How_Botox_Affects_Our_Moods

The book by Eric Finzi MD The Face of Emotion: How Botox Affects Our Moods and Relationships describes the effects of Botox on depression and the complex relationship between facial expression and emotion.

Furrowing the brow—or not furrowing the brow—could play a big role in depression. Studies have found that injecting Botox between the brows, thereby preventing someone from furrowing them, could actually alleviate depression. In a 2003 study, 9 in 10 patients reported fewer signs of depression after one treatment of Botox. While the exact mechanism that Botox acts on our emotional state is not known, presenting a happier face means your interactions with others will be more positive, and your facial expressions speak to your brain to influence your emotions.

We invite you for some Botox with Dr. Bassichis so you also can put on a happy face!

 

Beautifully yours,

Drs. Michelle and Benjamin Bassichis

Omega-3_Gorgeous

Dermatologists often recommend fish-oil supplements to treat acne and atopic dermatitis (a type of eczema) and even to help slow down the aging process. The omega-3 fatty acids in the oil take down inflammation, improve the skin’s lipid barrier, and actually help extend the lifespan of cells—improving the overall texture and tone of the skin. So enjoy some salmon or head to whole foods to get some omega-3’s!

Skincare_30’s_40’s

Generally, patients who are not seen for skin conditions in their teens or 20s will wait until outward signs of aging begin to appear before visiting a cosmetic surgeon. At that point, patients will generally focus on treatment, not prevention. When patients come for treatment of existing concerns, we educate them on preventing new problems. In their 30s, people come in for Botox, but there may also be signs of UV damage or pigment related to pregnancies. Lasers and skin treatments may be used for these reasons.

Patients in their 30s and 40s, especially those who had greater sun exposure will start to see skin wrinkling, sun damage and hyperpigmentation which will accelerate with age. To clear existing issues and prevent future damage, a comprehensive skincare regimen including peptides, retinoids and stem cell extracts can be recommended.

When patients enter their 40s, loss of facial volume accompanies can be addressed effectively with hyaluronic acid injectables such as Restylane or Juvederm to restore the facial volume that is lost with age. Professional aesthetic treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to superficial peels are also very beneficial to maintain the skin’s freshness in the 30’s and 40’s and beyond.
