What Is Daxxify?

Daxxify is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable treatment used to smooth the glabellar lines between the eyebrows. Although Daxxify is similar to products like Botox and Dysport, it is a more specialized treatment and helps patients achieve longer-lasting youthful skin.

How Does Daxxify Work?

Daxxify’s active ingredient is a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A, the same active ingredient found in Botox. When this neurotoxin is injected into the facial muscles, it blocks their communication with the nerves, which prevents the muscles from contracting. As a result, the facial skin becomes significantly smoother.

Daxxify is formulated with innovative peptide exchange technology and contains no human or animal by-products. As a result, the active component of the botulinum toxin can adhere better to the receptor, which allows the treatment’s effects to last quite a bit longer than with other similar injectables

    Benefits of Daxxify

    For anyone dealing with frown lines, Daxxify has been shown to offer the following benefits:

    • Greatly reduced glabellar lines
    • More youthful-looking facial skin
    • Improved self-confidence
    • Long-lasting results
    • Quick, simple treatment

    What Should I Expect During the Treatment?

    If you think Daxxify is the right treatment, the first step will be a quick consultation with one of our specialists at HK Plastic Surgery & MedSpa. We will ask you about your aesthetic goals and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that will achieve the results you’re looking for.

    The Daxxify treatment will be performed as an outpatient procedure and shouldn’t take 15 to 30 minutes to complete. First, your injection specialist will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Then, using a fine needle, they inject the Daxxify into the skin around the glabellar lines you want to eliminate. Once this is finished, you can leave the office and resume your daily activities immediately.

    How Long Is the Recovery Time?

    Daxxify treatment requires no real recovery downtime. You will need to avoid rubbing or scratching the injection sites, but you should be able to return to your normal routine while your facial skin heals.

    How Long Will It Take To See Results After Daxxify?

    Most patients start to see results from Daxxify within one or two days of the treatment. The positive effects will become more apparent as the swelling and bruising subside. The results of Daxxify typically last at least six months and can last as long as nine months.

    Are There Any Side Effects?

    Although Daxxify can cause certain side effects, most of them are minor. In very rare cases, the neurotoxin in Daxxify can spread to other parts of the body, which can result in botulism.

    The most common side effects of the treatment include:

    • Headaches
    • Swelling
    • Injection site pain, itching, or redness
    • Bruising
    • Droopy eyelids
