DAXXIFY: The Before and After
Aesthetica badges

Embarking on a cosmetic treatment journey with DAXXIFY holds anticipation, and questions but most importantly a gratifying reveal. 

This guide aims to walk you through the ‘before and after’ of DAXXIFY, a relatively new but promising player in the world of neuromodulators. We’ll delve into what to expect before taking the plunge – from consultation to preparation – and then unveil the anticipated aftermath, showcasing the potential changes and effects. 

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran in cosmetic treatments or contemplating your first foray, understanding the full arc of the DAXXIFY experience can provide clarity and confidence in your decision!


DAXXIFY is a cutting-edge addition to the world of cosmetic injectables, gaining recognition for its efficacy in smoothing moderate to severe lines, particularly between the brows. 

This FDA-approved treatment utilizes a purified protein known as botulinum toxin type A, a well-known ingredient in the realm of neuromodulators. 

What makes DAXXIFY stand out is its impressive duration. It’s not just another quick-fix solution; on average, results last around 6 months, and for some individuals, the effects can extend up to 9 months. This longevity places DAXXIFY at the forefront for those seeking a more enduring solution to their frown lines.


What Sets It Apart?

DAXXIFY distinguishes itself in the cosmetic treatment market through its unique formulation. Unlike other frown line treatments like BOTOX or Dysport, which use human serum albumin (HSA), a blood product, as their stabilizer, or milk protein as a protectant, DAXXIFY adopts a vegan approach

It’s the only product in its category that uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer. This innovative choice makes DAXXIFY stand out, especially for those cautious about treatments containing human or animal byproducts. The peptide not only serves as a stabilizer but also contributes to the longer-lasting effects of the treatment, setting a new benchmark in the field of cosmetic injectables. 

This unique aspect of DAXXIFY positions it as an attractive option for individuals seeking a more natural formulation and longer-lasting results in managing their facial aesthetic concerns.


What Should You Do Before Your DAXXIFY Session?

Before embarking on your DAXXIFY treatment journey, it’s important to be well-prepared. Start by booking a consultation to discuss DAXXIFY and your aesthetic goals. This is a crucial step to ensure that your treatment is tailored to your specific needs. 

During the consultation, you’ll be informed about the typical frown line dose for DAXXIFY, which is 40 Units, and the amount of active ingredient involved, sitting at 0.18 nanograms, among others that may work better for you. It’s also an opportunity to understand the cost, starting at $8.50/Unit


What Happens During a DAXXIFY Treatment?

Prior to the session, avoid any medications or supplements that could increase bruising, like aspirin or fish oil, and stay hydrated.

During a DAXXIFY treatment, a qualified professional on our team at Aesthetica will administer the injection precisely where it’s needed. The procedure is relatively quick and straightforward. 

You’ll receive a series of small injections in the target area, which is typically the muscles responsible for frown lines between the eyebrows. 

The entire process is minimally invasive and usually completed within minutes, making it a convenient option even for those with busy schedules.

What Can You Expect Right After the Treatment?

Immediately following the DAXXIFY treatment, you may experience minor redness or swelling at the injection sites, but these effects are typically short-lived. Most people are able to resume their normal activities right away. However, it’s recommended to avoid strenuous activities and excessive heat exposure for the first 24 hours to minimize swelling and bruising.


Post-Treatment Care: Ensuring the Best Results

To ensure the best results from your DAXXIFY treatment, follow a few simple post-treatment care tips. 

Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for at least 24 hours. 

Stay upright and avoid bending over for a few hours post-treatment. Keeping the area clean and avoiding heavy makeup on the first day can also be beneficial.


What Are the Visible Changes After DAXXIFY Settles?

After DAXXIFY settles, which can take a few days to a week, you’ll begin to notice the visible changes. The frown lines between your brows will appear smoother and less pronounced, giving you a more relaxed and refreshed look. 

The results are natural-looking, allowing you to maintain facial expressions without the deep creases. The effects of DAXXIFY are long-lasting, with an average duration of 6 months and up to 9 months for some, making it a compelling choice for sustained aesthetic enhancement.

The safety and efficacy of DAXXIFY are well-established, backed by over 20 years of research, including the largest-ever phase 3 clinical trial conducted for a frown line treatment with more than 2,800 participants across various ages and skin types. This extensive study ensures that patients can feel confident and informed about their choice in DAXXIFY for their cosmetic needs.


Who Is the Ideal Candidate for DAXXIFY?

The ideal candidate for DAXXIFY is someone who seeks a long-lasting solution to moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. DAXXIFY is particularly suitable for individuals who:

Adults with Noticeable Frown Lines: The primary target group for DAXXIFY consists of adults who have developed noticeable and persistent frown lines. These are typically dynamic wrinkles that form from frequent muscle movements and become more pronounced over time.

Desire Long-Lasting Results: Ideal candidates are those looking for a more enduring solution compared to traditional neuromodulators. With DAXXIFY, the average duration of effect is about 6 months, and it can last up to 9 months for some, making it an attractive option for those who prefer fewer treatment sessions.

Have No Allergies to Botulinum Toxin Products: As with any treatment involving botulinum toxin, candidates should not have a history of allergic reactions to any botulinum toxin product.

Are Looking for a Non-Surgical Option: DAXXIFY is an excellent choice for individuals who wish to avoid surgery. It offers a non-invasive way to address frown lines with minimal downtime.

Seek a Treatment with a Strong Safety Profile: Candidates who value treatments with extensive research and proven safety records may find DAXXIFY appealing. Its safety and efficacy have been validated through more than 20 years of research, including a comprehensive phase 3 clinical trial.

Prefer a Treatment Without Animal or Human Byproducts: Those who are cautious about products containing animal or human byproducts will appreciate that DAXXIFY uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer, distinguishing it from other neuromodulators.

Have Realistic Expectations: Candidates need to have realistic expectations about the results. While DAXXIFY effectively reduces the appearance of frown lines, it works within the natural contours of the face to provide a refreshed look without drastically altering facial expressions.
