DAXXIFY® in Orange County

Time, genetics, environmental toxins, gravity, and sun damage all affect your skin’s tone, texture, and elasticity. As you age, your body produces less collagen and elastin, the two protein molecules responsible for your skin’s tone and elasticity.

A loss of tone and elasticity, combined with genetic and environmental factors, increases the speed at which visible signs of aging are produced. DAXXIFY® in Orange County is an injectable option to help reduce wrinkles and frown lines, revealing a more youthful and vibrant facial expression that matches how you feel inside.

Dr. Lenore Sikorski of Natural Image OC has the skill and experience working with men and women seeking a procedure that can reveal a more youthful appearance.

What Is DAXXIFY® and How Can it Help?

DAXXIFY® is a BOTOX® Cosmetic alternative produced with a form of botulinum toxin called botulinum toxin type A. DAXXIFY is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines and glabella lines, which are the 11s that appear between your eyebrows.

These are dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that appear with muscle movement under the skin. DAXXIFY is an injectable neuromodulator that can also be used off-label for other facial lines.

DAXXIFY, sometimes shortened to Daxi, works by temporarily blocking acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that triggers facial muscle movement. Clinical studies have shown that DAXXIFY can improve frown lines for up to nine months, greater than the standard three to five months you experience with other neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport.

Additionally, those results continue at the maximum level for a longer period and reduce at a slower rate. DAXXIFY in Orange County is free of any animal-based additives, has been extensively studied, and is safe with minimal side effects.

FDA-Approved DAXXIFY® Is a Unique Neurotoxin

DAXXIFY® is a unique neuromodulator, different from Botox, which has become synonymous with neuromodulators. DAXXIFY represents a breakthrough in neuromodulators that produces better results.

Botulinum toxin A is the same active ingredient found in nearly all neuromodulators on the market. DAXXIFY differs in the addition of a synthetic peptide, which is positively charged and so is attracted to the acetylcholine receptor. This, in turn, inhibits muscle contraction.

You can think of this peptide as a bit of glue that helps the botulinum toxin A stay in place longer. This is one reason why DAXXIFY lasts longer than any of the other neuromodulators on the market.

In clinical studies, researchers have also noted that DAXXIFY results show up from one to two days after treatment, which is far faster than the seven days it can take Botox to create the same result.

Individuals who received DAXXIFY also commented that facial movements feel more natural than with other neurotoxins. These benefits come with a slightly higher price tag. However, if you need injections one to one and a half times per year instead of three to four, the final cost may be the same or slightly less.

Am I a Good Candidate for DAXXIFY®?

Individuals who are good candidates for DAXXIFY® in Orange County have dynamic facial wrinkles they would like addressed without an invasive surgical procedure. It is important to note that neuromodulators do not produce permanent results.

Additionally, the results of DAXXIFY cannot be reversed. If you do not like the outcome, you must wait for the effects of the drug to wear off. The ideal candidate has a limited volume loss or skin laxity where they want treatment.
