Glutathione Q & A

What is glutathione?

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant found in every cell of your body. It's made of three kinds of amino acids and carries out many vital functions, including:

  • Producing DNA, the building blocks of proteins and cells
  • Supporting your immune system
  • Carrying mercury out of your brain
  • Regenerating vitamins E and C 
  • Forming sperm cells
  • Breaking down free radicals
  • Helping certain enzymes function

Glutathione also helps your liver and gallbladder to manage fat in your body.

What are the health benefits of glutathione?

Glutathione helps to rid your body of free radicals and toxins. It may prevent damage by oxidants that may be linked to:

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Skin disorders
  • Liver disease
  • Cardiovascular disease

Glutathione may also boost your immune system and improve your memory and mental sharpness. 

What are the benefits of a skin-lightening IV infusion with glutathione?

When administered via an IV at The Retreat Medical Spa: Henry Kaw, MD, glutathione may turn back the signs of aging and daily exposure to the elements and stress that make your complexion appear dull and tired.

Glutathione may make your skin appear:

  • Lighter
  • Glowing, supple, and moisturized
  • Clearer, with fewer blemishes, acne, or scars
  • Smoother, with less discoloration, pigmentation, and uneven areas
  • More refined, with a softer texture and smaller pores

The treatment may also smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How does glutathione IV therapy work?

You're made comfortable at The Retreat Medical Spa: Henry Kaw, MD, and hooked up to an IV of glutathione. Your IV contains a few grams of glutathione. The IV transports the antioxidant straight to your bloodstream where it can take effect more quickly. 

Dr. Kaw tailors the exact dosage of glutathione to your specific needs and health. Afterward, he recommends you return for regular maintenance treatments to keep your new, brighter skin tone.

How often do I need glutathione IV therapy for skin lightening?

The frequency depends on how well your body maintains antioxidant levels. Every person is unique. In general, Dr. Kaw recommends weekly IV treatment to continue to enjoy your results.
