Stress: who among us hasn’t experienced it? Especially given the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the ways it’s affected our lives, stress these days can seem ever present. April is Stress Awareness Month and it’s an important time to consider how stress plays a role in your life and what you can do to manage it.
As providers of modern rejuvenating aesthetic treatments, the entire team at Dr. Charles Chalekson’s practice knows the extent to which stress can affect your appearance. It may contribute to:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Bags and dark circles under your eyes
- Weight gain
- Gray hair
- Dull skin
- Skin redness and flushing
It’s not always that stress directly affects the way we look. But chronic stress leads to poor sleep, lack of energy, poor exercise and eating habits, lack of attention to a skincare routine, and other consequences. All of these things may be affecting your skin and body.
CAN YOU UNDO THE EFFECTS OF STRESS ON YOUR FACE AND BODY?
If you experience chronic stress, we certainly encourage you to take steps to reduce its presence in your life: exercise, eat well, practice self-care, get plenty of sleep, and feel empowered to say “no” to obligations and appointments that will only add to your stress. Consider talking to your doctor or a therapist about stress management.
If you are concerned about the effect stress is having on your appearance, you should know there is a wealth of treatments that can restore a vibrant appearance:
- BOTOX Cosmetic and Dypsort smooth frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines
- Dermal fillers like Juvederm fill in wrinkles caused by volume loss
- Eyelid surgery reduces sagging, puffy upper eyelids and bags beneath the eyes
- Hydrafacials renew and revive your skin
- Face and necklift surgery reduce sagging, excess skin
In combination with stress management techniques, these treatments should help you reduce the negative impact of stress and worry in your life.
