What is Daxxify? 

Daxxify is the newest FDA-approved neuromodulator with a longer-lasting formula. Like Botox and other neuromodulators, Daxxify is a botulinum toxin type A injectable. Botulinum toxin temporarily blocks nerve signals and paralyzes the facial muscles to prevent muscle contractions and the formation of severe lines and wrinkles. What makes Daxxify unique is that it is made from a peptide-based formula instead of animal byproducts or human serum albumin. Peptides stabilize the botulinum toxin for results that last significantly longer than other neuromodulators.

Benefits of Daxxify 

Daxxify is designed for severe frown lines caused by repeated muscle contractions and facial expressions like laughing, frowning, and smiling. This anti-wrinkle treatment smooths facial wrinkles to restore your natural youthful appearance.

Who is a Good Candidate for Daxxify? 

A longer lasting, Botox alternative from Revance Therapeutics is designed to treat glabellar lines (frown lines) between the brows. Patients who do not have an allergy to botulinum toxin and want to smooth their frown lines for a more youthful appearance can benefit from Daxxify cosmetic treatment. Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown will discuss your medical history and cosmetic goals with you at your consultation to determine if you are a good candidate.

How is Daxxify Treatment Performed? 

Daxxify only takes a few minutes to inject, and a local anesthetic can be applied to the area at the start of your treatment to help you feel comfortable. However, most patients tolerate this treatment well and do not need an anesthetic. Drs. Papel, Kontis, and Brown will use a fine needle to inject Daxxify into the muscles between the brows.

Results of Daxxify 

After Daxxify treatment, mild swelling and bruising around the injection site are common but these symptoms will improve within a few days. An ice pack or over-the-counter pain relievers can alleviate your discomfort and minimize swelling. It is also recommended that you avoid strenuous activity and rubbing your face since this could cause the product to shift.

In clinical trials, Daxxify has been proven to last an average of six months, but some patients saw results that lasted up to nine months. This means you may only need two annual treatments to maintain the appearance of your smooth, wrinkle-free skin.
