What Are Neuromodulators – Botox, Xeomin, Daxxify, Dysport and Jeuveau?
Wrinkles and fine lines in the face and neck can be improved with the expert placement of neuromodulators such as Botox, Daxxify, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin. We refer to them as “toxins.”
Neuromodulators soften wrinkles and fine lines by relaxing muscle groups. These toxins, like Botox, are especially effective at softening frown lines. The use of Botox for forehead lines is demonstrated in this video.
Something important to keep in mind – the effect of the neuromodulator, no matter the brand, is NOT instant. Botox can take up to two weeks for the correction to be seen. Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are a little quicker, two to five days.
Jeuveau is a recent newcomer neurotoxin that arrived in 2019. It’s important to note, the dosing units for Jeuveau are not the same as, or comparable to, any other botulinum.
Now you can soften your frown lines and wrinkles for twice as long with the newest toxin on the market: Daxxify. On average, results last 6 months, and in some patients, up to 9 months. It’s the first and only peptide-powered frown line treatment. In December 2022, Biotechnology company Revance introduced Daxxify. It’s the only neuromodulator made in the USA. And, 93% of toxin-experienced patients prefer Daxxify. My patients tell me Daxxify gives them “the best results I’ve ever achieved.”
Daxxify went through clinical studies and rigorous FDA approval to ensure it is safe. It is a botulinum toxin like Botox, but it also has peptides. Another difference is that Daxxify is free of human serum albumin (a protein found in human blood) or animal-based components. The trials show no difference in side effects from the other toxins currently on the market.
Wrinkles, fine lines, loss of volume in the face can all be improved by combining the two types of facial injectables: dermal fillers and neuromodulators, like Botox. Expert injectors like Dr. Golomb often use filler and toxin during the same appointment to achieve “full correction” for a more youthful appearance.
