If a person has one month of chronic only of depression does that age the face or is that not enough time to do aging damage?

Since cortisol levels rise when one is under chronic stress which can damage collagen. However is one month of chronic stress and worry enough to show up on one's face. Or is that not enough time to show damage if one is eating well and taking care themselves during the chronic stress.

    One month would be considered an acute illness not a chronic illness.

    Chronic refers to long term, generally years or even lifetime.
