-C Anhydrous Vitamin C Body Treatment session can get you the same results – probably for a lot less money!
