Introducing Daxxify: The Longer Lasting Alternative to Botox

Daxxify, also known as Daxi, is a brand new FDA-approved product that is similar to Botox in its effects, but with a much longer duration of action. If you’re familiar with Botox, you know that it’s a popular treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But with Daxxify, you can achieve the same results with longer-lasting effects.

How does Daxxify work?

Both Botox and Daxxify contain the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin A. This toxin works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. When injected into targeted muscles, it relaxes them, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance. However, Daxxify incorporates a unique protein into its formulation that is responsible for protecting the active ingredient from breaking down, thus extending its duration of action.

The benefits of Daxxify

One of the most significant advantages of Daxxify is its longer-lasting effects. While Botox typically lasts between three to four months, Daxxify can last up to six months. This means that patients can enjoy the results of their treatment for a more extended period, reducing the need for frequent visits to the doctor’s office.

Another benefit of Daxxify is its faster onset of action. Patients can see results from Daxxify in as little as 24-48 hours after treatment, compared to 3-5 days with Botox. This means that patients can enjoy their smoother, more youthful appearance sooner.

Furthermore, Daxxify has been extensively tested and is proven to be safe and effective. It is FDA-approved and has undergone rigorous clinical trials, ensuring that patients can trust in the product’s quality and safety.

The Daxxify experience

The Daxxify treatment process is quick and easy. The treatment typically takes between 15-30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. The procedure involves injecting small amounts of the product into targeted muscles using a fine needle. Patients may experience some mild discomfort during the procedure, but this can be minimized with the use of a topical anesthetic.

After the treatment, patients can return to their normal activities immediately, with minimal downtime required. However, they should avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24 hours after treatment to ensure that the product settles correctly.

Is Daxxify right for you?

If you are looking for a longer-lasting alternative to Botox, then Daxxify may be the perfect solution for you. Daxxify is suitable for most people over the age of 18 who are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is essential to consult with a licensed healthcare professional to determine if Daxxify is the right treatment for you, so contact the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center to schedule your appointment.

Daxxify is a new FDA approved treatment that helps smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles in the face. It is similar to Botox in its effects but longer lasting, with results that last for six months on average and up to nine months in some patients.

Daxxify is significantly longer lasting than Botox due its incorporation of a protein into its formulation. In fact, Daxxify is the longest lasting treatment of its kind currently available.  Results last for six months on average and up to nine months in some patients.

Yes.  Daxxify is extremely safe.  Daxxify was studied in the largest-ever clinical trial for a frown line treatment.  The study included more than 2,700 patients across different age groups and skin types. More than 4200 treatments were done on these patients during the study.  These are some of the key findings from the study that confirmed the safety of Daxxify:

  • The active ingredient in Daxxify is botulinum toxin type A. This is the same ingredient that has been used cosmetically for more than 20 years in Botox and in other similar products such as Dysport and Xeomin without any significant safety concerns
  • 96% of patients treated with Daxxify were satisfied with their results
  • There were no serious treatment-related side effects in the study
  • In addition, the safety of Daxxify is further enhanced by the fact that there are no human or animal byproducts in Daxxify.

Most patients will only need to have a Daxxify treatment twice a year, due to the longer duration of action with Daxxify.  With Botox, patients are generally treated at least three times a year.

Results from Daxxify typically begin to appear within two to three days after treatment.  This is in contrast to Botox, which typically takes five to seven days for results to begin to appear.

Yes.  Patients with all skin types can be treated safely with Daxxify.  In the clinical trials leading to FDA approval, there were no notable differences between the various skin types in how Daxxify performed.
