Benefits of Ketamine Therapy in Los Angeles

Coping Ability

Ketamine therapy provides a calming effect, helping you cope better with stressors.

Long Lasting

Because the beneficial effects can last for days or weeks, daily sessions won’t be required.

Medical Oversight

Careful consultation and review of medical history by a licensed professional ensures safety.

The Ketamine Therapy Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this relaxing and compassionate one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. The provider will also evaluate your symptoms, listening with understanding and respect. If your provider determines that ketamine therapy in Los Angeles is the best treatment option, your sessions can be scheduled.



The consultation phase determines the proper dose. During your infusion session, your provider will cleanse and disinfect the injection site on your arm and gently place the IV port. Your dose bag containing the ketamine and hydration fluid will be attached, and then you can relax for an hour as the medicine enters your bloodstream. Although most times the therapy takes place on a different appointment from the initial consultation, some patients with life-threatening conditions might need to undergo the therapy immediately.



During the IV infusion session, it is common to feel light and mellow. After the entire dose has been delivered, your provider will ask you to remain at Younique Surgery Center and Med Spa for a few minutes to an hour. This is done to ensure your safety and monitor your vitals for the appearance of any possible side effects. The light and mellow sensation usually fades a few minutes after the treatment is completed. Most patients experience mood improvement after 1 or 2 days. This effect can last for a few weeks.
