    A person who is always smiling seems foolish, but a positive “attitude of gratitude” is always helpful.This is just another sales gimmick. Snake oil, and nothing more.

    This is very interesting, but I would rather keep my facial expressions. But I heard that if you get a higher dose of Botox it can cause serious complications.

    Of course it helps treat depression. Botox takes away our signs aging… who wouldn’t be happy about that???

    I have a mild case of depression and I’ve had botox a few times around my eyes for crows feet. I did notice a difference in my mood afterward. I even had others say my mood was “happier”. It wasn’t just because my crows feet were going away. I think there might be something to botox treating depression.
