Can Glutathione IV Help Brighten Your Skin?
Glutathione IV treatments make it easier than ever to get beautiful skin, with a series of simple sessions revitalizing your skin tone, enhancing your complexion, and creating a healthier glow.
But how do glutathione treatments work, and what changes can you expect to see?
How does our Glutathione IV treatment work?
Our glutathione IV treatment has been put together by our experts to brighten and lighten your skin through a straightforward intravenous injection. Glutathione is an antioxidant that occurs naturally in the human body, working to inhibit melanin production.
What is melanin? It’s a substance responsible for skin pigmentation, produced by melanocytes. We all have an equal number of melanocytes in our bodies, but some of us tend to produce more of it than others, contributing to the appearance of your skin and hair.
So, reducing the amount of pigmentation your system creates can have a dramatic impact on the tone of your skin. You may be able to stop using foundation and other cosmetic products to create an artificial harmony in your skin tone, cutting valuable time off your makeup routine first thing in the morning.
But your skin tone may be the result of genetics and environmental factors (depending on your lifestyle). If you spend too long in the sun, for example, you may experience hyperpigmentation: the formation of unwanted patches of brown skin or freckles on the face or other areas of the body.
While hyperpigmentation can be caused by too much sun exposure, it may be the result of other factors, such as hormonal changes, skin injuries, inflammation, or age.
This can be a difficult condition to live with, particularly in extreme cases. That’s just another reason why it’s so important to care for your skin and take precautions in bright weather (even if you only get outside for less than two hours a week, as 60 percent of Canadians do).
The glutathione IV treatment feeds this substance directly into the body to inhibit melanin production, leading to noticeable results after multiple sessions. But the number of treatments required varies depending on your skin tone, your complexion, your melanin production, and the goals you want to achieve.

What results does Astra Medi Spa’s Glutathione IV treatment offer?
Astra Medi Spa’s glutathione IV treatment is designed to leave your skin brighter and lighter. This can give you a real boost if you’re unhappy with your skin tone or other aspects of your appearance.
Our research shows that Glutathione IV treatments can:
Create a more even skin tone
If your skin tone is unbalanced (or at least seems that way to you), intravenous injections of glutathione could help to cultivate a more even complexion. As this involves introducing greater quantities of an organic substance into the body, the results will be natural and safe.
There’s no need to undergo any form of invasive surgery, and there’s definitely no downtime. You can have the treatment at any time and carry on with your day.
Reduce hyperpigmentation visibility
If you’re affected by hyperpigmentation, you may feel frustrated by the lack of balance in your skin tone, but glutathione can help to combat its effects.
Injecting glutathione into your bloodstream can inhibit melanin production and reduce the visibility of hyperpigmentation, cultivating a more even skin tone.
Enhance appearance of blemishes and freckles
If you’re naturally prone to freckles or skin blemishes, our glutathione IV treatment has the power to reduce their visibility.
Your skin may become clearer, brighter, and lighter, with a healthier appearance.
Decrease visibility of liver spots
Liver spots (AKA age spots) are caused by overactive pigment cells, as UV light increases the speed of melanin production.
People (particularly those with light skin) who spend a lot of time in the sun are more likely to develop liver spots over time, as their bodies start to produce melanin in higher concentrations, or it clumps together.
As glutathione inhibits melanin production, liver spots can become less visible with multiple treatments.
Why is the glutathione IV treatment so effective?
Our glutathione IV treatment is such an effective solution because it delivers a potent cocktail of glutathione and essential vitamins into your system, administered by a trained professional who knows exactly how to maximize your safety from the start of the session to the end.
Yes, you might be able to take supplements that contain vitamins and glutathione, but they’re not as effective. Why?
Because they have to be consumed orally and pass through the digestive process. They’ll be broken down on their journey, and their power will be compromised by your stomach acids. This means you might not receive the results you expect to see based on the supplements’ claims.
However, our treatment goes directly into your bloodstream and bypasses the difficulties associated with the digestive process — boosting its efficacy and bringing stronger results.
How many Glutathione IV treatment sessions do you need?
The number of treatments you need depends on the level of skin lightening you have in mind, your current complexion, and how quickly you want to start seeing results. For example, if you plan to go on vacation in six months or have a special occasion coming up, your skin lightening might seem a little more urgent.
In general, though, our experts recommend one session per week. This can help to generate noticeable results within a few months. For example, if your skin tone falls into the Fitzpatrick 4 area, you may notice a change in your skin tone within one to three months.
It may be a little longer for people in the Fitzpatrick skin tone 5 area, though, usually taking between four and six months.
