KETAMINE THERAPY LA: RETRAIN YOUR BRAIN
This powerful psychedelic drug has rapid-acting anti-depressant effects. In fact, researchers have found that ketamine can change the way the brain processes information. There’s new research conducted and published on ketamine every day. But so far, experts have observed that ketamine stimulates the regrowth of synapses or connections between neurons. This helps the brain adapt to change, which may help patients shift out of mental health disorders.
Ketamine Therapy LA is a premier & top rated provider of Ketamine therapy. We are located within the Cosmetic Rejuvenation Medical Center. Ketamine is a type of medication that is delivered through an IV infusion to help with many concerns. Ketamine has been around for decades with an established safety profile and is currently used for various medical indications. Ketamine infusions are used to treat depression, including severe treatment-resistant depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, OCD, mood irregularities, and chronic pain syndromes.
Ketamine begins to work almost immediately after the first treatment. A series of 6 infusions treatments are prescribed for the full course. Ketamine is not covered by most insurance companies.

Why Is Ketamine an Effective Therapeutic?
High Success RateResearch shows a high success rate for patients undergoing ketamine therapy. More than half of patients in a study reported experiencing significant relief after a single treatment. They feel even better after several infusions.1
Quick Onset of ActionUnlike SSRIs, ketamine’s effects don’t take weeks to manifest. Patients report feeling better after a few sessions, and often within hours. This makes ketamine an attractive option for those needing immediate relief from symptoms.
Long-Lasting ReliefBesides its quick onset, ketamine offers longer-lasting results. Traditional antidepressants are only effective as long as the patient is taking them daily. But with ketamine treatment, relief can last for weeks. Patients may even enjoy relief for months. Ketamine therapy stimulates brain changes that lead to extended relief, rather than just masking symptoms. A typical treatment plan involves six infusions over several weeks. Ketamine Therapy LA at CRMC will monitor your progress and suggest booster infusions as needed.
What Should I Expect During My Ketamine Treatment?
Receiving ketamine infusions can be nerve-wracking, but don’t fret. Our team will be with you every step of the way. You won’t be alone at any time during the treatment.
Some of our patients experience mild side effects like floating sensations and hallucinations. These dissipate once we complete the treatment. It’s normal to feel fatigued after, so you’ll need a driver to take you home. Within an hour of your session, you’ll start to get relief.
How Are Ketamine Infusions Administered in Los Angeles?
Besides the usual IV infusion method, patients can get ketamine through a nasal spray (esketamine). It works by binding to a specific receptor in the brain called the NMDA receptor. This binding leads to changes in the activity of certain neurotransmitters like glutamate. These neurotransmitters regulate mood and emotional processing.
When you receive esketamine via nasal spray, it rapidly absorbs into the bloodstream and reaches the brain. You’ll experience an immediate change in brain chemistry and a rapid reduction in depression symptoms.2
