Daxxify from Revance Therapeutics is a FDA-approved, long-lasting neuromodulator with a peptide-based formula. Like other neuromodulators (botulinum toxin injections), Daxxify uses botulinum toxin type A to temporarily block nerve signals to facial muscles and prevent muscle contractions that cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop on the overlying skin. This weakens the muscles and prevents muscle contractions that cause fine lines and wrinkles on the overlying skin. The addition of peptides creates a stronger, more durable formula with results that develop quicker and last longer compared to other botulinum toxin products like Botox.
Daxxify treatments start with a consultation at our office. Our providers will discuss your goals, medical history, and examine your skin to determine whether Daxxify is right for you. Daxxify injections only take a few minutes and are not considered painful by most patients. Fine needles will be used to precisely administer the injectable to the treatment areas.
Daxxify is currently FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines) between the brows. These are dynamic wrinkles that form after repeated facial movements like frowning, laughing, and squinting. Other types of facial wrinkles and deeper folds can be corrected with other injectables or dermal fillers.
Healthy adults who are bothered by forehead wrinkles or wish to prevent their formation can benefit from Daxxify. If you have severe allergies, an active skin infection, or are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, you might have to wait to receive Daxxify or our providers will suggest another appropriate treatment.
There is virtually no recovery and downtime after Daxxify. Mild injection site swelling and bruising are common but will improve within a few days. What’s most exciting is that Daxxify results often last about six months and can last up to nine months for some patients.
