What is Daxxify?
Daxxify is a new neuromodulator that treats dynamic wrinkles formed from repetitive facial expressions like smiling, frowning, and laughing. The treatment works in a similar fashion to Botox or other neuromodulators, but results may last up to 6-9 months in some patients. Revance, the maker of Daxxify, is a biotechnology company focusing on aesthetic and therapeutic treatments and has created other notable injectable treatments like RHA dermal fillers.
Daxxify has been rigorously tested for safety and efficacy and was approved by the FDA in September, 2022.
The board-certified dermatologists at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York have been involved in the clinical trials of Daxxify, ensuring our patients receive the safest treatments with the best possible results. All of our injectable treatments are performed by our physicians so patients know they will receive the highest level of care and the best possible results.
How does Daxxify Work?
Daxxify targets key muscles, preventing them from contracting and creating wrinkles when you make certain facial movements. As the targeted muscles relax, facial lines smooth away to create a more youthful appearance. This advanced neuromodulator has a proprietary peptide formulation that creates a stabilizing effect, making the treatment last longer than other neuromodulators.
What Does Daxxify Treat?
Daxxify is currently approved to treat glabellar lines, also known as 11’s, which form between the eyes when you make facial movements like frowning. These expression lines reset when you are young due to elastin in the skin, but as you age, the wrinkles become more prominent and can remain present even when you are not using facial muscles. Daxxify can also treat fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and horizontal forehead wrinkles..
What Is A Daxxify Treatment Like?
Daxxify is a neuromodulator, so it functions similarly to other neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Neuromodulators relax the muscles that form wrinkles during facial expressions like laughing, smiling, frowning, and talking. Daxxify uses a proprietary formulation with a stabilizing factor that makes it last longer than other neuromodulators. The most popular of the neuromodulators, Botox, is known to last approximately 3-4 months, whereas Daxxify can last for up to six months or even longer for many patients.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Daxxify?
Daxxify requires minimal downtime. Most patients can immediately return to normal daily activities. Some patients may experience mild side effects such as swelling or redness, but many show no signs of a cosmetic treatment. Side effects are temporary and typically subside within a few hours of the procedure.
When Will I See Results?
Many patients can see initial results immediately after treatment that continue over several days. Complete results are visible within one week and last up to six months or even longer for many patients.
