Skin Whitening Treatment Before and After

Skin Whitening San Francisco and Skin Whitening San Mateo Procedure

At MD Laser and Cosmetics Center, the skin whitening treatment takes 30  minutes.   It is an anesthesia-free skin injection administered on the layers of the skin.


The doctor first inspects and disinfects the area of your hand suitable for the procedure. After injecting the skin whitening/glutathione solution into your body, the doctor removes the IV setup and seals that area with a small piece of cotton or band-aid.


As the whole procedure is carried out by an experienced and efficient doctor, there is no need to store any doubts in your mind.

Side-Effects of Skin Whitening Injections

Glutathione, being the primary ingredient of skin whitening injections, is a natural antioxidant already present in human bodies. We offer Glutathione doses in a controlled amount because of which these injections do not show any side effects.


Unfortunately, you may come across some misinformation about these injections on the internet. Some side-effects occur when an uncontrolled amount of Glutathione is administered by an inexperienced/unregistered doctor or nurse. So, it’s better to get the skin whitening treatment from a registered medical practitioner.


However, we suggest the following types of people to stay away from skin whitening treatment:


  • Vitiligo Patients
  • Pregnant and Lactating Women
  • People having Steve-Johnson Syndrome
  • Sensitivity or allergic to Glutathione

In addition to these, people taking medicines for serious illnesses should consult their doctor before undergoing a skin whitening treatment.

Frequently Asked Question

You may have wondered about skin whitening. If it's what you need or how it works.

Yes, this statement is true. However, with any procedure, there is a risk for allergic response.  Making the primary component of these injections, Glutathione into an oral agent makes them safe. It provides many other benefits, such as:

  • Detoxifying our bodies
  • Improving the functioning of the body detoxification via kidneys and liver
  • Helping to form a healthy and robust immune system
  • Supporting the central nervous system from the toxic or heavy metal build-up

The results of skin whitening are not permanent as our body normally will produce pigmenation. If you want to retain a bright, healthy, and fair skin tone forever, undergo maintenance treatments from time to time.

It may vary depending upon the type of complexion you want. However, the average time you might start seeing results is 4-6 weeks.  For best results, make sure you also undergo 1-2 maintenance treatments every year.
