'Worrying' trend of DIY cosmetic treatments

Women are happy to carry out non-invasive cosmetic surgery treatments such as Botox™ on themselves, it has been suggested.

A survey conducted by the Good Surgeon Guide found that 22 per cent of women would be happy to inject Botox™ into their own face.

This compares with just 11 per cent who would be willing to carry out the less risky procedure of cutting their own hair.

Christiana Clogg, founder of the website, said that the "results of our latest research really worry me".

She added: ""We wanted to emphasise the lengths people would go to and to find that more people would inject [themselves] with Botox than cut their own hair is really shocking."

Fortunately, the majority of women who replied to the survey appeared to be more cautious.

A total of 54 per cent said that they would consider Botox™ so long as it was carried out by a professional.
