Is Everyone Getting Botox?

Is everyone getting botox?


What does your beauty treatment look like? It probably the occasional eyebrow waxes, ritually cleansing and moisturizing your face, and monthly face mask. This may be surprising, but women are adding regular Botox treatments to their routine, even women under 30! Beauty bloggers everywhere are showcasing their skin after treatment, giving us a social benchmark of what is trending.

Is There An Age Limit?

If you think only woman with fine lines use botox then know that 30 percent of Botox users are in their twenties according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. As a whole this minimally invasive surgery was given 6.7 million times in 2015.

It’s a common perception that Botox is used for anti-aging purposed, but that is not the only purpose is serves.

So why would anyone under 30 have a use for it before they have wrinkles? Botox is actually used wrinkle prevention to stop any lines from forming.  Yes, the fountain of youth may have been tapped into. According to Dr. Cory Togerson, facial plastic surgeon,

“Botox is also popular as a preventative measure against ageing. Patients who begin to use Botox in their 20’s and 30’s will have less fine lines and wrinkles in the Botox targeting areas because the muscles will be relaxed and unable to produce their wrinkles.”

Anti-aging treatment.

The public’s perception of cosmetic or plastic surgery has drastically for the better. Botox has only been on the market for 14 years and the stigma it once had has been erased and the product has been embraced by most.

It’s Going Viral

We live in an age a technical innovation. Anyone can share their every thought via social media, and let’s be honest; we all have that one friend who gets an eye roll with every comment they post. But it’s not all bad, users have used social media as a platform to share their beauty treatments like Botox which have helped decreased some of the common myths associated with it.

Of course, the rise of social media has also increased the desire for woman to look like the flawless women who have gotten beauty treatments.

If you do decide to prevent wrinkles or need an anti-aging treatment then Botox is a tried and true source.
