It’s amazing how much damage we can do to our skin in just a few decades. Tanning, poor diet, pollution, and smoking all contribute to cellular damage that takes a toll on our skin. The subsequent dryness, thinness, blotchiness, and dark spots only get worse as we age and our skin loses its ability to renew itself quickly and efficiently.
While drugstores are filled with creams and concoctions claiming to fix dullness and other issues with complexion unevenness, few actually perform as promised. Thankfully there’s an alternative to drugstore trial-and-error: Glutathione IV Therapy.
What is Glutathione IV Therapy?
Glutathione is a powerful anti-oxidant with several health benefits, and when administered intravenously, it’s deposited evenly throughout the body, speeding up cell turnover and replacing damaged cells with new ones. Glutathione brightens your skin naturally and safely. Most treatments take about an hour.
What results does Glutathione IV Therapy provide?
In addition to lightening and evening your skin tone, Glutathione IV Therapy removes skin blemishes from scars and pigmentation, suppresses the formation of acne, produces collagen to enhance elasticity, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. After just one treatment you’ll notice your skin is radiant and supple.
What other benefits does Glutathione IV Therapy provide?
Not only does Glutathione enhance the luminosity of your skin and rid the body of free radicals, toxins, and oxidants, but it also prevents oxidative damage, which is attributed to cancer, diabetes, skin disorders, liver disease, and cardiovascular disease. Glutathione also aids in an improved immune system, better memory, and an overall improved state of mind and focus.
What happens during treatment?
Before the treatment, a doctor or medical assistant will assess your vitals to make sure treatment is viable for you. If it is, an IV will be inserted in your inner arm while you relax for about 45-90 minutes and watch a movie, read book, or even nap. You’ll be monitored during the entire treatment and your vitals will be reassessed at the end.
How many treatments are needed for optimal results?
The number of Glutathione IV Therapy sessions you need will depend on your skin lightening goals. One round of treatment involves 10 IV sessions performed twice a week for 5 weeks. On average, one round of treatment can lighten the skin from 1 to 3 shades lighter.
How long do results last?
The results of your glutathione injections will last for a few months. Maintenance is required to maintain your lighter skin tone. The frequency of maintenance treatments will depend on your ability to avoid factors that increase oxidative stress and impede your results, including smoking, alcohol, a poor diet, poor sleep, stress, and environmental toxins.
