IV therapy and electrolysis are two different treatments, but they do share some similarities. Both IV therapy and electrolysis can be used to treat a variety of health conditions, including allergies, anemia, high blood pressure, heart disease, and more. IV therapy is also commonly used during surgical procedures or in emergencies when the patient cannot eat enough food to get sufficient fluids into their system. Electrolysis can also be used for skin disorders such as warts or herpes outbreaks that won’t respond to other treatments. The differences between IV therapy and electrolysis are the length of time it takes to complete each treatment, as well as how much pain is involved. Because patients can sit or lie down during an IV therapy session compared to having a needle stuck into their skin for electrolysis treatments, most find that this type of therapy causes less discomfort overall. The number of sessions needed varies depending on the condition being treated; however, some conditions like high blood pressure or chronic inflammation may require multiple weekly visits whereas others like allergies only need one visit per week until symptoms subside.
