Brief Answer:
Glutathione can help for a brief period

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Glutathione cream like any other skin lightening cream works well but the response remains only till the time you use it.
There is no permanent measure to make skin fairer as it is genetically determined.
Use sunscreen on regular basis.
Letme know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

Ok, but I am talking about glutathione injection therapy. Which controls black pigments growth beneath skin ... In an article, it was mentioned that Actress kajol also went through this therapy and we can see the difference in her... It's not over skin makeup. Please guide me, What's this treatment is... Lots of untrusted products are available in the market for this...I need info of the treatment...
