Though aging is inevitable, it is possible to lessen its visible effects. For those hoping to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkle lines, Revance Therapeutics has released Daxxify™, a new neuromodulator that utilizes peptide exchange technology to achieve longer-lasting results than other market alternatives. Though similar to other neuromodulators such as Botox®, Daxxify™ achieves more long-lasting results and contains no animal substances or human serum albumin, a protein in human blood.
What is Daxxify™?
Daxxify™, also called Daxi, is a neuromodulator that uses peptide exchange technology to deliver botulinum toxin to facial nerve cells. The botulinum toxin works by preventing nerves from sending signals to the muscles that contribute to the formation of facial wrinkles. Softening the contractions in facial muscles leads to the prevention of wrinkles over time while also working to reduce pre-existing wrinkles.
Though helpful in reducing all facial wrinkles, Daxxify™ is most effective in improving the appearance of forehead and frown wrinkles, crow’s feet, and banding effects on the neck.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, Dr. Tanzi and her staff provide the highest quality skin treatments to keep you looking your best. Dr. Tanzi’s commitment to excellence and innovation is reflected in Capital Laser and Skin Care’s embrace of new technologies, including the innovation behind the FDA approval of Daxxify™. Its long-lasting results make Daxxify™ one of the most promising neuromodulators on the market.
Besides the obvious benefits of increased longevity of the treatment, Daxxify™ uses an advanced peptide exchange technology. Rather than rely on human serum albumin, a protein in human blood, or alternative animal substances, Daxxify™ utilizes peptides to achieve the same results with longer-lasting effects. Additionally, the results of a Daxxify™ treatment will most likely be visible after just a couple of days, while other neuromodulators may take longer.
How Long Does Daxxify™ Last?
Unlike traditional neuromodulators that require treatments every three to four months to remain effective, results from Daxxify™ can be maintained with just one or two treatments per year. The median lasting effect is six months. In your consultation with the doctors at Capital Laser & Skin Care, our board-certified specialists will work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your desires that will keep you looking youthful for years to come.
