Wrinkle-fighting injectables have made it easier than ever to age with style. At Miami Skin & Vein, cosmetic dermatologist and highly trained injector Dr. Shaun Patel is excited to offer a cutting-edge injectable, DAXXIFY™, to help patients achieve a youthful appearance with minimal downtime. To find out what this new treatment could do for you, read on or schedule a consultation at 786-618-5039.
What is DAXXIFY?
DAXXIFY is a recently FDA-approved treatment from Revance Aesthetics designed to minimize moderate to severe glabellar lines (the “elevens”). Sometimes called DAXI for short, this peptide-powered botulinum toxin temporarily blocks neurotransmitters that cause muscle movement. This smooths dynamic wrinkles and prevents new lines from forming.
What Does DAXXIFY Treat?
In addition to treating lines between the forehead, DAXXIFY can be used off-label to treat TMJ disorder by softening the masseter muscles, forehead creases, crow’s feet, and fine lines on the nose (“bunny lines”).
How Is DAXXIFY™ Different From BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®?
For more than 20 years, BOTOX Cosmetic has cornered the anti-wrinkle injectables market. One of the reasons DAXXIFY’s release is so exciting is that it lasts significantly longer than other neuromodulators like BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport. While all three injectables use botulinum toxin to fight signs of aging, DAXXIFY is stabilized by a proprietary peptide.
This stabilizing component means DAXXIFY results can last six to nine months (about two to three times longer than BOTOX Cosmetic). DAXI also tends to outlast Dysport, which typically produces results for about three to four months.
In addition to being a longer-lasting alternative to other neurotoxins, DAXXIFY is the first that doesn’t use human or animal byproducts as a stabilizer.
Am I a Good Candidate for DAXXIFY?
DAXXIFY is generally safe and effective if you’re in good health, but Dr. Patel can review your medical history and aesthetic goals to ensure this treatment is the best fit for you.
You’re likely a good candidate for DAXXIFY if:
- You have bulkier facial muscles and deeper creases which DAXXIFY can address with its potent proprietary formula.
- You typically need a lot of toxin to see results. Men with stronger forehead muscles can benefit from this injectable.
- Your BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport results don’t last as long as you would like.
- Your primary concern is wrinkling, not volume loss which dermal fillers could better treat.
Is DAXXIFY Safe?
With any new treatment option, it’s normal to be cautious. At Miami Skin & Vein, Dr. Patel is committed to ensuring his patients feel as great as they look. All the treatments he uses have been thoroughly studied and personally vetted.
The FDA approved DAXXIFY in September 2022 after extensive clinical trials. Like other neuromodulators, this new injectable has an excellent safety profile. Side effects like headache or temporary eyelid ptosis are rare and comparable to BOTOX Cosmetic.
