I'm not sure if this is the correct section, but I would like to know, if it is indeed true, that among others, Oxytocin is responsible for controlling levels of anxiety/stress levels, on the face? If so, is it possible to get tested for levels of Oxytocin in the Brain?

I am not very familiar with this. There is some ongoing research in the neuro-behavioral world with oxytocin and autism. Currently, there is some clinical and basic science research looking into oxytocin and anxiety. If you would like more information, I would suggest you contact your local psychiatrist who may be more familiar with the current literature. I cannot provide you with much information since this is outside my scope.
Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
