With its ability to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, Daxxify® has become a go-to solution for many individuals looking to enhance their appearance. Find out more about its benefits, procedure, safety, and everything you need to know before considering this popular treatment.
What is Daxxify®?
DAXXIFY® (daxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm) is a specific formulation of botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin commonly used in medical and cosmetic treatments. DAXXIFY® is a brand name for a botulinum toxin product that is developed and marketed by a pharmaceutical company. It is indicated for various therapeutic purposes, including the temporary improvement in the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, such as frown lines or forehead lines. DAXXIFY® is typically administered by a qualified healthcare professional through targeted injections into specific muscles to temporarily relax them and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. As with any medical procedure, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine if DAXXIFY® is suitable for your specific needs and to discuss potential benefits, risks, and alternatives.
One of the key advantages of Daxxify® is its ability to provide natural-looking results. If done correctly it can soften the appearance of wrinkles without freezing facial expressions entirely, allowing patients to maintain their natural range of expressions.
Daxxify® Cosmetic Treatment
Daxxify® is performed as a simple in-office procedure. The procedure begins with the placement of ice or a numbing agent on the areas to be treated. We will then map out the location of the injections, after reviewing your individual muscle movement of the face. Then the Daxxify® injections are meticulously placed at the site of maximal muscle movement. The needles used are ultra-fine, resulting in minimal discomfort. Many patients describe the sensation as a slight pinch or pressure. The Daxxify® results will typically take up to seven days to fully take effect, and last anywhere from three to six months. Additionally, recovery time is minimal, with most individuals resuming their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
The toxin works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the injected muscles, causing them to relax. This relaxation can help smooth out facial lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. The DAXXIFY® procedure is tailored to each individual’s unique needs and desired outcomes, and it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if this treatment is suitable and to discuss potential benefits, risks, and alternatives.
Botox® or Daxxify®?
DAXXIFY® (daxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm) and Botox (botulinum toxin type A) are both formulations of botulinum toxin used for various medical and cosmetic purposes. While they share similarities, there may be differences between the two treatments. It is important to consult with your NJ ENT doctor for personalized advice and to understand which option may be more suitable for your specific needs. Here are some general points to consider:
Advantages of DAXXIFY®:
Precision: DAXXIFY® may offer precise targeting and administration due to its specific formulation.
Duration: DAXXIFY® may provide longer-lasting effects compared to some traditional botulinum toxin formulations. In many instances it can last up to twice as long as conventional neurotoxins.
It is important to note that individual responses to treatments can vary, and the advantages or disadvantages may depend on factors such as desired outcomes, specific indications, and personal preferences. Your NJ ENT doctor can guide you in selecting the most appropriate treatment option based on your unique circumstances.
Possible Side Effects and Patient Safety of Daxxify®
Daxxify® is FDA-approved and has a long-standing track record of safety. Side effects, if any, are typically mild and temporary, such as slight bruising or redness at the injection site. Minimal bruising and swelling are seen.
