The most active component in the formulation is the Glutathione which gets to break the process of pigment formation. What is significant is that the color part of the pigments is broken down which in turn would mean a new layer of color pigments which are more or less of a lighter shade. The most attractive aspect of the treatment is that the effect is rather long lasting and close to a permanent solution to dark colored skin as practically possible.
Since the Glutathione is delivered as close to the site as possible, the action sets in immediately as compared to the much slower results with the more common creams and lotions. Equally significant is that there are few adverse reactions being reported with this treatment form which would mean that it is safe to use in most situations.
The actual strength of the preparation and duration of the treatment can be varied to suit the situation. Rather than just a simple skin whitening procedure, the Glutathione formulation is more of a general agent to improve the youthfulness and appearances of the skin. It is possible to remove the scar tissue from acne and skin defects like warts and moles by using the Glutathione injections.
