Twenty-four-year-old Natalie Garcia started using Botox two years ago. Why would anyone that age turn to Botox? You may be surprised to learn that Botox can prevent future wrinkling. “I like having nice skin, it makes me feel confident, so why not? When my skin actually starts aging, during my later years, I think it’ll be beneficial.” Natalie is not the only 20-something to use Botox. CBS Chicago, Dec. 4, 2012, reports on the growing trend of young people who get Botox injections to prevent wrinkles, not to erase them.
This trend is not limited to women. Twenty-seven-year-old Blake Troiani started getting Botox injections this year. “Forehead lines were my biggest concern. I think they make you look older, a little more tired.” Since receiving his injections, he’s enjoyed compliments from family and friends that he looks rejuvenated and much younger.
