What is DAXXIFY®?
DAXXIFY® is FDA-approved to smooth moderate to severe lines between the brows. It is the only long-lasting frown line treatment powered by a peptide with results that last on average 6 months and up to 9 months for some.* The active ingredient in DAXXIFY® is a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A.
*At least 50% of patients in clinical studies had no or minor frown lines 6 months after treatment. Between 3% and 5% of patients in clinical studies had no or minor frown lines 9 months after treatment. In other safety studies, between 5% and 17% of patients still had noticeable improvement 9 months later.
Is DAXXIFY® For Me?
Is your frown line treatment not lasting as long as you would like? If so, DAXXIFY® could be the solution for you.
Why Does DAXXIFY® Have a Peptide?
All frown line treatments require a special ingredient to stabilize botulinum toxin A, the protein responsible for helping smooth moderate to severe frown lines. For instance, BOTOX® Cosmetic uses human serum albumin (HSA), a blood product, as its stabilizer. Dysport®, another frown line treatment, uses HSA as a stabilizer and cow’s milk protein as a protectant.
DAXXIFY® is unique because it is the only formulation that uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer and does not contain human or animal byproducts.

Will I Need the Same Number of Units as My Current Frown Line Treatment?
In short, no, and here’s why. Units are like fingerprints—they are a proprietary measurement of a treatment’s unique potency. Because of the differences in how treatments are formulated and tested, you cannot compare or convert Units between them, just like you cannot compare 2 fingerprints.
A clearer way to understand dosing is to look at how many nanograms of active ingredient (botulinum toxin type A) a product has. Double the units does not mean double the dose!
Where is DAXXIFY® Made?
DAXXIFY® is manufactured in California, and the only prescription frown line treatment made in the United States. Conventional frown line treatments are manufactured in other countries, then imported into the United States.
Is DAXXIFY® Safe?
DAXXIFY® was studied in the largest-ever clinical study for a frown line treatment and included more than 2,800 people across different ages and skin types. Here are some things you should know about DAXXIFY®:
- There were no serious treatment-related side effects.
- The active ingredient in DAXXIFY® is botulinum toxin type A, an ingredient that has been used in frown line treatments for more than 20 years.
- 96% of people treated with DAXXIFY® were satisfied with their results‡.
DAXXIFY® may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Please talk to your aesthetic provider about possible side effects and consult with the Prescribing Information and Medication Guide.
‡96% of patients reported they were satisfied on a 7-point scale when evaluated at 4 weeks in clinical studies.
Do Long-Lasting Results Mean Potentially Long-Lasting Side Effects?
No, not necessarily. The most common side effects observed in clinical trials occurred within one to two weeks after injection and lasted only a short while. This is consistent with other frown line treatments.
DAXXIFY® is well-studied, with no serious treatment-related side effects seen in large-scale clinical trial
Does DAXXIFY® Work on All Skin Types?
The safety and efficacy of DAXXIFY® is well established, with more than 20 years of research. In fact, DAXXIFY® has been studied in the largest-ever phase 3 clinical trial conducted for a frown line treatment and included more than 2,800 people across different ages and with different skin types. DAXXIFY® was studied in patients with varying skin types.
