for dynamic wrinkles, providing longer-lasting results.

Long-Lasting, Peptide-Powered Frown Line Treatment In Sarasota

DAXXIFY, an approved neuromodulator, by the FDA is utilized for treating lines or glabellar lines. This treatment, powered by peptides, delivers lasting outcomes.

The mechanism involves immobilizing the muscles beneath the injection site prompting them to unwind and diminishing wrinkle visibility for a calm look. DAXXIFY is noted to have a duration compared to neurotoxins like Botox potentially offering results that endure for 6-9 months making it a favored option, among those desiring prolonged efficacy.

What are the benefits of choosing DAXXIFY?

The benefits of DAXXIFY include:

  • Lasting longer than other neuromodulators.
  • Smoothing crow’s feet, frown lines, and horizontal forehead lines.
  • Fast, convenient, and comfortable treatment.
  • Minimally invasive in-office procedure.
  • Results can last between six to nine months in most patients.

What makes DAXXIFY® different?

DAXXIFY is an approved neuromodulator, by the FDA that utilizes peptide exchange technology in its formula setting it apart from neurotoxins that rely on botulinum toxin type A. This innovative technology allows for results to have a duration compared to options potentially lasting up to twice as long. Many patients have reported seeing their results persist for up to 6 months. The peptide exchange mechanism in DAXXIFY improves absorption. Leads to a secure bond with the neurotransmitter resulting in extended effects that typically last 50% longer than Botox. Apart from addressing lines between the eyebrows (frown lines or the 11’s) DAXXIFY is also effective, in common areas where neuromodulators are applied.

What is the recovery time after daxxify treatment?

The recovery period following treatment is brief allowing patients to resume their activities immediately after the procedure. However it is advisable to refrain from engaging in activity or lying down for at least four hours post treatment.

Some individuals may encounter side effects, like swelling, redness, discomfort or sensitivity at the injection site. These symptoms typically subside within a few days. It’s essential to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for a minimum of 24 hours following the injection and to steer clear of exercise and exposure to heat for at least 48 hours.

Look after yourself from within, and your beauty will shine through on your skin.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is DAXXIFY®?

DAXXIFY® is FDA approved to smooth moderate to severe lines between the brows. It is the only frown line treatment powered by a peptide.

The active ingredient in DAXXIFY® is a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A.

Will I need the same number of Units as my current frown line treatment?

In short, no, and here’s why. Units are like fingerprints—they are a proprietary measurement of a treatment’s unique potency.

Because of the differences in how treatments are formulated and tested, you cannot compare or convert Units between them, just like you cannot compare 2 fingerprints.

A clearer way to understand dosing is to look at how many nanograms of active ingredient (botulinum toxin type A) a product has.

Double the Units does not mean double the dose.


Approved frown line dose: 40 Units

Amount of active ingredient: 0.18 nanograms

Botox® Cosmetic

Approved frown line dose: 20 Units

Amount of active ingredient: 0.18 nanograms


Approved frown line dose: 50 units

Amount of active ingredient: 0.27 nanograms

As you can see, despite the number of Units, DAXXIFY® isn’t 2x the dose of Botox® Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport® isn’t 2.5x the dose of Botox® Cosmetic. Each product is unique. Talk to your provider about DAXXIFY® and your aesthetic goals.

Is DAXXIFY® safe?

DAXXIFY® was studied in the largest-ever clinical study for a frown line treatment and included more than 2,800 people across different ages and skin types. Here are some things you should know about DAXXIFY®:

  • There were no serious treatment-related side effects
  • The active ingredient in DAXXIFY® is botulinum toxin type A, an ingredient that has been used in frown line treatments for more than 20 years
  • 96% of people treated with DAXXIFY® were satisfied with their results.

Does DAXXIFY® work on all skin types?

The safety and efficacy of DAXXIFY® is well established, with more than 20 years of research. In fact, DAXXIFY® has been studied in the largest-ever phase 3 clinical trial conducted for a frown line treatment and included more than 2,800 people across different ages and with different skin types. DAXXIFY® was studied in patients with varying skin types.

How should I prepare for my DAXXIFY® treatment?

Ask our aesthetic provider for pre-treatment instructions prior to your DAXXIFY® appointment.

A list of common avoidances before treatment include, but are not limited to:

  • Retin-A
  • Blood thinners
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Fish or oils rich in omega 3
  • Allergy medication
  • Topical steroids
  • Sleep medications and supplements
  • Aspirin
  • St. John’s Wort
  • Supplements containing Vitamin E
  • Ibuprofen

What can I expect with DAXXIFY® treatment? Does it hurt?

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.

How often will I need to get DAXXIFY®?

If you’re like most people, you probably get a frown line treatment around twice a year. But here’s the thing: conventional treatments only last 3–4 months. If you are not able to get treated every 3-4 months, that means you may spend the next 2-3 months of the year with those frown lines staring back at you between treatments. That’s up to 4-6 months of total wear off time per year!

In clinical trials, at least 50% of patients showed results in frown lines at 6 months.

Will I see results quickly?

You may see results with DAXXIFY® as early as the next day after treatment, and typically within two days.
