Have you tried injectibles but wanted longer-lasting results? Dr. Durvi Patel provides Daxxify® (daxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm), an FDA-approved treatment powered by peptides that targets facial lines and wrinkles. Daxxify treatment in our Langhorne, PA office can lessen the appearance of frown lines that appear between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines. This injectable treatment can smooth frown lines, creating a more youthful look for patients with mild to moderate wrinkles.
Benefits of Daxxify Injectables
For some patients, Daxxify may last longer than other injectable treatments. Conventional injectable treatments may last three or more months. Daxiify can last six to even nine months. The Daxxify formulation uses peptides, or the amino acids that make up protein. Peptides are essentially smaller forms of protein and are found in many skin products to improve the appearance of wrinkles, reduce the appearance of pores, even out skin tone, and reduce inflammation. Because Daxxify is formulated with peptides, some patients can receive results that last up to two times longer than usual. This means less time in our office and more time enjoying results.
Daxxify is used most for the 11s or the lines between the eyebrows. After Daxxify is injected, it can soften frown lines created from repeated muscle movement. Daxxify is a unique treatment that uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer without human or animal byproducts. In addition, Daxxify is effective for patients with different skin types and ages.
How Does Daxxify Work?
Daxxify is a neuromodulator similar to other injectables like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Neuromodulators relax the muscles that create facial lines and wrinkles. Before your Daxxify treatment, avoid taking blood thinners, muscle relaxants, topical steroids, fish oils, Omega 3 oils, aspirin, sleep medications, and ibuprofen. Let us know which medications you take so we can help you prepare for treatment.
As with other injections, we will numb the targeted area so you will not feel any pain during treatment. Once we inject Daxxify into the muscles that create dynamic wrinkles, the botulinum toxin temporarily blocks the nerve signals to the muscles. The peptides attached to the neurotoxin will allow the muscles to absorb more of the active ingredient. Daxxify uses 40 units. While Botox uses 20 units, this does not mean that Daxxify has a higher dose. The amount of active ingredients is the same for Botox and Daxxify treatments; the units are different.
After treatment, you may see results within one to two days. Most patients may need to receive injectables three or four times a year. With Daxxify, you may only need to visit twice yearly to maintain your results.
