Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA understands the changes that come with age. Every year, countless men and women visit our practice to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. If you are unhappy with the way your skin has aged and you want to significantly diminish the signs of dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic can bring great improvement. This injectable wrinkle relaxer is a simple, nonsurgical option that can help you look and feel years younger.
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.
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 get Botox services here. Jocelyn is incredible. I used to go to another doctor but ended up with a droopy eyelid. She knew exactly what to do avoid that from happening. She’s gentle, precise, and is okay being on the more conservative side like I requested. She’s also very personable and friendly which makes my 45 min ride to their office worth it!! Highly recommend them, especially her for Botox!"- A.K. / Google / Feb 11, 2018

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 – 6 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.
