How does Botox treat depression?

When you are feeling down, it can be clearly seen in your facial expression. Many of us have childhood memories being told to ‘turn a frown upside down’, but can your facial expression affect how you feel?

Physical ways Botox can help depression

How can you use Botox® for depression? A study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research tested subjects with Botox® injected into the facial areas most commonly connected to low mood. The subjects were suffering from long-term depression but unconcerned with how they looked. Many of them claimed they never would have considered Botox® to improve their appearance. The research concluded that Botox® still improved the mood of the test subjects. This is because the injection of botulinum toxin relaxed the ‘frowning’ muscles and reduces the negative emotional signals transmitted to the brain.

Psychological ways Botox  treats depression

So, we understand Botox® in Bournemouth helps alleviate depression physically but what about psychologically? How we feel about our physical appearance can have a significant effect on our self-esteem. Most people will confirm that when they look good, they feel better and more confident. We find many of our clients feel Botox® smooths out their insecurities (as well as their wrinkles!). If you are feeling self-conscious about your laughter lines or those deep lines between your brows, wrinkle treatments can help reduce your concerns and feel better daily.

What are MD Codes?

MD Codes were created in Brazil by international aesthetic expert, Dr Maurico de Maio. He created a precise system to help aesthetic practitioners inject the correct type of dermal fillers in specific areas of the face to achieve an optimal and natural-looking rejuvenation.

This customised dermal filler treatment is designed especially for you. The Code system enables aesthetic practitioners to create bespoke treatments which complement your exact facial structure and proportions.

Treatment can also be optimised to your budget, by treatment happening in stages. If you are looking for a cost-effective treatment focussing on just the eye area, Austin Brewer can plan an MD Code treatment suited to your requirements.

MD Codes for wrinkle treatments

As an innovative dermal filler technique, MD Codes may be strategically placed to both counter signs of aging in the face and complement the natural facial composition of the individual. Your wrinkle treatment will rejuvenate sagging or wrinkled areas but will leave you with a natural expression.

Which areas of the face are treated?

The MD Codes can be applied anywhere over the whole facial area. There are a total of 75 MD Codes to troubleshoot target areas, such as the cheeks, jawline, chin, forehead, brow line, eye area and the lips.

Are MD Codes safe?

The MD Code method is a form of guidelines for aesthetic practitioners. This methodical system ensures patients are benefitting from the safest and most effective form of cosmetic treatment. The dermal fillers we use in our skin clinic in Bournemouth are of the highest quality hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the human body. Dermal fillers and lip fillers cause only a slight, temporary discomfort.
