Patients often come to Rejuvé asking what they can do to get clearer, more even skin. Wellness is another major concern, whether it's stress, energy levels, or metabolism. What if we told you that there's a molecule that already exists in your body that can help with both of these concerns -- and much, much more? 

Glutathione (GSH) is the most important antioxidant that you've never heard of. Though there's an enormous medical literature about it, it's not something that gets much attention. It plays a key role in helping your body recover from illness and prevent disease, and is critical to detoxification. 


At Rejuvé, we've begun offering glutathione injections for two different purposes. This potent antioxidant can be used for skin lightening, but it is also a powerful tool for improving your overall wellness. Read on to learn more about what glutathione is and what it can do for you. We've also highlighted two other products -- PureCleanse Liver and our very own bleaching product -- to offer you more options for detoxifying and getting clear skin.

To your health!

Glutathione (GSH) is a vital antioxidant that helps your body fight free radicals, aiding your ability to recover from illness and injury, controlling inflammation, keeping your energy levels up, and much more. Here's the bad news: Even though your body produces its own GSH, as you age, levels decrease. A poor diet, stress, pollution, medications, and many other common problems all deplete GSH levels. At Rejuvé, we're always focused on your health inside and out, and we're using this important molecule in ways that address both areas of wellness.

Glutiathone is important for neutralizing free radicals and reactive oxygen compounds. It is used in virtually every part of the body, aiding in metabolic and biochemical reactions including DNA synthesis and repair, protein synthesis, amino acid transport, and enzyme activation. If your levels of GSH are low -- and it's estimated that as much as half of the adult population has a limited ability to get rid of toxins -- it can lead to numerous health issues. In particular, an overload of toxins can place a heavy burden on your liver. Injections of GSH can help replenish your body's levels, decreasing the load on your liver and helping you detoxify.

IV Glutiathone can also be used to lighten the skin, reducing hyperpigmentation, melasma, and uneven skin tone. It might seem strange that GSH can do two things that seem so different, but it's actually a similar function. GSH detoxifies your body by virtue of being "sticky" -- heavy metals and free radicals stick to it, allowing the body to then naturally flush them out. GSH's "stickiness" is also key to its skin lightening proerties. It inhibits melanin synthesis like someone cutting in on a pair of dance partners -- instead of L-DOPA binding with tyrosinase, GSH "cuts in" and keeps the two from pairing up. This melanin inhibition leads to lighter, more even skin.

Feature2Help Your Liver Do Its Job

Our bodies evolved to help us stay healthy and survive the stresses of our environment, but with the levels of pollution and toxins we now face in everyday life, it's difficult for our bodies to keep up. Toxins can accumulate in the cells and if they aren't removed, they simply build up, leading to many diseases and health problems. 


If you're ready for a detox or if your liver needs some hep, Dr. Tang recommends PureCleanse Liver. This supplement can be used as part of a detoxification protocol, or it can be used on a daily basis to support the liver and help maximize its efficiency. The liver is not only an integral part of the detoxification system, it also aids in fat metabolism, helps regulate glucose, produces bile for digestion, and clears out medications that you've taken.  


PureCleanse Liver not only aids the liver in detoxifying your body, it also works to remove toxins from other places they're stored, including fatty tissue and other organs. In addition, it protects the liver from the harmful damage of toxins while enhancing liver function. PureCleanse Liver contains a potent mix of ingredients that are designed to eliminate toxic chemicals from your body, including alpha-lipoic acid, N-acetyl cysteine, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), and calcium d-glucarate.

Skin Bleaching


If you want lighter, more even skin, it can be hard to know where to look -- how can you find a product that is safe and will actually get you results? At Rejuvé, we have actually turned to compounding our own skin bleaching product to provide our patients with an effective solution.


Our bleaching product is compounded specifically for our patients, and made to be 2.5 times stronger than the typical prescription-strength hydroquinone -- we offer 10% hydroquinone, while most products provide just 4% of the active ingredient. It is combined with Kojic acid, Vitamin C, and Retin A to help magnify its potency. This formulation allows us to offer our patients a powerful tool for fighting melasma, hyperpigmentation, and sun spots. Even better, it can be used daily and combined with other skin products, as well as IV glutathione.
