Many people have no idea that some dentists can provide BOTOX® treatments. Woodcreek Dental Care is proud to be one of the few dentists who do provide BOTOX® services in SW Calgary.
BOTOX, or botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxin that cosmetic specialists and dentists use to erase wrinkles and other lines in the face. It’s a cosmetic procedure like braces or teeth whitening. Woodcreek Dental Care wants nothing more than for you to be satisfied with your appearance, so we offer BOTOX treatments in addition to other dental and cosmetic procedures.
If you live in SW Calgary or the surrounding areas, BOTOX treatments are easily accessible. Woodcreek Dental Care offers one-stop appointments along with the professional care and information available.

How It Works
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
A well-studied treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
Derived from sources that exist in nature
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
A treatment experienced by millions of people
Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world. (Data collected through June 2014.)
What should I expect with treatment?
Real, noticeable results
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes
Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
You’ll look like yourself — only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.
Return to your daily routine
Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
