Everything you need to know about Daxxify

This new injectable is making major waves thanks to its impressive skin smoothing abilities and unmatched life span

Thanks to their ability to lessen lines and wrinkles, smooth the forehead, lift the eye area, contour the jawline, slim the nose, reduce sweat and even ward off migraines, muscle relaxing injections are more popular than ever.

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are all neuromodulators – meaning they block the chemical signals from nerves that are responsible for muscle contraction and until now they’ve been the go-to neurotoxins – but perhaps not for long.

Daxxify has officially entered the chat and the excitement is palpable – because this brand spanking new injectable can last twice as long as traditional neuromodulators and kicks in quicker too.

“Muscle relaxing injectables of old generally last around two to four months and take two weeks to take effect. Daxxify gets to work after just one day and lasts anywhere between six to nine months. It’s the first muscle relaxant ever to offer such an impressive timeline,” shares Dr. Divya Veluvolu.

Not only does it last longer, but it’s also formulated differently to all other muscle relaxants. Instead of using human serum albumin (a protein derived from human blood) to deliver the botulinum toxin to the nerve cells, Daxxify utilises peptides. And while human serum albumin has been used within the field of medicine for decades and is considered incredibly safe, the peptides in Daxxify are what makes this muscle relaxant go the distance.

“Although only FDA approved to treat glabellar lines, otherwise known as frown lines, it has excellent potential off label just like the other neuromodulators,” believes Veluvolu. Which means those of you who are die-hard muscle relaxing injectable fans can try Daxxify in all the areas you generally get treated, and rather than having up to four treatments a year you’ll likely only need two. “This is also great news for those who find that they metabolise traditional botulinum toxin injections well before their average life span,” adds Veluvolu.

However, for those who have never used a muscle relaxant before, the older tried and true brands are worth trying first. This is to ensure that you are happy with the results this form of treatment offers before you make a longer-term commitment with Daxxify.
