Daxi®

DaxibotulinumtoxinA® is another prescription injection used by men and women to treat stubborn frown lines—between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and other fine lines on the forehead with proven longer lasting results than other competing brands!

DaxibotulinumtoxinA®, also commonly known as Daxi,  is a purified form of botulinum toxin that has been shown to deliver long-lasting improvement in moderate to severe frown lines by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity, temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines and reducing the appearance of movement lines. Daxi® is another excellent, non-surgical option that reduces the effects of aging and helps regain a more youthful appearance. It has results similar to that of Botox and Dysport with capabilities to be longer lasting.
At Wilmington Dermatology Center we are advocates of natural looking results. During a typical procedure, we evaluate which areas need to be treated based on your facial expressions and lines created. The area is cleaned and prepped with numbing cream if requested, and a small needle is then used at the injection sites. A visit typically lasts only 10 minutes long, and our patients easily tolerate the minor pinch sensation at the injection sites. Muscle control that creates your wrinkles begin to diminish in five to seven days, and full correction occurs in 14 days. There is no real downtime associated with a Daxi® treatment, although you may see slight redness at the injection site immediately after treatment that diminishes very quickly. The results of Daxi® (or competitive neurotoxin brands such as Botox or Dysport) can last anywhere from twenty-two to twenty-four weeks.
Daxi® and other brand name toxins are priced based on the number of units used on the individual, and how much you will require is based on the areas you need treated and overall severity of wrinkles. Our providers can give you a quote based on a free consultation. Some practices quote based on an overall area, but Wilmington Dermatology Center bases cost on what is actually used. There is no question you are getting the best value.

Daxi® recieved FDA-approval in Febraury of 2020 for long-lasting results as a neurotoxin for treatment to the frown line area.  With a goal of improved outcomes, and value-based pricing, Revance has elevated patient expereince throughout the aesthetic world.

How does Daxi® get rid of my wrinkles?

Does it really matter who does my DaxibotulinumtoxinA®?

  • Like all injectables, it is important that you used a highly trained specialist who is familiar with facial anatomy, advanced techniques and medical conditions that might prevent you from having the treatment. Bad Daxi treatments are common when patients go to individuals who are not experts in the field of medicine. These “practioners” commonly administer incorrect dosages and treat in the wrong areas, resulting in an undesirable and unnatural outcome.
