Detroit Daxxify Specialists at Chau Plastic Surgery
Daxxify® (DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm), which is also known as Daxi, is an injectable neuromodulator that reduces the visibility of the lines between the eyebrows (i.e., frown lines, glabellar lines and 11s), around the eyes (crowsfeet), forehead and other areas on the face where fine lines and wrinkles form. These lines result from repeated muscle contractions. After the injector specialist administers DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm, it stops these muscle contractions, which leads to smoother skin in the treatment area. At Chau Plastic Surgery, physicians and injection specialists use their experience to target and then strategically administer Daxi to the muscles causing the wrinkles.
Detroit Daxxify Treatments Can Reduce Frown Lines
Frown lines result from repeated muscle contractions. The muscles located directly above the eyebrow, the triangular-shaped muscle that is located between the eyes, and the muscles near the inner eyebrow. Working together, these muscles pull the eyebrows inward and down. With time, these repeated contractions lead to the development of glabellar lines. However, Daxi can soften these frown lines.
How Does Daxxify Compare To Other Neuromodulators?
Although injectables for treating frown lines have been available for decades, almost 90% of people prefer rejuvenation treatment results that last. When compared to other neuromodulators (e.g., Botox® and Dysport®), the main benefit of DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm is its longevity.
According to clinical trials, 80% of the participants had frown lines that were minimally visible or completely diminished four months after treatment. Furthermore, after six months, nearly half of the participants still had minimal glabellar line visibility. This means that patients who choose Daxxify may be able to wait longer between treatment sessions than those who choose traditional neuromodulators.
Does Daxxify Have a Good Satisfaction Rate?
According to clinical studies, at the four-week mark, 96% of participants were happy with their results.
When Will the Patient See Results?
Most patients notice results within as little as two days; however, for some, it can take up to three weeks.
How Long Do Daxxify Results Last?
When compared to the results achieved with traditional neuromodulators, Daxi lasts up to twice as long.
How Frequent Are Daxxify Treatments in Detroit?
The treatment time frame varies depending on how long their results last. Some patients may not need to return for a follow-up treatment for up to four to six months.
Who Gives Daxxify Injections in Detroit?
This revolutionary neuromodulator is only available through properly licensed medical practitioners. Therefore, physicians and their expert injectors administer Daxi.
How Does Daxxify Work?
The peptide exchange technology (PXT) that Daxi contains allows for precise delivery of DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm to the nerve cells.
PXT refers to a short chain of amino acids that helps stabilize DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm, allowing it to anchor to its target, which enhances internalization and maximizes efficiency.
By inhibiting the ability of the nerves to trigger muscle contractions, the skin overlying the treated muscles becomes smoother. However, with time, this effect wears off, and patients need to return to Chau Plastic Surgery for another treatment session.
Daxi Is a Vegan-Friendly Product
PXT eliminates the need for human serum albumin, which is present in all the traditional neuromodulator products (e.g., Botox® and Xeomin®). Furthermore, the absence of human or animal byproducts makes DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm a vegan-friendly product.
Who Should Consider Daxxify Treatments in Detroit?
Treatments with DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm are suitable for people with any skin tone or color. Therefore, Daxi may be a good option for those who would like to rejuvenate their face by decreasing the visibility of the creases and wrinkles that develop between the eyebrows.
Who Should Avoid Daxxify Treatments in Detroit?
Individuals who have a known allergy to any product that contains botulinum toxin or the ingredients found in Daxi should refrain from having these injections. Furthermore, anyone with a skin infection at the injection site should postpone their DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm treatment until the infection subsides.
Preparing for a Daxxify Treatment in Detroit
Patients who receive a botulinum toxin product within four months of their scheduled Daxi treatment or at any point in the past must let their Chau Plastic Surgery doctor know. The doctor also needs to know when they received the treatment, as well as which product the injector specialist administered.
Before a Daxxify treatment, patients need to let their doctor know about any medical issues they have (e.g., hypertension, cardiac disease). In addition, patients must inform their doctor if they have experienced side effects following a treatment with any botulinum toxin product.
Patients also have to tell their doctor about any over-the-counter and prescription medications they take, including herbal supplements and vitamins. This is very important because some medicines, vitamins and herbal products can cause an individual to experience serious side effects following a Daxi treatment. Moreover, for safety’s sake, patients who receive DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm injections should not begin taking any new medications, vitamins or herbal supplements until they receive approval for those products from their physician.
Their Chau Plastic Surgery doctor needs to know if they have already had or plan to have facial surgery. Patients must also inform their physician if they are pregnant, breastfeeding, or plan to become pregnant or breastfeed at some point in the future.
Do Daxxify Treatments in Detroit Hurt?
To ensure the patient remains comfortable, the injector specialist can apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Without the addition of a topical anesthetic, patients state that they feel a pinching sensation followed by cold pressure.
What Happens During a Daxxify Treatment in Detroit?
After applying the topical anesthetic, an expert injector at Chau Plastic Surgery strategically targets the muscles responsible for creating the fine lines and wrinkles. The amount of DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm a patient receives depends on the number of areas treated and the patient’s desired results.
How Long Does a Daxi Treatment in Detroit Take?
DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm treatments take approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
The longest part of a Daxi treatment is the 20 minutes it takes for the topical anesthetic to take effect. The injections themselves take from five to 10 minutes per area. After completing the injection process, the injector monitors the patient for 15 minutes to ensure that he or she does not experience any negative reactions.
What Is the Daxxify Injection Recovery Process Like?
Daxi treatment sessions are stress-free procedures because there is no downtime following treatment. However, there are some steps that patients need to take to prevent complications and maximize their results. For at least four hours after treatment, patients must avoid lying down. During this time, they need to stay in an upright position and avoid bending over. They must also refrain from placing pressure on the injection sites for at least four hours following their treatment session. Patients who disregard these recommendations could cause the product to move, paralyzing other muscles.
If the Daxxify migrates into other areas on the face, patients may experience:
- Loss of strength and an overall feeling of muscle weakness.
- Double vision.
- Blurred vision.
Patients who experience any of the side effects listed above need to seek medical care right away.
Possible Side Effects Following a Treatment With Daxxify
There are very few side effects associated with a Daxi treatment. During the clinical trials, the main side effect was a headache. Nonetheless, this side effect only affected 6% of the participants.
Other potential side effects include:
- Temporary loss of muscle movement in the face.
- Eyelid drooping.
- Dry eye.
- Reduced blinking.
If DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm migrates away from the treatment area, other muscles can be affected.
What About Serious Side Effects?
As with any treatment, serious side effects are possible. Patients who experience any of the side effects listed below must seek medical treatment right away.
An allergic reaction can be a serious side effect. Signs to watch for include:
- A rash.
- Difficulty breathing or wheezing.
- Feeling dizzy or faint.
Serious side effects can include difficulty:
- Swallowing, which can remain for several months.
