Glutathione Treatment

Glutathione is an antioxidant naturally found in human cells that neutralizes free radicals, boosts the immune system and detoxifies the body. It can also cause skin lightening by converting melanin to a lighter color and deactivating the enzyme tyrosinase, which helps produce the pigment.

How long will it take to see results?

The benefits of glutathione are usually seen after at least six- eight weeks of treatment. How quickly you see improvement in your skin will depend on how consistently you come for your treatments, your general health, and your metabolism (slower results with a slow metabolism). Glutathione is POSSIBLY SAFE for most adults when taken by mouth, by inhalation, or by injection into the muscle or into the veins. But the possible side effects are not known.

Usually we use 10000units mixed with high doses of vitamin C and administer it intravenous on a weekly basis. Most patients do not get a bleaching effect, however a generalised lightening of 1-2 shades usually occur. The skin becomes brighter with 12-16 sessions. Glutathione does not improve dark pigmentation problems like melasma.
