Daxxify is the first FDA-approved long-lasting Neurotoxin. In clinical studies, patients had results that lasted 6-9 months. Traditional neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport lasted about 3-4 months.
Daxxify is a botulinum toxin type A similar to Botox and Dysport. What makes it unique is the stabilizing protein attached to it. In the past, Botox and Dysport only lasted about three to four months as the body broke the protein down, and it no longer had an effect. Thus patients needed to be re-treated every three to four months to maintain their results. Daxxify in Austin has a stabilizing protein that allows it to maintain its effect twice as long as traditional non-surgical neurotoxin treatments.

Daxxify, also known as daxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm is botulinum toxin type A, similar to Botox and Dysport. Thus, the key ingredient in Daxxify has been available for beauty treatment in Austin for over twenty years. The key ingredient in Daxxify that makes it unique is a proprietary stabilizing protein attached to the botulinum toxin type A protein. Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport also have these surrounding proteins; however, they have a different design than Daxxify.
Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin have been used extensively in the aesthetic world to help treat fine lines and wrinkles for over twenty years. Botox was the first Neurotoxin on the market, and subsequently, other neurotoxins have followed, secondary to the success and demand for Botox (which continues to grow). Each neurotoxin has unique properties and uses. However, the length of treatment has been the limiting factor in all the previous neurotoxins.
It has always been difficult for patients to return for treatment every three to four months to maintain the results of their Botox or Dysport treatment. Daxxify is the first neurotoxin to be FDA-approved to show sustainable results for 6-9 months. This evolution in neurotoxins will help the effects of Daxxify to be on par with your filler treatments, thus simplifying treatments for our business professionals in Austin.
Daxxify is unique in the duration of action for treating frown lines between the brows. The novel stabilizing protein that is attached to the neurotoxin is what gives it the unique property of longevity. Daxxify has a specialized synthetic protein that has been attached to the neurotoxin that helps stabilize the medication and thus increases the longevity of the Austin treatment.

How Long Does Daxxify Last?
The excitement about Daxxify has been the duration of action. Patients in the past have loved their Botox or Dysport treatments. However, they did not love that they typically only lasted about three to four months. Daxxify is the first FDA-approved long-lasting neurotoxin for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles between the brows.
In the clinical trials for Daxxify over 50% of patients had little to no return of their frown lines between their brows. In about 5% – 8% of patients this result lasted over nine months.
In general, most patients in Austin will be able to be treated twice a year and minimize the return of fine lines and wrinkles in the treated areas with the use of Daxxify.
Can I Treat the Same Areas with Daxxify as I Did with Botox?
Daxxify is a similar botulinum toxin type A such as Botox and Dysport. This will allow your provider in Austin to treat the same areas with Daxify that you previously had treated with Botox or Dysport. The goal is to achieve the same amazing results but have them last twice as long. There may be certain areas that your provider may choose to treat with a shorter-acting neurotoxin such as Botox, but they will walk you through that process.
Can I be Treated with Daxxify if I Have Already Been Treated with Botox in the Past?
The fact that Daxxify is a botulinum toxin type A similar to Botox and Dysport gives patients and plastic surgeons a lot of flexibility in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles.
Daxxify can be used seamlessly if you have received Botox or Dysport in the past. It can also be used in combination with Botox and Dysport in different areas as you may want to treat different areas of the body with different products. Your plastic surgeon can help guide you through your Daxxify treatment process, but yes patients who have had Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are candidates for Daxxify.
Can Daxxify Treatment be done in Combination with Other Facial Fillers?
Daxxify similar to other neurotoxins, is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by motion. It does not restore volume to the face.
Daxxify and other neurotoxins such as Botox typically give the best result when the entire facial subunit is treated as a whole. This will typically combine the use of facial fillers and neurotoxins in Austin such as Daxiffy and Botox.
