Young Women Are Jumping on the Botox Bandwagon

image

Maybe I’ve watched too many episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but I’ve typically thought of Botox as a treatment used mostly by middle-aged women looking to erase or fight wrinkles. So recently I was shocked to hear that women as young as 25 are starting to go under the needle. What gives? I interviewed Dr. Mitchell Chasin, a cosmetic physician, to find out more about this surprising new trend.
