DAXXIFY is a new neurotoxin injectable treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
There is no downtime, no discomfort, and the results are a rejuvenated appearance that can last up to 4 months.
According to Dr. Khoobehi, a board-certified plastic surgeon, DAXXIFY is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A that has been specifically formulated to deliver precise and effective results. One of the benefits of DAXXIFY, according to Dr. Khoobehi, is that it is designed to deliver longer-lasting results compared to other neurotoxin injectables. He notes that clinical studies have shown that DAXXIFY can provide up to 6 months of wrinkle reduction with a single treatment. DAXXIFY is administered during an in-office appointment that typically lasts about 45 minutes.
Tiny doses of DAXXIFY are injected into the skin where wrinkles are noticeable. It is normally done in the doctor’s office and the procedure can last from 15 to 45 minutes. The number of injections and dose amounts administered varies by patient depending on the severity of wrinkles. This procedure does not create any discomfort other than a normal prick that comes with a small needle. A numbing cream may be applied to help with any discomfort. Patients will be able to go home right after treatment with no downtime from their normal routine.
What To Expect
On the day of the treatment, the healthcare professional will apply a topical numbing cream to the injection sites to minimize any discomfort. They will then use a very fine needle to inject small amounts of DAXXIFY into the targeted muscles, which typically takes only a few minutes to complete. After the treatment, you may experience some mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, but these symptoms typically resolve within a few hours to a few days. You should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated areas for at least 24 hours after the treatment and avoid strenuous exercise or exposure to heat or sunlight for the first 24-48 hours. You should start to see the effects of DAXXIFY within 3-5 days, with maximum results appearing within 1-2 weeks. The effects typically last for 3-6 months, after which you may choose to have another treatment session to maintain the results.
A syringe of DAXXIFY averages about $400. Depending on the patient’s case, a session may use 1 to 3 syringes, or more. Dr. Khoobehi is known for his expertise and personalized approach in administering Botox. He works closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals, ensuring that they achieve the best possible outcome.
How Safe Is It?
When administered properly, DAXXIFY rarely causes any complications. Too much of the product can cause an undesirable outcome. Dr. Khoobehi will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the facial muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. DAXXIFY is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today. It is safe and effective, and approved by the FDA. DAXXIFY is also used to treat other medical conditions such as squints, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
Are Fillers Better?
DAXXIFY and fillers are both popular cosmetic treatments with the ability to decrease wrinkles and smoothen facial areas. The difference with each is the way the substances function to create the rejuvenating effect. Injectable fillers add volume under the skin to fill hollow areas and decrease the appearance of wrinkles on the surface. DAXXIFY on the other hand, relaxes the muscles underneath the skin so that the muscles cannot contract, allowing a softer effect on the surface. It is very common for patients to undergo treatment using both a muscle relaxer and an injectable filler to attain optimal results.
