Do botox treat mild & medium depression partially or its un proved  discovery or researches?

Too soon to tell.: The suggestion that it might help was found in a very, very small study. There needs to be a lot more research and larger studies to see if there is any benefit. It appears that some people may be able to enroll in studies being done to test for this. See http://www.centerwatch.com/clinical-trials/listings/condition/164/depression ...Read more
