Maintain the Best Version of Yourself
Natural. Confident. Empowered.
Welcome to the West Institute
What does it take to achieve the most natural “untouched” result that ensures you will look refreshed but not “done?”… the answer is training, experience and expertise. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Tina West looked to the best in the field for training and has never stopped training during her 2 decades of practice. Advances in non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures continue to prove that prevention and maintenance are the cornerstones of looking refreshed and natural over time, and often preclude the need for surgery. Let us help you plan your maintenance now to continue looking your natural best.
I love the West Institute! I have gotten Botox in my arms once and Botox in my forehead twice and every time has just been wonderful. The whole staff is so kind and accommodating that I can’t help but be happy when I’m here. Seriously you won’t regret any service you receive and you’ll be treated like a queen!- Giovanna
I trek out here from Old Town Alexandria because that is how great they are. Dr. West is amazing at what she does and all of her staff are super friendly and professional. I have had nothing but great experiences here.- Chadsey
Dr. West is incredibly attentive and honest. She will be realistic with your goals and give you the most natural, efficient results. I am so happy to have found her and my skin has never looked better.- Soha
I have been a long-standing patient of Dr. West’s and she is simply the best! Dr. West takes her time with each of her patients and thoroughly answers all of their questions. She not only got my skin “wedding ready,” but has also guided me through pre- and post-natal skin regimens. Every visit with Dr. West is a five-star experience.- Ali
