VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Younger women are embracing Botox injections that promise to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

Annual statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons said Botox injections have seen a 28 percent increase since 2010 in people from age 20 to 29.

In Virginia Beach, Dr. Jeff Arbuckle said he’s seeing more woman in their 20s and 30s come in for Botox injections at Fountain of You.

“I think it’s a good idea for most people. If they address their muscular contractions early on in life, they may never develop a wrinkle later in life,” Arbuckle said.
