|Medik8 Pretox® 20 ( Injection-Free Alternative) |
Injection-Free alternative to Botulinum Toxin treatment in a liposome delivery system, combining the highest quality muscle relaxant peptides to reverse the existing signs of ageing. An addition of Hyaluronic Acid stimulates cell proliferation and migration, enhances skin elasticity and collagen production, while urea increases dermal hydration. Designed for both men and women between their mid-20s to 40s.
Muscles contract when they receive a neurotransmitter release from a nerve. Like Botulinum Toxin A, Pretox® 20 releases the amount of nerve stimulation on the local muscle tissue being targeted but unlike Botulinum Toxin A, Pretox® does not paralyze the muscle completely. Instead it gently and temporarily reduces the strength of specific muscle contractions, thus the formation of new lines and wrinkles is reduced and old lines appear much less prominent - leaving you with smoother, younger looking skin.
Pretox® 20 contains an inoffensive hexapeptide composed of natural amino acids to reduce the depth of the wrinkles in the face caused by the contraction of the muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes. Hexapeptide prevents the ageing of skin induced by repeated facial movements caused by excessive catecholamine (neurotransmitter) release. Clinical tests have shown that Pretox® 20 inhibits the snare complex (muscle contraction mechanism) to a greater extent than other relative peptides. In fact, Pretox® 20 is up to 70% more effective at reducing muscle stimulation than leading competitors. Pretox® 20 is a safe and relatively inexpensive alternative to harsh, muscle paralysis treatment and can also be used to prolong the effects of Botulinum Toxin treatments.

Injection Free is a specialist treatment cosmeceutical range based on the critical discoveries in the global beauty industry and Medik8s own research. The gel formula reduces the appearance of all types of wrinkles: dynamic, static and wrinkle folds.
Dynamic wrinkles are formed as a result of facial muscles contractions. Thus the most common locations of dynamic wrinkles are on the forehead, on the outer corners of the eyes (the so called crows feet) and between the eyebrows. When muscles contract, they cause the overlaying skin to crumple and form lines. Probably the most effective and popular treatment against dynamic wrinkles is Botulinum Toxin A, also known as BOTOX. The treatment works by paralysing the muscles of facial expression, thus preventing their contraction and new lines from forming. Pretox Infin8 is a second-generation injection-free solution to anyone over their 40s onwards, who would like to obtain similar results to Botulinum Toxin A treatment, without drastic measures. Pretox Infin8 effectively rejuvenates the skin by working on all three layers of skin and on the muscular filaments, responsible for the facial expression.
