Alternatives To Innotox
Innotox was one of the only products that came in liquid form and didn't need additional dilution. Unfortunately there are no similar products currently in the market that come in a liquid form. All other products come in a powder form and need to be reconstituted which isn't as difficult as it sounds like.
Below you can see the other available brands on the market

Now that we have gone over all the different brands, let's have a look at how to reconstitute these products.
Medical professionals say that the toxin to saline ratio is based on the patient's conditions and should be determined by the doctor, but there are definitely some guideline ratios that you can follow.
With every toxin comes an instruction leaflet which always includes a dilution table.You can see an example of this table below.
If you want to reconstitute it to the same resulting dose as Innotox, you will need 4U / 0.1 ml. This means if you have a 100U product, you will need 2.5 ml of saline and for a 200U product you need 5 ml of saline.
- 100U products -> 2.5ml of saline to have 4U / 0.1 ml
- 200U products -> 5ml of saline to have 4U / 0.1 ml
Most will use 2.5 ml with 100 units, however this can be further diluted - every single specialist will have their own hyper dilution, based upon a tailored approach to your specific skin concerns. Again there is no specific ratio to follow as it depends on your condition and also on the specific product.
