During the ageing process, our skin becomes dull, damaged and loses its natural glow. This happens due to a number of reasons like pollution, stress, toxins etc. These factors lead to hyper pigmentation, dark spots, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and acne. Hence, it is important to maintain a bright and even skin tone.
Skin Whitening Injection is one of the most popular techniques for achieving brighter and healthier skin. This treatment uses Glutathione to offer skin-lightening effects, combat (some) physical manifestations of aging, and improve uneven skin tone. This is achieved by deactivating the tyrosinase enzyme, which is responsible for pigmentation.
Melanin pigments are produced in specialized cells called melanocytes on your skin. These pigments give your skin its brown tan and help protect it from UV rays to prevent cellular damage. These pigments are produced by the conversion of amino acids tyrosine and phenylalanine, and the tyrosinase and phenylalanine proteins in the melanocyte. Glutathione inhibits the formation of tyrosine and phenylalanine, thus reducing the production of melanin and leading to lightening of the skin.
Glutathione injections are given intravenously, bypassing the stomach’s digestive enzymes. This method of administration is more efficient than oral supplements, and it allows the highest concentration of glutathione to reach your bloodstream. Most patients have eight to ten sessions of IV Glutathione therapy for skin lightening, and it can take six to eight weeks to see the results. It is recommended that you get your Glutathione injections from an experienced doctor to avoid side effects like abdominal pain, allergic reaction or Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.
