Does Botox Improve Your Mood?

By now, you know that Botox is one of the most famous names in anti-aging injectables. You may even know that Botox can be prescribed for a host of other health issues, like excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and chronic migraines.

But did you know that there’s evidence that Botox can improve your mood?


How Botox Improves Your Mood

While there are still plenty of studies investigating how Botox can improve one’s mood, there’s enough evidence to start to establish a link between Botox injections and improved depression symptoms.

The studies first began in 2006, where researchers noted that Botox recipients with depression no longer displayed depressive symptoms. These accidental results were so intriguing that researchers followed the study up in 2012, 2014, and 2017 – in all three studies, participants with depression who received Botox injections reported significant improvement in their symptoms. Those individuals with depression in control groups who did not receive Botox injections reported no change to their symptoms.

What Else Can Botox Be Used For?

While the jury is still out on when Botox will start to be incorporated into depression treatments, there are still plenty of other ailments that Botox injections can treat. For example, Botox injections have been used for:

  • Smoothing away forehead wrinkles and lines
  • Minimizing migraine symptoms and frequency
  • Eliminating excessive sweating underneath the armpits
  • And more!

It seems like every year brings a new Botox discovery, so who knows what we’ll learn about Botox in 2019 and beyond.
