Dalton Police Department Investigates Theft Of Botox And Juvederm

Thursday, May 15, 2014

The Dalton Police Department is investigating the theft of Botox and Juvederm from an area dental practice. At this time, investigators are withholding details of the theft, but are asking people who may have been injected with treatments of Botox or Juvederm outside of a medical practice setting to contact police.

Botox is a medication that reduces facial wrinkles by reducing the movement of facial muscles. Juvederm is a gel filler that is injected to smooth out facial wrinkles around the mouth.  Besides being used for cosmetic purposes, both are sometimes used by dentists to inhibit jaw clenching and teeth grinding. Both medications can only be legally injected by licensed and approved physicians in a clinical setting. 

A large quantity of both products was stolen from a Dalton area dental practice and DPD investigators believe the stolen drugs are being used for cosmetic injections by someone who is not a licensed physician. 

Anyone who believes they may have received injections of Botox or Juvederm from someone other than an approved physician is asked to contact Detective Chris Tucker at 706 278-9085, ext. 165.
