Skin Whitening Injection is a technique where doctors inject glutathione directly into the body. Glutathione is a very powerful antioxidant that helps lighten the skin and make it brighter. It is also said to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, blemishes, and age spots. It can help people with acne and rosacea as well. Glutathione can be used in a variety of ways, including intravenous treatments, topical applications, and oral supplements.
Often called the “mother of all antioxidants,” glutathione is a naturally produced chemical in your liver. It combines three amino acids – cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. It has many functions in the body, including neutralizing free radicals and removing pigmentation by blocking tyrosinase. It also helps fight inflammation and boosts energy. It can be taken orally as Glutathione pills, but for best results, injections are recommended.
In Asia, where it is a popular beauty treatment, women say it gives them more energy and boosts their immune system. They report increased sex drive and brighter, whiter skin (a desirable prospect in a culture that values fairness). Proponents claim it can help patients with cancer, AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, and Parkinson’s disease.
A recent trial of IV glutathione for melanin depletion in the skin did not support its use as an effective or lasting treatment for lightening the skin tone. However, the flaws in the study design and the small sample size mandate cautious analysis.
