What is Daxxify®?
Daxxify® is an injectable treatment specifically designed to reduce the appearance of frown lines. It falls into the category of neurotoxin products that utilize the botulinum toxin, which includes well-known injectables like Botox®. However, unlike leading products such as Botox®, Xeomin®, or Dysport®, which typically provide results lasting around 3 to 4 months, Daxxify® stands out by offering longer-lasting results.
How Does Daxxify® Work?
Similar to other injectable botulinum toxin treatments, Daxxify® works by inducing relaxation in the facial muscles upon injection. This relaxation helps to diminish the visibility of frown lines. However, Daxxify® utilizes a unique formulation that incorporates a novel peptide to stabilize the botulinum toxin component. While all botulinum toxin injectables require a stabilizing ingredient, many of them rely on human or animal byproducts that may not be as effective. In contrast, the novel peptide present in the Daxxify® formula extends the potency of the botulinum toxin, resulting in results that can last up to twice as long as other treatments targeting frown lines.
How is Daxxify® Administered in Ventura?
To administer the Daxxify® treatment, we may begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Then, we’ll deliver injections of the Daxxify® formula in and around the forehead area to target frown lines. The injections take only a few minutes to perform, making Daxxify® a quick and convenient solution for diminishing frown lines.
Rachael at the Daniel Island office was wonderful! She went above and beyond to answer all of my questions and make sure I was comfortable throughout the appointment. I can’t wait to schedule my next visit with her in a few months! - Lauren G.
Is There Any Downtime After Daxxify®?
Daxxify® injections require little to no downtime, and most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment. Some common injection-related side effects may occur, such as swelling, redness, tenderness, bruising, or itching at the injection site. These side effects are usually mild and temporary, resolving within a few days to a week.
What Results Can I Expect From Daxxify®?
Over time, the effects of Daxxify® will become noticeable as the botulinum toxin takes effect in the body. Typically, it takes about a week to observe the complete results of the treatment, although some individuals may notice improvements earlier. On average, the results of Daxxify® last approximately 6 months. However, some patients have reported results lasting up to 9 months. With regular maintenance treatments, it is possible to extend and prolong these results further.
How Much Does Daxxify® Cost?
Daxxify® is reasonably priced so you can enjoy the benefits of a more affordable treatment and follow-up treatments if you feel them necessary. During your consultation, we’ll assess your treatment goals and develop a personalized Daxxify® treatment plan based on your needs. Then, we’ll be able to provide you with the exact cost of your Daxxify® treatment.
