by in Botox, Cosmetic Dermatology December 7, 2022

Have you heard of Daxxify yet? This new, FDA approved toxin is taking the cosmetic world by storm! Let’s look at Daxxify and how its different from other toxins on the market. Here’s what you need to about Daxxify in Northern Virginia!

What is Daxxify?

Daxxify is a new toxin, like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeauvea. The FDA recently approved Daxxify for smoothing facial wrinkles. Dermatologists are calling it the first major competitor to Botox.

Daxxify is a neuromodulator, like Botox. However, Botox and other neuromodulators only last around three months. What sets Daxxify apart is that it may keep wrinkles and lines at bay for even longer. In fact, clinical trials show that over 80% of people had no or minimally visible facial wrinkles after four months and approximately half still had little evidence of wrinkles at the six-month mark!

Daxxify Works Similarly to Botox

Essentially, neuromodulators freeze wrinkles by paralyzing the muscle underneath. This relaxes the tissue and creates a smoother appearance. The results are temporary, meaning they wear off over time. So, many people get multiple injections each year to maintain optimal results.

How Daxxify is Different

Firstly, the major advantage of Daxxify is its duration of effectiveness. While other neuromodulators report lasting between 3-5 months, Daxxify results last around six months. That means patients get longer lasting results, and fewer maintenance treatments each year.

Additionally, another difference is that while Botox and other neuromodulators are created from human serum albumin, Daxxify doesn’t contain any human or animal products. Daxxify contains peptides, or amino acids. These peptides may help Daxxify last longer.

Benefits of Daxxify in Northern Virginia

While the longer duration is an obvious benefit, some other benefits include:

  • Effective at treating wrinkles for 98% of patients in clinical trials
  • Little to no side effects
