Skin Lightening Infusions

Lightening of skin pigmentation can be achieved by using powerful antioxidants that delays melanin production by inhibiting the action of the enzyme tyrosinase which is involved in the maturation of melanocytes (melanin-producing cells). At OBRA, we are results driven and Skin Brightening is one of our bestselling services because we do it RIGHT.

So how does this works?

Glutathione prevents tyrosinase from being transported into cells to a location where it can act as a catalyst during the formation of the pigmentation. Melanocytes are incapable of maturing once tyrosinase is inhibited which results to a decrease in skin pigmentation. This amino acids also removes the free radicals (oxidants) that cause tyrosinase to activate. Melanocytes are broken down to depigment the skin and this causes pheomelanin to be produced instead of eumelanin. The darker brown to black pigment in the skin is caused by eumelanin, while the lighter pigment is caused by pheomelanin. Consequently, the skin's tone lightens when eumelanin is replaced with pheomelanin. Because vitamin C can recycle the amino acid that is being infused, it is co-infused with the IV infusion. In other words, the amino acid stays in your system longer.

Frequently Asked Questions

CAN IT TARGET ONLY A SPECIFIC AREA LIKE DARK CIRCLES?

Glutathione lightens all your skin. It does decrease the severity of your specific area of concern but it will require other modalities such as topical skin lightening products and dermal therapies to address them. As we have dermal nurses, we can help you address some of these pigmentation concerns.

IS THE EFFECT PERMANENT?

Short answer, NO. Your body will need to get these infusions at least every 3-6 months (MAINTENANCE PHASE) to maintain its skin lightening. However the constant exposure to Glutathione converts Eumelanin (present on medium to dark skin) to Pheomelanin (present on those with whiter skin such as caucasians) therefore you will notice that you don’t get tanned easily.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS AND RISKS?

As long as we stick to the recommended doses here in Australia, Glutathione has none to very minimal side effects. Loose stools and Abdominal cramping was documented especially for overseas clients where they give higher doses. Most of the risks lies in the process of IV Cannulation as we are breaking your skin barrier. There is a potential for infection when opportunistic bacteria take advantage of that break in the skin. We prevent this by making sure your skin is very clean. Also, IV cannulation can cause bruising as some veins can be fragile or difficult to spot.

WHAT FACTORS CAN AFFECT THE RESULTS OF MY SKIN BRIGHTENING JOURNEY?

The MAIN factor that can affect your results are your GENETIC MAKEUP, AGE and your SUN HABITS. PLEASE REMEMBER: our ONLY ROLE in this journey is to give you the highest and safest dose allowed. The rest is up to your body on how it will respond.

DOES GLUTATHIONE CAUSE OTHER BENEFITS TO THE BODY?

There are many claims in the internet about other benefits of glutathione such as sleeping or skin conditions, but these still needs more research so we cannot confirm this claims.

HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?

We cannot predict how light or what color range “by X sessions”. Based on our previous clients, everyone is getting VARIED results (as seen in our BEFORE and AFTERS). In doing so, we usually determine our next of session based on the CURRENT Results as we always leave it to our clients to decide when they want to stop.

DO YOU HAVE ANY BEFORE AND AFTERS?

We sure do. Sign up to our mailing list to gain access to our BEFORE AND AFTER SECTION and witness our wonderful collaboration with our clients.
