Glutathione Therapy for Skin Brightening & More Radiant, Glowing Skin
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger that is required for detoxification of toxins and maintaining cellular health. Oral glutathione is not as readily absorbed as it is when it is given intravenously; therefore, an IV Push (pushed into the vein toward the end of an IV) of glutathione is administered to ensure effective delivery of the nutrient directly through the bloodstream into the cells for maximum absorption.
How Glutathione is 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 inhibits the melanin production therefore reduces the concentration of pigmentation. As a result, it lightens and evens the skin tone.
Glutathione used in combination with a Vitamin C IV is an even more potent formulation that will slow the rate of free radicals or unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. This powerful combination, deposits evenly throughout the body when given via IV, to eat up the oxidative damaged cells (which cause skin to darken) and lighten the skin naturally, safely, & evenly.

How Many IV Sessions are Required to Achieve Desired Results?
Glutathione when given intravenously causes whitening of the skin all over, reduction in acne, age spots and other skin blemishes — resulting in flawless, radiant and youthful looking skin. Truly a no downtime procedure, injectable glutathione only takes 30 minutes or less to perform and you can go back to your usual activities after the session. The effects of injectable glutathione work faster when compared to the oral treatments.
The procedure is relatively simple and involves injection of pure injectable glutathione directly into your system via the intravenous route. Each session takes about 30 minutes and there is no downtime, so patients can continue with their regular daily routines.
The amount of IV sessions of glutathione depends on how many shades lighter you want your skin tone to be. One round of treatment is 10 IV’s that will be performed twice a week for 5 weeks. Typically one round of treatment (10 IV’s) can lighten the skin from 1 to 3 shades lighter. Depending on how light you would like your skin, you would need to commit to more rounds of treatment.
How Long will the Results Last?
To maintain the lighter skin tone treatment must continue, so patients should expect to come in for regular visits to Dr. Nirvana. Frequency will depend on your ability to maintain anti-oxidant levels. Generally to maintain results patients need treatment once a month. The following factors will impede your results as they will increase oxidative stress:
- Poor Diet
- Environmental Toxins
- Poor Sleep
How do I Prepare for my IV Sessions?
As this is a medical procedure, make sure you are well hydrated and have consumed a full meal including 30-50 grams of protein before starting treatment.
