The number of young women getting Botox and cosmetic surgery to prevent ageing is increasing. A recent study by ABC News has found that the amount of 20 to 30 year-old women receiving Botox treatment has risen ten per cent in a year’s time. Out of the 6.1 million injections performed in 2012, nearly 100,000 were given to young women in their 20s.
Preventative treatments are becoming increasingly common as women battle the signs of ageing. The most targeted areas are around the eye, where crow’s feet form, and between the eyebrows. Smile lines are another common problem area. Other facial cosmetic procedures help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin, including facelifts and necklifts, but non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatments are by far the most popular.
There are a number of ways young women can retain a youthful appearance. Avoiding excessive exposure to the sun, maintaining a healthy weight and not smoking can keep skin firm and glowing.
