At Clareo Plastic Surgery, we understand how valuable your time is, and that's why we provide our patients with options that can eliminate some time-consuming maintenance treatments. For glabellar or forehead lines, that option is DAXXIFY, which typically lasts twice as long as other neuromodulators for fewer appointments with beautifully smooth results. Boston, MA, plastic surgeons Dr. Michael Tantillo and Dr. Christopher Lee and their stellar staff are committed to educating patients on each procedure. They can guide you through your wrinkle-reduction options to help you achieve the rejuvenated facial appearance you have been looking for.
DAXXIFY utilizes a specialized formula that contains daxibotulinumtoxinA to effectively smooth dynamic wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing delicate facial muscles. A groundbreaking advancement in neuromodulator injectables, DAXXIFY incorporates peptides, known as protein "building blocks," for superior stability and, consequently, longer-lasting results.
Both DAXXIFY and Botox utilize a botulinum toxin active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, to smooth facial wrinkles, particularly addressing glabellar lines by temporarily "freezing" muscles between the eyebrows for a seamless appearance. While Botox is known as a reliable industry standard, it typically requires maintenance every 3 to 4 months and can take several days to produce results. With DAXXIFY, you can experience significant changes in just one to two days and enjoy results that last up to twice as long as Botox—often up to 6 months or longer. This extended duration reduces the frequency of maintenance appointments, providing a more convenient option for wrinkle correction.
If you feel like your glabellar or "11 lines" are making you look older or are giving you a serious or fatigued appearance, DAXXIFY is an effective solution to smooth and refine your look. Our Boston, MA DAXXIFY patients can:
Overall, ideal candidates want to address mild to moderate glabellar or forehead lines and:
Candidates for DAXXIFY should be in overall good health, have no active skin infections, and be non-smokers.
During your consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic goals in detail, examine your face, and cover your health history to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for this treatment. If there are any complementary treatments that can help you move towards your goals, we can also include those with your comprehensive treatment plan. Prior to treatment with DAXXIFY, you will need to avoid blood thinners, including NSAIDs, for about two weeks and avoid alcohol for a few days.
Your provider will begin by cleansing and preparing your skin in the injection area, and topical numbing cream can be applied if preferred for maximum comfort levels. Then, DAXXIFY will be precisely injected using very fine, medical-grade needles. Most appointments take about 30 minutes or less to complete.
Some patients experience redness or sensitivity at or near the injection sites that typically resolves in just a few hours after treatment. We will advise you not to lie down for about four to six hours afterward in order to allow the serum to settle and to sleep with your head elevated for a few nights. Results for most patients are visible within a day or two and last a stunning six to nine months.
Our highly qualified and dedicated team is passionate about providing personalized care and delivering outstanding aesthetic results. Led by renowned Boston plastic surgeons Dr. Michael Tantillo and Dr. Christopher Lee, who have been recognized as Vitals Top Doctors and RealSelf Doctors, the Clareo team are dedicated to making sure every patient can have a customized approach for reaching their aesthetic goals. Whether it's for intricate reconstructive surgeries or subtle aesthetic procedures, your path to beauty and confidence is our top priority.
This treatment is not generally painful and is considered very tolerable by most patients.
Minor side effects, such as swelling or bruising near the injection site, could occur, and more serious risks, such as allergic reactions, are possible but are very rare.
For most patients, DAXXIFY lasts two to three times as long as most neuromodulators, and you may see results for up to nine months.
This treatment can definitely be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, and other types of fillers or topical treatments could also be administered for an overall fully rejuvenated result.
The cost of DAXXIFY will vary depending on each patient's treatment plan and their unique aesthetic needs.
