Yes, IV Glutathione and vitamin C are safe. It is natural and already present in our body. At our treatment doses, no adverse side effects have been seen. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation on the internet suggesting undesirable risks like infections, kidney and thyroid issues which are seen at dangerous doses of these antioxidants or administered by non-licensed individuals. This treatment is safe when it is delivered by a registered nurse or physician. Additionally, While most experts say that controlled amounts of glutathione are not harmful, it is important for you to disclose your medical history before starting the course. Here is a list of those who may not be candidates for intravenous skin whitening treatments:
- History of allergic reactions or sensitivity to glutathione
- Patients that have Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.
- Vitiligo patients
