Ideal Candidates for Daxxify
Daxxify is a suitable frown line treatment for many men and women. Candidates must be in good health and have an accurate understanding of what Daxxify can and cannot accomplish. It is important that candidates understand that Daxxify results are temporary, so they will need additional injections sessions to prevent frown lines from reappearing and/or worsening.
In order to determine if you are an ideal candidate for Daxxify, Dr. Emer will need to gather some information about your current and prior medical conditions and any facial surgeries you have had in the past. Be sure to advise Dr. Emer if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or plan to become pregnant, as this can affect your candidacy and your proposed treatment schedule.
Dr. Emer will also ask you about your previous experience with injectable wrinkle relaxing treatments like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and/or Jeuveau. Patients who have developed Botox resistance can be good candidates for Daxxify. However, patients who have a known allergy to botulinum toxin products should not receive Daxxify injections, nor should anyone who has a skin infection in the treatment area.
How Does Daxxify Work?
Daxxify works by temporarily incapacitating treated facial muscles to release and prevent the contractions that cause frown lines. When the neurotoxin, botulinum toxin type A, is injected at a low, specific dosage into an overactive muscle, it blocks the nerve signals that would cause the muscle to contract.
As long as Daxxify is active in the muscle, the muscle will be held in a state of relaxation, which means the skin between the eyebrows can remain smooth and flat. After several months, Daxxify will wear off. If you do not have additional injections, the muscles will resume normal function, and your frown lines will reappear.
Daxxify can be injected into the following areas:
- Full Face – Forehead Glabella Crows Masseter Chin
- Neck – Platysma Bands
- Pressure Points for headache/migraine
- Scrotum (Scrotox)
Dr. Emer will provide you with complete and personalized pre-treatment instructions prior to your treatment. Preparing for Daxxify injections primarily involves avoiding certain medications before your appointment, including aspirin, ibuprofen, allergy medications, blood thinners, topical steroids, and sleep medications. You will also be advised to avoid taking specific supplements, such as fish oil, St. John’s Wort, and those that contain Vitamin E.
Dr. Emer performs Daxxify injections at his state-of-the-art medical practice in Beverly Hills. Patients typically tolerate the injections well and often describe feeling a pinching sensation with each injection. Though this treatment is not considered to be painful, a topical numbing product can be applied prior to your injections to make this quick, convenient treatment as comfortable as possible.
Daxxify does not require a recovery period, downtime, or intensive aftercare. Most patients can resume their normal schedule of activities, such as returning to work, immediately after a Daxxify procedure. Post-injection discomfort is usually minimal.
Some patients experience tenderness, redness, or minor swelling at the injection sites. These effects typically subside within a day or two and often dissipate within a few hours.
How Long Does It Take to See Daxxify Results?
Daxxify delivers results quicker than other injectable neuromodulators which can take several days to take effect. With Daxxify, some patients notice improvements within a day of treatment, and most will see a reduction in frown lines within two days. The full extent of your Daxxify injections can be expected within two weeks.
How Often Will I Need to Get Daxxify Injections?
Daxxify provides longer-lasting results than Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin, which wear off after three to four months, on average. In contrast, Daxxify keeps frown lines at bay for about six months for most patients, and some patients have reported that their Daxxify results last for up to nine months.
The ideal treatment schedule for you will depend on your body’s unique response to Daxxify. Dr. Emer will assist you in planning for future appointments, so you can maintain your enhanced look.
This is sometimes referred to as a “spider web” facial. The needles are removed as soon as they are all inserted. They leave behind a mesh of PDO threads that support the skin and stimulate new collagen production as they dissolve. The application process is quick and painless, and the results take effect quickly.
For acne in particular, Dr. Emer recommends a combined treatment program for optimal results. Your customized acne scarring treatment may include CO2 laser resurfacing, microneedling with PRP, RF microneedling, Halo laser, and Bellafill for scarring.
