Skin lightening without the bleached look

2017-07-05 06:01

IF you thought we’d entered an era of being comfortable in your own skin, you’d be mistaken.

Some estimates put the worth of the global skin-lightening market at anywhere between $10 and $20 billion.

Glutathione exploded when [actresses] Mshoza and Khanyi Mbau got involved with it, and that was a huge exposure for that particular treatment.

Want to lighten your skin tone? You can with the Glutathione Skin Lightening-Whitening Treatment.

Our Intravenous Glutathione Skin Whitening Treatment can lighten your skin evenly. Glutathione is administered via IV and is able to deposit evenly throughout the body. Glutathione will swop up the oxidative damaged cells (which cause skin to darken) and lighten your skin naturally, safely, evenly and in a healthy manner.

Not only is this treatment effective for most people, it is also a safe and natural treatment that involves principally the use of intravenous (IV) vitamins, minerals and amino acids, including glutathione beneficial for your health. Glutathione helps eliminate toxins from the body, supports the central nervous system, aids in fertility and supports a healthy and strong immune system.

It’s the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease — yet you’ve probably never heard of it. It’s the secret to prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more, and necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s disease

The Skin Brightening IV glutathione is a good alternative to skin bleaching creams, which can damage, scar, inflame, discolour or irritate the skin, or microdermabrasion, which is painful, and may also irritate the skin and sometimes worsen hyper-pigmentation. Mercury toxicity and poisoning is not uncommon from these products. Another common ingredient, hydroquinone, is banned in many countries because of the harms it can cause.

What is glutathione? Glutathione acts as a powerful antioxidant and cleanses the liver of chemicals, hormones and pollutants. It is the most powerful antioxidant in the brain, where in low levels it is associated with serious disease. Glutathione is made from three amino acids: glutamate, cysteine and glycine. It is also safe and natural method to help restore uneven, sun-damaged or hyper-pigmented skin.

How does it work? Your skin’s pigmentation (skin colour) occurs because the body produces melanin. Melanin is produced by the melanocytes in the bottom layer of the epidermis. The action as a tyrosine inhibitor results in lighter skin

How long does it take to see results? Although results vary based on the treatment prescribed, schedule and avoidance of unprotected sun exposure, you will typically see results within two to three months.

Will I get that unnatural bleached look?

Absolutely not, results are gradual and natural

What are some of the early results that I can expect?

Within a few weeks, you should notice that your skin is healthier looking. If you are prone to acne or other skin conditions, you should notice cleaner more vibrant skin. The process begins from the inside out. Patients also report an increase in energy and healthier hair

Does it work on the face only or will it also work on the body?

The process goes from head to foot meaning that you will have an even skin tone throughout your body.

Will my skin tone go back to its original colour once I stop using it? The effects can last a long time, as long as you avoid unprotected sun exposure. Maintenance once you have achieved your desired results. To ensure you get the most out of these treatments, try to avoid excessive sun exposure or wear high SPF sunscreen (60 or above) when in the sun.

Are there negative long-term effects? There are no known side effects or interactions with IV administration of glutathione. Tanning Injections and tanning pills have been used extensively to add colour to pale ‘white’ skin

Cost: R10 000 for 10 single dose injections or R20 000 for 10 double dose injections. A minimum of 16 intravenous injections are required. Booster pills, transdermal patches and treatment products as required.
