There is a Chinese wrinkle treatment called BTXA.
The ingredient contains pork collagen (gelatin), so allergic reactions are relatively high. Moreover, Chinese products are said to contain a large amount of impurities due to inadequate production technology. Naturally, FDA is not approved. There is also a quality control problem, and the number of units per vial may vary by up to 20 times. In other words, you may have received 10 times the prescribed dose without your knowledge. Due to the nature of BotulinumToxin TypeA, if a large amount of component is injected at one time, antibody production occurs (the component can be immunized), and then treatment with BotulinumToxin TypeA will be ineffective for the rest of the life. It is an inferior product that repeats approaches to medical institutions when a contractor can purchase it at a low price.
Allegan botox is an inferior product that is being sold to cosmetic surgery and cosmetic dermatology clinics by virtue of the fact that it can be purchased at the price of 4 from 5.
An increasing number of people have recently complained that this medicine was used at other medical institutions and had no therapeutic effect. In our hospital, many patients have been injected with Chinese botox and have come to re-treatment if they do not feel the effect at all.
It is used as a matter of course at a major cosmetic surgery clinic that treats botox at a discount. Wakiga, hyperhidrosis and lots of botox? The name of the drug must be confirmed.
This is an act that should not degrade the quality of aesthetic medicine.
Isn't it serious enough not to come out more than the problem of eating?
Even without knowing about the treatment of wrinkles and hyperhidrosis, medical materials mixed with impurities made in China may be injected and even life threatens.
There is also a medical material made in Korea called Neuronox. This is the Korean version of Botox.
The effect is thin. It will be sent by regular Takkyubin instead of a cool flight at the time of delivery. In addition, since there is no need for customs clearance at the clinic, there is a possibility that they are smuggled in baggage from Korea. If your storage temperature is well controlled in your home country, it may be better than the one made in China, but stability is not confirmed and it is not recommended.
Whether it is made in Korea or made in China, both are copy heavenly drugs. The level of recent industrial products in Korea has improved dramatically, while that in China is terrible. In particular, the safety of food and drugs is questionable. Rather, it is no exaggeration to say that it is an inferior drug for profit only.
Botox is a simple procedure called injection, and it seems that there are many patients who don't care about drugs because there are relatively few side effects. Money-making clinics will never spend time on specific medications or treatments. In recent years, aesthetic medicine has come to require quality. Dermatologists, physicians and gynecologists who are not only a major cosmetic surgery chain but also lacking in knowledge of cosmetic medicine are attracting patients at low prices using Chinese-made botox as a cosmetic dermatologist. There are cases.
I have to protect myself.
Discounted low quality medical care. I am worried that it will hinder the development of aesthetic medicine.
