Skin lightening, and skin bleaching refer to the practice of using chemical substances in an attempt to lighten skin tone or provide an even skin complexion by reducing the melanin concentration in the skin. Several chemicals have been shown to be effective in skin whitening, while some have proven to be toxic or have questionable safety profiles, adding to the controversy surrounding their use and impacts on certain ethnic groups.
Our Intravenous Glutathione Skin Lightening Treatment can lighten your skin evenly. Glutathione is administered via IV and is able to deposit evenly throughout the body. Glutathione will swop up the oxidative damaged cells (which cause skin to darken) and lighten your skin naturally, safely, evenly and in a healthy manner.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a very powerful anti-oxidant. It rids the body of free radicals, toxins and oxidants. Aside from the skin lightening/whitening capabilities of glutathione, glutathione also assists with detoxification pathways of the liver, and prevents oxidative damage. Oxidative damage is attributed to diseases such as:
Lou Gerhig’s Disease (ALS),
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Therefore, not only are you enhancing the luminosity of your skin, you are also preventing the preceding diseases and increasing the longevity of your cells
How many treatments/sessions will I need?
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. The following factors will impede your results as they will increase oxidative stress:
How do I prepare for my treatment?
As this is a medical procedure, make sure you are well hydrated and have consumed a full meal before starting treatment.
What happens during treatment?
The doctor will assess your vitals (Blood pressure, pulse rate, oxygen saturation, temperature and urinalysis) to make sure treatment is viable. The doctor will then start the IV treatment. During treatment you can relax in our lazy boy chairs and watch movies or TV shows, read a book or take a nap! You will be monitored during treatment. The treatment will take anywhere from 45min – 1.5 hours, depending on your veins. At the end of treatment vitals are reassessed.
