BOTOX is the most well-known brand of neuromodulator and is our preferred treatment. We do offer all brands of neuromodular if patients prefer. This includes Xeomin and Dysport.
BOTOX is used to decrease the facial movement that occurs with normal facial expression. As we age, the lines formed during expression can begin to stay in place and give the appearance of sadness or anger. Botox can keep the facial muscles from moving as strongly and thus allow your body's own natural collagen to fill in the fine lines. Keeping up with the treatments is necessary to let the fine lines slowly fill in with time.
During the initial consultation, our plastic surgeons will ask about your concerns and your goals to help you decide if BOTOX is the best treatment for you. Ideal candidates will have:
- Wrinkles caused by facial expression that are not present at rest
- Expression lines that convey sadness or anger in the upper face
"I've been seeing Jocelyn for injectables for over a year and she is the best nurse injector I have ever had (I'm 39 and I've been getting botox/dysport for about 10 years now). I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She is caring, sweet, absolutely stunning (which is a pretty good advertisement for her own services...seriously, ask her how old she is...you'll be blown away!), and as an injector, she's gentle, fast, and her injections are painless. Her skills at getting just the right amount in just the right location are flawless.On top of that, she is honest about what you need and what you shouldn't get. She's NEVER pressured me to get anything I didn't want, and always keeps me in the loop when it comes to discounts by the injectable vendors or events sponsored by Austin-Weston. That's a big deal to me, because I'm a single mom living in a pricey area, and it's sometimes difficult for me to finance procedures that are for myself versus my family.But feeling beautiful is priceless; Jocelyn is an angel for helping me get back some of my confidence and restoring a bit of my youth. I could not be happier as her client."- C.S. / Yelp / Dec 05, 2017
"Jocelyn Brackett is an absolute gem! I came to DC looking for an expert injector after being with mine for over 4 years. I spent a month trying to find the new person I was going to trust to work on me. The instant I met Jocelyn I knew. She is graceful, educated and a whiz with both needle and blunt tip cannula technique. She made me feel very comfortable during the entire process and even scheduled touch ups on Saturdays for me. If you are looking for someone to look at you critically, have an expert hand and have a progressive outlook on injectables, Jocelyn is your person!"- C.G. / Yelp / Sep 22, 2017
"I recently went to Jocelyn for botox, fillers and lip injections and I am amazed by the results. She honestly is the best practioner I have seen so far. I feel super comfortable with Jocelyn, and trust her judgement fully. I will forever go to Jocelyn, and I highly recommend her."- J.K. / Yelp / Apr 05, 2017
"This cosmetic center has done so much to help me regain my confidence in myself and look my best. They are by far the best group of doctors, nurses and staff you could ever have the pleasure of dealing with. I have had several cosmetic surgery procedures here, all done by Dr. Poindexter. He has been so good to me and done such a fantastic job with everything that I've had done. He has never over done or suggested anything that I didn't need, and has always made me look very natural. Also, I have never been in pain or very uncomfortable for any of it, he has made sure of that! It's definitely changed my life for the better and I'm so lucky that a friend referred him to me.Since then I frequently go in and currently use the services of two other ladies there. They have enhanced my appearance tremendously and compliment the procedures I had with Dr. Poindexter.Savannah Marks helps me with my skin care and does BBL treatments that has cleared up sun and age spots on my skin. So much so that I wear very little make up foundation now thanks to her. She goes out of her way to do the best job for me and is extremely knowledgeable and so pleasant to deal with. My friends have even noticed a difference in my skin so I keep going back! The other lady I need to mention is Jocelyn Brackett, a nurse, that recently did some injectables on my lips and also some Botox. I've never had my lips done before and I'd heard she was an excellent injectable specialist, so I tried her out. She fit me into her schedule the same day that I was getting some skin care done. It was so convenient for me and she did a fantastic job and made it look so natural. Between these three excellent professionals, I will keep coming back for anything that I need. They are the best cosmetic surgery center in this area no question and money well spent!"- H.S. / Yelp / Sep 05, 2017
"Jocelyn Brackett is quite simply just as Classy and Beautiful inside as she is outside. I have been going to the Austin Weston Center years, and I'm not embarrassed to write that my file might be the size of a small phone book! Jocelyn has been an RN in the room with me over the years during several Botox and Filler Appointments. It wasn't until my Esthetician Savannah Marks whom I trust implicitly raved about Jocelyn's work and educated me that Jocelyn herself practic...es on patients. Over the past few months I've been fortunate enough to have Jocelyn share her ideas, techniques and skills on what would look best on me. I work in an industry where the understated is important to me. I spend most of my days meeting with C Level Executives and my reputation is critical to my success, Jocelyn understands that and her work is impeccable. Thank you Pretty Lady for everything, your work is sensational!"- C.C. / Facebook / Aug 15, 2017
What to Expect
A BOTOX treatment is usually performed on the same day as your consultation in about 15 – 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure. One of our plastic surgeons will clean the treatment sites before the BOTOX is injected into the facial muscles with a thin needle. Most patients feel mild to no discomfort during the procedure, but local anesthesia or numbing cream can be used if the patient prefers. Patients will be able to leave right away after their BOTOX treatment but they should avoid lying down, touching the injection sites, and exercise for at least 24 hours. There may be temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the first 1 – 2 days.
While some results will be seen soon after the treatment, patients will see optimal results of BOTOX in 3 – 4 days as the dynamic wrinkles begin to soften and smooth. Final results are seen at two weeks. BOTOX treatments usually last 3 - 4 months, so patients are encouraged to schedule their next appointment after their treatment to prevent the results from fading. One of our plastic surgeons may also suggest a follow-up appointment in several weeks to check the patient’s progress and add more BOTOX, if needed.
For patients with lines at rest that are worse with animation, BOTOX can be used to ease the worsening with animation, but filler may also be required to help the appearance at rest. Your surgeon will discuss this with you during the consultation.
