Wow. The whole procedure was easy and painless and the results made me feel great. The best part is that I look natural. Dr. Grodberg has a true artist’s touch with Botox.  She uses just the right amount. People comment that I look well rested but they don’t know what I’ve done.—D.D. Tenafly

Ask Dr. Goldberg

A Botox® treatment is a non-surgical procedure that can smooth the “frown” lines between the brows, “crow’s feet” on the sides of the eyes and wrinkles on the forehead. It does this by relaxing the muscles that cause these lines to form and keeps them relaxed for up to 4 months.  Daxxify®, the newest neuromodulator exclusively offered at MGMD Dermatology provides even longer lasting results" —Dr. Michele Grodberg


Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, Jeuveau® and Daxxify® all belong to a class of drugs known as neuromodulators. They are injectable treatments to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They are comprised of a naturally-occurring, purified protein called Botulinum Type A. Tiny amounts of this protein can be used to safely and temporarily disable muscles by blocking neurological signals which lead to muscle contraction. A few strategically placed tiny injections directly into the overactive muscles that cause the wrinkle or crease to form will prevent muscle contraction and minimize the appearance of the line

"Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, Jeuveau® and Daxxify™ are administered in several tiny injections. Discomfort is minimal and brief, and the area can be pretreated with an ice pack or a numbing cream. It is possible to experience some bruising at the injection site, but that can be covered with makeup. You should keep your head elevated for three hours after the procedure and should not manipulate the areas. The effect usually begins to be noticeable in a few days, with improvement continuing up to two weeks. The results typically last up to four months. Daxxify has been shown to take effect sooner and lasts longer than other neurotoxins"

"The most important difference between Daxxify™ and Botox is longevity. Unlike Botox which only lasts 3-4 months for most patients, Daxxify™ results last on average 6 months and up to 9 months for some.

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and other products use human serum albumin or cow’s milk protein to stabilize botulinum toxin type A, the active ingredient in injectable wrinkle treatments. DAXXIFY™ is the only formulation to use a novel peptide for stabilization and does not rely on human serum albumin or cow’s milk protein."

"As with any medical treatment, neuromodulators may cause side effects, which can include headache, flu-like symptoms syndrome, temporary eyelid droop and nausea. See our form “Treatment Guidelines for Botox and Neuromodulators."
