BOTOX Injections Are Increasingly Popular with Our Patients
Each year, millions of patients receive BOTOX injections. According to American Family Physician, "Botulinum toxin injection for treatment of facial wrinkles is the most frequently performed cosmetic procedure in the United States."
In its 2018 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons released data showing that over 7.4 million Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) procedures were performed that year.
Address Multiple Signs of Aging at Once
BOTOX can address various signs of aging, including:
- Frown lines
- Crow's feet
- Forehead lines
- Bunny lines
- Smoker's lines
Although BOTOX can address fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contraction, it cannot "fill in" existing wrinkles. If you need to fill creases and folds, a dermal filler such as JUVÉDERM® may be a better option. If drooping or sagging eyelids are among your concerns, you may be a better candidate for cosmetic surgery.
How Does BOTOX Work?
Wrinkles are caused by repeated contraction of facial muscles. Botulinum toxin is a powerful agent that causes botulism (muscle paralysis). It relaxes the underlying muscles, smoothing the skin and reducing signs of aging at the injection site. Botulinum toxin is also used in other brands like Dysport and Xeomin. Although botulinum toxin sounds dangerous, it is perfectly safe when administered in small doses by a trained professional.
How Much Do BOTOX Injections Cost?
Many patients are surprised when they discover that BOTOX is actually highly affordable. At Lake Area Dentistry, BOTOX Cosmetic costs $11 per unit.
Because BOTOX injections are considered cosmetic, they are not covered by insurance companies. To help cover out-of-pocket costs, we also accept financing through CareCredit® for qualifying patients.

Is BOTOX Dangerous?
BOTOX has a very low risk of side effects. After the procedure, some recipients may experience side effects such as:
- Minor bruising at the injection site
- Headache or nausea
- Temporary weakness
- Eyelid drooping
BOTOX is not recommended for men and women who are prone to keloidal scarring, those with neuromuscular disorders, or those with allergies to botulinum toxin. Before your procedure, we will screen you for preexisting disorders that could increase your risk of side effects.
By choosing a trusted provider like Lake Area Dentistry, you can protect yourself against dangerous side effects and ensure the best possible outcomes.
