Young adults are turning to botox to fend off even the tiniest signs of skin ageing, experts have revealed.
A new survey by Glamour magazine found that nearly a third of respondents had tried botox and the number of people seeking age-defying non-surgical cosmetic treatments appears to be on the rise.
Adam Searle, former president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, told the magazine: "I've noticed a growing number of younger patients approaching ageing in an anticipatory way - meaning they want to prevent wrinkles rather than treat them."
One such patient is Nicola Brookes, who has been using restylane since she was 28.
"Even as young as 24 I'd look in the mirror and see fine lines and wrinkles. I decided that prevention is better than cure so booked in for restylane injections," she revealed.
Ms Brookes told Glamour that the treatments are not overly expensive when compared with the amount she spends on clothes and make-up.
She added: "I get a real buzz out of it because I know I look so much better."
