топик Topic Botox Use by Teens

In 2005, nearly three million American women and men had Botox Injections to help them look younger. Since 2000, though, a new trend has been emerging: the use of Botox by teenagers just out of high school.

Botox is a chemical substance that is injected into a person’s face to smooth facial wrinkles. It works by paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles to form. Botox injections usually cost about $300 and last about four months.

Botox can be used to treat serious medical conditions, but most people only know about its ability to prevent wrinkles. The government approved its cosmetic use about 10 years ago, and doctors think it is safe and effective.

Teenagers who decide to use Botox have accepted society’s view that only the young and those who look young are beautiful. Magazines and movies have convinced them and many others that they must look young and beautiful to succeed in the world. They also see their mothers, their older sisters, and even their fathers using Botox as a way to stay younger looking.

These teenagers think that Botox will help them look young for a longer time. They save their money from part-time jobs or ask their parents for money to pay for the injections, which can add up to over $1,000 a year.

Other people believe that society’s  obsession with youth is not good for anyone. They believe that too many of today’s teenagers think more about how they look than about how they can contribute to society. They also worry that using Botox will soon be as common as getting a haircut or going shopping.

As long as society views staying young as the highest form of self-improvement, more and more young people will turn to Botox to keep looking young.
