5 out of 5 stars
I have been a regular patient of Dr. West for several years now, and I trust her implicitly. Dr. West performs both my Dysport and dermal fillers on a maintenance schedule. As a board certified dermatologist, she has impeccable bedside manner and the artistic skill required for these types of procedures. At each appointment, she listens carefully to my concerns and then offers her expertise as an experienced cosmetic dermatologist, providing her honest opinion as to what she believes would look best and most natural without looking "overdone." For those times when I request dermal filler in a place she thinks isn't needed, she takes the time to explain why. There are numerous plastic surgeons, medical spas, etc. in the Washington D.C. area that provide these same services. However, I choose to return to Dr. West because she is a well-trained, talented doctor who keeps current on all the new advancements in the field of cosmetic procedures. Finally, I would also like to comment on the professional staff she has working with her as well as the inviting and overall clean office environment. All of her staff is exceptionally courteous and competent. I highly recommend the West Institute.
5 out of 5 stars Liquid Facelift
I am a longtime patient of Dr. West. Each time I see her, she proves her passion and artistry in the 5 STAR results she helps me achieve in reaching my aesthetic goal to reverse the signs of aging. Dr. West is so gifted in the placement of filler and Botox that no one can tell I’ve been “worked on.” Her warmth and friendly bedside manner affords me the comfortability to express my wishes to her. She listens carefully and is always able to understand the results I seek to achieve. Her thorough communication and ability to clearly address my inquiries yields the most magnificent and natural results. My face looks amazing. She effectively reverses my "aging look" in a subtle and discreet manner. I feel beautiful and confident. Lastly, I am always very pleased with her office staff. These ladies are professional, very friendly, and have outstanding product and service knowledge which are also very important to me and play an essential role in the remarkably pleasant office visits I experience when I see Dr. West. I highly recommend this office.
5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment
I generally don't write reviews, but felt so lucky to have found Dr. West, I am compelled to review the experience. The entire staff is not only professional and knowledgeable, but personable and caring as well. I have never had a wait greater than 3-4 minutes in the times I have been there. Dr. West listened to my specific needs and created a treatment plan that fit my desired results and circumstances. The office is clean, modern and has the absolute latest in laser equipment. My appointments were run meticulously with each staff member ready and prepared at each step of the way. There was plenty of time and a relaxed environment for questions, etc.and Dr. West took her time to discuss every question/concern in detail and with a friendly demeanor. In addition to the follow-up calls and appointments after the laser treatment, Dr. West also included several bottles of different healing gels/cleansers/sunblocks, 2 (aquamist?) facials to help the healing process, and even performed a minor additional treatment - at no extra charge! It was obvious to me, at all times, that everyone there has a true interest in my actual results and satisfaction. And, my actual results are amazing! I have had scars on my face for 20+ years and was somewhat resigned to having them. After the procedure, my skin healed very quickly (much more so than what I have read in people's blogs) and my skin is now lovely! I never thought I would feel that way about my skin, but each day I look in the mirror I actually feel happy. The doctor is gifted in her abilities. Like I said, I don't generally write reviews, but my experience here was very unique!
4 out of 5 stars Cellulaze
Dr. West and her entire staff are very pleasant and professional. I felt like they care about me as a person and a patient. They were very responsive (especially Tracy, she is awesome) to all my many questions and concerns. They even offered to re-touch the spot I feel does not show any results if after some more time passes, I'm still not happy. Dr. West is also is very adept at the procedure. I felt like I was in very good hands, and did not feel at all that she was "too rough" or anything with the laser; the actual laser use seemed to go smoothly, no pun intended. I would recommend Dr. West.

5 out of 5 stars Cellulaze
Dr. Tina West and her staff at The West Institute for Skin, Laser and Body Contouring couldn't have been more professional. I was seen on time and had a very thorough Cellulaze consultation. She answered all my questions and was very honest about the procedure, which helped me have realistic expectations. Dr. West performed my procedure with care, asking me how I was feeling and for my feedback the entire time. It was a great experience! I highly recommend Dr. West!
