There’s a little something new in town, in The Laser and Skin Clinics on Pembroke Street to be exact, and in the form of REVIV IV Therapy! You may have seen me this week on Instagram stories with a drip in my arm during my lunch break, and then head straight back to work with a skip in my step! So, let me give you more details, because I got a lot of q uestions as a lot of you were very intrigued!
REVIV IV Therapy was developed to get the edge you need to live a lifestyle without boundaries. Naturally their first clinic was in Miami, and logically their next choice was Las Vegas. Their mission to inspire the world to live life beyond limits went global with clinics in New York, Hong Kong and London. A little closer to home for us, Anna in The Laser and Skin Clinics Dublin now offers the full range of REVIV’s IV infusions and vitamin booster shots which you can book online here
I’ve spoken about Anna and her team time and time again on my social media and here on the blog and she is just the ultimate professional, highly trained and with a wealth of knowledge. She continues to upskill and offer clients the newest and most advanced techniques available across her three award-winning clinics (Dublin, Mullingar and Athlone) so it’s no surprise she’s ahead of the curve with this new treatment!
What is REVIV IV Therapy
REVIV IV therapies have been formulated to provide our bodies with the vitamins, nutrients, fluids, electrolytes and anti-oxidants that we need. There are five different IV therapies to choose from, their specially formulated IV drips and in addition there are 4 vitamin booster shots. Administered through a drip, they are packed full of vitamins, electrolytes, minerals and antioxidants.
Why REVIV IV Therapy
IV therapies have a 100% absorption rate and get to work to replenish your hydration levels, restore your vitamin and nutrient balance, refresh your cosmetic appearance, and leave you feeling REVIV’d. They are fast acting and offer long-lasting benefits. It’s not a replacement for your oral intake of vitamins, more a supplement to quickly rehydrate and replenish nutrients, and restoring your body to peak balance. Absorption rates are higher than oral intake because this is directly into your system
When should I get REVIV IV Therapy
The vitamin injections are designed for anyone looking for an instant boost. They’re quick to administer but can help give you a natural energy boost, power up your fitness, help your body to burn fat or promote healthy nails, hair and skin. You can also take them if you’re feeling run down, suffering from a cold, or suffering with a hangover, they can help relieve these symptoms and get you back to feeling better.
Which REVIV IV Therapy should I get
There are two categories, wellness IVs for maintenance and recovery IVs for recuperation. You should chat to Anna and the team to determine the best one to suit your needs during your consultation, because they are bespoke per person if you add on boosters based on what you require. You might want these as a once off, or you might find a combination to suit you weekly / monthly etc depending on your lifestyle. I got the Megaboost one, but next time I will look to add boosters to see the affect they have too!

Can anyone use REVIV IV Therapy
A majority of people can, but you will have a consultation and medical screening before hand. They also checked my blood pressure and blood oxygen saturation ahead of the intravenous infusion. You can’t get it done however if you are pregnant or have heart problems but this can be discussed through and assessed with Anna and the team during your consultation.
Does REVIV IV Therapy Hurt
At the end of the day, it is a needle going into your arm and some people can have a fear of needles. I found it painless but my pain threshold might be higher than yours and I personally wouldn’t be averse to needles. The needle is administered by highly experienced and trained professionals but if you need, they can apply a numbing cream, I didn’t get one though and found it fine! In terms of receiving the treatment you don’t feel a thing, I was given a blanket just incase I got cold but I didn’t feel this at all.
How quick will I feel the effects of IV Therapy?
It’s hard to say as everyone is different. And it depends on your ‘before’ state eg if you are severely hungover the difference will feel more immediate. IV therapies flush the body of unwanted toxins and help achieve balance. Personally for me, I had a heavy week before this of eating, drinking, and attending premieres, awards and events, so I was tired and sluggish (not hungover though) and a bit stressed. I wasn’t expecting it to have an immediate effect but it really did help me through another busy week where I’d usually be zapped of energy. So it was perfect timing! I will try it again for sure when hungover and when I’m jet lagged to see how REVIV IV Therapy fits into my lifestyle regularly.
How much does REVIV IV Therapy cost
The infusions start from €150 and the boosters start from €50, but you will find her full price list here.
Let me know if I have missed anything from this post, hopefully not but drop me a mail or message if you have any further questions. I will update the blog on my thoughts on the other IV Therapies as and when I try them. An almost instant hangover or jetlag cure? That would be amazing. And that weightloss one? Gimme!
