How Does Botox® Cosmetic Work?
Moderate to severe frown lines between your brows form over time as a result of muscle activity. To address this problem, Botox® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles between your brows and works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces the activity of the muscles that caused those persistent lines to form.
If you are looking to rejuvenate your appearance, tackle the signs of aging, bring back volume to your face, or even treat excessive sweating, Botox® is definitely the right treatment for you.

Before & After
When Will I See Results from a Botox® Cosmetic Treatment?
Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to 4 months.
Is Treatment with Botox® Cosmetic Painful?
Most patients say no. The needles are tiny and barely felt by most patients. If you do feel discomfort, it is usually minimal and brief. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Many people return directly to work or to normal activity following Botox® Cosmetic treatment.
Do Treatment Results Differ?
To get the best results, it’s important to go to a practitioner who is experienced in administering Botox® Cosmetic. Our medical professionals are MDs, PA-Cs and RNs. Our staff have years of experience in administering this treatment and undergo annual advanced technique training at the top medical aesthetic conferences in the country. That is why we can say we offer what is arguably the best treatment of Botox Tri-Cities and Kennewick can offer.
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you look more rested, refreshed and youthful.
Botox for Men
Most men are not open to conversation about signs of aging. Even today, it is deemed quite unusual for men to openly talk about getting facial enhancement procedures. The signs of aging do not discriminate between men and women, which is why our Kennewick Botox® can be a highly beneficial treatment for men as well.
Men usually fear that Botox® injections will make their face look frozen and unnatural, which is definitely not the case. When administered by an experienced professional, Botox® injections can treat fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face, giving you a much more youthful appearance. Botox® can also be used to create more volume and symmetry on the face, giving a chiseled and enhanced look.
What Can I Address with Botox?
One of the most important things we keep in mind while using Botox® on men is to target the right facial muscles. For men, Botox® is most effective when it is administered around the eyes and on the forehead. We can also combine Botox® with dermal fillers in order to give a natural plumpness to the skin, which will make you look rejuvenated.
Men can receive Botox® treatments regardless of their age, their skin type, or their appearance. In fact, we treat male patients as young as 30, and as old as 60. Our specialists at Synergy MedAesthetics will give you a thorough consultation, during which they will address any concerns you may have, while also choosing the best treatment for you. You can receive your Botox® in the Tri-Cities the same day as your consultation.
Botox® for Hyperhidrosis
People who live in hot and humid climates must definitely be familiar with sweating, especially in the daytime. While sweating is normal, too much of it can cause unnecessary embarrassment for people. Whether it is sweat droplets on your face, unsightly sweat marks on your clothes, or an unpleasant smell, excessive sweating is definitely not desirable.
The condition in human beings that causes excessive sweating is called hyperhidrosis. This condition can be limited to certain areas of the body like the hands and feet, or show up all over the body. Many people find this condition to be quite upsetting and socially isolating, causing them to become withdrawn from their day-to-day lives.
Luckily, Botox® is an excellent solution for treating symptoms of hyperhidrosis. The botulinum toxin in Botox® injections works to block the nerve signals that cause sweating. As these nerve signals become inhibited, it stops the sweat glands in the body from producing too much sweat. The nerves in these areas regenerate every few months, which is why frequent touch-up treatments are required to tackle the problem effectively. Once the patient has undergone enough treatments, they can go on for several months to a year without the need for re-treatments.
The procedure for treating hyperhidrosis with Botox® is quite simple. Our medical experts at Synergy MedAesthetics are knowledgeable and experienced with treatments of Botox in Kennewick. Our specialist will first apply a numbing cream to the area which is left on for an hour or so. Next, a tiny needle with the Botox formula will be injected into all the target areas. You may feel slight swelling or tenderness, but this will subside very soon.
You will be able to see the complete results of the treatment in about two weeks, as you will notice your sweating to be considerably controlled.
