The old adage that laughter is the best medicine is true according to a recent report. The report highlights the benefits of laughter and heart health. Dr. O’Toole explains to patients who are concerned with what are commonly known as laugh lines, that cosmetic surgery procedures are available that will not only treat the laugh lines, but also create a smoother and more youthful looking face. First and foremost, patients benefit greatly from medical grade skincare products and treatments. Dr. O’Toole offers skin care treatments only available under a physician supervision. These treatments contain aggressive ingredients that yield dramatic results.Dr. O’Toole also offers injectable fillers, which help to add volume to lines that appear around the mouth. When we smile it can cause wrinkles and depressions in the face that can make a person appear much older. Fillers do not take away from the natural lines that occur when a patient smiles, they just make them less noticeable. Fillers including Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, and others, are very injector dependent. This means when patients have proven results they should use the same injector for the best, most consistent results. Laughter is the best medicine, so keep laughing and look great doing it. According to ABC 7 ”people who are under a great deal of stress release adrenaline, and this causes a number of not-so-good effects if it’s there all the time,” O’Connor said. Meanwhile, people who laugh release beta endorphin. This chemical floats around in the blood stream and has a positive effect on the circulation. ”If we’re getting a good belly laugh every day and we’re lowering our blood pressure and our heart rate by that, then you don’t have these forces that stir up trouble by snowplowing up the plaque,” Glendale Memorial Cardiologist Dr. Lawrence O’Connor said.
