At Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, our team provides a wide range of services for adult men and women. Those looking for an anti-aging solution that doesn’t require surgery are excited to learn about solutions such as cosmetic injectables. One line of injectables, known as neuromodulators, is used to reduce muscle tension that creates wrinkles on the face. A newly FDA-approved treatment is that of DAXXIFY.
What is DAXXIFY?
Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine describes DAXXIFY as an injectable medication similar to Botox. It mainly treats dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face caused by muscle tension. The medication is formulated with botulinum toxin that reduces muscle contractions where injected. It addresses common dynamic wrinkles, including the lines between the eyebrows, lines along the forehead, and lines around the eyes sometimes referred to as “crow’s feet.” When these specific muscles are relaxed with DAXXIFY injections, patients can enjoy a youthful appearance like with Botox.
Is DAXXIFY a better Botox alternative?
DAXXIFY has been recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, or the FDA, for treating glabellar lines and forehead folds, using its ability to reduce muscle contractions and smoothen facial skin. Its most desirable characteristic is its ability to provide results for longer than other injectables on the market today. Botox is best for delivering results for a few months, while DAXXIFY has the ability to last up to six months in many patients. As can Botox, DAXXIFY can be used alongside dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm or RHA fillers to provide a dramatic “liquid facelift.”
What can I expect during my DAXXIFY appointment?
If you are interested in our cosmetic injectables, your first step is to connect with our team to request a consultation appointment. During this visit, we can assess your skin and discuss the issues you want to address. We will help you decide if you are a good fit for DAXXIFY or any other cosmetic injections available at our office.
If you choose to move forward with DAXXIFY, your skin will be cleansed, and we will inject the medication into the muscles of the face contributing to the dynamic wrinkles that are present. Patients can return to routine activities with minimal complications immediately after their visit. However, some side effects may be experienced, including itching, redness, or swelling at the injection site. These are often well-tolerated and resolve on their own over a few days.
