IV Therapy Makes its Debut at the 2023 Medical Spa Show with Liquivida


The 2023 Medical Spa Show in Las Vegas saw the introduction of IV therapy to the MedSpa industry for the first time, thanks to Liquivida and its president & founder, Sam Tejada, and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Christopher Davis. Members of the American MedSpa Association (Amspa) have been requesting more information on how to safely and effectively add vitamin IV therapy to their services and product offerings. To address this need, Liquivida hosted an educational session called “How to Deliver Real Patient Outcomes and Grow With IV Therapy” on Saturday, February 4, 2023 at 8 a.m. at the Wynn in Las Vegas.

The demand for IV therapy services has been on the rise as consumers take a more proactive approach to their health, and MedSpa owners are eager to learn how they can get involved. In the session, Tejada and Dr. Davis provided a thorough understanding of how MedSpa owners can bring IV therapy to their clients, taking into consideration factors such as quality, safety, compliance, and patient outcomes. They also shared how Liquivida’s proven business model, easy-to-use IV kits, and proprietary tools can help bring these elements together.

Dr. Christopher Davis is a highly regarded cardiologist who began his career in functional medicine as a Liquivida franchise owner. Throughout his career, he has held leadership roles in medical research, clinical development, operations, and medical affairs, and has received numerous accolades, including Castle Connolly/Sarasota Magazine Top Doctor 2011, Doctor of the Year Nominee at Blake Medical Center 2015, and Doctor of Distinction in Scene Magazine 2016. He brings a wealth of knowledge in functional medicine, bioidentical hormone replacement, and regenerative medicine to Liquivida.

Sam Tejada, a retired firefighter paramedic and successful entrepreneur, founded Liquivida with just $500 he had in his back pocket. He is now setting industry standards by collaborating with the American IV Association (AIVA) and hosting the IV BizBash, the first-ever IV industry conference designed to help IV clinics grow and self-regulate.

Liquivida prioritizes compliance and safety in its business practices, and these principles are built into its IV kits and franchise models. Its IV kits include micron filters inside of dispensing pins, medical grade refrigerators for storing sterile nutrients, ISO5 hood systems, and step-by-step instruction guides on how to prepare and administer an IV bag safely. The company offers two franchise models, both of which focus on patient safety and compliance. The first allows a medical provider to open a Liquivida Lounge within an existing medical office or MedSpa, providing an additional income stream for practitioners offering complementary services. The second option is the Liquivida Wellness Center, a storefront retail model that allows franchise owners to sell a wider range of products and services, such as medical aesthetics, sexual health, weight loss, and hormone replacement therapy, under a trusted brand.

In addition to being a health and wellness franchise, Liquivida is also a leading distributor of vitamin IV kits, nutrient vials, and regenerative solutions to doctors nationwide. The company, which started in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has since expanded to Arizona, Texas, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

During the conference, Liquivida announced the pre-release of a book on the state of the IV industry, featuring insights from Tejada and Dr. Davis. They also answered questions and provided guidance to MedSpa owners interested in adding IV therapy to their services. The 2023 Medical Spa Show was a prime opportunity for MedSpa owners to learn more about the benefits and potential of IV therapy and how to safely and effectively offer it to their clients.

IV therapy involves the administration of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) drip. This method allows for faster and more efficient absorption of nutrients compared to oral supplements, which must first be digested in the stomach. IV therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including dehydration, fatigue, and nutrient deficiencies. It can also be used as a preventive measure to improve overall health and wellness.

MedSpa owners looking to add IV therapy to their services benefited from attending the “How to Deliver Real Patient Outcomes and Grow With IV Therapy” session at the 2023 Medical Spa Show. They had the opportunity to learn from industry experts, ask questions, and gain valuable insights on how to safely and effectively offer IV therapy to their clients. The session also provided information on Liquivida’s business model and tools, which can help MedSpa owners successfully incorporate IV therapy into their services.

The 2023 Medical Spa Show was an important event for the MedSpa industry, and the introduction of IV therapy was a highlight. By offering this innovative treatment, MedSpa owners can expand their services and product offerings, attracting new clients and increasing revenue. With the guidance and support of Liquivida and its team of experts, MedSpa owners can confidently and safely add IV therapy to their business and bring the benefits of this powerful treatment to their clients.
