"Botox in your 20s is pointless, skin in your 20s is incredibly elastic," Dr Freeman, a member of the Australasian College of Dermatologists, said. "Botox is great once you have wrinkles." Using Botox at an early age also risked the one in 20 chance of developing antibodies to botulinum toxoid. "If you use Botox over your whole life there is a 6% chance that you develop antibodies so it won't work later on," he said.
Dr Freeman also warned young women risk getting flabby skin. "If you overfill and plump up like some of these young women you run the risk of distorting tissue that ends up flabby," he said.
If you overfill you run the risk of distorting tissue that ends up flabby. "It would be better to train not to use those frown muscles, put a piece of sticky tape between your eyebrows and when you frown you can feel it, so you can learn not to use those muscles. There are positive things young women can do; if you are a smoker, stop; wearing sunscreen will do more to protect your beauty than anything else and explore makeup if you want to change your appearance." Dr Naomi McCallum, a self-proclaimed "doll-maker" from the Manse Clinic in Paddington, said 40 per cent of her clientele were in their 20s and influenced by the likes of Kylie and Kendall Jenner. At Sydney's Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, Dr Garry Cussell said his under-30 clients for Botox and fillers had grown from 27 per cent to 36 per cent since 2015.
