Daxxify in Princeton, NJ

Daxxify® is a groundbreaking injectable neuromodulator that lasts longer than its predecessors, including Botox® Cosmetic. It effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as an injectable treatment. With hardly any downtime, Daxxify is a safe way to treat common signs of aging with natural-looking results.

Dr. Brunner understands that pain and discomfort may deter patients from seeking desired cosmetic treatments. Fortunately, nerve blocking, a procedure that prevents pain signals from reaching the brain, allows patients to experience the transformative benefits of cosmetic procedures without discomfort. With over 25 years of experience in facial plastics and expertise in nerve blocking, Dr. Brunner can perform procedures at a leisurely pace for perfect, natural-looking results. Dr. Brunner’s nerve-blocking technique, along with topical numbing creams and Pro-Nox™, is a game-changer in aesthetics.

What Is Daxxify?

Daxxify is an FDA-approved injectable neuromodulator, which means it works by interfering with the nerve signals that cause muscle movement. When injected into a specific area, Daxxify temporarily paralyzes the muscle underneath. As the muscle relaxes, the skin on top softens. This technique effectively smooths fine lines and wrinkles.

Like other popular neuromodulators, Daxxify targets dynamic wrinkles, also called expression lines. Dynamic wrinkles tend to form around the forehead, eyebrows, and eyes. They can also develop on the nose, neck, and around the mouth.

What Is Daxxify?

Popular treatment areas and uses for Daxxify include:

  • Glabellar lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Horizontal neck bands
  • Masseter muscles for facial contouring and enlargement from clenching/grinding teeth
  • Lip flip

How Is Daxxify Different from Botox Cosmetic?

Daxxify lasts longer than Botox due to its unique formulation. Both products use stabilizers to harness their active ingredients. Daxxify’s stabilizer is a peptide, which allows it to bond to the nerve site for longer than Botox and comparable neuromodulators, such as Dysport® and Xeomin®.

Daxxify offers several popular benefits for men and women hoping to rejuvenate their appearance with minimal pain or downtime. Benefits include:

  • Greater longevity than other neuromodulators
  • Little to no downtime
  • Fewer touch-up treatments
  • Minimally invasive

Full results of Daxxify are visible about 5-7 days after treatment and can last for several months. Side effects include redness, swelling, or bruising immediately following treatment, but you’re less likely to experience adverse reactions by visiting an experienced injector and facial plastic surgeon, like Eugenie Brunner, MD, FACS.
