Do you get depressed during the dark days of late autumn and winter? You might have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
More than just the winter blues, SAD is a form of depression that occurs at the same time each year, usually in winter. SAD can affect your mood, sleep, appetite, and energy levels, taking a toll on all aspects of your life from your relationships and social life to work and your sense of self-worth.
Do I have Seasonal Affective Disorder -SAD?
For many, the symptoms usually begin mildly at the start of autumn and get progressively worse through the darkest days of winter. Then, by spring or early summer, the symptoms lift until you’re in remission and feel normal and healthy again. Symptoms include:
- Depressed mood, low self-esteem, feeling sad
- Loss of interest or pleasure in activities you used to enjoy
- Appetite and weight changes
- Feeling angry, irritable, stressed, or anxious
- Unexplained aches and pains
- Fatigue and changes in sleeping pattern
Embrace the Power of Light with Dermalux
Seasonal depression can make it hard to motivate yourself to make changes, but getting plenty of natural sunlight can help boost serotonin levels and improve your mood. When that’s not possible, Dermalux LED Light Therapy is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that uses the power of light to rejuvenate, repair and revitalise not just the skin, but your mood, too.
There are two types of LED light that are used in the Dermalux treatment. Red LED Light minimises fine lines and wrinkles to give smoother skin with more even skin tones. Blue LED light is used for congested skin treatment, and also helps in the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
The sensation of LED therapy is likened to lying in the sun- it’s an incredibly relaxing and positive experience, helping lift the cloud of seasonal affective disorder whilst rejuvenating your skin, at the same time. With no downtime after treatment you can get your regular dose of mood-enhancing light therapy on-the-go as part of your everyday routine.
Air Aesthetics also offer other forms of wellness therapies highly effective in treating SAD such as nutrition, life coaching and hormone therapies.
