Tools and devices
1} 3DOSE Unit Dose Injector, TSK Laboratory. The disposable BTX injector — 3Dose
Unit Dose Injector — with a patented clicker system allows for utmost accurate dosing.

The disposable syringe allows for more accurate, consistent and easier injections for all the FDA approved botulinum toxins in different dilutions. Dialing down the plunger to the wanted dose per click enables for various dose settings and different volumes (up to the smallest volume possible: 0.0125ml).

With the LifeViz® Infinity, you begin by taking a ‘life-like’ 3D image of the patient, then simulate and identify the right implant directly in the BreastShaper software. Rather than having different hardware for face and body, simulation and/or skin analysis, the LifeViz® Infinity offers a comprehensive solution in an all-in-one system. This new addition to the LifeViz® range will bring portability to face and now breast and body 3D acquisition.
