Botox Treats Depression

Botox Treats DepressionBotox, produced with botulinum toxin, is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments to reduce unwanted wrinkles and fine lines from certain areas of the face. Motykie Medical Spa is one of the leading providers of Botox treatment for patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas.
The med spa is led by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie, and provides state of the art facilities for non-invasive and minimally invasive anti-aging and other aesthetic procedures. Botox is recommended to suitable candidates who are bothered by the visible signs of aging on their face, but are keen to avoid surgical solutions.

A Unique Benefit of Botox

In addition to its aesthetic benefits, Botox is also used for certain medical purposes such as reduction of excessive sweating, managing chronic migraines and controlling involuntary twitching of eyelids. Motykie Medical Spa is committed to keeping its patients well-informed about the latest innovations and advancements with regard to Botox usage. Dr. Motykie believes in educating his patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other locations so that they are in a position to make the most appropriate choices to meet their aesthetic goals.
In this endeavor to keep his patients abreast with the latest developments in the field, Dr. Motykie points out one of the newest revelations about Botox. A recently published research book, which has been lauded by the New York Times as the “first authorized biography” of Botox, has suggested that Botox could be an effective cure for depression, in addition to its usual aesthetic benefits.
The book called “In the Face of Emotion” states that a procedure such as Botox, which is performed by a certified med spa Botox provider, can result in improving the mental make-up of the patient and reinvigorate their relationships with others. While most people are aware about the unique anti-aging benefits of Botox, but this new discovery that Botox can also make the patient get rid of any signs of depression, is new information that potential patients should know.

Connection between Emotions and Muscles

Experienced Botox providers are usually aware that Botox treatments can help their patient become more cheerful than before. However, now scientists are providing a solid scientific basis to this belief, and are linking the effect to reduction of facial wrinkles and fine lines. For instance, frown muscles on the forehead typically cause wrinkles and aging lines in the area.
These lines are also called expression lines, which may typically express negative emotions such as anger, frustration, sadness, or anxiety. With the application of Botox in the targeted areas of the forehead, the physical formation of the expressions required to show the negative emotions is prevented. The muscles that were causing the frown become temporary paralyzed due to Botox injections. This effectively helps mitigate negative emotions because they expression is physically denied.

Darwin’s Theory

Charles Darwin suggested in a theory way back in 17th century that facial muscles not only cause expression of emotions, but they also have a role to play in how an individual perceives and experiences those emotions. Darwin said that if the illustration of such feelings is curbed, the natural response to such feelings will also be reduced.
