Which Botulinum toxin based product to choose?

When making a decision to conduct a “beauty procedure”, individual customers want to know which botulinum toxin is most suitable for them and how to make the right choice. Preparations of botulinum toxin type A are used in cosmetology to smooth wrinkles and fight hyperhidrosis. This active component is present in products such as “Botox”, “Dysport” and others. Although they have similar characteristics and mechanism of action, they still have significant differences.

Indications for the use of botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin preparations are recommended for the following facial features:

  • Deep expression lines near the eyes and nasolabial folds;
  • Wrinkles on the chin, neck, or forehead area;
  • Asymmetry of facial features;
  • Excessive sweating;
  • Ptosis – drooping of the upper eyelid.

The effect of botulinum toxin is aimed at relaxing muscle tissues, which allows you to smooth wrinkles. Preparations based on it differ in the time required to achieve a visible effect. Consider the characteristics of several drugs based on botulinum toxin:

Xeomin. This German product can be stored at normal room temperature. It does not contain specific proteins and has a low risk of habituation and sagging of soft tissues. It requires a minimal dose to achieve the desired effect. However, it has an insufficient effect on hyperhidrosis, and its effect is less persistent. The cost of the drug is higher, and its researchability is not at a high level.

Dysport. This drug provides rapid action, noticeable in a few weeks after injection. It is effective against expression lines, and the risk of loss of soft tissue elasticity is minimal. The effect of the drug lasts up to 6 months. The concentration of the active component is low, so more of the remedy is required.

Botox. The effect of this drug begins to manifest itself about 4-5 days after injection. It is effective in the area of the eyebrows, eyes, mouth, palms, armpits, and other areas. However, it can affect the natural facial features.

All preparations have a similar effect, but differ in price, concentration of the active ingredient and duration of the effect. If all precautions are followed, the risk of complications after injections of the botulinum toxins is minimal. The best solution is to consult with a cosmetologist who will be able to advise you which botulinum toxin is best for your situation, thus saving you from unpleasant surprises.

Coretox 100 units are the world’s first botulinum toxin-based product free of animal components in both the toxin culture medium and the final HSA (human serum albumin) product. Coretox is a lyophilized white powder for injection packaged in a clear colorless vial. After dissolution in physiological solution, it turns into a colorless transparent solution.

Unlike other drugs, Coretox was not manufactured using animal components in the culture medium of the toxin. Instead of human serum albumin (HSA), polysorbate 20 and L-methionine listed by the US FDA were used as stabilizer.

The elimination of animal-derived components reduced the risk of possible contamination with bloodborne pathogens or infectious microorganisms, thereby increasing the safety profile of Coretox.
