DAXI – The NEW Botox Alternative
Have you heard of DAXI, the new Botox alternative? If so, you’re probably wondering how it stacks up against traditional Botox. So, let’s look at Daxxify.
Daxxify, an injectable neurotoxin, uses the same class of active ingredient as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau The FDA recently approved Daxxify, which was created by Revance Aesthetics. It gained FDA approval in September 2022. Since then, it has become quite popular. Daxxify is approved for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines, also know as glabella lines or the lines between the eyebrows.
How it Works
Like Botox, Daxxify works by blocking nerve signals to treated muscles. It works as an acetylcholine release inhibitor and neuromuscular blocking agent. However, Daxxify is the first and only peptide formulated, long-acting neuromodulator FDA approved for this use. This new peptide formulation means it does not contain any human or animal byproducts.
What Makes DAXI Different?
Daxxify is every bit as safe and effective as Botox. What sets it apart is that it lasts 2-3 times longer than other neuromodulators. In fact, clinical data has shown that Daxxify injections can last between 6-9 months. The average length of Daxxify’s effect on wrinkle improvement was 6 months. When compared to other neuromodulator which only last 3-4 months, this is significant. Patients could go from having treatment every three months to only twice a year!
Advantages of DAXI – The New Botox Alternative
The main advantage of Daxxify is the longer lasting effects and the time savings patients will experience from needing fewer injection appoi9ntments. Additionally, Daxxify is a great solution for the small percentage of patients who have developed a resistance to Botox. This resistance diminishes the effects of Botox, but Daxxify may be able to offer better results.
