A girl in her thirties is always a little scared she will start to look like her mother. In all honesty this fear probably has less to do with taking on mom’s genetic features and more about looking older. When that first gray hair arrives or the slightest wrinkle makes its appearance, it can send some women into an emotional tailspin; and this explains why The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery says more and more young people are now seeking plastic surgery to prevent the signs of aging before they start.
There are many trends in cosmetic surgery. Some people want to look like their favorite movie star, some just want a few “tweaks” done, and others get work done on a regular basis. Now you can add young people between the ages of 19-34 to the list of plastic surgery trendsetters, as individuals within this demographic have become increasingly interested in Botox and resurfacing procedures to make sure their overall appearance stays youthful.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that Botox procedures in the 19 to 34 age range have doubled over the past ten years – and furthermore, other studies suggest that those between the ages of 18 and 24 are the most likely out of any age group to approve of plastic surgery overall. Some women begin a regimen in their early twenties that involves Retin-A (a topical treatment that clears up acne and helps prevent breakouts), while those worried about uneven skin tone, fine lines or enlarged pores often receive recommendations for laser resurfacing treatments, such as Fraxel. According to manufacturers, these laser procedures are “a safe, noninvasive way to rediscover the fresh, healthy skin of your youth;” and while there is some resultant swelling and required recovery time, such treatment is both non-invasive and significantly less expensive than other, more extensive surgical procedures.
It’s not just facial skincare that drives youngsters to consider preventative cosmetic treatment. Some dermatologists are seeing a bump in the number of patients wanting injectables like Restylane, which is put in around the jawline to lift sagging jowls. Botox is also a hot ticket with the young crowd. This injectable is affordable, has little recovery time and wipes away those first fine lines and wrinkles.

It seems the new motto for the young is, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure;” and while certain procedures are entirely appropriate for younger patients, anyone considering laser resurfacing or injectable treatment should first consult a board certified plastic surgeon to ensure maximum safety and satisfaction.
