BOTOX® has become a household name in injectable wrinkle treatments and has decades of proven results behind it. However, several other injectable neuromodulators that work in a similar way have entered the market over the years, with the most recent addition being a BOTOX alternative called DAXXIFY®.
What Is DAXXIFY®?
Like BOTOX, DAXXIFY is a botulinum toxin injection that smooths away fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements and muscle contractions. Injectable neurotoxins like BOTOX and DAXXIFY use the same active ingredient — purified botulinum toxin type A — to temporarily inhibit those muscle contractions that cause expression lines, wrinkles and creases.
DAXXIFY vs. BOTOX: What’s the Difference?
While BOTOX and DAXXIFY use the same active ingredient, DAXXIFY is formulated slightly differently from BOTOX, giving it several unique advantages. DAXXIFY’s formulation attaches the active ingredient to a protein, which allows the product to last longer than competitors like BOTOX. DAXXIFY can last up to six months, while BOTOX generally lasts up to about four months. You can also expect to start seeing DAXXIFY results more quickly than BOTOX results.
Additionally, DAXXIFY uses a novel peptide to stabilize its formulation, making it the first injectable botulinum toxin not to contain human or animal byproducts.
Who’s a Good Candidate for DAXXIFY?
Anyone who is looking for longer-lasting anti-wrinkle results from injectable treatments could be a good candidate for DAXXIFY. In rare cases, some people develop BOTOX resistance, which diminishes its ability to produce the same results as it once did. In these instances, a BOTOX alternative like DAXXIFY could be appropriate.
