The Most Unique Toxin: DAXXIFY
What is Daxxify?
Daxxify is the newest injectable neurotoxin that can last up to 9 months. FDA-approved to smooth dynamic wrinkles and lines in the upper face, it can achieve a younger and more refreshed look with a simple injection session. Dynamic wrinkles are visible lines that form because of facial expressions which crease the skin over many years. Injectable neurotoxins remain the most effective way to soften the appearance of brow lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet with no downtime.
How Does Daxxify Work?
Daxxify is a neuromodulator, meaning it weakens activity in the facial muscles. By reducing muscular contractions, Daxxify can relax and prevent the formation of lines during expression. For example, it may be used to reduce activity in the muscles that cause you to lift your brows or frow them, causing lines to appear. Daxxify is not like dermal fillers which fill in lines and folds – however, Daxxify can be effectively combined with dermal fillers for a more comprehensive treatment plan.
How Do I Know if I Am a Good Candidate for Daxxify?
Daxxify can be an excellent option for patients who feel that their forehead lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet make them look aged or tired. If you’ve tried treatments with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin but your results did not last as long as you wanted, Daxxify may be an exciting new alternative, lasting 6-9 months. If you have certain chronic medical conditions, infections, or are pregnant, Daxxify should be avoided. When you schedule your consultation at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bachilo, will assess your health history to determine whether Daxxify fits your specific needs.
How Long Do Daxxify Results Last?
Daxxify is the longest-lasting injectable neurotoxin available. Daxxify is reported to last for around six months – almost three months longer than alternative products. With regular use, your results may last closer to nine months. During clinical studies, some patients have reported that Daxxify produced results slightly faster than Botox, with initial improvement becoming visible within 1-2 days versus 3-4.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for Daxxify to work?
Daxxify has been shown to produce initial results faster than alternatives like Botox. In fact, some patients begin to see positive changes within 1-2 days.
Why does Daxxify lasts longer than other neurotoxins?
Daxxify is unique from other neurotoxins because it contains no animal or human products and is instead manufactured with peptides and amino acids. This allows it to take effect sooner and last longer.
Is Daxxify a neurotoxin?
Yes. Daxxify is a neuromodulator similar to Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Neurotoxins are made with small amounts of botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein responsible for blocking muscle receptors.
How many units of Daxxify do I need?
Like other neurotoxins, the unit measurements of Daxxify will be specific to each patient. Dr. Bachilo will assess your unique facial structure and discuss your concerns to determine the appropriate amount to treat you with.
What are the side effects of Daxxify?
As with any injectable, it’s normal to have some redness and sensitivity at the injection site. We recommend avoiding blood-thinning medications before and after your treatment to reduce the chances of bruising.
