What is Daxxify®?
Daxxify® is an injectable neuromodulator that received FDA-approval in 2022 for the treatment of glabellar lines. At Janiga MDs, we use Daxxify to help patients soften lines, prevent new lines from forming, and revive their appearance. Daxxify works to inhibit muscle contraction, as it is a botulinum toxin A like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. The neurotoxin temporarily blocks nerve signals to the treated muscles. This minimizes the overactive and unwanted facial expressions that cause fine lines and wrinkles.
Daxxify is a long-lasting frown line treatment powered by a novel peptide. This product can last up to twice as long as alternative neuromodulators Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau. Most other neuromodulators are FDA approved to last up to 3-4 months, with no more than four treatments a year required to maintain your desired results. Daxxify is unique and more than half of patients only need two treatments a year to maintain results.
Neuromodulators require an ingredient to stabilize the botulinum toxin A, the protein that smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Daxxify is unique among other products because it uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer and contains no human or animal byproducts. This novel peptide helps to extend the effects of Daxxify.
Since Daxxify is a minimally invasive procedure, anesthesia is not required. The procedure will involve cleaning the injection sites and gentle insertion of the injection in your desired areas. The procedure typically takes between 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
Results & Recovery
Immediately after your treatment, you can resume your daily activities without missing work, but we do ask you to refrain from aggressive exercise, applying pressure to your face, or having a facial massage for the first few hours afterward. You can notice results from Daxxify within the following two days after your treatment. Results may last five to nine months per treatment depending on your body. Before your Daxxify appointment, our staff will carefully review all information and expectations with you.
