Four Points Dermatology, now part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, will host the third annual Botox for Babes fundraiser. Proceeds from the event will benefit the pediatric intensive care unit at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas in Austin.
Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Roopal Bhatt began fundraising in 2013, but officially started the “Botox for Babes” event in 2015, due to her personal connection with Dell Children’s Medical Center.
In June 2013, Bhatt, a resident of River Place, was taking a walk with her daughter Sapna and son Devan, near the entrance of River Place when an SUV apparently took the corner too fast in wet conditions, flipped the car on its side and jumped the curb and hit all three family members. Her children were airlifted to Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas for treatment. Devan’s pelvis and leg were broken. Sapna suffered a fractured skull, leg and arm and required life support after she began hemorrhaging.
This year the event will feature special guests professional football player, Cullen Loeffler who played at The University of Texas Austin and then became the Long Snapper for the Minnesota Vikings. Dell Children’s Pediatric Neurosurgeon Dr. Mark Lee will also be in attendance. Dr. Lee’s team saved Bhatt’s daughter Sapna four years ago.
Thanks to generous donations of community sponsors such as Allergan and staff donation of time, patients can get “free” Botox with a suggested donation of $129 in exchange for 20 units of Botox — 50% off regular pricing. Any additional units or secondary fillers will be sold at regular price. All proceeds from the event will be donated. In total, the annual event has raised almost $25,000 so far.
