8 Things to Know About The New Botox Alternative DAXXIFY

DAXXIFY is an exciting new alternative to Botox for wrinkles and frown lines. But, as one of the most recently introduced aesthetic injectables, many patients aren’t yet familiar with it. Read on to learn all about DAXXIFY in Tampa and how it can help you achieve a smoother, more youthful appearance. 

1. It’s a Neuromodulator. 

Like Botox and Dysport, DAXXIFY is a neuromodulator or neurotoxin. This means that it works by blocking signals from the brain that trigger facial muscle contractions, keeping the skin smooth. 

2. It’s Formulated with a Peptide, Not Human Blood Products.

Botox and other neuromodulators are made with human serum albumin. DAXXIFY is different because it uses a peptide to stabilize the active ingredient. This makes it an excellent, vegan alternative to Botox for patients who want to avoid human or animal-derived products. 

3. It Lasts Longer Than Botox. 

A key benefit of DAXXIFY is that it lasts significantly longer than Botox. Botox generally lasts three to four months, while DAXXIFY lasts six to nine months. In clinical studies, at least 50% of DAXXIFY patients had no or minor frown lines six months after receiving the treatment, while 5% to 17% of patients still had a noticeable improvement in frown lines nine months after treatment. 

4. It’s Highly Effective.

In clinical trials, 98% of patients had no or mild frown lines four weeks after receiving DAXXIFY. These results indicate that it’s a highly effective treatment for frown lines. 

5. It’s Formulated for Frown Lines. 

DAXXIFY is formulated specifically for frown lines. Over time, it may become FDA approved for other facial lines and medical purposes, like migraine. 

6. Side Effects are Minimal. 

Side effects from DAXXIFY are usually minimal. The most common side effects include headache and eyelid drooping. 

7. It’s FDA-Approved. 

The FDA approved DAXXIFY in September 2022 to treat moderate to severe frown lines. 

8. It’s Available Now. 

DAXXIFY became available in 2023, making it one of the latest aesthetic treatments to hit the scene.
