What is DAXXIFY®?

DAXXIFY® is an injectable wrinkle relaxer, which puts it into the same category as other popular injectables like Botox® and Dysport®. DAXXIFY® is a botulinum toxin injectable, which means it can temporarily relax the facial muscles to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. Frown lines and other facial wrinkles, particularly those located between the eyebrows, are primarily caused by the frequent movement of facial muscles. Therefore, relaxing the facial muscles can immediately reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and even prevent them from worsening.

While DAXXIFY® is primarily intended for the treatment of frown lines and other wrinkles between the eyebrows, wrinkle relaxers as a whole are commonly used to address the following concerns:

  • Forehead lines and wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Gummy smiles
  • Perioral lines
  • Platysmal bands

What Makes DAXXIFY® Different from Other Wrinkle Relaxers?

DAXXIFY® has quickly set itself apart from other wrinkle relaxers like Botox® and Dysport® because it offers longer-lasting results. Most neuromodulator injectables produce results that last for 3-4 months, on average. DAXXIFY® offers results that last an average of 6 months, with some patients enjoying results that last as long as 9 months. The main reason for this is that DAXXIFY® includes a novel peptide as a stabilizing ingredient, whereas many other botulinum toxin products use human or animal byproducts. For patients who want to prioritize long-lasting results and fewer treatment sessions, DAXXIFY® is certainly worth considering.

What Should I Do Before a DAXXIFY® Treatment?

DAXXIFY® requires little preparation, but we do recommend avoiding the following substances for 72 hours prior to treatment:

  • Retin-A
  • Blood thinners
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Fish or oils rich in omega 3
  • Allergy medication
  • Topical steroids
  • Sleep medications and supplements
  • Aspirin
  • John’s Wort
  • Supplements containing Vitamin E
  • Ibuprofen

This helps to minimize bruising, bleeding, and discomfort. Additionally, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Rich Castellano of ImageLift® to ensure that DAXXIFY® a good fit for you.

What is the DAXXIFY® Treatment Like?

Your DAXXIFY® treatment will begin with the application of a topical anesthetic, which numbs the skin to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Then, our master injectors will use a fine needle to inject DAXXIFY® into the desired treatment areas. The location and number of these injections will depend on the areas being treated and your desired results. The DAXXIFY® treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes, making it a quick and convenient treatment for anyone with a busy schedule.

What Happens After the DAXXIFY® Treatment?

DAXXIFY®  requires no downtime or recovery period, so you’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately after your visit. However, you may experience some mild swelling, redness or tenderness in and around the injection site. These side effects typically go away on their own within a few days.

How Soon Will I See Results from DAXXIFY®?

DAXXIFY® works quickly. Many patients begin seeing results the day after treatment, with most patients seeing results within 2 days of treatment. These results will continue to improve for a few days following treatment until the DAXXIFY® formula takes full effect. The full and final results from your DAXXIFY® treatment are typically visible within two weeks.

How Long Will the Results from DAXXIFY® Last?

While most wrinkle relaxers produce results that last 3-4 months on average, DAXXIFY® offers significantly longer-lasting results, lasting about 6 months on average. In some cases, patients may experience results that last as long as 9 months.
