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 plastic surgeons to learn more.
"First-rate Care and First-rate Results! - Incredibly satisfied with my results. I woke up a couple months after surgery realizing I had forgotten I ever had or needed it in the first place, like I got to grow up without breasts-- and the euphoria from that is so worth it. Incredible both as my first experience with ANY surgery as well as my first experience with cosmetic surgery, Dr. Sigal put me at ease very quickly by being affirming, kind and excited about helping my body match me a little better. Would absolutely recommend Austin-Weston to trans people who are looking to have gender-affirming care by means of cosmetic surgery, and will most likely come back if I ever feel I need it."- F. / RealSelf / Oct 06, 2021
"I love Austin-Weston! The staff is so friendly and very knowledgeable. I went for a procedure called SculptSure and I was a little nervous about getting it done. I was afraid that it would be painful and that I wouldn’t really see any results. I talked with Shima Karimi and she explained to me what to expect in detail. She made sure to check in every 5-10 minutes during the procedure to make sure I was comfortable the whole time. The procedure was short, painless and easy! I can definitely see a big difference and I am super excited to go in for my second round of treatment. Thank you Austin-Weston!"- A.M. / Yelp / Sep 15, 2021
"I am almost done with my bikini and under arm laser hair removal with Shima is truly amazing. If you get jitters or nerves or retract, she is very patience and works with your fears or pain tolerance. Amazing work etiquette and standards all around. Couldn’t ask for a better facility, a better laser and a better esthetician."- H.F. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2021
"Dr. Weston made me look 20 years younger - After losing 110 pounds, I looked in the mirror and realized I lost at least half of that in my face. I felt great and looked awful, skin hanging from my neck and jowls that would make a bulldog jealous. I am very grateful to Austin Weston Clinic and in particular to Dr. Weston for a combination of his medical expertise and his artistic talent to turn back time. I am forever grateful to this wonderful man who made me look 20 years younger."- J. / RealSelf / Sep 08, 2021
"I have just had my second session and I already see a different in my waist line - I went to Shima for 2 session of Sculpsure. I had a wonderful experience. She was very detailed in explaining the procedure to me as well as post care. I was very comfortable throughout the procedure and Shima stayed in the room the whole time to ensure I was doing ok. I would definitely recommend going to Shima for your Sculpsure services. I have just had my second session and I already see a different in my waist line."- G. / RealSelf / Sep 06, 2021
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.
