Here we talk about the effects stress can have on our skin and what treatments such as Botox at Encorė Cosmetic Clinic can help…
If emotions are powerful, then consider stress to be the evil leader of them all. Stress can have a very negative impact on your health. The chemicals which stress releases in your body can be tied to many serious diseases. When you are feeling stressed, it is often evident in the way that you look. However there are treatments such as Botox that can help!
After a late night of preparing for an important meeting or worrying about life events, you can wake up to problem skin. It may seem like complete nonsense that your mother told you so that you would stop worrying, but stress does have a large effect on your skin.
It has been known for a long time that the nervous system, which processes our stress has an impact on conditions such as psoriasis. Psoriasis and other skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea and acne are also made worse by stress and can result in more frequent, and greater breakouts. Often, the effects of stress turn into a vicious cycle of outbreaks, stress as a result of the outbreaks and so on. It has a snowball effect.
Not only does stress aggravate pre-existing skin conditions but it can also make you look a lot older then what you really are. Stress produces adrenaline and cortisol, which then signal the body to free sugar molecules that will provide you with the energy needed to fight off the “threat”. These molecules wind up stiffening the collagen in your skin and face, leaving you with a harder, dull complexion, which can also lead to wrinkles and skin that appears sunken in.
The key to reversing the effects of what stress has on your appearance is stopping it before it has a chance to affect you. This however is not always practical. After all, if it was that easy to stop worrying, then nobody would experience stress in the first place! Activities such as yoga and meditation help you to burn off steam and focus on what is right in front of you. There are some things however you can do to treat the signs of stress in the meantime.
For starters, Botox™ and Dysport™ are used to treat lines, and dermal fillers can help to restore the plump look that your face loses over time as a result of natural aging and stress. Encorė Cosmetic Clinic can target the signs of aging and sun damage and effectively provide a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance with our Forever Young BBL. Forever Young BBL™ is an innovative IPL technology that uniquely delivers light therapy to the skin.
