"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

"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. 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! [Update] I am beyond satisfied with the results that Jocelyn has given me! The fillers look so natural and has enhanced my facial features . I am so pleased:)"- F.T. / Yelp / Apr 27, 2018

Types of Fillers
Our injectable fillers provide amazing results but they are all different and offer varying outcomes. Cosmetic fillers are temporary and if patients want to maintain optimal results, multiple treatments will be necessary. Some fillers like hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are also reversible and can be dissolved. Below are the injectable fillers we offer at Austin-Weston:
Juvéderm XC: An HA gel that is FDA-approved, Juvéderm is recommended for correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles, deep frown lines, and folds around the nose and mouth. Results usually last 6 – 9 months. It is used throughout the face including the lips.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus: An HA filler that also contains lidocaine. This option is slightly more plumping that XC and can last longer than 9 months. It is used in similar areas of the face.
Juvéderm Voluma: This HA filler treats age-related volume loss in the mid-face, providing a smooth, natural-looking lift and restoring a youthful contour to the cheek area. Results have been known to last up to two years. This product is typically not used around the mouth or lips.
Volbella: The first FDA-approved filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to one year with optimal treatment. We also use this filler in other areas of the face including under the eyes in the 'tear troughs.'
Vollure: Another HA gel filler in the Juvéderm family for the treatment of laugh and marionette lines with results lasting up to 18 months.
Radiesse: An FDA-approved synthetic dermal filler that reduces wrinkles by stimulating the body to produce new collagen. Unlike other dermal fillers, Radiesse also stimulates your body to produce new collagen, so you’ll continue to look more youthful and attractive over time. This filler is not an HA and thus not reversible.
Restylane: Provides the fullness and definition you can’t get with lipstick or other cosmetics. Plus, Restylane is a beauty investment you don’t wash off your face every night. So with just one treatment, you can achieve beautiful, natural-looking lips 24 hours a day for as long as six months.
Restylane Lyft: This HA filler is used to augment cheeks for a more full cheekbone area that lifts the lower face.
Restylane Defyne and Refyne: These fillers are used around the mouth to erase lines. These are HA fillers.
Belotero: Specifically designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for a smooth look that is uniquely you. Results last for 4 – 6 months and this is a reversible agent.
Bellafill: A dermal filler that is used to address nasolabial folders or smile lines. Bellafill offers long-lasting results that have been known to last up to five years. Some patients have even reported their results lasting 8 – 10 years. For long-lasting results, the filler must be injected in 4-5 concurrent sessions and it is not reversible.
What to Expect
Cosmetic injectables, or dermal fillers, are injected just under the surface of the skin to achieve natural-looking results. During your initial consultation, one of our plastic surgeons will have you make a series of facial expressions to determine the points of injection. Your results will vary depending on the type of injectable you receive. However, the most common side effects are mild redness and/or swelling.
