Botox injections are most commonly used as an aesthetic treatment.
The botullinum toxin used in the popular anti-ageing injections works to relax the movement of fine dynamic facial muscles, thereby allowing the skin to drape more smoothly, easing out the lines, wrinkles and creases that can appear over time.
Most people choose botox for its results in treating the signs of ageing.
However, there is also evidence that use of botox injections can also improve the way patients feel, as well as how they look.
So it doesn’t just ‘freeze your forehead’, but can actually alter your emotions too.
The theory is that paralysing the frown muscles, by stopping patients frowning, actually serves to reduce levels of depression and anxiety – if you can’t frown, you can’t feel bad. It’s an interesting theory that has an increasing body of evidence. The latest research comes from Michael Lewis from Cardiff University.
