As we age, wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear, which is caused by the skin getting thinner and the underlying muscles repeatedly contracting over time. Wrinkle relaxers temporarily weaken the underlying facial muscles to achieve a renewed, youthful-looking appearance. We are now providing DAXXIFY in Saratoga Springs, the groundbreaking, revolutionary new wrinkle relaxer that smooths away lines and wrinkles just as BOTOX does–but lasts two to three times longer.

What is DAXXIFY?

DAXXIFY is an injectable treatment FDA-approved to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles to form. DAXXIFY achieves a smooth, rejuvenated, and youthful-looking appearance. For older patients, DAXXIFY smooths away wrinkles and signs of age. For younger patients, DAXXIFY is used to prevent wrinkles from appearing, holding off the signs of age for years.

Like BOTOX and other wrinkle relaxers, DAXXIFY is formulated from a low, safe dose of botulinum toxin, a purified protein. DAXXIFY is unique in that it is made with cutting-edge Peptide Exchange Technology™. This technology makes the DAXXIFY formula more stable, leading to longer-lasting results. While other wrinkle relaxers fade after three to four months, DAXXIFY provides youthful-looking results for an outstanding six to nine months.

How does DAXXIFY work?

When we make facial expressions, our facial muscles contract. These contractions happen over and over, every day. As we squint, concentrate, raise our eyebrows, smile, and otherwise express our emotions, repeated muscle contractions begin to cause wrinkles in the skin. As our skin gets thinner with age, these wrinkles appear more prominently.

DAXXIFY and other wrinkle relaxers are formulated with botulinum toxin, a purified protein that works by blocking the signals from the nerves that cause the muscles to contract. DAXXIFY is carefully injected into the facial muscles that are responsible for causing wrinkles. This causes the muscles to relax temporarily. Only specific muscles are treated, which ensures you can still express your emotions freely and have a natural range of facial motion.

DAXXIFY is clinically proven to safely smooth the skin for older patients or keep wrinkles at bay for younger patients.

Preparing for your DAXXIFY treatment

You will need to stop taking blood-thinning medications such as aspirin several days before you have a DAXXIFY treatment. These medications (or supplements with the same qualities, such as vitamin E) can lead to bruising after your treatment.

Come to your DAXXIFY appointment without makeup or face products on, such as face cream or lotions. Arrive with a fresh, clean face.

What happens during a DAXXIFY treatment?

DAXXIFY is a short treatment that can be performed during your lunch break, allowing you to get right back to your usual day once it’s complete. Your injection treatment will take about 20 to 30 minutes. We will start by cleansing your face to remove any possible bacteria or dirt in the treatment areas. A very fine, thin needle is then used to inject DAXXIFY into the muscles in your face that are causing wrinkles to appear. Precision and artistry are used to ensure only the muscles in your face that are causing wrinkles are treated with DAXXIFY, leaving you a natural range of motion and expression.

Recovery after DAXXIFY injections

There is no downtime after DAXXIFY injections. Recovery is very mild, allowing you to return to work or to your daily routine and activities as soon as the treatment is over.

At the injection sites, there may be some redness or minor swelling. This will fade quickly within several hours or about a day. Other side effects are uncommon, but they could include a headache, flu-like symptoms, bruising, temporary facial drooping or weakness, and others.

For 1-3 days, do not massage the treatment area, stay out of the sun and extreme heat, do not exercise strenuously, and do not drink alcohol.
