The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery said Botox treatments for millennials increased by 41?percent between 2011 and 2015.
The group maintains more individuals age 19 to 34 are seeking the aid of the drug botulinum toxin, commonly called Botox.
“Patients often point to the natural lines on their face – the ones created from raising eyebrows for example,” Sofia Lyford-Pike, facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in the Department of Otolaryngology in the University of Minnesota Medical School, said. “They don’t want them.”
Lyford-Pike said increased accessibility and acceptability has contributed to the rising trend in the wake of plastic surgery and procedures like Botox becoming more socially accepted.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if someday soon going to get Botox was as common-place as heading to the hair or nail salon,” Lyford-Pike said.
