Procedure Daxify

When you age, your skin loses elasticity. As a result, every facial expression can leave behind wrinkles or creases, including frown lines. One way to resolve frown lines and facial expression lines is through the DAXXIFY® injectable.

This approach to age-related changes can reduce wrinkles and fine lines and create a more youthful look. At The Heights Plastic Surgery Med Spa, we proudly offer DAXXIFY injections in San Antonio to transform your look and boost your confidence. Find out more about how DAXXIFY can turn back the hands of time.


DAXXIFY treatment is growing in popularity because of its ability to reduce the appearance of facial lines. DAXXIFY uses natural peptides and botulinum toxin to smooth the skin and make creasing less visible. This gives you a more youthful appearance around the eyebrows and forehead.

DAXXIFY produces real results that can help you achieve your cosmetic goals without surgical intervention. The results can last as long as six months.

How Does DAXXIFY Work?

DAXXIFY works by combining the effects of botulinum toxin with peptides. Botulinum toxin is used to subdue your facial muscles, helping reduce your skin’s movement. In turn, that restricted movement reduces the appearance of wrinkles and prevents new ones from forming.

Botulinum toxin must be stabilized by a protein when injected into the skin. Similar aesthetic products use HSA, a blood product. DAXXIFY sets itself apart from other injectables by using a novel peptide as a stabilizer for the botulinum toxin. This can provide enhanced anti-aging effects without human or animal byproducts like HSA.


Little to no preparation is required before DAXXIFY treatment, but you should avoid certain things in the days leading up to your appointment. These include:

  • Blood thinners
  • Retin-A
  • Fish oils rich in omega-3
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Allergy medication
  • Aspirin
  • Sleep medications or supplements
  • Topical steroids
  • St. John’s Wort
  • Supplements containing Vitamin E
  • Ibuprofen

Your injection specialist will provide more detailed instructions at your consultation.

During your DAXXIFY session, a small needle will be used to administer your injections. You will likely feel a slight pinch at the injection site. If you are worried about discomfort during this process, ask your team member to apply a topical numbing cream beforehand.

DAXXIFY requires little downtime afterward. Most people resume their normal activities immediately following their session. You may notice that the injection site is swollen or red in the hours following treatment. There may also be tenderness in this spot. These effects are usually minimal and dissipate in the hours after your session.

You will gradually see the effects of Daxxify set in over the course of ten days after treatment. Full results are achieved after fourteen days.

Many people choose to get frown line treatment repeated every three to six months.

DAXXIFY offers longer-lasting results with fewer treatments. When you have DAXXIFY injections administered, your results can last as long as six months. As a result, two yearly sessions make for an ideal treatment schedule.

When you repeat your injections at month six, you avoid the last few weeks of your DAXXIFY effects winding down. The result is continuously smooth skin without any appearance of frown lines throughout the year.
