What is Daxxify?
Daxxify is a unique long-acting neuromodulator, distinct from traditional treatments like Botox because it contains a purified protein known as botulinum toxin type A, which is the active ingredient responsible for its effectiveness.1 Studies have demonstrated that Daxxify can provide similar wrinkle reducing effects while lasting longer than other neuromodulators.2 In some patients, the treatment’s effects have lasted for up to nine months before fully wearing off.
Benefits of Daxxify
Daxxify provides a variety of advantages as a frown line and facial wrinkle treatment, including:
- Non-surgical and non-invasive approach
- Long-lasting results that can last up to 6-9 months
- No downtime or recovery period required
- Quick treatment that usually takes about 10 minutes
- Visible effects within a few days after the injection
How Does Daxxify Work?
Daxxify is a neuromodulator medication that relaxes muscles responsible for causing wrinkles, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. It works by inhibiting the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles, blocking the release of acetylcholine, which plays a role in muscle contraction. While similar to other neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport, Daxxify has a unique advantage in its ability to more effectively reach the site of action, allowing more of the active ingredient to reach its target.
What to Expect From Daxxify
Daxxify injections typically provide results that last up to six months, with some patients experiencing the effects for up to nine months. However, individual results can vary depending on factors such as the severity of wrinkles, your metabolism, and your skin type.
Following your Daxxify injection, you’ll notice a temporary reduction in wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, such as forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the eyebrows. The treatment’s effects should be noticeable within a few days and will continue to improve over the next week or two.
Preparing for Daxxify
There is very little preparation needed for Botox injections. You may be advised to avoid alcohol and blood thinners in the days leading up to your appointment in order to prevent bruising.
Your Daxxify Appointment
To administer Daxxify, a series of injections are given during a quick and relatively painless procedure. Effects are typically visible within a few days after treatment.
Recovery After Daxxify
After receiving Daxxify injections, recovery time is typically not necessary, and you can resume normal activities immediately. Though some people may experience mild side effects, such as swelling, redness, pain, or tenderness at the injection site, these typically resolve within a few days.
Is Daxxify Right For Me?
If you’re seeking a non-surgical treatment option to address wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, such as frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead wrinkles, Daxxify may be a suitable option for you. During your consultation, you’ll have the chance to discuss your medical history and treatment goals to determine if Daxxify is the right choice for you.
It’s important to note that Daxxify isn’t recommended for individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have an allergy to any of its ingredients, have a skin infection at the injection site, or have a neurological disorder that affects muscle function.
