IV Infusion Therapy
Glutathione IV Infusion
How does Infusion Therapy for Skin Brightening work? Glutathione works with your body to promote lighter skin by inhibiting the production of melanin. The lightening process starts from the inside out and creates an overall body skin lightening effect. The skin lightening effects are permanent and over exposure to sunlight must be avoided (good sun protection is always advised). Glutathione inhibits melanin synthesis by means of stopping L-DOPA’s ability to interact with tyrosinase in the process of melanin production. Want to lighten your skin tone? You can with the Glutathione Skin Lightening/Whitening Treatment! Our Intravenous Glutathione Skin Whitening Treatment can lighten your skin evenly. Glutathione is administered via IV and is able to deposit evenly throughout the body. Glutathione will swop up the oxidative damaged cells (which cause skin to darken) and lighten your skin naturally, safely, evenly and in a healthy manner. Benefits Include: Whiter Skin >Removes skin blemishes (Scars, pigmentation, uneven skin tones) Produce collagen to enhance elasticity Suppress formation of acne/blemish/pimple Enhance immunity, reduce tiredness > Improve quality & texture Improve radiance, glowing, supple and moisturized skin Reduce fine lines and wrinkles How is our skin colour determined? The amount of melanin determines the colour of the skin. Melanin is a type of skin pigment that is produced by the melanocytes. Individuals with dark complexion have more melanin. The melanin content in your skin is decided by your genetic makeup. Certain factors such as hormones, skin damage, exposure to sunlight, exposure to some chemicals may also affect the production of melanin. The skin colour can change. For example, when direct exposure to sunlight is reduced, sun tans fade. However, over a period of time, some discolorations such as “liver” spots or “age” spots become more or less permanent. What is Glutathione? Glutathione: “Mother of all anti-oxidants” A revolutionary anti-aging treatment that targets deep lines, wrinkles and sagging skin in one shot! Glutathione is an antioxidant made from glycine, glutamic acid and cysteine. While Glutathione is prepared like any cosmetic or vitamin product – in a safe, sterile laboratory setting – it is made of all-natural amino acids that occur in nature and are beneficial to our bodies. In fact, Glutathione can be found in many healthy foods that people eat on a regular basis, some of which are actually considered among the healthiest foods in the world. Walnuts, avocados, tomatoes and oranges can all help to keep Glutathione levels high in the bloodstream, though they won’t actually work to whiten your skin and, contribute to healthy skin – especially walnuts and avocados, which are also high in essential fatty acids. How does Glutathione work? Glutathione works in a very simple way, yet other skin whitening products can’t compete with the all-natural amino acid compound. Simply put, Glutathione works to clear the body of free radicals and toxins that can lead to serious skin problems like hyperpigmentation and melasma, as well as more common ones like sun spots acne scars and dark underarms and body darkening.

IV Drip Glutathione Benefits
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a peptide that is naturally produced and found in every cell of the human body, including immune cells. Made up of three essential amino acids (cysteine, glutamate, and glycine), it is often referred to as the master detoxifier for its incredible ability to promote skin health, body function, overall mood and well-being. While it is found naturally within the body, at Remedy Pain Solutions we offer IV infusion therapies to increase glutathione levels and promote our patients’ overall health.
What it Glutathione used for?
Glutathione is an extremely powerful antioxidant that is key to almost all body functions, including:
- Improving immune function and helping to fight disease
- Lightening and brightening skin by erasing hyper-pigmentation and inhibiting melanin production in cells
- Reducing inflammation
- Helping your body break down and purge fat
- Keeping your body from becoming resistant to drugs
- Promoting high energy and mental clarity
- Providing anti-aging properties
- Improving quality of sleep and combating stress from sleep apnea
- Detoxifying and fighting oxidative stress
What are the symptoms of Glutathione deficiency?
Patients with low glutathione levels may experience:
- Chronic fatigue
- Problems sleeping
- Frequent illnesses
- Difficulty concentrating
- Painful joints
- Mood instability or depression
- There are also many chronic health conditions which are associated with low glutathione levels. Autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, heart disease, skin disorders, and many other conditions are associated with low levels of glutathione, and many prescription medications to treat these conditions can further deplete these levels.
Are there ways to boost my Glutathione levels?
There are supplements known to boost your body’s own production of glutathione, including:
- Vitamin C (taking Vitamin C with Glutathione can increase absorption)
- Vitamin E
- An organic diet with an abundance of fresh produce can help your body boost the production of glutathione, but because it is not easily absorbed from food sources an IV glutathione infusion at Remedy Pain Solutions is the most effective way to ensure you are maximizing your levels of the antioxidant.
Is Glutathione IV infusion therapy better than oral supplements?
An IV infusion of glutathione delivers the powerful antioxidant directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract where adequate absorption is not a guarantee. Each patient has unique body chemistry, age, and health which will affect the rate at which nutrients are absorbed into their system. Once in the bloodstream, glutathione is carried throughout the entire body, including the brain, heart, lungs, and muscle tissue, so your cells can benefit from glutathione’s detoxifying and protective properties. Simply schedule a consultation with one of our providers at Remedy Pain Solutions if you are interested in IV infusion therapy of glutathione or several other vitamins and nutrients.
Are there any side effects of Glutathione treatment?
- Several studies have linked long-term use of glutathione supplements to low zinc levels, and patients consuming the nutrient orally have reported digestive distress including abdominal cramps and bloating.
- Intravenous (IV) glutathione infusion bypasses the digestive tract altogether, delivering the master antioxidant directly to your cells. The vast majority of patients receiving IV glutathione treatment have no side effects at all. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is best to check with your doctor at Remedy Pain Solutions prior to infusion.
How Long will the Results Last?
To maintain the lighter skin tone treatment must continue, so patients should expect to come in for regular visits to Dr. Nirvana. Frequency will depend on your ability to maintain antioxidant levels. Generally to maintain results patients need treatment once a month.
The following factors will impede your results as they will increase oxidative stress:
- Poor Diet
- Environmental Toxins
- Poor Sleep
How do I Prepare for my IV Sessions?
As this is a medical procedure, make sure you are well hydrated and have consumed a full meal including 20 grams of protein before starting treatment.
How Many IV Sessions are Required to Achieve Desired Results?
Glutathione when given intravenously causes whitening of the skin all over, reduction in acne, age spots and other skin blemishes — resulting in flawless, radiant and youthful looking skin. Truly a no downtime procedure, injectable glutathione only takes 30 minutes or less to perform and you can go back to your usual activities after the session. The effects of injectable glutathione work faster when compared to the oral treatments.
The procedure is relatively simple and involves injection of pure injectable glutathione directly into your system via the intravenous route. Each session takes about 30 minutes and there is no downtime, so patients can continue with their regular daily routines.
The amount of IV sessions of glutathione depends on how many shades lighter you want your skin tone to be. One round of treatment is 10 IV’s that will be performed twice a week for 5 weeks. Typically one round of treatment (10 IV’s) can lighten the skin from 1 to 3 shades lighter. Depending on how light you would like your skin, you would need to commit to more rounds of treatment.
An intravenous vitamin infusion which enhances immune system, reduces fatigue, helps with seasonal allergies, reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia and asthma.
The Myers’ Cocktail is named after the late John Myers, M.D., a Maryland physician who used intravenous injections of nutrients to treat many chronic conditions.
The Myers’ Cocktail works by increasing the blood concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals beyond that which can be achieved when supplementing orally. For example, Vitamin C given intravenously has been found to reach blood concentrations more than 50 times greater than what can be achieved when given orally.
The idea is that many illnesses and conditions are associated with digestive disturbances such as bloating, indigestion and food sensitivities and that people with such conditions may not absorb many of the nutrients needed to return them to good health. Also, many diseases and inflammation cause the body to use nutrients at a faster rate, or to require higher amounts for proper healing. When nutrients are given intravenously, the digestion is bypassed. ADDITIONALLY the levels in the bloodstream are temporarily increased so that the nutrients are “coaxed” into the cells, and frequently into the mitochondria where they are active. This temporary boost frequently “kick-starts” the cells, so that energy is produced more efficiently in them.
Some patients feel an energy boost lasting days or weeks. In the case of fibromyalgia, decreased pain can be observed. In other chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis, because the “leaky” nature of the gut, the infusion helps get necessary nutrients into the cells. Chronic asthma and other lung disease, congestive heart failure, and chronic allergic problems may respond with more energy and less symptoms.
Patients who get sick often with infections may find an improved immune response, with less susceptibility to viral illnesses.
A small catheter is inserted into a vein, and the infusion is given very slowly over 20-30 minutes. Side effects are remarkably rare and almost always are limited to local irritation of the vein. The most common sensations are heat and flushing (a magnesium effect), and the taste of vitamins soon after the infusion begins. The cocktail is usually given 1-2 times per week, and beneficial effects are usually felt by the fourth visit. Many patients with chronic conditions choose to continue the infusions every 1-4 weeks or when they feel their energy slipping.
At Revitalab, the Myers’ Cocktail has been reinvented as the Energy IV, blending a combination of B Vitamins, Vitamin C and essential minerals for the perfect boost when feeling fatigued, run down or under stress. The Energy IV is great for optimal health maintenance.
