Intravenous Immunoglobulin Therapy | Phoenix Scottsdale
Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) Therapy is a treatment option for individuals who have weakened immune systems. It is a process that involves delivering high doses of immunoglobulin, a type of protein that is found in blood, directly into the bloodstream. The procedure is carried out by a licensed medical professional at Beso Wellness and Beauty, using state-of-the-art equipment and a team of experienced and skilled technicians.
What is IVIG Therapy?
IVIG therapy involves the administration of immunoglobulin to help boost a patient’s immune system. This therapy is used to treat a range of conditions including autoimmune disorders, immunodeficiency disorders, and infections. IVIG therapy is administered through a vein, usually in the arm, and takes about two to four hours to complete.
How Does IVIG Therapy Work?
IVIG therapy works by providing the body with additional immunoglobulin that is needed to fight off harmful pathogens and viruses. The immunoglobulin used in Beso’s IVIG therapy is sourced from healthy human donors, so the patient’s body does not reject it. The treatment works by boosting the patient’s immune system, making it easier for their body to fight off infections and diseases.
Who is a Candidate for IVIG Therapy?
IVIG therapy is recommended for individuals who have weakened immune systems, including those with autoimmune disorders, immunodeficiency disorders, and infections. It is also used to treat certain neurological conditions, such as Guillain-Barré syndrome and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. Patients who are undergoing chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or organ transplantation are also recommended to undergo IVIG therapy.
What are the Benefits of IVIG Therapy?

- Boosting the Immune System: IVIG therapy helps to boost the immune system, making it easier for the body to fight off infections and diseases.
