WHAT IS IT?
Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify are botulinum toxin products used to treat frown lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, the forehead and around the eyes. They also treats chin creases, horizontal neck lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
HOW IT WORKS
Botulinum toxin is a purified substance derived from bacteria. The injection of botulinum enables the muscle to relax by blocking nerve signals or chemicals that tell muscles to contract. The result is skin that appears smoother (and with less fine lines and wrinkles).
Results & Recovery
Results begin to be noticeable in a few days but can take up to two weeks for full effect. Results typically last 3-4 months.
Procedures generally last around 15 minutes, and no anesthesia is required. You can get back to your routine immediately. Restrictions after injection consist of withholding from excessive sweating for the remainder of the day. You will also need to avoid deep massage of the injected areas for three to four days. You can touch up your make up after treatment and continue your normal skin care routine.
It’s extremely rare to see a complication from Botox, Dysport or Daxxify that has been related to distant spread effect (affecting a distant muscle) when given at the proper dosages. If you have had a dropped brow with past injections, always mention that during your initial consultation. There are muscles that will be avoided for that not to happen.
If it's your first time considering injections, it can be reassuring to know the effect won't last longer than 3-4 months without re-injection.
The natural look
It’s not necessary to look frozen. There is a misconception that Botox, Dysport or Daxxify will create a frozen appearance. Correct dosing at the right times will result in a softened and refreshed look without looking overdone. There is no need to relax the muscles to the point of no movement. The purpose is to relax the muscle so its movement doesn’t create a wrinkle in motion, which can then turn into a wrinkle at rest.
How it's administered
Botox, Dysport & Daxxify are injceted with the tiniest of needles. Bruising is typically not an issue.
Botox, Dysport & Daxxify are often combined with other cosmetic skin procedures as part of a customized treatment plan. Chemical peels, dermal fillers, lasers or microneedling can further improve your results and help prevent new lines and wrinkles.
FACTS ABOUT NEUROMODULATORS
Botulinum toxin injections (e.g., Botox, Dysport, Daxxify) are the most commonly performed facial rejuvenation procedure in the U.S. In 2015, 6.7 million Botox procedures were performed, up 759 percent since 2000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
They have been found to treat true medical conditions (outside of facial wrinkles) such as spastic bladder, migraines and spasms of the eyelid. For most of us receiving Botox, Dysport or Daxxify for our wrinkles, the typical dose is 20-70 units, far less than what is given for therapeutic indications.
FACTS ABOUT DAXXIFY
Daxxify, the latest neuromodulator to hit the US market, offers patients the chance for longer lasting results, up to six months or longer. Botox and Dysport treatments typically last 3-4 months; however, Daxxify can have a quicker onset of action and provide the opportunity to only need treatments twice a year.
Daxxify has the same safety profile as other toxins on the market, it is the only vegan product on the market and the only one manufactured in the US. It is injected in the same manner as other toxins; but has a different formulation which makes it the more modern version of toxin treatments.
