Relax Frown Lines for Up to Nine Months in Madison, WI
Anyone looking for the beautiful results of a wrinkle relaxer with the extended duration of other cosmetic treatments can get the best of both worlds with Daxxify™, coming soon to Madison, WI’s Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center. The new injectable targets frown lines, keeping key muscles that cause the unwanted creases at rest for about six months—and even up to nine months for some patients.
The long-lasting effects make Daxxify™ an ideal option for anyone who wants a younger, refreshed, more rested appearance, but who also wants less maintenance. With minimal discomfort, no downtime needed, and half a year—or longer—of results, this treatment is a game-changer!
What Is Daxxify™?
Approved by the FDA in 2022, Daxxify™ belongs to a group of treatments known as neuromodulators, which prevent contraction-causing signals from arriving at certain muscles in the face. When injected into specific forehead muscles, the treatment keeps them at rest, so that they don’t cause furrows to form—even if you squint, scowl, or raise your eyebrows in surprise.
Daxxify™ is made by Revance®, a biotech company with more than 100 years of experience. The injectable contains no human or animal products, since it’s made with peptides.
What Should I Expect from a Daxxify™ Injection Session?
The Radiance Skin Therapy injectors are all well-versed in injectable cosmetic treatments—and particularly neuromodulators for relaxing frown lines and other facial wrinkles. Their focus is entirely on your safety, comfort, and beautiful results. You will have a consultation with your injector before any treatment begins, in order to make sure you’re getting the ideal plan for the results you want. Daxxify™ injections can be made the same day.
Patients tend to describe the actual injections as similar to someone briefly pinching their skin. In other words, it’s over and done with minimal discomfort. A single Daxxify™ session can take as little as 15 minutes, which means an appointment can easily fit into even busy schedules. Since the results last for so long, there’s no need to schedule another treatment session anytime soon.
What Happens After a Daxxify™ Treatment?
Expect some minor tenderness shortly after the injections, with the results beginning to appear over the next several days. Avoid excessive heat— such as from saunas, hot tubs, and steam rooms, as well as after intense exercise—for about 24 hours. The full results will develop over the next week or two, after which you can enjoy the compliments you get for looking so well-rested and refreshed over the next half a year!
What Other Wrinkle Treatments Are Available at Madison’s Radiance Skin Therapy?
Every person is different, so certain treatments will be more appropriate for certain patients. Other neuromodulators besides Daxxify™ offered at Radiance Skin Therapy include BOTOX®—the first injectable wrinkle relaxer approved by the FDA—as well as Dysport® and Jeuveau™.
Some facial lines can’t be “relaxed” away. These creases, such as nasolabial folds next to the mouth and nose, are best treated with fillers like JUVEDERM® or Restylane®. These injectables—and others, like Sculptra®—can also add volume to areas where hollows are forming on the face.
The overall goal is to give you the rested, more youthful appearance you’re looking for. Let us create a treatment plan for you today!
