"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
"I have never had cosmetic surgery until this year and trying to find a doctor was nerve racking with such little experience! After weeks of looking for a reputable surgeon, I set up consults with a few places. Austin-Weston was hands down the best of all, with a quick response time and extremely polite and friendly staff. After an amazing consult with Sharan Khanna (request her if you are setting up an appointment!) and Dr. Poindexter, I was all set for my breast augmentation. The surgery went incredibly smooth and healing has been a breeze. I am almost 1 month post-op and the results are incredible. I have zero pain, pretty much invisible scars, and I will absolutely be returning to Austin-Weston. If you are seeking a professional and friendly surgeon, please request Dr. Poindexter. He made me feel incredibly comfortable and relaxed in a situation that can be easily scary for a first timer."- A.H. / Yelp / Jun 11, 2020
"Would Do It Again - I had the BEST surgical experience that I have ever had! I historically become very very sick postoperatively. The clinic spared no expense to provide the best care possible. I am very pleased with the outcome of my procedure and specifically Dr. Knotts. I would recommend him to anyone."- C. / RealSelf / Jun 10, 2020
"Great Results and Feel Amazing! - Dr. Pointdexter and the staff were amazing! They answered all of my questions, took their time, and gave the pros and cons of the procedure. The best part was that the results came out better than I thought and look NATURAL! The pricing was affordable and they provide a lot of options on how you can pay. My overall experience was a good one and really have no complaints. I would recommend them to anyone who even has a thought about wanting to get something done. You will not regret it!"- C. / RealSelf / Jun 08, 2020

I had previously gone elsewhere for treatment but will definitely go to Austi- Weston for all future needs."- S. / RealSelf / Jun 08, 2020
Radiesse Procedure Technique
Radiesse wrinkle injections are performed in a treatment room at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in around 30 – 60 minutes once you have completed your consultation. To start the procedure, you will lay in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel tolerable discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick of the needle, but if preferred, a local anesthetic may be spread on the treatment sites. The Radiesse dose, determined during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked site of injection will help the injector to carefully administer Radiesse into the needed areas. As soon as the treatment is done, a compress will be held to the treated areas to reduce bruising and swelling.
What to Expect with Radiesse
Following your Radiesse injection, you may have mild redness, swelling, and bruising. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be camouflaged with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact our center for further instruction. Many patients have visible results minutes after the treatment with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and lifted. Radiesse typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers, with improvements for about 1 – 2 years. You can talk to your plastic surgeon at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
