What is DAXXIFY™?
Made by Revance, the same company that produces the innovative RHA® Collection of fillers, DAXXIFY™ is a first-of-its-kind neuromodulator treatment that has received FDA-approval for the treatment of frown lines for an average of six months. It is formulated using a combination of botulinum toxin A—the same ingredient used in other popular neuromodulator treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic—and a novel peptide. This unique formulation allows DAXXIFY™ to treat dynamic wrinkles by temporarily preventing the underlying muscles from contracting. It is also the first formula of its kind to be free of both human and animal byproducts.
Our Seattle skincare experts offer DAXXIFY™ for patients interested in long-lasting, non-surgical frown line treatment.

What Concerns Can DAXXIFY™ Treat?
DAXXIFY™ is FDA-approved to help temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines. Frown lines—also known as glabellar lines, 11 lines, or worry lines—are the vertical lines that appear on the forehead between the eyebrows. They are considered a type of dynamic wrinkle, or the facial lines that develop as a result of repetitive muscle movements. While frown lines are typically not very noticeable in younger patients, as the muscles in the face and forehead continuously contract throughout our lives, they can become deeper and more prominent. After DAXXIFY™ treatment, many patients notice a lift to their brows and more facial symmetry.
How is DAXXIFY™ Treatment Performed?
As is the case with most injectables, DAXXIFY™ treatment is administered in-office by one of our skilled injectors. The entire process typically takes less than 30 minutes, and most patients report requiring little or no downtime afterwards. Our injectors use a very fine needle to administer DAXXIFY™, and the procedure itself is usually well-tolerated by most patients. As needed, we can provide a topical numbing agent to help further minimize any potential discomfort.
How Long Do the Results of DAXXIFY™ Last?
The results of DAXXIFY™ typically last for around six months, with some patients continuing to see wrinkle reduction for up to nine months. This makes it one of the longest-lasting dynamic wrinkle treatment options available, as most other neuromodulator treatments only last between three and four months. In order to optimally maintain your results, our team recommends scheduling touch-up DAXXIFY™ appointments every six months, or as needed.
