Botox may dampen the Ability to Sympathize.

wrinkle face; old face In the recent past, I had noticed that a barber while shaving the beard in the critical areas of face, instructing his customer to keep lips in a particular position, and once he did that, the lips of the barber assumed the same position with concentration, so that he might not injure the lips of his customer. That amused as well as taught me.
While recently, I was screwing a bolt; became conscious of my facial movements to support my hand movements. People have been seen crying in theatres while watching very pathetic scenes.
What I want to emphasize that while watching others having some sort of expression in their face in a particular situation, we as onlookers, share or so to say get involved into that situation. We sympathize with similar sort of expression in our face.
On the other side of the story, while we laugh or become angry, facial muscles react with contraction/ relaxation and we receive similar feeling within us in our mind.
There is some connection in that way. Recently, it has been seen that those who got Botox injected to face to abolish wrinkles, do not feel the emotions of other people to the fullest extent.
Botox is a toxin derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum that paralyses the muscles by blocking the nerve signals. It is used to smooth the face and other beauty spots of body like neck, where the muscles are in a state of contraction; visible as wrinkles; as person ages. There is also loss of elastic tissue components of skin, loss of fat and moisture to add to the problem.
A recent research concludes , I quote, “Botox has been at times described as giving users a poker face. But a reputation of turning users into Stepford Wives (or husbands, boyfriends, bosses, grandmas etc.) would have the potential to spread rapidly, and be hard to combat.”
