Stressed Skin Care Treatments
The symptoms of stressed skin can present to anyone who is undergoing an unusual or increased amount of stress in their lives. Stress can have a significant impact on our physical health, mental well-being, and overall quality of life.
That’s why it’s essential to take proactive steps to manage stress effectively. One effective way to do this is through cosmetic treatments. At Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic, we offer a range of treatments that can help reduce the visible signs of stress on your body whilst also promoting relaxation.
Why Does Stressed Skin Occur?
Stress can have a significant impact on our bodies, including its effect on existing skin conditions and even beauty treatments.
One of the main causes of stressed skin conditions is the increased production of hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones can affect your oil production in the skin’s sebaceous glands making existing skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis worse and potentially also causing acne breakouts.
Stress can also lead to inflammation throughout the body, whilst also impairing your skin’s natural defence barriers and decreasing your skin’s healing abilities. The inflammation can exacerbate existing skin conditions, and cause redness and swelling. Whilst the impairment of your natural skin barriers makes your skin more sensitive. Then the slow healing process can leave your skin more susceptible to infections and/or scarring.
Stressed skin symptoms are also affected by:
- Any lack of sleep caused by increased stress.
- Dietary changes that often occur under stressful times, such as consuming excessive amounts of processed or sugary foods.
- Any compulsive skin picking or scratching that occurs as a response to stress. Often exacerbating existing conditions or leading to new ones.
What are the Symptoms of Stressed Skin?
Skin Problems or Conditions
Stressed skin can cause a range of issues with skin prone to acne, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea. All of these can be impacted by the increased hormone levels, increased dryness and inflammation that stress can cause.
Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Stress is also well known for affecting fine lines and wrinkles. As our skin and facial muscles are pinched during times of stress, cortisol is also known for breaking down collagen. Collagen is the key aspect of your skin that gives it elasticity and firmness.
Hair loss can occur just as often as skin conditions due to stress. This can occur either through telogen effluvium, a temporary hair loss, or alopecia areata, an autoimmune condition that causes patchy to total hair loss. Stress has been known to worsen existing hair loss conditions, such as androgenetic alopecia.
Dark Circles and Puffiness
Due to excessive inflammation and lack of sleep, stressed skin can also present as dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. This is commonly due to the constriction of blood vessels around our eyes. This can often make us look excessively tired and/or aged.
How Do These Stressed Skin Conditions Affect Cosmetic Treatments?
Unfortunately, all these negative effects of stress on the body can impact the results and reliability of certain beauty treatments. One example is if you undergo a skin rejuvenation treatment, such as with chemical peels or laser treatments. If you continue to experience high levels of stress, your experience may not be as effective as it could be. Whether that is due to heightened skin sensitivity or reduced healing capabilities. Similarly, if you undergo a lip enhancement treatment, but experience hair loss due to stress, the overall effect may be less pronounced.
How Can Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic Help with Your Stressed Skin?
One of the most common signs of stress is the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our anti-wrinkle injections can help to reduce the appearance of these lines and wrinkles. Leaving you with a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. Our experienced clinic only uses the highest quality products. These injections will help to smooth out your stressed skin by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. These include frown lines and crow’s feet. Additionally, we take a personalised approach to each treatment, further ensuring that our clients achieve their desired results.
Similar to anti-wrinkle injections, we also offer dermal fillers which can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be useful for also adding volume and contour to the face. Stress can cause your skin to lose elasticity and volume, resulting in a tired and aged appearance. Our dermal fillers can reduce the signs of stressed skin to restore a more youthful appearance and leave you feeling more confident and refreshed in your skin.
A non-surgical facelift is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional and more extensive facelift surgeries. Our version of facelifts can help to reduce the appearance of sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and many more stressed skin symptoms.
Our non-surgical facelifts utilise a combination of treatments that have been specifically selected to suit your skin and needs. This often combines dermal fillers, thread lifts, and more. These all work together to lift and tighten the skin.
There are many benefits to choosing a non-surgical facelift with Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic. These include but are not limited to their low downtime to recover and minimally invasive nature. Allowing you to get back to your daily routine quickly and efficiently.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Stress can take a toll on our skin, causing it to appear dull, tired, and aged. Skin rejuvenation treatments can help restore a more youthful-looking complexion, leaving you feeling more confident and refreshed. We offer a range of skin rejuvenation treatments, including chemical peels, microneedling, and laser treatments.
Our experienced clinicians will work with you to identify the best skin rejuvenation treatments for your individual needs. We use only the highest quality products and techniques to ensure your safety and satisfaction.
