One of the most common cosmetic misconceptions people have is that wrinkles result from age. While static wrinkles appear as the skin ages and loses essential proteins (collagen and elastin), other wrinkles can occur at any age.
These wrinkles are called dynamic wrinkles, and they are caused by consistent muscle contractions in the face (often from smiling, frowning, and squinting).
Neuromodulators, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®, have long been the solution for treating dynamic wrinkles. However, DAXXIFY® is the newest FDA-approved neurotoxin that can help eliminate unsightly wrinkles between the eyebrows, also known as frown lines or glabellar lines, so that you can feel more comfortable and confident with your facial appearance.
Dr. Michael Persky is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon known for providing top-level care and offering surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to his patients.
Dr. Persky uses his artistic vision to achieve stunning and beautiful results for his patients, and he is proud to now provide DAXXIFY® treatments in Encino, California, for adults who struggle with dynamic wrinkles.
DAXXIFY® Can Correct:
While DAXXIFY®is FDA-approved for treating glabellar lines (11’s between the eyebrows), it can also be used to minimize:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Neck bands
Am I a Candidate for DAXXIFY®?
Candidates for DAXXIFY® are adult women and men who are frustrated with the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on their faces. Ideal candidates are women and men who are in good general health and have realistic expectations for their results.
At your consultation, your provider will determine if DAXXIFY® is the best treatment option for you.
What Is Discussed During Your DAXXIFY® Consultation?
During your consultation, you can discuss your aesthetic frustrations and goals. Dr. Persky will listen carefully to your concerns and evaluate your condition to create a specific treatment plan.
Additionally, Dr. Persky will ask about existing concerns, medical conditions, previous treatment history, and any current medications you are taking.
How Does DAXXIFY® Work?
Neuromodulators work by temporarily blocking signals sent from the nerves to the brain. When this happens, the muscle can no longer contract, which keeps the skin from wrinkling.
For your treatment, a topical anesthesia may be used to minimize any discomfort you feel. Dr. Persky will inject DAXXIFY® directly into the troublesome muscle(s). Once the injections are finished, your treatment session is complete. The entire process generally takes less than 10 minutes.
Unlike other neuromodulators, DAXXIFY® is revolutionary because it uses a peptide instead of human serum albumin as a stabilizer. This allows DAXXIFY® results to last longer than other neurotoxin injectable treatments.
Is There Any Downtime Associated With DAXXIFY®?
DAXXIFY® requires no downtime. While you may experience some swelling, redness, and slight discomfort in the injection location after your treatment session, these side effects usually dissipate within a few hours. Most patients can return to work and their daily activities immediately after their DAXXIFY® treatment.
What Results Can I Expect From DAXXIFY®?
DAXXIFY® can help you achieve smooth and beautiful skin by removing frustrating lines and wrinkles on your upper face and neck. Not only can you expect to have physical benefits from your DAXXIFY® treatment, but you can look forward to feeling more comfortable and confident with how you look.
While other neurotoxin results generally last three to four months, your DAXXIFY® results can last up to six months and even longer. Once the neurotoxin begins to wear off, you can undergo maintenance treatments to ensure your skin is continuously looking how you want.
