The Longest-Lasting, Peptide-Powered Treatment for Frown Lines
DAXXIFY is the latest innovation from Revance Therapeutics, a global leader in aesthetic medical technology. First FDA-approved in 2022 for the temporary reduction of frown lines between the brows, DAXXIFY has since shown incredible skin-smoothing results that withstand the test of time.
After several months of trialing the product, we are thrilled to announce we are now offering DAXXIFY in New Orleans. Thus far, some of our patients have experienced results lasting nearly twice as long as competing neurotoxins like Botox.
DAXXIFY (daxibotulinumtoxinA) is a neuromodulator that addresses lines in the brow and around the eyes, along with several other places. Once injected into the muscle, it inhibits acetylcholine release and temporarily interrupts nerve signals that control muscle movement. As the targeted muscle begins to relax, the skin lying over it becomes smoother, appearing less wrinkled.
This treatment differs from other neuromodulators on the market since it features Peptide Exchange Technology™ (PXT). The introduction of a stabilizing peptide, in theory, allows the product to remain active in the muscle for longer, with the goal of allowing patients to achieve comparable results to Botox with less ongoing maintenance. While Botox and DAXXIFY share a similar mechanism of action and boast comparable results, DAXXIFY in some patients can last up to twice as long. This means spending less time coming into the office to treat frown lines and more time loving your results!
At our office in New Orleans DAXXIFY is currently considered the longest-lasting treatment for brow lines, with results lasting up to half a year in some. Though not all patients gain a significant increase in longevity, most experience an increase in the length of time between treatments.
Most patients with dynamic lines between the eyebrows are great candidates for this treatment. Those who are pregnant, nursing, allergic to botulinum toxin, or younger than age 18 are ineligible for the procedure. If you've received DAXXIFY, Botox, or any other neuromodulators in the last four months, this may delay the start of treatment.
After stepping inside our gorgeous office, you will have plenty of time for an in-depth consultation reviewing your cosmetic concerns and goals. Dr. Melancon may ask you to make different facial expressions and ask pertinent questions about your medical history to determine if a New Orleans DAXXIFY procedure is appropriate. To avoid bruising, steer clear of alcohol, NSAID medications, and Vitamin E starting a few days beforehand.
Dr. Melancon is a masterful injector with a gentle hand. After determining precisely which muscles to address, she injects the product using a fine hypodermic needle. With DAXXIFY New Orleans patients are getting a virtually painless treatment made possible with a topical numbing gel.
Pinpoint bleeding, minor redness, swelling, and tenderness from the injections tend to fade in an hour or two. The treatment takes several days to take effect, though DAXXIFY is known to kick in more quickly. Over the next week, you should notice the treated area taking on a smoother appearance and fewer wrinkles. The final results become apparent within ten to 14 days. Simply return to see Dr. Melancon when the wrinkles return, indicating the product has worn off, but no sooner than three months after your last treatment.
Premier facial plastic surgeon Dr. Claire Melancon performs the injections herself, allowing her patients to achieve supremely natural-looking results. She is highly trained in all aspects of facial anatomy and proper injection techniques, ensuring the safety and most efficacious wrinkle treatments possible.
The DAXXIFY treatment is a relatively painless, quick process.
While rare, potential risks include allergic reactions, headache, bruising, drooping eyelids, facial paresis, and reduced blinking. Clinical trials show less than one percent of patients reported adverse events.
This treatment lasts up to six months and, in some cases, longer. Individual metabolism and facial expressiveness can affect longevity.
Patients considering DAXXIFY should be 18 or older or be accompanied by an adult. There is no upper age limit so long as you are healthy and have reasonably good skin quality.
