Botox May Help Lift Depression?

We have all heard of the miraculous results from Botox for reducing fine lines and brow furrows but now recent studies have shown that Botox may have an additional use – relief from depression. A recent clinical trial study shows Botox injections can produce promising results for those who suffer from depression.  The study was conducted with severely depressed people who were not on any anti-depressant medication. These participants received Botox injections in their faces during the study. The results were that approximately 50% of the participants who received the Botox injections reported relief from their depression symptoms.  Two scientific journals, Scientific American and Journal of Psychiatric Research, have published the study results and additional medical and scientific publications will be including this study information in upcoming editions. As research progresses it seems Botox is not just for lifting lines on your face but can also lift your spirits!
