Skin Lightening IV
Glutathione IV Therapy for Skin Lightening & More Radiant Skin
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger that is required for detoxification of toxins and maintaining cellular health. Oral glutathione is not as readily absorbed as it is when it is given intravenously; therefore, an IV treatment of glutathione is administered to ensure effective delivery of the nutrient directly through the bloodstream into the cells for maximum absorption.
How is Glutathione Used for Skin Lightening?
Skin color is determined by the production of melanin, which is produced by melanocytes in the bottom layer of the epidermis. Increased melanin in the body means the darker the skin will be. Glutathione inhibits the melanin production therefore reduces the concentration of pigmentation. As a result, it lightens and evens the skin tone.
Glutathione can also be used in combination with Vitamin C as an even more potent formulation that slows the rate of free radicals that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. This powerful combination, deposits evenly throughout the body when given via IV, to eradicate oxidative damaged cells (which cause skin to darken) and lighten the skin naturally, safely, & evenly.
Benefits can Include:
• Whiter Skin
• Removal of skin blemishes (Scars, pigmentation, uneven skin tones)
• Production of collagen to enhance elasticity
• Eradication of acne, blemishes and pimples
• Enhanced immunity
• Improved energy and reduced fatigue
• Improved quality & texture of skin
• Enhanced radiance, glowing, and moisturized skin
• Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
How Many IV Sessions are Required to Achieve Desired Results?
Glutathione when given intravenously causes whitening of the skin, reduction in acne, age spots and other skin blemishes — resulting in flawless, radiant and youthful looking skin. Intravenous glutathione treatments only take 30 minutes (or less), and you can go back to your usual activities after the session. The effects of IV glutathione are much faster and superior compared to the oral administration route.
The amount of IV sessions of glutathione depends on how many shades lighter you want your skin tone to be. One round of treatment is 10 IV’s that will be performed twice a week for 5 weeks. Typically one round of treatment (10 IV’s) can lighten the skin from 1 to 3 shades lighter. Depending on how light you would like your skin, you would need to commit to more rounds of treatment.
How Long will the Results Last?
Maintenance is required to maintain the lighter skin tone. Frequency will depend on your ability to maintain anti-oxidant levels. In general, once a month is required to maintain results. The following factors will impede your results as they will increase oxidative stress:
• Poor Diet
• Environmental Toxins
• Poor Sleep
• Nutritional Deficiencies
What are some of the Early Results that I can Expect?
Within a few weeks, you should notice that your skin is healthier looking. If you are prone to acne or other skin conditions, you should notice cleaner more vibrant skin. The results are seen from the inside out. Patients also report an increase in energy and healthier hair. Results, however, may vary.
Will I get that Un-natural ‘Bleached Look’?
Absolutely not, results are gradual and natural. The skin may be lightened in a subtle yet progressive fashion. Skin tone may get lighter but still maintain a very natural look.
Are there negative long-term effects?
