Turn that Frown Upside Down
According to new research not only does Botox have the ability to wipe away those physical aging lines and frowns, but it can alter your mood for the better too. The notion that Botox removes frown lines and lifts the face, also then incites lifting spirits, it removes the ability to frown so therefore people are perceived to be happier. The Press Association says, "Patients who received botox treatment were found to be significantly less depressed, anxious and irritable than those who did not. Botox injections paralyse the forehead muscles, preventing frowning. The research findings support the theory that expressions feed back and impact emotions, Dr Lewis said. By blocking frowning, botox prevents expressions of negative emotion, resulting in a happier mood." Scientists are hoping this can aid in the progress of diagnosing and researching anti-depressants and helping people with depression and anxiety issues.
