of Brits undergo BOTOX® treatment every year to reduce the
appearance of laughter lines and furrowed brows.
However scientists have discovered another use for the anti-wrinkle
treatment. Not only can it be used to reduce the effects of ageing
and stop hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), but BOTOX® can
now actually improve your mood as well.
Researchers at Cardiff University investigated the effects of
cosmetic treatments on the mood of 25 volunteers.
of the group a number of them underwent BOTOX® whilst others
had laser surgery, cosmetic peels and numerous other treatments
designed to make the skin look younger. All of the groups felt
that their treatment was particularly effective, but those given
BOTOX® said they felt much happier.
Researchers believe that our expressions affect our mood, so when
we wrinkle our brows when annoyed it only reinforces our irritation.
Therefore by stopping the face from frowning, BOTOX® actually
makes patients feel happier.
David Ross, chief executive of The Hospital Group, said: “Despite
the recession, our clinics have reported a surge in the number
of BOTOX® treatments conducted across the country.
“For many years we have noticed the positive effect the
treatment has had not only on our patient’s appearance,
but also their mood. Patients leave our clinics in high spirits
which we feel contributes to their numerous return visits.”
