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." 

"Over 7.4 million Botulinum Toxin Type A procedures were performed in 2018"

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.

Different areas targeted by BOTOX

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

At Lake Area Dentistry, BOTOX Cosmetic costs $11 per unit. 

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.

Attending Your Consultation

At Lake Area Dentistry, we have a reputation for being honest and educating our patients. Before performing any treatments, we will learn about you, your needs, and your goals to determine whether BOTOX is the right choice.

Planning the Injection Sites

One of our doctors will ask you to perform various facial expressions to determine where the BOTOX injections are needed. As trained dentists, we have a unique understanding of your facial muscles and can expertly plan your treatment.

Injecting the Botulinum Toxin

Using a very fine needle, one of our doctors will inject the botulinum toxin into various facial muscles. The process only takes a few minutes. To ensure your comfort, we will administer a topical numbing cream prior to treatment.

Enjoying Your Results

Your results will be in full effect approximately two weeks after your treatment. The effects of BOTOX last anywhere from three to four months. When the results begin to fade, you should return to our Lake Charles, and DeQuincy office for a touch-up treatment.

Tips for Your Recovery

With proper preparation and aftercare, you can enjoy smoother skin and rejuvenated features for up to four months. To help your results last as long as possible: 

  • Avoid alcohol and smoking
  • Do not touch or rub your face
  • Refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications
  • Protect your skin from the sun

You should also contact our Lake Charles and DeQuincy offices to schedule regular maintenance appointments.
