botoxWe already know that regular Botox injections lead to smoother skin and less wrinkles. New research shows that the benefits may be even more far-reaching. 

Dr. Eric Finzi, a Maryland dermatologist is pioneering the use of Botox to treat depression. His research found that more than half of people suffering from moderate to severe depression who received Botox showed “substantial improvement” in their symptoms.

The basic idea is that your facial expressions can affect your overall mood. Because Botox can inhibit your ability to make a deep frown or “angry face”, you receive more positive “facial feedback”.

We know that the improvement in appearance that our patient’s receive from regular Botox injections can positively influence their overall self esteem. Dr. Finzi’s research takes that idea to another level, adding evidence to the claim that we often hear from our patients …Botox makes them happy!
