At Carolina Facial Plastics, we focus entirely on cosmetic treatments for the face. We offer Daxxify®, Dysport®, and Botox® as non-invasive options for facial rejuvenation with neuromodulators. Unlike other neuromodulators, Daxxify utilizes a stabilizing peptide exchange technology that has been shown to produce longer-lasting results during research trials.
The expert injectors at Carolina Facial Plastics are Heather Bryant, MPAS, PA-C, Courtney Whitley, FNP-C, and Amanda Piligian, PA-C. All are skilled injectors with a level of expertise not found anywhere else in Charlotte, NC. We can help you rejuvenate your appearance without giving you a “frozen” look that can occur when less experienced injectors perform the procedure. We are the first medical practice to offer Daxxify in Charlotte.
What sets Daxxify apart from Botox and other neuromodulators is its duration of results. While most neuromodulators produce results that last between 3-4 months, Daxxify can sustain results for up to 6 months, or longer in some patients.
Daxxify, also known as daxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm, is a neuromodulator used to treat dynamic wrinkles that develop due to repeated muscle movement. It is unique because it is the only formulation that uses a novel peptide as a stabilizer. This neuromodulator comes to us from Revance Therapeutics, Inc., the same company that introduced the RHA dermal filler line.
If you are noticing lines and wrinkles between your eyebrows, Daxxify may be able to help reduce those creases and restore a more youthful appearance you can enjoy for several months.
Daxxify is FDA-approved to treat the glabellar lines (also known as frown lines), or the vertical lines that appear on the forehead extending upward between the eyebrows. It can also be used to treat other wrinkles of the face including the forehead and around the eyes. In some cases, it can be used to raise the corners of the mouth or smooth out a wrinkly chin or nose.
A Daxxify treatment typically takes just a few minutes to complete. Most treatments take between five and 15 minutes. The needle used for the procedure is tiny, so most patients do not require topical numbing to ensure a comfortable treatment. Once your treatment is over, you can immediately resume your schedule.
Carolina Facial Plastics is a boutique and specialty medical practice that focuses solely on the face and neck. Our team members have all received the highest level of training and have extensive experience with injectables. These factors will ensure you have the best possible outcome while minimizing any risks. Dr. Kulbersh encourages patients to trust their faces to our experts for all their treatments.
Our injectors pride themselves on superior results and seek to tailor the treatment to your individual concerns and desires.

Frequently asked questions
A neuromodulator is a muscle-relaxing, wrinkle-smoothing injectable that works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles. As a result, it reduces muscle activity, which causes lines and wrinkles to form. As the muscle relaxes, the wrinkles in the skin smooth out, creating a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance
Daxxify injections at our Charlotte, NC office are very well-tolerated. We take many steps to ensure the comfort of our patients during treatment. As a general rule with injections, the needle’s size directly correlates to the level of discomfort patients will experience. At our office, we use the smallest needle possible for these injections.
Additionally, a sharp needle will be better tolerated than a dull needle. For this reason, we will use multiple fresh needles during the injection to limit discomfort. The injections themselves take 2-7 minutes to complete.
If you see lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows and would like longer-lasting results, you should choose Daxxify over other neuromodulator treatments.
That said, Daxxify may be more appropriate for those who’ve already tried other neuromodulators like Botox Cosmetic or Dysport. Since Daxxify lasts much longer and you cannot undo an outcome you are unsatisfied with, it is best to first establish an injection pattern with a trusted provider who already understands your unique needs and goals. Only then should you try a longer-lasting product like Daxxify.
The cost will depend on the number of areas treated and the units required. Typically, men have stronger muscles and will require a larger dose than women. For this reason, it is common for men’s treatments to be more expensive. Our staff will be able to give a price estimate for Daxxify in Charlotte over the phone if requested.
We understand that patients are concerned about the cost of Daxxify, but this should be a secondary concern. The most important decision a patient will make is who they choose to perform their treatments. Patients should not underestimate the skill, training, and experience of the injector, as this is the single most important factor in ensuring a positive outcome.
