Daxxify®: A Botox®-Like Injectable for Women & Men in Pasadena

There’s a new frown line treatment in Southern California. Comprehensive Dermatology of Pasadena now offers Daxxify, an advanced non-surgical treatment designed to provide Botox®-like benefits but with longer-lasting results. Also known as Daxi, this new injectable is the first peptide-powered, FDA-approved expression line treatment that lasts up to nine months. This great feature means as few as two annual Daxi sessions. You can enjoy year-long smoother skin compared to other neuromodulators that require more.

What is Daxxify®?

Daxxify is FDA-approved for addressing moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. These facial flaws form due to repeated muscle contractions and can result in a permanent scowl.

However, Comprehensive Dermatology of Pasadena can also use Daxxify off-label to treat dynamic wrinkles and fine lines in other areas. You may be an excellent Daxxify candidate depending on your medical history and aesthetic needs.

Comprehensive Dermatology of Pasadena uses our knowledge of the Daxxify clinical trials and experienced injectors to advise you if Daxi can be a suitable treatment for your cosmetic concerns. This knowledge ensures the safe administration of this innovative product.

How Is Daxxify Different From Botox®?

Since hitting the market two decades ago, Botox® has become a proven and effective injectable to soften facial wrinkles and lines. As the newest injectable neuromodulator to hit the market, Daxxify has already shown its strength as a top Botox® alternative. This groundbreaking injectable is available to almost anyone seeking a reliable, long-lasting anti-aging regimen.

What Makes Daxxify Different From Other Neurotoxins?

Daxxify is an injectable neurotoxin that is FDA-approved to treat glabellar lines with the same active ingredients as other injectable neuromodulators. It works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to targeted facial muscles. Once injected, Daxi softens expression lines caused by repetitive muscle movements.

The difference is that Daxxify attaches a protein to the toxin that temporarily blocks nerve signals, prolonging its impact. Clinical trials have shown Daxxify results could last up to nine months for some patients—that’s two to three times longer than its predecessors.

Daxi is the first injectable neuromodulator formulated with a peptide stabilizer and contains no human or animal byproducts. Therefore, it is the only vegan-suitable neurotoxin.

How Does Daxxify® Work?

Daxxify® relies on a specialized blend of ingredients, carefully selected for their ability to target the underlying causes of skin aging. The procedure involves the injection of a proprietary solution into the target areas, typically the forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines. This solution works by relaxing the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles and lines, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Unlike traditional Botox®, Daxxify®’s formula includes peptides and nutrients that promote collagen production and skin hydration. Collagen is a critical component of youthful skin, providing structure and elasticity. As we age, our natural collagen production decreases, leading to sagging and the formation of wrinkles. Daxxify® helps counteract this process, not only by relaxing muscles but also by stimulating collagen growth for longer-lasting results.

Daxxify® Benefits

  • Quick and Convenient: Daxxify® is a minimally invasive procedure, typically taking just a few minutes to complete. There’s no need for extended downtime, making it ideal for those with busy schedules.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Daxxify® provides a natural look, allowing you to maintain your facial expressions while smoothing out lines and wrinkles.
  • Long-Lasting Effects: Many patients experience results that last for several months, reducing the need for frequent touch-up treatments.
  • Collagen Boost: Daxxify®’s unique formulation stimulates collagen production, improving skin texture and elasticity over time.
  • Minimal Discomfort: During the procedure, most patients report only mild, temporary discomfort at the injection sites.
  • Personalized Treatment: Daxxify® can be tailored to your specific needs, ensuring you enjoy its desired benefits.

What Are Daxxify’s Pros And Cons?

Why Daxi Rather Than Other Neuromodulators?

Patients will enjoy Daxi’s longer-lasting effects, and fewer injection sessions make it a more suitable treatment to maintain continuous outcomes. Daxi may also be ideal for the tiny percentage of patients with Botox® resistance,  working as a procedure that helps where the effects of Botox®’s neurotoxin formula have diminished or become ineffective.

Disadvantages of  Daxxify Compared with Other Neurotoxins.

Because neurotoxin outcomes cannot be reversed, you should understand how each injectable can impact your appearance. With Daxxify offering longer-lasting results, it may be wise to employ shorter-lived options until you are pleased with the benefits of your anti-aging plan. Another disadvantage is that if you experience an unwanted outcome, like eyelid sagging, you must wait longer for its effect to fade. However, limited data from clinical trials found adverse side effects didn’t last substantially longer than those of Botox®. Choosing a board-certified dermatologist as your injector is critical for these reasons.

Is Daxxify® Right for You?

Daxxify® is an excellent option for women and men looking to address the early signs of aging or those who want to maintain their youthful appearance. It is suitable for a wide range of skin types and tones and multiple skin concerns, but the best way to know for sure whether Daxxify® is right for you is to talk to your Pasadena dermatologist. During your consultation at Comprehensive Dermatology Center of Pasadena, your specific goals and expectations will be discussed to determine if Daxxify® is the right choice for you.

The Procedure

1. Consultation: Your journey with Daxxify® begins with a consultation. You’ll discuss your goals, medical history, and concerns with one of our skilled dermatologists. This information helps us create a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

2. Treatment Day: On the day of the procedure, your certified injector will mark the injection sites and clean your skin thoroughly. Daxxify® is administered using fine needles, which is relatively quick and painless.

3. Results: You may start noticing improvements within a few days, with full results typically visible in about a week. Your skin will appear smoother, and you will notice a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.

4. Aftercare: There is minimal downtime associated with Daxxify®. You can usually return to your daily activities immediately after the treatment. Some mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites may occur, but this typically resolves quickly.

Maintaining Your Results

To maintain the fantastic results of Daxxify®, you may need periodic touch-up treatments. The longevity of your results can vary from person to person, but many enjoy the benefits for several months before requiring another session. We will work with you to develop a maintenance plan that suits your needs.

Safety and Side Effects

Daxxify® is considered safe when administered by our trained and qualified professionals. Side effects are generally mild and temporary, including slight swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites. These effects typically resolve within a few days.

As with any medical procedure, choosing a reputable provider with a track record of safety and patient satisfaction is essential. Always follow your practitioner’s post-treatment care instructions to minimize the risk of complications.

How Do I Find a Qualified Daxi Injector Near Me?

Because Daxxify is a new product, clinics and MedSpas have less experience using it. Therefore, vetting your provider is crucial. No matter the neuromodulator you choose for your treatment regimen, the best results depend on your injector’s knowledge of facial anatomy and how to control muscles by injecting proper product volume.

As with any aesthetic procedure, we strongly urge patients to choose a practice led by a board-certified dermatologist. This forward-thinking will help ensure the highest safety and care quality, with outstanding results to restore youthful skin appearance.

You will receive several small injections, but your Daxi session is short. You may feel a slight burning sensation during your injections but only for a few seconds. You can return to your daily activities right after receiving Daxi injections.

While you may have some minor redness, this usually resolves independently after an hour or two. The toxin takes effect over a few days, and your final results will be visible within a week to ten days. Daxxify outcomes can last between six and nine months. Most patients can achieve desired results with only two annual sessions to maintain wrinkle prevention and a youthful image.
