Some exciting news came about in 2015, about how Botox may actually help ease depression in addition to smoothing out wrinkles. That’s right — this Forbes article that explains the study got our team (and many others) thinking about the wonderful possibilities these findings could open up for our patients. Keep reading to learn more about the study and about cosmetic and therapeutic Botox treatments in Marietta at Elite Dentistry.
Botox in Marietta Could Help You in Unexpected Ways
You’ve probably heard people say that smiling can actually enhance your mood. It’s true — the action produces short, powerful bursts of endorphins that can help you feel better, even if you don’t feel so much like smiling.
That’s sort of the idea behind the findings that Botox treatments can help to ease depression. After studying data that shows reduced depression symptoms after Botox injections, scientists believe the link may be between our feelings and the muscles in our foreheads. As the article says, “To oversimplify, frowning may really make you sad.”
Although it’s not been proven yet, our Marietta team thinks this news is encouraging. We’re always interested in learning how we can best meet the needs of our patients. We’ve been providing cosmetic and therapeutic Botox treatments for years, and our patients report enjoying numerous benefits after the quick procedure.
How Botox Works
Botox treatments are quick and effective. In fact, the procedure is so fast that some of our patients drop by for a quick injection on their way to work, or on their lunch break. It works pretty simply — by paralyzing the muscles in your face that cause wrinkles. A few injections are all that are needed to achieve a fresher, younger appearance, and the results may last anywhere from four to six months.
