How Does BOTOX Work?

BOTOX Cosmetic, DAXXIFY, and similar neurotoxins such as Dysport® and XEOMIN® are often called wrinkle relaxers because they treat dynamic wrinkles caused by the repeated contractions of facial muscles. These products share the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily prevents treated facial muscles from contracting, allowing wrinkles in the overlying skin to gradually smooth away.

What Areas Can Neurotoxins Like BOTOX Treat?

Best known for softening wrinkles in the upper face, BOTOX, DAXXIFY, and other neurotoxins can be good options for treating other concerns at our Atlanta practice (see illustration).

Dr. Jarmuz can treat multiple areas in a single session that’s customized to your precise goals.

Masseter Reduction & Facial Slimming With BOTOX

Some Atlanta patients have prominent or overdeveloped jaw muscles–called masseters–that cause fullness in the lower face or a square-looking jaw. By injecting BOTOX into these muscles, we can cause them to relax, which slims the lower face, creating what’s sometimes referred to as a “V-line” face shape. This procedure enhances the contours of the lower face, highlighting the cheeks and chin. Dr. Jarmuz will work with you to determine if you are a good candidate for jawline slimming with BOTOX or another neuromodulator.

DAXXIFY is a BOTOX alternative that treats similar concerns, including dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines between the eyebrows. While its wrinkle-smoothing capabilities are comparable, DAXXIFY has some notable differences.

Benefits of DAXXIFY

In addition to the benefits it shares with BOTOX, DAXXIFY is the only “vegan” neurotoxin stabilized with a peptide rather than human albumin or an animal protein. It also produces results more quickly than BOTOX, and the results typically last longer.

When will I see the results from DAXXIFY?

DAXXIFY results develop in 1 to 2 days, 1 to 3 days earlier than those from BOTOX.

How long does DAXXIFY last?

DAXXIFY results last about 6 to 9 months, about twice as long as BOTOX and other neurotoxins.

Is BOTOX Better Than Other Neurotoxins?

Dr. Jarmuz helps determine during your consultation whether BOTOX Cosmetic, DAXXIFY, or another neurotoxin is the best option for your specific needs. The products are very similar. BOTOX is probably the most well-known cosmetic product in the world, and its popularity stems from how effectively it can diminish dynamic wrinkles. Though less well-known, DAXXIFY, Dysport, and XEOMIN are equally effective.

All 4 products are FDA approved. The primary differences between them are:

  • Results following DAXXIFY treatments typically appear earlier and last longer than with other neurotoxins.
  • XEOMIN contains no additives and requires fewer units than BOTOX for similar results.
  • Dysport has a thinner consistency than BOTOX, so its effects spread farther from where they are injected.

Dr. Jarmuz can evaluate your face, listen to your goals, and recommend the product that is best for you.

Your Neurotoxin Procedure

Treatment with these injectables can take as little as 10 minutes. First, we apply a topical anesthetic to the skin to numb the area, and then your injector uses a very fine needle to inject a tiny amount of neurotoxin into the muscles that contract and cause dynamic wrinkles.

How Long Does It Take BOTOX To Work?

All neurotoxins take a few days to produce results. This timeframe varies between products and is generally as early as:

  • DAXXIFY: 1 to 2 days
  • Dysport: 2 to 3 days
  • XEOMIN: 3 to 4 days
  • BOTOX: 3 to 5 days

Which Lasts Longer BOTOX or Other Neurotoxins?

The duration of neurotoxin results varies between products and with individual factors. In general:

  • DAXXIFY: lasts up to 6 to 9 months
  • Dysport: may last up to 5 months
  • BOTOX: lasts up to 4 months
  • XEOMIN: lasts up to 3 months

When your lines begin to return, you can repeat the treatment for continued improvement. Many patients return for regular maintenance treatments for a consistently refreshed look.

An Emphasis on Natural-Looking BOTOX Results

Dr. Jarmuz believes cosmetic procedures are only truly successful when they aren’t obvious. When it comes to BOTOX and DAXXIFY treatments, patients are sometimes concerned that their results will look unnatural or “frozen.” You can rest assured that this is not the case for our patients. We take a conservative approach, using small doses of these products to ensure that your face moves easily and naturally — just with fewer wrinkles.

Treatments for Men

More men are getting injectable treatments than ever before. Social media and the desire to look younger in a competitive work environment are motivating men to seek nonsurgical cosmetic treatments such as BOTOX and DAXXIFY. Dr. Jarmuz’s team can perform these discreet treatments during a lunch hour; no downtime is needed. We can maintain your masculine facial contours while making you look younger and more alert.

Surgical & Nonsurgical Alternatives

In some cases, these injections may not be the best option if you are seeking results that last longer or are more extensive. Dr. Jarmuz offers several anti-aging procedures that may be right for you, including:

Additionally, there are other nonsurgical treatments that can be used on their own or combined with BOTOX, DAXXIFY, or other neurotoxins for a comprehensive nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Some of the options include:

Whatever your goals are, Dr. Jarmuz can use her experience and skill to create a customized plan just for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the main differences between BOTOX, DAXXIFY, and other neuromodulators?

Although BOTOX Cosmetic, DAXXIFY, Dysport, and XEOMIN work in the same fashion, they are a bit different from each other. Many of these differences are fairly technical and don’t mean much to the average person. For example, DAXXIFY doesn’t contain any human or animal proteins, and Dysport has a different consistency than BOTOX Cosmetic. It’s important to remember that each patient is different, and Dr. Jarmuz can help you better understand which product (or combination of products) is best for you during your consultation.

What is the difference between neurotoxins like BOTOX and dermal fillers?

BOTOX and DAXXIFY are wrinkle relaxers used to treat wrinkles that form from repeated facial movements. Dermal fillers are different from these products because, just as their name implies, they physically fill in wrinkles using special gels. This makes injectable fillers especially useful on deeper lines, such as nasolabial folds. We often perform wrinkle relaxer and dermal filler injections together for a comprehensive rejuvenation.

Can you tell if someone gets BOTOX?

No. When performed by a trained medical professional, such as the injectors at our office, BOTOX and DAXXIFY yield results that are subtle and natural-looking. Your friends and family may comment that you look well-rested, refreshed, or simply better — but they likely won’t know you’ve had injections unless you tell them.

Dr. Jarmuz and her team offer a variety of surgical and minimally invasive facial cosmetic procedures in Atlanta.
