(Intravenous Vitamin Therapy)
WHAT IS GLUTATHIONE?
Glutathione is a potent anti-oxidant produced naturally by the liver. It is found widespread in many of the foods we eat such as vegetables, meats and fruits. Glutathione injections have been used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions such atherosclerosis, male infertility and to reduce the side effects of cancer treatments. Glutathione has also been used in Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Following intravenous Glutathione therapy our patients often report a subjective increase in energy and performance.
Intravenous glutathione used in combination with Vitamin C is an even more potent formulation that can be used to mop up skin-harming oxygen free radicals that cause damage to the skin's DNA and collagen. The skin’s hydration is often the first to improve, followed by a glow and luminosity, and finally skin lightening.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET THE RESULT I DESIRE?
An increase in energy and focus is often experienced from the first treatment session. Improvement in skin hydration and luminosity is commonly seen from the second treatment session. The lightening effect differs from person to person and effects are often noticeable from the 8th - 10th treatment session. We recommend a treatment protocol of weekly sessions for one month followed by treatment sessions every second week until the desired results are attained.
INTRAVENOUS GLUTATHIONE PROCEDURE?
This is truly a no downtime procedure! One of our Aesthetic Medical Doctors will acquire venous access through which the Glutathione will be slowly administered. The entire procedure takes 30 minutes or less to perform and you can go back to your usual activities directly after the session. The effects of injectable glutathione are a lot faster compared to the oral route.
IS GLUTATHIONE A NOVEL TREATMENT?
The skin benefits of intravenous glutathione have only recently been utilised by western medicine. However, in Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and a host of other Asian countries intravenous glutathione therapy has been used extensively in dermatology clinics for a very long time. Glutathione has been touted as the essence behind the modern beautiful, porcelain Asian Skin.
