The World Health Organisation estimates that the number of people suffering from depression is approximately 280 million. Established treatments such as psychotherapy or antidepressants don’t work sufficiently for about one-third of the patients so there is a need to develop novel treatment options, and this is where BSST treatments could have a significant role. · You need to think about BSST if you are thinking about this question: · What do I miss most about my younger face? · What do I appreciate about my mature face? · What would I allow myself as “treat” to maintain my good and healthy looks? · What cause depression? · What is the best way to improve my mental wellbeing? ACTION Skin Booster and Rejuvenation treatments with combination of injectables might influence the cell generation and boost serotonin levels system, making you feel all round happier and could help with the treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD), according to a recent study by our scientific team at The British Academy of Facial Aesthetics “BAFA LONDON” As part of our study, magnetic resonance imaging provided the first evidence showing how aesthetic treatments might modify the behavioural and emotionally aspects of BPD. These new findings are in line with other studies on how BSST could be used to treat mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. The research involved trail emotional and confidence magnetic on 25 women and 25 men (different age groups) suffering from the anxiety and depression which is associated with unwelcoming changes in physical and mental appearance. The participants had to control their reactions to certain wrinkles while seeing pictures of faces with different emotional expressions presented to them on a computer screen while the researchers scanned their mental health and emotions by using clinical special diagnostics, interviews and the results were measured both before the treatment and eight weeks after. BPD is one of the most common personality disorders with symptoms of emotional instability and impulsive behaviour and is a condition that affects how you think , feel and interact with the other people, patients suffering from BPD experience an excess of negative emotions like anger and fear and shame based on previous studies, our hypothesis was that improving skin texture and wrinkles and will interrupt a feedback loop between the face and the brain and thereby reduce these negative emotions.
The diagnostic studies of patients showed decreased activity in the amygdala region of the brain responsible for processing negative emotions.
The study showed a reduction in the activity of the amygdala which is commonly through to form the core of a neural system for processing fearful anxiety and threatening to emotional stimuli, which is often exaggerated in BPD patients.
The researchers also noticed that BSST reduced the patients’ impulsive behaviour in the task, correlating with the activation of prefrontal areas in the brain that are involved in inhibitory control and significantly improve on mental health.
Emotions expressed on the face affect our mental state; negative emotions such as anger, sadness, or fear often generate skin texture and wrinkles on the skin, face and neck lines when treated with the BSST for face rejuvenating which, according to the facial feedback hypothesis, also cuts back the intensity of the expressed emotions.
In our study in 2021 Brits and USA scientists globally, found that BSST can also mitigate anxiety disorders.
Anxiety disorders were 22 to 85% less common in patients with BSST than in those who had received other therapies for the same conditions.
The BAFA London scientist team therefore, concluded that either there is overall body feedback where the areas treated with different aesthetic treatments which communicate with the brain – or the botulinum toxin somehow travels and reaches the central nervous system.
Based on the same database, similar research was conducted in 2022 about the possible antidepressant effects of BSST treatments. This showed that BSST could be used not only to treat depression as several previous studies had already suggested – but it might also have a protective effect on the condition.
