What is DAXXIFY®?
DAXXIFY® is a cutting-edge cosmetic treatment designed to target and address those stubborn fine lines and wrinkles that tend to appear as we age. It’s the go-to solution for individuals looking to rejuvenate their skin and regain a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.
DAXXIFY® is based on the principles of neurotoxin injections. This non-invasive treatment harnesses the power of a carefully formulated neurotoxin to relax specific facial muscles responsible for the formation of wrinkles. In particular, it’s highly effective in treating dynamic wrinkles—those that appear when you make facial expressions like smiling, frowning, or raising your eyebrows.
The magic is in the peptide coating the neurotoxin (like a little crystal ball 🔮). This can be a game-changer for patients! It is being used “off-label” for other indications such as migraines, muscle myalgia, and trigger point therapy. It is FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe Glabellar lines and in August 2023 it was approved it for treating cervical dystonia.
DAXXIFY® is the first and only peptide-formulated neuromodulator for this condition. Results can last between 6-9 months which is 2-3 times longer than BOTOX for some patients.
The Glabellar Area: Targeting the “11’s”
One of the most common areas treated with DAXXIFY® is the glabellar region, often referred to as the “11’s.” These are the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows when you frown or furrow your brow. Over time, repeated muscle contractions in this area can lead to the formation of deep, noticeable lines.
With its precision and expertise, DAXXIFY® can help smooth out these lines, providing a more relaxed and youthful appearance. It’s like hitting the reset button on your skin’s clock.
The DAXXIFY® Experience
The treatment process is straightforward and relatively quick, making it a convenient choice for those with busy lifestyles. Here’s what you can expect during your session:
- Consultation: Your journey begins with a consultation with a certified and experienced practitioner – me! I’ll assess your unique facial anatomy and discuss your goals and expectations. We will discuss risks/benefits and answer all questions you might have about the product.
- Treatment: During the treatment, a small amount of the DAXXIFY® neurotoxin is injected into specific muscle groups. The procedure is minimally uncomfortable, and most individuals experience only mild discomfort and no downtime.
- Results: Unlike surgical procedures, DAXXIFY® doesn’t provide instant results. You’ll start noticing improvements in about 3-5 days, with optimal results appearing within 2 weeks. The effects typically last for several months, and touch-up treatments can help maintain your youthful look.
DAXXIFY® offers numerous advantages that have made it a popular choice among those seeking a more youthful appearance:
- Non-invasive: No need for surgery or extensive recovery time.
- Natural-Looking Results: DAXXIFY® provides subtle and natural-looking results, allowing you to express emotions without the worry of deep wrinkles.
- Minimal Downtime: You can return to your daily activities almost immediately after the procedure.
- Customizable: DAXXIFY® can be tailored to address your specific concerns and facial features.
