While you may have been able to smile, frown, laugh, and make other facial expressions without concern when you were younger, you might be realizing that the facial wrinkles caused by these expressions are now remaining, even after your face has relaxed. These lines are actually called dynamic wrinkles and they're caused by the overuse of the facial muscles that makes them stay contracted, forming etched lines in the skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, like BOTOX®, periodically relaxes the facial muscles with a strain of purified botulinum so your wrinkles appear smoother and softer. At Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA, we provide a number of aesthetic and dermatology procedures similar to Xeomin nonsurgical wrinkle relaxing treatments. Arrange for a consult with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons to learn more.
"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 11, 2017
"Absolutely amazing! Dr. Poindexter is top notch! This is the first review I have ever written and I feel the need to do so now to let others know my wonderful experience with Dr. Poindexter and his entire staff. The interesting part of my review is that my aunt who lives out of state introduced me to Dr. Poindexter. After extensive research, my aunt determined that Dr. P was the perfect surgeon to perform her breast reduction surgery. She asked if I would be her caregiver after her post op surgery. Of course! The day of her surgery I rested peacefully in the waiting room at Westin Austin. I was so relaxed and felt that I was at a spa! I watched both men and women of all ages come and go with smiles on their faces. My aunt's surgery went fantastic with Dr. Poindexter and she decided to schedule some facial work with him. Once again, Dr. P was incredible! So I decided I could use some fillers on my face - fill in the deep lines forming in my early 50's. I took my own before and after photos of my face. What a difference!!!! Dr. Poindexter not only changed my aunt's life but mine as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. Poindexter for being so skillful, caring, personable, and most importantly, for listening to your patient's needs and concerns. We highly recommend Dr. P!!"- K.M. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2019
"Breast Lift by Dr. Weston - Great Experience! - Dr. Weston performed a breast lift on me in October 2018 and I'm extremely happy with the results. He was great throughout the entire process and he and the entire staff at Austin-Weston obviously pride themselves providing the best possible patient care. I can't recommend Dr. Weston highly enough!"- R. / RealSelf / Jan 07, 2019
"Highest Recommendation for Dr. Weston and Austin-Weston! - Dr. Weston performed a breast lift on me in October 2018 and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Throughout the process, he was patient and caring, providing the highest surgical care the entire time. I can’t recommend him and everyone at the Austin-Weston Center highly enough. Everyone there is great!"- K. / RealSelf / Jan 07, 2019
"I’m forever grateful to have found Dr. Sigal and his practice. He is kind and confident with a lot of experience. The staff is very professional and genuine. I did a lot of research and found him on one of my Facebook tummy tuck groups. After meeting him, I have never felt so comfortable and trusting with a doctor in any practice. Words cannot explain how happy I am with my results. He is extremely talented, a perfectionist. He has sculpted my abdomen in a way I thought it was not possible. I have seen many many posts and pictures of people who also got a tummy tuck and I can humbly and honestly say that my results are one of the best ones I’ve seen. After my surgery I felt great! I was not even bruised (which I believe is because of his technique), the pain level was a 3 or 4 out of 10, and I had no complications. From beginning to end, what a wonderful experience... THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!"- S.B. / Google / Jan 06, 2019
Xeomin helps to diminish the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, including frown lines, forehead lines, Crow's feet, and smile and laugh lines. Ideal candidates for Xeomin are in good overall health, are not currently pregnant, and have never had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport. Speak with us at your consultation about your medical history, current medications, and your aesthetic goals so we can create a Xeomin treatment plan that is specific to you.
Xeomin injections typically last around 30 minutes beginning to end and can be completed in our procedure room at the conclusion of your consultation. The parts of the face receiving treatment will be sterilized before Xeomin is gently injected with a dermal needle. The procedure is fast and generally does not cause great discomfort, so local anesthesia is not necessary but is available upon request. Cold compresses and pressure will be applied to the treatment site to prevent minor bleeding prior to your returning home.
What to Expect
You can leave our office immediately after your Xeomin treatment to resume your normal activities, but exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for the rest of the day. You may want to sleep with your head elevated and apply cold compresses periodically to speed healing and results. For a few days after a Xeomin injection, you may have some redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites, but this should heal on its own and is easily concealed with makeup. Most patients will see visible improvements 3 – 4 days after their Xeomin injection that should last up to three months. Repeat treatments at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery can be scheduled to sustain your results.
