"Ive been in to see Dr Garcia three times and my experiences have been consistantly excellent. I have never waited more than five minutes to be taken to the exam room. The Dr’s assistant or nurse attends to you immediately and a moment later Dr Garcia comes in. She listened to my concerns and actually recommended a treatment that was significantly less expensive than the one I was there for. Dr Garcia has performed Botox, Volbella and removed a chicken pox scar that has affected my self esteem for over 30 years. I highly recommend Dr Garcia every chance I get and will continue to be her patient."- L.A. / Demandforce / May 04, 2018
"I absolutely love this clinic. I mostly see PA Daniella for laser treatments and I always enjoy our visits. She’s incredibly caring about her patients and very professional providing immediate feedback and results when the labs come in. I’ve seen Dr. Groff for mole removal which turned out to be precancerous and will be seeing Dr. Garcia for some Botox in the near future. Anti-aging, here I come!"- H.R. / Facebook / Jun 13, 2019
"I had a appointment on August 14, 20 with Dr. Moore. My appointment was at 2:30, the office was clean was taken to my room promptly. I waited for a while before he came in which is understable it seemed like he was busy. When he came into the room he took his time & we both went over my concerns & I went ahead and did the botox on my chin & the lip flip for my desired expectations, the procedure itself was fast & painless. It's been a few days now & I see a subtle change, cant wait to see the full result. Over all Dr. Moore was efficient, great bed side manor, the staff at check in, medical assistant & check out were all amazing."- N.C. / Google / Aug 18, 2020
"Dr. Moore is wonderful. His recommendations are realistic and he doesn’t oversell. He’s patient, a great listener, and a sure hand with injections. I am so thrilled with the results of my Botox and fillers. He’s a sorcerer, that’s all!"- L.E. / Facebook / Dec 14, 2020
"Annabelle and her team are so amazing and make me feel so comfortable. I’ve been so happy with my results from Botox and overall checkups. I highly recommend anyone from Sonterra Dermatology."- A.E. / Google / Feb 26, 2021
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.
