As the number-one cosmetic treatment in the US, BOTOX® is the wrinkle treatment of choice for millions of Americans every year. We all know it can change the way we look, but could it also change the way we feel? The way we think about ourselves?
News Agency, UPI, reports on one plastic surgeon, Steven Dayan, who sought to find that out. In a recent study, “participants were photographed and randomized to receive injections of Botox between the eyebrows, forehead and crow’s feet or injections of a saline solution,” reports UPI. The study wanted to look at the ways that botulinum toxin type A treatments can affect self esteem and quality of life. And, the results may surprise you.
According to UPI, “[The] double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study found Botox boosts overall quality of life and self-esteem, U.S. researchers say.” And, while this doesn’t mean to say that you’ll have the same outcome, it definitely raises an interesting question about how cosmetic treatment may impact our lives in deeper ways than previously considered.
Now, read on to learn more about BOTOX and what it can do for you.
10 Years of Botox
Last month, BOTOX celebrated a milestone birthday. “April 15th marked the 10-year anniversary of the approval of Botox Cosmetic by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA),” says the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. And, in those ten years, millions and millions of Americans have undergone the procedure.
Why? The answer is simple — because it works. BOTOX injections work by preventing facial creases such as “frown lines.” Unlike fillers which work to “fill in” creases, BOTOX is essentially a muscle relaxer that reduces their appearance.
