Botox An Addiction?

New research finds that while Botox may erase wrinkles and restore youthful good looks, it may just be an addiction-inducing substance.

Dr Carter Singh, who has a degree in psychology and is based at Derbyshire Royal Infirmary, and the consultant plastic surgeon Martin Kelly, of London Plastic Surgery Associates, said in a new study that four out of 10 people using botox treatments do so repetitively.

Reacting to the findings, Dr Judy Evans, a plastic surgeon at the Nuffield Hospital in Plymouth, said, "People come to have Botox because they are worried about ageing and then they get told they look younger and healthier by their friends and family, so they do actually start to 'feel' younger. They rely on Botox to help them achieve that feeling."

The findings of the study will be presented at the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons conference in London on Friday.
