DAXXIFY® is an injectable neuromodulator recently approved by the FDA. It works much like BOTOX® Cosmetic to eliminate frown lines. DAXXIFY® now joins more familiar brands, including Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and Jeuveau®, to prevent the muscle contractions responsible for “dynamic” wrinkles. While there are many similarities, this blog will review the differences between these neuromodulators.

5 Minute Read:

What Are the Longevity Results for DAXXIFY®, Dysport®, Jeuveau®,  and XEOMIN®?

You’ve heard about the fantastic results of neuromodulator treatments, but of course, you want your investment in yourself to last. If you’ve never received treatment with a neuromodulator, you may not know that different neurotoxins can last for varying amounts of time. 

  • Jeuveau® – Used strictly for cosmetic purposes, Jeuveau® is known to last between three and four months.
  • XEOMIN® – XEOMIN® results have been shown to last between three and six months.
  • Dysport® – Expect results to last about three to four months with Dysport®.
  • DAXXIFY® – The latest of these injectable treatments, DAXXIFY® can last six to nine months.

Every patient metabolizes neurotoxins at their own rate. Some patients may experience longer-lasting results, while others may require a repeat injectable session sooner to maintain their youthful look.

Cost of Jeuveau®, Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and DAXXIFY®

Dosages for these neuromodulators range from 20 units to 100 units, and while generally, the higher the dosage, the more expensive it is, this isn’t always the case. The price of cosmetic injectables can vary considerably; it all comes down to the specific formula used and the provider’s agreement with the supplier. 

  • Jeuveau® requires the most units, with each dose containing 100 units of botulinum toxin type A, but usually costs less than the others.
  • The dosage for Dysport® is higher than that of some neuromodulators but is often less expensive. The results can last up to six months.
  • DAXXIFY® is priced higher than its competitors but is also designed to last the longest.

Neuromodulators and Their Effectiveness on Specific Areas

Neuromodulators are not the same. Each option offers unique benefits and effectiveness for specific areas. The versatility of Dysport®, Jeuveau®, XEOMIN®, and DAXXIFY® are as follows:

Frown Lines (Glabella)

Dysport®, Jeuveau®, XEOMIN®, and DAXXIFY® can all treat frown lines, also known as “11” lines; these are the wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows. However, many doctors and professional injectors are turning to DAXXIFY® as they are impressed with its fast-acting and long-lasting results. If you’re brand new to neurotoxin cosmetic treatment and want to try a shorter-acting option, XEOMIN® provides results that last about three months, while DAXXIFY® can reduce, eliminate, or prevent frown lines for six months or more. Other neuromodulators typically last between four and five months.

Forehead Lines

While all cosmetic neuromodulators can treat forehead lines, the winners here are Dysport® and DAXXIFY®. Both of these options treat wider areas than other brands, with Dysport® lasting about four months and DAXXIFY® lasting six months.

Crow’s Feet

Dysport® is emerging as the best option for treating crow’s feet (the lines that develop at the outer edges of the eyes. 

If you desire treatment for frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet, you’ll need to decide if longer-lasting results in one area are worth using different brands and returning at various intervals or if you’d rather use one product for all three concerns and repeat your sessions at the same time. 

If you only want to address frown lines, you can base your decision on longevity and cost alone. Some patients even use these treatments as a preemptive measure to delay the development of dynamic lines. 

However, keep in mind that neuromodulators are not effective for wrinkles that develop over time due to age, sun exposure, and lifestyle habits. These are “static” wrinkles and are best treated with dermal fillers or facial surgery.

Other Advantages of DAXXIFY®

While DAXXIFY® has been hailed as a longer-lasting neuromodulator effective for treating frown lines, its appeal has widened as additional applications are being discovered due to more extensive use in a growing number of patients.

DAXXIFY® also offers faster results, which are visible in only two days compared to other brands, which can take up to a week for significant improvement to show.

How Long Can I Keep My Face Looking Young Without Surgery?

The duration for which men and women can use cosmetic injectables like dermal fillers and neuromodulators to maintain youthful facial skin varies based on several factors. First, the type of injectable used determines longevity. Poly-L-lactic and hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers typically last between 6–8 months, depending on the product and individual metabolism. Neuromodulators, such as DAXXIFY®, generally last around 3–4 months before requiring touch-ups.

The frequency of injection treatments also impacts the overall duration of effectiveness. Consistent maintenance sessions tend to prolong a youthful appearance, and individual skin characteristics, lifestyle choices, and aging influence how long the effects of injectables last.

Along with injectable treatments, regular skincare routines, healthy habits, and sun protection play significant roles in maintaining youthful skin. Consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon or experienced professional injector is crucial for you to receive a personalized treatment plan customized to your individual needs and goals. 

Overall, while cosmetic injectables offer effective solutions for preserving youthfulness, various factors influence their longevity, necessitating ongoing care and maintenance for optimal results.
