Botox | Daxxify

Botox | Daxxify in Northern Virginia with Dr. Erica Anderson

Fine lines and wrinkles are typically some of the earliest signs of aging; however, dynamic wrinkles are often caused by repetitive muscle movements like squinting, frowning, and pursing the lips.

Dynamic wrinkles can prominently appear between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), around the eyes (crow’s feet), on the forehead, and around the lips. Injectable neuromodulators like Botox® and Daxxify® can help relax fine lines and wrinkles to refresh and revitalize a more youthful-looking appearance.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Erica Anderson has specialized in breast, body contouring, and non-surgical procedures for over 20 years. With her new association at McLean Plastic Surgery, Dr. Anderson has established an inviting setting where she can continue helping her many patients successfully transform their figures and accomplish their aesthetic goals. By valuing honest communication and sincere connection with each patient, Dr. Anderson strives to create a positive experience where she can deliver the results you desire.

What Is Botox | Daxxify?

Neuromodulator treatments like Botox® and Daxxify® are minimally invasive injectables that diminish the signs of aging to create a smoother, refreshed, and more youthful-looking appearance. These injectables interrupt nerve signals to relax the muscles, strategically reducing muscle movements in those areas that cause dynamic wrinkles.

Dynamic wrinkles are one of the earliest signs of facial aging and are visible during facial movements; however, they can grow more pronounced and become visible without movements. As they are often formed by repetitive facial expressions and not just aging, even younger adults are turning to neuromodulators to reduce the appearance of dynamic lines before they set in. 

For patients experiencing moderate to severe wrinkles, FDA-approved Botox® and Daxxify® are quick and effective skin rejuvenation treatments that temporarily reduce the signs of aging to restore a refreshed, youthful-looking appearance.

Botox® and Daxxify® injectable treatments typically take 15 to 30 minutes and begin to deliver visible results in three to seven days, with full results visible within two weeks. Daxxify® and Botox® help to create a smoother, youthful-looking facial appearance by reducing the appearance of:

  • Eye area—crow’s feet
  • Glabellar lines—frown lines, or the 11s
  • Forehead lines
  • Neck bands
  • Perioral | Lip area

How Does Daxxify Differ from Botox?

Daxxify® (DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm) is the first peptide-powered injectable neuromodulator to receive FDA approval to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines). With similar effects to other neuromodulators like Botox®, Daxxify® sets itself apart by offering longer-lasting results. Other neuromodulators offer results that last between three to four months; Daxxify® delivers results that last up to six months, requiring fewer treatments to preserve your fresh, youthful appearance.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Botox | Daxxify?

Good candidates for Botox® and Daxxify® are patients who want a minimally invasive procedure to reduce the early signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and mouth.

Preparing for Your Botox | Daxxify Procedure

Whether you’re looking at a surgical or non-surgical treatment, it’s essential to be in good overall health. While Dr. Anderson tailors each neuromodulator treatment to your needs, here’s general information to help you get prepared.

  • It’s important to be selective when choosing your Botox® or Daxxify® injector as not all injectors are equally experienced. Board-certified Dr. Anderson has not only received extensive education in performing injectable procedures but has also taught her techniques.
  • If you currently smoke, vape, or use nicotine products, you should quit. Smoking is detrimental to your health and recovery from any plastic surgery procedure, so patients should stop smoking at least a week before and after Botox® or Daxxify® treatments. Smoking, vaping, or using nicotine products can affect the longevity of your Botox® and Daxxify® results.
  • Avoid medications, supplements, or vitamins that increase bleeding or bruising risks for three to six days before and after your Botox® or Daxxify® procedure.
  • Remain well-hydrated before and after your procedure and avoid alcohol or caffeine for three to six days as they can cause additional bleeding and bruising.
  • Come to your procedure appointment with clean, moisturized skin.
