To reduce signs of aging and to prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and lax facial skin from forming, Allegro MedSpa in Santa Rosa is proud to offer DAXXIFY, a longer-lasting neuromodulator, to our patients.
DAXXIFY (daxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm) or “DAXXI” is a one of a kind, FDA-approved peptide-formulated injectable frown line treatment with visible results lasting around 6 months, and sometimes even longer.
This anti-aging injectable treatment achieves outstanding results for both men and women. DAXXIFY in Northern California offers natural, yet transformative facial rejuvenation by smoothing dynamic wrinkles caused by animated facial expressions and muscle contractions on the forehead.
DAXXIFY is a neuromodulating injectable, similar to Botox® and Dysport®, that temporarily blocks nerve signals to treated muscles. DAXXIFY is injected into facial muscles to reduce muscle activity and diminish expression lines and wrinkles. Similar to other neurotoxin injectables, DAXXIFY is approved to treat frown lines between the eyebrows (also known as the “11s” or glabellar lines), and it can safely and effectively be used off-label in other areas to treat crow’s feet, horizontal forehead creases, or be used above the lip to achieve a “lip flip” effect.

WHO SHOULD GET DAXXIFY
DAXXIFY injections in Santa Rosa are ideal for men and women who seek non-surgical facial rejuvenation for smoother, wrinkle-free skin.
DAXXIFY, like BOTOX and Dysport, is a neurotoxin used for individuals in good health who want an effective, non-surgical treatment to diminish the appearance of dynamic lines, wrinkles, and moderate creases on their face, including vertical “banding” on the neck (platysmal bands). Here in Santa Rosa, DAXXIFY and other botulinum toxin injectables are ideal for patients who do not want or need invasive aesthetic surgery, as well as those who desire a preventive treatment to prevent static wrinkles that have not yet formed.
You are likely a good candidate for wrinkle treatment if you have obvious expression lines on your forehead, frown lines between the brows, or crow’s feet around the eyes. DAXXIFY can also be used to achieve a non-surgical “lateral brow lift” in some cases. For deeper lines, a combination of DAXXIFY and a dermal filler may be a better option to achieve your desired aesthetic outcome. Our expert injectors also offer dermal fillers, which are used to address wrinkles and for soft tissue augmentation in the lips, cheeks, jawline, and more.
HOW IT WORKS
Learn how DAXXIFY wrinkle treatment in Santa Rosa works
DAXXIFY and other injectable neurotoxins are performed as an outpatient procedure for line and wrinkle removal at Allegro MedSpa in Santa Rosa. During your consultation, we will discuss your goals for your appearance and review your medical history to ensure you can receive a safe, beautiful outcome you will love.
Once we understand your goals and have determined that DAXXIFY is an appropriate cosmetic treatment for you, we will ask you to make a few facial expressions, such as frowning and squinting, to mark where injections should be placed for optimal, personalized wrinkle removal results. We will cleanse the treatment area and, if you prefer, we can apply a topical numbing cream to increase your comfort during the brief treatment.
Using the placement marks for guidance, we carefully inject DAXXIFY under the skin using an ultra-fine needle. The injections will be followed by a cold compress to minimize swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
To treat frown lines between the brows, DAXXIFY is typically injected at 5 points on the forehead:
- 1 injection between the eyebrows
- 2 injections above the inner corner of each eyebrow
DAXXIFY wrinkle removal treatments usually take between 10 – 15 minutes and you are free to return to most normal activities immediately after your cosmetic injections. We will simply instruct you to avoid massaging the treatment area or engaging in any intense exercise in the hours immediately after you receive neurotoxin injections.
What to Expect
Here’s what to expect after receiving DAXXIFY in Santa Rosa.
After your treatment
After your DAXXIFY injections for wrinkle removal, you may resume your normal schedule, though we will ask you to avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for a day. Avoid applying pressure to your face to prevent DAXXIFY from accidentally spreading to other areas.
The treated areas may become slightly bruised, swollen, or red for a few days, but these effects are generally mild and will quickly resolve on their own.
You may see wrinkle removal results within 24-48 hours, or up to 2 weeks after treatment. Results with DAXXIFY can last between 6-9 months.
To maintain results, your injector will advise you on how often you should schedule touch-up DAXXIFY appointments at Allegro MedSpa in Santa Rosa.

Don’t let fine fines, wrinkles, and creases hold you back from enjoying all life has to offer. With DAXXIFY , you are free to express yourself without aging your appearance. To see how DAXXIFY can rejuvenate your look, we invite you to schedule a consultation in Santa Rosa, California.
How much does DAXXIFY in Santa Rosa cost?
The total cost for your DAXXIFY treatment will depend on your cosmetic goals for your appearance and how much product we will need to use for optimal wrinkle removal. We will give you a specific cost estimate at your consultation based on the number of DAXI units recommended—and then perform your treatment in the same appointment, if you feel ready.
It is important to avoid bargain cosmetic providers when it comes to any injectable neurotoxin. While injectables like Botox and DAXXIFY can offer amazing results, your satisfaction will depend on having a highly-experienced injector who understands the nuances of controlling facial musculature to reduce wrinkles, while preserving a natural appearance.
Note that pricing will not vary significantly between legitimate medical providers as the base price of DAXXIFY is set by the manufacturer; this means that pricing that is too low is a definite red flag which may indicate lack of experience or the use of an over-diluted or counterfeit product.
How long will my results last?
Daxxify results can last for up to 6 months or longer—a significant advantage over other neuromodulating injectables such as BOTOX, which only lasts about 3-4 months for most patients. The condition of your skin, your cosmetic goals, and your unique anatomy and physiology will also influence the longevity of your results.
What’s the difference between DAXXIFY, BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin?
Each of these neuromodulators can achieve beautiful, natural cosmetic results when performed by a skilled injector, but the primary difference between DAXI and these other options is how long the effects of DAXXIFY last. During clinical trials, DAXXIFY lasted for more than 6 months for more than half of the patients and up to 9 months for some. As such, DAXI patients may be able to extend the time between touch-up neurotoxin treatments without seeing diminished cosmetic results.
This is because DAXXIFY is formulated with a proprietary Peptide Exchange Technology™ (PXT), which means that the toxin that relaxes the muscle is attached to a protein, which can extend DAXI’s effect on treated muscles. Further, DAXXIFY is considered to be “clean” as it does not contain any human or animal by-products; it uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer.
What’s the difference between wrinkle relaxers (neuromodulators) and wrinkle fillers?
Both neurotoxin and filler treatments are safe and effective wrinkle removal treatments but they have different cosmetic effects on your face. Neuromodulators temporarily relax facial muscles that cause expression lines (think frown lines, crow’s feet, and creases across the forehead). Dermal fillers, on the other hand, diminish lines and wrinkles by adding volume to specific nearby areas to provide a lifting effect on creases; they can also treat wrinkles more directly by filling them out from below. At Allegro MedSpa in Santa Rosa, we often combine neuromodulator and filler treatments to create a non-surgical “liquid facelift.”
Is DAXXIFY safe?
Yes—the safety profile and possible side effects of DAXXIFY are similar to those of other neuromodulators like Botox (which has been safely used in medicine for over 50 years). Choosing a reputable med spa and skilled injector will minimize the risk of potential complications and maximize your cosmetic results.
