Botox Beats the Blues
Posted On Oct 13, 2016
Many people enjoy the fresh, relaxed look provided by Botox treatments, and something about cosmetic treatments just puts us in a good mood.
Now, a study from University of Texas Southwestern says that we aren’t just dreaming up this light feeling. It found that cosmetic Botox treatments have an antidepressant effect, even after the cosmetic benefits wore off. If we look less stressed, we interact more with others, and this improves mood.
Botox injections also relax the trigeminal nerve, responsible for triggering the brain’s amygdale, which regulates depression and anxiety levels.
