Can Botox Affect Your Emotions
27th August 2013
Everyone knows that Botox is one successful way to fight off permanent smile and frown lines; however, recent studies have shown that it affects a whole lot more. Dubbed as one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments available, this non-surgical procedure involves injecting small doses of a natural protein called Botulinum Toxin to relax facial muscles, and therefore reduce the appearance of sunken lines and wrinkles. Since Botox limits a person's ability to make full facial expressions, is there a connection to their negative emotions?
Botox Blocking Negative Feelings
Recent studies have found that blocking the expression of emotion can actually have an effect on how we both understand and feel emotion. Botox is said to be able to bring relief to patients who suffer from depression thanks to the relaxed frown muscles. Do you feel that you constantly have that upset or sad expression on your face no thanks to ageing skin? Our sk:n experts will be able to break down everything you need to know about Botox before and after treatment. We can address the common problem areas including the forehead, temples, around the mouth/eyes and the upper cheeks.
This popular method of anti-ageing produces excellent results for up to six months. It works by blocking nerve impulses via injection, similar to Juvederm lip fillers. Our skin specialists have been professionally trained to inject the Botox safely and accurately to allow the skin to look more relaxed and refreshed instead of stiff and expressionless, with no healing time required. Treatment time only takes approximately 10 minutes and you'll be able to see smoother skin immediately after the procedure.
