Glutathione + Vitamin C IV   

FAQ

When will I see results?

It depends. Everyone has different effects since it all depends on how your body processes it- depending on your diet, activity, lifestyle, weight and height, age and metabolic factors. However, most of our clients can see noticeable change on their skin (lightening or refinement) after 4-6 vials.

What are the side effects?

As long as you don’t have allergies to the product components, you should not be alarmed. Sometimes, you can feel mild side effects like mild headache and nausea right after the infusion. The detoxification reaction (Herxheimer reaction) you may feel is normal, as Glutathione’s major role is being the ‘Master antioxidant’ of the body.

Do I get back to my original colour when I stop?

Because Glutathione acts by reducing melanin (black pigment of the skin), you must take measures to avoid your body’s melanin production. Melanin production is triggered by sun exposure or lack of sun protection, inflammation, skin damage (e.g. infection, wounds, acne) medications and hair removal treatments.

Do I still need sunscreen since it makes me light?

YES, sunscreen is a must and full body protection is what you should have since you need a higher UV precaution with this procedure.

Do I need a Doctor’s prescription when I do this?

Yes, you need to have a quick doctor’s consultation (which we can provide on the day), whether face to face, via phone or video call conversation. Please ensure you disclose everything that is necessary for your health and safety.

I am taking other supplements, will that be okay?

Yes, as long as your vitamin supplements do not exceed your recommended intake. Some supplements may actually increase Glutathione and Vitamin C serum absorption, so there is nothing wrong with that.

Is the lightening effect permanent?

It will be, if you maintain your Glutathione and Vitamin C supplementation (may be oral) or IV injection. Our recommended maintenance is 1-2 sessions per month after you achieve your targeted colour or skin tone. It is also best to have a healthy diet (high protein) and lifestyle with reduction of alcohol and caffeine intake and smoking.

 

 

INFORMATION

Glutathione Hoovers-up Toxins and Keeps You Young and Glowing All Over

Glutathione is the single most powerful antioxidant your body produces and recycles. It’s made in the liver, the organ most responsible for detoxifying your body, so optimal liver function is absolutely essential. Vitamin C (also called Ascorbic Acid) is a water-soluble vitamin, and is essential to our bodies for collagen synthesis. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and our skin greatly benefits from Vitamin C because of its unique collagen-forming properties.

When it comes to skin lightening, a combination of Vitamin C and Glutathione are given. These two main active ingredients acts to naturally lighten your skin and reduce excess pigmentation.

Glutathione reduces melanocytes which produces melanin. Reducing the melanin in the body would make your skin fairer. It also helps determine the balance of light and dark pigments (pheomelanin and eumelanin) in our skin and will take up the oxidative damaged cells (which cause skin to darken) and lighten your skin naturally and safely.

High doses of Vitamin C will also boost our natural glutathione levels and inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase. By doing this, less melanin is produced. Vitamin C repairs skin damage after sun exposure and also acts as a mild exfoliant. By getting rid of dead skin cells, which contain melanin, the skin becomes smoother and lighter.

What is Glutathione and what does it do to the body?

Our bodies Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that inhibits the formation of free radicals. It repairs damage caused by stress, pollution, the sun, radiation, cigarette smoke, etc. It plays an important role in detoxifying our bodies while supporting the immune system.

The highest concentration of Glutathione is found in the liver and is the main antioxidant of that organ, making it critically important in the detoxification and elimination of free radicals. Our bodies make its own supply but it doesn’t make enough, as glutathione levels decreases as the body ages.

Vitamin C (also called Ascorbic Acid) is a water-soluble vitamin, and is essential to our bodies for collagen synthesis. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and our skin greatly benefits  from Vitamin C because of its unique collagen-forming properties.

Collagen is a vital part of the skin that gives it elasticity and makes it look young and firm. One of its vital roles is to protect other molecules from oxidative damage and is essential in would healing. Vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant. It fights free radicals that cause skin aging and darkening, and also increases your body’s supply of other important antioxidants such as Vitamin E and Glutathione.

Glutathione & Vitamin C Injectables:

Both Vitamin C and Glutathione can neutralize toxic hydrogen peroxide and free radicals. Glutathione should be taken together with Vitamin C to work properly to keep Glutathione in it’s absorbable form.

Taking antioxidants is making sure that you get them to the cells, not just to your stomach. This is why injections of antioxidants is so effective. Injecting the antioxidants directly into the blood stream will get them to the site of need without the complications of going unharmed through the digestive system into the blood stream.

Glutathione’s Role in Skin Lightening:

Skin color comes from a pigment called melanin. The more melanin is produced, the darker your skin gets. Many things can increase the production of melanin, such as UV radiation, smoke, sun exposure, estrogen imbalance, some medications and pollution.

Vitamin C repairs skin damage after sun exposure and also acts as a mild exfoliant. By getting rid of dead skin cells, which contain melanin, the skin becomes smoother and lighter.

A person taking Glutathione should take Vitamin C. This is to keep Glutathione in its reduced form and will release the potential of Vitamin C’s derivatives lightening properties. The lightening process starts in the dermal layer (inside the skin) working it’s way to the surface in the epidermal layer.
