What Is Daxxify?

Daxxify is an FDA-approved injectable cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of glabellar lines between the eyebrows. The treatment, which leaves the facial skin looking smooth and youthful, is known for its powerful, long-lasting results.

How Does Daxxify Work?

Daxxify is made using the neurotoxin botulinum toxin type A, which is the same active ingredient found in treatments like Botox and Dysport. When this neuromodulator is injected into the facial muscles, it temporarily cuts off communication between the nerves and the muscles. This prevents those muscles from contracting, which smooths out the skin and softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles. While the neuromodulator is present, it also keeps new wrinkles from forming in the area.

One thing that separates Daxxify from other neuromodulators is the fact that it’s formulated with Peptide Exchange Technology. Rather than using human or animal byproducts to stabilize the neurotoxin, Daxxify uses peptides, which allows it to create more powerful, longer-lasting results than other wrinkle treatments.

Benefits of Daxxify

If you’re experiencing moderate to severe glabellar lines, Daxxify can offer some or all of the following benefits:

  • Greatly reduces the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Creates smoother, more youthful-looking skin
  • Temporarily prevents new frown lines from forming
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Little to no recovery downtime
  • Safe, FDA-approved treatment
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Quick, non-invasive procedure

What Should I Expect During the Treatment?

If you’re interested in Daxxify treatment, the first step will be to have a quick consultation with one of our medical providers. They’ll talk with you about the treatment, answer your questions, and help you determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for Daxxify.

The treatment itself will be a quick outpatient procedure performed right at our clinic. To begin, your provider will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin in the targeted area. They will then inject the Daxxify into your facial muscles using a very fine needle. You may feel a slight pinch, but it shouldn’t be particularly painful. In total, the treatment will take only around 15 to 30 minutes, and you can leave right away once the procedure is finished.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

Most patients don’t require any significant recovery downtime after undergoing Daxxify treatment. You should be able to return to work and resume your normal routine immediately after the procedure. However, you should wait at least 24 hours before partaking in strenuous physical activity, and you’ll need to avoid rubbing or scratching the injection sites for several days.

Am I a Candidate for Daxxify?

Adults who would like to be rid of their frown lines could be good candidates for Daxxify. Ideal candidates for the treatment should:

  • Be in generally good physical health
  • Have moderate to severe glabellar lines
  • Have the desire for smoother, more youthful-looking skin between the eyebrows
  • Have reasonable expectations for the treatment
  • Have no active skin infections near the treatment area
  • Have no allergies to botulinum toxin type A or any other Daxxify ingredients
  • Be a non-smoker
  • Not be currently pregnant or nursing
