What Is Daxxify?
Daxxify is a botulinum toxin product FDA approved to help smooth moderate to severe lines between the brows. It is the only long-lasting frown line treatment powered by a peptide with results that last on average 6 months and up to 9 months for some.
The active ingredient in Daxxify is a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A.
Why does Daxxify have a peptide?
All frown line treatments require a special ingredient to stabilize botulinum toxin A, the protein responsible for helping smooth moderate to severe frown lines. For instance, BOTOX Cosmetic uses human serum albumin (HSA), a blood product, as its stabilizer. Dysport, another frown line treatment, uses cow’s milk protein in addition to HSA.
Daxxify is unique because it is the only formulation that uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer and does not contain human or animal byproducts.

What to Expect From the Procedure
Daxxify injections are typically performed with a small needle and people treated with frown line treatments say the injection feels like a pinch.
If you are concerned about discomfort, talk to your injector about options for minimizing pain, such as icing the area or applying a topical numbing cream. Treatment with Daxxify requires minimal downtime, and you can return to your daily routine immediately after your appointment.
There is a possibility that the area around the injection site will swell, turn red, and cause pain or tenderness from the injection itself; however, these side effects are typically very minor and go away after a few hours or days.
You may see results with Daxxify as early as the next day after treatment, and typically within two days.
