Daxxify is an FDA-approved injectable designed to diminish dynamic wrinkles caused by facial muscle movements. It uses a purified protein to temporarily relax facial muscles, reducing wrinkles. Effective on frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet, among others, our treatments of Daxxify in San Carlos offer a non-invasive solution for those seeking youthful skin. Most impressively, the results from Daxxify last six to nine months, making it a long-lasting alternative to Botox.

How does Daxxify work?

Daxxify operates as a neurotoxin that blocks the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter facilitating muscle contractions. When injected into facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, it inhibits their contraction, smoothing the overlying skin. Derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, the purified protein in Daxxify binds tightly to nerve receptors, aided by its higher molecular weight and unique stabilizing agents, prolonging its wrinkle-relaxing effects for six months or more.

What happens during the Daxxify treatment?

During your Daxxify treatment, our trained healthcare provider discusses your goals, examines your facial skin, and curates a personalized treatment plan. The provider cleanses your skin and marks the injection points, following which they administer precise injections into the targeted facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles.

The purified neurotoxin inhibits muscle contractions and smooths out wrinkles. Your treatment of Daxxify in San Carlos will conclude within 30 minutes.

What are the side effects of Daxxify?

The side effects of Daxxify may include redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites for a few days. These side effects cause minimal discomfort, and the bruises can be concealed with makeup. The side effects dissipate within a few days.

Is there any downtime after Daxxify?

Daxxify doesn’t involve any downtime. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but avoid strenuous workouts and heavy lifting for a day or two. Our providers will offer detailed aftercare guidelines to ensure a smooth recovery.

When will I see the results?

The results from getting Daxxify in San Carlos will appear within a few days, with continued improvements for two weeks as your facial muscles relax. You can expect the final results within two weeks.

How long do the results last?

Daxxify is a long-lasting neurotoxin. While most neuromodulators, like Botox and Dysport, only last 3 to 4 months, Daxxify lasts up to 6 months. In some cases, patients have also observed that the results have persisted for up to 9 months. As such, you need a maximum of two Daxxify sessions per year to maintain a smooth, youthful appearance.
