  • A survey by the AAFPRS suggested that the most common cosmetic procedure for women under 35 were Botox (Xeomin, Dysport) neuro-modulator injections at 64% followed by dermal fillers with many facial plastic surgeons reporting an increase in these injectables as well as plastic surgery in patients under 25 years of age.
