Hangovers be gone. Now Vegas has a 29-minute solution to any hangover, jet lag or time in the sun dehydration issues with the new Reviv medispa, now open in The Underground at the MGM Grand. Dr. Andrew Garff and three of his ER doctor friends opened the luxury IV transfusion spa as a way to help the dehydrated speed up their recovery time.
Here Nevada board certified doctors deliver one of four intravenous fluid rebound infusions that zap a hangover after a night on the town, dehydration after a day in the sun or jet lag after a long flight.
Packages include the HydraMax Hydration Infusion, a powerful combination of saline and electrolytes; the MegaBoost Wellness Infusion with multivitamins, antioxidants and immunity support; UltraVive Recovery Infusion with vitamin B12 and anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory medications; and the Royal Flush Infusion, a combination of the vitamins of the MegaBoost Wellness and the recovery vitamins of the UltraVive Recovery plus some detoxifying Glutathione. All go for $99. Want seconds? An additional infusion is just $20.
While the docs all have ER training and the staff all has a background in medicine, they still require guests to go through a medical pre-screening to ensure everything is A-OK beforehand. Then guests go to one of four massage chair rooms (and these chairs are some of the most relaxing massage chairs ever) or the far more social living room furnished with a couch and a high-definition television. After 29 minutes, all should be right with the world.
