Botox-Booster Zytaze Available at MUSE Aesthetics

Updated: Mar 3

Current patients may obtain Zytaze by arranging a pickup time through our online appointment system and selecting Zytaze Purchase & Pickup. Please review the details below prior to purchase.

For best results, Zytaze should be taken 4 days before and the day of your Botox/Dysport appointment.

Zytaze is a clinically developed nutritional supplement specifically formulated to enhance the effectiveness and longevity of botulinum toxin injections, such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and others. The key ingredient in Zytaze is zinc citrate, combined with phytase, an enzyme that increases zinc absorption in the body. Zinc is a critical mineral necessary for the enzymatic activity that the botulinum toxin relies on to exert its effects. Some patients have lower levels of zinc in their bodies, which can potentially reduce the effectiveness of botulinum toxin treatments. Zytaze is designed to be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure optimal results and safety.

By supplementing with Zytaze for 4 days before and the day of receiving botulinum toxin injections, patients may experience an improved response to treatment, including enhanced results and possibly extended duration of the toxin's cosmetic or therapeutic effects of up to 30%.

Is Zinc safe for everyone to take?

Zytaze contains 10 capsules, enough to properly take the supplement for one treatment. Taking 50 mg of Zinc daily is not recommended for an extended period of time. There are also other circumstances where Zinc supplementation may not be appropriate.

While zinc is an essential mineral beneficial for many bodily functions, certain individuals should exercise caution or avoid taking zinc supplements without consulting a healthcare provider. These include:

  1. People with Zinc Allergy: Individuals allergic to zinc should not take zinc supplements.

  2. Individuals with Hemochromatosis: This condition causes the body to absorb too much iron, and taking zinc can exacerbate iron overload.

  3. Patients with Copper Deficiency: High doses of zinc can interfere with the absorption of copper, leading to a deficiency in this other essential mineral.

  4. People with Kidney Disease: Those with kidney problems may not be able to excrete zinc properly, leading to accumulation and potential toxicity.

  5. Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women

  6. People with Gastrointestinal Disorders: Conditions like Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and other gastrointestinal issues may affect how the body absorbs zinc, necessitating a tailored approach to supplementation.

  7. Individuals on Certain Medications:

  • Tetracycline Antibiotics (lymecycline, methacycline, minocycline, rolitetracycline, and doxycycline)

  • Quinolone Antibiotics (ciprofloxacin, gemifloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, norfloxacin, and ofloxacin)

  • Steroids (prednisone, methylprednisolone, dexamethasone, cortisone, betamethasone, triamcinolone, hydrocortisone, budesonide, celestone, deflazacort, orapred, pulmicort, beclometasone, and fluticasone)

  • Chemotherapy

  • Amiloride (Midamor)

  • Other Immunosuppressants (cyclosporine, tacrolimus, sirolimus, everolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, mizoribine, leflunomide, and azathioprine)

It's crucial for anyone considering zinc supplements to consult with a healthcare professional, especially if they have existing health conditions or are on medication, to determine the appropriate dosage and ensure that zinc supplementation is safe for their specific situation.

What can cause Zinc deficiency?

Zinc deficiency can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  1. Dietary Restrictions or Insufficient Intake: People who consume a limited variety of foods or adhere to a strict vegetarian or vegan diet may not get enough zinc, as the mineral is primarily found in meat, shellfish, and legumes.

  2. Malabsorption Syndromes: Conditions like Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, and other gastrointestinal disorders can interfere with the absorption of zinc from the intestine.

  3. Chronic Diseases: Diseases such as chronic renal disease, sickle cell disease, diabetes, and liver disease can lead to decreased absorption or increased loss of zinc from the body.

  4. Alcoholism: Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to zinc deficiency due to malabsorption and the increased need for zinc by the body to metabolize alcohol.

  5. Age: Infants who are breastfed, particularly if they are premature or born to mothers with insufficient zinc, may not receive adequate zinc. Elderly individuals may also be at risk due to dietary restrictions, reduced absorption, and certain medications.

  6. Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: These conditions increase the body’s need for zinc, and if the increased demand is not met through diet or supplementation, deficiency can occur.

  7. Certain Medications: Use of some diuretics, anticonvulsants, and other medications can interfere with zinc absorption or increase zinc excretion.

  8. Genetic Disorders: Rare genetic mutations like Acrodermatitis enteropathica can affect zinc absorption and metabolism, leading to severe deficiency.
