According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 12,000 teens received Botox injections in the last year.

Well since Botox is used cosmetically to get rid of wrinkles, I can't imagine why teens would even need it. I'm 53 & I really still have no wrinkles.

DH used to work next to a place that did 'lipodissolve'; he said there was a constant parade of teens going in there.

My son has a form of Cerebral Palsy called Spastic Diplegia and Botox injections are an accepted treatment.
