Botox Will Make You Smile
Did you know that some studies show that Botox can trick your mind into being happier? It can literally and psychologically, turn your frown upside down. The theory is that facial expressions intensify emotion and act as a feedback loop for the original emotion. By not making the angry expression, people may feel less angry.
Quite some time ago, I noticed that people were always asking me “What’s wrong?” I constantly replied, “Nothing, I’m doing great.” But the natural curvature of my lips forms a frown so if my face is in a neutral position, I look grumpy or sad. A colleague recommended I try Botox and I never thought the subtle change would be so significant.
Two weeks after my first treatment, my best friend said to me “I can’t put my finger on it but you have this glow about you. Your skin just looks great and you look happy.” I had to share the secret with her. My Botox injections are having a positive effect on others! Whether the happiness is a psychological response to the physical change or an emotional response to the increased self-confidence, I don’t know, but it’s smiles all around.
This video explains how I have felt, all along.
Botulinum toxin is a medication injected into the muscle to decrease the movement that causes wrinkles to form on the face: crow’s feet, glabella, and forehead. If you have cosmetic desires, seek a reputable doctor for a consultation.
