botox depression treatmentBotox is arguably the most widely popular non-surgical anti-aging treatment in the world today. Ever since the Botox treatment was approved by the FDA in 2002 for cosmetic reduction of wrinkles and fine lines from certain areas of the face, it has been used by millions of patients with excellent results.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a premier provider of Botox treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other areas. The med spa provides a range of latest non-invasive and minimally invasive aesthetic solutions in a state of the art, safe, and friendly environment.

New Information on Botox

Rejuvenate Medical Spa strives to remain updated with the latest advancements, innovations, and discoveries in the field of aesthetic enhancement. Dr. Farah likes to apprise his patients with relevant latest developments in the field in order to help them make well-informed choices. One of the newest discoveries about Botox has been outlined in a new book on Botox, which The New York Times has praised as the “first authorized biography” of Botox. The book looks into a unique aspect of how a traditionally aesthetic treatment could in fact be a cure for depression.

The book titled “In the Face of Emotion” suggests that up to 50 percent of all wrinkle-reduction procedures such as Botox can substantially improve moods of a person, as well as their relationships with others. Botox is a widely used injectable anti-aging procedure, which can achieve wrinkle reduction for a period of up to six months with a single treatment and make a person appear younger. The interesting new fact about Botox is that in additional to achieving a more youthful looking face, it might also make the patient become free of any signs of depression.

Relationship between Muscles and Emotions

Dr. Farah has seen in his experience with numerous patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other areas at his med spa about how a Botox treatment may help cheer up a patient more than before. Now scientists are linking this phenomenon to actual, physical reduction of facial lines and wrinkles.

Frown muscles on the forehead are response for lines and wrinkles in the area. At the same time, these are also expression lines that may express typical negative emotions of anger, distress, fear, and sadness. When a Botox treatment is applied on the frown lines, the patient cannot physically form the expressions required to portray these negative emotions. The frown causing muscles have been temporarily paralyzed, and any formation of negative expression on the forehead is rendered impossible.

Darwin’s Theory

A theory by Charles Darwin, dating back to the 17th century, suggested that facial muscles are not just responsible for the expression of emotion, but they also play a role in how a person experiences and perceives those emotions. Darwin argued that if a human being limits the illustration of such feelings, the physical response to such feelings will also reduce. In other words, if the expression of frowning can be reduced, then the feeling and experience of sadness or anger will also be reduced in turn.

 

Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides outstanding, awesome, and cutting edge anti-aging and other non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Led by Dr. Bijan Farah, the med spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding areas. Rejuvenate also employs state of the art laser technologies to provide innovative treatments for hair loss for both men and women.

Low Level Laser Therapy

One of the safest and most effective treatments for hair restoration is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). This is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that does not involve any pain and discomfort, and provides positive results. Both men and women who are bothered by their condition of hair loss may consider this treatment.

A low level laser refers to a ‘soft’ or ‘cold’ laser that does not emit any significant heat, sound, or vibration. While high intensity surgical lasers are designed to vaporize or burn targeted tissue, but low level lasers will not cause any aggressive tissue invasion or injury because they do not generate heat.

Convenient and Painless Treatment

Rejuvenate Medical Spa has adopted LLLT treatment approach to hair loss because of its inherent benefits of safety, convenience and comfort for the patients. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby areas can receive this advanced anti-aging treatment at the med spa under the supervision of Dr. Farah. The facility is equipped with the Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation Laser system. This is an innovative system that has perfected the low level laser emission technology, which makes hair restoration process simple and convenient.

The patient can simply sit back and relax underneath the device while the treatment is performed. The Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation is a pain-free solution for the problem of hair loss as well as hair thinning. The treatment involves no downtime, which makes it ideal for busy and working people. Medical studies have indicated that low level laser therapy with the Sunetics Laser system produce more significant results over a shorter period of time compared to any other low energy laser device.

Proven Efficacy

Sunetics laser technology received the FDA clearance in June 2013 for effective treatment for both male and female pattern hair loss. In the clinical trials conducted for FDA clearance, it showed that 93 percent of patient subjects who were treated with low level laser therapy achieved hair re-growth at an average of 22 hairs per sq. cm. LLLT has demonstrated efficacy in achieving stability and sustainability of hair over the entire scalp. It has shown proven success in the re-growth of hair in both the temporal and front areas of the scalp, where medications such as Propecia and Rogain may prove to be less effective.

Clinical tests have shown that LLLT improves blood supply from dermis to the hair follicle. It stimulates up to 70 percent of ‘resting’ hairs back into active growth cycle, stops progressive hair loss, and enhances the natural strength and elasticity of hair. Hair follicles are augmented, providing the patient with thicker, fuller, shinier, and softer hair. Hair shaft quality is also enhanced and repaired.
