Neurotoxin that works similar to the others but the science behind it allows it to last longer.
How does it work?
Daxxify works the same as other neuromodulators. It is absorbed by the nerve and blocks release of acetylcholine which is the neurotransmitter needed for muscle contraction. It is coated with a peptide which is positively charged and therefore has a high affinity to the cell membrane. This positive charge allows the Daxxify to enter the cell easily and a larger amount of the product can get into the cell. The more neurotoxin enters the cell the more effective it will be and the longer it will last.
How long does it last?
Studies have shown that this product can last up to 6 months and some instances even longer up to 9 months. Keep in mind that everyone is different but you can expect that at 4 months when your usual neurotoxin wears off this one may still have over 50% efficacy which means some result will still be present.
What is the difference between Botox and Daxxify
- It is a vegan product unlike other products that have albumin which is a protein found in blood of humans and animals this one has a synthetic peptide which is a chain of amino acids.
- It may last longer than other neurotoxins. Up to twice as long.
- Fast onset. It begins to work within 1-2 days. It will still take 2-3 weeks to see the full result but you can start to notice a difference within 48 hours.
What are the risks or side effects?
The side effect profile is similar to the other neurotoxins, ptosis, headache, bruising all between 0-2% risk.
How much does it cost?
Daxxify is generally priced about 50% higher than your average cost of neurotoxin treatment.
