WHAT ARE IMPURITIES* AND HOW THEY CAN AFFECT YOU
Varying degrees of impurities* are found in most Botulinum Toxin A formulations due to differences in manufacturing and purification processes. These impurities* consist of complexing proteins, inactive neurotoxin, flagellin and bacterial DNA.
Impurities* in Botulinum Toxins increase the risk of activating the immune system, leading to the formation of neutralising antibodies (NABs) that diminish treatment efficacy over time or even cause complete non-response.
It is important to choose a Pure Toxin with Zero Impurities* right from the start to ensure optimal results with every Botulinum Toxin treatment.
Introducing The PURE Toxin with Zero IMPURITIES*
ZERO IMPURITIES* = LOWER RISK OF NEUTRALISING ANTIBODY FORMATION
Not all Botulinum Toxin products contain the same level of purity. Purity level may play an important role in determining the long term efficacy of a product.
A Botulinum Toxin product with a higher level of purity contains less/ zero impurities* – your body may be less likely to develop resistance as you receive treatments regularly. Research has found that impurities*, such as complexing proteins, are one of the reasons for development of neutralising antibody that contribute to Botulinum Toxin resistance.
Botulinum Toxin and its impurities* can be recognised as foreign by the body’s immune system. The effect may not be immediate; over time, antibodies may be produced to bind to the toxin and prevent it from working effectively.
This is not always the case. When it comes to receiving treatment for Botulinum Toxin, it is very important that you consult certified doctors who are the best person to advise you on the proper dosage and frequency of the treatment.
Impurities* such as complexing proteins do not play an active role in treatment. Moreover, they have been linked to the formation of neutralising antibodies and subsequent Botulinum Toxin resistance.
