What is Botox?

Botox is a toxin that is harvested from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. If used in small quantities and under the supervision of a qualified expert, Botox can be used to reduce the signs of aging and recover our youthful appearance.

Botox is an FDA-approved procedure for treatment on the forehead and around the eyes. In addition to addressing aesthetic concerns, Botox has also received FDA approval as a treatment for migraines, urinary leakage, hyperhidrosis and spasticity.

How is Botox treatment provided?

Botox is provided in the form of injections. First, our cosmetic professionals at Synergy MedAesthetics will evaluate your specific needs. Botox injections are relatively painless, if needed, a numbing agent may be used to make the procedure more comfortable.

A small vial is filled with Botox and then the toxin is injected in small quantities into each treatment area. The Botox reduces the appearance of signs of aging by blocking the neural stimuli which cause muscle contraction.

Normally, neural messages pass between the brain and your facial muscles, causing the muscles to contract and relax. This can, over time, cause your skin to become loose and sag in the form of wrinkles. When we inject the Botox into the treatment site, the toxin attaches itself to the neurons and stops any neural signals from passing between your brain and your facial tissues. This lack of stimulus will stop you from crinkling your skin and, in turn, smooth it out completely. Contact us to learn more about Botox in Yakima.

Botox for hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition of excessive sweating. If you have been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis, we can help. Here, Botox works on the same principle as with cosmetic treatments. The toxin blocks the neural signals that stimulate sweating, thereby reducing your discomfort, increasing your confidence and allowing you to look and feel better. Feel free to speak to us to know more about Botox for hyperhidrosis.

After the Botox treatment

The treated areas will be swollen and slightly bruised for a few hours. You can return to your normal routine immediately after the procedure at our Yakima med spa in Washington State. However, avoid lying down, sleeping or bending down for at least four hours to prevent the Botox injection from moving out of place.

You should also stop touching your face, rubbing it or undergoing any facial massage for the next few days. This will allow the Botox to settle into your face and start acting.

How long do results last?

You will start to notice the results of the Botox treatment about a week after the procedure. But the full results will come in after a month or two. Botox results stay for 4-6 months, depending on how well you take care of your skin. You will need to come in for a repeat Botox injection once you notice that the lines and wrinkles are becoming very visible again.

At Synergy MedAesthetics, we are always here to help you regain your natural, youthful appearance. Visit our med spa for the best Botox in Yakima.
