Botox protects against depression and improves emotional well-being.
Doctor of Aesthetics from Russia about her innovative method of fighting depression.
Iuliia Zviagina is aesthetic doctor with over 10 years of experience, who has worked with thousands of clients, the author of a methodology that helps to fight depressive disorders.
Dr. Zviagina began her career at a neuropsychiatric dispensary, where for 5 years, she has been helping people with a difficult diagnosis – depression. Years of practice and constant communication with her patients prompted Iuliia to consider the causes of depression. Even then, Iuliia was thinking about alternative methods of treating this disease.
Continuing to study this issue and the possibilities of its treatment, Dr. Iuliia decides to start practicing in the general department of the hospital to gain more experience. During this time, Dr. Iuliia was immersed in the study of the muscles of the face and the impulses that they send to the brain. Having become interested in this, Dr. Iuliia begins to study as anesthetician and begins her practice in this field.
Thanks to her 10 years of experience, Iuliia discovered a method of fighting depression through Botox injections. Botox, a medication derived from a bacterial toxin, works by weakening or paralyzing specific muscles or by blocking certain nerves.
The result appears the very next day after the procedure, and the final effect can be expected in two weeks.
Doctor Iuliia injects Botox to smooth facial wrinkles and treats health problems such as severe sweating, uncontrollable blinking, chronic migraines, overactive bladders, and neurological disorders that cause muscle contractions and pain in the neck and shoulders.
Thanks to Botox, the habit of frowning disappears. Therefore, even when the drug is completely absorbed, the wrinkles will not reappear longer. Iuliia’s patients report improvements in their emotional state, increased self-confidence, reduced anxiety, and, as a result, the cessation of depression.
Dr. Iuliia Zviagina was the first Doctor of Aesthetics in Russia who began fighting depression using Botox. She has patented her technique and has already helped thousands of clients to become more confident, fight depression, and visually emphasize their attractiveness.
This is good news considering that there are 264 million people worldwide currently suffering from depression, and about a third of that number is not responding to conventional treatments. About seven years ago, scientists suggested that the use of Botox in the forehead area helps to get rid of the “gloomy” facial expression and this, in turn, helps to live more positively. But for high-profile statements, the proof was needed.
In 2020, Researchers at Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of California San Diego have mined the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA )’s Adverse Effect Reporting System (FAERS) database to see what nearly 40,000 people reported happened to them after treatment with Botox for a variety of reasons.
The data of all patients were divided into eight groups depending on their goal: to remove wrinkles, overcome migraines, get rid of limb cramps, eliminate back pain, forget about a nervous tic, stop sweating heavily, minimize salivation, and cure bladder disorders.
In the study, published July 30, 2020, in Scientific Reports, the team discovered that people who received Botox injections – at six different sites, not just in the forehead – reported depression significantly less often than patients undergoing different treatments for the same conditions. Each cohort was separated into two groups, in which one group received Botox for their conditions and the other did not. Patients who received Botox injections to treat excessive sweating, facial wrinkles, migraine, spasticity, and spasms reported depression 40% to 88% less often than people who underwent different treatments for the same conditions.
As scientists suggest, the mechanism is much more complex than just smoothing the skin. Botox can be transported to the structure of the central nervous system, which affects our mood and emotions. Besides that, the depressive state is characterized by muscle tone. Botox injections can weaken muscles, which can have a positive effect on treatment.
