How are glutathione IVs 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 helps to inhibit the melanin production, therefore, reduces the concentration of pigmentation. As a result, it lightens and evens out the skin tone. Glutathione has many therapeutic applications as well, such as detoxification, reduces oxidation, helps to heal and improve liver function, to name a few.

At Hawaii Natural Medicine, Glutathione is used in combination with vitamin C and vitamin and mineral co-factors which creates an even more potent formulation. This infusion helps slow the rate of free radical damage and neutralize oxidative stress which can result in damage to the collagen, cause skin dryness, and contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C will also help rebuild and maintain collagen while optimizing the circulating levels of glutathione in the body. The co-factors will help the body absorb and utilize the glutathione.

The procedure is relatively simple and involves an injection of glutathione, vitamin C, and vitamin co-factors directly into your system via the intravenous route. Each session takes about 15-20 minutes and there is no downtime.

How many treatments/sessions will I need?

We generally recommend 10 treatments performed once or twice a week.   Like any medical or cosmetic procedure, results may differ from person to person.

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 and sun exposure. The following factors will impede your results as they will increase oxidative stress:

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Poor Diet
  • Environmental Toxins
  • Poor Sleep
  • Stress
