Infin8® is an effective and advanced way of reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles without the need of invasive techniques like injections or plastic surgery.
It offers a cosmetic solution against dynamic wrinkles based on an (exclusive to Medik8) 20% active ingredient called octapeptide. Octapeptide, which is an elongation of the famous hexapeptide Argireline, stops the neurotransmitter release from reaching the muscle cell and effectively stops the muscle contraction. Rejuvenation of the face (by means of shallowing the depth of specific wrinkles) is an effect of continuous use, as is the smoothing effect on the skin. Infin8 contains the strongest available topical formula to chemically block the connections between nerves and local muscles. Clinically proven to be 30% stronger than the corresponding Argireline formulation, there is no more powerful topical muscle relaxant treatment.
Infin8 serum may be used as a supplement to professional Botulinum Toxin A treatment, but can also be a standalone treatment for an independent home use, bringing anticipated effects without the need for the invasive muscle paralysis treatment.
Pretox® contains an inoffensive octapeptide composed of natural amino acids.
It is a safer, cheaper and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin treatment, targeting the same wrinkle forming mechanism in a very different way.
Stimulates the skin fibroblasts in order to reconstitute the extracellular matrix.
Leads to the synthesis of collagen I and IV, fibronectine and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs).
Stimulates wound healing and gene expression, without the pro-inflammatory reactions of other treatments.
Contains 20% Acetyl Octapeptide

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.
