Some millennials keen on preserving their youth are turning to Botox to smooth away hints of creases on their faces before they become more pronounced.
A recent survey of American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery members reported a surge in patients under 30 getting “preventative Botox.”
And it appears to be a broader trend. Toronto-based cosmetic plastic surgeon Cory Torgerson, whose practice focuses on the face and neck, said he’s “definitely seeing” it.
“The (millennials) are cued in to preventative maintenance and are engaging in injectable cosmetic procedures more commonly in their 20s and 30s,” said Torgerson.
