An alarming trend is rising out of social media, which sees girls as young as 17 begin receiving Botox injections as a “preventative method” from ever getting wrinkles in the first place.

Dermatologist at Central Sydney Dermatology and past president of the Australasian College of Dermatologists┬áProfessor Stephen Shumack told Tom Elliott there’s no point using Botox until you actually have wrinkles.

“It’s all out there on social media.

“It certainly works to settle wrinkles further on in life.”
