"Dr. Snyder is amazing! She really knows her field. My husband and I both see her. I go for yearly check-ups and basic facial needs. My husband has a rare skin disease that is only treatable, not curable. He requires constant maintenance. Dr. Snyer has been incredibly knowledgable with treatments. Also, if you are in need of an anesthetician see Jessica."- C.W. / ZocDoc / Feb 03, 2014

"I sought the advice of Dr. Snyder for cosmetic concerns. I’m middle aged with facial laxity and mild hollowness and wanted advice and treatment recommendations. I’d had botox and such in the past but was ready to do something a little more impactful. My end goal was to treat my areas that bothered me while still looking natural and my age. I was not a face lift candidate but wanted to improve the texture and skin sagging I was noticing at 45. Dr. Snyder walked me through all of my options and recommended a Eurothreading treatment to address my specific issues. She took so much care and time explaining the procedure and mapping out what her plan was day of treatment. I had my threading treatment done by Dr. Snyder a few days after our consult and it was a great experience. My results were immediate and amazing and so so natural. Everyone has told me how great I look and no one has asked me if I had something done because I do not look like I’ve had something done! That was absolutely my end goal. Dr. Snyder is truly an expert at what she does and I could not be more pleased with my results."- T.C. / Yelp / Jul 30, 2021
Types of Facials
At Snyder Dermatology, we offer many types of facial treatments including:
- Express Facial

During a facial treatment
A facial treatment consists of a thorough cleansing of the skin. Depending on which facial you choose, most of our facials start with a light dermablading process to smoothen the skin, such as removing the layer of facial hair that often forms on the surface. The facial will clean the skin, followed by an exfoliation and steaming process, and will end with the application of a facial mask, a toner, and moisturizer. All patients will leave their appointment with SPF so the skin is protected from the sun. During the facial treatment, our aesthetician will often perform a gentle shoulder and chest massage while our patients relax during treatment. The average facial takes about 30 – 45 minutes to complete.
What to Expect
Many of our dermatology patients experience some skin sensitivity after the facial process, and report that it feels like a mild sunburn on the face. While many are able to return to their normal activities and reapply makeup immediately afterwards, there are some patients that will experience some mild redness for a short period, which usually lasts 2 – 24 hours, and can be soothed with cold compressions.
You can expect sunspots to darken after the facial treatment, then naturally shed from the skin within 1 – 2 weeks. Skin tone will be more even and smooth, with less pronounced redness within a week after treatment. Blood vessels may disappear after treatment or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10 – 14 days.
Once you have a facial, we recommend getting on a routine treatment schedule so that your face remains clean and clear year-round. In addition, we can offer you a product line to use at home to compliment your treatment. These professional grade products will enhance your skin in between facials at our dermatology office. We can give recommendations on which products to use per skin type, and also suggest the right type of makeup to match your skin tone and avoid breakouts.
