RIVER NORTH — IV therapy: it's not just for hangovers anymore says the owner of a new facility opening in Marina City.
IVme plans to open a clinic by the end of the month at 346 N. State St., co-founder and medical director Dr. Jack Dybis said.
The 2,600-square-foot clinic coming to the landmark corncob towers will follow a facility IVme opened three years ago in Old Town. Though that clinic billed itself on hydration therapy and vitamin supplements that help with hangovers, Dybis said the new one at Marina City will offer a whole lot more.
"It's kind of grown up," he said.
New treatments include Botox, hormone therapy billed as a way to help with weight loss and other things, and other blood work that can help patients "have a greater say in their own health," Dybis said. Hydration therapies run from $89 to $199 per the clinic's website.
"Some people go to work out," Dybis said. "Some people are now using IV as part of their health routine."
Treatments are by appointment and usually last between 45 minutes and an hour, Dybis said. He plans to keep the clinic open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily to start, but may expand the clinic's hours later.
IVme first opened as "Revive" in 2012 but later changed its name and moved to Old Town. The Marina City clinic will be the company's second. Dybis said he's already searching for a third location.
