In the ever-changing world of cosmetics, one thing has remained constant: BOTOX® Cosmetic has been the go-to treatment for wrinkles with maintenance treatments averaging 2-3 times per year. Daxxify is the new FDA approved neuromodulator which has been shown in large, well-performed studies to last up to 2-3 months longer than BOTOX® Cosmetic for most patients. Some users reported results lasting up to 9 months.
Daxxify uses the same active neuromodulator as BOTOX® Cosmetic to treat the vertical frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The key difference is that the neuromodulator is encased in a stabilizing membrane of peptides that binds it securely to the receptors in the muscles of expression thereby blocking the chemical signal for contraction from reaching the muscle. Less repetitive animation over time means fewer lines and smoother skin.
Comparing Daxxify and BOTOX® Cosmetic: Recovery, Results, and Risks
Both Daxxify and BOTOX® Cosmetic share numerous benefits such as being minimally invasive with a low risk of side effects such as short term swelling and bruising. A temporary drooping eyelid is a rare adverse reaction that can be treated with special eyedrops until it resolves. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Forley possesses a deep understanding of facial anatomy and muscles which will not only enable you to achieve the best possible result from your treatment but also significantly reduces the risk of any complications.
Daxxify: Faster Results and Fewer Treatments
Clinical studies show that patients often see results within 24-48 hours after treatment. Neuromodulators are known to have their peak effect in the first 1-2 months after injection with a gradual return to full muscle contraction over the subsequent 2-3 months. Daxxify extends that timeline of return to full muscle contraction by an additional 2-3 months and even longer in some patients. The secret behind Daxxify’s long lasting results is the unique peptide membrane that differentiates it from all the other neuromodulators.
