BOTOX Specialist Dr. Malhotra
If you’re concerned that your wrinkles and fine lines are making you look aged, tense, or tired, BOTOX Cosmetic may be perfect for you. Michigan plastic surgeon Dr. Malhotra, a BOTOX specialist, has helped countless Ann Arbor and Jackson women and men refresh and rejuvenate their appearance with this simple, safe treatment.
Frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases, lip lines, marionette lines — you’ve heard the terms and perhaps seen these lines on your own face, but do you know that most of these kinds of lines and wrinkles are caused by the repetitive contraction of certain facial muscles? By inactivating those muscles, BOTOX can lead to smoother-looking skin, helping you look more well rested, relaxed, and youthful.
BOTOX is widely available in Michigan, but not everyone administers it well. Although it can be a simple procedure, outstanding aesthetic results require precision and skill to avoid an unnatural look. Dr. Malhotra’s approach to BOTOX for all his Michigan patients is skilled and sensible: He believes that the ideal treatment achieves a balance between softening wrinkles and preserving your own natural facial expression.

BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world, a status it enjoys because of its ease of use, safety record, and natural-looking results. If you are considering BOTOX® Cosmetic, Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery’s Dr. Pramit Malhotra encourages you to do your homework and choose a trusted provider. Since so many people want this injectable, it seems that everyone from dentists to salons have started offering it, making it available far and wide—though not always from injectors who focus solely on beauty and aesthetics.
The truth is that BOTOX® Cosmetic is so much more than a few injections. Each patient is different, with unique facial anatomy, wrinkles, and desired outcomes. In addition, many patients often want an overall refreshed appearance, which typically involves more than just the application of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dermal fillers, chemical peels, and a variety of other treatments may be used to great effect, with results that complement each other and enhance a patient’s natural beauty. Dr. Malhotra brings years of experience, as well as a focus on aesthetics and beauty, to every session, demonstrating an understanding of what treatments will best work together to safely deliver beautiful results to each individual.
*Patient results may vary.
In our Jackson and Ann Arbor offices, BOTOX is administered after a numbing cream is applied to the injection site. A special, ultra-thin needle is used to reduce any discomfort. For the first treatment with BOTOX, most of our Michigan patients are surprised to find that it is easier and more comfortable than they initially thought. Often your first injection will require more medication than repeat injections, and its effects will last approximately 3 months. As Dr. Malhotra gets to know each individual, he frequently uses a little less medication for subsequent injections, and the interval between treatments can lengthen to 4 to 6 months.
Best Injection Sites
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments may improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles throughout the top portion of the face. Eyes, forehead, upper lip, and nose are among the most responsive injection sites. The eye area is also so responsive to treatments that it can be used for a non-surgical eyebrow lift. An educated and skilled BOTOX specialist like Michigan plastic surgeon Dr. Malhotra can lift the tail of your eyebrow a few millimeters without surgery.
BOTOX treatments address many problem areas that can make people look aged, tense, or tired:
- Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead wrinkles or creases
- Crow’s feet around the outer eye corners
- Vertical lines on the upper lip
- Prominent jaw muscles (Masseter), which give the face a square look
These areas can be made smooth again through one quick, simple procedure in our Jackson or Ann Arbor office. BOTOX works by relaxing the muscles responsible for facial expression. Treatments typically last for 3 to 4 months; however, many patients choose to receive them less frequently. While your face is one of your most prominent means of non-verbal communication, expressions like the furrowing of the brows can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Relaxing these muscles can virtually erase these lines. And, although the medication is mainly used to erase wrinkles, people as young as their 20s are now using it as a preventive measure against future wrinkles.
Is BOTOX Safe for Our Ann Arbor and Jackson Patients?
BOTOX is perfectly safe for most candidates. Patients who elect to receive BOTOX in our Michigan offices understand that it is not a permanent procedure, and they may have to return for repeated treatments to achieve their desired result. Also, they understand that because it is a non-surgical treatment, they have realistic expectations of what it can and cannot do for them. After 2 years, patients find that they can decrease the frequency of their injections. To discuss your individual situation, schedule an appointment with Dr. Malhotra, a Jackson and Ann Arbor BOTOX specialist.
Ideal BOTOX Candidates
BOTOX is the ideal treatment for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles without surgery. Men and women in their 20s and up can benefit from the wrinkle-reducing properties of this increasingly popular treatment. Unlike some injectable treatments, it does not require an allergy test, meaning virtually everyone is a candidate. If you would like to find out how refreshed your face can look with just a single treatment, contact us today.
This is a simple 15-minute office procedure. The only restriction after your treatment is that you do not vigorously massage the area for 48 hours. You may wash your face and apply make up directly following treatment. Because of the effortless aftercare, many of our patients schedule their appointment during their lunch hour.

Alternatives to BOTOX for Michigan Patients
BOTOX is not the only product on the market. Dysport, its main competitor, is also safe and effective. In fact, Dysport can cover a larger treatment area, often giving a better result in the forehead area.
If you would like to find other treatments to help smooth your fine lines and wrinkles, remember to ask Dr. Malhotra about dermal fillers such as JUVEDERM and Restylane, as well as quality skincare products that can help you pamper your way to better skin.
Dr. Malhotra and BOTOX®
Dr. Malhotra is board certified in both plastic surgery and otolaryngology, which focuses on the head and neck: specifically the ears, nose, and throat. Board certification is a voluntary process that requires doctors to undergo rigorous study and examination, holding them to the highest standards in the field.
This dual certification provides detailed anatomical insight, giving Dr. Malhotra an edge when he meets patients seeking a cosmetic treatment for their face. His years of experience with everything from facial skin to underlying musculature, tissues, and bone allow him to approach each case with a deep understanding of how the various facial features and elements work together, which is crucial for both continued patient health and the best possible results. This is especially true for BOTOX®, which is injected directly into carefully selected muscles to temporarily prevent them from contracting.
While a depth of medical knowledge is necessary for anyone seeking to administer BOTOX®, the doctor must also have an eye for aesthetics. Dr. Malhotra puts particular emphasis on taking a balanced, measured approach to treatments in order to avoid an “overdone” appearance. The goal is not to radically change your face, but to soften wrinkles and gently smooth out key areas to give you a naturally refreshed and rejuvenated look.
Patients who choose Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery for their BOTOX® Cosmetic injections will still be able to show the range of emotions they typically do. You can smile, frown, laugh, and scowl, knowing that telltale wrinkles aren’t forming on your forehead or next to your eyes with every expression.
