PEOPLE WITH BOTOX CAN'T READ OTHERS' EMOTIONS:

Botox may reduce its users' ability to read other people's emotions, U.S. researchers say. Botox paralyzes facial muscles, and researcher David Neal suggested having a less expressive face may make someone less able to read other faces. Neal and his colleague worked with two groups of subjects. One tested 31 women who had been treated with either Botox or Restylane, a skin filler, and the other a somewhat larger group of women and men given a gel that amplifies muscle action. The subjects were asked to say what emotions they saw on a group of faces. "When the facial muscles are dampened, you get worse in emotion perception, and when the facial muscles are amplified, you get better at emotion perception," Neal said. (UPI)
