Wrinkles and fine lines are a natural part of the aging process, but they can become more noticeable over time, drawing attention in ways you might prefer they didn’t. While skincare products offer limited results, more advanced solutions exist for those seeking effective treatment.
At Wise Aesthetics in Carmel, IN, we are committed to providing a wide range of non-surgical aesthetic treatments, and we now offer Daxxify, an injectable frown line treatment that can provide targeted relief from these and other lines on your face. Daxxify is another neuromodulator that gives us even more options when it comes to non-invasive wrinkle treatments.
What Is Daxxify?
Daxxify is an injectable neuromodulator designed to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Made from a specialized stabilized protein, this treatment works by blocking nerve signals that cause muscle contractions. By inhibiting these signals, Daxxify injections essentially “pause” the muscle activity responsible for the formation of wrinkles, leading to smoother skin in the targeted areas.
What Is Daxxify Used For?
Daxxify is primarily FDA-approved for treating glabellar lines, commonly known as frown lines. These are the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows, often becoming more pronounced when you frown or concentrate. As a specialized frown line treatment, Daxxify effectively mitigates the muscle activity in this area, leading to a visibly smoother appearance.
Other Uses of Daxxify
We can use Daxxify for other uses, too, including:
- Smile Lines: Daxxify can also be used to treat the lines that appear around the mouth when smiling.
- Forehead Lines: This treatment can help in softening horizontal lines across the forehead.
- Lip Lines: Daxxify can be employed to minimize the fine lines appearing around the lips.
- Bunny Lines: Lines that appear on the sides of the nose, often noticeable when smiling or laughing, can be treated with this injectable.
- DAO: Daxxify can assist in diminishing the downward pull of the Depressor Anguli Oris muscle, located near the corners of the mouth.
- Dimpled Chin: This treatment can smooth out a dimpled or cobblestone appearance on the chin.
- Brow Lift: While not a substitute for surgical procedures, Daxxify can offer a subtle lift to the brows by relaxing the surrounding muscles.
Daxxify vs. Botox: What Are the Differences?
Daxxify is a neuromodulator that is similar to others that you may recognize such as Botox. It is made from the same active ingredient, and in many ways works similarly. However, Daxxify has been formulated with a special peptide that stabilizes Daxxify in a way that can potentially lengthen the results of the treatment. This stabilization has also made Daxxify easier to store and ship since it does not need refrigeration.
In some cases, Daxxify can also serve as a Botox alternative for those who have developed a tolerance for Botox and have found that it isn’t working as well as it used to. At our medspa, we offer a wide range of neuromodulators so that we can offer you a treatment that perfectly matches your situation and concerns.
The Benefits of Daxxify
One of the most compelling advantages of a Daxxify injection is its longevity. The effects can last up to twice as long compared to other neuromodulators. Many patients report a reduction in frown lines still visible after six months, with some even experiencing improvement at the nine-month mark.
Has a Special Peptide Formulation
Daxxify stands out due to its unique peptide formulation. This particular peptide, along with other proprietary ingredients, enhances the absorption of the neurotoxin into the neuron. This blocks the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. As a result, you get to experience a longer duration of smoother skin, reducing the time you spend living with wrinkles.
Does Not Contain Human or Animal Byproducts
Another noteworthy aspect of Daxxify treatment is its composition, which is free from human or animal byproducts. This makes it a preferable option for those concerned about the origin of the ingredients used in their treatments.
Made in the U.S.
Daxxify is manufactured right here in the United States, specifically in Silicon Valley. This assures you of stringent quality control measures that adhere to U.S. manufacturing standards.
Offers a Non-Invasive Treatment Experience
Like other neuromodulators, Daxxify offers a minimally invasive approach to treating wrinkles and fine lines. This means you can achieve the desired results without the downtime or complications associated with surgical interventions.
Offers Fast Results
Daxxify stands out for its speed of action. Most patients notice a visible improvement within several days after the treatment, making it a convenient option for those looking for swift, effective results.
Generally, the discomfort associated with a Daxxify treatment is minimal. The injections are done using fine needles to minimize pain. Some patients describe the sensation as a quick pinch. We also offer a topical anesthetic to make the experience as comfortable as possible. The process is relatively quick, often completed within a matter of minutes.
Achieving natural-looking Daxxify results is one of our primary objectives. The treatment is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without affecting your ability to make natural facial expressions. Our experienced team administers the treatment in a way that aims to provide a subtle yet effective improvement.
Determining whether you’re a good candidate for Daxxify involves a consultation with our team. Generally, if you are an adult in good overall health and have noticeable frown lines or wrinkles you wish to diminish, you may be a suitable candidate. However, certain medical conditions and medications may affect your eligibility for the treatment, which will be discussed during your consultation.
