Born in Sesimbra, Paixão spent his early career in Portugal and Spain, playing with lowly teams in both countries – his hometown's G.D. Sesimbra, FC Porto B, CD Guijuelo, Logroñés CF and Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa.
In 2007–08 he suffered relegation from Segunda División B with Logroñés and, in the following season, scored 13 goals for Leonesa.
Paixão's first taste of professional football came in 2009 as he signed for Scottish Premier League side Hamilton Academical on 6 August, alongside twin brother Flávio. He made his league debut for Hamilton on 22 August, against Aberdeen.
On 11 April 2011, it was announced that Paixão would be released at the end of the campaign. However, just three days later, he was released from his contract with Hamilton with immediate effect, alongside his brother; he appeared in 56 official games for the Accies, scoring six goals.
In early January 2012 Paixão joined his brother in Iran, signing with Naft Tehran F.C. until the end of the season. Five days later he made his debut in a 1–3 home loss against Foolad FC, scoring his first goal in a 1–0 win over Malavan FC.
In the 2012 summer, Paixão joined Cypriot side Ethnikos Achna FC. He netted his first goal for his new club on 3 November, in a 1–1 draw at AEL Limassol.
In June 2013, Paixão signed a two-year contract with Śląsk Wrocław in Poland. He scored a career-best 21 goals in 2013–14, but his team could only qualify for the relegation play-offs.
On 9 January 2016, Paixão joined fellow Ekstraklasa side Lechia Gdańsk after agreeing to a two-and-a-half-year contract.
