How Is Glutathione Used for Skin Lightening?

Our skin colour is determined by the melanin production in our body.  Melanin is synthesized by melanocytes located in the bottom layer of the epidermis. Darker skin means there is a higher production of melanin in the body.

Glutathione inhibits the production of melanin in the body and, therefore, reduces the concentration of pigmentation. This helps lighten and even out the skin tone. 

Glutathione, when combined with Vitamin C IV, becomes a more potent formula that helps slow the rate of free radicals or unstable molecules that damages collagen production and causes skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. This powerful combination when given via IVF, deposits evenly throughout the body and eats up oxidative damaged cells and aids in lightening the skin tone naturally and evenly.

How Many Sessions Are Required To Witness Glutathione IV Therapy Benefits?

Injectable glutathione requires about 30 minutes or less and you can immediately resume your normal activities right after the procedure. Compared to oral treatments, injectable glutathione works faster.

This procedure is really simple. In this process glutathione is injected directly into your system via the intravenous route. The number of IV sessions of glutathione depends on how many shades lighter you want your skin tone to be. One round of treatment includes 10 IV’s which is performed twice a week for 5 weeks.

One round of treatment can make your skin tone 1 to 3 shades lighter. Depending on how light you would like your skin to be – you need to commit to those rounds of treatment.
