Botox use soars among US teens and 20-somethings

Botox treatment

It was already one of the most popular and best known anti-wrinkle treatments around, but now Botox is gaining popularity as a preventative measure among the young.

In the United States, anti-wrinkle injections are becoming the must-have procedure for young people in their twenties, and even teens, who are looking to prevent wrinkles before they’ve started to emerge.

By pre-empting the telltale signs of ageing, and getting in before they have a chance to take hold, young people hope to avoid wrinkles altogether.

Figures released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that Botox treatment has seen a massive increase of almost 800% among teenagers between 2008 and 2010.

And among women in their 20s, Botox injections increased by more than 11% to 78,000 in 2010 alone.

Only time will tell if this super-early intervention proves fruitful for the forward thinking youth of America, and keeps them “forever 21”.
