Woman holding two babiesWomen in today’s society have multiple roles and many responsibilities. It can be very stressful for women balancing life at home and their career. Recently a study found that stress is a huge factor in the reported new  cases of breast cancer. Many women seem to internalize stress and that turn can hurt their health and well-being.  Dr. O’Toole encourages his patients to take advantage of medical grade skin care treatments and injectables includingBotox and fillers as a less invasive way to revitalize their appearance and relieve stress.  Sometimes women do not have the ability to take the necessary time off from work to recover from a more invasiveprocedure.  Dr. O’Toole advises patients that in some cases they can choose facial rejuvenation procedures individually so that they do not lose a lot of time from work.  For example, many patients can benefit from a blepharoplasty (eyelidlift) which will help them to look more alert and energized.  Usually they are able to return to work in 5 to 7 days provided they can wear makeup to cover any bruising  that may still remain.  Keeping stress to a minimum is always better for our health.  According to KTLA 5  989 women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer in the previous three months were asked  a lot of questions to assess their level of stress. It turned out that there was an association between stress and the disease – the women who scored highest for stress were more likely to have a more aggressive form of breast cancer.
