What is Daxxify® and How Does it Work?
Daxxify® is the latest injectable to be developed in the neuromodulator family of medicine. You may know one or more of the neuromodulators that have come before this one, brand names like BOTOX®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau®. We regularly administer BOTOX®and Dysport® in our office near Palm Springs, and now we’re pleased to bring Daxxify® to our patients! As a neuromodulator, Daxxify® works by temporarily paralyzing muscles that we target through superficial injections. As the FDA-approved drug gets absorbed into the muscle, it blocks nerve reception that causes the muscle to tighten. Without the persistent tension in the muscle, the skin can also relax, resulting in a smoother, wrinkle-free appearance.
How is Daxxify® Different from Other Neuromodulators like BOTOX®?
Why would yet another neuromodulator product be added to an already-impressive list of services? Similar to dermal fillers, it’s because each neuromodulator may have one small difference from other products. When looking at Daxxify®, the immediate difference that we see is that this neuromodulator is the first to be made using peptides rather than human or animal serum albumin as a stabilizing agent. The absence of human serum albumin, a necessary protein in BOTOX®, makes Daxxify® the first vegan neuromodulator to be developed. According to clinical studies, it seems that the use of peptides rather than protein can make Daxxify® a suitable alternative to other neuromodulators for patients who have built up antibodies to their usual treatment. It is not uncommon for the body to produce antibodies against the protein aspect of known neuromodulators. The antibodies aren’t dangerous, they simply break down the product more quickly, leading to short-lived results.
When Will I See the Results of My Daxxify® Injections?
In general, it can take up to two weeks for any neuromodulator to reach its fullest effect. That said, Daxxify® has shown the ability to achieve results faster than other neuromodulators. You may begin to notice that wrinkles are smoothing away within two days of receiving Daxxify® injections.
How Long Can the Results of Daxxify® Injections Last?
Daxxify® injections have shown impressively long-lasting results through thousands of clinical treatments. According to data collected for FDA approval, 98 percent of patients had no wrinkles or very little sign of wrinkles at a one-month follow-up. At six months, approximately half of the treated patients remained wrinkle-free. Some patients continued to show little signs of wrinkles at nine months.
