What Is Daxxify?
Daxxify is a new neuromodulator that treats dynamic lines formed by repetitive facial movements like frowning and laughing. The treatment works by targeting muscle contractions that lead to expression lines to produce a smoother, more youthful appearance. Daxxify comes from the same creator of the RHA line of dermal fillers, Revance Aesthetics™.
Daxxify is similar to other neuromodulators like Botox® Cosmetic but with an advanced formulation for longer-lasting results. Daxxify has a proprietary peptide formula that stabilizes it for up to 6-9 months or even more for some patients.
Concerns Treated by Daxxify
Daxxify is a safe and effective treatment option for glabellar lines, also known as frown lines, as well as other wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. It is an FDA-approved treatment that underwent years of clinical studies to ensure its efficacy as a dynamic wrinkle treatment. Typically these lines only appear when making facial expressions, but as we age and lose skin laxity, those lines can become a permanent facial feature. Daxxify relaxes the muscles to reduce these lines and prevent future wrinkles from forming.
What to Expect from Your Daxxify Treatment
During your Daxxify consultation in our New Jersey office, our board-certified dermatologists will provide a comprehensive facial examination and discuss your health and medical history. Our experts listen to your desires and concerns and create a custom plan.
Daxxify is a quick treatment lasting approximately 5-15 minutes. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area for a comfortable experience if the patient requests it. Next, a tiny needle is inserted directly into the muscle to inject the medication. Patients can expect minimal discomfort and can immediately return to normal daily activities.
Recovery from a Daxxify Treatment
Daxxify does not require downtime after treatment. It is a minimally-invasive procedure performed with a tiny needle. Patients can return to daily activities without signs they just had a cosmetic procedure performed. Some patients can experience mild side effects at the injection site, including:
These side effects are temporary and should dissipate within 1-2 days. Your board-certified dermatologist will provide aftercare instructions to achieve the best results.
Am I a good candidate for a Daxxify procedure?
You may be a good candidate for Daxxify if you are in good health and have mild to severe expression lines you would like to address. Men and women of all ages and skin tones can benefit from Daxxify treatments.
Many patients can see an immediate improvement in the treatment area, but complete results continue over several days. Results can take 1-7 days and last up to six months. Like other neuromodulators, Daxxify is not a permanent solution to dynamic wrinkles and requires regular injections to maintain results. Your expert physician will work with you to schedule regular visits and keep your skin looking natural and youthful.
