When it comes to Botox, particularly Botox for frown lines, we must consider the chicken and the egg question. What does Botox have to do with chickens and eggs, you may ask? Well, it’s to do with the old question of which came first. The chicken or the egg?

You would think that your happiness is down to your mindset but it just so happens that scientific research points towards the opposite being true. Botox for frown lines has mood-boosting abilities and ridding ourselves of negative expressions, like scowling, can make us happier.


Studies Have Shown…

Coles recently proved this by combining data from 138 studies and over 11,000 participants. The results were exciting as they show that smiling more does actually make you happier, but also that scowling and frowning more will make you feel sadder. 

Whatever your thoughts on this study are, it’s my opinion that they show how the mind and body interact to shape our feelings. Unsurprisingly, many factors have been shown to influence our emotions, so you may not be able to smile your way to happiness. However, I’ve witnessed something in my patients who get regular Botox treatments – they smile more and frown less!

Many of my patients have Botox for frown lines. As a result of treating this area, they aren’t able to frown fully, but that’s not to say that they can’t still move their muscles. A ‘frozen’ look would be quite strange – but they certainly can’t scowl anymore. Apart from boosting their confidence levels, this also seems to make them happier!


The Evidence Is Clear

I did some digging and it seems that there is proof that Botox treatments may have other mood-altering effects. In particular, reducing anxiety levels and depression. There are several theories on why this happens and while none of them are proven, what is certain is that patients in these studies benefited from Botox for frown lines. 

It seems that my patients are right – their treatments aren’t just for aesthetic purposes, but they also help to lift their mood and give them confidence in the things they do that matter so much to them. Socialising, going for a job interview or even a date night feels different when your mood is better. It’s simply sunshine in a vial!

“Hi Nichola, I don’t know if you remember but I had tear trough treatment back in November. I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I was initially fairly pleased with the results but now am delighted! The darkness has all but gone even without make-up. I am so much more confident than before.”


“My wrinkled lined face caused me great distress for many years! An opportunity arose to attend an open day with Dr Nichola Maasdorp. I was introduced to different treatments to reduce these lines. Following treatment my lines are smoother and I am very pleased with the results.
I would recommend facial enhancement treatment with Dr Nichola Maasdorp.”
