Can Botox Injections Cure Your Blues?

This is an interesting article from the new Smart Beauty Guide: Two recent studies have shown that Botox injections can possibly alleviate symptoms of depression.  One study showed a 47% decrease in their subjects’ depressive symptoms.  The other study showed that 27% of subjects treated with Botox had significant improvement in their depression.

So how might this work?

Are the subjects less depressed since they look better after the Botox?  Probably not.

Could they feel better because the Botox prevents them from frowning?  Maybe.

At this point, we really don’t know!
