The selfie culture is apparently driving young people to cosmetic botox in double digit numbers, according to a new study.

As Fox News Radio reports:

Last year, Americans spent an eye-watering $2.95 billion on Botox, up from just over $1 billion in 2012. Much of that drive comes from young people, according to a recent report, which found a 28-percent increase in 20-somethings getting Botox between 2010 and 2017, and a 32-percent increase in the same group getting fillers. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine show there is reason to be concerned that people may be driven to edit their own faces because they feel inadequate compared to impossibly pristine faces that stream across their phones.

Thanks to our friends at Fox News Radio, Cosmetic Aesthetic Nurse Chelsee Maxwell joined us live on Montana Talks to talk about this issue. Click below for audio:
