"We are very pleased to end 2022 on a strong note, highlighted by continued growth and adoption of the RHA® Collection along with an excellent start to our early experience program for DAXXIFY®,” said Mark J. Foley, Chief Executive Officer of Revance. “In particular, we are very encouraged to see the early traction of our DAXXIFY® PrevU program, which was initiated in Q4 and further benefited from the impact of traditional seasonality. We have been very pleased with the initial response to, and the positive feedback on, the product’s performance and ease of practice integration. While we are still in the beginning phase of the PrevU program, our progress thus far gives us confidence in our commercial strategy and in DAXXIFY’s full-scale commercial launch, which is expected to begin in late Q1/early Q2 of 2023. Looking ahead, our strategic priorities in the new year will center on delivering a successful commercial launch for DAXXIFY®, continuing the growth of our aesthetics portfolio, and unlocking our therapeutics opportunity by obtaining the FDA’s approval of DAXXIFY® for cervical dystonia.”

“Building on the success of our launch of the RHA® Collection of dermal fillers, we initiated a strategic, phased roll out of DAXXIFY® with our PrevU program to approximately 400 select practices,” said Dustin S. Sjuts, President of Revance. “With our core objectives of ensuring outstanding aesthetic outcomes and smooth practice integration of DAXXIFY® while also leveraging its unique value proposition, we are very pleased with the comprehensive training and education that we have provided to a group of early adopters at our Nashville headquarters. Further, as we executed this program during the busiest time of the year for aesthetic procedures, and through planned injection events held by practices, we generated real-world clinical insights from hundreds of injectors and thousands of patients, which will be invaluable to our commercial launch. We are very pleased with the results of our strategy and execution and look forward to completing PrevU while also preparing for our sales force expansion which we anticipate will happen by mid-year”

DAXXIFY® PrevU Program:

PrevU is an early experience program that focuses on product education, practice integration, and real-world clinical insights for optimizing aesthetic outcomes. Following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval of DAXXIFY® in September 2022, Revance trained a group of 20 U.S.-based faculty members who had access to the product prior to the initiation of the PrevU program. In December, Revance launched PrevU with approximately 400 select practices. These practices were invited to attend training sessions held over the first two weeks of December at the company’s Nashville headquarters and experience center that was led by the faculty trainers. Following onsite training, practices held planned patient injection days and events to drive product utilization and gain real-world clinical insights. PrevU training and education was also expanded to the additional injectors and staff of these practices through virtual sessions. These practices will continue to provide additional clinical feedback on the product through late Q1/early Q2 2023, after which the commercial launch of DAXXIFY® is expected to begin. Revance expects to launch the product first to its existing base of over 5,000 aesthetic accounts.


DAXXIFY® (DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm) for injection is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and neuromuscular blocking agent indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients.


The effects of DAXXIFY® and all botulinum toxin products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects. These symptoms have been reported hours to weeks after injection. Swallowing and breathing difficulties can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. DAXXIFY® is not approved for the treatment of spasticity or any conditions other than glabellar lines.



DAXXIFY® contraindications include hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin preparation or any of the components in the formulation and infection at the injection site(s).

Warnings and Precautions

Please refer to Boxed Warning for Distant Spread of Toxin Effect.

The potency units of DAXXIFY® are not interchangeable with other preparations of other botulinum toxin products. Recommended dose and frequency of administration should not be exceeded. Patients should seek immediate medical attention if respiratory, speech or swallowing difficulties occur. Use caution when administering to patients with pre-existing cardiovascular disease. Concomitant neuromuscular disorders may exacerbate clinical effects of treatment.

Adverse Reactions

The most commonly observed adverse reactions (≥1%) were headache (6%), eyelid ptosis (2%) and facial paresis (1%).

Drug Interactions

Co-administration of DAXXIFY® and aminoglycoside antibiotics, anticholinergic agents or any other agents interfering with neuromuscular transmission or muscle relaxants should only be performed with caution as the effect of DAXXIFY® may be potentiated. The effect of administering different botulinum neurotoxins during course of treatment with DAXXIFY® is unknown.

Use in Specific Populations

DAXXIFY® is not recommended for use in children or pregnant women.

Please see DAXXIFY® full Prescribing Information, including Boxed Warning and Medication Guide.


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).1-2,7-11 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.2-5* 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.1,2,11 Manufactured exclusively in the U.S., DAXXIFY® is the first true innovation in neuromodulator product formulation in over 30 years.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes preliminary unaudited non-GAAP operating expense, which excludes costs of revenue, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation. Revance excludes costs of revenue, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation because management believes the exclusion of these items is helpful to investors to evaluate Revance's recurring operational performance. Revance management uses this non-GAAP financial measure to monitor and evaluate its operating results and trends on an on-going basis, and internally for operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. The non-GAAP financial measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.

Revance is unable to reconcile preliminary unaudited non-GAAP operating expense to the most directly comparable GAAP measure because the items that are being excluded from the non-GAAP financial measure are difficult to predict and a reconciliation or a range of results could lead to disclosure that would be imprecise or potentially misleading. Material changes to any one of the exclusions could have a significant effect on our preliminary estimates and GAAP results. Such items include costs of revenue, depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation.
