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:
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.
