Daxxify: A New Alternative to Botox

By SL Aesthetic Clinic
Daxxify Treatment Singapore - Alternative to Botox

Botulinum toxin is a neuromodulator used to correct signs of ageing, such as wrinkles. While there are many brands of botulinum toxin including Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, it is commonly referred to as Botox.

New to join this list is Daxxify, the latest FDA-approved neuromodulator said to last twice as long as Botox. What is Daxxify, and what can it treat? Let’s find out more.

What is Daxxify?

Daxxify, also known as Daxibotulinum toxinA-lanm, is a peptide-powered injectable wrinkle treatment. It is FDA-approved for the treatment of frown lines.

Daxxify utilises a peptide to stabilise the active ingredient instead of relying on human or animal-derived products. The peptide formulation enhances efficacy while addressing concerns regarding potential allergens and ethical considerations associated with human and animal byproducts.

Where can Daxxify be injected, and what can it treat?

Daxxify is approved only for treatment of frown lines, which are the vertical lines between the eyebrows when making a frown. Daxxify is currently not available in Singapore.

How is Daxxify different from Botox?

While both work similarly to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily relaxing underlying muscles, Daxxify is approved only for treating frown lines.

Its formulation is also different from Botox’s formulation. In Daxxify, the toxin responsible for temporarily blocking muscle signals is bound to a protein, which contributes to prolonging its effects on treated muscles. Studies show that Daxxify results can last up to six months, which is longer than Botox’s average of three to four months.

Also, Daxxify is the first FDA-approved injectable neurotoxin formulated with a peptide as a stabiliser, unlike Botox, which requires a human-derived agent to stabilise it.

Using a stabilising peptide instead of human blood products provides a safer alternative and enhances efficacy. A formulation devoid of animal byproducts would also appeal to individuals seeking cruelty-free and ethically sourced treatments.

Are there any reported side effects of Daxxify?

Like any medical procedure, Daxxify has some potential side effects. While adverse reactions are rare, some people may experience pain, redness, or bruising at the injection site.

The most common side effects happen within one to two weeks after injection and last only a short while. This occurrence is consistent with other frown line treatments.

Can Daxxify be used for a Lip flip?

Currently, Daxxify is only recommended for the smoothing of frown lines. Botox would be a better option for a lip flip.

A lip flip involves injecting Botox into the upper lip to create the illusion of fuller lips by relaxing the muscles around the mouth. Individuals seeking a lip flip for fuller-looking lips should explore it under the guidance of a qualified practitioner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Daxxify for me?

Daxxify is for you if you want a fast-acting, long-lasting treatment for your frown lines. It is also ideal for you if you have ethical considerations and prefer a treatment with no animal byproduct.

How do I choose between Daxxify and Botox?

The treatment choice depends on your goals and preferences. While both treatments aim to reduce wrinkles and facial lines, Daxxify is approved explicitly as a frown line treatment. Botox is the traditional treatment method for relaxing wrinkles in various parts of the face.

If your goal is only to treat your frown lines, Daxxify could offer longer-lasting results due to its peptide-based formulation. We recommend you consult a qualified practitioner to help evaluate which option best fits your needs.

How long will Daxxify last?

Daxxify frown line treatment is expected to last six months but could last up to nine months for certain individuals.

Does Daxxify work on all skin types?

Daxxify was tested on 2800 individuals with varying skin types, and 96% were satisfied with the results.

What can I expect with Daxxify treatment? Is it painful?

Daxxify is typically performed with a small needle, and individuals who receive the frown line treatment say the injection feels like a pinch.

If you are concerned about discomfort, consult your treatment provider about options for minimising pain, such as applying a topical numbing cream. Treatment with Daxxify requires minimal downtime, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after your appointment.

It is also possible that the area around the injection site will swell, turn red, and feel tender. However, these side effects are minor and subside after a few days.
