Gone are the days when glowing skin was our only priority. Today we all want smooth and healthy skin as it gives us self-assurance and motivates us to meet the outside world with confidence.
Our skin has abilities to repair itself, but as time passes, the skin’s ability to heal on its own gradually reduces. The skin shows signs of aging, and we start to develop wrinkles and sagginess. Sometimes, the skin also gets pigmented. Unfortunately, all these skin conditions can occur prematurely due to various internal and external factors.
One solution to these problems is the Glutathione Injection. This is a cosmetic procedure that helps our skin get rid of excess pigmentation (skin whitening), remove fine lines, wrinkles, etc. Glutathione injection is replete with antioxidants that help in removing toxins and free radicals from the skin.
What is Glutathione Injection?
Since Glutathione is produced inside our body naturally to meet various purposes, an additional dosage of it can have a significant positive impact on our body. Apart from improving overall skin health, Glutathione can help in the treatment of –
- Liver damage
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Metal and drug poisoning
- Parkinson’s disease
- Memory loss
- Heart disease
- Cystic fibrosis
- Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
Who needs Glutathione Injection?
Any person, irrespective of gender and skin tone, can opt for this treatment. Microdermabrasion can be used to treat skin conditions like –
- Dull Skin
- Shallow Skin
- Acne discoloration
- Superficial acne scars
- Mild acne
- Pick marks
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Uneven skin texture
- Dark spots
This procedure can also be used to enhance the results of skin-bleaching or anti-aging products. Once the procedure is done, these products can easily penetrate the skin.
Are Glutathione Injections Painful?
The Glutathione injection is directly injected into the muscles (like the vaccine shot); this way, it can easily bypass the digestive system and ensure that you get the benefits at a much faster pace and in higher concentrations. The process is not painful, but as always, it depends on the pain resistance level of the person. You might feel slight discomfort and a little pain, which would go away in a few minutes. You might need to get multiple doses split into one to two times a week. After three-four weeks, we will reduce the dosage to once a week. You can see the results in six to eight weeks.
What to expect after glutathione injections?
There can be bruising in the injected part – this is quite common, and there is nothing to worry about. You can treat the area with a cold pack or ice wrapped in a piece of cloth for 10 to 20 minutes after the treatment to reduce the bruising and swelling.
There is no downtime or recovery time with Glutathione injection; you can easily get back to your daily routine immediately after the treatment. Also, there is no specific medication that you should take after the treatment.
Some people have reported experiencing slight pain or headache after the treatment. If you do experience the same, then you can take any OTC pain relievers to alleviate the pain. However, it is wise to consult with us before you take any medication.
