What is DAXXIFY?

DAXXIFY is the newest injectable treatment for relaxing away frown lines (glabellar lines).

Using a purified form of Botulinum neurotoxin type A called DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm, DAXXIFY temporarily immobilizes muscles that contract to form these wrinkles. It is also delivered in a medium that does not use human serum albumin or any animal-based ingredients.

The effects of DAXXIFY are not permanent but are longer-lasting than other neuromodulators and have been known to last up to six months.

If you are looking for a new treatment that can help you achieve smooth, beautiful skin, then DAXXIFY may be right for you.

If you're considering injectable treatments, you may be wondering about the differences between DAXXIFY and BOTOX.

Both are purified forms of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. DAXXIFY, however, uses a special peptide ingredient that allows the product to be free of human serum albumin or animal-based components.

Both products temporarily immobilize the muscles that cause frown lines (glabellar lines). BOTOX is also approved for non-cosmetic applications such as migraines, overactive bladder, and excessive sweating.

The most significant benefit is that over its competitor, the results of DAXXIFY can last up to six months, twice as long as BOTOX.

What can DAXXIFY do?

Glabellar lines, also known as frown lines or “11 lines,” form between the eyebrows. They are the result of muscles contracting or furrowing, and over time, these muscle contractions can turn into wrinkles that appear even when giving a neutral expression. Some say these wrinkles can make your face appear serious or angry, even when you're not.

Our Grand Rapids DAXXIFY can give you the smoothed brow of your youth, melting away the years and leaving you with a happy, refreshed face.

Am I a candidate for DAXXIFY?

You may be a candidate for DAXXIFY if you are in good general health and are hoping to reduce the appearance of frown lines on the brow.

Ideal candidates:

  • Are ages 18 and up
  • Have no active infections
  • Have no history of keloid scarring

You may be disqualified for treatment if you have known allergies to botulinum toxin, have existing muscle weakness, or have thick or sensitive skin.

If you would like to find out if you'd be a good candidate for DAXXIFY Grand Rapids plastic surgeon, Dr. Bengtson, and his team of expert aesthetic professionals can address that and any other questions during a consultation. Call today to schedule!

Consultation and Preparation

Your consultation is the perfect time to ask all of your questions about the product and treatment.

Be sure to outline your aesthetic goals to help us formulate a custom treatment plan that is right for you. This is also the perfect time to discuss the risks and potential side effects of DAXXIFY. For the purpose of scheduling, disclose any upcoming large social engagements to ensure your skin has healed, and your results are maximized before your big event.

During your appointment, we will evaluate your skin type and condition and take photographs before and after comparison.

Before treatment, avoid excessive sun exposure, stop smoking at least two weeks before the procedure, and pause using any medications or supplements that may cause excessive bleeding or bruising.


On the day of your treatment, please arrive with skin free of makeup or moisturizers. Very fine needles are used with DAXXIFY, but prior to injection, our staff will cleanse your skin and apply a topical anesthetic or numbing cream to help minimize any discomfort. Injections are made in five sites across the brow, and the process itself lasts approximately 30 minutes. Following treatment, we recommend that you wait at least 15 minutes in our office to ensure no allergic reactions take place.


Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Expect to see a noticeable difference and improvement in your skin's appearance within one to two weeks following DAXXIFY injections. Results vary from person to person, but the clinical trials found that 80 percent of patients saw results lasting four months, with half of the participants reporting results lasting six months.

Depending on your skin's reaction, there is little to no downtime following DAXXIFY treatment. It is important to maintain a healthy skin regimen, including the use of high SPF sunscreen, and avoid sun exposure. Avoid rubbing or unnecessary pressure on the injection sites for at least 24 hours following treatment.

Should you have any pain or discomfort at the injection site, cold packs or over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen may be utilized.

What are the risks associated with DAXXIFY injections?

During the clinical trials, only 2% of patients reported ptosis of the eyelid, and 6% experienced headaches. Using neuromodulators may lead to muscle weakness, difficulties breathing, or other potential side effects, but it is important to note that none of these symptoms were found in study participants.

Is DAXXIFY permanent? How often should I schedule follow-up DAXXIFY treatments?

DAXXIFY is not a permanent solution, but the effects usually last four to six months. Should you desire to maintain your results, additional treatments must be scheduled.

Can I get DAXXIFY injections while pregnant or breastfeeding?

DAXXIFY injections are not recommended for anyone pregnant or breastfeeding.

Will I need to modify how I sleep following the procedure?

To avoid unnecessary pressure on the injection sites, it is recommended that you sleep on your back for the first 24 hours following treatment.

Will I need to have someone drive me home following DAXXIFY injections?

You should not need to have someone drive you home following the procedure.

How much does DAXXIFY cost?

The total cost of DAXXIFY depends on the severity of the issue and the number of treatments required. Design your custom treatment plan and discuss all costs during your consultation.
