PHILADELPHIA, PA, February 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Botox has become a popular option among a diverse set of patients when it comes to reducing signs of aging--such as those presented by wrinkles. However, a recent article from TIME reveals new research that suggests the practice could have more advantages that extend beyond the surface of cosmetics. According to the article, the research conducted by Dr. Eric Finzi, medical director of the Chevy Chase Cosmetic Center in Maryland has proposed "that treating frown lines and erasing the outward signs of aging may actually lift spirits among people with depression." While the research is still set in its early phases, Dr. Jennifer Hein--founder of the Women's Institute of Cosmetic and Laser Surgery
in Illinois--explains that it is important for patients not to take depression lightly.
While no conclusions have been drawn, TIME notes that the study operates on principles established early on by Charles Darwin. It states, "The idea that physical expressions of emotion influence our experience of feelings goes back to Charles Darwin, who studied emotions in both animals and humans in various cultures. Darwin referred to the frown muscles as the "grief muscles" and connected frowns to feelings of sadness." Therefore by treating wrinkles, some believe that individuals can experience a remission of depression, much as how smiling is known to elevate one's mood.
The Women's Institute of Cosmetic and Laser Surgery has assisted numerous patients achieve improved appearances with the help of its state-of-the-art facility and all-female surgical team. While plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures are traditionally viewed as a strong option for boosting self-esteem, Dr. Jennifer Hein cautions using Botox as a treatment for depression--at least until the research is conclusive.
Dr. Hein concludes, "Symptoms like depression should never be taken lightly and should first and foremost be discussed with one's primary care physician or a specialist in the mental health field. At the Women's Institute of Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, we feel that patients should consider Botox only for the time-tested aesthetic benefits and not as a way to lessen depression. Although the results from the studies listed in the article are encouraging, it is important to remember that there may be many reasons as to why some of the people felt less depressed."
