A Novel Approach
In 2015, researchers at the Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Basel in Switzerland and Hannover Medical School in Germany found that treating facial muscles with Botox eases the symptoms of depression. Since facial muscles express our emotions, they help send feedback signals to the brain, which then strengthen said emotions.
Positive effects on mood have been observed in patients who’ve had Botox treatments for frown lines and in the area between the eyebrows and above the nose. For the study, patients with high levels of chronic and treatment-resistant depression were randomly selected to receive an injection of Botox or a placebo. After the first treatment, the Botox group had an average 47% decrease in depression compared to 9% in the placebo group!
How to Get Started
If you’ve decided that it’s time to say goodbye to those fine lines and want to improve your overall mood, there are a couple of things to consider. The first is to ask as many questions as possible during your consultation, especially if it’s your first time. Most questions involve how Botox works and if it’s safe.
