Glutathione is a very powerful antioxidant that protects the body by targeting and destroying reactive oxygen molecules and free radicals. Since time, Glutathione has been used in prevention and treatment of cancer, neurological diseases and cardiovascular diseases. Human body produces glutathione naturally. However, poor diet, increased pollution levels, stress, smoking, trauma, aging, infection, and radiation all deplete your body’s reserve of glutathione. Apart from all its countless benefits, it was also discovered that glutathione is very safe and effective to brighten and even out skin tone.
What is Glutathione therapy?
Glutathione is used in combination with Vitamin C and is administered intravenously. This is because it is far more effective when administered intravenously rather than given orally. This powerful combination of Glutathione and Vitamin C fights free radical damage supports cell health and integrity and prevents collagen damage. This reversal of oxidative cell damage boosts skin health and leads to even-toned skin.
How does Glutathione therapy improve my skin tone?
Glutathione speeds up cell turnover, replacing damaged cells with new cells giving your skin a bright, even, glowing tone. Glutathione inhibits the production of melanin (the pigment which gives skin its colour), resulting in brighter looking skin.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions each person needs vastly differs. The exact dosage of glutathione administered will vary from patient to patient. Generally, 6 sessions are recommended, twice a week, followed by maintenance sessions which vary according to individual response.
Are there any side effects of the treatment?
Glutathione is a molecule that is naturally found in the body. The side effects of replenishing the body’s Glutathione levels with intravenous therapy are highly unlikely. Your treatment is carefully monitored and tailored according to the response of your body. At site of injection mild bruising and pain may occur. Post injection some patient may feel nausea, headache, mild diarrhea.
Is glutathione therapy FDA apprroved for skin whitening?
It’s important to note, glutathione injections are not approved by the FDA. And since there are not much scientific studies that prove its effects and safety with good evidences, opting for this injection is at your own discretion.
In which conditions should glutathione therapy be avoided?
It is contraindicated to give glutathione while a person is taking cancer chemotherapy drugs since glutathione increases the ability of the liver to process chemicals. This may cause the chemotherapy to be less effective. It is also not recommended to be given at the same time as any other IV products.
What results can I expect?
Results are variable and depend on an individual’s response, thus a specific outcome cannot be guaranteed. However, during consultation doctors can offer an approximation of results you can expect from the treatment.
Will my results be permanent?
Results are not permanent. Once you have attained the skin tone you are hoping to achieve, we will customize a maintenance program for you. To maintain increased antioxidant levels, it is important to take care of diet and exercise and avoid the factors which are detrimental to skin health like smoking, alcohol, and lack of sleep discipline. Regular use of sunscreen and avoiding excessive sun exposure is crucial.
Is it necessary to take oral glutathione tablets after injection therapy?
Glutathione injection is more effective than oral tablets in skin brightening. But frequent glutathione is not recommended. So after 5-6 doses of glutathione injection, results are maintained by oral tablets of glutathione, healthy diet and personalised daily skin care routine.
Can I start oral glutathione tablets on my own?
Glutathione therapy require some basic blood investigations and detailed medical history. Dermatologist will tell you expectations from therapy, safety, about possible side effects, duration of therapy. So you should consult dermatologist and then only you should start this treatment.
