Perhaps you’re looking to treat frown lines for the very first time. Or, maybe you’ve already tried injectables for frown lines, but want a longer-lasting solution. In any case, the team at Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness is thrilled to introduce DAXXIFY, the latest frown line treatment to hit the scene. While it contains the same amount of active ingredients as traditional Botox, it features a peptide for longevity and stability.
Read on to learn more about this cutting-edge injectable and how it can help you tackle frown lines for good.
What is DAXXIFY?
DAXXIFY is an injectable treatment that’s FDA-approved to smooth frown lines, the vertical wrinkles that tend to develop between the eyebrows. It’s a neuromodulator, like Botox and Dysport, meaning that it blocks signals from the brain that prompt facial muscle contractions. This helps keep skin smooth and wrinkle-free.
What Makes DAXXIFY Different?
While DAXXIFY, Botox, and Dysport are all neuromodulators used to treat facial lines and wrinkles, each is a bit different. DAXXIFY is the newest option, and it’s formulated with a peptide to stabilize the active ingredient. This stands apart from conventional frown line treatments, which often use human blood products.
Peptides are strings of amino acids, often called the building blocks of proteins. With a novel peptide as a stabilizer, the effects of DAXXIFY may last up to twice as long as conventional frown line treatments for some patients.
For reference, conventional frown line treatments typically last for three to four months, while at least 50% of DAXXIFY patients in clinical studies had no or minor frown lines six months after receiving the injections. In these clinical studies, 5% to 17% of patients maintained noticeable improvement nine months after the treatment.
Is DAXXIFY Safe?
Although DAXXIFY is a new treatment for frown lines, it’s been thoroughly tested for safety and efficacy in clinical trials. In the trials, 98% of patients had no or mild frown lines four weeks after the treatment. No serious side effects occurred, and a small portion of patients experienced mild side effects.
