Dr. Leslie Pickens

About Face Aesthetic Centers, located in Alexandria, VA is owned by Dr. Leslie Pickens, who specializes in Cosmetic and Cellular Medicine. Dr. Pickens uses cutting edge scientific and advanced artistic approaches to give her patients proven non-surgical solutions to uneven skin tone, scars, acne, damaged and aging skin.

For over a decade she has incorporated advanced techniques for administration of Botox ® and dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm™, Radiesse® and Belotero®. She incorporates non-cosmetic uses for Botox for the treatment of migraines, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction and excessive sweating.

She was one of the first to offer the first medically cleared medical device for body shaping and cellulite reduction, VelaShape. She is very excited about being one of the first physicians in Alexandria to incorporate cellular medicine for skin rejuvenation. She has successfully resolved or reduced joint pain using platelet rich plasma (PRP) instead of medications or surgery and is now treating thinning hair and baldness with similar results.

What is the difference between surgical procedures and Medspa procedures?  
Surgical procedure generally imply removal via incision or a suction device.  There is usually conscious or full sedation administered.  This can be done at a Medspa, surgicenter or hospital operating room.  Non-surgical procedures are done without incisions or suction devices to remove  or insert tissue.  Treatments at Medspas often include non-medical treatments such as facials, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, chemical peels and skin care

It’s not just about appearance, we focus on health, well being and pain management.
