Introducing Daxxify, the revolutionary injectable treatment for frown lines that surpasses other cosmetic products in delivering long-lasting results. In the picturesque Hudson Valley, patients can now access Daxxify at select dermatology practices, including the esteemed office of Tania Cohen DMSc, PA-C, a renowned expert in facial rejuvenation and board-certified dermatology provider.
What is DAXXIFY?
Introducing Daxxify, a revolutionary injectable neuromodulator designed to combat glabellar lines, commonly known as frown lines or “11” lines. These lines form between the eyebrows due to repetitive muscle contractions. Whenever we furrow our brow or frown, specific facial muscles activate, causing the skin above to fold.
Over time, these vertical creases can become more pronounced, making glabellar lines visible even when we’re trying to maintain a neutral or happy expression. Many individuals seek treatment for frown lines because they’re tired of being perceived as constantly upset or angry. Additionally, these lines can contribute to an aged or fatigued appearance.
Since the FDA’s approval of Botox for cosmetic use more than twenty years ago, injectable products containing botulinum toxin type A, such as Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau, have been the go-to treatments for reducing frown lines. Daxxify, which received FDA approval in 2022 for treating moderate to severe wrinkles, also contains botulinum toxin type A as its active ingredient.
What sets Daxxify apart is its unique formulation. It is the only injectable neuromodulator that incorporates a peptide, providing a distinct advantage over traditional treatment options that typically require retreatment every three to four months to maintain results. With Daxxify, you can enjoy a more relaxed and youthful facial appearance for an extended period of six to nine months before considering retreatment.
Say goodbye to frown lines and hello to a rejuvenated you with Daxxify, the ultimate solution for long-lasting wrinkle reduction.
Ideal Candidates for Daxxify
Daxxify offers an effective solution for both men and women seeking to treat their frown lines. However, it is crucial for candidates to be in good health and have a clear understanding of the limitations and benefits of Daxxify. It is important to note that the results of Daxxify are temporary, necessitating additional injection sessions to maintain the desired outcome and prevent the reappearance or worsening of frown lines.
To determine if Daxxify is suitable for you, We will gather information about your current and past medical conditions, as well as any previous facial surgeries you may have undergone. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant, it is essential to inform your provider, as this can impact your eligibility and treatment plan.
We will also inquire about your experience with other injectable wrinkle relaxing treatments such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and/or Jeuveau. Patients who have developed resistance to Botox may find Daxxify to be a viable option. However, individuals with a known allergy to botulinum toxin products or those with a skin infection in the treatment area should not receive Daxxify injections.
How does Daxxify work?
Daxxify operates by temporarily disabling the treated facial muscles, effectively releasing and preventing the contractions responsible for frown lines. When a specific and minimal dose of the neurotoxin, botulinum toxin type A, is injected into an overactive muscle, it obstructs the nerve signals that trigger muscle contractions.
While Daxxify remains active within the muscle, it maintains a state of relaxation, resulting in smooth and flat skin between the eyebrows. However, after a few months, the effects of Daxxify will diminish. Without additional injections, the muscles will return to their normal function, causing the reappearance of frown lines.
Daxxify can be administered in various areas, including the full face (forehead, glabella, crows feet, masseter, and chin), the neck (platysma bands), calves, pressure points for headache/migraine relief
How long does it take to see results with Daxxify?
Experience the swift efficacy of Daxxify, surpassing other injectable neuromodulators that may require several days to manifest their effects. With Daxxify, certain individuals witness enhancements within a mere day of treatment, while the majority observe a remarkable reduction in frown lines within a mere two days. The complete transformation brought about by your Daxxify injections will be fully realized within a span of two weeks.
