Case report: using botulinum toxin type A in a patient with a history of depression

Case report: using botulinum toxin type A in a patient with a history of depression Consulting patients with a history of mental ill-health spans across every medical field, including aesthetics. Many people suffer from depression, transiently or chronically, throughout their lives. Depression can impair individuals' day-to-day functioning or affect the way they feel about their outward appearance. More often people with depression can lose interest in their appearance, but this is not always the case. Patients may also present with other mental health problems, such as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). With time and experience, aesthetic practitioners can grow to understand, identify, consent and treat individuals who suffer from depression and mental ill-health without doing them harm. BDD, however, should remain a contraindication to treatment with botulinum toxin type A. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Consulting patients with a history of mental ill-health spans across every medical field, including aesthetics. Many people suffer from depression, transiently or chronically, throughout their lives. Depression can impair individuals' day-to-day functioning or affect the way they feel about their outward appearance. More often people with depression can lose interest in their appearance, but this is not always the case. Patients may also present with other mental health problems, such as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). With time and experience, aesthetic practitioners can grow to understand, identify, consent and treat individuals who suffer from depression and mental ill-health without doing them harm. BDD, however, should remain a contraindication to treatment with botulinum toxin type A.
