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
"Austin-Weston is amazing. My first experience with them was in 2007 when I had a life-changing breast reduction. I healed quickly, had minimal scarring and was able to finally buy a shirt that buttoned within weeks of the surgery. 10 years later, I'm still thrilled with the results.For the past year, I've been seeing Savannah for laser hair removal of some hair in undesirable places. Each time, Savannah is incredibly nice and gentle... And there's a noticeable difference each time. After 6 full sessions and a few touch ups, you can't even tell! And after 30 years on this earth, she informed me that I did not have oily skin and switched me over to an Austin-Weston moisturizer that has greatly improved my complexion and made my skin look so much better!The hair removal has greatly improved my confidence and I'm so excited about the results!"- N.C. / Yelp / Dec 12, 2017

Now I know why they're reviews are so good.Special shout-out to dr. Weston, nurse Carla, nurse Jennifer, nurse shawntia, and anestist Mike. All were amazing! Don't go anywhere else, with every penny and the drive to get here."- A.L. / Yelp / Mar 09, 2018
"Best dermal filler artist I’ve ever been to! She’s amazing and so honest and great at what she does. True artist! Do you see my lips!??! My cheeks?!!! I’m addicted! Ladies she’s the bomb!"- S.S. / Google / Mar 07, 2018
"Jocelyn is a miracle worker ! She wholly has an aesthetic eye for detail and perfection. I've come to her at least four times now for non-surgical enhancement.Each time, she has taken the time to listen (and truly listen! Not cutting me off or dismissing my concerns or questions like previous medical professionals I have encountered). I usually come with a list of 5-7 questions and an ideal beauty goal in mind. She is very knowledgeable and patient. And most of all, she's realistic in her approach and practice. I appreciate that very much. She doesn't upsell procedures like other greedy doctors and nurses. As you can tell, I've had appalling experiences in the past. But, Jocelyn has shown me the light! I feel valued as a patient whenever I come into the Austin-Weston Center. I will never let anyone else touch my face but her!"- F.T. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2018
"I am so happy I chose Austin-Weston for my Mommy Makeover! Dr. Weston is quite simply one of the kindest doctors I have ever met. He did a marvelous job and I feel fabulous! The nurses that work there are fantastic as well. Friendly, kind, caring and very good at what they do. I saw Jocelyn for the first time today for Botox and she was just delightful. Highly recommend Austin-Weston!!!!! Don't bother looking anywhere else."- H.G. / Yelp / Feb 16, 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.
