The Future of Long-Lasting Frown Line Treatment

At Richmond Plastic Surgeons, you can now experience the benefits of DAXXIFY® with the expertise of our highly trained specialists. Opting for DAXXIFY® at our facility ensures you receive safe, professional, and personalized care to achieve the best possible results. We strive to provide a comfortable and supportive environment, ensuring that your experience with us is as positive and fulfilling as the outcome. What’s more, we were one of (if not the first) practices in the Richmond area that offered this innovative injectable anti-aging solution.

What is DAXXIFY®?

DAXXIFY® is a popular treatment for glabellar lines, which are the wrinkles that form between the eyebrows from frowning, squinting, or other facial expressions. The main ingredient in DAXXIFY® is botulinum toxin type A, a neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for facial wrinkles and lines. It works by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that signals muscle contractions.

By reducing muscle activity, DAXXIFY® can smooth out wrinkles and prevent the formation of new ones, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. What makes DAXXIFY® unique is its use of a peptide in the formula. The peptide helps stabilize the active ingredient without relying on human blood products or animal byproducts. The peptide also enhances the attachment of the active ingredient, allowing more toxins to enter nerve cells.

DAXXIFY® Benefits

One critical benefit of DAXXIFY® is its longevity. It is known to last longer than other neuromodulators on the market, with effects potentially lasting up to 6-9 months. Results may be noticeable within a few days, with the full impact typically visible within two weeks after treatment.

In addition to its longevity, DAXXIFY® offers several other benefits, such as:

  • Natural-Looking Results: DAXXIFY® is known for providing natural-looking results, allowing individuals to maintain their facial expressions while reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This can help individuals achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance without looking overly "frozen" or unnatural.
  • Customizable Treatment: Our professionals can tailor treatment to each patient's specific needs and preferences. This allows for personalized treatment plans that address individual concerns and aesthetic goals.
  • Minimal Downtime: DAXXIFY® treatments typically involve minimal downtime, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities shortly after the procedure. This makes it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.
  • Safety Profile: DAXXIFY® has been extensively studied and has a proven safety profile when administered by qualified healthcare professionals. This provides patients with confidence in the treatment's safety and effectiveness.

Your Solution for BOTOX Immunity

If you've noticed that BOTOX injections are no longer as effective as they once were in smoothing out your wrinkles, you might be experiencing what's known as BOTOX immunity. 

BOTOX works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to targeted muscles, reducing their ability to contract and thus smoothing out wrinkles. However, with repeated use, some individuals may develop antibodies that neutralize the effects of BOTOX, resulting in reduced efficacy or shorter-lasting results.

Here are some reasons why DAXXIFY is an excellent option for BOTOX immunity:

  • The injectable utilizes a proprietary ingredient blend that targets wrinkles and fine lines from multiple angles. This means that even if your body has developed immunity to BOTOX, DAXXIFY can still deliver noticeable results.
  • Unlike BOTOX, which primarily addresses muscle contractions, DAXXIFY® also stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a key component of youthful skin, providing firmness and elasticity. By boosting collagen levels, DAXXIFY® helps restore a more youthful appearance.
  • While BOTOX immunity can lead to diminished results over time, DAXXIFY® Injectables are designed to maintain their effectiveness with continued use. This longevity can provide peace of mind and consistently improve your skin's appearance.

Aftercare Instructions

Immediately after treatment, avoid touching or massaging the treated areas to prevent spreading the product to unintended muscles. Other aftercare instructions include the following:

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours to minimize swelling and bruising
  • Stay out of direct sunlight and heat (e.g., sunbathing, hot tubs) for at least 72 hours or until any swelling and redness have resolved
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen when going outdoors
  • Remain hydrated and follow a healthy diet to promote healing

How does DAXXIFY® differ from BOTOX?

DAXXIFY® contains a unique formulation of botulinum toxin type A (daxibotulinumtoxinA-Ianm), which may offer distinct benefits compared to traditional BOTOX injections. It is designed to reduce wrinkles while potentially minimizing the risk of immunity that can develop with repeated BOTOX use.

Is DAXXIFY® safe?

Like all botulinum toxin injections, DAXXIFY® should be administered by a trained and licensed healthcare professional to ensure safety and efficacy. When used appropriately, DAXXIFY® is considered a safe treatment for reducing facial wrinkles.

How long does DAXXIFY® last?

The duration of DAXXIFY®'s effects can vary depending on factors such as the individual's metabolism and the treatment area. Generally, results can last between three to six months before a touch-up treatment may be needed.

Are there any side effects associated with DAXXIFY®?

Common side effects of DAXXIFY® injections may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These effects are typically mild and resolve independently within a few days.

Can DAXXIFY® be combined with other cosmetic treatments?

Yes, DAXXIFY® can be combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers, chemical peels, or laser therapy, to enhance overall facial rejuvenation. Your healthcare provider can recommend a customized treatment plan based on your goals.
