What is BOTOX?
Snyder Dermatology in Austin, TX assists both men and women in delaying cosmetic surgery with nonsurgical skin rejuvenation to create a softer, younger looking appearance. BOTOX is offered at all of our Austin area locations to treat forehead wrinkles, as well as fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. This popular, anti-aging treatment is manufactured under the name Botulinum Toxin Type A, and works its magic with countless patients. Once injected, the muscles under the skin temporarily relax, which not only smoothens the surface of the skin, but helps prevent additional static lines from forming. Patients that come to our Austin dermatology office to receive BOTOX come back about every 3 – 4 months because they love their results so much.
"Reading some of the older reviews, I'm completely amazed that we're talking about the same person. I've had consistently great experiences with Dr. Snyder. I'm a 30-something empty nester (please don't do the math!) and aged a LOT in the past few years as my kid got through h.s. and went off to college. A work pal tried Botox and I was a little worried for her. I expected her to end up looking stiff and masklike, but instead, she looked like a better-rested version of herself. After that I had to try it, so she gave me the name of her doctor. I should point out that I have been to other dermatologists here in town, and Snyderma is my favorite by far. The first doctor was in a dank, cramped office with horrible classroom-style lighting. It was like taking a time machine back to 1974. The next was so over-the-top glam that I was waiting to be ejected by a burly doorman hired specifically to keep the rif-raf like myself out. That one had a long wait, and when she came in, was wearing Louboutins so high I don't know how she could even walk, which seemed like a really odd choice of footwear for an M.D. in the middle of the day. The receptionist acted like I was lucky she acknowledged my presence. Yikes. Frankly, I'd always been terrified of and a little offended by the concept of Botox or having any type of "work done". I'm an all-natural kind of girl - I almost never wear makeup, I use natural products, I consume mostly organics, etc. - so injecting paralyzing agents into my face just sounded insane. However, I couldn't ignore the permanent scowl line between my eyebrows that made me look surly all the time, or the deepening crow feets settling around my eyes. After seeing my friend's results I decided to just try it out. Fortunately, Snyderma was convenient to where I worked, so I headed over for a quick appointment. The office is nice but not intimidatingly fancy, and the staff is that creepy combination of thin/blonde/young which can be a little much, but they're still polite. I found Dr. Snyder to be very personable and efficient, and she didn't rush me at all. We talked about what I wanted (subtlety!) and she made suggestions. It definitely felt like we were working together, and that's not something I can say about most doctors I've been to. I was very pleased with the results, and got so many compliments. As with my friend, I still looked like myself, just... better. My face was still expressive - not remotely frozen or waxy like you might expect. The next time, we adjusted it a little and talked about options for the future. Though I now work quite far away and getting to 38th is a pain, I'll be going back again soon and plan to stick with her for the foreseeable future. It's not super cheap, but much more affordable than it would be in a bigger city. The results are amazing, and well worth the investment."- C.B. / Yelp / May 31, 2011
"Dr. Snyder is wonderful, quick, and a rock star. She always listens to the quantities of botox I'd like and never goes over (a problem for many derms that make most of their income in non-insurance procedures). Excellent bedside manner!"- V.P. / ZocDoc / Aug 07, 2017

"What is wrong with me that I love coming to the dermatologist? Maybe because Dr. Foley and Pam are just the best - so professional, caring, kind, and do just what I need done with no pushy extra stuff. It's like coming to see friends who know how to keep me healthy and looking better than when I entered. I love them! More Botox coming up..."- M.R. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2020

Patients who desire BOTOX treatment will receive a thorough skin assessment so that the injection points can be marked, and the amount of BOTOX can be configured. The dosage amount will be determined based on the location, depth, and quantity of the wrinkles being treated. We typically charge per the unit of botox used. For example, the 11's or the glabellar region requires 20 units typically. The injections take place right inside our dermatology office after the treatment area is thoroughly cleaned and marked. The patient will feel a slight prick once the needle passes through the skin, at which time we will use a light cold compression to help minimize discomfort and swelling. The treatment is complete within about 15 minutes.
Q: Can I combine botox treatments with other spa services?
A: Yes, it is common for someone to get microneedling or a peel or filler at the same service appointment.
Q: How much botox do I need?
A: Depends on the muscles you want to have relaxed, this really needs an in office evaluation.
After a BOTOX treatment patients will have mild swelling and redness at the injection sites that resolves after 20 minutes. Although bruising can occur with an injection, we are very careful to prevent this and also recommend our patients take a bruising preventing medication, such as Arnica, prior to their treatment if they are prone. Patients can resume normal activities after injection. In addition, we do not recommend lying down after the injection. For most patients, it typically takes about 10 days for the results to appear. Once they do, patients will see a smoother, softer complexion with a significant decrease in dynamic wrinkles and static lines. Patients always remark to us that they feel like they have a a new glow about them. BOTOX helps them look and feel younger and they love their outcomes!
