JUVA is proud to announce its participation in the FDA trials for DAXXIFY. We are one of the first practices in the country to provide the treatment and are more experienced than most doctors due to our already treating over forty patients in those trials several years ago.

What is DAXXIFY?

Decreased collagen production, cellular changes, genetics, environmental damage, and sun damage all form facial lines. These lines are also formed by repeated muscle contractions such as frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows, causing the skin to furrow and fold.

DAXXIFY works below the surface to temporarily reduce underlying muscle activity for fewer lines and wrinkles. It’s FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows, with results that last six months for most and up to nine months for some.

The active ingredient in DAXXIFY is a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A, which has improved the look of moderate to severe frown lines for over 20 years. Similar injectables include:

While these wrinkle reducers all contain botulinum toxin type A, all frown line treatments require a unique ingredient to stabilize the protein. BOTOX Cosmetic uses human serum albumin (HSA) as its stabilizer, while Dysport uses HSA as a stabilizer and cow’s milk protein as a protectant. DAXXIFY is the only formulation with a novel peptide as a stabilizer and does not contain human or animal byproducts.

What happens during a DAXXIFY treatment?

During your injectable consultation, we will examine your skin and discuss your concerns to determine whether DAXXIFY is the best treatment. If you are concerned about discomfort, discuss options for minimizing pain, such as applying a topical numbing cream. 

After cleansing your face, we will inject DAXXIFY only into the significant muscles causing the wrinkles. Treatments last just five minutes and are nearly painless, feeling like a pinch. And because DAXXIFY requires minimal downtime, you can return to your daily routine immediately.

What are the benefits of DAXXIFY? 

The defining DAXXIFY benefit is its longevity, lasting longer than any other neuromodulator:

  • At least 50% of patients in clinical studies had no or minor frown lines six months after DAXXIFY treatment
  • Between 3% and 5% of patients in clinical studies had no or minor frown lines nine months after treatment
  • In other safety studies, 5% to 17% of patients still had noticeable improvement nine months later

Another significant benefit is that the safety and efficacy of DAXXIFY are well established. With more than 20 years of research featuring the largest ever phase 3 clinical trial program conducted for a frown line treatment, they studied more than 2,400 people across different ages and with varying types of skin. The study concluded that there were no notable differences in how DAXXIFY performed with varying skin types.

Other DAXXIFY benefits include:

  • Smooths crow’s feet, frown lines, and horizontal forehead lines
  • Can prevent future wrinkles from developing
  • Fast, convenient, and comfortable
  • Minimally-invasive in-office treatment
  • You may only need to visit once or twice a year to maintain the results you want

Am I a candidate for DAXXIFY?

DAXXIFY™ is an optimal treatment for patients wanting longer-lasting results that addresses facial wrinkles while improving the overall appearance. The most optimal candidates:

  • Want a more refreshed appearance
  • Have moderate to severe frown lines
  • Are eighteen or older and in good health
  • Have no rash, infection, or skin outbreak in the injection treatment area
  • Are not pregnant or nursing
  • Have no history of neuromuscular disease
  • Are not allergic to the components of DAXXIFY
  • Do not have a history of neuromuscular disorders or a neurological condition

DAXXIFY recovery and results

DAXXIFY requires no downtime and very minimal recovery. There is a possibility that the area around the injection site will temporarily:

  • Swell
  • Turn red
  • Cause pain or tenderness from the injection itself

After your treatment, you can go about your day and do your usual activities. However, you should avoid tanning and heavy exercise for a few days.

When performed by one of our professionally-trained experts, treatment with DAXXIFY will brighten the eyes while smoothing the skin. You may see these results as early as the next day after treatment, typically within two days. The most noticeable results appear within two weeks and can last up to nine months before requiring maintenance.


How is DAXXIFY different from BOTOX?

DAXXIFY and BOTOX are neuromodulators that relax the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles. However, DAXXIFY is the only long-lasting frown line treatment powered by a peptide and does not contain human or animal byproducts.

Does DAXXIFY have any side effects?

The most common side effects observed in DAXXIFY clinical trials occurred within one to two weeks after injection and lasted only a short while. These included injection site redness, pain, and swelling.

How much does DAXXIFY cost?

The cost depends on how much DAXXIFY you need to achieve your aesthetic goals and which areas are being treated. During your initial consultation, we will discuss approximate prices to prepare you.
