Innotox, a popular botulinum toxin product, has gained significant attention in the field of aesthetic medicine due to its unique liquid formulation, which offers ease of use and consistent results. Injecting Innotox requires precision and expertise to achieve the desired aesthetic outcomes while ensuring patient safety. To assist practitioners, Dermax has compiled a comprehensive usage guide on how to inject Innotox and the necessary precautions for its use.

How To Inject Innotox?

Introduction of Innotox

Innotox contains botulinum toxin type A, a powerful neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes the facial muscles responsible for the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Unlike traditional powdered forms of botulinum toxin that require careful dilution, Innotoxcomes pre-mixed in a stable liquid form, reducing the risk of dilution errors and making it easier for practitioners to administer.

One of the key advantages of Innotox is its stability and ease of use. The liquid formulation is less sensitive to temperature fluctuations compared to powdered forms, which means it can be stored and transported more conveniently. This feature not only enhances the product's shelf life but also provides peace of mind to practitioners who can rely on its consistent potency and effectiveness.

Innotox is available in two specifications: Innotox 100u and Innotox 50uThis allows practitioners to choose the appropriate dosage based on the specific needs of their patients, offering flexibility in treatment planning. Generally, the higher volume (100u) provides a more cost-effective option, reducing the cost per unit and enhancing the overall value of the treatment.

How To Inject Innotox?

Pre-Injection Preparation

Before injecting Innotox, it's essential to thoroughly consult with the patient to understand their aesthetic goals and medical history. Assess the treatment areas for any contraindications and obtain informed consent. Prepare the injection site by cleansing it with an antiseptic solution and marking the target areas for precise injections.

Injection Technique

1. Choosing the Right Needle and Syringe

Select an appropriate needle and syringe for the injection. A 30-gauge needle is commonly used for its fine gauge, which minimizes discomfort and allows for precise injections. Use a 1 ml syringe to ensure accurate dosing.

2. Dosing and Units

Determine the appropriate dosage of Innotox based on the treatment area and the severity of the wrinkles or lines. The recommended dosage varies, but typically ranges from 2 to 4 units per injection point for facial wrinkles. Always refer to the product guidelines for specific dosing information.

3. Injection Process

  • Positioning the Patient: Position the patient comfortably, either seated or lying down, depending on the treatment area.

  • Skin Stretching: Gently stretch the skin around the injection site to create a smooth surface. This helps in precise placement of the needle and reduces discomfort.

  • Injection Angle and Depth: Hold the syringe at a 45-degree angle to the skin surface for superficial injections, such as for crow's feet, or at a 90-degree angle for deeper injections, such as for glabellar lines. Insert the needle into the marked point, ensuring it reaches the appropriate depth without hitting underlying structures.

  • Administering the Toxin: Slowly depress the syringe plunger to inject the botulinum toxin into the target muscle. Avoid injecting too quickly to minimize the risk of diffusion to adjacent muscles. Withdraw the needle gently and apply slight pressure to the injection site with a sterile gauze pad to prevent bruising.

  • Multiple Injections: If multiple injections are needed, repeat the process at each marked point, ensuring even distribution of the toxin.

Post-Injection Care

After administering Innotox, provide patients with post-treatment instructions. Advise them to avoid touching or massaging the treated area for 24 hours to prevent toxin migration. Additionally, recommend refraining from strenuous activity, alcohol consumption, and heat exposure for 24 to 48 hours. Monitor patients for any adverse reactions and schedule a follow-up appointment for evaluation.

Precautions And Contraindications for Inject Innotox

Like other botulinum toxin injections, injection of Innotox requires careful handling and consideration of various precautions and contraindications to ensure safety and efficacy. Here are the key points to consider:

  • Known Hypersensitivity: Innotox is contraindicated in individuals with a known hypersensitivity to botulinum toxin or any of the excipients in the formulation.

  • Infection at the Injection Site: Do not inject Innotox into areas with active infection or inflammation.

  • Neuromuscular Disorders: Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as myasthenia gravis, Eaton-Lambert syndrome, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) should not receive Innotox due to an increased risk of systemic effects and complications.

  • Bleeding Disorders: Patients with bleeding disorders or those taking anticoagulant therapy may be at increased risk of bleeding and bruising at the injection site.

  • Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: The safety of Innotox in pregnant or breastfeeding women has not been established. It is generally recommended to avoid use during pregnancy and lactation unless absolutely necessary and after thorough risk assessment.

  • Acute Illness: Postpone treatment in patients with acute illness or in poor general health until they have recovered.

  • Observation Post-Injection: Monitor the patient for a period after injection to observe any immediate adverse reactions.
