Can Botox Be Used For More Than Your Forehead?
If you’ve tried Botox, you probably loved your results. As the most popular non-invasive treatment out there, Botox cosmetic has gained a lot of attention for its ability to soften fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and across the forehead. And although Botox is extremely effective when it is used on the upper quadrant of the face, it can also be used for other things.
Lower Part of the Face and Neck
Even though Botox cosmetic is traditionally advertised as an injection for around the eyes and across the forehead, it can also be used on the lower part of the face and neck. One reason why it’s really popular for the face and neck is that it gives patients more natural looking results.
When Dr. Somerville was interviewed by the Ask Beauty Experts magazine in 2014, she discussed just how effective Botox can be for more than just cosmetic concerns. She emphasized the fact that Botox can be used as an antidepressant. How exactly? Not only do patients tend to feel happier with their appearance after Botox but they also claim that by preventing a patient's ability to frown, it creates a less depressive mood.
Whether you have had Botox cosmetic done before or if you are considering giving it a try, then it may be worth considering using it across your face and neck, and maybe even as an antidepressant.
