Vitamin and Gluthatione injections are the beauty trends you should be checking out.
With the increase in pollution and harmful elements in the air, the need to protect the glow of our skin has never been higher. Add to it the stress and anxiety of this fast paced world, our skin ends up looking dull and haggard, its shine dimming each day. While conventional methods such as bleaching creams have been the mainstay for our mother’s generation, it’s vitamin and glutathione injections that break the barrier into the next revolutionary stage of skin care, giving us better, lasting results.
Glutathione is an anti-oxidant, made from proteins (amino acids) cysteine, glutamate and glycine. Glutathione protects the body from free-radical damage, helps detoxify the body, ridding it of heavy metals and chemicals. Apart from removing toxins from the body, glutathione binds with enzymes responsible for producing melanin, thus decreasing its production leading to a drop in pigmentation. In the field of dermatology, glutathione is rapidly becoming the go-to treatment for rejuvenating your skin, giving you a brighter, uniform tone.
In her years of practice as a leading dermatologist based out of Delhi, Dr. Deepali Bhardwaj stresses on communication as the first step in a successful treatment plan. “I consult with my patients at length, understanding what they’re looking for” explains Dr. Bhardwaj. “It is extremely important to note that the skin colour behind your ears is the fairest one can expect from this treatment. The skin of the entire body can be treated, giving you a more confident sense of self.”. But as is with any medical plan, this treatment comes with its own clauses. According to Dr. Bhardwaj, first and foremost, you need to get your blood work done to make sure you’re a viable candidate. Those who have had active pigmentation for more than 10 years may need more injections than those who chose treatment earlier, so they should discuss it with their dermatologist in detail. Regular check ups such as kidney function tests, liver function tests help doctors maintain a good balance of glutathione in your body, to give you optimal results. Over the last 3-4 years, Dr. Bhardwaj has combined these injection treatments with full body chemical peels, micro-dermabrasions, vitamin C facials, sunscreens and nightcreams, medication, etc, designing a unique and exclusive treatment plan that has left thousands of patients satisfied, happy and self assured.
Apart from glutathione injections, vitamin shots are gaining popularity in the field of skin care and rejuvenation. Vitamins revitalize the body, their antioxidant and restoring properties help one achieve a fresh, wholesome look. However, these shots need to be prescribed after proper blood work has been undertaken. Apart from general health of the body, factors such as age of the patient and body requirement play a vital role in mapping the treatment plan.
