and learn if cosmetic injectables are right for you to look and feel your best!

You’ve probably heard, “when you look good, you feel good.” There is a lot of truth to that, and it is backed by scientific study.

A key ingredient in many cosmetic injectables – botulinum toxin – has proven to have powerful, positive mental health effects.

Products like Botox® help reduce the appearance of frown and forehead lines as well as crow’s feet around the eyes. For example, while lessening the appearance lines and wrinkles, these products limit one’s ability to frown or outwardly express worry. The brain then thinks that, since you’re not frowning or looking worried, it will not lead you to a place of feeling sad or anxious.

What does the research say?

The Muscle-Brain Connection

Relaxing the facial muscles used to express negative emotions reduces the intensity of those emotions.

Less Depression

Patients receiving injections on the forehead, around the eyes, or along frown lines reported significantly fewer symptoms of depression than patients undergoing other treatments.

Reduced Anxiety

A study by the Skagg School in California asked participants if they experienced any reduction in anxiety symptoms when receiving injectable cosmetic treatments compared to a control group. The researchers found that reports of anxiety dropped between 22% and 72%.

Look better. Feel better.

Using cosmetic injectables as a mental health treatment is based on the premise that facial expression and emotional experience are linked. Specifically, sensory feedback from the action of facial muscles positively influences one’s emotions.

Botox and generic versions of it can help treat depression and anxiety

Research has shown many positive results of using cosmetic injectables for patients with treatment-resistant depression and anxiety.
