How Does Daxxify™ (Botulinum Toxin) Work?
FDA-approved in 2022 and arriving in 2023, Daxxify™ is the newest member of a family that also includes Botox® and Dysport®. All three act as neurotoxins, also known as neuromodulators. They use botulinum toxin, a compound that stops nerves from causing muscles to contract. Products made from botulinum toxin have been safely used for decades to reduce facial lines and wrinkles as well as for medical purposes.
Expression lines and wrinkles appear where facial muscles pull and crease the skin. These deepen over time, giving you horizontal lines across your forehead, vertical lines between your eyebrows, and crow’s feet around your eyes. Daxxify’s™ formula binds the botulinum molecule to game changing small peptides (instead of large bulky molecules in other neurotoxins). The Daxxify complex binds tightly and efficiently to the nerves for long lasting targeted results with no significant risk in side effects. With no communication from the nerves, the muscles relax, and the skin becomes smooth and wrinkle-free.
Am I a Good Candidate for Daxxify™?
Daxxify™ is FDA-approved to treat glabellar lines, the vertical lines between the brows, but may be used elsewhere. Good candidates for Daxxify™ want to smooth these frown lines for a more relaxed, youthful appearance. Most healthy adults can have Daxxify™. However, you may not be treated if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have certain neuromuscular conditions.
