Use and Action
Because the ATX-NAT is based on argireline, its effect is very similar to that of Botulinum Toxin A. But instead of paralyzing the muscles like Botulinum Toxin A does, it actually relaxes them in a natural way. The result is firmer skin and a subsequent improvement of lines and wrinkles.
ATX-NAT is recommended to treat oxidized skin, as an alternative to Botulinum Toxin A injections or possibly, to prolong its effect. It is highly recommended to infuse the ATX-NAT using our special 3-nozzle Prestige handpiece, which is especially designed for the ATXNAT single-use vials. It allows for maximum effect in a very comfortable way, plus avoids any waste of product.
Main active ingredients
A peptide made of six amino acids, argireline has a very similar activity to that of Botulinum Toxin A. Argireline is used in the ATX-NAT Solution for its ability to reduce deep wrinkles. It has a superior safety profile compared to Botulinum Toxin A, which, unlike argireline, irrevocably breaks the SNAP-25 protein, impedes the creation of the SHARE complex and consequently paralyzes the muscle.
An organic compound that is commonly found in plants, betaine has the ability to modulate effects of hyperosmolarity on cell functions. It’s used for protection against osmotic stress, drought, high salinity or high temperature. Intracellular accumulation of betaines permits water retention in cells, protecting from the effects of dehydration. Betaines also increase cell membrane fluidity, facilitating the absorption of nutrients in the cell.
ATX-NAT effectiveness proven by research
Conducted by the University of Pavia, a research project on ATXNAT included a panel test of 20 females. With ages ranging between 30 and 60 years, they each received 6 treatments – twice a week of ATX-NAT. The self-reported results showed very good acceptability by patient:
• Skin brightness improved in 100% of the patients
• Visibility of macro-wrinkles deceased in 78%
• Skin softness improved in 78%
Plus, instrumental measurements showed:
• Wrinkles volume decreased by 21%
• Wrinkles Depth decreased by 11%
• Wrinkles surface decreases by 13% after 6 treatments
