What is Daxxify?

Daxxify is the newest FDA-approved neuromodulator. Like Botox, Daxxify is an injectable that uses botulinum toxin type A to temporarily prevent muscle contractions and the formation of dynamic lines and wrinkles. However, Daxxify marks a large step forward for neuromodulators because it is made with a peptide-based formula instead of animal-based products. The peptide formula creates a stronger substance for long-lasting results.

Daxxify is currently approved for the treatment of glabellar lines (also called frown lines or eleven lines) by off-label uses in other areas of the forehead and around the eyes for crow’s feet have proven successful with equally long-lasting results.

Who is a Good Candidate for Daxxify?

Almost anyone hoping to smooth frown lines between the brows is a good candidate for Daxxify! You should not have an allergy to botulinum toxin or currently taking blood thinners. Daxxify should also be avoided by pregnant women, patients with a history of bleeding problems, and those with neuromuscular disorders.

How Long Do Daxxify Results Last?

Daxxify is clinically proven to last two months longer than Botox. This means results last an average of six months and up to nine months for some patients! Patients only need two treatments every year to maintain smooth skin and a youthful appearance.

What Should I Expect During Recovery

Daxxify requires virtually no downtime although there are a few common side effects like mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the injection site. These symptoms will improve within a few days and can be alleviated with an ice pack or over-the-counter pain relievers. You should avoid strenuous activity and rubbing the treatment area for a few days since this could cause the product to shift. Patients often start to see results in about 1-2 days and notice smoother wrinkles than with treatment with other neuromodulators.
