Daxxify Daxxify in San Ramon, CA

Sculptra InjectionsGet long-lasting reduction of fine lines and wrinkles with Daxxify in San Ramon. Dr. Place and the Aesthetic Skin Care Center use this cutting-edge injectable neuromodulator to reduce facial muscle overuse, smoothing out age lines.

Daxxify’s results last two to three times longer than Botox treatments. It is able to achieve this because its formula uses peptides instead of albumin. This makes the injectable a great vegan option for people with allergies or lactose intolerance. Schedule your consultation to learn more about Daxxify.

What Is Daxxify?

Daxxify, or daxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm, is a neurotoxin used to put a pause on muscle movement in the treated areas. The neurotoxin blocks nerve signals that command muscles to contract. No muscle movement means that the muscles can relax back into their at-rest position. This allows the fine lines and wrinkles in the overlying skin to fade, achieving younger-looking skin.

Daxxify is FDA-approved to treat frown lines, also called glabellar lines. It can also safely and effectively treat crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, chin wrinkles, and more. Improvement in the treated areas is visible within two days.

The Science Behind Daxxify’s Long-Lasting Results

Daxxify is a product line by Revance Aesthetics formulated with their very own peptide exchange technology (PXT). The novel peptide in Daxxify acts as a stabilizer, whereas human serum albumin is used to stabilize other neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport.

This is the reason for Daxxify’s longer-lasting effect of six to nine months. The peptide helps the neurotoxin bind better to the muscle, as well.

Daxxify does not use any human or animal byproducts in its formula. Because of this, patients with possible allergies to albumin and lactose intolerance can safely undergo Daxxify treatments.

Am I a Good Candidate for Daxxify?

The best candidates for Daxxify are individuals with frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. This is an excellent minimally invasive option for those who prefer a longer-lasting non-surgical treatment for fine lines and wrinkles.

Daxxify candidates must have no hypersensitivity to botulinum toxin. Daxxify may not be safe for pregnant or nursing women. Please wait after pregnancy and breastfeeding before considering this treatment.

Your Daxxify Consultation

The consultation will begin with an in-depth conversation about your appearance goals. You will also be asked about your complete medical history to ensure you are eligible for the treatment.

Once your eligibility is confirmed, the possible injection sites will be discussed, along with your potential results. This will help you set realistic expectations for the treatment. You will also receive a list of dos and don’ts to help you prepare before your Daxxify appointment.

Your Daxxify Session

Topical anesthesia can be applied before a Daxxify treatment. This numbs the area to prevent discomfort in the injection sites. Once the numbing cream goes into effect, Daxxify will be mixed with preservative-free sterile saline. This acts as a diluent for the product.

Daxxify will then be injected into the treatment areas. The whole treatment session typically takes less than 15 minutes.
