A new study shows that Botox not only improves wrinkles, but also moods.
The 16-week study appeared in the Journal of Psychiatric Research and claims that the face’s inability to register emotion after being injected with Botox may also improve the mood of users by helping them fight depression.
Head of the study M. Axel Wollmer of the University of Basel says that Botox “…interrupts feedback from the facial musculature to the brain, which may be involved in the development and maintenance of negative emotions.”
This study results correspond to the results of “smile therapy”, which states that smiling produces positive benefits. Could the same be true of not frowning?
Let’s hope so!
