A neuromodulator called Daxxify works to reduce dynamic wrinkles. Muscle contractions that occur repeatedly in the same area give rise to dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles, for instance, can be caused by facial expressions like frowning or furrowing the brow, which can leave horizontal forehead lines or frown lines in between the eyebrows, as well as smiling, which can leave smile lines around the mouth and crow’s feet on the edges of the eyes. Dynamic wrinkles only appear when we are making those facial expressions when we are young, and they disappear when the face is at rest. Dynamic wrinkles, on the other hand, develop as we age and are etched into the skin, forming wrinkles even when the face is at rest. With the help of aesthetic treatments like Botox and, more recently, Daxxify, these telltale signs of the aging process can be reversed.

By injecting the neuromodulator daxibotulinumtoxina-lanm, Daxxify functions. This neuromodulator functions to block the nerve signal that instructs the muscle to contract when injected into the muscle responsible for dynamic wrinkles. As a result, the muscle is no longer contracted, smoothing out existing wrinkles and preventing the development of new ones. The Daxxify procedure’s temporary anti-wrinkle improvement can be seen for up to six months, making it the longest-lasting injectable neuromodulator on the market for aesthetics.
