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
"went to see Emily for to get my lips filled and she did such an amazing job!!! She was so detailed and explained to me all of the things she was thinking about my lip shape and the filler she was using. She’s legit a lip artist! She was really gentle and made sure I wasn’t ever in too much pain. I didn’t even bruise at all. Not even a little bit. I needed this boost so much with all the covid weight and general tired look I’ve been having latley! I will never ever go to another person as long as Emily is doing lips! I love them and I’m so grateful!"- R.P. / Yelp / Oct 29, 2020
"BA with Dr. Poindexter & Oh So Happy! - I went to the Austin-Weston Center for a BA and had a wonderful experience! I thoroughly enjoyed working with a Patient Consultant at the start to help me make decisions regarding my aesthetic and desired results. Dr. Pointdexter was warm and professional, as well as open about all aspects of the procedure. I greatly appreciated that he personally called to check in on me the evening of my surgery. Not only was this my first plastic surgery experience, but my first time having any kind of surgery. At every step of the process, Dr. P and everyone I interacted with at Austin-Weston made sure I knew what to expect and made me feel comfortable. From consultation, to procedure, to post-op, they delivered. And most importantly, I am thrilled with my results! Dr. P is a skilled surgeon, and I highly recommend him and the Austin-Weston Center to anyone interested in plastic surgery!"- J. / RealSelf / Oct 12, 2020
"I highly recommend Emily Taylor for injections. I went in with overdone cheeks from another business. Emily identified the problem before I even mentioned it. She dissolved the filler and the results were instant. I received several complements from friends on how great I looked. My second visit was even better, botox and slight filler gave me a rested and refreshed look. You cannot go wrong with Emily. She is outstanding!"- B.H. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2020
"Love this place! The staff is amazing - from reception to the providers and Emily is PHENOMENAL! I absolutely recommend!!"- J.K. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2020
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.
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.
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.
