If you haven’t heard of IV infusion, chances are you’ve been living with a seriously sluggish Wi-Fi connection. Celebrities like Rihanna, Khloe Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen and Adele swear by the benefits of these intravenous vitamin cocktails to boost energy levels, metabolism and rejuvenate the skin. You may not have their jam-packed, jet-setting schedules, but take our advice for when stress and pollution have you feeling down. Trade in your Swedish body massage for a relaxing day at India’s first IV lounge.

Drop Bar by Isya Aesthetics, New Delhi is the mastermind of dermatologist Dr Kiran Lohia. The swanky new space lets you pick between eight different types of iv infusions and customised boosters (complete with millennial names), all while you sink back in the comfort of recliner chairs and music. Plus, there’s an ensuite nurse to look after your every need. Try the Basic or Thirsty drops if you’re in severe need of hydration this summer or Woke or Lit to give your skin a luminous glow. But if you really need to feel like royalty, Dr Lohia recommends The Magic Markle treatment that’s packed with vitamins and Glutathione to improve your energy and hydration levels, boost your immunity, improves hair health and give you the Duchess of Sussex’s other-worldly glow.  

You can count on the experts at the lounge to recommend the right number of sessions for you to get maximum benefits. One session can set you back by anything from Rs 3,500 to Rs 17,000.
