By now, many of us are familiar with the wrinkle-smoothing neurotoxin known as Botox®. However, a new challenger called Daxxify® has arrived and drawn a lot of attention. What makes Daxxify® different from other neurotoxins, and should you try it? At West Michigan Plastic Surgery, we can help you learn more.
What is Daxxify® (Botulinum Toxin)?
Daxxify® is an injectable treatment that uses botulinum toxin to relax facial muscles. When injected, Daxxify® targets expression lines and wrinkles caused by facial movements. It acts on the nerves that tell facial muscles to contract. When the muscle stops contracting, lines and wrinkles relax and become smoother.
Daxxify® is the newest member of this injectable wrinkle-smoothing family, debuting in early 2023. Anticipation has been high due to the advantages Daxxify® offers over similar products like Botox®.
