More Young People Want Botox

Mark Kohout - Tuesday, August 27, 2013
A 10% rise in the number of young people seeking anti-wrinkle injections was recorded in America and Australia this year. The Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA) said 28% of all non-surgical cosmetic treatments are now performed on people under 30 years of age. However, the younger a patient uses a neurotoxin such as Botox, the more of the substance they may need in later life. A German study in the Journal of Neural Transmission found over-use of neurotoxins led to an increased immunity over time, requiring a higher dose for the same effect. The CPSA’s Dr Susan Austin recommended women wait until at least 30 to begin such treatments. In Australia, Botox must be administered by a doctor or a nurse under a doctor’s supervision. However, that has not stopped some practitioners without medical training conducting the procedures. A doctor is required to investigate a patient’s psychological and physical suitability for the treatment. Neuromuscular disorders or pregnancy are situations where it should be avoided. http://www.cossurgery.com.au/2013/06/12/a-rise-in-demand-for-botox-in-young-people/
