With time, your skin becomes dull and dark due to various factors like ageing, stress, pollution, etc. This makes you lose your natural radiance and glow. The best way to restore your lost radiance is with a skin whitening injection.
Glutathione is the mother of all antioxidants produced in the liver from three amino acids – cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. It detoxifies and whitens the skin by lowering melanin levels, which is why it’s popular in Asia, where women claim to have more energy, boosted immune systems and even a better sex drive thanks to its skin-lightening powers. It deactivates the enzyme tyrosinase that promotes melanin production, and it’s also used to reduce the appearance of dark circles and pigmentation as well as help with acne and melasma.
The results are long-lasting but you will need to get booster shots in between to maintain the whitening effects. There are also oral supplements that contain glutathione but they don’t work as well as the injections.
You will find a lot of skin whitening products advertised online and in beauty salons that claim to whiten the skin, correct uneven skin tone and reduce dark spots. Some of these products are actually banned by the Ministry of Health because they can cause toxicity, allergic reactions and damage to your liver. Others are expensive, painful or do not work at all. However, at Dr Medispa, we offer a safe and highly effective skin lightening treatment called glutathione injection.
