Immunity

Our immune system plays a vital role in our health, including defending against viruses and bacteria, clearing away defective cells, and facilitating the healing process. With cold & flu season hitting extra hard, it’s especially important to strengthen immunity — so even when you do get sick, it’s shorter and less severe. Our expert clinicians at Modern Age have curated the most effective treatments and products to boost immunity this year.

Featured Treatments to Boost Immunity

Immunity declines as we age

As we get older, our immune systems don’t work quite the way they used to. Our bone marrow loses its ability to produce T and B cells, which are vital for immune system response. On top of that, the immune system begins to activate itself when it shouldn’t, damaging healthy tissue in the process. This is known as inflammation.

Your best defense against viruses

  • Vitamin C

    Vitamin C defends against harmful free radicals, neutralizing them before they can damage cells in your body.

  • Zinc

    Zinc ensures your white blood cells stay healthy and function properly to defend against sickness.

  • Vitamin D3

     Vitamin D3 supports immune function, bone health, and overall wellness. Nearly 50% of people have insufficient amounts of Vitamin D, especially in winter. 

Featured Supplements for Immunity

Build your immunity from home

  • Healthy Diet & Exercise

    A nutritious diet and regular exercise have been shown to mitigate some of the impacts of aging on the immune system. 

  • Sleep

    Getting plenty of high-quality sleep has been shown to promote stem cells that are vital for the immune system. 

  • Contrast Therapy

    Try rinsing with cold water for 1-minute at the end of your shower. Switching from hot to cold temperatures gives the immune system a boost.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Immunity Bundle?
Our Immunity Bundle allows you to get our 2 immunity-boosting treatments in one convenient appointment. By combining our Vitamin C and Zinc IV drip with a D3 injection, you’re helping your body build a better defense against sickness, all while boosting hydration for immediate energy and relief. 
Why is Vitamin D essential for a healthy immune system?
Vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients for health. The effects of vitamin D on promoting a healthy immune system are especially impressive — one major analysis showed that having healthy levels of vitamin D reduced the risk of viral respiratory infections. 
Nearly 50% of people have insufficient vitamin D levels. The body only produces it when exposed to the sun’s UVB rays, so it’s important to make sure you get plenty of vitamin D from other sources in the winter.
How does Vitamin C boost with Immunity?
Vitamin C plays a key role in supporting the immune system and preventing and treating disease. Our bodies can’t produce Vitamin C on their own, so we need to rely on food and other external sources to get the benefits we need, which is where our Immunity IV and Thorne’s Ascorbic Acid come in. It also acts as a defense against harmful free radicals, neutralizing them before they have the chance to damage cells in your body.
How does Zinc impact my immunity?
Zinc ensures your white blood cells stay healthy and function properly, which helps your body fight off viruses. Our Zinc levels decline as we age and even slight deficiencies in zinc can compromise our immune function. 
How often should I get come in for Immunity treatments?
To optimize your immunity, we recommend getting immunity treatments every other week.

I am in my 30s and have been dealing with aging for the past couple of years and have been going to a Med Spa in UES so I decided to check them out. She did a fabulous job on my cheek fillers and the different was night and day immediately after the treatment. Definitely returning here without a question.

I had a great experience at Modern Age. Clinicians at other places can be curt and rush you through everything — that doesn’t happen at MA. They even had a special vibrating tool to help distract me from the Botox shots going in! This place exudes luxury and science. I will definitely be going back!!

I loved my experience at Modern Age! I got the NAD+ IV treatment and I felt incredible after. I had more energy, brighter skin, and mental clarity. Plus, the staff and studio space were bright, clean, and welcoming. I can’t wait to go back for my next treatment!

I had a great experience here. I have tried places like this in the past that felt pushy but Modern Age was not. The clinical staff here were extremely knowledgeable and kind. The space itself was beautiful and relaxing. I had micro needling done and am thrilled with the results already. Highly recommend!
