I've noticed a growing trend in the skincare arena here in New York City after attending a few recent events. Botox and fillers are appealing to an ever-younger demographic for maintenance and preventative measures. I'm well aware the Botox craze is nothing new, but it is interesting to see it filter down to the 20-something crowd. For medical spas, it provides a valuable source of potential new clients looking for 'baby Botox' to prevent hard-to-treat wrinkles from forming in the first place, and doctors will recommend starting in mid- to late-twenties for best wrinkle-fighting results. I fear some will take it too far in the search for enduring youth and sacrifice the ability to express emotion, as the video here shows quite clearly.
