Q: Can Botox help with depression?

A: A Maryland dermatologist, Eric Finzi, MD has found through his research that Botox use has helped more than half of the people suffering from moderate to severe depression. Botox is best known for paralyzing facial muscles when injected into the desired areas. The side effect is that your skin looks smoother. Many of my own patients have reported back to me how happy they feel when they look into the mirror after their treatment because they feel better. Today most people are working out and trying to take better care of themselves so it is only natural that one would want to feel even better when they look into the mirror.
