A recent Botox study published in the November 2010 issue of Dermatologic Surgery, a prominent Dermatology journal, shows a group of individuals receiving Botox injections actually increased the quality of their life. 100 participants received Botox injections and a placebo solution in their foreheads and their crows feet. The recipients where monitored and studied before the injections and 3 months after in order to see just how much of an impact on the quality of life the recipients received. The results of increased positive moods where quite astonishing.

The patients treated with the Botox injections significantly increased their quality of life surrounding the following areas:

  • Physical health
  • Mood
  • Household Activities
  • Overall life satisfaction
  • Body satisfaction
  • Intellect
  • Self-worth
  • Weight satisfaction
  • Attractiveness
  • Sense of well being

This is important data because often times people don’t realize the many new positive results that often stem from a treatment such as Botox really occur. Although appearance is truly the main goal that most patients request from Botox treatments it is clear that there are a variety of other positive effects that the human body goes through. A positive increase in quality of life is something that can occure from a variety of facial cosmetic treatments that can lead to an ultimate change in lifestyle for many patients.
