Botox® vs. Daxxify™: What’s the Difference?

Botox® and other neuromodulators are used avidly by people all over the world to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Daxxify™ is the newest arrival to the family, and it offers some unique benefits. Using safe, FDA-approved technology, Daxxify™ can provide wrinkle-smoothing results with results that outlast other brands. 

What is Daxxify™?

Daxxify™ is the newest member of the neuromodulator family. Approved by the FDA and available starting in 2023, Daxxify™ smooths lines and wrinkles for a more relaxed, youthful appearance. While you have several options for wrinkle-relaxing injectables, Daxxify™ brings some new benefits. Its formula lets it take action more quickly and maintain results longer.

How Does Daxxify™ Botulinum Toxin Work?

The wrinkle-smoothing effects of Daxxify™ come from its ability to quiet the communication between facial nerves and targeted muscles. Like other neuromodulators, Daxxify™ uses botulinum toxin to achieve its results. This compound reaches the facial nerves and stops them from sending signals to facial muscles. Your expert injector can smooth lines and wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet by targeting particular muscles. 

Botox® vs. Daxxify™: What’s the Difference?

While Daxxify™ and Botox® both use botulinum toxin to achieve their results, they have different formulas that affect their activity. Differences between Daxxify™ and Botox® include:

The Formula

Unlike Botox®, Daxxify™ uses peptide technology to stabilize the botulinum toxin. This makes Daxxify™ completely free of animal products. These peptides help Daxxify™ get to the targeted facial nerves. They also allow it to stay stable for a longer time. Botox® uses a compound called albumin to do the same job. 


Daxxify™ and Botox® are both extremely safe. Botulinum toxin has been used for over twenty years to treat medical conditions as well as lines and wrinkles. Side effects, which rarely occur, are usually mild and temporary. Like Botox®, Daxxify™ went through rigorous FDA testing to prove its safety. 

How Long They Take To Work

Most neuromodulator results take between three and seven days to become visible. Some people have reported seeing results with Daxxify™ faster than with Botox®. The peptide formula may help Daxxify™ reach your targeted nerves more quickly. 

How Long They Last

Daxxify™ differs significantly from Botox® in this area. While Botox® usually lasts three to four months, Daxxify™ can last six months or longer. Daxxify™ lasts longer because its unique peptide technology keeps it more stable in the body. Some people still had noticeable effects after nine months. 

What They Can Treat

Daxxify™ can treat most of the same areas as Botox®. These include horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet, and lines around the mouth. Neuromodulators excel at smoothing and relaxing these types of expression lines and wrinkles. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Daxxify™?

Good candidates for Daxxify™ want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. People who have never had neuromodulators before may wish to choose one with a shorter action to see how they like the results. Most healthy adults make good candidates for Daxxify™.
