Glutathione IV: Everything You Need To Know

As you age, your skin can start to look dull and tired. Many things cause dull skin, the main offenders being ageing, environmental exposure and lifestyle factors. 

There are a lot of treatments and serums that promise to brighten your skin, things such as facials that are designed specifically to boost your skin tone and ‘glow’. But have you heard of a Glutathione IV?

This skin treatment is different. It’s designed to brighten your skin, but with repeated use, it can provide effective long-term brighter, lighter, and more even skin. At our clinic in Dartford, Glutathione IV is a very popular and effective skin-brightening treatment. 

The procedure is quick and easy, involving an IV being placed in the hand. The IV delivers high-powered naturally occurring ingredients such as vitamin C and glucose directly into your bloodstream to boost your skin’s appearance from the inside out. 

Glutathione IV: What Is It?

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is already found in every cell in your body; it is made of 3 types of molecules known as amino acids. 

Your body produces glutathione to help combat free radicals and keep your cells healthy. Free radicals are unstable atoms that damage your cells through illness and ageing.

Because your natural production of glutathione slows as you age, this can result in age spots and pigmentation changes. These common signs of ageing are often exacerbated by busy lifestyles and stress.

A Glutathione IV drip contains antioxidants that will boost the natural antioxidants that you need to replace damaged cells. This can have a significant, positive impact on how your skin looks, and the use of an IV means that the delivery into your system is direct.

Glutathione IV - Everything You Need To Know

What Can Glutathione IV Help With?

This treatment can help with: 

  • Skin Brightening
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Discolouration caused by acne

This treatment is non-invasive and offers fast, effective detoxification because it is administered directly into your body through an IV. Its primary benefit is to brighten your skin and provide a healthy glow, but it will lighten your whole skin, not just your pigmented areas. You can discuss in detail the effects of skin brightening with one of our IV experts based in Dartford. Our experts will tailor your sessions according to what is right for you.

Glutathione IVs can also help with glutathione deficiency. Some of these symptoms can include anemia, a build-up of too much acid in the body and frequent infections.  

How Long Does It Take Glutathione IV To Work?

On the day of your appointment at our Dartford clinic, you will meet with our highly trained IV specialist doctors. The actual treatment lasts 30 – 60 minutes, and it starts working right away. 

Most people find that it takes up to three weeks to see the final results, and your final results will depend on how consistently you follow up with your treatments, your overall health and your metabolism. 

Poor diet is often one of the key factors that inhibits the results of this treatment. For the best result, you should combine this treatment with a healthy diet.

What Are The Benefits Of Glutathione IV?

Glutathione IV helps to brighten your skin and is a fantastic anti-ageing agent that helps to keep your skin smooth and younger by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves energy and mental clarity.

Alongside these things, you could also benefit from the following:

  • Enhanced immune function
  • Effective pain relief – thanks to reduced inflammation
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved concentration and focus
  • Better sleep
  • Detoxification of harmful substances from the body
  • Reduction in body fat

Because glutathione can be naturally made by our cells, Glutathione IV is a very natural treatment.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results are not permanent, and if you wish to maintain your brighter and lighter-looking skin, you’ll have to repeat the treatment. 

For the best results, you should avoid smoking and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol. Improving your diet, and getting enough sleep will also help the results last for longer. 

One really important factor is sun exposure. Too much sun will lessen the effectiveness, so staying out of direct sunlight and applying high-factor sunscreen should help avoid this.  

The best way to maintain your brighter skin is to create a bespoke treatment plan, and at Elite Aesthetics in Dartford, we can tailor your sessions accordingly so that you achieve the desired results.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
