There's a new toxin at Seattle Beauty - welcome to the family, Daxxify! We strive to stay at the forefront of the latest and most effective aesthetic treatments. That's why we are excited to introduce Daxxify. With its longer-lasting results and robust efficacy, we believe Daxxify is an excellent addition to our portfolio of cosmetic injectables.
What is Daxxify?
Daxxify, also known as “Daxi,” is the newest wrinkle relaxer. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau®, Daxxify blocks the signals between muscles and nerves, allowing wrinkled skin to relax, even during facial expression. Like other wrinkle relaxers, Daxxify does not impact your ability to move your face but produces a more youthful appearance when facial expressions are made.
What Makes Daxxify Different?
Most wrinkle relaxers produce results from three to four months. This means that continued results require up to four treatments per year. Daxxify can deliver results for six to nine months, making it the longest-lasting wrinkle relaxer on the market.
Not only is it longer lasting, but clinical trials have also shown Daxxify to be particularly robust, making it an outstanding solution for individuals with deeper lines and wrinkles. Moreover, patients who have received injections for frown lines reported a reduction in forehead creases and improvement in eyebrow position, which may allow Daxxify to treat a greater range of issues with fewer injections.
Daxxify contains a stabilizing peptide that allows it to bind more effectively to nerve cell membranes. This helps to extend results and removes the need for animal-derived stabilizing proteins, making it a suitable treatment for vegetarians and vegans.
Is Daxxify Safe?
Daxxify was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in September 2022 and is considered safe for most. However, people with an allergy to any of its ingredients should avoid use.
The most common serious side effects in clinical trials were headache, appearing in six percent of patients; eyelid ptosis (sagging), occurring in two percent of patients; and facial asymmetry, appearing in one percent of patients. These risks self-correct with time and are similar to Botox and Xeomin.
Also similar to other wrinkle relaxers, the most common side effects of Daxxify are redness, bruising, and slight discomfort at the injection site. As with more serious risks, these tend to self-correct and should not cause lasting issues.
Daxxify does not require any downtime. You can resume all of your normal activities immediately after treatment.
How Long Until I See Results?
Most patients report results within one to two days, with full results visible within a month. In studies, 98 percent of patients reported optimal results within four weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate for Daxxify?
You may be the ideal Daxxify candidate if you have deep lines or wrinkles on your face but still have good skin elasticity. The best candidates are in generally good health, realistic with their expectations, and willing to take care of their skin following treatment to help amplify and extend results. The best way to learn if you are a good candidate is through a one-on-one consultation with a qualified Daxxify provider.
Are There Any Risks with Daxxify?
Although Daxxify is FDA-approved, just like any other cosmetic procedure, it can still come with a few side effects and risks that patients should be aware of before committing to an appointment.
Some common side effects that patients may experience following their treatment include the following:
- Drooping eyelids
- Temporary facial numbness
These side effects are normal to experience after your appointment, and they usually subside within one to two days of your treatment.
Some risks that patients may experience following their treatment include the following:
- Swelling on the face
- Allergic reaction to the materials used in Daxxify
- Shortness of breath
At Seattle Beauty, we understand how important it can be to feel comfortable and confident in your skin. That’s why Dr. Desiree Wood and Dr. Keri Brown provide precise, high-quality treatments to their patients. Under their care, the chances of risks from your Daxxify treatment are minimized, and as long as their aftercare guidelines are followed during your recovery period, these side effects can easily be managed.
What Is the Recovery Process from Daxxify Like?
Daxxify appointments are typically very quick, and this treatment usually involves no downtime at all. Though you may experience slight swelling immediately after your appointment, most patients are able to return to their work day or normal routine after their treatment has been completed.
In your first three to five days of recovery, however, it is important to treat your affected areas with gentleness and care. This can mean avoiding facial massages, tight hats, and waxing or plucking facial hair. Treating your skin gently will lead to optimal results and avoid complications while your skin adjusts to the Daxxify injections.
How Long Will My Daxxify Results Last?
Compared to other injectable treatments such as BOTOX®, Daxxify has been designed to last about twice as long. The results from your first Daxxify treatment can last between six to nine months. After this period is over, patients may need to schedule a follow-up appointment to maintain their desired look. Many patients enjoy using Daxxify as it typically means booking only a few appointments yearly, compared to injectables and fillers that may only last three to four months.
What Are the Benefits of Daxxify?
Daxxify was designed to target fine lines and wrinkles. This allows patients whose number one skin concern is fine lines and wrinkles to undergo a non-invasive, quick, and easy procedure that specifically targets these issues. Because other skin rejuvenating injectables or fillers may be used on the rest of the face and can address a number of issues, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can be best reduced with Daxxify.
Not only will patients be able to get rid of early signs of aging, but they’ll leave their appointments with a more radiant, younger-looking complexion. This often leads patients to increased self-confidence and happiness. At Seattle Beauty, we are happy to help patients achieve their skin aesthetic goals.
