The Face Of Emotion

By Eric Finzi

We have been communicating with others since the day we were born. Our facial expressions convey our emotions on a conscious and subconscious level: they are a language of their own. Without speaking a word; a frown, a burrowed brow or a smile can tell the world how you’re feeling. But is it possible that our facial expressions also dictate our own emotions? Can you change a person’s feelings by altering their facial expressions?

In The Face of Emotion, dermatologist Eric Finzi explores the power that facial expressions have on our mental health. He believes that regardless of the social situation, facial expressions can affect how you feel. If you smile while reading a book, you will develop positive memories of said book. If you’re prone to negative thoughts or frown a lot, you may find yourself to be unhappy and depressed.

By weaving together personal experience, clinical trials, theories of Charles Darwin and art, Finzi theorizes that by administering botulinum toxin A (Botox®) to the frown muscle, a person will frown less and become happier. The Face of Emotion strives to prove that theory but more than anything it is a deep exploration of what it means to be human.
