Botox stops frowning and makes one happier—study
Botox not only erases wrinkles but also tricks your brain into making you feel happier, reveals a path breaking study by researchers from the University of Wisconsin, U.S. The very common anti-wrinkles treatment, working to smoothen fine lines by paralyzing face muscles, forces people to stop frowning when they are unhappy. The underlying theory here is that if one is unable to physically frown then the brain feels there may be less to frown about, scientists claim. More
