GLUTATHIONE is the master antioxidant that counteracts free radicals, boosts the immune system and detoxifies the liver. Normally produced by our body, our glutathione levels take a dip at age 35 to 50. Stress, cigarettes, caffeine, alcohol poor diet, toxins, over-the-counter medications, aging and a lot of the mundane things in our life deplete the body of this important antioxidant.
What are the benefits of Glutathione?
Glutathione is the master antioxidant, which means that it has the ability to bind itself to toxins and free radicals for removal from our body through urine or bile. Glutathione has 3 amino acids – cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid.
The most important of which is the sulfur-rich amino acid is cysteine that traps toxins in the body. This is rich in eggs, garlic and whey protein. Aesthetically, patients take glutathione for its whitening side effect, whilst others take it because it decreases the effects of aging and increase longevity.
How soon can patient see the whitening effects of Glutathione? Is it better to have Intravenous Glutathione compared to Oral Glutathione?
The effect would depend on the patient’s skin type. Most patients would notice glow on their skin after 2 weeks. At Revival Clinic we use only the highest quality, manufactured by established pharmaceutical brands. IV Glutathione has faster onset of action compared to the oral glutathione.
Does Glutathione have anti-aging effects as well?
Yes, glutathione has anti-aging effects since it helps our body eliminate toxins and wastes that may hasten our aging process. It will also help to try placenta injection in conjunction with glutathione for this purpose.
What are the suggested dosages to get the best effect? How many times a week can a patient come for Glutathione injections?
600mg, twice per week is beneficial.
How many treatments/sessions will I need?
The amount of IV sessions of glutathione depends on how many shades lighter you want your skin tone to be. Typically IV’s will be performed twice a week for 4- 5 weeks. Typically one round of treatment 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. Like any medical or cosmetic procedure, results may differ from person to person.
