The Hidden Benefit of Botox that You Need To Know About

For many years now, Botox has been the beauty treatment of choice for men and women who want to eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun, stress, and time from their appearance. Safe and proven, Westchester Botox and Dysport can help you maintain your youthful, energetic appearance – but did you know that Botox can also make you happier?

It’s true! Researchers at the University of Washington at Madison are examining the body-mind connection, specifically the premise that our facial expressions have a direct impact on the emotional experience we have. The act of smiling can create positive feelings within us, while the act of frowning can contribute to negative feelings. This is called embodied cognition.

Botox and Dysport smooth away fine lines and wrinkles and when administered correctly, allow us to maintain our natural, expressive appearance. The researchers have discovered that people who have had Botox treatment in Westchester frown less often, subsequently resulting in a reduction of negative feelings. The same may be true for Dysport which works in much the same way. Many times, we frown without being aware of the fact that we’re frowning, such as when we’re concentrating on something or trying to make a decision. This unconscious frowning can drag down our mood, making us feel sad even when we’re not. The lines and folds that can form around the mouth can make these frowns appear deeper and more pronounced then they really are.

Botox’s minimization of those lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, forehead and between the brows means you don’t experience these unconscious frowns so often or so significantly. (On those occasions where you NEED to frown, no worries – Westchester Botox and Dysport can allow for your voluntary facial expressions)! This means you not only look happier, you are happier!
