All Pretox Products
Medik8 Pretox products are an injection free alternative to Botox, Dermal Fillers and Collagen.
Peptides are protein fragments made up of amino acids which can signal for the production of structural proteins by cells. Peptides perform a variety of functions. They function as messengers in the skin, allowing the epidermis and dermis to communicate for efficiently. This may sound insignificant, but research is showing that in high doses their effect is quiet measurable. As we age, communication diminishes with in the skin, resulting in decreased collagen production and an accumulation of degraded elastin fibres.
Medik8 offer a range of products containing high dose peptides under the Pretox name. An advantage of peptide formulae is even at high dosage, the degree of irritation is low, making them perfect products for people with skin too sensitive for retinol.
With 5 different Pretox products there is something for everyone's needs. The Hero product of the range is the Pretox® 20. Muscles contract when they receive a neurotransmitter release from a nerve. Like Botox, Pretox releases the amount of nerve stimulation on the local muscle tissue being targeted but unlike Botox, Pretox does not paralyse the muscle completely.
The Medik8 Pretrox Filler is an injection free alternative to Dermal Filler treatment to plump out cheeks and lips. Wrinkles and lines are literally folds in the skin where there is a lack of supporting scaffoldunderneath the surface. Dermal fillers and Pretox Filler attempt to plug the holes under the folds with Hyaluronic Acid, the normally present material beneath the skin which has seemingly in that location become more absent.
