DAXXIFY® Treatments in West Palm Beach, Florida

Discover the top choice for patients seeking non-surgical alternatives to plastic surgery: the revolutionary DAXXIFY® injectable. FDA-approved in September 2022 to smooth moderate to severe lines between the brows, this cutting-edge anti-wrinkle option is revolutionizing the rejuvenation industry. Developed by the renowned biotechnology company Revance Therapeutics Inc., it promises to deliver impressive results with minimal invasiveness.

Peptides help stabilize active ingredients. DAXXIFY® is a neuromodulator powered by a novel peptide. The only prescription frown line treatment made in the United States, it may last up to twice as long as other products. The active ingredient in DAXXIFY® is a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A.

DAXXIFY® Benefits

DAXXIFY® belongs to the injectable neuromodulator category, which encompasses BOTOX®, Dysport®, and others. Neuromodulators smooth facial wrinkles by interrupting the nerve-muscle signal, causing the muscle to relax. Injectables reduce the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles due to overactive facial muscles.

The high efficiency of DAXXIFY® appeals to patients and Board-certified plastic surgeons, due to its many benefits described below.

Powerful, Lasting Rejuvenation Effect

While neuromodulators work differently for every patient, most currently available injectable treatments like BOTOX® reduce wrinkles for about three months, requiring the patient to undergo a repeat procedure to preserve the effect.

The results of DAXXIFY® injections may last much longer. According to clinical studies, DAXXIFY® maintains its rejuvenating effect for four months in 80% of the users, for six months in 50% of the users, and up to nine months in some users. For many patients, DAXXIFY® could mean fewer trips to your Board-certified plastic surgeon — a  game-changer for busy people. Before DAXXIFY®, patients enjoyed the results of anti-wrinkle neuromodulators like BOTOX, but hoped for a longer-lasting BOTOX alternative.

In a study of 2,700 patients, 98% had minimal-to-no visible wrinkles on the part of the body that underwent DAXXIFY® treatment. Thus, there is a negligible chance of DAXXIFY® failing to treat frown lines and improving your appearance. Furthermore, because this new neuromodulator does not require refrigeration, there’s no danger of DAXXIFY® losing its potency if it gets warm.

DAXXIFY® Offers Safety

DAXXIFY® consists of peptides and does not include animal-based components or human products, thus minimizing the risk of allergies.

Clinical trials uncovered no significant side effects related to DAXXIFY® treatment, although a small percentage of users reported the most common side effects, including headaches, drooping eyelids, and slight temporary facial asymmetry, similar to BOTOX® and other neuromodulators.

Before becoming FDA-approved, DAXXIFY® had to work through some issues involving record-keeping and quality control, delaying its release. However, these primarily technical issues did not reflect on the product’s safety or efficiency.

DAXXIFY® May Have Other Uses Aside From Cosmetic Procedures

Many people know that BOTOX® and other neuromodulators are a rejuvenation treatment and an alternative to plastic surgery. However, neuromodulators may provide other benefits.

BOTOX®, for example, is an FDA-approved treatment for specific types of overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, excessive underarm sweating, chronic migraines, and more. Many authorities predict that in the future, DAXXIFY® could have indications in addition to being an anti-wrinkle treatment. Currently, Revance Therapeutics is investigating the effect of DAXXIFY® on cervical dystonia, a form of neck muscle spasms.

Other Benefits of DAXXIFY®

As an injectable neurotoxin, most people prefer DAXXIFY® for these additional benefits:

  • It's a quick, easy, and comfortable treatment, aided by a topical numbing cream
  • You can complete the entire DAXXIFY® treatment in less than an hour, which makes DAXXIFY® the perfect “lunch break” treatment
  • As a new BOTOX alternative, the anti-aging results of DAXXIFY® last twice as long as other neuromodulators
  • DAXXIFY® results do not require a recovery period or downtime
  • DAXXIFY® reduces the appearance minimally visible facial wrinkles, forehead lines, frown lines, bunny lines on the nose, vertical lip lines, crow's feet, depressed lip corners, and a pebble chin to reveal smoother skin

DAXXIFY® and Dynamic Wrinkles

While some facial lines and wrinkles result from skin laxity and sagging, there's another culprit: your facial muscles. These dynamic wrinkles emerge over time as you engage those muscles to eat, speak, and express yourself.  With the precise application of DAXXIFY®  to strategic areas of your face, we can temporarily stop the motion of targeted muscles to effectively diminish dynamic wrinkles and deter future development.

How Does DAXXIFY® Work?

DAXXIFY® contains a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A. Once injected, this new neuromodulator works beneath the skin's surface and temporarily reduces activity in the muscles you use to make facial expressions that cause lines and wrinkles.

DAXXIFY® and BOTOX®: What Is The Difference?

DAXXIFY® works similarly to BOTOX® injections. As neurotoxins used for the treatment of wrinkles on the face, DAXXIFY® and BOTOX® contain botulinum toxin type A as their active ingredient. However, their formulations and other ingredients differ.

The main difference between DAXXIFY® and BOTOX® is the longevity of results. DAXXIFY® results typically last 2-3 times longer than BOTOX® and other neurotoxins. With DAXXIFY, you can expect to remain wrinkle free 6-9 months, whereas the results of BOTOX® injections tend to last for 3-4 months. 

How Much Does DAXXIFY® Cost?

Cost can vary depending on your specific treatment plan. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we accept CareCredit® and other credit cards, cash, and checks to help you restore your natural radiance with this injectable neurotoxin. Our patient counselor can help determine the cost during your consultation. 

Is DAXXIFY® Better for Me Than Other Neuromodulators Like BOTOX®?

DAXXIFY® is a proven solution for reducing lines and wrinkles. This highly effective treatment is not exclusively for women, as more and more men are choosing neuromodulator treatments. Over a million men have already benefited from the transformative effects of botulinum toxin treatments. Whether you're in your 30s or beyond, age is not the determining factor when considering DAXXIFY®. The severity of your lines and wrinkles is what truly matters. With 64% of plastic surgeons reporting an increase in neuromodulator treatments for early 30s patients, it's clear that everyone's lines form differently. Factors like collagen production and sun damage play a significant role.

After your DAXXIFY® treatment, your results will be natural and subtle. No one will be able to tell, because you'll look like yourself—with noticeably smoother skin.

How Many Injections Do I Need and When Will I See the Effects of DAXXIFY®?

The DAXXIFY® injection treatment takes just five minutes at our West Palm Beach Office. Although you may see results the first day after your treatment, you'll notice the full effects of DAXXIFY® in 3-4 days, with results lasting up to 6-9 months

How many injections will you need? That depends on your desired results and the number of injection sites. The crow’s feet area will require injections in three areas of the muscle on both sides of your face, the frown line area requires five injections into the muscles between your brows and forehead, and the forehead lines area requires five injections into a muscle in your forehead. How many units it takes to achieve the desired results depends on the individual.

Our Faqs


If I am seeking to undergo a combination of procedures, will they be done together or consecutively? What is the timeline for multiple procedures?


The answer depends on multiple factors, including the specific combination of procedures, your recovery rates, your age and health status, and your behaviors or habits. More invasive surgeries typically require recovery time ranging between 6 and 12 weeks to 6 months, and surgeries to the same area of your body will also generally require recovery time between procedures.

However, if you are in good health and the combination of procedures in question will be performed on different parts of your body and are not especially invasive, a combination of procedures could potentially be approved together on a case-by-case basis. It is imperative that the combination of procedures does not compromise your healing, and your attention to prescribed pre-operation and recovery habits also plays a significant role. Schedule a consultation for an assessment and guidance regarding the procedures you are considering.


Will it be obvious that I “got work done” after my procedure?


While aging affects us all, there are steps we can take to put forth a more vibrant appearance. We seek to perform subtle adjustments to address imperfections and the wear of time while retaining your natural look. While you should notice an improvement, the glaring changes or distortions in appearance you are concerned about and may have seen from other surgeons’ work do not meet the standard of quality plastic and cosmetic surgery we perform in our office.

Dr. Frederic M. Barr is a board-certified Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience performing Plastic Surgery in South Florida. We enhance and refine your appearance according to your goals. Review our Gallery of Before & After Photos to see some examples of our work.


What does Breast Explant Surgery entail, and will my breasts be “back to normal” after the surgery?


For patients with Breast Implant Illness (BII), which can include allergy, auto-immune, and thyroid hormone issues, this has been an emerging topic with significant press coverage in recent years. Although numerous medical professionals have demonstrated varying responses to these women’s concerns, we believe in addressing these women’s experiences and symptoms. In response to this phenomenon, we have also chosen not to perform new breast implant surgeries. We perform Total Capsulectomy on patients with breast implants, which involves the removal of both the saline or silicone implant and the capsule around it.

Removal of the implants and surrounding scar tissue has been shown to improve women’s health concerning these symptoms. While some women choose no further procedure following Breast Explant Surgery, some patients elect to have a Mastopexy procedure that involves reshaping the breast tissue for a pleasant cosmetic breast appearance. We welcome your specific questions regarding these procedures and their anticipated effects for your situation. See our Breast Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) page for more detailed information, including before-and-after photo examples.


Are injectables safe, and are some safer than others? What are the dangers, and how can I avoid them?


We only utilize injectables and safe procedures for our patients, though any procedure involves some degree of risk. Proper performance and the surgeon's skills and experience performing the procedure are vital factors affecting patients’ safety. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, our surgeon is Board-Certified, with over 30 years of experience. We enforce a high standard to maintain safety for our clients and competitors. See our Injectable Procedures Overview for a list of injectable procedures and more information on each.
