At IV League Injections Clinic, we provide IV Glutathione therapy to help you achieve bright and glowing skin. There are many skin brightening products on the market, but most are topical creams and can be harmful to the skin. The use of IV Glutathione works from within to reduce toxins which in turns reduces levels of melanin and hyperpigmentation.
Our Vancouver office offers Glutathione IV vitamin therapy to patients wanting to achieve skin lightening in gradual sessions. We recommend at least three sessions to achieve the best results. The IV drips only take half an hour and you can use your phone while sitting in the comfort of our massage chairs in our designated IV therapy room.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a small molecule that acts as a powerful antioxidant in the body. It is produced naturally in the liver and is involved in many important biological processes, including the elimination of harmful toxins, the protection of cells from damage, and the regulation of skin pigmentation. Intravenous (IV) administration of glutathione has become increasingly popular as a means of increasing levels of this important molecule in the body, with the goal of improving liver and skin whitening.
What does Glutathione do for your liver?
The liver is one of the key organs that benefits from IV glutathione. This organ is responsible for detoxifying the body and removing harmful substances, including drugs, alcohol, and environmental toxins. Glutathione plays an important role in this process by binding to toxins and facilitating their elimination from the body. IV administration of glutathione can help to increase the liver's ability to detoxify harmful substances, leading to improved liver function.
Glutathione for Skin Brightening
In addition to its beneficial effects on the liver, IV glutathione has also been shown to improve skin health and skin whitening. The skin is exposed to a variety of environmental insults on a daily basis, including UV radiation, pollutants, and toxic chemicals. These insults can generate harmful free radicals that can damage the skin and contribute to a range of skin problems, including aging, pigmentation, and wrinkles. Glutathione acts as an antioxidant in the skin, neutralizing free radicals and protecting the skin from damage.
Skin brightness is a desirable quality that is often associated with youthful and radiant skin. The skin can become dull and lackluster over time due to a variety of factors, including exposure to environmental pollutants and UV radiation, aging, and genetics. Improving skin brightness can help to restore a more youthful and radiant appearance. Glutathione has been shown to inhibit the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for giving skin its color (Kojima et al., 2009)(Kim et al., 2015; Kim et al., 2018). By reducing the amount of melanin produced in the skin, IV glutathione may lead to a lighter skin tone and improved skin whitening (Kojima et al., 2009).
Glutathione as an Anti-Oxidant
In addition to its beneficial effects on the liver, IV glutathione has also been shown to improve skin health. The skin is exposed to a variety of environmental insults on a daily basis, including UV radiation, pollutants, and toxic chemicals. These insults can generate harmful free radicals that can damage the skin and contribute to a range of skin problems, including aging, pigmentation, and wrinkles. Glutathione acts as an antioxidant in the skin, neutralizing free radicals and protecting the skin from damage. IV administration of glutathione has been shown to improve skin hydration, elasticity, and overall appearance, leading to a more youthful and radiant complexion.
Who can use Glutathione IV therapy?
Anyone can take it except people who are on antipsychotic and/or chemotherapy medications. It's important to note that while IV glutathione has been shown to be safe and effective in many individuals, more research is needed to fully understand its effects. Doctors and dermatologists from all over the globe have often used glutathione during skin treatments and therapies. Additionally, as with any medical treatment, it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional before starting an IV glutathione regimen.
In conclusion, IV glutathione is a multi-faceted approach for improving liver and skin health, as well as promoting skin whitening. By increasing levels of this important antioxidant in the body, IV Glutathione can help to improve liver function, protect the skin from damage, and potentially lead to lighter skin tone. It's also worth noting that promoting skin lightening as a desirable outcome can reinforce harmful cultural norms and contribute to the marginalization of people with darker skin tones. Instead of striving for lighter skin, it's important to celebrate and embrace diversity in all its forms.
