DAXXIFY® & Other BOTOX® Alternatives

DAXXIFY, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® are neuromodulators similar to BOTOX that improve the signs of aging on your face and neck. Dynamic wrinkles caused by frequent muscle movement can give you a tired or anxious appearance, making you look older. We offer DAXXIFY, Dysport, and XEOMIN for our patients from Brighton, Irondequoit, Henrietta, and surrounding areas seeking effective facial rejuvenation.

How Is DAXXIFY Different From BOTOX?

Most significantly, DAXXIFY works faster than BOTOX and provides longer-lasting results. This difference is due to how the injectables are formulated—BOTOX contains a human albumin stabilizer, whereas DAXXIFY uses peptides for stabilization. This peptide stabilizer allows DAXXIFY to bind more effectively to nerve cells, causing it to work more quickly and last longer. 

Since DAXXIFY lasts about 6 months—compared to 3 to 4 months with BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN—it is an excellent option for patients seeking longevity from their injectable treatment. Because of DAXXIFY’s longevity, many people try BOTOX first to assess their results, then switch to DAXXIFY for their next maintenance treatment.

What Are Some Other Alternatives to DAXXIFY?

Dysport and XEOMIN are also injectables belonging to the class of drugs called neuromodulators. Like DAXXIFY, when strategically injected, they temporarily relax the tiny facial muscles that lead to facial lines like crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.

What Is Recovery Like?

Typically, most patients don’t need any downtime after their injectable treatment. You may experience some mild swelling and bruising at the injection site, but these symptoms should subside quickly.  

What To Avoid After Treatment

Refrain from rubbing or massaging the treated area after your treatment to avoid irritation. Postpone your workouts for at least 24 hours after treatment, and protect your skin with sunscreen when going outdoors.
