Infusions to treat iron deficiency and anaemia
Harley Street, London
At L’Atelier Aesthetics, we believe in bringing the most pioneering, results-based treatments to our clients. Our partnership with The Iron Clinic is testament to this commitment. Based in Marylebone, this specialist, respected clinic was one of the first private clinics to offer iron infusions on an outpatient basis. Founded by Professor Toby Richards, a world-leading expert in the treatment of iron therapy, the clinic’s treatment delivers iron directly to the bloodstream through intravenous infusion.
Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anaemia and affects many people. Iron is essential for health and wellbeing as it’s present in haemoglobin found in red blood cells. Haemoglobin carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body – providing muscles with energy, helping the brain to focus and concentrate, and maintaining a healthy immune system.
If you have too little iron, you may experience symptoms such as fatigue, paleness, feel short of breath, hair loss, dry mouth and be prone to infection. What makes iron-infusion treatment so different is that it replenishes your iron stores directly. Changes to your diet and iron tablets can help over time, but most patients report feeling better in just a few days after an iron infusion.*

A new way to treat iron deficiency
Traditionally, iron deficiency is treated with iron tablets and changes to a person’s diet. Iron tablets are poorly absorbed by the body (only 4 to 16mg of a 200mg dose is actually absorbed). This means that stabilising iron deficiency and improving the body’s iron stores could take several months.
Iron infusions deliver iron directly to the bloodstream for far quicker results.* A small plastic tube (cannula) is inserted into the vein of your arm before a slow iron infusion is administered via an infusion pump containing the correct level of iron over the appropriate period of time. The procedure is similar to having a blood test.
*Individual results may vary.
