Botox for teens?!?

Would you get Botox injections before wrinkles even appeared? Apparently well over ten thousand teens have answered "yes" with great enthusiasm. Last year the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found 11,889 cosmetic Botox/Dysport procedures were performed on patients age 13 to 19! That's a lot of wrinkle-prevention!

Although I may not look as youthful as our Peer Leaders, going under the knife for a nip and tuck is honestly the last thing on my mind. Even the thought of Botox makes me squirm.

Seriously, what do you think? Should teens be "Toxing?" If you are one of our teen readers, have you ever done this? Would you consider it?

  1. Well first off i won't get Botox cause i have a fear of needles and 2nd i not really caring how i look when I'm 70. Just wondering "will i have accomplish something amazing", but if you do want to get botox its okay. Your image is piece of you but not the whole. What inside is basically the whole of who you are, so DON'T FORGET THAT! Another thing, i not positive but most likely botox is expensive. If you are worrying about skin in the next so may years, BE HEALTHY AND TAKE OF YOURSELF, like the rest of your body so that you and your body can prosper through the next stages of your life.
