Botox use among teens, ages 13 to 19, increased 20 percent in 2010, and since the year 2000, injections have risen by 680 percent.

According to one Washington DC doctor, most of the requests are accompanied by a parent’s permission.

Sometimes the procedure is for something that can be considered medical, like profuse underarm perspiration or a twitchy eye.

Often, however, it’s for cosmetic purposes.

There are lip fills, reshaping jawlines, and wrinkle eradication. Some say they do it to prevent having problems later.

If everything’s gone as planned, even close observers wouldn’t be able to tell for sure that a little work’s been done.

Remarked the same plastic surgeon, "I tell them if your mom during Thanksgiving dinner can tell that I did anything on you then I have failed."

No doubt, there’s a lot of pressure on teens to look good, especially in light of the fact that most of their life is made public via social media photo posting.

Taking to the needle as a way to calm insecurities has many wondering how not finding a better way to cope with self doubt will play out in the future.
