I highly recommend this practice and Dr. Cervantes!"- E.R. / Google / Aug 06, 2022
"I started going here for almost 2 years now. I must say that Dr Moore has been a complete blessing on my journey of self confidence. He’s done a complete transformation on me to include, vanishing my melasma via LaseMD, he has removed my unwanted moles throughout my neckline and now he his helping me rid lines around my eyes with Botox. One of the things I can appreciate about him is that he has never recommended anything unless I brought the issue to hîs attention. If you are considering any of these procedures, go see Dr Moore."- P.H. / Google / Feb 18, 2023
"This place came as a recommendation from the patrons at Burn Boot Camp in Stone Oak. Dr. Annabelle Garcia, the dermatologist at Sonterra Dermatology, also attends camp with me. Her office is beautiful and she and the staff are professional, efficient, and kind. This is my first Botox treatment and they were very reassuring during the whole process. I’m looking forward to seeing the final results!"- G.K. / Google / Apr 22, 2023

What is BOTOX?
BOTOX® is a simple and effective way to rejuvenate the skin and soften the appearance of crow's feet, laugh feet and frown lines. BOTOX®, derived from the Botulinum toxin type A, is injected by San Antonio Board Certified dermatologists, Dr. Annabelle Garcia, Dr. Milton Moore, Dr. Tessa Cervantes and Dr. Allison Metzinger. BOTOX® targets and ceases the muscle activity that is responsible for causing wrinkles. With BOTOX®, our dermatologists can treat moderate to severe lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. Most patients will notice results in as little as 7 days with effects lasting up to 4 months. This FDA-approved treatment can be used several times per year.
Best Candidates for BOTOX?
The best candidates for BOTOX® are those who are unhappy with the facial wrinkles in the upper portion of the face, such as the forehead, crows feet or frown lines. BOTOX® is suitable for anyone seeking a nonsurgical approach to rejuvenated skin.
BOTOX® treatments are very common in our dermatology practice and most patients are in and out within 30 minutes. BOTOX® is administered through a fine needle directly into the facial areas. The dosage varies depending on the condition of the skin and how much wrinkling is visible. BOTOX® is an outpatient procedure and after treatment, patients can immediately go back to their daily routines.
What to Expect with BOTOX
After a BOTOX® treatment, patients can expect some minor swelling and redness at the injection sites. This goes away quickly and is generally not noticeable within about an hour after the treatment. Exercise should be avoided or limited within the first 18-24 hours, and patients should sleep upright the first night. The results following a BOTOX® treatment are not immediate. It generally takes about 7 days for patients to see their smoother, softer complexion begin to appear. At our Dermatology offices, our patients love their results so much, they come back every quarter to get retreated so that they can maintain their gorgeous results.
Expected Cost of BOTOX
The average cost of BOTOX® can range between $250 - $500 depending on the areas treated. The amount of BOTOX® used will vary by patient; some patients will only choose to treat one area (forehead), while others may treat 2-3 (frown lines, crows feet), which will increase the overall cost. During the initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin and determine how much BOTOX® should be used to attain your desired results.
