Many people have a stereotype of individuals who desire aesthetic treatments however never dive deep into the reasons why. This blog is to discuss how numerous medical studies over the years strongly agree that there is a link between undergoing cosmetic treatments and improved psychological well-being and mental health.
The benefits of aesthetic treatments go far beyond enhancing and rejuvenating your natural and youthful beauty. Among the scientifically proven health benefits of aesthetic treatments is a marked improvement in mental health.
Seasonal Affective Disorder
The changing of seasons doesn’t just affect the weather. In previous blogs, we have gone into detail about how seasonal changes affect our bodies, for example, our skin. However another huge aspect of our lives it takes its toll on is our mental frame of mind.
There are so many lovely elements of autumn, however, as we adjust to shorter days, changing day-to-day routines and colder temperatures. It is a lot for our bodies and mental health to deal with.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that is typically caused by seasonal changes. The episodes of depression usually occur in the autumn and winter months as the days become shorter and darker. Typically as the hours of daylight shorten, the main symptoms of this depression are sleeping more and becoming less active than normal.
It hasn’t been scientifically proven to have an exact cause however there are many arguments to link this type of depression with reduced exposure to sunlight.
Light therapy is the most popular method for treating SAD. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, other methods of treatment are talking therapies or prescribed antidepressants.
It is important to remember aesthetic procedures aren’t a method for treating SAD, however, it is backed by professionals that treatments such as anti-wrinkle, dermal fillers and facials can reduce symptoms of depression. This is because your physical appearance and emotional experiences are related. Your outside demeanor isn’t just a representation of your inner world but also influences it. When insecurities in an individual’s appearance are addressed, it has been proven to alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety and other mood disorders. As we look happier, we feel happier.
We understand menopause can affect women in many different ways, large or small. Aesthetic treatment’s main aim is to help women feel the best version of themselves.
We want to help you look natural, feel confident and be proud of your beautiful, healthy skin, whatever stage of life you are at.
