In short no, it does not hurt. But while everyone is different, the overall consensus from our patients on the process of starting an IV is “wow, that wasn’t bad at all!”.
After a small and fast ‘pinch’ the IV will be inserted and you can start relaxing in our zero-gravity massage chairs until your treatment is completed.
Once finished, the provider will circle back to disconnect your IV and apply a small bandaid to get you on your way.
Also, to ease any potential discomfort we offer an optional numbing medication in the form of Lidocaine available by request.
