Dr. Carniciu of New York Eye and Face started distributing the longer-lasting DAXXIFY injection that promises to keep you wrinkle-free for 6 to 8 months and helps you say goodbye to wrinkles quickly and long term. Of course…I have been waiting to get more information on this service and I booked an appointment with Dr. Carniciu to get the scoop for you. I am a believer and with my fingers crossed hope not to need another appointment until the late fall/holiday time. Here is what Dr. Carniciu had to say.

What is the difference between DAXXIFY and other “tox” injections?
DAXXIFY has been shown in scientific studies to be the longest-lasting neuromodulator or “tox” on the market. DAXXIFY injections last an average of 6 months, and up to 9 months in some patients. In contrast, other tox injections last an average of 3 months, and up to 4 months in some patients. Overall, you can expect your DAXXIFY to last twice as long as your traditional “tox” injections.
How long until I see results?
Results take 1-2 days to begin kicking in, sooner than the other “tox” injections. Similar to other neuromodulators, full onset takes 2 weeks. Regardless of the type of neuromodulator used, I see first-time patients back for a complimentary visit at 2 weeks after their injections to assess results and touch up as needed.
Since it is longer lasting do you use the same amount of injections?
The same number of injections are used per session, but the strength of the active “medicine” per injection is more potent. So, there are no additional pokes! In fact, with DAXXIFY patients have 2-3 fewer annual visits to their physician injector, so they are getting injected less often.
Does it cost more that my current injections?
Since the duration of DAXXIFY averages twice as long as the other neuromodulators, this science comes with a higher price point per session. The per-session cost is approximately 1.5x the cost of traditional injections. However, patients can expect to save overall on their “tox” injections with DAXXIFY, since most patients only need 1-2x sessions per year instead of the 3-4x per year required to maintain results of other neuromodulators.
Who is a good candidate for DAXXIFY?
Women and men who are looking to reduce wrinkles and maximize their time with less frequent visits to their doctor! Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have certain neurological conditions should avoid neuromodulators, including DAXXIFY.
Are there any side effects?
Bruising and swelling can occur after injection. Bruising can be prevented with icing and minimizing alcohol and NSAID (ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin) use after injections. If bruising does occur, the BBL HERO laser has a special setting that treats bruises. We offer this laser bruise treatment as a complimentary service to our cosmetic injection and surgical patients at New York Eye and Face Oculoplastic Surgery.
