Sheila Namanworth, DMD of Institute for Advanced Medical Research, answers a reader’s question about Botox.

Can Botox really help depression?

Yes. In three separate studies, researchers found that treating the facial muscles responsible for expressing emotions sends feedback into the brain. In short, if your face looks happy, you feel happy. This use of Botox is just one more exciting development as we start to explore the connection between brain and mind wellness; this connection is key component of any anti-aging regime.
