Daxxify or Botox: Which Is Right for Me?

Daxxify or Botox: Which Is Right for Me?

There are numerous products and treatment options available in cosmetic medicine. These developments have enabled people to combat early signs of aging for a more youthful appearance. One of the biggest concerns of men and women as they age is pesky lines and wrinkles that can make them appear older than they feel.

One popular and effective treatment to combat dynamic wrinkles includes products containing Botulinum Toxin Type A, such as Botox. Although these products can provide excellent results, the latest development of Daxxify provides a new option for anyone looking to eliminate unwanted lines. Read on to find out how Daxxify compares to Botox so you can make an informed decision regarding which one is right for you.

What Is Daxxify?

Daxxify is a neurotoxin similar to Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Each of these injectables is similar in that they work by "freezing" facial muscles to smooth away wrinkles. Daxxify, however, is different in that it lasts longer. Daxxify is FDA-approved and is the first in its class to last up to six months, unlike Botox and other competitors, which wear off after about three months. The duration benefits of Daxxify were established in phase 3 trials involving 2,700 patients and 4,200 treatments. According to the studies, a single injection significantly affected wrinkles.

How Do Daxxify and Botox Differ?

While Daxxify and Botox have certain similarities, there are also key distinctions to keep in mind.


Even though both products contain Botulinum toxin type A, their formulas and other ingredients differ. Daxxify employs a peptide, whereas Botox uses human albumin as a stabilizer.

Which Lasts Longer?

Daxxify is longer-lasting than Botox in terms of its effects. The effects of Botox usually remain visible for three to four months. Daxxify, on the other hand, can last up to six months.

Is Daxxify or Botox Right for Me?
