The Appearance of Age & Youth

BOTOX® is a muscle relaxer and the most performed, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in North America. BOTOX® comes in the form of a purified protein and is traditionally injected into facial muscles, causing them to relax rather than contract. Muscle contractions are what cause facial wrinkles.
BOTOX®, through a process called cosmetic denervation, is injected into muscles that tense up and cause wrinkles. BOTOX® blocks some of the transmitters in the muscles, preventing them from contracting and essentially causing them to relax.
The needle that is used to inject BOTOX® is tiny, and its sting is minimal. The entire process is practically painless, so no anesthesia is needed, and most of our patients are awake during treatment. However, if you are anxious or extra sensitive, we are happy to administer an inhalational anesthesia to ensure you are completely comfortable.
Botox has cosmetic benefits that compliment and even enhance many oral treatments, smoothing wrinkles around the lips and highlighting new teeth. However, BOTOX® can also be used to ease chronic facial pain and the intensity of muscle contractions. Our doctors may suggest BOTOX® be used to treat TMJ, jaw clenching, and teeth grinding.
Dermal fillers—made of hydraulic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body—add volume, lifting cheeks, smoothing lines, and plumping lips. Fillers can be used for high lip line cases, asymmetrical lips around the mouth, and lip enhancement and augmentation. As part of our comprehensive aesthetic evaluation, Dr. Michael Malmquist is ready to explore potential treatment options with you.
Oral surgeons have had more advanced training in the oral and maxillofacial areas than most doctors. The face is where we live every day! In addition to extensive education related to the face, our daily in-office experience guarantees our proficiency in facial injections as well as our first-hand knowledge of facial muscle function.
