Left unresolved, glabellar lines can lead to severe lines that make you look older than you are. Fortunately, here at Restore Center for Aesthetics in Munster, IN, you can address these wrinkles with the help of a neurotoxin called Daxxify.
What is Daxxify?
Daxxify, also known as daxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm, is an FDA-approved neurotoxin for wrinkle treatment. Specifically, it improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
It works by temporarily blocking the release of neurotransmitters which are responsible for muscle movements. Once injected into the treatment area, the dynamic wrinkles will be smoothed out and new ones will also be prevented from forming.
What sets Daxxify Apart from other neuromodulator injectables?
Compared to the 3-5 months results offered by approved neuromodulators like Botox and Xeomin, clinical studies show that Daxxify results, specifically the improvement in frown lines, can last anywhere from 6–9 months.
What Are the Benefits of Daxxify?
According to recent studies, Daxxify has a stabilizing peptide that provides longer-lasting results, showing advanced improvement in glabellar lines for at least 24 weeks following a single treatment.
Aside from frown lines, its off-label uses include the treatment of other wrinkles, such as:
- Forehead furrows
- Crow’s feet
- Bunny lines
- Platysmal bands
In addition, this neurotoxin can also be injected into masseter muscles to soften square and bulky jaws while reducing the grinding and clenching associated with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Daxxify?
Daxxify is a safe and effective neurotoxin that can address dynamic wrinkles. Hence, any adult with reasonably good health looking for more youthful skin is considered a viable candidate.
However, the best candidates are those who have:
- Limited volume loss or laxity in the treatment area;
- Bulkier muscles and deeper creases;
- More prominent glabellar lines; or
- Low-set brows.
Simply put, those considered poor candidates for forehead neurotoxin — whether due to very prominent lines or their brow positions — are ideal patients for Daxxify.
What to Expect During a Daxxify Treatment
Daxxify is a quick lunchtime procedure that is virtually pain-free and tolerable. It has been extensively studied and shown to be safe with minimal side effects.
You can expect the following during your Daxxify appointment:
- Your injector will evaluate and review your goals, concerns, and medical history.
- You will also be informed about Daxxify such as its ingredients, benefits, and other information about the neurotoxin.
- Your treatment provider will then take photos of your face while making various expressions as well as at rest.
- After that, your treatment plan will be discussed to ensure that you will get your desired goals.
- Once all the preliminary matters are settled, your injector will then cleanse your treatment area(s) and will inject Daxxify using a syringe.
The injections should take only a few minutes, where you’ll feel a slight pinch at most. It’s normal to see the treated area red and slightly raised after the treatment – these mild side effects should fade after an hour or two.
