If you stop injecting glutathione then your skin will start fading in color and be tan or darkened and not as white as before.
In order to keep your skin white you must continue taking the and injecting the glutathione when needed as the results of a glutathione injection are not permanent.
Glutathione injection results are not permanent as the skin constantly changes with age so the results of glutathione levels fade overtime as well as the effects on skin lightening.
So you will need to get more glutathione injections to keep your skin lightened and maintain the results from the glutathione injections.
