How Botox Can Help You in The Fight Against Depression

botox-nyc

Have you heard the saying, ‘fake it until you make it?’

 

There is certainly a large degree of truth in this, and when it comes to faking happiness until you really begin to feel its sunshine effects, this is an avenue you should explore.

 

If you have suffered with depression, either for a long time or a short time, then you won’t need anyone to tell you about how it feels; you will know that depression is no fun, it is a dark and upsetting time, and if you have anxiety on top of this, then the whole world is simply a very upsetting place to be.

 

Of course, there are many treatment options to help you if you do suffer from depression, and the first port of call is always to ask for help. This is the hardest step to make, and one which will take courage and strength, but by picking up the phone and calling us here at (800) 385-3905 at Trifecta Health Medical Center, we can help you take the first steps towards the road to recovery.

 

Trifecta Health has helped countless New York residents over the years with depression and anxiety problems, and as a result, we are proud of our achievements. We are also one of the leaders in treatments which may be considered a little different, e.g. thinking outside the box a little. Who said that you need to do things which make logical sense all the time? Sometimes having the bravery to put yourself in the shoes of someone suffering from the condition can be the best way to figure out how to get out of it – and this is where the expert knowledge of Dr. Edward Fruitman, M.D. comes in to play!

 

Dr. Fruitman recognized the correlation between patients who were suffering from anxiety and depression, and the fact that many of them had a deep-seated dislike for the way they appeared in the mirror, e.g. body image issues or not liking their appearance. Now, once this problem was altered, their feelings of depression often began to lift, because the body reacts either positively or negatively to events. So, if a patient was upset about the ageing process, perhaps with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Dr. Fruitman suggested that perhaps undergoing Botox injections, to get rid of those wrinkles and lines, could help lift the feelings of darkness.

 

Of course, this worked in many cases, because paralyzing the muscles which give you the ability to frown means that you have no other option but to smile! Fake a smile and you will feel it eventually, because your mindset will change, and if you can get rid of those lines which have caused you distress, you won’t have a reason to frown anyway!

 

It sounds complicated, but it’s really not.

 

You are basically kick-starting a snowball effect, fake a smile until you feel it, fake happiness until you feel it, and once the snowball begins to roll, it can quickly turn into an avalanche!

What Does Botox Do?

As we age, wrinkles and creases tend to develop on the face. These frown lines can make you look mad, weary or gloomy, and often make your appearance older than you feel.

The key cause of wrinkles and creases are over-active muscles in your glabellar area. That is where Botox is injected to enhance and relax your appearance. Improved look, sense of real self, vitality and younger appearance can all be achieved through the use of Botox, which has proven to be an extremely safe and effective technique.

What Botox is also used for?

  • Jaw reduction (Slim Face) – gives one a softer and more visually pleasing appearance
  • Calf muscle reduction – gives a thinner appearance to the calf area
  • TMD ( Bruxism) – this aching ailment causes irritation in the jaw area and often lead to teeth grinding and pain in the jaw area. We can help here at Trifecta Med Spa in NYC by using Botox to relax the jaw (masseter) muscle and dramatically reduce the effect of this disorder.
  • Extreme sweating ( hyperhidrosis) – Botox is effectively used for excessive sweating by blocking the release of acetylcholine, thus causing sweat glands to stop producing sweat. Around 20-25 minor injections to the underarm area effectively reduces sweating by up to 90% within 2 days period, lasting up to 10 month, or even longer.

botox-doctor-nycThe active ingredient in Botox and other similar products such as Dysport and Xeomin is onabotulinumtoxin A- a naturally occurring protein that eases over tightened muscles. Botox injected to relax the muscles that cause moderate to severe wrinkles.

First results typically start to occur 5 to 7 days after injection, and usually last anywhere between 90 to 120 days. Thus, maintenance injections are needed to maintain the desired effect. Side effects are very uncommon, and the usual are minor swelling, light bruising and some redness at the injection site.

Most popular Botox treatment areas are: the glabella area (frown lines), forehead horizontal lines and at the crow’s feet (zone around the eyes).

Regardless of the fact that cosmetic injections of Botox are FDA approved only for the glabella and crow’s feet and any other use is considered off label the popularity of Botox in among American consumers is growing every year.

Enormously popular nowadays, Botox has rapidly become the most popular cosmetic treatment in the USA, and it usually takes about 10-15 minutes for the procedure of Botox, Xeomin to be done at Trifecta Med Spa in  NYC, and you can go home with results lasting up to 120 days, depending on your individual factors.

In the result you will get a radically more youthful look, and increased self-confidence. First results occur around 5-7 days after the injection, and last around 90-120 days, with repeating injections needed regularly to keep your younger looking appearance intact.
