Daxxify® or Botox®? Which is better for forehead wrinkles? 

Daxxify® and Botox® are both effective at improving the appearance of forehead wrinkles. But Daxxify effects may last up to 6 months. Botox® injections may last only for about 4 months or even less than that.  Depending on individual results, people who choose Daxxify® may need only 2 treatments a year instead of scheduling three or four maintenance treatment injections a year.
