"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

The miraDry system delivers electromagnetic energy noninvasively to the area where the sweat glands reside. However, to provide extra comfort, local anesthesia is injected into the underarm area prior to the procedure. Typically, two procedures are recommended three months apart to maximize the results and duration. Each procedure appointment generally lasts about an hour. Since miraDry uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands, these structures don’t typically grow back after treatment, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
What to Expect
You can expect minimal to no downtime following your miraDry procedure and should be able to return to normal activities or work right after your session. Typically, strenuous exercise should be avoided but can resume within several days. Localized soreness or swelling is common and usually clears within a few weeks. These symptoms may also be eased with ice packs or over-the-counter pain medication. Some patients have short-term, altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
