Botox ‘makes people happier’

Wed

Botox stops people frowning and reduces feelings of unhappiness, according to an American study.Botox stops people feeling sad, new research has revealed.

A study by the US Association for Psychological Science found those who have had Botox are less able to frown and send unhappy feedback to the brain, leading to a less intense feeling.

The drug already has many uses, both cosmetic and medical, including curing frown lines, reducing underarm sweating and treating excessive stiffness in elbows, wrists and fingers, claims its official website.

A team of 40 volunteers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison were given small doses of Botox and asked to read some written statements about emotions.

After having the cosmetic treatment, they could read the happy phrases easily but took slightly longer to read the sad or angry ones.

The report’s author, David Havas, who is from the university’s department of psychology, said the results were significant as they show the brain took longer to process the negative feelings.

“When you’re not frowning, the world seems less angry and less sad,” he added.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19900320-ADNFCR

Botox ‘should be used sparingly’

Sat

Brits warned on over-use of Botox.

While many people view Botox as a quick fix in the fight against ageing, Brits have been warned there could be social drawbacks to its use.

Shami Thomas, PR manager at Transform, said that many people can go too far when having these treatments carried out and it should not be the aim of men or women who have Botox injections to have frozen features.

“The majority of women we see having Botox don’t want or have their entire face frozen. It’s just certain areas that they want treated. That does not mean that they cannot show any facial expressions whatsoever,” she commented.

According to the Sunday Times, however, women who use Botox are unable to display the full range of emotions because of the paralysing nature of the treatment.

Indeed, a recent study carried out by David Havas, a psychologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, recently showed that Botox users struggle to frown, look angry or sad and may even be unable to show empathy.

Research published in the JAMA journal Archives of Dermatology revealed the injections could reduce the frequency of attacks by as much as ten times.

It found that after three months of treatments, migraine frequency was reduced for study participants from a typical rate of 6.8 days per month to an average of 0.7 days.

The study’s author explained: “Our findings invite consideration of using botulinum toxin type A injections to prevent migraine headaches and may promote the role of the dermatologist in the treatment of patients with migraine.”

Elsewhere, a recent study led by David Havas of University of Wisconsin-Madison revealed anyone suffering from anger or depression issues could improve their moods by having Botox injections.

It found that the numbing reaction of having Botox injected can mean it is more difficult to grimace and frown, meaning the effects of these expressions are less keenly felt by users.
