Linetox is a state-of-the-art Botulinum toxin type A made in South Korea. It is approved by the KFDA and targets glabellar lines, and crow’s feet and can also be used in your masseter muscles.
How Does It Work?
Linetox is a botulinum toxin type A that comes as a fine powder that has to be diluted with 0.9% saline. When injected into the muscle, The toxin blocks signals that tell the muscle to contract. This injected muscle can no longer contract, which helps wrinkles caused by movement to relax and soften and prevents new ones from forming. Results can often be seen after 5~14 days and can last up to 4 months.
How To Dilute Linetox 100U?
The Linetox 100U vial contains a fine, freeze-dried powder containing 100 units of Botulinum toxin type A that needs to be diluted with 0.9% saline.
