September 19, 2022

- Glabellar injection of DAXXIFY™ demonstrated a positive effect on eyebrow position -

- DAXXIFY™ demonstrated a high response rate and duration of effect ≥24 weeks across all age and race subgroups -

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 19, 2022-- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: RVNC), a commercial stage biotechnology company focused on innovative aesthetic and therapeutic offerings, today announced the publication of two peer-reviewed articles in Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the official journal of The Aesthetic Society. The publications reported the impact of DAXXIFY™ (DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm) for injection on brow position and frontalis muscle activity from a post-hoc analysis of patients in the Phase 2a forehead line (FHL) study and the SAKURA open-label safety (OLS) study as well as presenting the efficacy and safety of DAXXIFY™ analyzed by age and race based on a subgroup analysis of the SAKURA glabellar lines clinical trials.

“The newly released publications in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal showcase Revance’s commitment to generating novel data that helps healthcare providers more fully understand the clinical performance of DAXXIFY™,” said Conor Gallagher, PhD, Vice President of Medical Affairs and Scientific Innovation at Revance. “This data demonstrates that treatment of frown lines with DAXXIFY™ results in an overall positive change in eyebrow position even with a modest reduction in forehead muscle activity.”

Dr. Gallagher further stated, “The subgroup analysis displays a consistent duration of effect across adult patients of all ages and skin types, bolstering Revance’s commitment to advancing scientific research in a range of ethnic and diverse backgrounds.”

The first publication evaluated the impact of glabellar injection of DAXXIFY™ on eyebrow position and frontalis activity. A post hoc analysis of patients from the Phase 2a FHL and SAKURA OLS studies, who received a single dose of DAXXIFY™ 40 Units to the glabella, showed a positive reduction in dynamic frontalis activity while maintaining or slightly lifting the eyebrows. Two weeks after treatment with DAXXIFY™ in glabellar lines, mild eyebrow elevation (at rest) was observed in the lateral, mid and medial brow regions. Further, a reduction in forehead skin compression (reflective of a reduction in frontalis muscle activity) was observed two weeks post DAXXIFY™ injection in glabellar lines with the greatest reduction in activity in the lower half of the frontalis.

A separate publication evaluated the efficacy and safety of DAXXIFY™ in the treatment of glabellar lines across age and race based on a subgroup-analysis of patients treated in the Phase 3 SAKURA clinical program. DAXXIFY™ demonstrated long-lasting efficacy in all subgroups, consistent with the overall population results of the SAKURA clinical trials. The analysis included 2,785 patients with moderate to severe glabellar lines who received their first dose of DAXXIFY™ (40 Units) in SAKURA 1, 2, or 3 and were evaluated for glabellar line severity for ≤36 weeks. Efficacy and safety were analyzed by age (18-45, >45-55, and >55 years) and race (Asian, Black/African American, and White). The proportion of patients achieving none or mild glabellar line severity at maximum frown based on Investigator Global Assessment–Frown Wrinkle Severity (IGA-FWS) rating after DAXXIFY™ treatment was high in all age and race subgroups (>96% at Week 4). Glabellar line severity of none or mild by composite IGA-FWS and Patient Frown Wrinkle Severity (PFWS) rating was maintained for a median of 24.0 weeks in all age subgroups, and 27.0, 25.3, and 24.0 weeks in the Asian, Black/African American, and White subgroups, respectively. The safety profile of DAXXIFY™ was consistent across the three main age (18-45, >45-55, and >55 years) and race subgroups, with headache and injection site reactions being the most commonly reported treatment-related treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs) and treatment-related eyelid ptosis being reported in <2% of patients.


DAXXIFY™ (DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm) for injection is the first and only FDA approved long-lasting peptide-formulated neuromodulator product for use in adults for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines).1-7 DAXXIFY™ has the ability to deliver year-long results for patients with potentially only two treatments per year and has been proven to be effective, and generally safe and well tolerated.2,8-10* DAXXIFY™ is powered by a cell-penetrating peptide technology (Peptide Exchange Technology™), Revance's proprietary, synthetic, 35-amino-acid stabilizing excipient with a highly positive charge, and is free of human serum albumin or animal-based components.1,2,7 Manufactured exclusively in the U.S., DAXXIFY™ is the first true innovation in neuromodulator product formulation in over 30 years.

Revance has evaluated this neuromodulator formulation in other Phase 2 clinical studies in aesthetics, including the full upper face, forehead lines and crow’s feet as well as in therapeutic indications, including cervical dystonia and upper limb spasticity. Learn more at

* At least 50% of patients treated with DAXXIFY™ in SAKURA 1 and 2 had none or mild frown lines per investigator or patient assessments for 24 weeks and 23.9 weeks (6 months) or longer (respectively) after treatment.
